HA! Trump Releases 2005 Tax Info Before Rachel Maddow Does on MSNBC

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow sent out a tweet on Tuesday afternoon indicating that she had President Trump’s tax returns and that she would release them on her television program on Tuesday night.

President Trump decided to beat Maddow to the bunch by releasing information regarding his tax returns before the antagonistic news host could do so.

The New York Post reportedThe White House says President Donald Trump made more than $150 million in income in 2005 and paid $38 million in income taxes that year.

The acknowledgement came as MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said she has obtained part of Trump’s 2005 tax forms, and prepared to discuss the document on her Tuesday night show.

The records have become highly sought-after because Trump refused to release his returns during the campaign, breaking a decades-long tradition. He claimed he was under audit.

The White House pushed back pre-emptively Tuesday night, saying that publishing those returns would be illegal.

“You know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago,” the White House said in a statement.

Trump long insisted the American public wasn’t interested in his returns and said little could be learned from them. But Trump’s full returns would contain key details about things like his charitable giving and how much he made each year.

Rachel Maddow is obviously desperate to keep her ratings up and will do anything to prevent them from sinking. Sad.
