Ever since President Donald Trump took office, there's been a constant buzz surrounding his refusal to release his tax returns. Many have speculated the documents would prove his financial relations with Russia. Considering how Trump just fired FBI Director James Comey while being investigated for his alleged Russian ties, we wouldn't be too surprised if that's the real reason he won't release his returns.
In an attempt to quell the public's doubts, Trump's lawyers addressed the situation in a letter. They explained how after reviewing the last 10 years of his tax returns, they did not show "any income of any type from Russian sources," with few exceptions, according to the Associated Press. As the lawyers didn't release copies of his returns to the AP, these conclusions couldn't be verified.

So wait, let's rewind . . . there are "few exceptions" involved here, apparently? That sounds like a bit of a red flag. When news of this wishy-washy explanation broke on social media, people couldn't help but troll it, and thus the internet's latest Trump-related meme was born.

It's truly about time the Trump administration and team realize that the internet will turn any slight flub into a meme.
