Talk about trying to make chicken salad out of chicken you-know-what.

Losers Pay Taxes

Chefs Chris and Rudy Try to Whip Up Some Chicken Salad—Berry Craig

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie claimsThe New York Times article that suggests Donald Trump may not have paid any federal income tax for up to 18 years “was actually a very, very good story for" his presidential candidate.

Christie, the Trump surrogate who faces possible impeachment or indictment over his role in the Bridgegate scandal, defended Trump today on "Fox News Sunday."

Christie added that Trump did nothing illegal. (The story doesn't claim he did.)

The Garden State governor also said that the federal tax code is an “absolute mess” and that “there’s no one better [than Trump] to fix it.”

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, another Trump apologist, called The Donald “a genius” for working the tax code to his advantage. Giuliani, customarily bug-eyed and almost hyperventilating, appeared on ABC’s “This Week.”

Think Trump, whose tax “reform” plan lavishes even more tax breaks on plutocrats, really aims to sew up tax loopholes available only to rich people like him?

Great. I'm a Kentuckian, but see me about some prime oceanfront property I own in Kansas. I’ll sell it to you, prairie dirt cheap.

Anyway, Trump says he’s “smart” to avoid paying taxes. He also says he’s smart to make a lot of stuff in China and other cheap-labor countries and sell it stateside for a handsome profit.

Think Trump will really put the kibosh on job-killing trade deals when outsourcing fattens his wallet?

Cool. I also have a John Calipari autographed basketball I signed myself. (Calipari is the University of Kentucky men's basketball coach for those of you who live beyond the Big Blue Nation's borders.) I’ll show my art of the deal on that one, too.
