Mon Sep 26, 2016, 11:51 PM

The thing that stuck with me the most is him bragging that he pays no taxes

He is EXACTLY that 1% douche that's raking in cash through questionable methods, and paying NO taxes on said gains while the "other 98%" pay a hefty percentage of their salary (and don't whine nearly as much as he does.)

He is the definition of income inequality.

He IS the slimeball that his blue collar voters despise.

How stupid so many Americans are.

3. Hopefully

Along with him saying that a 600+ million dollar in income isn't that much frankly.

12. Each saying how they help people as their job AND pay their taxes,

Last year I saved 30 people from burning buildings.. And I paid my taxes
I taught 120 children to read to read..and I paid my taxes
I earned my living helping hundreds of sick people after surgery...and I paid my taxes
Donald Trump says I'm not smart because I pay my taxes.
I don't think Donald Trump is being smart, I think he is just being selfish.
How many people did he help last year?

6. Yes, it went right to my core

I was like "WTF? did he really just say that?"

I'm sure Hillary won't let him forget about that line any time soon.

"So, we're all "stupid" for paying taxes?"

Man was that a massive fuckup on his part. It should lose him the election.

7. he's going to regret all his tax statements unless he's really a fool, which he might be

Most Americans are going to get resentful about that.

9. We need to tie him to his former business partner Leona Helmsley

and her infamous statement: "We don't pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes".

Bring that quote up in the context of why he's hiding his tax returns.

11. Indeed.

He's out of options here, if he doesn't release tax returns showing that he actually paid taxes, this is gonna dog him 'till election day.

13. He also implied that regular Americans who do pay taxes are not smart, because his

skill at avoiding taxes shows how smart he is.

14. Calling the average voter "stupid" who doesn't have the ability to weasel out of paying taxes

Priceless.

15. And his supporters ate it up!

 

They've already breathlessly informed me on FB that "it's not illegal to not pay taxes!" and "Wouldn't YOU do the same if you could?"

Can you imagine the ever-loving OUTRAGE from them if Hillary admitted she pays no federal taxes yet still expects to lead this country?

Of course, since they brought up the notion that "you didn't do anything wrong if you didn't do anything illegal," I told them:

"I'm so glad you believe if someone didn't do something illegal then they should be above criticism. That means, of course, all of Clinton's infinitely endless alleged criminal acts off the table as well. Since, of course, she was investigated thoroughly and no evidence of illegality was found. I'm glad that's out of the discussion; quite an irrelevant distraction if you ask me."
