The NYT has Trump's tax returns, but they've got it paywalled https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/09/27/us/donald-trump-taxes.html  Apparently he's only paid $750 in taxes in the past 10 years.

The only way I know how to get around this paywall (other than paying) is to look at the source view-source:https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/09/27/us/donald-trump-taxes.html  Which is very annoying.

OH, never mind someone archived it https://archive.is/e0Oju

No wonder he never wanted anyone to see it. Not only does it look dodgy but almost everyone pays more tax per fortnight than he has in 10 years.

So the article says he paid $750 the year he got elected, and then $750 again his first year in office, and out of the 15 years leading up to that, 10 of those years he paid $0 in taxes. It's still a pretty bleak picture, but to be fair to The Great Pumpkin, he has paid more than $750, it just seems like he's either insanely underpaying while also being the super-great patriot that he is, or lying about how great of a businessman he is. Or, you know, both.

I had to look at that number more than once.  Not $750 million.  $750 dollars.  Enough money to buy the US government a playstation and an xbox.

I was resistant for a long time, yet another thing I have to sign up for. But I was tired of deleting cookies and such. Pocket works great. You tend to lose some of the images in an article, but the text comes right through. I'm a fan.

I shouldn't laugh,  but it seems somehow appropriate.  I guess this is the harbinger of the fate that lies ahead for all of Trump's enablers....

And somehow this welfare/ wellness check on a mental guy, with multiple guns, didnt end up with police storming in and shooting him up.


2ndly or 2ndA
He mustve owned them guns legally.
So when does a sane person become insane and when do triggers happen to take away his guns?

Okay Trump has this all cleared up.

2.  Those documents were illegally given to the New York Times.

Nevermind the fact that these two explanations contradict each other.

The more important question to be asked, after learning he owes $421,000,000.

The question is,  who does he owe that money to?   

Like all good detectives you should always "follow the money",  it's a pity Mueller didn't remember that.

Well that's the 421 million dollar question.

Not sure but I think they got his business tax returns but not his personal.  Or maybe it's the other way around.

They also said they're going to release more information eventually.  So we might find out.

The Trump campaign has tried so hard to convince everyone that "Sleepy Joe"  belongs in a nursing home,  that it seems to me that all Joe has to do is stay awake for the whole debate and watch Trump go into melt-down. When Joe is alert and makes coherent arguments.

That's the problem with lowering expectations.

Well there's the fact that Biden is clearly on PEDs making him seem clear of mind and also suffering from debilitating Alzheimer's so he can't string a sentence together. So whether he stays awake, falls asleep, seems sharp as a tack, or stumbles over his words, he is playing directly into Trump's very normal sized hands.
