UH OH!! I Guess Hillary Forgot That She Didn’t Pay Taxes Last Year. Let’s Remind Her.

There is little worse in modern politics than self-righteous hypocrisy, especially when it’s based on a complete lie. A prime example of this is Hillary Clinton’s Tax returns. You may remember the outrage when Donald Trump disclosed that he used a legal tax rule to offset taxes against losses from previous years, and you may remember what Clinton Tweeted at the time:

When Trump responded, She doubled down.

 

And then her furious indignation turned to deafening silence as it turns out that she has been using the exact same tax rule to offset her own losses. For those of you unfamiliar with irony…this is the delicious type.

Zero Hedge reported:

Well this is a little awkward. With the leaked 1995 Trump tax returns ‘scandal’ focused on the billionaire’s yuuge “net operating loss” and how it might have ‘legally’ enabled him to pay no taxes for years, we now discover none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton utilized a $700,000 “loss” to avoid paying some taxes in 2015.

However, a look back at Hillary Clinton’s tax returns from 2015 (here), proudly displayed by the campaign proving she has nothing to hide – shows something awkward on page 17…

Here’s the screen shot of her taxes the article refers to.

While not on the scale of Trump’s business “operating loss”, Hillary Clinton – like many ‘wealthy’ individuals is taking advantage of a legal scheme to use historical losses to avoid paying current taxes.

Now there is of course a wider debate as to why this specific rule exists (let’s not call it a loophole as that implies there is some kind of trick to using it, it’s just a rule), and another debate as to whether or not it’s the right thing for the country to let this tax money go. But the argument here is one of hypocrites, liars and a compliant media that don’t want the public to have all the facts.

How many times did CNN or NBC call on Hillary to show her tax returns? She is (was) technically in control of huge sums of money through the Clinton Foundation after all. But no; this was reserved purely for Trump.
