Rachel Maddow’s Big Trump Tax Scoop … Donald Trump Paid A lot in Taxes in 2005 … But a Greater Percentage Than Obama and Bernie Sanders
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … I FELT LIKE I WAS WATCHING GERALDO RIVERA OPEN AL CAPONE’S VAULT.
Last night on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow claimed in having Trump’s tax returns to have the biggest scoop since, hmm, since, well nothing. In their effort to attack, embarrass and continually go after President Donald J. Trump, the LEFT has embarrassed themselves. Thank You Rachel Maddow for this over-hypes “Nothing Burger.” In fact, Rachel Maddow has proves some Democrat and Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign lies that Trump paid no taxes. WRONG, he paid $38 million and an effective tax rate of 25%. Thank you again Racel Maddow, you know who paid less than Trump … why that would be the darlings of the LEFT, Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders.
And much like Geraldo back in the day with his live TV reveal of the contents of Al Copone’s vault, Maddow’s was a similar career suicidal event on live TV. Maybe worse, because she knew what was in the
vault tax returns.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow spent hours touting a massive scoop: She — or more accurately, veteran investigative reporter David Cay Johnston — had gotten her hands on President Trump’s 2005 federal tax return.
That return, the political universe speculated, might hold the key to unlocking the single biggest mystery surrounding Trump: His financial affairs. After all, this is a president who broke with decades of tradition by refusing to release his tax returns — any of them — during the 2016 campaign, insisting that he was under audit.
The return wasn’t the key. Not even close. (That it took Maddow more than 20 minutes into her show to get to the numbers meant that she was scooped on her own scoop.)
First, the basics: Trump made more than $150 million in 2005 and paid $38 million in taxes that year, according to the two-page summary materials mailed to Johnston this week.
Now, the history: Trump has repeatedly said that he did everything he could to pay as little tax as possible — a position, he insisted, that not only made him smart but also one that lots and lots of voters seemed to agree with. “I fight very hard to pay as little tax as possible,” Trump told ABC in May 2016.
MSNBC OVER HYPES THEY HAVE TRUMP TAX RETURN FROM OVER A DECADE AGO …
Its exactly this type of investigative journalism that has MSNBC with less viewers than blogs do readers. In an effort to embarrass and destroy President Donald Trump, they instead have unwittingly helped him. Trump’s 2005 tax returns showed he made a lot of money. We already knew that, Trump is a successful business man. The 2005 return also shows that he paid a lot of taxes, $38 million to be exact.
The White House said on Tuesday that President Donald Trump paid $38 million in federal income taxes in 2005 — on $150 million in earnings — offering a small glimpse at the president’s personal finances, which Trump has so far kept almost entirely private.
The administration offered those details in a statement after journalist David Cay Johnston published two pages of tax information about the president, apparently from Trump’s 2005 return. The revelations were simultaneously broadcast on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow” show, which included an interview with Johnston. Based on the information on the two pages, Trump paid an effective tax rate of about 25 percent.
If MSNBC wanted to do real investigative journalism, maybe they might want to discover how a private citizen’s tax return was illegal gotten?

IT TAKES A SCAMMER TO RECOGNIZE A SCAM …
From the architect who brought America the lie and scam known to all as Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber says that the GOP replacement to Obamacare is a scam. REALLY? Unlike the the scam that was perpetrated on the American people where Barack Obama lied to the American people and said you could keep your doctor, insurance and hospital if you liked it. Wasn’t Obamacare also supposed to bring down the cost of premiums? By the way, how’s that $10,000 deductible working out for you America? Obamacare is the greatest scams ever forced down the throats of Americans.
I do not begin to claim that the current form of the GOP replacement to the so-called Affordable Healthcare Act is perfect, however, do not ever forget the BS that Americans were fed by people who thought Americans were too stupid (watch video) to understand.
“Any replace[ment] that they would pass would result in millions of Americans losing health insurance, would result in higher premiums, and would result in a huge redistribution from the poor to the rich,” Gruber said on Boston Herald Radio’s “Herald Drive” show with John Sapochetti and Rick Shaffer. “Now if they are happy with that and they are willing to do that, I wouldn’t call that a replacement, I would call that a scam.”
Gruber has stirred up controversy on a number of occasions after videos surfaced of him calling the American public “stupid” for allowing the Affordable Care Act to pass in the first place while being the public face of the legislation. Despite being a public backer of Obamacare, and an antagonist of Republicans’ efforts to repeal the landmark legislation, he doesn’t see much room for the law to improve, such as the single payer system, with the current political climate.
NO BOOK WAS EVER MORE TRUE …
Micheal J. Knowles appeared on Fox & Friends to discuss his new book, that is #4 on Amazon, entitled “Reasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide.” It is a 266page book, but don’t worry, its a quick read. All pages of the book are blank. CLASSIC! Well, when one thinks about it, with the lack of vision and the direction that they want to take the country, the reason to vote Democrat really is a blank page.
To quote an excerpt from author Michael J. Knowles’ new book, the main reason to vote for a Democrat is “ .”
The above is not a typo.
Knowles’ tome, “Reasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide,” is 266 pages of absolutely nothing. Clean, blank, snow-white pages. And as of Thursday morning, it occupied the No. 4 slot on Amazon.com’s “Best Sellers” list.
“What’s really great about this book, you can go cover-to-cover in about 15, 20 seconds,” Knowles’ told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday.
Billed as “the most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date,” the spoof book was Knowles’ attempt to razz the party for a lack of direction. The conservative journalist released it last month and the book was listed at $9.99 on Amazon — but you can pick up a paperback on sale for $7.08.
The project does, curiously, contain an extensive bibliography and a table of contents. But nothing else.
“It took a very long time to research this book,” Knowles said Thursday. “I’ve been observing the Democratic Party for at least 10 years now and when I observed their record and reasons to vote for them – on reasons of economics or foreign policy or homeland security or civil rights and so on – I realized it was probably best to just leave all the pages blank.”
A chapter on civil rights? Blank. Values? Nothing there.
