Trump paid $70,000 for hair styling one year but only paid $750 in taxes.

Trump spent more than $70,000 to style his hair when he was on 'The Apprentice' and wrote it off as a business expense: NYT

The Times found that Trump avoided paying federal income taxes for 10 of the past 15 years and paid just $750 in taxes in both 2016 and 2017.

This is the successful business man that is capable of making our nation economically better? The man who lost so much money that he paid no takes (or very little taxes for 15 years? The man that paid less taxes than even a poor man paid? The man that paid less taxes than the average American who pays an average of $12,000 per year? This is the man that understands and supports "his people"?

We need to start paying more attention to Trump's hair than to paying for testing for the virus!

I mean the hair on that picture is way more stylish than his actual hair.

Another dud.

No secret Russia deals. No Michael Cohen stuff. Nothing illegal.
And he was under audit.
Won't change any minds.

Oh, it doesn’t need to! He’s already drowing nationally. It just needs to keep that htere and kill days off the calendar for him.

And then after he loses the election he gets arresed.

$70K for Trump's hair is less than what it cost taxpayers for Pelosi's hair salon stunt.

...ceteris paribus, except your orange crush was a 'd', and you're squawking like ruse limbaugh's parrot...

...remember republitrumpkins, it's better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open one's hole and remove all doubt... ;)

[...i'm loving this...all the idiot republicans claiming the orange puppet is some titan of industry are now exposed as gd fools...loooooove it!!!...trump: the prototypical $500 haircut on a $5 dollar head..] :D

If the show had hair stylists and makeup artistis, etc, which presumably they would have, that would seem to be normal course for the entertainment industry, the cost is obviously a legitimate business expense.

Trump is going to have a major problem with all of his bank loan documents.

Comments like his are just meant to self-sooth.

One might come to believe that Trump is becoming a bit worried about his tax obligations and the multiple business loans soon coming due.

Latest Trump bid to shield taxes meets skeptical judges
Lawyers for Donald Trump were met with skepticism from federal appeals court judges as they made their latest attempt to block New York prosecutors from getting their hands on his tax filings and other financial documents through a grand jury subpoena.

“Are you asking us to change the way grand juries have done their work from time immemorial just because we’re dealing with somebody who’s president of the United States?” U.S. Circuit Judge Robert Katzmann asked Trump lawyer William Consovoy at a hearing on Friday. The case is being heard by a three-judge panel of the court.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. is seeking eight years of the president’s taxes and other financial records as part of a grand jury investigation looking into matters including payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.

For those curious about how the Trump v. Vance case has not been shot down by the SCOTUS, I offer the following from ScotusBlog.com
"On July 9, the Supreme Court issued its decision in Trump v. Vance. By a vote of 7-2, the justices rejected the president’s claim that he is always immune from state grand jury proceedings while he is in office."

The decision by the Supreme Court does look to have some sweeping indicators for other potential cases involving DJT.

Great example of how the "reight wing 'judges rule according to law and not desired results.

Kinda looks to me like the only judges that got that one wrong are the reight wing judges.

If you are going by what the law says, show us where it requires anyone to share their tax returns with the public.

is it? He was claiming it for a haircut. He can claim their salary, but not his actual haircut or hair coloring or hair implants...why? Because you wear those in non business environments....like at home. He wouldn't list their salary under hair care either.

start being investigated for tax evasion and see how quickly the court and investigators get access to your tax returns.
