Joe Biden could fire up a blunt on the White House lawn while barbecuing a passel of pandas and the nation’s last remaining supply of freeze-dried Roswell aliens, and he’d still have some catching up to do to match the lurching lawlessness of the Trump administration.
Donald Trump is an (alleged) lifelong criminal who, for some bizarre reason, still hasn’t faced justice. Could be that everyone already knows what a crook he is and they just shrug it off—sort of like when they find a stray hair in their Arby’s. Hey, it’s effing Arby’s. What’s the difference, really? Just eat around it.
So Donald Trump, who would likely qualify as the Arby’s of presidents if Arby’s had ever attempted to overthrow the U.S. government and install an autocratic family dynasty, is continually held to a lower standard by the press and the nation as a whole. If Hillary Clinton sneezed, the media instantly started asking about funeral arrangements. Meanwhile, Trump could show up to work every day looking like a mesh bag full of beluga earwax and sweating like Nixon’s nuts during debate prep, and those same folks would scarcely blink.
