Ann Coulter says Trump is not 'smart' for not paying 10 years tax, Internet says 'welcome to the resistance'

'I've paid nearly 50% of my income in taxes, year after year, and any system that allows billionaires to pay ZERO is unspeakable corrupt. How about changing it, Democrats?' Coulter tweeted

Conservative pundit and author Ann Coulter called Republicans out for their support for President Donald Trump even after a report revealed that the POTUS had failed to pay income tax for the last 10 years. Her attack against the supporters of the very political party that she advocated for left many of her social media followers in disbelief.

"I don't think the conservative take on @realDonaldTrump paying no taxes should be: BECAUSE HE'S SMART! I've paid nearly 50% of my income in taxes, year after year, and any system that allows billionaires to pay ZERO is unspeakable corrupt. How about changing it, Democrats?" Coulter tweeted.



 

Her post came after the New York Times obtained Trump's tax returns for the last two decades which showed that in 2016 and 2017, he paid only $750 in federal taxes despite claiming to be a billionaire. The reason cited by his businesses for not paying taxes was that his businesses incurred major losses and "he reported losing much more money than he made," the NYT report read. 

Coulter, whose tweets are generally in favor of conservatives, took her followers by surprise when she wrote the post appearing to support liberals on Tuesday, September 29. While some thought that her account had been hacked, others felt that Coulter might be turning into a Democrat.

"Who are you and what have you done with the real Ann Coulter" one user wrote while another said, "Am I hallucinating!?!" A third commented, "You are going to love what Bernie Sanders and AOC has to say about this! Welcome to the resistance!" A user remarked, "I think Ann Coulter just endorsed Joe Biden." Another exclaimed, "She’s been hacked!"



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

It was even more confusing for the liberals who were left wondering why they were suddenly agreeing with Coulter. "I actually agree with Ann Coulter. This must be the equivalent of 'crossing the streams' from Ghostbusters," one said while another wrote, "She’s not wrong. WE MUST CHANGE! This is a no brainer! The elderly on social security should not pay more then The President of the United States. War vets and teachers should not pay more then a millionaire."

Another user commented, "Much as it pains me to write these words, 'I agree with Ann Coulter!' Of course, for the Democrats to have the power to change tax law they have to take the Senate, keep the House, and take the Presidency. Is this an endorsement of a Democratic sweep, Ann?" A user said, "Holy hell I agree with @AnnCoulter."



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

Others questioned why Coulter was asking Democrats to change the tax structure. "Why do we always have to clean up your messes???? The banking crisis--ect. ect. For once I like to see a Republican actually do something for our country instead of always TAKING from us tax payers," one said while another wrote, "1. I doubt you are paying 50% tax 2. last tax law was passed by GOP which gave huge tax break to the rich and corps and pounded the deficit for a trillion dollars 3. GOP controls the legislative agenda. If GOP have the power to stack courts during an election, they can fix taxes."

A user asked, "How about Republicans change it since they control the Senate and the presidency?" Another remarked, "You put a 'billionaire' who surrounded himself with billionaires to run the system that made them billionaires. I'd say you're not too smart. If you want the system to change, vote for @JoeBiden. #TrumpIsBrokeAF #TrumpIsNotABillionaire."
