Hot air and intrigue: did Donald Trump leak his own tax return?

Hot air and intrigue: did Donald Trump leak his own tax return?

Maddow defended the work she and her team did on the tax returns story to the Associated Press and during an appearance on The Tonight Show Wednesday night. "So without further ado - why did the chicken cross the road? - the answer right after this break". They are eaten by people like Russian oligarch, Dmitry Rybolovlev.

Maddow put the media world to a standstill Tuesday evening when she tweeted that she had Trump's tax returns and would be revealing them on her show that night.

In other words, as Colbert hissed after showing a clip of Maddow vamping: "she's got nothing".

Late night has since pounced on Maddow's stall tactics, with none better than The Late Show's Stephen Colbert. While she didn't reveal the income figures immediately, she did tell viewers at the top of the show the exact documents that were obtained and how they came to light, she said. "For years now, people have wanted to see his tax returns". She revealed in a big anticlimax that Trump earned $153 million and paid $36.5 million in income taxes in 2005, paying a roughly 25 percent effective tax. We've got the details on how she thinks the president very well may have been the person who leaked the documents. These are important questions. "If that's really what he wants the story to be, he can release all of his taxes and we can all glory in his enormous wealth". It's a long tradition in the news business.

MADDOW: This document has surfaced. We just got it.




Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon had the MSNBC presenter on his show for a valedictory lap, a hint that relations may not be so frosty between the network and its cable news cousin.

The Democrat-led Assembly is scheduled to vote Thursday on the legislation inspired by the Republican president's failure to disclose his tax returns during the campaign. He paid 38, looks like $38 million in taxes.

"I want to be trustworthy to my audience", the anchor said.

Phew! After all this, viewers were on the edge of their seats, ready to learn what was in Trump's tax returns, a revelation that would surely connect all of Maddow's dots and begin Trump's downfall.
