Ever since he first started running for president 50 years ago. I'm going to say Donald Trump has refused to show the public his tax returns. And now we might finally know why breaking news at tax bombshell the New York Times get his hands on President Trump's taxes showing staggering business losses crushing personal debt and a tax bill. This is a fraction of what most hard-working Americans have to pay this morning the New York Times reporting it President Trump Pages $750 in federal income taxes the year. He won the White House and the same amount in his first year in office on top of that the paper says end of the 18 years examined. He paid no federal income tax in 11 of them never pays taxes, and when he does he only pays $750 me off.

No mother Wimbledon back, then you didn't pay for shit. If you didn't ship in you don't get to put your name on the card and just for those keeping School Trump paid $750 in taxes and $130,000 to a pornstar with me that the IRS wants to get money from Trump. You guys know what you got to do and the story didn't just expose how little Trump has paid in Texas over the years. It also revealed some of the accounting tricks that he used to do. It's the paper also accuses the president and his company's of cleaning questionable deductions has taken over the years are more than $70,000 for haircuts while on The Apprentice nearly $96,000 pay for Ivanka Trump's favorite hair and makeup artist in approximately two million dollars for Trump and Donald Trump Junior's legal defense for the Russia inquiry.

$9,000 for Linens and silverware and nearly $200,000 for landscaping at Mar-A-Lago in quote unexplained Consulting fees the times finding that Ivanka Trump was the recipient of some of those payments which would raise Flags because she was also an employee of the Trump organization. Okay. First of all, you don't supposed to pay an employee a consulting fee for Trump as a cruel irony that the one payments to women that might actually get him in legal trouble. What's the one woman he constantly with and the craziest thing to me is that he took a $70,000 deduction on his hair.

Because to me now it looks like two crimes might have been committed here one is Trump's tax evasion and two is whoever Swindell Trump in to pay $70,000 for what they did to him. Another handle $70,000 for Trump's head might actually make sense because whoever did that needed to bend the law of physics. I'm pretty sure that ain't cheap and if you ask me if he got out of paying taxes because I mean, let's be honest lots of billionaires do that when billionaires paying their fair share of taxes. Like I'm going to a pumpkin patch and not instagramming it it doesn't happen but was this isn't just the Trump as bad as paying taxes. It's that he's even worse at business the investigation paint the picture of a businessman whose Empire is seriously struggling according to the times most of the president's core businesses, including his golf courses in hotel just blocks from the White House report losing Millions. If not tens of millions year after year. The time says documents show the

Resident reported more than 47 million dollars in losses in 2018 alone. And he faces a personal debt totaling 420 $1000000 money that could come do while he's in office if he's elected to a second term. Okay. Can I just say if you decided to lend four hundred million dollars to Donald Trump that's on you. Yeah, I hope he doesn't pay you back because you are the one person watch with money. Then he is just take a second to think about what all this means if Donald Trump does win a second term. His creditors will come asking for their four hundred million dollars while he is still president. I don't know about you but that has me worried cuz I don't want the president's decisions for the country getting influenced by his deep financial troubles. And also cuz there's a good chance that Trump is going to pay off his debt by selling of American Treasures. How much will you guys give me for the Grand Canyon to Nature's Majesty. I'll let you have it for 40 bucks 350

I got to say guys off to reading the story in the New York Times and learning this about Trump. Everything makes so much sense now, but this text story is the Rosetta Stone that helps us figure everything else to be president. He is really needs that secret service protection cancel the election explain why Melania isn't leaving Trump mean if she divorces him. She gets half of the four hundred million dollars in debt and I'll get my truck was rooting for Bernie Sanders so hard he wanted him to win the government would bail him out. I mean, it won't make sense. Now people even explains why Trump has been destroying the post office good luck collecting your money when you can mail him a bill

Either way people America's president is in big trouble. He is a mountain of debts and his businesses are failing which is why Africans have come together to try and help out those most in need. Hello. I am here with a message for my fellow African-American has given us so much help. But now that is an American who need our help the president of the United States is in deep debt. He is so poor he has to eat out of bucket. He cannot afford to educate his children and now they are so stupid.

Everyday, he struggles to drink water, but for just be price of a cup of coffee a day. You can help me president go from being in the enormous that to be in in just a lot of debt. And if you don't eat today, you will get a personal letter from the president you had but please had it he is so he has begun to slap his wax. God bless the United Church. Thank you very much. You can help an American president in heat.

Because without your help he could soon be living in a sitar.

The Supreme Court's the only people who have more control over your life than Jeff Bezos for decades now Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the Cornerstone of the courts liberal block over the weekend Donald Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett as her replacement and it looks like having three names is the only thing she and her predecessor have in common 37 days out from election-day the presidents elected Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the seat vacated by The Lady Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Amy, Coney. Barrett would become the youngest member of the Supreme Court a native of New Orleans. She went to college in Tennessee and graduated from law school at Notre Dame where she taught law for 15 years and is a devout Catholic pushing it further to the right in 2003. She suggested that it key Supreme Court decision upholding Roe v Wade, and the right to abortion was wrongly decided if she's confirmed the court would be more likely to

Hold efforts by the states to restrict access to abortion and the court would probably be more likely to broaden the reach of gun. Right if she's confirmed by the time the Supreme Court hears a make-or-break challenge to Obama Care in mid-november. She might be inclined to rule for the red States challenging the law. She's been critical of the courts 2012 ruling upholding it to replace RBG could help overturn Roe v Wade kill Obamacare and expand gun rights? Cuz I mean someday in the future of fetus can shoot you and you don't have insurance to pay the hospital bills. This is like Mike Pence's wet dream if he was allowed to have them. Of course, I want to really shocking about these issues is how out-of-touch the Supreme Court could be from the country at large. I mean 63% of Americans won Roe v Wade Captain Place 56% support Obamacare and 64% support stricter gun laws. I guess this is what the founding fathers always wanted and all branch of government. That would act like an evil step parent for the rest of the

Please ma'am. May I have some Health Care Now go to your room and play with your AR-15.

