Presidential scandals……it seems in recent history we have had more than our fair share of scandals around the White House.
Nixon it was Watergate and Agnew, Carter it was the hostages and peanut-gate, Reagan it was Iran-Contra, Clinton it was many most of them dealing with sex, Bush2 it was the lies for war and Obama…he had very little scandals other than the major news fakes…..and now we have a new president-elect, Donald Trump…..
It has been a little over a week since his victory and there has been nothing but confusion and contradictions and lies flying around Trump Tower…….how soon before we have our fist Trump Admin scandal?
On Monday, appearing at his first press conference since Donald Trump was made president-elect, Barack Obama spoke proudly about his administration’s track record, which was squeaky clean by two-term presidential standards. “I am very proud of the fact that we will—knock on wood—leave this administration without significant scandal,” he said. “We’ve made mistakes, there have been screw-ups, but I will put the ethics of this administration and our track record in terms of just abiding by the rules and norms, and keeping trust with the American people—I will put this administration against any administration in history.”
This admin is shaping up as one that will be the talk of the town for decades after it slides into the annals of history…..it is looking like these years will make the corruption and scandals during the Grant admin look like amateurs….(don’t know about those years? Read a damn book!)
For those that are too lazy to read that book…..
Scandals are nothing new….but I think this time it will epic even more so than the scandals of the Grant admin…..
