1. The quality of political news reporting and punditry took a nose dive

early in the George W. Bush era, it was beyond rock-bottom by the time Obama came on the scene, and today I don't even fuck with it anymore.

And it goes without saying that this sharp decline of news quality has an inverse relationship with the rising prominence and popularity of Fox News.

7. How about the Clinton/Lewinski scandal

24/7 from all media for an entire year. Fox calling Michelle "Obama's Baby Mama" also left a permanent bad taste in my mouth.

4. Oh yes, the scandals lol - there were just so many, where do we begin.....

Remember the time he used a binder clip?
September 2011: Never forget that time Obama used a binder clip. This may have been the most amazing scandal of the Obama presidency. At a Rose Garden news conference urging Congress to pass the American Jobs Act, Obama brandished a copy of the bill, and the New York Post somehow fixated ... on this.

5. That was actual presidential harassment.

I've noticed that Trump's appearance hasn't made that much news. What restraint! Real presidential harassment would be speculating that he wears spanx.
