That is without a doubt the very first time I ever felt anything but contempt for Ann Coulter.

Dear Ann: You helped him get elected. I knew from the get-go (or at least strongly suspected) this is what we'd find out if Trump's taxes ever got outed. Where was your big brain in 2016?

50% for tax? Thank you for your contribution, and welcome to my world.

I don't agree with Ann Coulter on virtually anything but she's joined the resistance and I recognize she's not corrupt like some of Trump's supporters. She has an ideology she believes in an will call out Trump's hypocracy when she sees it. She got fed up with Trump a while ago

I think Coulter has it a bit wrong. It's not that Trump uses the tax code to avoid taxes, its that he may be doing it fraudulently. Trump's effective tax rate is far below others with similar income and assets. I do agree the tax code is broken but I don't see us fixing it anytime soon.

As an Open Borders person, I cannot support Ann Coulter in any manner. She is almost as bad as Steven Miller.
What Ann and I have in common is that we are both white males.

Here is a crazy radical idea, rather than spend countless years bickering over things that will never have any resolution like abortion, let us all focus in things we can work together to fix like the broken (tax system, healthcare system, education system, war mongering system, criminal justice system) and decaying infrastructure.

Its not that hard and I dont think most people are far apart on these things either.

We have many problems that could be easily fixed if the country's very richest people didn't profit from the existing system.

My sales bonus paid out earlier this year saw nearly ten times the amount Trump paid in 2016 confiscated from me before I ever saw it by Trump's Treasury Department. I am not a billionaire--just average American middle class.

That was painful enough to realize so much of the fruit of my labor was basically stolen from me. The sting didn't go away. It just intensified.

Americans aren't free. They are tax slaves to this corrupt government.

Also have you been reading WSJ'S Peggy Noonan lately? She has been critical of T for months.

Her fame is based on getting people's knickers in a twist, and up until the last couple years it was the liberals who were easiest to bait. Now we have a world full of hyper sensitive, ready to rage trumplings, and Coulter saying vaguely liberal things will grant her a a rich vein of outrage to monetize for years to come.

For those that dispute the tenderness of the trumplings, would direct you to reddit.com/r/conservative, and invite you to make a post in any way critical of trump and see how fast you get banned.

Does anyone have a link to a pro-trump message forum that isn't a trumpling safe space? I'd like to have a hypothesis disproved...

Consumption taxes are the most logical. You can hide your income, but not your consumption unless you grow it yourself. What do we care what someone is paid? It is their consumption that competes with you for resources.

Not really a fan of Coulter but she gave an interesting interview about a year ago on Trump's psyche. It's nearly an hour and echoes what others have said more recently, like Woodward and Scaramucci.

Trump isn't playing 4D chess, he usually thinks like an overgrown child:

Tax law needs to be reformed to substantially limit deductibility of partnership losses. This is how Trump gets away with paying no tax. I worked for IRS for 33 1/2 years and audited several real estate professionals paying little or no tax for years.

Dump the personal income tax. Just tax business to balance the budget. Get rid of all monies loans whatever to foreign countries. If you care go over there and help them!
Senators and congressman participate in all wars on the front lines.

This is how we were founded.

We need a corporate AMT for all companies. No exceptions. You shouldn't be allowed to say you are losing money and get a check back from uncle sam.

How can you trust anything Coulter says ? She has about as much credibility as Trump.
