There are many characteristics of Donald Trump that, if he gets elected, will certainly go down in history. He, for example, would be the first reality tv star to get elected. He would also be the first president in decades not to release his tax returns. My skeptical side, however, only finds one of these characteristics interesting. When compared to past presidents, Donald Trump will go down for seemingly embracing a metric fuckton of pseudoscience and conspiracy theories.
To demonstrate why I think this is the case, I decided to list five things that he has done that seem to put him in line with the David Ickes and the Jenny McCarthys of the world. Before I get started however, I want to note that I am only pointing out the five that I find the most concerning. There also many other examples of him embracing total bullshit. Some honorable mentions include his apparent rehashing of conspiracies about Hillary Clinton's health, Ted Cruz's citizenship, and Rafael Cruz (Sen. Cruz's father) assassinating JFK (which Trump later denied) and using Dr. Oz (lol) to calm concerns about his own health.
