On “Morning Edition”.
NPR Reporter: “…if it weren’t for the “Alternative Minimum Tax”, Trump would have paid a net tax rate of 3%”.
NPR Anchor: “Right – but there was an alternative minimum tax, and he paid a net rate of about 25% – considerably higher than Barack Obama and double what Bernie Sanders paid. So why the pointless “what if?” You’re “reporting” a complete nothingburger, here.”
(UPDATE: The anchor never said any of that. It was just a dream. The “reporter’s” line is pretty accurate, though).
