Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 23, 2021

Of all the journalism that emerged from Donald Trump's time in office, some of the most damning was a series of articles from The New York Times detailing how the president had inherited millions from his father largely through suspect tax schemes, ripped off tenants while lining his pockets, and, for a number of years, paid less in taxes than people living below the poverty line. When the stories, which relied on tax documents obtained by Trump's niece, Mary Trump, were published in 2018 and 2020, the president was characteristically apoplectic. His lawyers vehemently denied the allegations, insisting that "most, if not all, of the facts appear to be inaccurate," and claiming that "there was no fraud or tax evasion by anyone." If there was, however, Trump had "virtually no involvement whatsoever with these matters," as the "affairs were handled by other Trump family members who were not experts themselves."

... "there was no fraud or tax evasion by anyone." ...

If that were true, then why did the lawyers feel the need to add...

If there was, however, Trump had "virtually no involvement whatsoever with these matters,"

And

"affairs were handled by other Trump family members who were not experts themselves."

Really, the financial affairs involving billions of dollars were handled by people who did not know what they were doing?

Apparently so.
Interesting business model.
How does it work?
Sounds like something you do if you're hellbent on going broke.
I mean, it's so dumb only someone who'd go broke running a casino would fall for it

Dumb Eric first, Donnie Wanabe second, and Ivanka, oh dear, dear Ivanka, last but not least. Sad. But all to a Higher Purpose: Me.
