As you may already know, an ANONYMOUS sender mailed a copy of Donald's 2005 tax returns... well, just 2 pages of it.. to a reporter.

It just keeps getting better and better with all of the BS he pulls off. So entertaining, yet despicable that our president continuously uses his ruthless and outlandish tactics in attempt to deflect attention on issues unfavorable to him, while trying to con the public into believing he is the greatest man that every walked the earth.

I say 'John Miller' leaked it!

Here is what went down as I see it:

The Dems are all over Trump's Russian connection. Donald can't figure out for the life of him how they found out about the meetings. He says to his peeps ..'They had to have been tapping my building! There is no other way they would have known... because it did happen god damnit! . Im putting out a tweet and claiming Obama Wiretapped my ass. This should deflect some attention back on them'.

Then his kids say, 'You know what, this tax return shit isn't going away either Daddy'. Then Donald says ' Don't worry, Ill handle it. Lets get just two pages of my returns from the only year I paid real taxes and made a lot of money. Ill make sure the media sees it ANONYMOUSLY and it will make me look like a rock star, a brilliant business man who must be so smart because he made a lot of money.... but do not, I said DO NOT make any other returns public or I will be fried'.

The kids say, 'Daddy you are soooo smart! We will even send out some tweets saying that from this tweet, the public should know how brilliant a business many you are even though it is Fake News in the first place. Brilliant Daddy! BTW, we have more projects going up in Internationally but we will make sure the public doesn't think that you will benefit from it Daddy!'

Cmon Man!

No question he leaked it himself. Petty, vindictive, possibly insane, and all the power of US military and intelligence services available to him? Nobody close enough to him to have access to it would dare.

Also, the 1040 is nearly meaningless without the supporting documentation. The questions are, with what foreign nationals does he do business and in which countries, what companies does he own or invest in that have significant government oversight, contracts, or questionable principals (executives, not ethos, though that could be important as well), are his previous disclosures and claims backed up by his tax returns, things like that.

Really disappointed in both the media and the Republicans for not insisting on full disclosure. People forget in so many ways the guy volunteered to run. Serving as President comes at a high price, and I just don't get why those who could don't make him pay it.

He's going to spend more in a year on bs travel between the NYC nonsense and running away every weekend to Palm Beach (let alone what the kids cost), than the budget of all those agencies EB listed combined. And no, that's not an exaggeration. My tax dollars are flying his ass around instead of paying for things I think govt should be doing and that benefit hundreds of millions of people here and abroad.


Don't even get me started on him doubling the club dues and socializing with the richie riches who pay him PERSONALLY for access. Whoring out the Presidency...

I agree it is most likely that he leaked his own 'tax return'. He must have picked a year where he paid the most taxes. Too coincidental that only two pages released, and 38 million paid. He played Madcow like a fiddle.
As far as Republicans and the media "insisting" on full disclosure, what do you mean by "insisting'? The media and the Republicans do not make the rules, the American people do, and they voted him in despite knowing full well he had not disclosed his tax information.
As far as the insane travel costs, you are correct. But any president incurs ridiculous costs, even when staying in DC. Last April I was in DC and was going to walk a few blocks to a restaurant. When I got to the first corner I was not allowed to cross the street. I was told Obama was going to a restaurant across town from the White House and his motorcade was going to be driving by. There were 'regular' cops lining the streets preventing people from crossing. Then a motorcycle group sped by, I think 8 motorcycles. Followed by a bunch of black sedans. Followed by a jeepish limo. Followed by more motorcycles. Followed by an ambulance. Followed by more black sedans. I asked the cop if I could assume that it was Obama in the limo. His answer was 1/3 chance, as this exact caravan was happening over 3 different routes, and he is not told if this one is the real presidential motorcade or one of the two false ones. I can only guess it costs well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars for him to go to dinner.

I've never seen a decoy motorcade in NY. They have multiple identical vehicles so you don't know which one to hit, but not multiple motorcades. Perhaps it is different in DC, but I'd imagine the officer was feeding you alternative facts.
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way

As Ive said many times , Trump is a sophisticated con artist. He knows how to manipulate and deceive. He is very good... maybe one of the best at fabricating, bullying, and manipulating. Much of his wealth has come from this and inheritance. It is what it is. Remember he said 'Im like, a really smart guy'. Who says that? lol He is better off having his alias PR folks say it for him... oh yea, he does. John Miller!

I don't expect the President to be unusually frugal but securing BOTH Trump Tower And Mar-a-Lago doesn't demonstrate much concern over how he spends tax dollars. Substituting at least one of those for a less expensive secure site would show some concern for reasonable fiscal responsibility.

But no one expects that!

Remember... to catch the thief, you have to think like the thief. This is why Donald is always a step ahead. He is a con and knows how to get around the system and get his way. Master bully and manipulator. Look how well he kept his exes from talking bad about him.

TLDR: Trump paid $38M in taxes in 2005, when all the lefties thought he hadn't paid any taxes.

Good thread.
