Most presidential campaigns fall apart under the weight of a single gaffe or shocking revelation. Donald Trump has proven to be the T-1000 of presidential bids. He furiously marched forward in spite of bullet wounds and a missing leg. His campaign is like if the Titanic was sinking, then got struck by a meteor, and then there were vampires, and it still didn’t fully submerge until it was a mile away from Liverpool.
I collected every insane story to make headlines since he accepted the Republican nomination. I will now present them all to you. I’ve grouped them into eight categories, each representing a different way the Trump campaign shat all over itself. I don’t have the confidence to claim that this is a definitive list. There were so many stories of ineptitude and repugnance that it was often difficult to keep pace. I did the best I could. Trump, on the other hand, did not.
So grab yourself a stiff drink and hunker down in your comfiest chair, because if you plan on reading about every single instance in which the Trump campaign proved itself to be the most spectacular disaster in American political history, you’re going to be here a while. Good luck, try to enjoy, and please vote.
