Did Rachel Maddow get “McCained?”

 

Sure smells like it could be a set-up, courtesy of Trump, the master tactician.

 

 

While Rachel Maddow drones on with the coherence of Janet Yellen, losing thousands of viewers by the minute, the MSNBC anchor was promptly scooped not only by the White House which revealed her “secret” one hour in advance, but also by the Daily Beast which reported that its contributor David Cay Johnston had obtained the first two pages of Trump’s 2005 federal income tax return, allegedly receiving them in the mail, and posted his “analysts” on his website, DCReport.org.

 

According to the documents, Trump and his wife Melania paid $38 million in total income tax, consisting of $5.3 million in regular federal income tax, and an additional $31 million of “alternative minimum tax,” or AMT.

“It is totally illegal to steal and publish tax returns,” the White House statement concluded. “The dishonest media can continue to make this part of their agenda, while the President will focus on his, which includes tax reform that will benefit all Americans.”

 

 

This has reverse sting written all over it.

 

Feed an enigmatically incriminating document to a willing dupe with an immense grudge/agenda, and let the rest of the story takes its course.

 

 

 

Sounds like Rachel got McCained, or at the very least, Geraldoed.

 

Feels Good!

    Mr. Madcow really needs to give it up. If he really thinks that somehow there will be something incriminating on President Trump’s tax returns, he is delusional.
    I will definitely give President Trump kudos for this.
    No future presidential candidate will ever have to participate in this income tax side show. All it has been used for is a sledgehammer against whoever the Republican candidate has been.
    This is Good Trump.

    • She is the most vile leftist and it’s more aggravating that she seems to be the figurehead of a lot of the left…they prop her up as the great cultural voice to their stupidity.

    OT: Great news, nobody likes Amy Schumer’s latest:

    If she weren’t related to Chuck Schumer, would she even have a career? After all, there are enough unfunny disgusting fat chicks pushed on us these days as it is…

    • Chicks, fat, skinny, short, ugly, pretty, are just not funny.

        I agree; I can count on one hand the number of female comics I find truly funny.
