If there is any at all overarching theme this situation has driven home, it is this: if you have flaws, just accuse your opponent of those very flaws first and frequently:
"Hillary bought and paid for"
(We literally dont know where trump, who has been bankrupt and bailed out seceral times, owes money because of his shadow network of accounts and refusal to release taxes; also hired way more wall street people that hillary was expected to)
"Pay for play is bad"
(Florida brought suit against trump u; trump made campaign donation to prosecuter, and tried to hide it from us by doing it illegally through charities; she drops case now will work for him)
"Clinton foundation corrupt"
(Trump foundation has received none of trumps money; is used to settle his personal suits)
"Bills settlement for 6 figures is proof of guilt!"
(Settles for millions in his fraudulent university case)
I mean itgoeson. There hasn't been more blatant hypocrisy, ever.
