Conservative Controversies & Scandals

2017 Top\Worst Republican Controversies

  • Donald Trump made up the word "covfefe" on a tweet that he sent out at 12:06am while complaining about the negative press he receives. Trump tweeted again six hours later and asked his followers to figure out the definition of "covfefe," which isn't an actual word.
  • Donald Trump shared the highest level of classified information about the Islamic State with the Russian Foreign Minister and Ambassador during a meeting with the two in the oval office. The individual who provided the information did not give the Trump White House permission to share it with Russia and it is very possible that the source is now compromised. Government officials, speaking confidentially, claimed that the information Trump passed along was so secret that it hasn't been shared with our closest allies.
  • Donald Trump told a Reuters journalist that he thought being President would be easier and that he missed his old life of luxury. Trump said that he "loved [his] previous life. I had so many things going. This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier."
