We have always had tax day protests in mid April. The theme has always been a complaint against excessive taxes taking 5 or 6 month’s worth of the average person’s income.
Not so with the looney resist Trump nuts. They don’t mind the taxes. They just want Trump to release his tax returns. They’re certain they can find terrible illegal things inside through their famous objective analysis and interpretation.
He’s hiding something they say. We’ll impeach him for it they say. He must have committed crimes they say. Show us the returns they cry.
The proper response to such desperate lunacy: You will find copies of Trump’s tax returns in the same place intrepid reporters found Obama’s records.
More Than 70 Liberal Groups Partnered for Anti-Trump Tax Day Protests
Many groups behind constant protests against Trump

A coalition of more than 70 liberal groups coordinated to plan nationwide protests demanding President Donald Trump release his tax returns.
The April 15 protests drew thousands of people in Washington, D.C. ‘Local protests’ took place in 44 states, with international protests in Germany, Japan, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.
The protests were organized through a website called TaxMarch.org. The site claims the demonstrations were the result of ordinary Americans, community organizers, advocates, and “people from all walks of life and all backgrounds” holding Trump, his administration, and Congress accountable.
The Tax March’s executive committee includes individuals who have already been involved with a number of Trump protests around the country.
Anna Chu, who sits on the Tax March’s executive committee, is the vice president for income security and education at the National Women’s Law Center, a D.C.-based advocacy group. Chu previously worked for the Center for American Progress Action Fund, the advocacy arm of a liberal think tank founded by Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager John Podesta. Before that, Chu was a policy director for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and a policy adviser for the House Democratic Caucus.
Ezra Levin, a cofounder and executive director of Indivisible, a D.C-based group that works with activists to resist the Trump agenda at the state level, also sits on the group’s executive committee.
Indivisible is closely connected to powerhouse liberal groups that have mapped out protests against Trump and Republican politicians.
The group published a guide for activists that is promoted by other liberal groups, including the Town Hall Project, the “organizing hub” of town hall protests against Republican politicians. The Town Hall Project recently announced a partnership for anti-Trump events with the Center for American Progress Action Fund. The Town Hall Project uses an online organizing platform from the Action Network, a group located at the same address as other groups involved in the anti-Trump Tax Day protests such as Color of Change, a union organizing group.
More than 70 progressive groups were involved in the Tax Day protests, including Media Matters for America, an organization run by longtime Clinton ally David Brock, and Demos, a George Soros-funded group chaired by the daughter of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.).
