THE TURK, THE DONALD, AND CHRIS CHRISTIE

Ken Berwitz


“What\’s The Turk paying you to set up my father, Captain?”:  Michael Corleone, calling out Captain McKluskey, who was bought and paid for by mobster Virgil “The Turk” Sollozzo, in “The Godfather”

ON FRIDAY……..Chris Christie,who had been attacked non-stop by donald trump throughout his unsuccessful presidential campaign, and whom he had insulted right back, suddenly endorsed trump.  

Why would he do this?

ON SUNDAY……..donald trump would not disavow the support of klansman/neonazi david duke.  He claimed not to know who duke was – which would have been impossible to believe even without the fact that there are records of him talking about duke going back at least 16 years.  

Then, when caught in this beyond-ugly mess, trump first claimed that he thought he was being asked about “other groups” – which the transcript clearly shows to be a lie, and then that it was because he had “a lousy earpiece” during the interview, which has all the credibility of bashar al-assad announcing he is a lifelong Quaker.

trump has since “disavowed” duke – in a defensive way that sounds like he did so only because he had to, not because he wanted to.

ON MONDAY……..Chris Christie held a press conference, to announce the nomination of a New Jersey Supreme Court judge.  And at that time, he refused – angrily refused – to answer any questions about his endorsement of donald trump and the david duke non-disavowal.  When asked why, his answer was:

“Because I don\’t want to”.

A QUESTION……..What\’s the donald promising you to get you to look the other way, Governor?
