MSNBC was excited on Tuesday night as they revealed Donald Trump’s 2005 tax return.
In their minds, the contents of the tax return would hurt Trump, but what they didn’t realize was that they accomplished exactly the opposite of that.
In fact, the tax return revealed that Trump paid $38 million in tax on $150 million in income, roughly 25 percent.
However, guess what socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders paid in 2014? A paltry 13 percent.
That’s right, Trump, who the liberal media love to attack for dodging taxes, actually paid more than Sanders who frequently bashes Wall Street and “the system.”
The liberal media certainly won’t report on this as it doesn’t fit their narrative, but the American people deserve to know about the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party and its politicians.
Watch Fox News’ Tucker Carlson point out the tax difference below:
“Sen. Bernie Sanders, who thinks everybody ought to pay more taxes because the rich are shafting the rest of us. What did he pay? 2014, Bernie Sanders paid an effective tax rate of 13.5 percent,” said Carlson.
