Well the bernie bros also threatened to burn down Milwaukee during the DNC if Bernie got screwed out of the nomination again....and he got screwed out of the nomination again and there were not even any protests. These cucks need the blacks and antifa as those people seem to be the only ones with any balls to actually take to the streets. Bernie socialists have a problem of too much soy and weed to do anything tangible.

3 days after the Milwaukee convention, Kenosha [40 mins away] erupted in violence and firebombing. Seems antifa shock troops were in town for the convention, awaiting orders that didnt come.

Libs trying to make hay out of this NY Slimes “blockbuster“ story about T’s taxes. They tried this in 2016 and it flopped then as it will now.

A couple observations.

Trump hires expert tax accountants and attorneys and tasks them with calculating and paying his legal tax requirement, no more no less - as all rich guys do. Is there anyone alive who tells their accountants “figure out how I can pay more than legally required!”?

The media is ignorant about how taxes work. Or they pretend to be ignorant. Or they suffer from confirmation bias “we got Blumpf this time!” I used to own a condo and rent it out. I’d make a nice little profit every month, but paid zero taxes on it. When I’d do my taxes (well when H&R Block did them for me), I’d deduct depreciation, and have zero profits for tax purposes, and pay no taxes. I suspect this is part of why T pays little taxes in some years, also loss carry forwards.

Trump didn’t write these tax laws, but he sure as shit follows them. Joe Biden first became a senator in 1972. Has Joe Biden ever spoken out against depreciation or loss carry forward, or try to change the laws? I suspect Biden voted for those things because they make such obvious sense, notwithstanding what the demagogues are going to say about it now.

This is another Deep State maneuver. Tax records are private information that is illegal for federal employees to disclose. Once again we have the federal bureaucracy meddling in elections.


Update, Scott Adams gets it.

Watch how many of your social media friends and cohorts talk out of both sides of their mouth regarding Trump's taxes, especially the ones that freelance, own their own business, or are sole proprietors, especially all those hot hard 8 'accountants' with webcams.

If you want to talk about proper conduct, ask them if they've ever bought a car or boat off CraigsList and registered it as $1000 or 'gift'. Lot of $1200 21-ft Sea Hunts and $1500 Acuras floating around out there in America...

Ok, prediction on a tangent here; Biden's inevitable statement in a few minutes will be one of so much outrage towards Trump and this bombshell tax scandal that the debates are hereby CANCELLED. We shall see...

Edit:

I'm serious...

Another thing: Leftists constantly complain about super rich people hoarding their money into passive income investment accounts. This article states – and tries to score points on Trump for– that he made $420m cash from the Apprentice and various other entertainment gigs, and, horror, reinvested it back into businesses to help them grow. This is precisely what the main complaint of the leftists against the super rich has been for the last decade or so. He could have set that $420m into an investment account and took home $25m+/ year after taxes in effortless income. What Trump did is what we want the super rich to be doing with their liquid wealth.
