Trump trashes ‘failing’ New York Times over explosive report that exposed his family’s tax scams

Published

on

On Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump lashed out at the New York Times for its 14,000-word investigation piece of his family’s multigenerational tax scams, by which the family dodges taxes through shady accounting and possible fraud.

The report, based off of his father Fred’s tax returns and other sensitive documents, showed that the president had lied about receiving a $1 million loan from his father, actually starting off with $400 million, and that the Trumps, including Donald’s sister, a federal judge, acted together to transfer wealth from the dying father without paying taxes.

“The Failing New York Times did something I have never seen done before. They used the concept of ‘time value of money’ in doing a very old, boring and often told hit piece on me,” Trump tweeted. “Added up, this means that 97% of their stories on me are bad. Never recovered from bad election call!”

He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.

The NRA hired a CFO who was caught embezzling: report

Published

Wilson "Woody" Phillips, Jr. once worked at an employee-benefits consulting firm that was supposed to pay $45,000 to a Texas company. Yet, somehow, the money was rerouted.

According to a report from The New Yorker, when the companies were going back and forth about where the missing $45,000 went, they realized it had been routed to an account in Maryland, under the name of Hughes.

“They gave me records saying who the account belonged to,” accounts-payable manager Mary Hughes recalled in an interview. “And, sure enough, it was Woody’s.”
