People who tuned into The Rachel Maddow Show on March 14 were saddened to see, after too much hype and 20 minutes of on-air build up, that an expected big news turned out to be a giant dud.
Maddow saw a surge of viewers to her program, following teaser tweets about obtaining President Trump’s tax returns. Maddow eventually revealed two pages of Trump’s 2005 tax return. Maddow’s source was financial journalist David Cay Johnston, claimed to have received the documents in his mailbox.
Tax returns revealed have less value to it but still Mr. Trump still went out of his way to say the findings as “fake news.” Shocking!
Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, "went to his mailbox" and found my tax returns? @NBCNews FAKE NEWS!
