The Morning Joe panel was in a state of bemusement Tuesday morning when it was reported that Warren Buffett helped grease the deal that landed Burger King popular Canadian coffee chain Tim Horton’s, which would allow BK to pay the lower Canadian corporate tax rate of 15 percent, instead of the American rate of 35 percent.
The Left paraded Buffett around the country in 2012 as a "good billionaire" with his comments that wealthier Americans should pay higher taxes.

Buffett was quoted in May for critiquing businesses for the same tax inversion deal he just financed. The look on Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough’s faces were akin to the look your kids make when they learn that the mall Santa Claus is, in fact, not the real Santa and once did time at county.
Let it be known that Mike Barnicle does not need Whoppers, despite looking like he enjoyed one or two back in his day.
