MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Just Helped Trump Secure His 2020 Presidency
Who would have thought MSNBC could help Trump secure his 2020 re-election? In the era of “fake news” and accountable reporting, it would seem the mainstream media would want to be careful with the information they make public, but some people just don’t learn! In an effort to blast Trump, MSNBC’s efforts backfired so tremendously (and illegally) that they may have just helped Trump secure all eight years in the White House.
Here’s what happened since the mainstream media isn’t running with the story the same way they cover how Trump eats his steaks, or how intolerant liberals are at Apple stores.
At 5:36 p.m. on Tuesday night, Rachel Maddow tweeted that she had acquired President Donald Trump’s tax information, and hinted that she would share the information on her show later in the evening.
BREAKING: We’ve got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC.

Listing the tweet as “BREAKING” many assumed that the information Maddow would release was his 2015 taxes. The same ones that were infamously used by liberals during the 2016 election to proclaim Trump wasn’t paying taxes at all. With Trump’s taxes being SUCH a hot topic, one would assume that Maddow would open her show with this breaking news. Rather, not only did Rachel Maddow NOT open her show talking about Trump’s tax returns, she didn’t even realize that Trump’s tax return information was already readily available online!
When the MSNBC host finally talked about Trump’s tax returns, the “breaking news” turned out to prove nothing, other than the fact that President Trump paid a crazy amount of taxes in 2005.
Rachel stated, “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!”
Yes, Mazel Tov indeed! Not only did Rachel Maddow NOT make Trump look like some tax-avoiding magician the liberals always painted him as, but she admitted that there was absolutely nothing sketchy in how he operates his businesses.
Not only did Rachel help Donald Trump’s case, but she didn’t even provide the exclusive. The White House released the information at least twenty minutes before the MSNBC host got around to it.
In an official statement blasting the MSNBC host, the White House stated, “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.”
In fact, as conservatives have been quick to point out, not only did Trump pay his taxes in 2005, but he paid MORE in taxes than Socialist Bernie Sanders and liberal favorite Barack Obama. The news makes tweets like these even more hilarious:
