Responding to new story showing massive business losses, Trump can only bluster about ‘fake news’

571

In an oddly subdued Sunday evening Donald Trump press conference dedicated mostly to repeating a laundry list of alleged voting conspiracies and crimes, Trump was asked about the new New York Times story revealing that Trump paid only $750 in taxes in 2016 and 2017—largely due to ongoing, massive business failures.

His response? Total denial. “It’s fake news. It’s totally fake news.  Made up, fake.”

Trump, a relentless liar, yet again insisted that he will someday release his own taxes, the ones he still cannot release because they are “under audit,” which will someday prove the New York Times is wrong. “The story is a total fake.”

That’s it. That’s his story and he’s sticking to it, even after the Times got access to what they say is over “two decades” of Trump’s private and business tax returns, including the bottom line numbers.

There’s nothing in the law that says the orangutan baby can’t release his tax return just because he’s being audited. Just another lie out of his mouth.

In fact a spokesperson for the IRS said “Oh No, Donald absolutely can release his taxes right this very minute, he just doesn’t want to…”

Was it me, or does the picture at the top look like Donny is trying to explain why that’s twelve inches?
