    Default Simple points for 2020

    Sometimes in life, simple is good, as it's easily understood.

    Two things the Democratic candidate can point to, that I believe would be hard to not understand, would be:

    in '16, he promised he would release his taxes. Not only has he failed to do so, he's fought them being released at every turn, in every way he can think of.

    He also promised, but never produced, proof his wife is here legally.


    I wonder if these two simple, direct points would cost him any votes. They should, but would they?
    How do we form a mutiny? Our new captain is navigating poorly.

    They would if words still worked.

    There must be a word for this kind of Christianity. I just don’t get it.

    Several words, most of them forbidden here. But this isn't new with Trump; there's a long tradition of this kind of nonsense

    I envision a debate where, whomever the Democratic candidate is, says, "I've released 'x' number of years of my taxes. You've released non of yours, even though you promised you would. You claim you can't release them because you are under audit, but that's not true. Being under audit, if you really are does not prevent you from releasing taxes. So, what are you hiding?"

    How does he respond? He's on record promising to release his taxes. His hard core base may not care, but is all his base hard core?

    Simple. The lying cheeto sandwich says, "I can't release them because I'm under audit." And his gullible cheeto sandwich base will eat it up.
