During Donald Trump’s four years in office, he represented America all over the world and never failed to embarrass himself, his aides, his administration, and the entire country. Now that he’s no longer in office, his absolute inability to behave like a grown man is still humiliating the country overseas.

According to those close to Trump, he has bragged both before leaving office and after that he has dirt on Emmanuel Macron regarding sex scandals tied to the French president. Among items seized from Mar-a-lago by the FBI, documents described as being classified at the highest levels, was information on Macron, according to the list of documents published by the Department of Justice. It is unknown at this time whether Trump is telling the truth about the intelligence he never should have seen, and it is unlikely that the full truth of his claims will ever be known providing that he has not already shared the information with others.
Rolling Stone reports that:
‘Specifically, Trump has bragged to some of his closest associates — both during and after his time in the White House — that he knew illicit details about the love life of French President Emmanuel Macron, two people with knowledge of the matter tell Rolling Stone. And the former president even claimed that he learned about some of this dirt through “intelligence” he had seen or been briefed on, these sources say.’
Just as a reminder: Donald Trump’s name has been tied to a large number of sex scandals. He left his first wife and three oldest children when he got another, younger woman pregnant with his fourth child. He left that wife and child for his current, much younger wife, Melania. He has since been revealed to have had multiple affairs while married to Melania, including with a Playboy bunny and an adult film star. He’s also been accused in court multiple times of having sexually abused or harassed a woman, including a woman who says she was a 14-year-old victim of Jeffrey Epstein’s at the time that Trump assaulted her. He famously bragged about being able to sexually assault women without consequence because of his celebrity status.
Twitter had a lot of thoughts on the reasons Trump might have wanted those documents. Read some of their comments below:
