The White House has left MSNBC host Rachel Maddow looking like a blabbering fool by releasing President Donald Trump’s 2005 tax information before she could leak it.

Maddow announced more than an hour ago that she had acquired President Donald Trump’s tax information and hinted she would be sharing it on her show tonight.

Well, the show began. But more than half an hour in, Maddow still didn’t say anything that the White House hadn’t released what might as well have been an eternity ago.

When Maddow finally got around to dropping her “bombshell,” it turned out all she proved was that the President paid a boatload of taxes in 2005.

On her show, she said, “aside from the numbers being large, these pages are straightforward. He took a big write-down of $103 million. If you add up the lines for income he made over $150 million. Mazel Tov!”

As mentioned previously, the White House already released this information at least 20 minutes before Rachel Maddow got around to it.

They also released a statement slamming Maddow, saying “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.”

Watch a livestream of Rachel Maddow’s show below.

      Like most of the fake news losers on these channels, her day to be taken off the air will come. Hopefully this is it, but I doubt it.

      Nobody seems to go to prison, do they? I wonder why.

    Bwahaha! Geraldo Rivera must be having flashbacks. (Will it show my age if I confess I watched that historic letdown live?)

    • Ragnar__Danneskjold

      The vault?

      • THDisqus

        Yep. Best fail of all time. Intense build up, followed by …… well, nothing. That moment when that vault was cranked open! Poor Geraldo.

        • Sharon Dula

          That was the last time I ever watched a program that he is involved in! I really haven’t ever liked him, he is so arrogant!

        • tomhayward

          The only good part of that program was when they were doing filler stuff and shot off that genuine Tommy Gun. I learned those suckers were 50 cal, didn’t know that at the time, how monstrous (and hard to control) those things were.

        • midnightrider35000

          Wasn’t there a beer can from a later date in the vault? It kind of proved that it had been opened after the 30s. This was the last time I watched him also. I am not sure which came first, this or when he played a cocaine dealer and busted an idiot on live tv. The guy even said that he looked like geraldo and still went ahead with it. Smh. Funny thing is that I have worked with guy who was arrested’s brother and son in the late 90s on. How stupid can you be, to be set up by geraldo? Lmao

      • Syren123

        That was a lot of fun. He still soldiers on, tho, that Geraldo. 26 years later and he still has nothing, but opinionates as if he has everything.

        • Corey Gray

          Sorry, don’t take this wrong, since I’m also a conservative, and voted for Trump (lack of a better choice, though)..but you truly ARE a supporter, aren’t you? Right down to picking up his habit of creating new words on the spot! “Opinionates”…lol

          • Daryl T

            Sometimes, just to be funny, I create my own word but my family still knows exactly what I’m saying. Many on social pages, concerned more on spelling (to take away from topic or message) gets lost due to small details within. As long as we know what the person is saying/communicating isn’t that what’s important? If a resume, that’s another story. Opinion can also be used as a noun: opinionatedness
            It can also be used as an adverb: opinionatedly. But the message is clear, R. Maddow messed up. Can’t trust the liberal media.

          • Corey Gray

            I do it, too, but deliberately to be funny (in a dad joke kind of way)…wasn’t grammar naziing him, honestly thought it was funny as hell, whether deliberate or not.

        • tomhayward

          Did you ever see that segment where he was among this big group of demonstrating illegal mexicans, smiling as he always does when he is with those folks, and they were calling him names and booing him? He continued to attempt that dumb-azz smile. It was wonderful. Almost as good as the Baltimore hatred!

    • Bob Roberts

      I saw it live. Whorealdo was shown, like Madcow, to be a fool.

      • DEPLORABLE Grandma Susan

        Don’t forget the masterpiece that began his career. The expose he did on the horrible conditions of the Willowbrook State School. Didn’t want mental institutions brought up to date and improved, he wanted them all shut down. What a success he was!

        Now mental patients have so few beds, so little help, they are living on the streets everywhere.

        Thanks, Geraldo, you built that!

    • Corey Gray

      I’ve had no used for Whorealdo since he gave away troop movement and action plans, as well as current locations of troops, units, and supply lines, on live TV during Storm.

