Every president of the United States there’s ever been has had skeletons in his closet. It’s been suggested that George W Bush ‘dodged the draft’. Thomas Jefferson allegedly fathered children with one of his slaves. Andrew Jackson killed a man in a duel. And remember Jimmy Carter’s peanut farm?
It’s always expected that the latest president will have their share of regrets, of memories of which they’d rather not be reminded. Nobody’s infallible and everyone has a history, something that’s true of even the most sainted commanders-in-chief (even liberal poster boy JFK was a serial womaniser).
