As you all know, Donald Trump is still refusing to release his tax returns. The presidential candidate has claimed that he is unable to release them while he in under audit by the IRS, even though that makes no sense at all. When asked why he doesn’t release his previous years returns he says that he can’t release those either because of the audit–also, makes no sense. Now, Donald Trump Jr. has come up with an even more mind-numbingly stupid excuse for his father’s refusal to be transparent with America.
In an interview with The Pittsburgh-Tribune-Review, when Little Trump was asked why his father has not released his tax returns like every other candidate has in the last forty years has he responded:
Because he’s got a 12,000-page tax return that would create … financial auditors out of every person in the country asking questions that would detract from (his father’s) main message.
What? His father’s “main message” is that he is going to “make America great again” because he is a super awesome businessman who is worth a lot of money and is going to get things done because he’s super rich and stuff. Buuuut we actually have no idea how super rich Trump actually is because The Donald refuses to show any proof of his vast riches. So, how are we supposed to trust that he is going to make America super duper “again” when he can’t even prove that he is super duper?
The other problem with Trump not releasing his tax returns is that he claims to have donated millions and millions of dollars to charity. Reports have surfaced that this is, in fact, not true at all and his own charity is a sham that takes money from people and then buys 6 foot photos of himself.
If he released his tax returns we’d have an even clearer picture of how much of a liar he is and that is the real reason he doesn’t want us to see them. Donald Trump Jr. can make all of the bullshit excuses he wants, but we all know that’s all they are: bullshit.