      He should have gone to jail then and there for treason…aid and succor to our enemies applies in PEACETIME…in wartime, it’s FAR more severe (in fact, honestly, the senior officer present probably would have walked on charges if he’d popped Herrera in the skull as soon as the first sentence was out of his mouth on that report…even if he had done it on live television. Could even be argued that all present officers who DIDN’T do so should be court-martialled, themselves…their job includes a requirement to kill their own soldiers in the field for such behaviors…no reason an embed is exempt from the same rules…as an embed, they are living with and as the soldiers, supposedly. Not to mention the fact that a treason charge is the only charge available where a civilian is subject to trial in a military court, conditionally.)

  • Cloud Strife

    Only 38 million, why doesn’t Rachel release his returns?

    • DaisyToo

      Madcow makes more than $7million per annum for being a liberal gay liar.

      • Lisa Blackstock

        where are her tax returns?

    • midnightrider35000

      Yes, let’s see her returns.

  • Ebenezer_Screwedja!
  • THDisqus

    My favorite part of this whole scenario is the fact that the White House released the information before Maddow’s broadcast. Somebody in that White House is brilliant. Scooped her scoop and laid out the breaking-the-law angle, all while controlling the narrative. What scandal did Maddow uncover? HE PAID TAXES. Lots of them. Too funny. I don’t usually like to see someone embarrassed, but I may have to make an exception in this case.

    • Pat Patrix

      My guess is it’s another Bannon play. This has been his strategy for Trump throughout the entire election. Don’t defend yourself against the ridiculous claims, once you go on the defensive you already look guilty. The Bannon strategy is to lean into the criticism. To tell them to put up or shut up. And it’s working over and over. They just don’t have anything other than “fake news” and it just keeps on backfiring.

      • Joe Nawabi

        oh my God you liberal retards are so pathetic. Whether he pays a lot or not it doesn’t matter to the Liberals, they will use anything to feed off of and spin it in a super negative way. Lord when the fuck are you going to fucking just base things on actual fact and not something so fucking subjective?

        • Dave Garry

          ^ I don’t think Pat is siding with the neolibs on this one. Read the post again…he/she is pointing how the media relies on fake news, which is backfiring again.

        • Pat Patrix

          The fuck are you even talking about you fucking moron? Did you reply to the wrong person or are you just an idiot?

          • Joe Nawabi

            Calm down dude I was referring to Maddow and didn’t see I replied using Pat’s link. My bad. Can I delete it?

          • Pat Patrix

            Haha, it’s fine. It was just so angry and so obviously had nothing to do with what I’d actually said that I was just baffled. Don’t worry about it.

          • Stacey

            Wow, perfect example of what utter shit republicans are. You people will even viciously attack someone else who’s as uptight and walking around with a stick up their ass just like them. But, you’re ugly, whiny, stupid people. It’s to be expected. “No problem man, I viciously attacked you for no reason because I’m desperate to be right even when I know I’m not”. “It proves I’m a pretend alpha-male when I attack someone for actually daring to say something to me”. Pathetic. Bet you run and call the cops if a woman dares stand up to you, and then lie about what happened. I’ve run into that too many times in my life. Tiny little men with low IQ’s that can’t handle “rejection”. Ha ha it’s fine-I just viciously attacked you because I have mental issues that cause me to be “conservative” in the first place. Bet you have one of those stupid red hats, too. Nothing says backwoods and uneducated like a Trump supporter. But then, your party convinced you people to brag about being uneducated. Imagine going along with that. Because education would prevent the constant stupidity coming out of your mouths.

            very good! Love it

    • Andrew Hows

      The only thing is, does publicly releasing the information before Maddow disclosed it mean she didn’t actually break the law, as she wasn’t disclosing anything that the person in question hadn’t already released into the public record?

      • Thomas Webb

        Whoever gave her that hair cut broke the law. Thats one ugly Bitch!

        • jeancoutu

          It’s a he..

          It is IT

      • Patricia

        That’s a very good question and one I would LOVE to see have to be answered, After they arrest her. LOL

      • Matt M

        So in another article.. I saw it was illegal for whoever to release it to her, but not for her to release as a “member of the press.”

