According to a Sunday The New York Times report, President Donald Trump paid no federal income taxes at all in 10 of the past 15 years, while paying only $750 in years 2016 and 2017.
Of course, Trump is claiming this is nothing more than fake news. Hell, no kidding? Well then, it’s a damn shame there isn’t some sort of form or document Trump could release, that would prove beyond a shadow of a doubt the NY Times story is bogus. You know, a document that would conclusively show Trump paid his fair share in taxes, just like the rest of us - but apparently, documents like that don’t even exist.
So, my-oh-my! To think this poor Trump fellow made so damn little money, that he only had a $750 tax liability? Why, that must make him just about one the lowest-paid wage earners employed over at Mar-a-Lago.
Hell, my neighbor’s 15-year-old grandson paid more taxes than that, delivering pizzas over summer. Of course, to be completely fair - my neighbor’s grandson also didn’t have scores of porn stars and hookers that needed to be paid off - so there’s that.
