    Normal income, 1/100 of his. Taxes paid, 28-to-32 percent. Only in America.

    The twit wnow ants us to believe that he built his fortune from the ground up without any support from anyone. I guess the $1M in stock his daddy gave him and all the money he has stolen from Americans while firing them and bankrupting companies is something to be proud of?
    What a first class jerk this guy is! The more you talk and flip flop on everything you have ever stood for and believed and the more you want to pretend to be like "you people", the 47%, the unwashed masses the more you remind us you are a slimeball. Stop it! Stop it! New campaign slogan. Thanks non working wife. You finally said something funny.
    I wonder if the non working wife's plane was rigged to have to make an emergency landing to land some pity votes. Glad that she and everyone on board is okay, of course, but . . . . . . could it have been the smoke coming off the burning scrap of their campaign? Stop it! Stop it!
