I think –. If you need proof of that, he unveiled the tax plan this week. I don’t have time to go into the details. Just suffice it to say, the wealthiest people in America are finally going to be catching a break, ladies and gentlemen. Isn’t that awesome? Tax plan? What a charitable word for it. It was one page, with no math. I’m not kidding. That’s the tax plan. That’s not a tax plan. That’s a resume for a manager at Chuck E. Cheese. You know what they said? They said, well, it’s rough. Rough? I mean, there’s rough, and then, this is so rough it needs a safe word.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett Continue reading

They’re never going to put the real codes in there for him.” After host Chris Hayes said that he roots for Trump to “handle the North Korea situation well.” Moore responded, “I don’t know if I agree with that, because…it’s like rooting for a 6-year-old who suddenly swiped dad’s car and figured out how to take it down the road. I’m not rooting for the 6-year-old to get on the highway and drive that car. I want the 6-year-old off the highway.” Hayes stated he’d like to avoid nuclear war. Moore countered that “you’ve got the wrong person.” He added, “[O]ur only hope is that, please, Pentagon, if you’re watching, the football, the nuclear football that his aide carries around in that briefcase with the nuclear codes, I’m guessing they don’t actually have the real codes in there. They’re never going to put the real codes in there for him.” Hayes Continue reading
