After her embarrassing disaster in releasing Trump’s tax returns, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday where she admitted there was no bombshell in the Trump tax returns before quickly shifting the attention back to Russia in an attempt to divert all the negative attention she is getting onto President Trump.
The Wrap reported:
“Was there a huge, damning bombshell in these tax returns? No. The bombshell here is that some of his tax returns were made public for the first time when he’s been trying so hard to keep them secret,” Maddow told Fallon…
…“The reason you want any president’s tax returns is because you want to know if he’s beholden to anybody,” Maddow said. “You want to know if he might be acting as president with divided loyalties.”
Shortly after making these statements Maddow quickly diverted back the Trump/Russia conspiracy which is quickly starting to fall apart.
Perhaps the best part of Maddow’s disaster in releasing Trump’s taxes is the fact that this will stick with her for the rest of her career.
The fact that even liberals mocked Maddow over the debacle is strong evidence to indicate that this incident will not be forgotten.
In what was a desperate bid for attention Maddow sought to take a swipe a President Trump and ended up giving herself a permanent black eye.
