On the heels of MSNBC liberal Rachel Maddow’s “nothingburger” of an announcement, revealing that President Donald Trump is a taxpaying citizen, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared on Fox News to point out a couple of important facts.
First, whoever stole/acquired Donald Trump’s tax return likely did so illegally and should therefore face a stiff punishment.
Secondly, how big of a hypocrite is Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT)? Pretty stinking HUGE. Sanders is constantly talking about redistributing wealth to the less fortunate but when push comes to shove the man pays a fairly low tax rate for someone who owns 3 houses.

OUCH! Got ’em! But seriously, Senator Paul isn’t wrong here. For all of their talk about ‘fair share’ and ‘spreading the wealth,’ liberals seem to be more of a “do as I say not as I do” crowd. If Sanders and other socialists truly believe that the tax rate should be much higher and that the wealthy should be paying more into the government… why do they need to wait for the government to force them to do it? If they truly believe what they say they believe, shouldn’t they be sending more of their own money into the government voluntarily?
Liberals are complete hypocrites when it comes to funding the government.
