Donald Trump has been notoriously unwilling to release his tax returns, despite the almost 40-year history of presidential candidates doing this. When Vice President Joe Biden dropped by The Tonight Show, he made it clear just how much of a problem this is.
When Fallon asked Biden about the debates, Biden took a moment to cross his heart before speaking. “Bless me Father, for I’m about to sin,” he said. Biden’s been in his fair share of debates, including one against Sarah Palin in 2008, but Biden was still somewhat shocked by what he saw on display Monday night. “I’ve never seen anything like that,” the veep said. “I’ve never seen anyone who knew as few facts.”
Biden then moved on to discussing Trump’s belief in his business acumen, especially when it comes to things like rooting for the housing crisis. “That’s not business, that’s callous,” Biden said. As for Trump claiming that he doesn’t pay taxes because he’s “smart,” Biden responded by asking, “What does that make the rest of us? Suckers?”
Biden, whom many wanted to run this year, finished off the rant by saying that Trump should simply “pay his fair share.” As the interview wrapped up, Biden explained that everyone was still looking for the ideal candidate. He also revealed that he knew how to become the ideal candidate. “Announce you’re not running for president,” he joked.
