Hey, Senator Warren, whatcha doin? Oh, just going on “The View” and trolling the fuck out of the Republican primary by talking about how you just LOVE Donald Trump’s super-liberal (read: mainstream) idea to make billionaires pay their fair share in taxes? That sounds like a lovely thing to do!

“There are a lot of places where he gets out and talks about important things,” Warren said of the celebrity real estate tycoon on ABC’s “The View.”

“Donald Trump and I both agree that there ought to be more taxation of the billionaires, the people who are making their money on Wall Street,” she said.

So, funny story. When Trump went on the Sarah Palin word salad talk show, he talked about how his favorite Bible verse is too personal to share, probably because it’s one of those Song Of Solomon passages about titties, but he ALSO told Palin that billionaires really should be paying more taxes. Here’s how Duchess Grifts-A-Lot set that one up:

Bloomberg reports that, well, you wouldn’t mind raising taxes on yourself, and we know our current tax code, it’s a joke, and it’s unjust, and I, though, wouldn’t be offering to let the IRS take MORE of my money, but share what you mean by fixing our screwed-up tax code!

Surely Bloomberg did lamestream media coverage and messed up what The Donald was trying to say, right? But no, Trump said this:

You have hedge fund guys that are paying virtually no tax and they’re making a fortune … Some of these hedge fund guys, they’re making a lot of money and they’re paying very little tax. It’s unfair to the middle class … We have to help the middle class.

Yeeeeeesh. So Trump says the wealthy should pay their fair share, he doesn’t seem to give one fuck about all that Christian Jesus hoo-ha malarkey, he didn’t rush to Kentucky to defend Kim Davis. What good is he as a Republican?

TRICK QUESTION, he is good at the part where you hate Mexicans and say gross things about women’s bodies. On those subjects, he is a YOOOOGE, luxurious Republican.

Anyway, good trolling though, Liz Warren. Yr Wonkette likey.

        I will always have a warm spot in my heart for Trump, for fucking those two douchebags out of a crapton of money and ruining their plans to become real-life twin versions of Montgomery Burns.

        • Lascauxcaveman

          You’re sort of losing your evil-industrialist-kingmaker touch when you pile that kinda money into a dimwit empty suit like Walker and expect to make him a president. I mean, sure, it worked for W and all that, but he at least was a brand name; something these guys should understand.

      • beatbort

        Sarah Palin has never been specific about anything. She just opens her word hole and out flies verbiage, of a sort.

    Trump: “Tax the rich!”
    GOP base: “Yeah!!!”
    GOP: “Oh fuck…”

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Well, when asked directly, an AP poll showed earlier this year that 2/3 of the public support higher taxes on wealthy people. This shit was inevitable.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        Yeah, the ‘baggers favor some reasonable things … but until Trump came along, the GOP was able to distract them with guns, gays, and God. The base never listened to the Dems – because Fucks Gnus never fairly conveyed the message – but with Trump, they’re suddenly hearing it loud and clear.

        • SpideySenser

          The sheeples!

  • Reddishrabbit

    The GOP base doesn’t mind taxing the rich, as long as the money goes to the right people (them. They are the right people. Immigrants, blacks, and younglings are not the right people).

    • VandeGraf

      The main reason the tax laws are so complicated (and squirrelly) is that the riches have had their pet legislators structure a slight of hand shell game to make certain that they– the riches– profit from it, while masking the theft with bits and pieces of middle class bait (rebates, exemptions, deductions). But, it’s been so heavy handed that there is something obviously amiss.

  • Toomush_Infer

    Is she trumping him?…

  • stankbait

    If the Kochs were taxed fully, they wouldn’t be throwing all that money at the clown car.

    • Sure they would. Even in a 1950s tax structure (what, 95%?), they’d be richer than nearly anyone else on the planet. And mad as hell to boot, the greedy bastards.

      • Left Coast Tom

        In fact, isn’t that where we ended up with Fred Koch funding the John Birch Society?

  • alwayspunkindrublic

    Of course $arah wouldn’t want the evil IRS to take MORE of her money. After all, she earned it the old fashioned way: fleecing the yokels.

        • MrBlobfish

          Yews and dems and doze.

      • Left Coast Tom

        If you call “paying her Nordstrom’s bill” “investing”…sure…

  • Logic of Color

    Queue Trump’s backpedaling in 5…4…3…

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Has he backpedaled on ANYTHING?

      • AnOuthouse

        No. He mocks anyone who has differences from his opinion. The other candidates have to tread lightly about everything. Walker couldn’t say what he’d do about Syrian refugees because the Donald has not made a proclamation yet.

