trump’s house of financial cards as fake as his qualifications to be where he is right now,

Well, we know that trump is a huge bag of hot air. But, it turns out that his financial empire is just that too…another bunch of hot air. That really shouldn’t surprise us because we know just about everything he says is based on some sort of falsehood or attempt to mislead. Why would his “great financial success be the same?”

After all, we already knew that he had gone bankrupt 5 or 6 times, and at least one of those was in a Casino. As a dear friend of mine says “how could you lose money in a Casino? The entire business is slanted in your favor”. Well, we know the answer to that. He invested in too many casinos in the same town, and ended up competing against himself and then, on top of that, mismanaged it till he went bankrupt. Even his father sinking millions into the business by buying chips he never intended to use didn’t bail the business out.

Then, of course, we had the flim-flam about his taxes being audited, and that preventing him from sharing his tax returns as has every other candidate for the job of President in recent years. Followed by his absolute refusal, even to point of threatening a lawsuit to prevent Congress, who has over-sight powers, from getting the results.

Well, now we know why. The State of New York subpoenaed the records and got them. And here is how it lays out. In 2016 and 2017, trump paid a grand total of 750.00 each year. Now for a billionaire to only pay that much, he would have to either have a lot of expenses or be very dishonest…in other words, cheating on his taxes. Not only that but in the 10 years prior to those two years, records show he paid zero taxes.

In order to justify that, he maintains every year, that while he makes hundreds of millions of dollars every single year, he racks up tremendous debt every year as well. That doesn’t make him a “good businessman” regardless of how many people have been snowballed by this con-man.

He is barely paying his daily expenses apparently, which would indicate that he is such a poor financial person that it literally takes hundreds of millions of dollars to live after maintaining the businesses. Or, there is another possible explanation that I tend to lean toward because although I have no respect for his supposed “financial skill”, something doesn’t ring right to me on that. The option is that he doesn’t make hundreds of millions of dollars a year and that his whole “financial empire” is a house of cards and a con-game from start to finish.

That would be in agreement with the lies and chicanery that everything else he does and says are full of. So, if nothing else, the man is a con through and though. At least he is “consistent”. And some STILL think this lunatic shell game player is qualified to be in the highest office in the land, even though he showed zero capacity in almost four years.

Really, how brain dead ARE his worshipers?
