Look, I have my liberal views, but I’m willing to admit there isn’t much there there when it comes to Trump and his taxes. It’s more of a media and publicity nightmare than a significant scandal. I can’t help but think the Dems are taking a page out of the Republican playbook and turning everything into a hell worthy trespass, which is of course why we have such division in the nation.
As far as DHL…How does moving money around on credit cards make you a person of low character? I mean, to DHL’s point, they offer it, they make money on it and depending on your credit (if memory serves) as you pay a small 1-time fee, plus interest unless your offer is 0% and you repay within the introductory period. Trying to draw a parallel between DHL and DT is false equivalence.
I think you really reaching on this, at worst DHL is having money trouble, Trump lost almost $1 billion dollars and didn’t pay any taxes for (allegedly) 18 years. He didn’t lose that (almost) $1 billion to the government, he lost it in his business dealings and people are mad as hell at the system. I get that you feel it’s unfair that Mt. Trump is the focus of that frustration, however, I can’t help but think if it was Clinton or Obama had exploited the system in a similar way, that most of the people here wouldn’t be lock step denouncing it.
What is obvious to me is that Trump said he’d release his tax returns. We all know he is full of excrement when he said he was going to release his returns, but couldn’t because he is under audit. He wanted to hide it and he got caught. If he was really interested in fixing the system, he would have acted like the non-politician he claims to be and shocked the country by releasing his returns on his own, showing everyone how he has leveraged the tax system for his own gain and then vowed to fix it. But that’s not what he did. He tried to hide it, got caught and now, like every other politician, is trying to spin it.
All of this on top if the GOP declaring a winning of the debate 1.5hrs before the debate started. Now I’m no fool, I know everyone does it, but it’s just another nail in the coffin of what a joke this election cycle has become.
