Can Crooked Donald pardon himself for tax evasion? I know you guys would like to find out, but will the voters?

He settles a personal lawsuit by sending a check from his "charity", i.e. other people's tax-free money.

"In another case, court papers say one of Trump’s golf courses in New York agreed to settle a lawsuit by making a donation to the plaintiff’s chosen charity. A $158,000 donation was made by the Trump Foundation, according to tax records."

There is one thing only that Trump cares about: $$$. It's amusing (or not) that so many people thinks he cares about them. Being a con artist is a skill.

herb,

The IRS should fine him, though since this was a decade ago so what took them so long? The WAPO does not list the time of the second allegation.

I have seen a spate of articles lately denigrating the white working class male in the U.S. Some even go so far as to insult the men and women who make up our armed forces. All because of political party and perceived bias. Remember Jim Webb said "If you're poor and white you're out of sight". I found this early today and want to share with the readers of SST:

Am excerpt:
What do you call sweeping generalizations about groups of people, and unfairly assigning malign, hateful motives to them, as Hillary does to Trump supporters? Well, you could say that is the definition of bigotry. Clinton and company believe that, as long as it is in the name of fighting racism, sexism, etc, then it is okay to denigrate huge swathes of people. Trashing the white trash is today’s socially acceptable form of elitist bigotry.

Imagine

After first debate: Trump basically just said in front of 100M people that he pays virtually zero federal taxes and that's a good thing. Wow. At this point I think that's going to move the needle, and I'm changing my call to Hillary by a whisker.
