Some hearsay about Donald Trump

I happen to have spent a significant amount of time in poker rooms in my life. This has led to a variety of, let’s say interesting, conversations and interactions, but given that the Trump/Russia scandal is coming to fruition, I felt moved to make a note of this story about Donald Trump that I overheard from the winter of 2015-2016, when his campaign existed, but was still primarily perceived as a humorous sideshow.

(One is more inclined to believe a story about Donald Trump to be true when overhead in a poker room than in most other places that are accessible to ‘common folk’.)


The story is that Donald Trump was being asked about his tax returns.

The question was: did he cheat on them?

Donald’s answer was reportedly, to the best of my recollection:

“Of course! I cheat at golf, I cheat on my wives, of course I cheat on my taxes!”


It felt like a true story, not least because I was in a reasonably upscale poker room, where that sort of thing would be treated as funny.
