  5. Trump: ‘I’m smart’ for not paying taxes 
  6. Trump says he’s ‘smart’ for avoiding paying federal income taxes

…Sooooooo which is worse:

  • a Football player neglecting to kneel to an American flag


  • an American New York businessman running for President of the United States with no respect for the country such that he is anti-taxes

All Kaepernick haters x Trump supporters…may we hear from you? Are you gonna boycott Donald Trump and harass him across Twitter? Where’s your (tax-paying) outrage for the disrespect of the financial ebb and flow necessities of the country? A kneel to a flag (that you aren’t forced to pay taxes for) holds more value than jipping and fleecing the country out of the millions he otherwise should have paid during the life span of his being an American businessman?

Let hear from yous. If Trump supporters who had a problem with Colin Kaepernick not kneeling to a flag aren’t outraged (and demanding) to see that Trump has the same ‘respect for the country’,  then admit your anger at Kaepernick is not about patriotic principle but rather, something you saw as race rebellion . 

7. Clinton hits nail on head on Trump’s refusal to return his tax returnsUnderstatement. Like she suspects, he either doesn’t want to show his tax returns because he’s either not as rich as he’s lead us to believe, not as charitable as he’d like for us to believe or he’ll prove just what he brags: He doesn’t pay federal taxes.
