“Donald J. Trump declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 income tax returns, a tax deduction so substantial it could have allowed him to legally avoid paying any federal income taxes for up to 18 years, records obtained by The New York Times show.”
Thus begins the New York Times story that continues to dominate the headlines this week, and for good reason. Because as Hillary Clinton asked recently, “What kind of genius loses $1 billion in a year?”
OK. Give or take a few hundred thousand. But you get the idea.
Because all this time Trump has been bragging and boasting about his phenomenal business acumen and his remarkable properties that he has done such an outstanding job of developing into the absolute envy of the world…
And then comes the boom.
Between now and Election Day, that ought to be the question every Trump supporter should be asking themselves (even though they won’t, because simply supporting Trump is an act of denial), is what the hell kind of business genius is this?
