$70,000 Follicle Farce


On Sunday September 27, 2020 the New York Times gave readers a glimpse into Trump tax shenanigans. Media sources worldwide ran with revelations Trump avoided paying taxes for much of the past 20 years, paying only $750 in both 2016 and 2017. Bombshell? Not really. Taxation isn’t fair, scores of tax lawyers exist for the sole purpose of billing $1,000 an hour to keep wealthy client money out of federal coffers.

Rather than cluck over Trump paying a mere $750 in 2016 and 2017, ponder this deduction – while working on “The Apprentice” Trump claimed to have spent $70,000 on “hair styling” , writing it off as a business expense. Daughter Ivanka claimed $100,000 in hair and make-up expenses paid to Trump “entities” during the same time period.

Never mind Trump telling Playboy in a 2014 interview that he wouldn’t let anyone other than Melania cut his hair, I digress. Great link from Town & Country below…..

Why should hard working school teachers, nurses, bus drivers or municipal employees subsidize Trump’s follicle farce by paying their fair share of taxes? Who decides outrageous “celebrity” vanity is a justifiable tax credit? Who audits this crap? Concurs Trump’s asinine comb-over worthy of a $70,000 business expense? Sweet mercy. Enough!
