First of all, why does adding “gate” to the end of a word make it a scandal? The Nixon Administration was undone by a break-in at the Watergate Hotel and since then, white people just lazily started adding “gate” to random words to demonize it. It doesn’t mean anything.

That’s probably why this woman at the Faux News Network quickly went to commercial when a lawyer started telling the truth.
