Donald Trump is having a meltdown over at Truth Social after the Supreme Court ruled that the former President will have to hand over his tax returns to a House committee that has been seeking them. There are many reasons to shame the Supreme Court (Hi, Ginni Thomas!), but forcing Trump to keep one of his campaign promises is not one of them.

"Why would anybody be surprised that the Supreme Court has ruled against me, they always do! It is unprecedented to be handing over Tax Returns, & it creates terrible precedent for future Presidents," Lumpy wrote. "Has Joe Biden paid taxes on all of the money he made illegally from Hunter & beyond. The Supreme Court has lost its honor, prestige, and standing, & has become nothing more than a political body, with our Country paying the price. They refused to even look at the Election Hoax of 2020. Shame on them!"

In a separate post, Trump wrote, "In the Supreme Court, the President of the United States does not have "standing" over his own election, how ridiculous?"

Joe Biden released 22 years' worth of tax returns. The President does not have to release his tax returns publicly; however, every President since Richard Nixon has voluntarily published their returns. And Lumpy promised to do so.

He just went back to Truth Social to scream at the world again about the SCOTUS.

"The Supreme Court of the United States has the lowest Approval Rating in its long and storied history," he wrote. "No wonder - There are leaks and they can’t find the leaker (which is easy to do!), they are petrified of the Radical Left Maniacs (Democrats) who are destroying our Country, are unwilling to make bold, courageous, and proper decisions on Rigged and Stolen Elections, and are always wanting to be Politically Correct instead of doing what is BEST for the USA. We need Strength & Wisdom, NOW!"

Trump's bootlickers are in panic mode over the returns. Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch is amplifying false information. I know that surprises you. Hillary Clinton released 8 years of tax returns. Barack Obama released 11 years' worth of returns.

His predecessors have released theirs, but Trump is the persecuted one.
