Back in January, David Tepper was absolutely effusive about the greater glories of the Trump tax heist. This may have come as a surprise, given the somewhat less enthusiastic things he’s had to say about the president in the past, but really shouldn’t have: David Tepper is, after all, the sort of unconscionably rich guy tax reform was written to enrich, and he hates taxes enough to live in Florida. Still, in case you fear Tepper had gone the full MAGA, he’s here to dispel the notion—now that Jerry Jones can’t veto his membership in the world’s most exclusive club.
“It’s the biggest pile of bull-dingy ever. These are some of the most patriotic people and best people. These are great young men,” Tepper told CNBC. “It just makes me so aggravated and angry. OK? It’s just wrong. It’s just dead wrong….”
Tepper responded that there’s “a red-headed guy in D.C. that likes to talk about it. But I don’t want to mention his name right now….”
“It’s what you do in the community, it’s what you do out there. And we have a lot of good guys. The players are good guys, who do a lot of things out there,” Tepper told CNBC.
