MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was the laughingstock of people on both sides of the political aisle Tuesday night when she announced she had an exclusive. She had an illegal copy of President Trump’s 2005 tax return. The left held its breath hoping for an impeachable offense, but as liberal commentator Van Jones said, it ended up being a great night for Trump!
Donald Trump trolled Maddow by preemptively releasing the 2005 return before her show aired. This stole her intended thunder. Even worse than that was the fact that Trump paid over $38 million in taxes that year. The left had been working off the assumption the president didn’t pay any taxes. They were left with egg on their faces as Trump paid over 25% of his 2005 income to the federal government.
Social media exploded in laughter. Geraldo Rivera had been the ultimate laughingstock for revelations gone wrong when he had a live airing of opening Al Capone’s vault that was a bust. Now, that top honor goes to Rachel Maddow.
Geraldo Rivera had the bottle he found in Al Capone’s vault. Rachel Maddow has two pages of Trump’s tax return that…

Mark Dice got into the Maddow mocking action too. In the video below, he details what a horrific night it was for Maddow. He even includes liberals conceding this point!
The big loser was Rachel Maddow. The only thing you can say about the return itself is that Trump paid a lot of taxes and maybe he should hire Bernie Sanders’s accountants. Trump is busy paying for all of Bernie’s free things.
In 2014 Bernie Sanders paid 13.5% in taxes. In 2005 Donald Trump paid 25.3% in taxes.

Maddow is too blinded by her liberal bias to understand real news. And her show certainly isn’t real news. It’s an outrage machine.
Share this if you think Rachel Maddow was the big loser last night!