        I wonder if Comey will try on this one or fold for the left like he did for Hilldog.

        • tomhayward

          Can I get a press card, have a little webcast show, and if someone stole her personal medical records, with say, some weird mental health issues on them, I am not held accountable for broadcasting that?

      • 96-06TSgt

        Hmm…maybe it does.

        She is helping more than hurting at this point. Better off keeping her out of trouble and keep her doing what she does best…discrediting the MSM and making them look like temper tantrum idiots.

        5D chess folks….5D chess.

      • Mickey Hollingshead

        So you wouldn’t mind if someone had your tax returns with all your personal info?

        • Matt M

          Between this and all the Russia stuff.. No wonder people don’t trust the press. Everyone who voted for him knew he was a super rich guy (how rich? Who cares) with widely held holdings including in other nations.

      • tomhayward

        Not really. That is like saying you stole money and gave it back, so you really didn’t steal it.

        Someone stole private information and she broadcast private information. Now, if she had commented on the fact that the administration released the information, and quoted that source and the information that was available, that is a different story.

    • Janet_GB13

      It really was a Don Rickles moment, wasn’t it? I’m ashamed to say I enjoyed it – but will defend myself by thinking that MadCow seems pretty impervious to everything.

    So… no Russian stuff listed in there huh? …

  • John Familiare

    Your tax return information is confidential. The IRS and your tax professional cannot disclose your tax information to anyone else without your explicit consent.

    • cruzisbest

      Exactly. Whoever leaked this information is guilty of a felony. Getting tired of holding my breath waiting for anyone on the Left to be held accountable for anything, but I’m holding out hope now that Sessions is AG.

  • Kym G

    There is no existing law that mandates Trump release his tax returns. Presidents, just like private citizens, have the legal right to keep their tax returns private. But it is breaking with 40 years of precedent. One law that does exist requires all ppresidents and vice presidents to be audited annually by the IRS. (The Washington Post) We already have 1995-2013 and we’ve learned he’s a very very successful businessman who is disgustingly wealthy… good enough for me!

    • DaisyToo

      What’s disgusting about earning a living?

      • pignutflatullate

        exactly why liberal commies are so against hm

    • Joshua Barry

      I honestly never cared about presidential candidates tax returns. Even when it was obama. It wasnt a concern of mine and still isnt

  • DaisyToo

    At 25%, Trump paid a higher rate than MSNBC’s 24% and Obama’s 19% from the same year.

    • Lisa Blackstock

      and Bernie Sanders who paid 13%

    who cares about his taxes. . . . if he is guilty of tax evasion that is the responsibility of the IRS at which point we would know about it. . . . Looking at the last 10 million years of his income is not only none of our business . . . it is completely irrelevant.

  • January

    Frankly I really don’t care about his taxes. But I do like that she looks like an idiot.

    • Mark

      As do all of the Liberal loons on Twitter who have been crowing all evening that they finally, FINALLY had Trump.

  • Ms_Fortune

    The paper she showed also has a stamp that says client copy.

    Trump is fucking with them.

  • Michael Slavin Sr.

    Tax returns; Tax returns are meaningless when looking at the big picture issues that plague our country and the world. Why?

    Would you trust any tax return from anyone running for office? With the chance of power hanging in the balance and the untold monies paid to those to make those returns palatable for public viewing, (as in the private sector) how factual could one ever expect them to be.

    Then why is it constantly brought up in political elections?

    For the very reason you saw last night, it is used as a wedge issue, especially for the side that has very few options in which to attack/counter attack their opponents.

    Bottom line? As long as there have been taxes (payroll started in 1913), the issue has been incorporated in the quivers of those with no arrows.

    • danimal09752

      It may be. The document she showed had client copy stamped on it. Means it came from Trump or his people….And then he released the same thing just before her show. Tells me he’s laughing in her face.

  • Dineen Yannelli

    I so can not stand her… For one thing she doesn’t shut up – Second thing she tries being so over dramatic – The only thing all her hype ever is is WRONG…. like even if he took all the swing states… I think she repeats things over and over to program these so called thoughts to register into the minds of the brain dead people that listen to her. I have no idea who would watch her. She is ANNOYING!!! Madcow just needs to SHUT UP.

