Promising Stuff You Can’t Produce Is A Definition Of Losing

For those who don’t frequent her show you should know that Maddow tried to boost her ratings by telling people that she had a scoop. She has the first couple of pages of Donald Trump’s 1040 tax returns – from 2005.

Yawn.

It doesn’t seem to make any difference that it is a felony violation to reveal someone else’s tax returns without permission. No, laws don’t apply to left-wing television people.

David Gregory produced a 30-round AR magazine on his TV show even though they are illegal where the show was taped. Nothing happened to him.

Maddow must not have read what she had because what she showed her viewer is that Trump paid a lot of taxes that year. Thirty-eight million dollars in taxes on an income of $150 million is a lot.

She spent most of her show building suspense before she revealed what she had illegally obtained and she illegally shared it.

Slate says, “Rachel Maddow Turned a Scoop on Donald Trump’s Taxes Into a Cynical, Self-Defeating Spectacle”

That’s kind.

“Rachel Maddow’s career committed suicide live on national TV tonight”

The unattractive, incompetent Rachel Maddow

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.”

You don’t have to do anything to people like Maddow. They volunteer to do it to themselves.

    Why is it that being a leftist means being an unattractive, vacuous, uninformed, twit like Madcow. This is the political group that thinks those in flyover country are rubes who have to be spoon fed information because we are too stupid to know what is good for us.

  2. R.D. Walker says:

    This was abject jackassery on the part of Maddow and MSNBC. Stupid, pointless and maybe illegal.

    That said, Trump should absolutely, positively release his tax returns. During the campaign he said he would do it. All previous presidents have done it. Not doing it creates the impression he has something to hide. He is failing to follow through with “doing what he said he would do” by not doing it.

    None of that excuses the stupidity of MSNBC.

  3. R.D. Walker says:

    The page that Maddow released had “CLIENT COPY” stamped on it in the corner. That would lead one to conclude the client – Trump – leaked it. It is a pretty innocuous couple of pages. If he wanted to look like a victim of the media AND a dutiful tax-paying American citizen, it would make sense that he leak these two pages.

    If Trump released it, he played Maddow like a puppet.

    “Clever Girl.”

    Robert Muldoon, referring to Rachel Maddow a cold-blooded reptile.
