  1. I guess after being thoroughly embarrassed a few years ago when we were shown Uncle Joe didn’t contribute to charity other than a few pairs of used intergatkes, he decided to give something more substantial this year.

  2. What about all of those personal vacations and trips the Obummer family took at the expense of the taxpayers? He and his family spent millions of taxpayer dollars during 2013 for their personal benefit with no gain to the American public.
    THAT’S A GIFT and gifts of value are reportable and taxable. If Joe Public neglected to report the gift Joe Public would be accused of tax fraud, which is a felony.
    What makes that Dudley do it all wrong and his mob so special that he can circumvent the law of the land?
