This is an instant classic. College students are asked what they think of Trump’s tax plan and they all say they don’t like it. Then they are asked about Trump’s specific plans but are told they are Bernie Sanders’ ideas. And they think they’re great!

Students Love Trump’s Tax Plan—When They’re Told It’s Sanders’ Plan
Students at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. expressed support for President Donald Trump’s tax reform plan—but only when they were told it was Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) tax plan instead.
Campus Reform, a conservative news site that focuses on higher education, interviewed multiple students who initially said they disagreed with Trump’s tax plan. The same students, however, proceeded to agree with details of the president’s proposal when they were masked as bullet points from Sanders’ plan.
Campus Reform media director Cabot Phillips interviewed students on camera, asking for their initial thoughts on Trump’s comprehensive tax reform plan.
“It’s better for the upper class than anyone else,” one student said.
“It’s probably not the most efficient nor beneficial to the general populace,” another student added.
Phillips then asked those same students about three separate parts of Trump’s tax reform plan, portraying them as pieces of Sanders’ “more compassionate alternative.”
