Donald Trump is very angry that his inexperienced nominee to head the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs was forced to withdraw his acceptance of the nomination after reports surfaced that he had improperly dispensed medications, drank alcohol on the job, and harassed a female staffer at a hotel. Sen. John Tester (D-MT) spoke publicly about the allegations, so he is Trump’s new target of ire.
Sen. Tester did not actually make the accusations; Jackson’s colleagues did. Tester is also not the only person in Washington who spoke about those claims.
However, since Donald Trump thinks that speaking publicly about accusations before they’re investigated fully should force a politician to resign, it seems like a good time to review accusations Trump has made, for which he has not apologized, so that Trump can resign, as well.
- President Obama’s birth certificate is fake.
- Hillary Clinton “acid washed” her campaign’s computer servers.
- Joe Scarborough may have killed an intern at his Florida office.
- Ted Cruz’s father was involved in the death of JFK.
- A Miss USA winner had a secret sex tape.
- Amazon doesn’t pay taxes and uses the post office as a delivery service unfairly.
- President Obama had Trump’s phones wiretapped.
- The Central Park Five deserved the death penalty despite DNA evidence that cleared them.
- Undocumented immigrants, more than three million of them, voted illegally for Clinton.
- Andrew McCabe took $700,000 from Hillary Clinton.
- James Comey lied under oath to the FBI.
- The NYT’s Maggie Haberman lied about Michael Cohen to get him to flip on Trump.
Even with a list that lengthy, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Before Trump accuses others of making false accusations, perhaps he should wait until they’ve been proven untrue. Even better, he should wait until wrongdoing by his opponents are proven true before tweeting and ranting about those accusations publicly.
