Donald Trump statement.
Now on the other hand Thomas Eagleton who was vice presidential candidate when George McGovern ran for president was outed as having had electric shock treatment and bouts of depression. Today that would probably be a plus but in those days, 1972, it was scandalous and very damaging. After the disclosure Eagleton was quoted as saying “I have torn the word quit out of my dictionary.” McGovern supported him and two weeks later he was toast and now only an asterisk for that election.
Trump…. who knows?
