The Ex-President Who Went to Court and Became His Own Star Witness

From a Washington Post Retropolis story by Ronald G. Shafer headlined “The ex-president who went to court and became his own star witness”:

Some 110 years before Donald Trump was arraigned in a federal court in Miami, Theodore Roosevelt was running to regain the White House, too. And a small-town newspaper absolutely hammered him.

“Roosevelt lies and curses in a most disgusting way; he gets drunk, too, and that not infrequently, and all his intimates know it,” read an October 1912 editorial in the Ishpeming (Mich.) Iron Ore, beneath the headline “The Roosevelt Way.”
