Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016 in part because voters perceived his opponent, Hillary Clinton, to be a dishonest, self-dealing phony.
Trump has now pulled off the improbable: He makes Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill look like ethical exemplars, compared with the corruption endemic in Trump’s administration.
Whatever you think of Trump, there was legitimacy to his call, back in 2016, to “drain the swamp” and bring fresh blood to Washington. Team Clinton, it turned out, was the perfect foil for Trump, thanks to Hillary Clinton’s six-figure Wall Street speechmaking, her shifty explanations for violating government policy by using a private email server, and the money flowing into the Clinton Foundation from shady dealmakers undoubtedly hoping for favors once Hillary ascended to the White House.
How quaint those Clinton controversies seem, compared with the Trump presidency.
The REASON the Clintons "look" clean compared to Trump is because they ARE clean compared to Trump and most other people. Republicans have lied about the Clintons for over 25 years. There is a reason why the Clintons have not been prosecuted for the things republicans claim they did, and it is not because the Clintons are so good at getting away with stuff. It is because the stuff are lies.
So Americans you have been bamboozled!!! And the press, who Trump is now castigating as badly as he is the Clintons, have been complicit in the bamboozling.
