Donald Trump Jr. was talking about the dishonesty in the media during a Helena, Montana rally, when a heckler tried to disrupt his comments. The heckler didn’t upset the president’s son, however. Instead, the man’s comments seemed to please Trump Jr., as they gave him an opportunity to say some positive things about his father.
Trump Jr. was at the rally to support businessman Greg Gianforte, the Republican seeking to take Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s vacated seat. Gianforte is battling Democrat Rob Quist in a special election for the House seat, and currently leads Quist by 15 points.
While Trump Jr. was speaking, a man yelled, “What about your dad’s taxes? I want to see his taxes!”
Trump Jr. actually smiled as he responded, “I think [MSNBC host] Rachel Maddow released something that showed he made $150 million bucks and paid $45 million in taxes.”
Trump Jr. went on to say the 2005 returns released by Maddow demonstrated that Donald Trump had paid a higher tax rate than either Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) or former President Barrack Obama.
Trump Jr. also said he had “actually thanked” Maddow for the incident.
As the crowd applauded in support of Trump Jr.’s comments, he threw in, “So guess what. You can do it all. You can be successful [and] you can pay your taxes. Thank you for the intro!”
