Part 2 of “The Donald Trump Tax.“

Crocodile tears from high-net-worth individuals is a sign that they don’t pay enough taxes. Behavior like whining, pissing, moaning, and yelling out “HEY NO FAIR!” ruins the “Masters of the Universe” vibe that the self-proclaimed “Masters of the Universe” seem to be aiming for. And…wait for it…a tax increase might be just the thing that they need.
The rich folks who take advantage of passive-income generation get creepy when it comes to their sense of worth. If anything, they need to pay more taxes just because they believe their own bullshit wayyyy too deeply.
