2016 Election: Part II

2016 Election:  Part II

Storyboard Text

  • When you're famous, you can do whatever you want -- you can grab 'em by the pussy!
  • Because you'd be in jail!
  • It's good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump isn't in charge of the law in our country...
  • Hillary Clinton receives more bad publicity when she is caught appearing to collapse due to illness as she is leaving a 9/11 memorial event in New York City. It is later revealed she had pneumonia, which raised questions about her health and her lack of transparency.
  • Madame President
  • On October 7th, a bombshell dropped when a 2005 video was released, showing Donald Trump talking crudely about women to an interviewer from 'Access Hollywood.' In complete disbelief, the Republican Party revolted against its candidate, with many asking him to leave the ticket. Trump eventually apologized, marking the only time he would apologize for any of his antics throughout the campaign.
  • MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN
  • MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN
  • The three debates between Clinton and Trump were some of the most contentious presidential debates in American history. The second one came immediately after the 'Access Hollywood' scandal and was particularly controversial, as Trump invited women who had previously accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct and then stood behind Mrs. Clinton on stage in an effort to intimidate her. Pundits agreed that Clinton won the debates by demonstrating a stronger understanding of policy and rattling her opponent.
  • On Election Day, Clinton was the heavy favorite to be elected 45th President of the United States, despite the Comey investigation. Trump's sexual harassment scandals and egregious behavior had seemingly doomed his campaign, and the New York Times gave Clinton an 85% chance to win.
  • Then, on Election Night, Trump pulled off one of the most stunning political upsets in modern history. Early returns signified that he had won the key states of Florida and North Carolina, and he then received enough electoral votes to pass 270 by winning Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin -- three states that Clinton felt were safely in her column (she did not even campaign in Wisconsin). In the end, Trump received 304 electoral votes to Clinton's 227.
  • TrumpPence
  • Just like his 2016 campaign, Trump's presidency has been unprecedentedly controversial. He has instituted a Muslim ban and a family separation policy at the Mexico border, and blew a racist dog whistle with his highly-criticized response to race riots in Charlottesville, Va. In addition, his administration was investigated over Russia's tampering in the 2016 election, and in December 2019, Trump was formally impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress in regards to a scandal involving Ukraine.
