      Once upon a time, news that the President of the United States had an affair with a porn star, that he paid her off with $130,000, and lied about it would have been the biggest story of the year. That this is just accepted by Trump’s supporters as another incident to be disregarded in a long line of similarly incredulous incidents just goes to show how low the bar has been set.
    I think this "bar" you mention is in your imagination.

Ah, we're about to begin the whataboutism from you, your specialty in deflecting criticism.

    Senator Ted Kennedy killed a woman, and was afterward consistently a Democrat hero, winning multiple re-elections.

Uh, this was a huge, huge story at the time so you're wrong. All you've done is change the goal post from big media story to how supporters reacted. Different things.

    Bill Clinton violently beat and raped multiple women, and silenced one of them with a pay off for $850,000. Yet he arrived to the Democratic national convention to thunderous applause.

This is totally misleading. Clinton's $850,000 was a very public settlement over a sexual harassment lawsuit that was dismissed by the court. Trump tried to buy off a porn star's silence under the table.

    We can go back to the founding of the republic and look at the Maria Reynolds' affair, which did not diminish Alexander Hamilton's image to his supporters.

Goal post moving again.

    Not only is there no bar in existence (neither high, nor low), but such a bar never existed except when the bar could be used as a political weapon.

All I see is you excusing abhorrent behavior by saying both sides do it so it doesn't matter.
