And an outraged Sarah Silverman says the money should go for education.
The very thought of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie – a man with all the charm and temperament of Bluto – being commander-in-chief was luckily destroyed.
His pathetic and nonexistent presidential run proved that America preferred an even bigger louder and more unstable narcissistic a-hole in Donald Trump.
But since he can’t keep being governor of New Jersey forever – the blob of buffoonery has to kiss up to Trump in the hopes that it gets him an unelectable cabinet-level position.
Well that cynical effort appears to be playing out quite beautifully.
The sketchy relationship between Christie and Trump took on a new chapter after a New York Times report showed that Trump’s $30 million casino tax debt – something New Jersey officials fought endlessly to collect – was suddenly reduced by a massive amount after Christie took office in 2010.
New Jersey agreed to reduce Trump’s tax debt via settlement to $5 million after Christie took office.
According to Christie spokesman Brian Murray, Christie had not been ‘aware of the tax dispute’ and ‘could not comment on the terms of the settlement’.
Trump’s crappy businessman woes start and end with his casinos.
As a casino operator in Atlantic City Trump’s casino took a Muhammad Ali-like hit – eventually leading to $30 million in tax debt to New Jersey.
Amazingly enough that large amount was reduced to $5 million in 2011.
