If you are old enough to remember the game ‘Truth or Dare?,’ you remember these rules:

Player 1 starts the game by asking another to choose “Truth or Dare?”

If Player 2 chooses “truth,” then Player 1 asks a question, usually an embarrassing one, which Player 2 must answer truthfully.

If Player 2 instead chooses “dare,” then Player 1 dares them to do something – often embarrassing or dangerous – which they must do and which can entail telling an embarrassing story or acting out in some humiliating manner.

If Player 2 does not like the dare, they can request a new one to be asked.

After answering the question or performing the dare, Player 2 asks “Truth or Dare?” to another player, and the game continues. On occasion, someone can choose “double dare,” which means that they and the person who dares them can have an action suggested for them to perform. A player cannot dare another to choose truth. Likewise, you cannot be dared to “tell” something.

But let’s just clear our minds of all these rules, and put it more simply: there are usually two players, and the one with the most to lose, usually loses, unless they are really good at the game. How does this game relate to the 2016 U.S. presidential election? Simple: Republican nominee for president, Donald J. Trump, has said his opponent and the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, is crooked and has a lot of damaging secrets hiding in her financial dealings, especially when it comes to her involvement with the Clinton Foundation, while she was Secretary of State.

Madonna has been always fond of saying ‘truth or dare?,’ and while Hillary Clinton hasn’t used those exact words, she has made it clear that until Donald Trump releases his tax returns, as has she, the only truth that really matters will be whether or not he dares to do it, too.
