Krauthammer’s Take: Asking About Trump’s Taxes Is Hardly Scandalous this Campaign Season

In a political season already notorious for its “low tactics,” it’s odd “everybody is scandalized” Mitt Romney asked Donald Trump to produce his tax returns, Charles Krauthammer said tonight.

“The tax issue is always a low road, a low tactic,” Krauthammer said on Thursday’s Special Report. “But this is a year in which it’s been 100 percent low tactics and low road.”

“What you can say, purely as a purely political analysis on the outside, it puts him on the defensive for a day and it changes the narrative,” he continued. “If you are a Trump or a Cruz and you’re the campaign manager, that’s what you want.”
