Tax Day is exactly a week away (it’s next Tuesday, April 18), and as much as us individuals and small businesses struggle to get our returns in on time, it is clear that no one is having quite as much difficulty with his taxes as Donald Trump. When an entire country, all American media, your fellow elected officials, and your patriotic duty demand you file your taxes, not even on time, but at some point eventually, and you are still incapable, clearly you need some help – thus was born 1040fortrump.com, a website dedicated to helping President Trump, “gets the help he needs.” (more…)

In a poignant (albeit random and totally unplanned) display, the Statue of Liberty went dark for a few hours Tuesday night due to a Parks Service lighting mix-up. Accidental or not, the blackout’s timing couldn’t have been better, coming days after the release of President Trump’s new travel ban (hell, The New Yorker even called it a month ago) and minutes before International Women’s Day, as if to say that Lady Liberty herself was striking alongside her sisters (early because she’s still on France time, obviously).

He trailed Hillary Clinton, who raised more than $28 million in May, by more than $41 million, according to reports filed late Monday night with the Federal Election Commission.

New York Times, June 20, 2016

15 things Trump’s campaign couldn’t afford:

-A house with a two-car garage in Ditmas Park ($2.2 million)

Two city run animal shelters ($10 million)

-A three-bedroom condo in the Edge in Williamsburg ($2.6 million)

-The 1,100 packed containers of retail-ready liquid THC, liquid PCP, liquid HGH, psychedelic mushrooms seized by cops in Brooklyn in March ($2.5 million street value) (more…)
