Rumours are circulating that documentation showing US President-elect Donald Trump and Russian prostitutes engaging in sexual shenanigans has surfaced. The media, of course, is running with it. What is it about sex that creates such a scandal?
Does no one remember the exploits of JFK, Eliot Spitzer, Bill (I never had sexual relations with that woman) Clinton, and Arnold (impregnating the family nanny), Schwarzenegger, just to name a few? Does anybody care about these transgressions after the dust settles? Spitzer did resign as Governor of New York, but Bill Clinton still makes millions of dollars as a motivational speaker and Schwarzenegger is still Governor of California.
Are these allegations about Trump enough to boot him out of office? Don’t get me wrong, I find Trump’s behaviour reprehensible and disgusting. Did everyone not know before and during the electoral process what an immoral, rude, crass, egotistical person he is? I guess anyone who voted for him did not think those qualities should prevent him from becoming the president of the United States.
Hopefully, further investigation will come up with something more incriminating than lewd sexual acts with a few prostitutes. Maybe this current scandal is a coverup for something much more sinister and dangerous, starting with election fraud, lucrative business (real estate) deals, and/or leaking of security details to and from the Kremlin.
I am betting we have just seen the tip of the iceberg! Regardless, who really cares about the (alleged) activities between Trump and Russian prostitutes? Not me! Not that I like the man but this is just another sad example of mud-slinging politics.
