New Hillary Ad Hits Trump On Tax Reveal [VIDEO]

BOOM:

A new video released by Hillary Clinton’s campaign alleges that “Donald Trump is a business failure who has gotten rich at your expense.” “That’s what three pages of his tax returns show,” the video wraps by saying. “Imagine what he’s hiding in the rest.”

The video, posted Monday morning to Clinton’s Twitter account, follows the bombshell report from the New York Times, which published three pages of Trump’s 1995 tax returns Saturday night. Those pages showed Trump reported $916 million in losses that year, an amount that would have allowed him to avoid paying any federal income taxes for an 18-year stretch.

    the Bernie appearance is a great idea

    • Yeah, especially with the $15/hour figure. It’s actually people making as low as $7.25/hour paying taxes.

      Next they need an ad repeating Trump’s claim that wages are too high.

    • StillALiberal

      And the finishing tagline “Imagine what he’s hiding in the rest.” just ties up the ad perfectly.

    But…but…but Trump must be a great businessman because he says so… and Giuiiani and Christy say he is a genius, so it must be so……

    • Blake Mason

      Not only does he say so, but many other have also, the smartest people. So I hear.

      • 2patricius2

        The best people… the kind who love America so much they wave the Confederate battle flag….

        • David Walker

          …and waive paying their taxes.

    • RoFaWh

      He claims he pays other taxes.

      As though that excuses his own non-payment, legal or not, of income taxes.

      • IamM

        The 47% of Americans that Rmoney called freeloaders pay those other taxes too. And most probably more so than Trump.

  • Blake Mason

    How can he complain about the infrastructure, schools, vets, debt…. if he does not pay taxes? It’s like someone choosing not to vote and then bitching about representatives.

    On Feb. 23, 2012 Trump tweeted this, “HALF of Americans don’t pay income tax despite crippling govt debt…” He complains that people aren’t paying taxes thereby increasing America’s crippling debt and that its roads and airports are a mess, but then it’s revealed he might not have paid ANY income tax in more than two decades. And he says that makes him smart. Smart? Not really. A yuuuuuuuge hypocrite, most definitely.

  • Blake Mason

    This is why Marc Cuban is his nemesis. Legit Billionaire vs deadbeat.

    • Dramphooey

      I never really thought about it; that would be grating. Cuban is a real entrepreneur and Trump has built a one hundred per cent false narrative. That is sickening.

    • RoFaWh

      Cuban gives the lie to a lot of Drumpf’s lies.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Once again, Trump provides all the fodder needed. This man is nuts and, apparently, many people think so. This morning’s NYT article is illuminating: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/03/opinion/campaign-stops/donald-trump-terroristic-man-toddler.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur

    • Marides48

      I hear he’s moving to Canada when he loses the election.

      • Blake Mason

        Hopefully Canada will build a wall that they make the US pay for. what happened to Trump wall anyway? Is he saving that zinger for the next debate?

        • RoFaWh

          Wall? What wall? To even mention it is so last-week.

          [Remember, Drumpf lives entirely in the moment so whatever folly he committed in the past is as if it had never happened. Except for interminable fussing about fat beauty queens.]

      • We have kind of high taxes up here. And supposedly (somewhat) less loopholes.

        • Chucktech

          You also have kind of good health care for all, kind of good social services, kind of good schools, kind of good infrastructure, and kind of functioning government. We’re kind of envious.

      • RoFaWh

        The nice people in Immigration could very well say “no” on the grounds that Drumpf’s rants often would qualify as hate speech under Canadian law. “Canada doesn’t need people like you.”

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    You know, for every tea-party rant about welfare queens, entitlements and handouts, please counter with: Someone receiving SNAP (food stamps) is under $130.00 per MONTH.

    I would rather someone get $130.00 a month to buy food, than Donnie, self professed rich person, essentially having his BILLION dollar losses subsidized by you and me. [Another Trump hand-out, he applied for and received 9/11 money, even though his properties were unaffected. Rosie O’Donnell donated a million dollars. Trump, as far as we can tell, donated nothing]. He is perhaps the biggest [individual non-corporation] welfare queen in the country.

    • Blake Mason

      According to Trump logic… that would make them wellfare queens smart.

    • Jerry

      What’s never mentioned is that the real welfare queens generally have “Inc.” after their name. If you add all the welfare benefits including food and housing programs together, then multiply by 3, you would almost get the total paid in various subsidies to corporations each year.

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        Yup. For example, we all subsidize Walmart by providing insurance subsidies & food stamps for their low-paid employees, while I’m guessing the Walton family finds ways to offshore or otherwise dodge the same level of tax liability that you and I pay. Beyond that, they have documented far higher instances of calling 9/11 that other similar stores, so we are also subsidizing their understaffed security.

        And should we add churches and religious institutions to that Welfare Queen list?

        But as many have said over the years, if you can keep middle class and lower class Americans fighting among themselves, you can pick their pockets and they won’t notice.

