What a crooked system that allows this..

Amazon pays $0 in federal taxes.. And so do many Fortune 500 companies. They pay less than a 16-yr (or a 55-yr) old working a minimum waged job.

I agree 100%. The only difference being that Amazon doesn't run the country. At least not yet. LOL

In context, it was specifically for his appearance on the Apprentice, so it was business related. Tongue You wonder if he expenses his hair maintenance and skin conditioning to the federal government with that same reasoning of needing to keep up appearances for a part he plays.

Didn't Bill Clinton once close a major airport down for a few hours because he was having his hair cut on board Airforce 1? What is it with these guys and their hair?

Churches pay no taxes at all. At least you get something from the Zon.

Do you have any idea how expensive Russian Comb Over Technology is? I mean, they're decades ahead of the US. Of course it's much more affordable than the North Korean Ambition Haircut Technology. On a side note, Canada flat out refused to share it's Big Hand Technology with him.

I'm fairly certain that the IRS would considered that a personal expense.  As a businessman, I can't deduct my haircuts and I have to look presentable to my clients...otherwise I'd have the Tom Petty look happening.  But $200 per day to get his hair taken care of?  Roughly $1,400 per week in hair costs?  You would think that the hair stylist on the set might be an employee of the company producing the Apprentice?  Definitely seems unrealistic.  But then again I pay $20 per month or every other month on my hair, so what do I know?

A friend of mine suggested that if 45 wants to prove that the income tax story is fake news, all he has to do is release his "real" taxes.

After reading more details about Trump's past and present financial dealings and payments due in the near future, I seriously wonder whether he's going to be the first US president to, directly after leaving office, seek exile in Russia.

Perhaps that's been the Russian hold over him all this time.

"It's fake news" is generally a dead giveaway that the media hit the nail right on the head.

I do have to laugh.  I'm not a fan of AOC, but she brought up a valid point about Trumpettes.  They severely criticized her (probably deservedly so) for paying $250 for a haircut on her birthday.  Seems like they should be completely outraged over Trump paying $70,000 for haircare, which is roughly $250 each and every day of the year.

They are hypocrites and will defend their master(of puppets)whenever they get a chance no matter what.

24 hours from now Trump and Biden will have their first televised debate. I hope Joe remembers to take his meds or he will lay Trump out. Which is not a bad thing.
