Tom Jefferson had kids by his slave Sally Hemmings.
Andrew Johnson was a falling-down alcoholic.
Grover Cleveland had an illegimate child.
Franklin D. Roosevelt had Lucy Mercer and Missy LeHand.
Harry Truman ran a clothing store until corrupt Boss Pendergast made him a senator.
Dwight Eisenhower had Kay Summersby.
John F. Kennedy had affairs with Marilyn Monroe and many others.
Richard Nixon had Watergate.
Bill Clinton had Monica and many, many others.
Ronald Reagan had Alzheimers.
