Chelsea Handler Offers to Pay 50 Cent's Taxes if He Drops Trump Support
Anti-Trump actor makes bizarre offer to rapper
Leftist comedian and actress Chelsea Handler responded to rapper 50 Cent's recent support for President Donald Trump over Joe Biden's 62% tax rate, saying she would pay it for him if he dropped support for the president.
The rapper endorsed Trump for re-election and is calling on America to "vote for Trump" over the former vice president's proposed tax hikes.
"WHAT THE F---! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT," he wrote in the caption.
"F--- NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f---ing mind."
50 cent doubled down the next day, writing on Twitter:
"Yeah, i don’t want to be 20cent. 62% is a very, very,bad idea. i don’t like it !"
Biden's tax proposals could see those earning more than $400,000 a year hit with rates of 62.6 percent for those who live in California and 62 percent for New York City residents.
Handler, who previously dated Jackson 10 years ago, responded to his support for the President.
"You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend," said the 45-year-old comedian.

"Oh my God this is effecting [sic.] my love life now," 50 Cent responded.
"@chelseahandler I love ya Gator, don’t let Trump and Joe Biden come between us girl."
Handler has offered to pay the rapper's taxes should he reconsider his support for the president.
"Hey f--ker! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses," wrote the frequent Trump critic on Wednesday.
"Happily! Black lives matter. That’s you, f--ker! Remember?"

Last week, the Trump campaign revealed it was working with iconic rapper Ice Cube to build out its Platinum Plan to empower African-Americans economically.
Ice Cube, whose legal name is O’Shea Jackson Jr., gave permission to reveal he has been working with Trump on the groundbreaking platform for black Americans.
