Another smug, inwardly corrupt but outwardly upstanding institution falls into the hands of a sloppy/horny second-generation rich-kid sadist. We love seeing it, and we really are seeing it very strongly.
It would seem that, given what we're learning about the NRA and Liberty University, there's a pretty good market--per --for grifting on the right. Does the left experience anything like this?
There's a cringeworthy passage in here I thought about sending out as a screenshot, but I'm worried it would wreck a lot of people's breakfasts.
More than two dozen current and former high-ranking Liberty University officials and close associates of Jerry Falwell Jr. spoke with Politico Magazine to detail allegations of self-dealing, inappropriate behavior with employees, and more.

There's something oddly comforting in learning that so many high-profile Trump supporters are just run of the mill grifters. They're still awful people. But raw greed at least makes sense. Actually believing in Trump is so much harder to process.
