Yesterday, it was reported that Linda Tripp, a key figure in the presidential sex scandal that nearly brought down the administration of Bill Clinton, died at the age of 70
The death was confirmed by her son, Ryan Tripp, who declined to discuss other details. Acquaintances said she had been hospitalized for breast cancer.The Washington Post
it’s crazy to even grasp the impact this woman along with Matt Drudge and Lucianne Goldberg had on the last 20 years of politics. Without The scandal Gore maybe wins 2000. Gore is president during 9/11 maybe he wins ‘04 but maybe John McCain a war hero is elected to fight Al Qaeda and who knows what happens after that.
One thing I can almost guarantee, had this not been exposed Donald Trump never becomes President. The Clinton era normalizing debauchery moved the Overton window so much that personal failings became a minor inconvenience instead of a disqualifying factor.
