We Can’t Stop Clicking on This Donald Trump Scandal Generator

It’s addictive.

 

For the last few months of this unforgettable campaign, Mother Jones has brought you the “The Trump Files,” a daily dose of telling episodes, strange-but-true stories, and curious scenes from the life of Republican nominee Donald Trump. The time Trump claimed he would have fared better in business as a black man? Covered it. His uplifting words to a grieving mother about how hard he’d once tried to sleep with her? That one, too. Or when Trump alleged an election had been rigged—that is, a race for Top Scot that was sponsored by a whiskey company? You bet. In all, we published more than 100 Trumpian tales. Unsure where to start? Click “hit me” below to generate a Trump File at random. The story link will appear below the image.

 

OUR NEW CORRUPTION PROJECT

The more we thought about how MoJo's journalism can have the most impact heading into the 2020 election, the more we realized that so many of today's stories come down to corruption: democracy and the rule of law being undermined by the wealthy and powerful for their own gain.

So we're launching a new Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption. We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We'll publish what we find as a major series in the summer of 2020, including a special issue of our magazine, a dedicated online portal, and video and podcast series so it doesn't get lost in the daily deluge of breaking news.

It's unlike anything we've done before and we've got seed funding to get started, but we're asking readers to help crowdfund this new beat with an additional $500,000 so we can go even bigger. You can read why we're taking this approach and what we want to accomplish in "Corruption Isn't Just Another Scandal. It's the Rot Beneath All of Them," and if you like how it sounds, please help fund it with a tax-deductible donation today.
