MSNBCs Rachel Maddow just hit a new low in desperation for higher ratings just one WEEK after we exposed a NY Times reporter begging for the IRS to leak Trump’s returns on Twitter. Maddow apparently beat him to the punch, with a year old tax release, and STILL failed to do anything other than prove Hillary Clinton, and the liberal media spent the last two years lying about how much taxes the President paid.
MSNBC’s gradual incline and rating since Pres. Trump was elected was most likely just halted dead in its tracks as Maddow pulled the publicity stunt that’s made her a mockery among even the most liberal of news agencies and websites.
“Maddow would confirm these numbers, turning her big scoop about Donald Trump’s long-missing tax returns into a cautionary tale about overhype. Rachel Maddow, you played yourself—and us too.” – Willa Paskin
Via Obama’s former Adviser, Van Jones, on CNN:

What we actually learned is not only did both President Trump and Tucker Carlson beat her to the punch, the tax returns showed a completely different story than that promoted by the media, Pres. Trump actually paid more taxes (25% rate) than both Bernie Sanders (13%), Barack Obama (19%), and even MSNBC’s parent company, Comcast (24%).

Here’s a clip from the presidential debates where Hillary Clinton repeatedly claimed that Pres. Trump didn’t pay any taxes, although tax experts agree in 2005 he could have still claimed a loss after losing nearly $1 billion in the late 90s.
Of course the Twitter universe unleashed on Maddow’s attempts to draw viewers in like a swarm of hyenas circling dying prey.
This is like watching a super hyped prize fight and the first few rounds are Zzzzzzz.

Maddow really is the long lost daughter of Glenn Beck circa 2010

Is she going to start connecting these points with yarn and newspaper clippings on the wall?

In case you were wondering, Rachel Maddow is doing the TV equivalent of a snail race to hold the audience past :30 or :40… #MSNBC

I was going to say that I can't wait to see the ratings tomorrow, but then I remembered that Nielsen apparently doesn't do that anymore. pic.twitter.com/eRI9VK2JW6

At this point I'm low-key rooting for someone to scoop her on this and tweet out the tax returns before she show them
— Paige Lavender (@paigelav) March 15, 2017
My new theory is she's delaying hoping Trump tweets something INSANE

Maddow's burying of the lede has actually become a bigger story than the scoop itself. Peak absurdity.

This is what @Maddow does. Long, long wind-ups.
That’s also known as burying the lede… or, you know, not having one.

According to a poll I just took of my congressional district, 100% of my constituents want Rachel Maddow to show us the tax return now.

My roommate was watching Rachel Maddow WAITING for her to tell us what's in Trump's tax returns.
Me: She has an hour
Him: Damn I'm bailing

Why won't Rachel Maddow release Donald Trump's tax returns? What's she hiding?
— T.J. Quinn (@TJQuinnESPN) March 15, 2017
Rachel Maddow announces she will release Donald Trump’s tax returns as a 10-episode Netflix series.

It takes less time to fill out your taxes than for Rachael Maddow to get to what's in Trump's taxes
— Eric Stangel (@EricStangel) March 15, 2017
Interesting move by Rachel Maddow here, saving the tax-return reveal for Trump's second term.

Once Maddow finally released the dirt, things got much worse for her…

I wish this guy would spend less time finding Trump's tax returns and more time finishing Game of Thrones.

My bet: Someone at the White House put this portion of a single tax return in this guy's mailbox as a way to make the issue look ridiculous

Without any self-awareness, Rachel Maddow holds up two pages and shrugs "this is all we've got."
— Emily Jashinsky (@emilyjashinsky) March 15, 2017
It's really going to be funny when @Maddow's big reveal is that Trump expensed use of a tanning bed or something.

Needless to say, Rachel, you’ve officially become a bigger joke than you already were. Congrats on your rapid incline in viewership, picking up CNNs quickly dwindling crowd. But you just played yourself, and turned the internet against you.
