I’m not sure how conservatives can sink any lower than nominating Donald Trump as their candidate for president, but they are sure going to try. In the latest breaking news about how horrible Donald Trump is and how unfit he is to be president, it has been revealed that there is substantial evidence that the Republican candidate has not paid into the Federal Tax system in nearly two decades. The Trump Campaign hasn’t confirmed nor denied the latest findings, however, they have been quick to call the act of publishing this nugget of information illegal.
Of course, that was after Trump said at the first Presidential Debate that it made him “smart” for not paying taxes, basically confirming the speculation.
Have no fear, though. Trump’s fanboys Rudy Giuliani and Chris Christie are here to tell us how Trump completely screwing us all is actually a good indicator of how great a president he will be. No really, they applauded Trump’s actions as being “genius” and how this is “a very, very good story for Trump.”
Rudy Giuliani told ABC’s “This Week”:
He’s a genius – absolute genius. This was a perfectly legal application of the tax code, and he would’ve been a fool not to take advantage of it.”
It shows you what a genius he is – how smart he is, how intelligent he is, how strategic he is. I want that working for me. I want to see if he can produce these kinds of results for us.”
How can a man who was mayor of New York City applaud a wealthy man who skipped out on providing the country the revenue required from him for earning an income in this country. Impoverished people who can’t afford taxes should be getting the pass from paying, not some dude who is living in multiple gold covered homes.
Donald Trump has ZERO interest in producing those “kinds of results for us.” If he had, he would have, you know, paid into the system that actually makes America stronger. Rather than do that, he skipped out on paying ANY of his share. Complaining about what a “mess” our country is in while not financially contributing anything to it because you are a greedy bastard doesn’t bode well in the department of public service.
Giuliani, of all people, should know this.
Chris Christie appeared on “Fox News Sunday” to tell us how this is such a great story for Donald Trump. He actually said:
What it shows is what an absolute mess the federal tax code is, and that’s why Donald Trump is the person best positioned to fix it. There’s no one who’s showed more genius in their way to move around the tax code and to rightfully use the laws to do that.”
And, when asked if Donald Trump should apologize for not paying his taxes, Christie replied:
Oh, for gosh sakes, no apologies for complying with the law, and taking a bow for the fact that he has said well before this story came out that we should change the tax laws.”
Umm, Trump isn’t releasing his tax returns because they will likely show he hasn’t paid into the system for nearly two decades. Having a will to fix the tax code means you don’t exploit every loophole possible to get out of paying your fair share of taxes while raking in billions, but rather, pay your taxes and advocate for the change. Of course, this is Trump we are talking about here, so any expectation of morality or decency is lost.
The same can be said for those that will whitewash this latest, and all future, pieces of evidence pointing to the fact that Trump is a greedy, money hoarder who does absolutely nothing unless it quenches his own addiction for gluttony.
If you can’t pay taxes on the obscene amount of money you made in America, you shouldn’t even be considered as the person who should run it.
