To the Editor:
As one who has often been accused by family and friends as having “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” I am finally hopeful that I may be cured of my disease — by having Trump extracted from my head and thrown into jail.
Trump often reminds me of another figure from a while back, Al Capone. Both flamboyant, outrageous, larger than life, and reveling in attention (fans at baseball games would cheer Capone when he showed up).
Capone had a mansion in Florida too, and was the target of a federal government which was “out to get him.” Well, finally they did, for tax evasion, which looks like the way they’re going to get Trump, as soon as the New York evidence is evaluated by the Internal Revenue Service.
Although auditing someone like him is extremely complicated, I think this statistic should erase any pity you might have for the man: In 2016, Trump paid only $750 in federal income tax, and in 2017, another $750.
