‘I’d take that bet’: Dem lawmakers strike back at Sarah Sanders for calling them too dumb to read Trump’s taxes

Published

on

During a Fox News interview Sunday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed that elected officials are likely “not smart enough” to understand President Donald Trump’s tax returns if he released them.

It prompted members of Congress to strike back with a bet of their own.

“I’d be happy to take that bet. Try me,” said Rep. Sean Casten (D-IL).

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) echoed the sentiment with his own smackdown.

“Maybe she’s right because I don’t understand why the @GOP tax law increased taxes on middle-class families in my district. Can you help me understand?” he asked, dripping with sarcasm.

“It turns out that when you cap the SALT deduction people’s taxes go up,” Casten told Lieu. “Voters in #IL06 were smart enough to figure that out back in November. I bet they could help @presssec understand her boss’ taxes too.”

Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL) had her own take on the issue, saying that there are members of Congress who have a plethora of experience. She advised that firebombing members with her sneers aren’t exactly the way to win friends and influence people.

“Let me remind @PressSec that WE have MA in Political Economy, we are doctors, lawyers, former CIA agents, former Mayors, scientists maybe it’s you who wouldn’t be able to explain? Either way using insulting comments are never a good way to begin this or any conversation,” she tweeted Sunday.

Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA) agreed, noting that Sanders can hurl insults all she wants but that the president still is required to follow the law, just like every other person in the United States.

Published

President Donald Trump appeared to try and turn the attention back to him in a series of bizarre Wednesday night tweets.

In one, he promoted a fake TIME magazine graphic showing himself running for office for the next 1,000 years. Trump, who has a history of creating fake TIME magazine covers, didn't comment on it, but it showed the campaign yard sign saying, "Trump 2020, Trump 2024, 2028," well into the year 3,000 to 40,000 and beyond.

It then says "Trump 4Eva."

Trump has made casual "jokes" about being jealous at the Chinese president, who he refers to as a "king."
