9 'Weiner Gate' Tweets That Show Donald Trump Supporters Are Really Happy About This New Email Investigation
Donald Trump's campaign has had a catastrophic past three weeks. While the businessman has been embroiled in a seemingly endless list of scandals during the entire election, the slew of controversies he faced in October have hit his campaign harder than any previous stories, and have almost completely eliminated his chances of winning on Nov. 8.
