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