PEAK HYSTERIA: Trump’s Opponents Are Lying About Tax Cuts

We have reached peak anti-Trump hysteria. Sure, left-wing celebrities and politicians have said some stupid things over the past year. But this week Trump’s enemies have reached a new low. You see, originally, I thought that Democrats were dumb enough to genuinely believe people could die from repealing Obamacare. Then, they said repealing Net Neutrality would be the end of the internet (the policy has only been around for three years). This week, they are screaming armageddon on tax cuts not because they actually believe it. They are lying in an effort to take down President Trump.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claimed it “is the worst bill to ever come to the floor of the House.”

She tweeted that “Republicans were cheering against the children as they rob from their future and ransack the middle class to reward the rich.”

Let’s not forget this FALSE tweet by the highly respected Associated Press:

The Washington Examiner’s Tim Carney explains in this thread what’s going on:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Opinion polls show the bill is wildly unpopular, only because the middle-class think their taxes are going up. Some wealthy people in high taxed states like New York and California may see a small increase if their property taxes or state income taxes are above $10,000 a year. Perhaps, there are some upper-middle-class people who own enormous homes (remember the sub-prime mortgage crisis) in high tax blue states. Still, very few people pay a property tax or state income tax that high. Besides, the federal income tax cuts will offset much of it.

The fact is that an estimated 80% to 90% of Americans will see a tax cut. About 5% of Americans, people with over $10,000 in property or state income taxes, will see a tax increase.

The left-wing media is straight up lying about this bill. Make no mistake about it: they wouldn’t lie to this extent if the POTUS was Mitt Romney or Marco Rubio. This is Trump’s biggest accomplishment yet, and the left-wing media wants it to be as unpopular as humanly possible.

Almost every day, Trump tweets something stupid and pisses them off. This creates hysteria. The anger accumulates over time. This winter, we have seen many journalists, such as ABC’s Brian Ross and CNN’s Manu Raju, screw up stories bigly. It’s extremely unusual for some many elite journalists to screw up so many big stories in such a small time period.

The screw-ups are growing because they are getting fatigued. They are tired and angry, which leads to mistakes, which is literal fake news. This feeds right into Trump’s narrative. 

Now, the left-wing media is straight up lying about the tax cuts to prevent Trump’s approval rating from improving.

This will backfire, BIGLY!

When filing their taxes in the winter or spring (before April 15, 2018), the American people will notice the tax brackets are lower and various new deductions. They will keep more of their own money and they will get more in tax refunds. They will notice!


People will recognize that the left-wing media lied to them. This will reduce the media’s credibility.

Talk about fake news!