  • Sup?

    So when is the dumb c__t gonna be prosecuted for releasing private info?

    It wouldn’t surprise me if they leaked it to MSNBC and then played them like fools, LOL.

    • danimal09752

      I’d almost be willing to bet they did. I mean they released them to the public all of what? 30 minutes prior to her going on air? And they did so because they knew she’d run her mouth. So they leaked it to her knowing she had nothing, released it themselves to take away her scoop….and then watched her make a fool of herself. I mean it’s win win. LOL

  • Lysaa1st

      All of the talk of making the rich pay their fair share, Bernie only pays 13% and Obama only pays 19%.

      And that’s after Bernie started advocating for a 90% tax rate.

    What an idiot. Nobody really cares what he pays in taxes anyway except the left wing nuts who think the sky is falling. That is the way it is in a capitalistic country so deal with it.

  • Donald Roessler

    Didn’t she read the papers before she went on TV ??

    • danimal09752

      She did. But they are above her intelligence level. So she read them…and figured she had him! Which makes it even funnier.

  • Corey Gray

    Guess she doesn’t do her taxes.
    DEDUCTIONS, dumbass. They reduce the listed taxable income. And are such things as loss of value in real estate, interest paid on mortgages, maintenance costs on already existent buildings, and many others.

    What this means, miss MadOx, is that if he made a $150 million “profit” initially, but paid out $30 mil in maintenance or repair costs, remodelling costs, or similar, and paid a million in interest on the loan, they DEDUCT $31 million from the base $150 million (making it $119 million), and then tax THAT at the applicable rate.

    That’s not a “write-down”, that’s the same damned deductions you take…but he’s got a lot more money tied up, larger bills to pay, so he’s paying more interest, and maintenance and upkeep costs are higher, as well as anything else that draws a deduction. And there’s nothing in the least dishonest about it.

    Considering he’s passed multiple IRS audits clean as a whistle, I’d even state I’m willing to bet he’s been more honest than you about his taxes….and I say it publicly…if you care to prove me wrong…ASK for an IRS audit, with pre-permission for them to publish the findings (not details, just whether or not you paid appropriately and only took legitimate deductions, and claimed no credits not actually due you), and publish their statement that you did or did not come out “clean” with no back taxes owed, no penalties, no late payments.

    Of course, we all know you’d never do this…just like most of us are pretty certain the REASON you wouldn’t is YOU know you’d be up on charges, or paying significant fines and back payments.

  • lonebear

    the thing with liberal 3rd wave whores like this is they have done too much rug munching and therefor her opinions dont really matter,

  • Diavolos

    So he got 150m by working his ass off, he paid 38m in taxes, that is a wooping 25,33% of his income.

    There are people being paid by the taxes and there are people paying taxes, he is one man and he contributed to the tax system more than the whole CNN crew together.

  • tttt9erfan

    I am making a YUGE exception and lmao about Maddow making an ass out of herself! The tears…they’re killin me…..heeheeee

  • Disproportional

    I like how NBC has removed the video because it destroy’s their entire Trump Tax Narrative.

  • HT

    It’s great watching CNN and MSNBC race each other to the bottom.

  • Elke Summer

    Gosh, when will these UNAMERICAN DUMDEMS realize that they’re trying to make a TRUE AMERICAN look bad, but it just won’t GEL!!

  • TheCerealKiller

    Did he break a law? Oh, that’s right. He followed the tax laws that our government passed into law. I think illegally reporting someone’s tax records is a bigger deal.

  • Acacia The Vet

    Sanders paid a 13% rate.I guess Donald paid his fair share.Right Bernie!

  • AverageJoe1987

    So with Obama only paying 19% and Bernie only paying 13%, when will MSNBC and the rest of the Fake News MSM demand the Dems pay their fair share?

  • CalUKGR

    FAKE NEWS from Maddow – why expect anything else?

  • James Payton

    Once we get all of his tax information that might show more than what you think. He has ties to Russian businessman also to Shady characters supporting the Revolutionary guard I myself want to see the taxes in full for the last 15 years

  • Lisa Hawks

    who cares about taxes that are over 10 yrs ago?

