Warren: Trump, Jeb’s ‘Ears Are Stuffed with Money’

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” while discussing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and Jeb Bush both endorsing closing tax loopholes for hedge fund managers, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said their “ears are stuffed with money.”

Host Jake Tapper asked, “What do you make of the fact that two of the leading Republican presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Jeb Bush, are now both endorsing closing the loophole when it comes to hedge fund managers, the carried interest loophole?”
Warren said, “It means that even when your ears are stuffed with money, you get a little sound that comes through. And that’s what’s happening here. It’s like, hello? Yeah, ah billionaires should not be paying taxes at a lower rate than teachers and firefighters. And that has even seeped through to a few of the rich guys on the other side. Stunner.”
