Every president of the United States has had skeletons in his closet. It's a historical fact that Thomas Jefferson fathered children with one of his slaves and Andrew Jackson killed a man in a duel.
Perhaps no President has stirred up more controversy than the 45th, and none have, arguably, lived such a relentless rollercoaster of an existence prior to becoming leader of the free world. In this spirit, we’ve gathered up a whole slew of photos that put Trump's presidency in a new light — with the stories that go with ’em included for your reading pleasure...
As far as we know, no photos exist of any other presidents with their arms around young women wearing form-fitting tops that bear the Hooters logo.
Trump made the trek to an Atlantic City branch of the restaurant chain in 2007 for a competition called Donald Trump’s Ultimate Deal Cash Giveaway. We're pretty sure his decision to be there had something to do with the fact that he’d have the opportunity to ogle a breast or two.
If we learned anything from Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, it’s that he thinks Hillary Clinton is a cancer on the American political landscape — but that wasn't always the case. The first photograph was taken at Donald and Melania's 2005 wedding and things look pretty cozy.
The second picture, featured on the inside cover of Trump's 1997 book The Art of the Comeback, is captioned “The First Lady is a wonderful woman who has handled pressure incredibly well.”
Trump doesn’t just hate Hillary: "Slick Willy" also received some choice barbs during Donald’s 2016 presidential bid. At one point, Trump even alleged that Bill was the “worst abuser of women in U.S. political history."
In the second shot, they're hanging out at the 2000 US Open, with future wife Melania and swimsuit model Kylie Bax joining them for the party. And the pair can also be seen enjoying a friendly round of golf together.
And next, Trump's not through hanging out with Bill and Hill just yet...
Trump may have "grabbed women by the pussy," but, according to him, nothing he's done compares in the slightest to what the Clintons had done over the years.
Here's another shot of when Hill and Bill both attended Trumps’s Mar-a-Lago wedding to Melania, a decade before Trump would begin his campaign to convince the American public that the Clintons are the devil incarnate. Could these four people possibly look any happier?
It's obvious that the 45th President of the United States finds it difficult to keep himself away from beautiful women – especially when so many have accused him of sexual assault!
Here, we see Trump indulging in one of his favorite pastimes: creeping on beauty pageant contestants. For the record, Culpo is one of a total of 19 women who have accused Trump of groping and other inappropriate behavior.
If there’s one thing that The Donald enjoys more than ceaselessly talking about himself, it’s being in the company of beautiful women. Some of these women actually get paid to hang around with Trump — while he talks about being Donald Trump!
Here's The Donald with Hugh Hefner, playmate Holly Madison, and wife Melania that obliterates the evangelical image of Trump as a wholesome family man. The second shot is of Trump and alleged mistress (and nude model) Karen McDougal. She claims, like a host of other women, to have been paid hush money in the run-up to the 2016 presidential contest.
And next, what's up with Trump flubbing the National Anthem? This is so weird...
A patriot like Trump would never disrespect America, but he has a bad habit of forgetting to pay attention to the National Anthem. While everyone else has got their hand across their heart, The Donald just stands there.
Maybe he didn't hear when the Star Spangled Banner started playing at this White House event? Or like in the second shot, he appears to have straight up fallen asleep on his feet — like a horse — at this CNN debate.
Here we see Trump enjoying a New York Mets game with then-girlfriend Melania Knauss. As we can see, a photographer managed to snap Trump just as he made a move to drain the young Melania’s life force, presumably so that he might live forever.
It’s not the first time Donald and Melania have been spotted taking PDA to a grotesque level, either. Here they are at different baseball game, with Donald once again having taken Melania’s head in a vice-like grip.
And next, remember when Trump put the smack down on Vince McMahone?
In the film Idiocracy, Terry Crews stars as a wrestler-turned-president of the US in the year 2505. Here in the real world, Trump is an actual president who was formerly a regular in the WWE.
Maybe this means the 45th will be able to wrestle issues like climate change? Don't hold your breath. Trump was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013.
Here, the 70-year-old Trump signs his name on a woman’s chest at one of his rallies. Can you imagine Franklin Delano Roosevelt doing something like this? Or the elder Bush for that matter?
Trump, on the other hand, is a "true American," and he’ll sign a woman’s bare skin if he wants to. Because according to The Donald, "This is America, and you can do whatever the hell you feel like."
And next, some revealing pictures from the past come back to haunt the 45th President of the United States...
Trump has publicly (and thoroughly) lambasted the elder Bush since he himself took the highest office in the land. Here's then-Vice President George HW Bush posing in less contentious times with a pre-Apprentice Trump.
Thirty years later at a campaign rally, Trump would ridicule George HW’s own presidential campaign, asking “What the hell was that?” Apparently, he forgot that he was a part of it.
Behold Donald and Ivanka Trump circa 1990, at a family event.
Then there's Trump and Ivanka in a more recent shot. And here's another with Ivanka at age 15 and her then-51-year-old father. Don't y'all just get a creepy vibe from these photos? I mean, come on, it looks like she’s giving him a lap dance!
The accusations that Trump rules this country like a gluttonous, self-indulgent tyrant aren’t helped by any of these pictures. Trump looks like a ravenous, fast-food-loving Jabba the Hutt!
Some Trump supporters have accused people laughing at pictures like these of "fat-shaming" the current US president. In rebuttal, we would like to point out that those supporters actually voted for his man.
In 2006, The Apprentice was big. Will & Grace was also at the height of its success, so the producers over at the Emmys decided to get the stars of those two wildly different shows together to sing the theme song from Green Acres.
For whatever reason, the producers got Megan Mullally to dress up like her Will & Grace character — socialite Karen Walker — for the performance. Instead of Trump in his usual business suit, they decided to deck him out country bumpkin-style.
Pope Francis said in 2016 of then-candidate Trump, that “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.” Predictably, Trump responded by calling the Pope “disgraceful."
At the taking of these photos, Pope Francis was reported to have muttered, “Let's just get this done."
These candids could almost be mistaken for promotional images from a zany new family comedy. Here, an uptight businessman is forced to do some soul-searching when he’s unexpectedly saddled with two disagreeable children. Regrettably, The Donald has never done any soul-searching.
But these aren't the only photos of children looking alarmingly discomforted in Trump’s presence. They're a dime a dozen on Google images.
This might look like a picture of Trump family bliss, with a much younger Donald posing with his siblings Robert, Elizabeth, Fred Junior and Maryanne. It hides a brewing family tragedy, however — Fred would die of complications from alcoholism at the age of 43.
Donald made sure that Fred was cut out of his father’s will for being such a disappointment, and that his children were also disinherited. Donald even blocked the payment of medical treatments for Fred’s severely disabled grandson, as revenge for Fred’s children suing the Trump estate for denying them their inheritance.
Donald Trump’s hair has been the subject of numerous conspiracy theories and even more late night comedy routines. Here, we take a rare look at what’s underneath Trump’s infamous comb-forward.
Trump’s hair appears so elaborately constructed, you have to wonder whether he spends more time styling it than he does doing his actual job — maybe that’s why his presidency has been such a disaster.
