After the New York Times dropped a bombshell report about President Donald Trump’s taxes for the past two decades, his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, noted one of the stories in his book Disloyal.

“Conversely, as you’ll see in later pages with potential criminal consequences when it came time to pay taxes–an obligation Trump didn’t minimize or avoid, but rather almost certainly illegally evaded — the same properties would be deemed essentially worthless, or better yet, the subject of giant capital losses which he could then deduct,” Cohen wrote on page 94.

“I remember sitting in Trump’s office on the 26th floor when a tax refund check for $10 million from the government arrived. He held the check up for me to see, flabbergasted but also delighted.”

“Can you believe how f*cking stupid the IRS is?” Trump asked. “Who would give me a refund of ten f*cking million dollars? They are so stupid!”

Cohen has sounded the alarm about Trump’s taxes for the past several years, which led to an investigation from the New York Attorney General’s Office that is still ongoing.

After all, Trump is a sociopathic narcissist with the emotional control of a — well, I won't insult toddlers with the comparison — and he lives in mortal terror of being viewed as a loser. He's already made clear that he will refuses to concede, no matter what, and he's grasping desperately for any way to get legal ballots thrown out so he can steal the election.

GOP senator offended LDS community after likening Trump to a ‘selfless’ Book of Mormon hero: report

Published

Politics and religion are colliding out west after comments a Republican senator made while stumping for the president.

"Sen. Mike Lee drew criticism from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week after comparing President Donald Trump to Captain Moroni, a heroic and selfless figure in the Book of Mormon," The Arizona Republic reported Friday evening.

"To my Mormon friends, my Latter-day Saint friends, think of him as Captain Moroni," Lee (R-UT) said, pointing to Trump. "He seeks not power, but to pull it down. He seeks not the praise of the world or the ‘fake news,’ but he seeks the well-being and the peace of the American people."
