Isn't Trump going into a civil trial for Trump University in December? How can someone run for President with a trial looming?? I've heard there are protests breaking out across the US, what a frightening time.
In all seriousness, the Clintons were mired in scandals their whole time in office. HRC was the first, and still only, FLOTUS to be subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury for her involvement in the Whitewater investigations. Not to mention the Clinton's involvement in Travelgate, Hillary's cattle futures scandal, and her most recent FBI investigations for her e-mail server. A lot of her supporters make excuses for all of these controversies, and often act as though it's all because she is a woman--or that Republicans are trying to take them down. Sure, but why didn't anything real ever come out about Obama? Why didn't he have rape accusers, be investigated for cronyism, why didn't Michelle get called before a federal grand jury? Trump's looming trial is hardly something new.
Trump is an absolute nightmare, and I believe will be far more dangerous for our country, but so many people were really foolishly overlooking Clinton's track record for shady deals and cronyism and making excuses for her. There's a huge swath of the population that would never have voted for her anyway, even if she were squeaky clean, but let's face it: she really lost because, in part, she is the very type of politician that people in the U.S. are sick of. And that is people on the (far) right to the (far) left and everything in between. Sucks that the political process is so corrupt--look no further than what happened at the DNC where they all but wiped out all competition for HRC. Big mistake, too. Bernie seemed to have real supporters that would've shown up to polls, not to mention a much more outsider stance.
