Trump's Taxes and Rachel Maddow's Failure

Douglas V. Gibbs


At 7:36 p.m. Tuesday, Rachel Maddow tweeted, “BREAKING: We've got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC. (Seriously),” sending the internet into a frenzy of theorizing. Did Maddow have Donald Trump’s tax returns or just one of the Trumps’ tax returns? Could this be it, the tax return that would bring down the Donald? If this was it, why wasn't MSNBC cutting into its programming, instead of running a countdown clock to Maddow’s show? By 8:24, Maddow was tweeting that the tax return in question was Donald Trump’s 1040 from 2005. By 8:30, still half an hour before Maddow started airing, the White House had responded to the MSNBC report, saying that Trump had paid $38 million on income of $150 million that year. An hour later, about 20 minutes after The Rachel Maddow Show started, Maddow would confirm these numbers, turning her big scoop about Donald Trump’s long-missing tax returns into a cautionary tale about overhype. Rachel Maddow, you played yourself—and us too.

Drudge poked the Democrats a little more in the eye...

TRUMP PAID HIGHER TAX RATE [25%] THAN MSNBC COMCAST [24%]... MUCH HIGHER THAN OBAMA [19%]... AND BERNIE [13%]!
$38M ON $150M...
CNBC TURNS ON SISTER NETWORK...
RACHEL VEERS OFF COURSE...
QUEST FOR RATINGS...

The Liberal Left is grasping for anything they can, trying to do whatever it takes to bring down "The Donald"...and each time they do it, they prove how he is not who they say he is, and that they are exactly what conservatives say they are - childish, temper-tantrum throwing, deceptive liars who are out to destroy anyone who dares to disagree with them.

As for Rachel Maddow's failed tax return attack? She blames the viewers for it.

With MSNBC having already such a small amount of viewers, is it such a good idea then to alienate them, dupe them, and point fingers at them?
