- The New York Times unearthed some of President Donald Trump’s tax returns
- The documents showed that he’d lost over $1 billion in the span of a decade
- Yet Trump’s odds of winning the Presidency remain unchanged at -130
While running for President in 2016, Donald Trump boasted that his support was so strong that he could shoot someone in the middle of a crowded Fifth Avenue in New York City and it wouldn’t adversely impact his popularity.
The man may have a point.
The New York Times uncovered Trump’s tax returns from his days as a private businessman. Documents displayed that Trump utilized loopholes to avoid paying taxes. It also showed that his businesses lost over $1 billion from 1985-94.

Trump Does What He Wants
He’s lived a life of privilege. He’s never answered to anyone.
Why did anyone suspect that serving in public office was going to suddenly turn a narcissist into a person capable of feeling empathy?
I won the 2016 Election partially based on no Tax Returns while I am under audit (which I still am), and the voters didn’t care. Now the Radical Left Democrats want to again relitigate this matter. Make it a part of the 2020 Election!

Trump cheats and doesn’t pay his bills. He obstructs attempts to stop his misdeeds, and he lies like an area rug. He chases away quality advisors, replacing them with sycophants.
His public statements reveal a man who clearly has no idea what he is talking about.
Our great Patriot Farmers will be one of the biggest beneficiaries of what is happening now. Hopefully China will do us the honor of continuing to buy our great farm product, the best, but if not your Country will be making up the difference based on a very high China buy……

And he gets away with it.
He’s a product of the dumbing down of modern American culture. Reality TV stars are the new ruling class. America’s version of royalty.
At his rally tonight, Trump says the government is unable to violently attack immigrants, someone in the crowd shouted "Shoot them!"
The crowd & Trump erupt in laughter & cheers. Trump says, "Only in the panhandle can you get away with that statement."pic.twitter.com/SgQd2OH9ti

If you’ve seen the Mike Judge film Idiocracy, you know what we’re talking about. If you haven’t see the movie, don’t bother.
You’re living it in real time.
Biden Their Time?
Who’s going to stop Trump?
Congress? The Senate does his bidding.

The justice system? Attorney-General William Barr is Trump’s lap dog.
The Democratic Party? Probably not, but sadly, this dysfunctional bunch may be America’s last hope to save democracy.
The Dems are getting another beauty to join their group. Bill de Blasio of NYC, considered the worst mayor in the U.S., will supposedly be making an announcement for president today. He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man. NYC HATES HIM!

It’s essential that the Democrats find a viable candidate from their clown car full of wannabes. With over two-dozen in the running, it looks more like an open tryout for a semi-pro football team than a race for the highest office in the land.
The candidate given the best chance by the sportsbooks to win the nomination is Joe Biden. That makes sense.

Biden carries with him some of the Barack Obama credibility.
He might not be the best candidate the Democrats have, but he may be the candidate with the best chance to derail the Trump train.
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
