The last time Trump paid taxes… Justin Bieber was born

The New York Times came out with a blockbuster story showing that Donald Trump may not have paid taxes for 18 years, following a nearly one billion dollar loss Trump declared on his taxes in 1995.

That means the last year Donald Trump may have paid taxes was 1994.

To give you a sense of just how long ago 1994 was, let’s take a walk down memory lane:

    This is a DISTURBING CONNECTION, and may be a good reason to exempt Trump from ever having to pay taxes again.

    Humanity will thank us, amirite?

    This discussion kind of pisses me off. Trump supporters make the point that he is doing nothing illegal and being a good businessman by not paying taxes. That’s our system, LOUSY as it is to advantage the rich over the poor. But for Trump not to pay taxes for all those years, HE HAD TO LOOSE 900 MILLION DOLLARS. People need to make the point that to not pay those taxes, HE HAD TO FAIL AT HIS BUSINESS, AND NOT JUST FAIL, BUT TO SCREW UP COLOSSALLY. The argument should be: “Elect Trump and let him screw up America financially and then game the system so there are no taxes!!” Not paying those taxes is repugnant but for a businessman who claims to be brilliant, who screws over everybody, it is to be expected. But loosing 900 million doesn’t make him just a businessman, it makes him a LOOSER with a capitol L, an incompetent businessman. The tax dodge is just him cashing in on his FAILURE. THAT IS THE REAL STORY HERE.

    There is zero evidence that Donald Trump has paid any U.S. income tax since 1977.

    In 1977 Laverne and Shirley, Happy Days, Three’s Company, and All in the Family were big hits on TV. Children’s cable TV channel Pinwheel, the predecessor to Nickelodeon, started broadcasting. President Jimmy Carter was sworn into office. Commodore introduced their first computer (the PET), Apple incorporated, and Atari introduced their Video Computer System (the Atari 2600). The network that became the Internet was born, connecting a whopping three computers, but the Web didn’t exist. (The Web was invented in 1989 and took several years to become popular.) The Bee Gees released the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever. San Francisco elected Harvey Milk, NASA’s prototype Space Shuttle was only taxiing, and NASA launched the Voyager space probes. British Airways began Concorde supersonic service between London and New York. Egyptian President Anwar Sadat visited Israel for the first time. The U.S. government introduced “Food Stamps,” the then new way to help lower income Americans avoid starvation.

    That was a long time ago.

    Some of Trump’s supporters are pretending that Trump is a clever tax manipulator. That could backfire if his lawyers and accountants feel that such a claim could affect them and expose them to legal trouble. In which case, we’ll see more revelations.

    Trump’s smartest move, though he isn’t very smart, is simply to admit he had a very bad year and leave it at that. Of course, that would not do much for his image, or his vanity.
