They’re just waking up, I know just what they’ll do. Their mouths will hang open a minute or two, then the boobs down in Trumpville will all cry boo-hoo.

Below is just a small sampling of Twitter reactions from taxpayers who expected a bigger refund following the passage of the GOP tax scam at the end of 2017.

If this is being repeated across the country (and millions are yet to file), the backlash could be, well, extreme.

It’s one thing to serve the NCAA champs cold berders and fries or to, I don’t know, insist on remaining president even though you’re the goddamn stupidest sentient being in the universe, but if people don’t get the refunds they’re expecting, look out:

And here’s a bit of explanation:

Forbes’ explainer notwithstanding, I’m pretty sure people will want their usual tax refund a lot more than they’ll want mealy-mouthed answers.

Looks like another PR nightmare for the increasingly out-of-touch Grand Old Party.
