Trump has sunk far below the already-low bar he set for himself in his ugly campaign.
Trump and his cronies do so many despicable things that it can be hard to keep track.
No one, not even the most powerful leader, is above the law
Trump made 125 false or misleading statements in 120 minutes, according to The Washington Post—a personal record for him (at least since becoming president).
it’s amazing how blithely the president and his Cabinet have piled up conflicts of interest, abuses of power, and blatant violations of ethics rules.
They've used their money and influence to capture our political system, impose a right-wing agenda, and disenfranchise millions of Americans.
Hillary Clinton ramped up her appeals to rich donors and shrugged off restrictions that President Obama had imposed on his fundraising team. Even as her advisers fretted about the perception that she was too cozy with wealthy interests, they agreed to let lobbyists bundle checks for her campaign, including those representing some foreign governments, the emails show. Top aides wooed major donors for super PACs, taking advantage of the leeway that campaigns have to legally collaborate with the groups on fundraising. The effort paid off. Together with the party and pro-Clinton super PACs, the Democratic nominee had amassed $1.14 billion to support her campaign by the end of September — on par with what Obama and his allies brought in for his 2012 reelection bid.
For example, Trump’s corruption should teach us that all future candidates for president and presidents themselves should be required by law to release their tax returns.

What? No place to post comments on the article? What a surprise.
Actually, I think it's a hilarious piece of work. Very funny. Could be published in The Onion. The most astounding thing about her even now is her total and complete lack of self-awareness. It's like she exists on an entirely different plane than her own self.
If that's even possible.
Which, I guess, really is not.
Unless you happen to be HIlary Clinton. Or Maxine Waters. Or Nancy Pelosi. or that Jackson woman.
This really should be tagged #nottheonion.
There’s voter suppression, as Republicans put onerous—and I believe illegal—requirements in place to stop people from voting.
Over many years, our defenses were worn down by a small group of right-wing billionaires—people like the Mercer family and Charles and David Koch—who spent a lot of time and money building an alternative reality where science is denied, lies masquerade as truth, and paranoia flourishes. By undermining the common factual framework that allows a free people to deliberate together and make the important decisions of self-governance, they opened the way for the infection of Russian propaganda and Trumpian lies to take hold.
