MUCH ADO ABOUT TAXES

THE STORY

Last night, a couple of pages from President Trump’s 2005 federal tax returns were released.

WHY IS THIS A BIG DEAL?

Because Trump was the first presidential candidate in decades not to release his tax returns. There’s no law saying that this has to happen. But it’s been a ritual since the ’70s, so that voters can see if candidates have any financial ties that could compromise their role as prez. During the campaign, Trump said he couldn’t release his taxes because he was being audited by the IRS - but he’d do it ASAP. After he was elected, the White House said ‘actually, we’re not releasing them.’ These ’05 returns were leaked to a journalist, and then confirmed by the White House last night before the journalist appeared on MSNBC to talk about them.

SO...WHAT’S IN THE TAX RETURNS?

In ’05, Trump made more than $150 million in income, wrote off more than $100 million in business losses, and paid $38 million in federal taxes. That’s a tax rate of 25%, thanks to an IRS rule called the “alternative minimum tax” that makes sure wealthy people don’t use deductions and credits to get out of paying taxes.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

The White House says the docs are legit and that publishing them is “illegal.” Supporters say this shows that Trump is a successful businessman who pays a lot in taxes. Critics say Trump needs to release his full tax history so people can see not just how much money he has, but where it’s coming from.

Expect these docs to lead to a renewed push for Trump to release more info. And in other things people are curious about, FBI Director James Comey might tell Congress today whether or not the FBI’s investigating ties between Russia and Trump’s campaign.

REPEAT AFTER ME...

WHAT TO SAY WHEN THE OFFICE CAN’T DECIDE WHAT TO ORDER FOR TEAM LUNCH...

Let’s put it to a vote. Today, the Netherlands heads to the polls in an election that’s going to act like a thermometer to see if the EU’s caught the ‘populism’ bug. Populism: when people are so sick and tired with ‘the elites’ in charge they rise up against them - often because of concerns about things like job security and immigration. See: Brexit, President Trump’s election win. In recent years, the Netherlands - along with other EU countries - has rolled out the welcome mat to more than a million refugees and migrants from places like Syria. And that’s led to a lot of anti-immigrant feelings. Cue an anti-immigrant, anti-Islam, anti-EU party gaining steam against the current liberal prime minister’s party. This election will decide which party gets the most seats in parliament. It’ll be the opening previews for elections in France and Germany - where populism’s also on the rise - later this year. The Dutch results could come in as early as tonight.

WHAT TO SAY WHEN YOU CATCH YOUR CO-WORKER TRYING TO SNEAK A LOOK AT YOUR EMAILS…

Busted. Yesterday, the Justice Department charged a group of former and current Navy officials with corruption. This has to do with a years-long bribery scandal that centers around a Singapore-based defense contractor named Leonard Francis aka “Fat Leonard.” Real nickname. Back in 2015, Francis said ‘guilty’ to bribing Navy officials in exchange for favorable treatment for his business. He overcharged for services and cheated the Navy out of tens of millions of dollars. Almost 20 Navy officials have already been charged. In this latest round of charges, the Justice Dept says Francis organized “Wolf of Wall Street”-style sex parties for nine officials - including an admiral - and paid for their luxury hotel stays abroad. Meanwhile, the Marines are also paging Olivia Pope. Yesterday, their top general had an awkward coffee date with the Senate Armed Services Committee. Earlier this month, it came out that Marines had been posting nude photos of their female co-workers and others on a private Facebook group with tens of thousands of members. The Senate wants to know what the Marines plan to do about it. Answer: they’re still trying to figure out who’s responsible and how the photos were obtained. But the general said he’s committed to getting “rid of this perversion of our culture.” Good plan.

WHAT TO SAY TO YOUR FRIEND WHO’S READY TO PUT HER COLD-WEATHER CLOTHES IN STORAGE...

Maybe wait a bit. Yesterday, winter said ‘I’m still heeeere’ and hit parts of the Northeast with up to two feet of snow. More than 6,000 flights were canceled, thousands of schools put up ‘we’re closed’ signs, and hundreds of thousands of homes lost power. Note: spring officially starts next week. Winter Storm Stella did not get the memo.

Don’t let this kill your vibes.

SKIMM SLEEP

Synapses: The connections between neurons (nerve cells) in our brains. They drive chemical signals where they need to go. Synapses work really hard all day. When you sleep, they slow down and put their feet up. Some scientists think this happens so we forget memories from the day that aren’t super important, and make room for the BFD ones coming later. Help a synapse out. Get a good mattress. We like this one. Get it...at a little discount. And this foundation to go with it.

NO EXCUSES: IMMIGRATION

This week is about pulling the Skimm’tionary off the shelf and getting read-in on key terms around the immigration debate in America. Next up…

L-1 visa: Lets a worker at a foreign company transfer to a branch or affiliate in the US. The employee has to be kinda a big deal - aka they have to be an executive, manager, or have a special skill set.
