Clay Feet

President Trump built his reputation on his entrepreneurial savvy, but now it seems he got his money from his father after all.  A New York Times investigation into the Trump family's finances shows tax finagling writ large and avoidance of inheritance tax a major concern.  This is not surprising.  Rich men don't like to pay taxes any more than the rest of us.  What is notable is that the Trump fiction lasted for so long in the public eye. Were he not President, no newspaper would have dedicated a year's worth of investigative reporting to find out his fund sources.  Now, Trump has to live down his tale of personal success and his overweening self-praise for his business prowess.Trump is furious, and why shouldn't he be?  He has been shown to have clay feet.
