‘You are good’: New York Times zinged after story on Donald Trump’s billion-dollar loss



As Twitchy reported Tuesday night, The New York Times obtained printouts of President Trump’s 1040s from 1985 to 1994 and found that he’d lost over a billion dollars within the course of the decade. Since nothing was out of order on the tax forms, the Times ran with the angle that lauded businessman Trump had lost so much money while holding himself out as a great deal-maker.

While Donald Trump was losing over a billion dollars in the 1980s and 1990s, he had been making himself the press ’s go-to emblem for “wealth,” @poniewozik writes https://t.co/Z0E3FWlFQB

Did you catch this? He was making himself the press ’s go-to symbol for wealth; the press had nothing to do with it, obviously.

“An investigation shows that Donald Trump’s reputation was built on reddish ink” — or, they might have just read “The Art of the Comeback. ” It’s too late to prevent the Times from doing a victory lap over Trump’s losses, but Steve Robinson, executive producer of The Howie Carr Show, did a quick investigation into the Times and its business acumen:

Wonder if NYT is still taking the losses carry forward as well.

I’m guessing they gave away their tax loss and didn’t use it from the kindness of their hearts.

You are good. Additionally, I imagine they neglected to deduct that from taxation because, “altruism” 😂
