This US presidential election is nothing less than a soap opera, where anything and everything is possible. The best thing is that both the presidential aspirants are taking each and every controversy in their stride.
Wikileaks nails Clinton
The Wikileaks on Friday released over 2,000 emails from Democratic presidential nominee, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
"At first inspection the emails date as far back as 2008 to 2016 and cover the gamut from the mundane like "Hillary Clinton's Chipotle Order" to "Call with HRC" to "My position on the Iran deal" sent from Nancy Rotering to John Podesta," writes the RT.
This is what the internet whistleblowing group, Wikileaks, tweeted:
Clinton earned more than $22 million on the paid speaking circuit
According to The Intercept, Clinton was paid upwards of $225,000 per speech and earned more than $22 million on the paid speaking circuit.
Trump's shocking lewd comments on tape
By now the Republican presidential nominee, Trump, has well-established himself as an anti-women politician, with his never ending sexist comments. The latest is a 2005 video obtained by The Washington Post, where Trump was found talking about women in vulgar terms.
The New York Times, writes, "Donald J. Trump boasted in a 2005 conversation about pushing himself on women and kissing and groping them, remarks that were caught on a live microphone and widely circulated on Friday."
This is how Twitter reacted to Trump's lewd audio recording:
