Trump accidentally revealed a *lot* about his taxes 1


Donald Trump is the only modern American president to never release any of his tax returns — either while running for president or during his time in office. He's offered a series of explanations for why that is, including that he is under audit by the Internal Revenue Service and that his taxes are too complicated for anyone to understand. At his town hall with NBC in early October, though, Trump inadvertently revealed a whole lot about his tax returns to moderator Savannah Guthrie.

    If the NYT report is wrong, then all Orangeman has to do is produce his actual tax documents to discredit them and vindicate himself. That obviously ain’t happening

      @Small Dolphin Yes enlist an immediate subversive snare!
      First of all it was a grossly exaggerated joke…and your second ploy was to erroneously appropriate or deliberately misappropriate a word…I can never be sure with you guy’s
      Much of your folly comes naturally!


    • @Anthony Griffin wow, crazy much? “When and if fascism comes to America it will not be labelled ‘ Made in Germany’; It will not be marked with a swastika; It won’t even not be called Fascism; It will be called of course ‘Americanism'”….

  7. Called the bank today. Told them I’ll do them a favor and let them loan me several million. Deals done. Thanks donnie, didn’t know it was that easy.

  8. “I’m very under _levered.”_

    Does certified business genius, Donald J Trump actually not know that the term is “leveraged”? I’m starting to question the certification process they use down at business genius headquarters.

    • Listen spim, you could have at least tried to research this first.

    • Listen spim, you could have at least tried to research this first.

    • @Scott Vaughn Except that he was clearly talking about under leveraged on account of under levered not being a thing

    • @spim randsley except you’re reaching and looking for grammatical errors cuz yall literally can’t find a real reason to be mad at him other than that your puppet masters tell you to. I’m not a Trump guy cuz I feel like he might just be another false hope but if you look at the evidence he’s a lot better for our country than anyone on the left.

    It sounds like the ‘Bart Simpson’ defense:-
    “I didn’t do it, I wasn’t there, nobody saw me, you can’t prove a thing”.

  12. The illegals he has cleaning rooms in his hotels pay more in tax than he does.

  13. “under-levered?”

    • Clearly not enough levers to turn on and off all the bull$#!+ to all the different outlets he’s spouting into…so under levered! SADDDDD!!! 😒 But he’s definitely leveraged up the wazoo!! 💸

  14. Institutions??
    Deutsche Bank!
    and he sued them to withhold payment.

  15. I borrowed money as favors to financial institutions. The man is a blessed saint, Chris. Screw the people, support the banks.
