#EndorseThis: Fox Host Presses Katrina Pierson On Trump’s Tax Returns

Share

Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson made headlines this weekend for a real whopper, claiming that Barack Obama had invaded Iraq, not George W. Bush. But the chronological flubs that spawned the creation of the #KatrinaPiersonHistory hashtag began weeks ago, when she suggested that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were responsible for the death of Army Capt. Humayun Khan in 2004.

Yesterday, Pierson appeared to be on friendlier ground, giving an interview to Fox News. But then, host Arthel Neville pressed her on whether Trump should release his tax returns. Pierson responded that the practice of presidential candidates releasing their tax returns was a “novelty.”

Neville replied, “It’s been going on since the 1970s. It’s a tradition, not a novelty. The voters want to know.”

Pierson responded, “It’s a novelty tradition.”

The Trump campaign has repeatedly refused to release the candidate’s tax returns, citing an ongoing IRS audit. However, although the law prohibits the agency itself from releasing tax returns, Trump is not legally barred in any way from doing so. As Jeffrey Toobin writes in The New Yorker,

“The main risk of disclosure is political rather than legal. Trump’s returns may show that he pays a very low effective tax rate. They may also show that he gives very little to charity, or show foreign financial entanglements.”

Last week, Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine released their own tax returns, revealing that in 2015 the Clintons made a combined $10.6 million and had an effective tax rate of more than 30 percent. During the same year Kaine and his wife made $313,441 and had an effective tax rate of 20 percent.

    I turn to something else whenever I see her. Charmed in the mornings. A good Lifetime movie or anything else during the afternoons. Like I saw my Babysitter eat a peach or something.

    He won’t show his tax returns because he hasn’t been paying taxes and I wouldn’t be surprised if he even FILED his taxes.

    NEVER VOTE TRUMP … HE IS A DANGEROUS LIAR!!!!

      If he’s being audited, then, yes, he has filed tax returns. But I’ taking his word for the fact the he’s filed them AND is being audited. But the IRS has kind of implied that he has b/c it says that he can still release his returns while being audited.

    Katrina Pierson has lost credibility. She should resign from the Trump campaign.

    Katrina Pierson, extraordinary liar, just like her boss. What is a novelty? What is tradition? What is a novelty tradition? I thought I knew the meaning of novelty and tradition but apparently I don’t because I never realized they could be combined in any way that made sense into a novelty tradition. It was interesting to learn that stubby finger’s lawyer is ordering him around. She says her idol won’t release his tax returns until his lawyer allows him to do that. She is beneath contempt.

    The only person I can think of who has spent a longer time in Fantasyland is Sarah P. Have you noticed, she’s been keeping a low profile? I wonder if Palin’s brain has been transplanted into a younger body, so the goofiness will sound “fresher”?

      At least the half guv of Alaska has the good sense to not add any fuel to the fire that’s destroying DJT’s sinking ship–and to keep alive the possibility of later being able to comment for $$ and not have to really work again.

        Never thought of that. Faux News might be in need for another bimbo, even one who might look a bit “over-the-hill”, since Ailes (?) isn’t there to make the selection. Guess we better “Stay Tuned.” lol.

    Is it just me or has Trump hired the worst campaign crew ever. His campaign manager is being investigated by a foreign government for taking cash illegally and he has this young lady as his mouthpiece.

      The criteria for obtaining a position on the Trump Clown Car is simple…..stroke the ego of the demagogue, flatter his persona, tell him all he desires to hear about how great he is in all things, then “wham bam thank you ma’am” you have a job, truth is clearly the first casualty from the get go, so lying is and will have to be the only means to the end of “putting” this mentally unbalanced creature Donald Trump in the White House. How easy it is to realize how Hitler came to power, something that has always been inexplicable to me…..and here, in America, the very same kind of hatred of others, and willful ignorance of at least 30% of the American public have shown us the truly f-ugly in this society and the blind adherence to the utter garbage Trump is yelling at his “events”. It is hard for me to understand a 70 year old man being as ridiculously pathetic with a complete lack of intellect on full display for the world to see……quite depressing isn’t it….

    Umm. I hate to split hairs–and my memory may be faulty–but this woman claimed that BHO was responsible for invading Afghanistan, not Iraq, Mr. Disler.

    Donald “The Fraud” Trump will never be President of the United States, he never even intended to be President. His finances are in such bad shape he saw a campaign for the Presidency as a way to make easy money. So far the only money spent on advertising has been from outside groups, not one dollar from the Trump Campaign. http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/team-clinton-now-outspending-trump-ads-52-million-0-n626236

    US Banks are unwilling to loan him money because of all his bankruptcies, so he has gone overseas for loans. Perhaps all his fawning over Putin is because that is where Trump received his loans.

    His refusal to not release his tax forms, until after the election, just means he never intended to release them. He has always known that he will never win the White House, that is why he continues to damage his own campaign. Trump is in it just for the money.

    Trump the consummate con artist has bamboozled many Americans into donating to his campaign. Donald “The Fraud” Trump is trying to pull off the best grift ever of all time: After your supporters willingly give you their money, you don’t have to give it back.

        I believe 90% of Americans knows he’s a con-artist, but nobody cared, he seemed funny and likeable. However, since starting his sham of a campaign he seems more dangerous and despicable. I’m not sure if he really believes what he says, he just plays to the immediate crowd. He loves the applause and cheers from his adoring fans, but loves their money first. Thank goodness he will never becomes President of the United States. One good thing about Trump, he has managed to disable the Republican Party it will take years, if not decades to recover of his “Grand Old Party” and he is having a party with free money.

    Pierson is the same Trump surrogate that claimed, on CNN, that President Obama was responsible for the war in Afghanistan! The entire Trump team is afflicted by the same malady that has turned The Donald’s bid for the presidency into the biggest political joke in American history. They should all consider emergency lobotomies performed by Dr. Carson at Egyptian granaries.

    The first time I saw her on television, she was wearing a necklace made of bullets. When I noticed that, I knew right away that anything that she would say would be BS. I was right.
