Mike Tyson: I Was Better Off under Bush and Reagan


Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, who is currently trying to pay off millions of dollars in back taxes, said that he did better under recent Republican administrations than the current one. “My wife, my family, I got one of the biggest liberal families in the world, but I had more money when Bush and Reagan was president,” Tyson told Brian Kilmeade on Fox & Friends this morning. “I shouldn’t have said that, my wife is going to kill me for that,” he laughed.

Kilmeade asked him about how Republican presidents “had this idea that you should keep your money.” Tyson replied, “Yeah, I like that one. I’m going to work on that one, too, with this Obama administration.”

He added that he hopes “this Obamacare helps us keep some money.”
