Imagining Likely Scandals for President Trump
Donald Trump has ran a campaign that's transparently racist, xenophobic, and misogynistic, as well as nonsensical. He's also promoted violence at his rallies. Despite 63 percent of the country having a negative opinion of him, he's essentially neck and neck with Clinton according to some polls. What does this say about America? That we hate Hillary Clinton so much that we're considering voting in a mop-headed buffoon that essentially a caricature of a demagogue? I dunno. I've stopped long ago trying to make sense of things. Instead, I'd like to speculate on likely scandals that a Trump administration would have to endure.
