I feel compelled to borrow the famous line from the 2012 Republican presidential primary from then-Texas Gov. Rick Perry who famously suffered the brain freeze while trying to name the three agencies he would terminate were he elected president.
It now applies to something that 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump said about a foundation run by Bill and Hillary Clinton. He called the Clinton Foundation the “most corrupt enterprise in political history.”
Oh, brother. Now this comes forward.
The Trump Foundation has been shut down because of a “shocking pattern of illegality.”
The Trump outfit was collecting money to service Donald Trump’s myriad “business and political interests.”
I now shall ask: Does this make the Trump Foundation the most corrupt enterprise in political history?
Oh, probably not the “most corrupt.” It does seem to be pretty damn corrupt nonetheless. It’s corrupt enough for the New York attorney general, Barbara Underwood, to order it shut down . . . immediately!
Let’s wait for the president to respond to this latest embarrassment. It ought to be a doozy.