  • myddrinemrys

    The White House has left MSNBC host Rachel Maddow looking like a blabbering fool
    ————————————————–
    *doing best Kanye impersonation*

    I’mma let you finish, but Richard has been making himself look foolish for years. In fact, Mr. Maddow had THE best meltdown of the year when Trump was elected.

    It is time you respected that, and acknowledge that you are giving the award to the wrong moment.

    *drops mic*

  • Robert Rossi

    Again, the liberals playing checkers while our president is playing chess!! World class chess!!! These buffoons are assuring Trump’s 2020 win. I predict you’ll never ever see another democratic president in our lifetime!!!!!

  • fugly

    Notice they tried so desperately to claim the Russian hacking was true because the forms did not include the attachments. “All sorts of payoffs could be in those”. Yeah, right. Do you think the IRS really takes one glance at a billionaires tax claims and says “yep. looks good to me”. No, they don’t. Every paper, every source of income is scrutinized and investigated. He was audited numerous times, and each audit goes back as far as six years on his tax records, so I seriously doubt he’d be a free man walking among us if there was any funny business in his income reporting. But hey, don’t let the facts get in the way of your sensational fake news, MSNBC.

    And they skimmed over the little detail that he paid 25% federal tax and even had the audacity to complain that he didn’t pay more (he paid twice the percentage as Bernie Sanders). They didn’t bother to mention that their employers paid less percentage in tax for the same fiscal year, either.

    Rachel Maddow is a complete idiot.

  • Magda

    this is just hilarious, Trump is ultimate troll KING.

  • Brian Donathan

    who cares what richard madcow says ROFL!

  • Dave Allen
  • Armando Interiano

    I am no genius. But even I know that all of Trump’s returns are in the hands of the IRS, of the anti-Republican IRS of Obama. If there were something in those tax returns, we would have known it by now, way before the election.
    I am no genius, but compared to Democrats, I am Albert Einstein.

  • Joey Justin

    Ratchet MaddCow…………….another transgender fruitcake.

  • He’d look less like a chick if he grew a beard or something..

  • Rohger

    Quit watching this media “giant” long ago.I can not stand that crooked smirk….and the SMACKING,anyone else notice that ?

  • DEPLORABLE Grandma Susan

    FINALLY! Stick a fork in her, SHE’S DONE! No one will ever be able to take her seriously after this.

    Now, the puzzle is, how did they ever take her seriously?

  • EDDIE

    Played Maddow for the fool she is!

  • John Marini

    She finally bit off more than she can chew. And God know she can chew with the best of them.

  • Hamm Sammichez

    Why does it look like that Mr. Madcow never gets enough fiber in his diet?

  • myddrinemrys

    Dear Richard –

    Seek help. Please. You have descended into lunacy, and it is no longer even remotely funny. We’ve all seen the video of your mental breakdown on the eve of the election, and everything I’ve seen since then tells me that you are spiraling further and further down the rabbit hole.

    Mr. Maddow, for your own sake seek help.

    Sincerely,
    Myddrin

  • MomaBee

    Staggering ineptitude.

  • Cle Collins

    too funny the video is down! Embarassment perhaps? LOL

  • Barry Leeper

    I bet Maddow was flicking her bean thinking she had a scoop and then reality set in….she was set up by Trumps people. I don’t watch any of the state controlled news media shows because they are nothing but propaganda as Maddow just showed. She must feel pretty crunched by now. I LOVE IT!! Chuck U. Farley!

  • Marty

    Trump is brilliant. Rachel? Not so much

  • Chiral

    headline is misleading… it’s just another episode of Rachels’ ‘special’ news for the mainstreamed adult.

  • One-Eye

    I was hoping this would be her ‘Dan Rather’ moment and end her career.

    But give her time. She’ll do it again.

  • I cringe any time I hear this dudes voice.

  • Cai

    This is Maddow’s usual trick, she doesn’t reveal her “top” story until 20-30 minutes into her show.

    And for a woman who looks hella butch the rest of the time, what’s with the toned down 80s look on this show.
