This freakin’ guy.
Any jagoff who claims he’s proud to pay 40 cents of every dollar he makes in taxes is either a complete moron or a total liar.
Perhaps in Obama’s case we should learn to embrace the power of ‘and.’
Look at this mess:

Did Team Biden really think bringing in Obama was a good idea?
I don't know about now, but as President he never paid that high an effective tax rate.
And tax rates today ARE LOWER. https://t.co/EK2tLEO9t7

BUT HE’S PROUD TO PAY IT!
Last public returns.
"The Obamas paid $81,472 in total tax. The President’s effective federal income tax rate is 18.7 percent."https://t.co/EmVohJLaYg

Now, this was five years ago and it’s absolutely possible that magically Obama started paying more even though tax rates dropped A LOT, especially for those evil rich 1%rs buying homes in Martha’s Vineyard, but hey … no one has ever accused Obama of being overly honest.
Yeah, we said that twice.