    • Belasaurius

      i don’t want him to backpedal. I want this party to implode like a gas giant. I want so much carnage and….oh shit I got class, time to go indoctrinate my students. Laterz

          • Toomush_Infer

            Hey….I’m idle…

  • Latverian Diplomat

    Seems to me that Trump just hates those tax cheatin’ hedge fund guys who have the audacity to get an even more ludicrous pass from the tax code than the tax swindlin’ real estate developer tribe he belongs to.

    I’m sure it really chafes the old ball sack when he and his real estate buddies are at the golf course struggling with these crummy adamantium clubs while the hedge fun guys are showing off their fancy vibranium ones.

    • MrBlobfish

      One of them probably took his parking space one day. That will not stand.

    • alwayspunkindrublic

      Yeah, but The Donald’s clubs have the souls of dead Mexican migrants added to the alloy. You can only get them by special order at Trump outlet stores.

      • Latverian Diplomat

        That puts a much darker spin on his plan to “drive” them out of the country.

      • jmk

        Nah. The guys in yarmulkes that he likes are accountants, not hedge fund guys.

  • chicken thief

    I notice The Donald didn’t include billionaires that make their money in other ways – like real estate development.

    • alwayspunkindrublic

      Or inheritance.

  • Me not sure

    Ben Carson wants us to all tithe 10% of our income. We’ll just have to learn to police the world on stealth bicycles.

  • Relativicus

    Of course, his words have been reported as meaning he wants billionaires to pay their “fair share” in taxes. But even an amateur Trunpologist knows he’s just pissed at the fees he has to pay these hedge fund guys.

    • SnarkTank

      Most republicans just interpret “their fair share” to mean “nothing”.

  • Toomush_Infer

    Old Toomush is sorta color-blind: is her hair pink?…oh, would that it is!…

      Pink light is said to be very flattering to older ladies…I’m guessing that’s why the entire stage of The View appears to be bathed in a rosy glow, like the inside of Barbie’s house.

      I’m *almost* with you there, but… I kinda think he might be a foreign policy & diplomatic nightmare. More wars. Maybe a lot more wars. Trump’s a risk-taker. Fine when it’s his money, but when it’s our kids’ lives, I ain’t so keen on that particular personality trait.

      • thirdeblue

        You work with the crazed right-winger you have, not with the crazed right-winger you wish you had.

    • That he’s the least objectionable is what makes it terrifying that he could become president.

  • Shibusa

    What neither of them says, or prolly even knows, that the US tax code is a mess in part because Congresscritters insert loopholes in it to reward generous campaign donors. At least Palin didn’t start salad-shooting words like “double taxation” and “job creators”.

    “Don’t call us liberal. It is a pretty right position,” Warren retorted to applause, adding she believes it is a position held by a majority of Americans.

  • FLV19

    Trump makes perfect sense. Taxes should be low, easily understood, and inherently fair. The rich shouldn’t be able to influence the government to insert loopholes into the tax code. Everyone should be required to pay taxes, but taxes should be lowered across the board and the government should be forced to spend less. That is the logical and conservative position.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

        Unfortunately the beating of the war drums by the neo-conservatives and the Democrats drowned out the Old Right’s calls for a cautious foreign policy decades ago.

    So, here’s my tax plan, as opposed, say, to a certain runner-up candidate: 90% estate tax, and the top tax bracket, for $100M and above (that includes all billyunaires) at 90%, with NO EXEMPTIONS for all income over $100M. And we get rid of Form D, dividends and interest, and ALL INCOME goes into the gross income pot”.

    Oh, and the reason Cheney & the Reptilians railed against “Old Europe” was that we got rid of titles of nobility, and Europe didn’t, and they’re jealous, and think they ought to have titles, like Duke Bush, and the Duke Kochs, and squire Cruz….

  • Last Hussar

    Here’s the problem. Government spending is too complicated for the average voter to grasp – including us here. Governments run huge complicated models to try and work out what happens if you change cost ‘A’, or cost ‘B’. Then you add political dogma.

    For instance: How do you work out how much to spend per pupil:- How much do pay the teacher, how many children per class, what equipment do you buy, what pupil density in the class room works best, how do you account for regional pay differences (If a teacher spends 80% of their income on ‘living’, no matter where they are, how do you stop those in Smallville – income $30k, spends $24K from moving to Metropolis Income $60k, spends $52k. Yes that’s more than 80%, but its still and extra $2k a year in your hand)

    How do you calculate the benefit of workers who don’t directly produce something – social workers, probation officers.

    The list goes on.

    How the hell are people supposed to say – “Hmm, I don’t like paying tax, but I feel ‘x’ is a reasonable amount to keep the country where I want it to be”?
