Trump, in the key of f-u.

Weird how this morning we were talking about tax cheats, and this afternoon we learn that Possum Hollar elected the MOTHER OF ALL TAX CHEATS!

I love serendipity.

UPDATE Axios email thingie says…

Details from the story:

  • “All told, The Times documented 295 distinct streams of revenue Fred Trump created over five decades to channel wealth to his son.”
  • “When Fred Trump died in June 1999 at the age of 93, the vast bulk of his empire was nowhere to be found in his estate — testament to the success of the tax strategies devised by the Trumps in the early 1990s.”
  • The New York Times found that Trump received the equivalent of $413 million after questionable tax dealings with this father’s real estate empire during the 1990s.
  • Helped by a variety of tax dodges, the Trumps paid $52.2 million, or about 5%.
  • The IRS reportedly provided little pushback against the Trumps’ tactics.
  • Trump reportedly tried to change his father’s will when he was sick to benefit himself.
  • His father was “alarmed and angered, feared could result in his empire’s being used to bail out his son’s failing businesses.”

Among the juiciest lines:

  • “By age 3, [Donald Trump] was earning $200,000 a year in today’s dollars from his father’s empire. He was a millionaire by age 8. In his 40s and 50s, he was receiving more than $5 million a year.”
  • Fred Trump illegally purchased $3.5 million in casino chips at his son’s casino in 1990, ultimately paying a $65,000 fine.

    He has been a lying crook all his life and he is a perfect fit for the mob, both here in the states and the Russian mob. He has no morals and only wants more and more money. So he is a criminal . Hugs

    When you’re given money and never have to earn it, you never learn how to manage it. When you have unlimited supplies of cash, you never learn how to respect it. And if you have unlimited cash and don’t know how to manage that cash, you waste it or you lose it.

    Trump has wasted, mismanaged, and lost billions of dollars personally, and now he’s working on that same policy for the country.
