Jason Chaffetz

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) called on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to release his tax returns and medical records this morning.

I appreciate that and I certainly agree that Trump should release his records to the public just as Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has done, but Chaffetz was a little more colorful than I would prefer.

“If you're going to run and try to become the president of the United States, you're going to have to open up your kimono and show everything, your tax returns, your medical records,” the Utah lawmaker said to CNN.

Nope

This feels like a line Chaffetz has used before but in entirely different context.

  • Oh, open kimono. That’s a stick phrase in business speak for openness and honesty.

  • Badgerite

    Just the tax returns, please. Just the tax returns.

  • Draxiar

    GAH! The image…it burns!

  • Aynwrong

    Why is it the more conservative the politician is the freakier it is when they bring up sex? Why?

  • Nefercat

    Uh, kimono? Those are some distressingly detailed fantasies Chaffetz chose to share with well, everyone.

  • muselet

    Good for Jason Chaffetz (and I never thought I’d type those words without sarcasm).

    This feels like a line Chaffetz has used before but in entirely different context.

    Thanks for the mental image, Ashby. *shudder*
