    Can you imagine a US president going all the way to the Supreme Court to hide his tax returns? But his supporters will say he’s hiding them to own the libs 😂😂, there has certainly never been a more gullible group in the history of the nation. As Pelosi said “ all roads lead to the mother Russia” 😂

      It’s a shame you don’t know what the hell you are talking about he released 1,000’s of pages detailing his finance. If you could read the justices destroyed the Demercrats from being hyper partisan and over-reaching their oversight authority. They told Trump he can’t be TOTALLY exempt from all subpoenas. Then went on to explain how he can avoid this one because it’s a political action. Try to read something before you comment you are providing how uneducated you and it seems many of your idiot friend.🤣🤣😂
      Your comment is not about what the supreme Court said it’s about with CNN said.another little jackass that don’t have the sense he was born with 🤣🤣🤣🤣😆

    Wait, a president being held to standards that apply to the people he governs???? Impossible!

      A Morfus No, it suggests that he thinks it’s none of your business. And he is right. Personal tax returns are private. You have NO right to them. Every president for the past 50 years doing something is hardly a reason for Trump to do it. There are a lot of things that Trump’s doing differently. Sorry, but you don’t get to demand anything on this issue.

    • Erroneous Monk | July 9, 2020 at 7:23 PM | Reply

      Linda Scott And there it is. You just ASSUME HE CHEATED. You have no proof. You have no evidence that you want to corroborate. You have no credible theories, even. You just want t see if you can FIND SOMETHING and if you can’t you’ll just use them to try and embarrass him.
      Why aren’t you asking for anyone else’s tax returns? Oops, that’s the million dollar question, isn’t it? Because if a partisan act from Congress can force Trump to disclose his tax returns, what’s to stop them from doing it to ALL of their political enemies? And what’s to stop them at tax returns? What else can they then demand? You guys are so full of hate for people on the other side of politics that you’re willing to destroy everyone’s rights to get your way.

      @Erroneous Monk exactly. Biden is the only presidential candidate that didn’t have to debate his opponent (Bernie) one on one to win the nomination. Now he’ll be the first presidential candidate to not debate the incumbent president. Liberals are hypocrites and frauds.

    • @Erroneous Monk nope. I don’t assume he cheated, he has decades of cheating/committing fraud on:
      The Federal government (Trump’s used Federal programs to subsidize building houses. Then refused to rent to black people)
      Banks
      Contractors
      State and Federal taxes
      Investors
      All 3 wives

      In addition to sexual assault on 25 or so women.

      And money laundering.

      There was plenty of coverage of all of the above in a variety of news sources since the 1970s. It really makes me angry that he was able to skate all these years, but he would counter sue and run thr clock out on his victims. It was his MO. And he liked to brag about it so it was well known.

      All of which happened before the crimes he is being investigated for related to his campaign. Which is what the Manhattan DA had to go all the way to the Supreme Court to get his taxes for, so tjey can see how he handled the $ he gave Stormy Daniels.

      There are literally millions of people who know Trump is a criminal, a grifter and a clown. Most are from NY and NJ, but plenty in Florida.

      How anyone in this day with the internet could BELIEVE this conman was worthy of out highest office without doing any research into his past is beyond me.

      And as i am an American patriot, which means I believe in the Rule of Law, it will be up to prosecutors to investigate, indict and take to trial to find out exactly what crimes he is guilty of. The Manhattan DA is doing exactly that. The SDNY, NY Ag and others are right behind.

    • @II nosferatu II I am positive Biden is very eager to debate him. He debated some of the best debators in public life during the primaries. (I would pay good money to see Kamala Harris turn her prosecutorial ripartee on Trump. It would be like a Samurai warrior taking someone’s head off with a Japanese sword. We could take a big chip off the deficit if we did a pay to view.)

      But for now, letting Trump be Trump is Biden’s best campaign strategy. When your enemy is digging himself into a hole you don’t disturb him.

      The contrast on the debate stage between a blowhard narcissist with no morals, character or humanity and a good man who *gasp* cares about other humans will be dramatic. Looking forward to it.

      Biden’s a scrappy working class guy from PA. As opposed to a spoiled rich kid from Long Island. I would love to see Biden take Trump down if he does that creepy come up behind you move like he pulled on Clinton.

      @Erroneous Monk While there is no law requiring Trump to publicly release his tax returns, federal law of IRS Code section 6103(f) does require Trump’s (or anyone else’s) tax returns to be given to Congress if they request it. The House is requiring it, so it’s not valid?

      thy challenged the constitutionality of that law. I think.
      I know they said this was a case of Congress harassing a president, so the president should be exempt.

      @Mueller Time if Trump is re elected the Blue state i live in will secede, probably along with our neighbor states. We are sick to death of providing your red states welfare while you create Bumfuckistan run by mobsters.

      You think Putin allows his serfs to own guns? Lmfao, they will take your guns soon enough. They may let you vote, but who wins won’t be your decision.

      By the way this Blue household is a gun owning one. Your usual drivel about Dems trying to take your guns away is just more lies you are stupid enough to believe. Unlike you morons we are happy to comply with common sense gun safety in order to own our guns.

    • Linda Scott | July 9, 2020 at 5:45 PM | Reply

      @Mueller Time Lmfao you believe the turds in lie sauce they feed you??? We are looking at a Blue Trifecta.

      Republican operatives are freaked out by the coming Blue tsunami. They look at ststes that used to be solid red and they’re purple. They look at purple states turning blue. They look at Trump underwater witu EVERY GROUP EXCEPT UNEDUCATED WHITE MEN and know Trump’s chances are slipping away.

      Trump has turned off everyone except the most rabid of his crazed base, and his failure will have coattails. We will hold the House which we won 40 seats in last election. We will probably take the Senate. The challengers to the spineless Trumpublican Senators are out raising them handily (i am a tiny part of that 😀) while we have a literal army of get out the vote folks sending postcards to Democratic voters, plus calling and texting.

      Meanwhile the neverTrumper Republicans are mounting incredible ads for Biden. They know the Trumpublican party is DEAD and they’re working to get Biden elected. And those guys know a lot 0f tricks.

    • That is when Trump is assassinated and Putin takes over. I’m a 73 yo white Democrat. I worked for the DNC in Chicago for years . I know a FIX when I see one. Everyone complains about BLACK LIVES MATTER. They are the ones that are going to save this country when the White Supremesists start a Civil War. (That is what they will call it. anyways))). In reality it will be Putin’s attempt to take over. Watch VERY CLOSELY to the commercials being put out by the Lincoln Project. All of it is TRUE. The problem is that when they take over we will then find out that their platform they will feed us in the future is being taken from Trumps playbook — ALL LIES !! It worked before and they are just telling us what we want to hear and 80% of them are REALLY GOP members. Why do you think Kellyanne Conway is still in the White house and married to George.

      On the other hand opening bars and restaurants and lots of no mask parties sure are good ways to spread Covid19. Along with meat packing plants, prisons and nursing homes…

      Of course since we had zero leadership or even decent science consistently provided from the Trump administration, its no surprise to anyone with a public health background that WE LEAD THE DEVELOPED WORLD IN COVID19 WHILE THE REST OF THE WORLD IS *SAFELY AND SANELY* OPENING BACK UP.

      And yes, you should go back to college. Your ego is far bigger than your intelligence or your knowledge. Almost as big as your rudeness.
