Donald Trump Fleeced The IRS

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m not surprised about Donald Trump‘s taxes. If anything, The New York Times‘ article confirmed two things that I already knew: our tax system is a joke and Trump isn’t NEARLY as successful as he pretends to be. In any case, this may some crazy, but I’m not even that mad at Trump. Honestly, I find all of this funnier than I probably should, man. The fact of the matter is, he was able to fleece the IRS because the system is fucking broken. Or, rather, it’s working exactly the way it was designed for the 1 Percent.

Ok, for those who missed it, The Times just exposed like two decades of Trump’s tax returns. Now, as expected, there are shenanigans galore, fam. Essentially, in 10 of the last 15 years, Trump hadn’t paid ANY federal taxes. In addition, in two of those other years, he only paid $750 each year. Yes, that’s correct, bruh. Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, paid these same United States $1500 in taxes across two years. In addition, he’s continually claimed losses and even collected a $72.9 million refund once. All in all, Trump’s finances are chock-full of all manners of fuckery, son.

Now, just in case people don’t understand how absurd this is, attorney Max Kennerly compared Trump’s 2017 tax return to Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. During that year, Biden paid the government about $3.7 million. Harris paid roughly $500K, Sanders paid $300K and Warren paid $270K. So, the man who’s leading the “free world” and supposedly more successful than his competitors is paying EXPONENTIALLY less than everyone else. Frankly, it’s disgusting, man.

All I know is, THIS type of shit is why there’s a backlash against capitalism and the wealthy. The truth is, A LOT of these motherfuckers just don’t pay their fair share, fam. I mean, it’d be one thing if they paid their taxes and gave their employees a decent wage. Instead, they bleed the average American dry AND leave us to carry the country’s tax burden. Keeping it a buck, Trump may be one of the most egregious examples, but he’s FAR from the only one who takes advantage of this system.

In the end, what else do people need to know, bruh? Ultimately, a number of Trump supporters voted for him because he’s “good for business.” By and by, this false narrative “allowed” them to look past the blatant racism and xenophobia. However, the numbers are cut and dry, son. He ruined a good economy, which he inherited, AND he’s been losing money for EONS. At the end of the day, EVERYONE knows what they need to do in November, man. Fuck this guy, fam. That is all. LC out.

How Can The Government Afford To Give Everyone $1,000?

So, before I even begin, let me say that I already know the answer to the question that I asked above. Frankly, I just think it’s quite funny that the United States government is getting into its socialism bag in order to help average Americans. Now, don’t get me wrong, son. On the real, I’m part of a family of four (going on five). Meaning, I’ll take that direct deposit, if they’re offering (without strings). However, it’s truly interesting that Donald Trump and company can find the money for this, after we’ve been told for eons that they can’t cover the basic needs we’ve been demanding.

Ok, for those who missed it, in response to the fallout from the coronavirus, the government is looking to give the American people a relief payment. So, according to reports, the plan is to give each adult $1,000 and each child $500. So, in a case like mine, my family would get roughly $3,000. Now, to be fair, I’m not against this idea at all. In fact, given the scores of people who’ve already lost their jobs and/or face other financial hardships, I believe this is a good move. But, I’d be lying if I said that I was taken aback by this sudden “generosity.” The truth is, anytime a politician or a pundit asks for more government assistance, their views are shunned.

Look, let’s be real, man. Shit, how long has Andrew Yang been preaching about a universal basic income? How long has Bernie Sanders talked about Medicare for All and eliminating student debt? Honestly, I’m not even here to discuss their feasibility. In fact, I’m just here to respond to people who’ve said that we couldn’t afford it as a country. Listen, we always find money for the military and now we’re magically finding money for this stimulus package. So, are Sanders and Yang actually crazy? Or, are they just being realistic about how much money the government has to play with?

In the end, I’m not here to endorse Sanders or Yang or any other candidate, for the matter. Ultimately, I’m just pointing out the fact that the government has us fooled about how much they could actually help the people. By and by, I’m not the guy who thinks that everything should be free for everyone. But, I do believe that us “common folk” shoulder way more weight than we should, fam. At the end of the day, don’t let the powers that be front like they ain’t got it, bruh. Yes, they fucking do, brethren. That is all. LC out.
