%% Even within the Republican Party, Steve Bannon, Breitbart editor-in-chief and former chief strategist for Donald Trump, has caught a fair amount of the blame for the Democrats taking their first Alabama Senate seat in just over 23 years, and the gross embarrassment to the GOP that resulted from his backing of accused pedophile Roy Moore for that Senate seat, which has been cited as a deciding factor for Democratic candidate Doug Jones's close victory in the first place.
%%-->'''Steven Law''': This is a brutal reminder that [[EveryoneHasStandards candidate quality matters regardless of where you are running]]. Not only did Steve Bannon [[EpicFail cost us a critical Senate seat in one of the most Republican states in the country]], but he also dragged the President of the United States into this fiasco.

* UsefulNotes/MarieAntoinette, for the (in)famous "Let them eat cake" line [[BeamMeUpScotty that she didn't even say]]. Although she got loads of worse associations in the century after the revolution, based on what the libel pamphlets claimed she did. These days, historians note that she's being treated in an overly hagiographic way with recent portrayals such as ''Film/MarieAntoinette'' and ''Farewell, My Queen'' that she is known these days for "not" having said "let them eat cake" rather than the frivolous and wasteful spending of her and the court of Versailles while the rest of France suffered, something which made her notorious before, during, and after the French Revolution and contributed to the above misquote being attributed to her.

* Played with in regards to ''Chicago Tribune'' political analyst Arthur S. Hemming. While many today remember him mainly for the infamous "Dewey Defeats Truman" gaffe, it wasn't exactly memorable back then except that Harry S Truman was photographed smiling triumphantly while holding the paper with the erroneous headline, and when Hemming died his obituary made no mention of the incident.

* Adlai Stevenson is best known for preempting ''Series/ILoveLucy'' for a half-hour political advertisement. He ultimately lost to Dwight Eisenhower, who kept things short and sweet with a series of 20-second advertisements.

* Throughout history, UsefulNotes/WarrenHarding is best known solely for the many scandals to have plagued his presidency, not least of which was the infamous Teapot Dome Scandal which involved members of his own cabinet; Harding himself often lamented his election to the office and the various appointments he made coming into it, an especially unfortunate case as he himself never took part in the vast majority of these crimes[[labelnote:*]]He actually ''died'' before any of them came to light[[/labelnote]] and ultimately took the fall for them.

** UsefulNotes/TheSpanishInquisition. Doubles as one for Spain, with people believing that there was no Inquisition in other countries and that it was a Spanish invention. The fact that even the worst inquisitor tribunal wasn't worse than the average European court of its time (and more often than not the ''lesser'' bad of the two) will be ignored. Expect every inquisitor to be [[SmallReferencePools Torquemada]], even in the 18th century when it was a shell of its former self. {{Creator/Voltaire}}'s ConspiracyTheory that it was the Spanish Inquisition who controlled the Spanish Monarchy and not the other way around remains absurdly popular. All that being said, it really didn't help that Spain was the last country to abolish its Inquisition, thanks to infamous king Ferdinand VII.

*** Further Oscar appearances cemented him as someone who people are afraid of what he'll say. He accepted his Oscar for ''Milk'' saying "You commie, homo-loving, sons of guns," and awarded Best Picture for ''Film/{{Moonlight}}'' to his friend Creator/AlejandroGonzalezInarritu by saying "Who gave this son of a bitch his green card?". Although Inarritu found the joke funny, many other Mexican-Americans did not.

* UsefulNotes/McDonalds is obviously not a healthy place to eat often, though the fast food chain has attempted to offer healthy alternatives. Despite this, opponents of the chain will always regard it as the place where everyone gets obese and how there were several lawsuits from people trying to sue because the food made them fat. The lawsuits from people who became obese or burned themselves from drinking hot coffee caused the fast food chain to have [[CaptainObvious nutrition labels telling you how unhealthy their food is and how their coffee is obviously hot]] just to prevent future lawsuits from repeating history. Once again we here see the tired and refuted implication that the McDonald's Coffee incident was an example of a frivolous lawsuit. The woman received third degree burns. She was hospitalized for eight days while she underwent skin grafting, followed by two years of medical treatment and all she wanted was her medical costs covered. She suffered permanent disfigurement after the incident and was partially disabled for two years.

* FoxNews most popular and influential news personality, Series/BillOReilly has dealt with accusations of sexual harassment most of his career, (spanning two decades) and in 2016 went on record defending Roger Ailes, the CEO of Fox News who, himself, was involved in a major sexual harassment scandal that forced him to resign. Some cases Bill O'Reilly even settled out of court. However, it finally caught up with him when in early 2017 after numerous women began to come out and sue Bill O'Reilly after years of suffering in silence. It caused many huge advertisers to pull their sponsors from his show. In April 2017, after growing protest and more women coming out against him, Fox News fired its most popular news personality, despite ratings for his show being higher than ever. Fox tried to continue the show without him, but they were forced to cancel it for good a few days afterwards.

* Movie and TV actors often find themselves regretting taking part in a particular production or a particular scene, often early in their careers, which comes to define them. In some cases, they spend ''years'' continually defending their decision, claiming (in public, at least) no regrets (for example, Creator/ChloeSevigny agreeing to perform an unsimulated sex act on Vincent Gallo in ''Film/TheBrownBunny'' which she was still defending in interviews a decade later despite having found acclaim with ''TV/BigLove'' and other projects), or openly stating regret, such as Maruschka Detmers with regards to a similar scene to Sevigny's that she did in the mid-1980s for the film ''Devil in the Flesh''. Part of this has to do with the stigma associated with such scenes in the past; with today's move towards more sexual explictness in film and TV the playing field is being leveled for many performers.
