Yawn. This should not be a big deal at all.

And this is a good sign that the left needs to slow their roll on trying to establish a norm of making politicians make their tax returns public. They're going to end up disappointed.
Wasn't that norm established through 40 years of precedent?
I only remember it becoming an issue in 2012 when Romney got pestered about it.

In any case, I really don't give a flying fuck how much wealth any politician has.

Politicians are not your friends nor your comrades.

How dare you try to dispell the claim that Cocaine Mitch made his money the honest way - off of cocaine trafficing.

Nor do I. It's not really about that, though.

"You've mentioned Girls Can Tell, you've been talking about how it's your favorite album; and you said, I think last night in Iowa, and some people are surprised that you say that. I'm wondering what one or two of your most favorite Spoon songs are and why?"

"Well, I wouldn't want to get into it, because to me that's very personal, you know, when I talk about Girls Can Tell, it's very personal, so I don't want to get into verses---"

"There's no song that means a lot to you that you think about or cite?"

"Girls Can Tell means a lot to me, but I don't want to get into specifics."

"Even to cite a song that you like?"

"No, I don't want to do that."

"Are you a Kill the Moonlight guy or a Gimme Fiction guy?"

"Uh....probably...equal. I think it's just an incredible...the whole...band...is an incredible...I joke, very much so, they always hold up Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain, I say, 'My second favorite album of all time.'"

He’s the breakout candidate Beto wanted to be. Every other candidate in the field right now should at least be thinking about him as a Vice President.

Saying Trump is al-qaeda’s big brother is as stupid as Trump saying Obama was the founder of ISIS. I’m hoping to elect a grown up next time around.
