In what could only be a desperate attempt to change the conversation, President Donald Trump went off on a retweeting frenzy as his taxes were exposing his years of fraud.

He began by promoting a Breitbart story about "his" economy and followed it with comments about Democrats hoping to impeach him.

Trump then moved back to retweets from the GOP about the economy and claimed that his approval rating is at an all-time high. In fact, Gallup polls do show he's higher than the incredibly low approval ratings he's had since announcing for president in 2015.

The president pivoted to share a story about the number of women who have donated to his campaign and followed it with an attack on Hillary Clinton.

It's not hard to understand why Trump would rather talk about anything other than the biggest news of the day. The bombshell New York Times report revealed he not only didn't pay taxes for eight years, but he lost $1.2 billion.

The president has claimed he is an expert businessman, the best dealmaker, a billionaire and genius for not paying his taxes. Tuesday, all of those claims were officially fact-checked as false.
