When M was a baby, household finances were tight enough that I knew where every dollar had to go. I distinctly recall getting a raise at work, and celebrating by buying M his first pair of shoes. He started to walk just a few weeks later, and he actually managed to wear out those shoes by about the same time he outgrew them, because they were the only shoes he had.
It is fairly galling to realize I most likely paid more in income taxes that year than Trump did. And I am fairly certain Trump was not wearing cheap velcro sneakers every single day.
