Looking at Trump’s tax returns tells me he must have studied under Leona.

Today, Friday, December 30, 2022, the House Ways and Means Committee released six years’ worth of former President Trump’s tax returns, totaling more than 45 documents with hundreds of pages. The full report, supplementary documents, and Trump’s tax returns as filed run over 6,000 pages.

Here are links to his 1040s.

In 2018, after a meeting at Camp David in Maryland, Trump spoke to reporters and when asked about Michael Wolff’s new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, he said:

“I went to the best colleges for college. I had a situation where I was a very excellent student, came out, made billions and billions of dollars, became one of the top business people, went to television, and for ten years was a tremendous success, as you probably have heard, ran for president one time and won.”

While Trump holds a single degree—from the University of Pennsylvania—it sure looks like he studied at the school of Only Little People Pay Taxes.

2023 looks promising, entertaining, and satisfying in a schadenfreude sort of way.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
