A Manhattan judge ruled on Friday that Donald Trump is on the hook for $355 million in fines after he inflated the net worth of his assets in his business dealings. The ruling by judge Arthur Engoron also bans the 45th President from doing business in New York for three years. Some observers are calling the judgement severe, but columnist Mike Kelly says the verdict is actually what Trump deserves. Kelly appeared on 710 WOR’s Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning program to outline why he feels the Trump finally got a dose of his own medicine.

“I think what it exposes… is this attitude by the Trump organization… that they can cheat and chisel and do whatever they want,” Kelly told Berman and Larry Mendte, sitting in for Riedel. “And I saw this right here in New Jersey. When you go down to Atlantic City, and you talk to the electricians and the plumbers and some of the other contractors who built his casinos, that they singed a contract for whatever the work was supposed to be billed for, and then Trump would hit them with ‘Listen, I’m only going to pay you sixty cents on the dollar’… and this is what Trump does over and over and over again… and he considers it something he has the right to do, and I think the judge finally called hm on it.”

Kelly also wrote a recent column focusing on politics across the Hudson, as he analyzed Tom Suozzi’s return to Congress. “I think the next Presidential election is going to be decided in suburban communities… where, I believe, people are not so much red or blue, but I would call them purple. They jump back and forth, depending on the issue that might be before them, and I think these kinds of districts are where you find what you call a lot of swing voters… and, I think, you might even see that’s where the battle for the control of the House of Representatives will take place.”