And those are just some of the issues she won't in the next couple of years because keep in mind Barrett's is only 48 years old. So she'll be sitting on the bench for decades which is really bad news for liberals and reading bad news for her. I'm sitting on a bench for decades with no seat cushions that's going to get uncomfortable or is that not what that works like that usually confirming a supreme court nominee can take up to 3 months. You need time to get the nominee you need time to hold the hearings and you need time to take them to the mall for the glamour shots. But since the election is just five weeks away Republicans are putting the process on fast forward and based on the schedule that they put forward. They are going to vote to confirm Amy Coney Barrett just days before the election.

Are you almost have to appreciate how ballsy this is? I mean to the same party that went from puke and confirm a Supreme Court justice during the same year as an election and now they're practically confirming someone on Election Day. It's a complex legislative maneuver known as the shrug Emoji if every now and again, they slipped on a different belief, you know, like how poor people don't deserve to live to stop the nominee. In fact, Joe Biden has resorted to a teenage Republicans sense of decency and urging them to vote against filling the seat right before the election Republicans Vibe right now. I'd be the Republican Grassroots fundraising group is no offering limited edition T-shirts.

Amy Coney Barrett as it is Horry is a CB sister doesn't play in the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. RBG. Oh, yes. Nothing says class indecency, like mocking a deceased Supreme Court Justice by stealing her nickname Legacy. It's insulting to wrap because there's no way Amy Coney Barrett even knows who Biggie Smalls is I bet if you asked her she probably think you would taking measurements for her robe fitting and Amy Coney Barrett is the exact opposite of RBG. So technically she should be Tupac or should be pro-life t-shirts with dumbasses.

So look, this was lotioning moments in the American history books as a dumpster fire the worst debates in history and with all the interrupting and crossed walking. It might have even been hard to remember if anything important happened last night, but there was one moment that really stood out. Are you willing to lie to condemn white supremacist and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence and a number of big cities as we saw in Kenosha and as we've seen in Portland,

Do you want to call him? What do you want to call and give me a name? Give me an Enterprise somebody's got to do something about antifa and the left because this is not a right way home problem is I don't you instead. He's like standby guys. I never know when I'm going to need you telling white supremacist to stand down and telling them to stand by. I'm not the same thing one little word makes a huge difference like the difference between a blowout and a blowjob the wrong one at Supercuts again. I apologize. I haven't slept and I didn't read the menu properly.

Deming white supremacist and he was like one of those guys who refuses to make real apologies. I'm sorry. I'm sorry that you're unable to have a good time. Some of us are still living. And by the way, you know that you truly Bots your condemnation of a hate group when Jesus says thank you for the endorsements the proud boys of far-right extremist group immediately celebrating the present comments on social media. They went nuts on social media celebrating. They put out those words are rallying cry stand back stand by within minutes. The group's members were posting on private social media call in Trump's comments close historic the New York Times reports that some group members labeled it as a endorsement.

New recruit. Yes. Thanks to Donald Trump's failed condemnation. This hate group is now seeing an increase in recruits, which means in the history of Television that might be one of the worst answers ever given and that's coming from someone who wants guess the number 7 on Wheel of Fortune. I didn't know it had to be letters that was like America is Donald Trump's answer so much that they even adopting it and then you slogan because the one thing he definitely believes in is getting royalties the supremacy of the white man without getting done in his cut. I'll be careful if you go bankrupt but yes in a debate that consisted almost entirely of three old men trying to shout over each other this one moment was horrifying enough to break out and get noticed.

You know, it's bad when even Trump's own supporters on that saying you're doing the presents but he would not condemn white supremacist. I agree that the president had a bad Arabs and not take that was a huge gap. He was he was kind of like playing around. I didn't like that he equivocating when he could have slam dunk that do I get to get Misty way up in the history of debates by saying not condemning white supremacist. I don't know if he didn't hear it, but he's got to clarify that right away. That's like the are you against evil why the president didn't just knocked out of the park. I'm not sure.

Why didn't the president condemned white supremacy? Maybe he didn't hear the question or maybe he thought they said Sprite supremacist and he's really into Sprite icon sink of any other explanation Watson. By the way, did you notice that even when Fox people acknowledge Trump done something really bad place to give him the benefit of the doubt. I wish I had friends. That was that loyal, you know, if I shut my pants in public, none of my friends will be like Trevor didn't shoot himself his butt misspoke before we go, please remember the west coast is battling horrific wildfires that are destroying millions of acres of land and displacing thousands of people trying to change has been a key factor in increasing the risk and expense of these conditions and one organization that has me working to find practical solutions for climate change and other environmental threats is environmental defense fund if you can help them and you
