    It does not matter if I can parse Trump's tax return. There are thousands of expert tax accountants who can. They can then tell the media of any highlights.

    If it was just a matter of being stupid that would be bad enough, but Trump believes he's so much more intelligent than everybody else, that anything that comes out of his mouth is absolutely profound and worthy of his god-like self. and if everybody thinks what he says is stupid it's just because stupid people, (mere mortals) aren't worthy of His Greatness.

    Why the hell would lawyers just hang out by the border just to give immigrants papers of "what to say" to immigration officials? I'm going to go ahead and guess that these immigrants are not millionaires who can afford to pay elaborate lawyer fees to get into the country. And lawyers tend not to be that altruistic of individuals. What's in it for the lawyers?

  • DARC E

    I think he’s scared to release his taxes cuz he knows he’s been cheating the system with his big short stack CPA. He is worried someone will find what is buried in the schedule C of itemized write offs or what he’s trying to claim for losses but technically he should owe but as long as he’s not looked at or audited his skeletons won’t be found. Does he realize everything always gets out. Someone always finds where the bodies are buried. Too bad the IRS can’t audit him for all those years.

    At 0:36 it sounds like he is saying "there is no law ( there isn't ), but I won't give it." And hen he bables on some more, instead of just saying no I won't release the information. Makes you think years of tax fraud, worth years of jail time. Really looking forward to see him pay for it.

    I have wondered if it was caused by the way she does contortions with her alt facts. It looks like it’s painful. Her left arm always starts flapping up and down and face tightens and contorts when she starts evading questions.
    That happens when someone asks her a question.

    Just one question: HOW would Slimy Sarah know if Congress is or isn't "smart enough" to understand Drumpf's taxes? Her only expertise is lying & obfuscating, never saw her CPA certification or even her degree in tax law so we'd be very stupid to give credence to any & everything that dribbles out her mouth & down one of her chins.

    The IRS allows you to release your taxes even though you're under audit, usually an audit is for specific years or year. All years not under audit can be released. So, he's an idiot. Plus, Sarah Sanders needs to stop lying or making such stupid statements, all it does is make her look like a stooge, doofus, too dumb to understand what she's saying.
