Donald Trump Jr. Defends Father After Protester Brings Up Tax Returns

During an appearance campaigning for Republicans in Montana, Donald Trump Jr. dispatched a heckler who said he wanted to see President Donald Trump’s tax returns, noting that the returns obtained by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow showed “he paid a much higher percentage in taxes than (Democrat presidential candidate) Bernie Sanders and (former President) Barack Obama.”

According to KFBB-TV, Trump Jr. was in East Helena on Thursday to campaign at a rally for Greg Gianforte, the Republican running to fill a vacancy left when Ryan Zinke was appointed by President Trump to lead the Department of the Interior.

Outside the venue, several dozen protesters supporting Democrat candidate Rob Quist lined up, and a few managed to make their way inside the hall. According to The Associated Press, two had to be removed.

One of them, however, gave Trump Jr. an opportunity the protester would come to regret.

“How about your dad’s tax returns? I’d like to see them,” one protester — later identified as Mark Girdler of Helena –shouted.

As boos rained down on the protester from the crowd of 300, Trump Jr. said the protester had already seen the president’s taxes — courtesy of MSNBC.

“I don’t know — I think Rachel Maddow released something showing he made 150 million bucks and paid $45 million in taxes,” Trump Jr. said. “I think the ones that were released showed that he paid a much higher percentage in taxes than Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama. And made a lot of money in the process. So guess what? You can do it all. You can pay your taxes and I think that is what he did.”

“Thank you for the intro to that, because I wouldn’t have gone there,” he quipped.

Also, just out of curiosity, want to know another person who paid less in taxes than President Trump? Rob Quist, the aforementioned Democrat candidate whose supporters were demanding to see Trump’s returns.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t just because of creative deductions; according to KGVO-FM, the state of Montana has no less than three tax liens against the Democrat candidate.

Maybe — and this is just me spitballing here — it’s time for the Democrats to start asking their own candidates for tax returns instead of beating the dead horse of Donald Trump’s 1040s.
