“A stunning New York Times exposé of the President’s tax returns Sunday revealed a pitifully inept businessman and a serial tax avoider crushed by massive debts that could expose him to conflicts of interest given his position as President and power to help undisclosed lenders.
In 2016 and 2017 each, Trump paid just $750 in federal income taxes — far less than many Americans who are working hard amid a deep recession to stay afloat. Trump took huge deductions — including $70,000 to take care of his hair.”
The New York Times expose of Trump’s tax returns exposed him as the worst businessman in the history of capitalism, a fake billionaire who owes over a billion in loans, and a vain fat baboon who spends tens of thousands in hairstyling costs.
You’d think it would be relatively inexpensive to maintain Trump’s unique hairstyle: $100 a day for a Russian hooker to rain golden showers on his wispy hair. Five bucks for a comb to perfect his combover from hell. Twenty bucks for a blow dryer to lend his hairdo that defies physics and common-sense look.
The con-in-chief wrote off $70,000 in hairstyling for The Apprentice, arguably the mother of all questionable tax write-offs. I remember last year when Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spent $250 for a haircut and color and was mercilessly ridiculed by outraged members of the Republican party.
These shocking revelations won’t do anything to persuade Trump’s base that he is a vain con man who doesn’t deserve their loyalty. Trump could kidnap a hairstylist in the middle of 5th Avenue in broad daylight and force him to give him a haircut and he wouldn’t lose any supporters. If Trump made an appeal on Twitter for donations to pay for his hairstylist, he would raise a million dollars in minutes.
I would love to light a match to Trump’s hairdo and watch in delight as the hairspray saturated coiffure erupted in a conflagration. Just a fantasy, I’m not encouraging anyone to punish Trump for being such a tax cheat.
