Trump is running again ‘and these 2 idiots are going to prison’

Todd and Julie Chrisley, the couple at the center of the USA Network original series “Chrisley Knows Best,” were sentenced to a combined total of 19 years in federal prison Monday after being convicted of tax fraud and various versions of of conspiracy to commit fraud. And on Tuesday morning, the hosts of “The View” were a bit stunned that another former reality star hasn’t also been indicted.

Between the two, Todd was sentenced to 12 years in prison, while Julie received seven years. The couple’s “15-year fraud spree” included using fake paperwork to get $30 million in bank loans, defaulting on more than $20 million in debt and hiding money they earned from their program from the IRS.

Both Chrisleys were charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States, and tax fraud. Julie Chrisley was also charged with wire fraud and obstruction of justice. And while the women on “The View” think the sentences were fairly earned, they also couldn’t help but wonder why the twice-indicted former president hasn’t faced a similar fate.

“[Trump] He has committed very similar crimes. It’s unbelievable to me,” Joy Behar said. “He is behind this insurrection, he does not pay his taxes, he steals documents and takes them to Mar-a-Lago: nuclear codes! He’s free, he’s running for president, and these two idiots are going to jail! What’s that? I do not understand that!”

Host Sunny Hostin also pointed out that more than one Trump was still making money from other companies while working at the White House, angering his children.

“How much did Ivanka and Jared earn while they worked there?” Hostin questioned. “A couple billion dollars?”

Behar added that Trump may even have been a factor in the Chrisleys’ schemes, because “when they see the president get away with it, they think they can too!” But moderator Whoopi Goldberg disagreed with that part. It’s hard for her to believe that anyone would actually believe he could get away with tax crimes.

“Look at all the people who have gone to jail for tax evasion,” he said. “It’s one of the things that you never really think ‘Well, I’m not going to do that, because I’m going to get away with it!’ No one gets away with tax evasion except the people who will remain anonymous.”
