During the whole presidential campaign Democrats biggest beef with Trump was that he wouldn’t release his tax returns.
FINALLY a liberal got their filthy paws on two pages of the POTUS’s 2005 tax returns.
Rachel Maddow released the story on her MSNBC show. It backfired in her face before she knew it when the White House released the documents before she even went on air.
But ALAS! We have a second backfire.
Turns out Trump paid more in taxes than Obama and potentially MSNBC employees… as well as Bernie Sanders.

What makes the embarrassment of Maddow’s big reveal all the more tasty is this little nugget: new life being breathed into this Heat Street joint about just how many MSNBC employees have tax problems. So while their butch-cutted lesbian anchor complains about other rich people not paying taxes, her coworkers are… not paying taxes:
A Heat Street review of public records show that a total of six current, prominent MSNBC pundits have recently settled federal or state tax liens, while one still has tax problems. Moreover, at least two other hosts who recently left the network have also had massive tax liens filed against them.
The Rev. Al Sharpton — MSNBC’s Sunday morning host — easily comes in first place when it comes to “issues” with the taxman. He and his various entities—including several dissolved by New York for failure to pay taxes—currently owe about $1.5 million in state and federal taxes, interest and penalties, according to public records.
Looks like MSNBC has more explaining to do than Donald Trump.
