But see, we're not talking about what he did with the money that he kept. We're talking about his tax rate.
He left 1.5 million out of his deductions because he wanted to artificially raise his tax rate, as people would be watching this time around.
And good for him that he's charitable. Never said the guy was a bad man. Just disagree with his politics. But even if we did decide to speak about where his charitable donations went, we'd likely have to talk about the Church of Latter Day Saints.