        • Jerry

          I was referring to the direct subsidies they receive…but the indirect subsidies, when they don’t pay their employees enough, are also HUGE for retailers and fast food.

  • Gerry Fisher

    The headline is great. Calling him a “business failure” is more baiting. Let’s hope that it has an effect similar to “Alicia Machado.”

    • Chucktech

      I’d prefer “Business Loser,” but that’s just me.

  • bkmn

    Born to wealth, given a leg up by a large loan from daddy, excellent at scamming people…what’s not to love?

  • tominsf

    Except that there’s no evidence that he’s gotten rich. He started out that way by inheritance, and various sources claim he’d have done at least as well just by leaving what he inherited in the stock market. And then he goes and loses close to a billion, that we know about.

    It’s difficult for me to get excited about him following the tax code to use that loss to offset future income. That provision is there to keep businesses from going under during a bad period. Lots of businesses and individuals take advantage of it. Of course it might be useful to reform it to apply to small/medium businesses only. The problem is Trump claiming to be a brilliant businessman after losing that billion.

  • MikeBx2

    It will be interesting to hear how Pence plays this tomorrow night. If he sticks with the “paying no taxes makes Trump a genius” response, game over. Kaine might as well go full SNL and say “I think I’m going to be Vice President”.

  • Rex

    We don’t want a typical politician for president!
    We want a businessman to run the country!
    Then next time find a successful one that isn’t a maniac.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      I’d actually understand someone voting for Warren Buffet or Bill Gates. At least they’re not total sociopaths and incompetents.

      • Blake Mason

        or Bloomberg for that matter. He is republican right?

        • Skeptical_Inquirer

          He’s either Republican or independent. I’m not saying I’d personally vote for them but at least I wouldn’t think their voters were praying for someone to mash the nuke button on a whim or just letting their VP do all the work while golfing.

      • RoFaWh

        Buffet, yes, except he’s pretty old now. Gates, no way.

  • safari

    Calling him a “business failure” will probably result in him late-night tweeting about just how smart he is by detailing his various, possibly illegal, scams.

    • David Walker

      If the tweets are sent to Joe, we’ll see ’em here first.

  • GayOldLady

    Mark Cuban’s explanation that this “business loss”, may be a tax shelter is the most intriguing scenario I’ve read yet. There’s a video at the bottom of this link featuring Poppy Harlow talking to Mark Cuban and it is very interesting

    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/mark-cuban-donald-trump-tax-shelter

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    I wonder if billionaires are hating the idea of people thinking they’re just as creepy and low brow as Trump is.

    • David Walker

      Imagine a NALT (Not All Like That) for billionaires. Love it!

    • The_Wretched

      Marc Cuban certainly does. He also pointed out that the losses could be ‘notional’ – i.e. made up. Cuban said that he was approached with similar schemes back in the same time period and declined (and paid at least some tax as a result).

      • Ore Carmi

        Now that would be a huge reveal!

  • TuuxKabin
    • Chucktech

      Jesus, so fucking presidential…

      • TuuxKabin

        How very presidential.

    • The_Wretched

      I’d say it shows he’s not fit for office but what’s another drop of water in the ocean?

      • TuuxKabin

        Yeah, not much.

    • RoFaWh

      At least this confirms the widely held belief that Drumpf has always been “like this”.

    • Herald

      It also confirms he did his normal research and investigating before flying off into an incoherent rage.
      Trump snapped that he didn’t read the story. “No one reads the story,” the 41-year-old blustered. “I read the headline and I didn’t like it.”

  • Macbill

    Wouldn’t it be great if Trump loses the value of his “brand” and people rush to remove his name from their buildings around the world? TRUMP = FAKE

    • Dazzer

      Apparently his accountants value the Trump name as being worth $3 billion.

      It’ll be worth $30 by the time the election comes round.

      • Ross

        $30?

        Hummmm. Perhaps one digit too much.

        • The_Wretched

          The 3?

          • IamM

            Apparently part of the reason the banks were so kind to help him avoid personal (financial) bankruptcy during that fiasco was expectation that the damage to the Trump brand would drag down what they could recoup selling the properties. 20/20 hindsight, but maybe they should have just licensed other rich people’s names to slap on them.

    • RoFaWh

      There was talk in Vancouver about removing the garish gold “Trump” from his building there.

      Don’t know if it happened or not.

    • James

      It’s amazing to me that anyone ever thought it did have value. I see Trump and I think cheap, flashy crap.

  • Since there are 40% of the electorate who are voting for him no matter what, Hillary has to a) make sure her supporters actually turn out; b) reach those Bizarro World denizens who are “undecided”; c) reach those “progressives” (scare quotes intended) who are voting Trump/Stein/Johnson because Hillary is so, so bad and totally evil and corrupt and everything.

    Unfortunately, too many on the left believe that a Trump presidency will mean some kind of magical “reset” of democracy, or will launch a totally cool revolution, just like in the commercials.

    For those of you voting Hillary, godspeed and drag your friends out.

    For those of you not, grow up.
