    "The media is bad, very bad. They make me sad. I'm going to get them. Very mean people. Who likes sprinkles on their donuts?"

    Basically there are no revelations in it anyway other than the fact that he pays a lot less taxes percentage wise than the average hard working stiff ...

    It was a shiny thing he hoped would distract from the catastrophe of the Ryan/TrumpCare rollout, the mudslide that multiple congressional investigations have the potential to become and the fear that his Russia connections may become unraveled by either subpoenaed past or current employees, or by Russian, i.e. Putin controlled, media sources.

      The clumsy way they have thrown tarnish onto this newest shiny thing by first confirming it was real then saying there was nothing to see here is a clear indication of it's actual source. If it came from a non-Trump source there would probably be more to follow. If they wanted it quashed they could have just said it was a fake. As it is, it will fail as a distraction on all points and we will either be talking about Congressional subpoenas over his wiretapping claims or a Russian-sourced dump of his family's financial connections to China by the end of the day.

    Maddow was a total waste of time. Maddow was trolled by Trump and the reporter. All someone had to do was look at the return and realize nothing was there. Trump paid $38 million in taxes.

    Trump declared $100 million in losses. The 1995 income tax return showed a net loss of $916 million. Between the tax return released from 95 and now 05, Trump had a total net loss of $1 billion. This is how this should be argued.

    Trump should put money where his mouth is and release every tax return with every page. You say nothing there. Prove it.

    My question is what kind of a shitty business person only makes 150 million (plus a 100 million writeoff) off of 2.7 billion that he claimed to be worth in 2005 ???

    I get "creative" with my taxes too so I know that his declaration is total bullshit ...
     
    1. xxxaddict76
      Just from the 95 and 05 tax returns, it looks like Trump is losing more than he takes in. The rest of the returns will show the same pattern of losses.

    Rachel Maddow finds grenade, pulls pin, tosses it, (the pin, not the grenade), then runs around saying "Hey everyone! Look what I found. Donald Trump pays his taxes." Wait! What? BOOM!

    1. Trump 25%
    2. Sanders 13%
    3. Clinton 18%?
    Who doesn't pay their fair share?
     
    1. RandyKnight
      Obama 19%

      @RandyKnight. Yeah 19% because President Obama made $400 thousand in salary. SMH.

    First reason

    Bernie is a Jew.

    Second reason.

    Trump making $150 million will pay at a higher tax rate than Sanders making $200 thousand or Clinton making whatever she made.

    Last reason.

    New York has a higher tax rate than Vermont.

      There is a different between States and and Federal taxes. Trump still paid more in percentage then most democratics.
      You've been TRUMPED

      @pussy in boots. No. I understand there is a difference between State and Federal taxes. Federal taxes will be higher for someone making $150 million, versus President Obama making $400 thousand, versus Senator Sanders making $200 thousand. If you do not understand that, I do not know what to tell you, you dumb cunt.

    Trump leaks his own taxes to put the MSM in a tizzy?

    Is that giving him too much credit?

    Actually I believe it is true that Trump leaked this tax return himself.

    But to Rachel Maddow and David Cay Johnston's credit one of the very first things they discussed was the possibility that Trump leaked this particular return himself.

    However, it was probably a mistake because it highlights the fact that if Trump is successful in his tax reforms he would end up paying only 5% taxes on his income.

      An excellent question.
      Perhaps a congressional investigation is called for.
      Let's study the issue for a few weeks, ask lots of questions with no answers and generally spin about like ADHD infused rabbits.

    Trump 25%.. Sanders 13%.. Clinton 18%?...FEDERAL RATES.

    Federal rates are set by amount of income dipshit. $150 million will be taxed at a higher rate than $10 million, or $200 thousand.

    Beyond that I was giving the dumb cunt examples.

    Trump paid more than Obama, percentage-wise.

    And more than Tim Kaine (remember him? Hillary's crazy-clown running mate?)

    And more, in fact, than the employer of Rachel Madcow.

    Wow, Madcow. What's your next big scoop?

    so creative you had 6 months of house arrest...

    You seem to know little about real estate....

    the 100 million write off is probably deprecation on buildings he owns which means he sheltered 50 to 75 million in income not showing as part of the 150 million...which would make the effective income around 225 million....

    the 2.5 billion worth is from appreciation from real estate he has with a cost basis on of around 1/2 a billion....

    well located real estate has always been the way to grow wealth without annual taxes....
    couple that with property that pays for itself and throws off tax free income is the best of all worlds....

    how many threads have you started on Trump?

    Shooter has a prediction.
    As the unsupporters gasp and glare and spin about Trump's tax return they will expose more of their ignorance, or at least bias towards Trump, and will in the end discover that this bauble does nothing for their credibility.

    On to the next scandal!

    The only reason anybody wants to see the tax forms is to go over it with a fine tooth comb with a gaggle of tax law attorney's hoping for the "gotcha" moment.
    If I was Trump, I wouldn't produce them.

    It's pretty much like the "birther" thing Trump had when Obama became president. That didn't help a fucking thing and neither does this. It's just more divisive bullshit and it comes from both sides.

    On the other hand, maybe some of you are right Trump did it himself to get the conversation off the health plan. After all, the wiretapping tweets got them out of the Russian connection....

    Fuck me... I need a program.

    Did Trump personally leak his 2005 tax return? A Google search provided me with speculation but no proof.
     
    1. shootersa
      Proof?
      Now you want PROOF?
      You jest.
      The unsupporters have been making wild accusations about Trump since he announced his candidacy, and almost never with proof of any kind. Just speculation and opinions of "unnamed sources". But, no proof.
      The hell you think this is, a civilized discussion?
      It's not.
      This is butt hurt Trump unsupporters expressing their outrage that their man (woman) lost to a pompous gas bag like Trump.
      Proof.
      You must be a deplorable. Or at least a Red Neck, or uneducated, or a blue collar worker.

      Since they screamed bloody murder over Trump's accusation that Obama ordered a wire tap of Trump Tower, I figured that they must have proof that he leaked his own tax return.
