The Daily Show has been counting down for the past couple of weeks on President Donald Trump’s 100 most terrific scandals.
Thinning the list down to only 100 scandals must have been difficult. As correspondent and segment host Roy Wood Jr. put it, “Scandals. Every president’s had one. But while most presidents are only known for one big scandal, Donald Trump has truly changed the game.”
The list began with Trump trying to buy Greenland. Other highlights from four years of the Trump administration: Melania’s war on Christmas, picking a match with teen environmental activist Greta Thunberg, breaching clearance protocols for his daughter and son-in-law, calling U.S. soldiers who perished in combat “losers” and “suckers,” encouraging police brutality, and tweeting all the goddamn time.
The night before Election Day, The Daily Show finally got to the top 25. “These are the big ones. These are the scandals that are going to cement Donald Trump’s place in history books,” Wood, Jr. said. “Assuming history books are still allowed after November.” These are Donald Trump’s 10 most tremendous scandals.
