Anyone Here Want to See Those Tax Returns?

Yeah, no I didn't think so.

It was startling to hear Ms. Conway declare on ABC’s “This Week” that “the White House response is that he’s not going to release his tax returns.” She cited Mr. Trump’s victory in November and said, “People didn’t care.” That she felt the need to backpedal the next morning suggests she might realize that this is not the case. Hundreds of thousands of people have signed a petition calling for Mr. Trump to release his returns. A recent Post-ABC News poll showed that 74 percent of Americans, and 53 percent of Republicans, believe he should release the documents.

I saw where she made that comment a few days ago. Thought I'd just link to this bit calling bullshit on it. More Trump administration lies. Ho-hum. 


  1. So trump's first triumph as our new American preznit was to piss off our neighbors to the south. Mexico's President Nieto declined trump's invitation to visit him in the WH.

    Here's a What If? What if trump ruins our relationship with one of our biggest trading partners, Mexico, and Mexico decides to make some really, really great deals with China.

  2. PS Don't miss reading Charlie Pierce's latest on trump's interview with Muir.

  3. It sounds like a given that he's ruining relations with Mexico. I could be wrong but it seems to me that if he puts a 20% tariff on those Mexican goods it's American consumers who pay for that. As long as he cuts the estate tax, it's all good tho.

  4. I just went and read the Pierce post. Oh God, I wish I hadn't. Well, there's only a couple hundred weeks left if we last that long.
