President Donald Trump suffered a courtroom loss when a judge ruled that an accounting firm must turn over eight years of tax returns as part of a campaign finance investigation.
Trump reacted on Twitter by complaining that “radical left Democrats” were pushing New York prosecutors to investigate his dealings, and he griped that no other president had been treated so unfairly.
“The Radical Left Democrats have failed on all fronts, so now they are pushing local New York City and State Democrat prosecutors to go get President Trump,” he tweeted. “A thing like this has never happened to any President before. Not even close!”

Other social media users doused the president in mockery.
Yes, because they released their tax returns.

Lincoln and Kennedy were literally assassinated but you keep crying because you are a racist fucking criminal and deserved to be impeached.

A second #Whistleblower has come forward, and now you’re ordered by a judge to turn over your tax returns.
The walls are closing in.

These tweets are starting to become like bad re-runs of a low ratings reality show. I think we’re all fed up with the scandals and ready for an actual leader that doesn’t tweet the same crap every day.

Please stop whining.

Trump’s tax returns will probably show –
A. He isn’t a billionaire
B. He’s avoided tax for decades
C. He’s eyeballs deep in debt
D. He’s been laundering Russian mob money
Or any combination of the above.
