Rachel Maddow's Response To Being Called 'Sir' Was Absolutely Priceless

And as it turns out, the report didn't end up delivering much in terms of substance, showing some basics income and deductions for the year but critically not where the income came from.

CNBC: "Donald Trump just got a nice victory, thanks, of all people, to Rachel Maddow". We're guessing she's probably cool with either.

President Trump said Friday that news outlets "shouldn't be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody's name".

"What we really would've been interested in ... were disclosures of all his income", he said.

Or Meyers: "Rachel Maddow aired an exclusive report last night uncovering a portion of President Trump's 2005 tax return". She also was criticized for waiting almost 20 minutes before revealing what the tax records showed. Nonetheless, it did give her show the highest ratings it's ever had, making it the second highest rated program in MSNBC history.

Now she's saying this is just the beginning, that the leak of the tax returns would happen again, and that was just as big a story as the tax returns. For long-time watchers of her show, the structure was familiar: Maddow frequently opens with long, detailed stories that follow many paths.

Politico senior media writer Jack Shafer wrote that Maddow "whipped up a cumulus-sized head of froth" placed atop a "one-ounce scoop".

Romelu Lukaku decides against signing new Everton deal?
But Lukaku, 23, has knocked back the offer of around £130,000 a week in his determination to get Champions League football. However, Lukaku wants to keep his options open rather than put pen to paper on the £140,000-a-week terms on offer.

"Did you see this?", asked Maher. "The bombshell here is that some of his tax returns have been made public for the first time, when he's been trying to hard to keep them secret", Maddow explained.

The smart money says no: Much more likely, they emanated from the unsuccessful and ill-advised 2006 lawsuit that Trump filed against former New York Times reporter and Trump biographer Timothy O'Brien in which the same returns - 2005 - were provided in discovery.

If the Trump team were to have any hope of convincing a court that Maddow committed defamation, he would have to prove that Maddow and Johnston obtained Trump's tax returns illegally. "I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder".

'But they put them out, and I think it was bad. "What else should we have expected from Rachel Maddow at 9 p.m. on MSNBC?" Other than more zeros and apostrophes, Trump's tax return and mine are quite similar.

Trump also said during the interview the leakers "don't respect the law" and that "it's bad what's going on in Washington". Many others think Trump has been hounded into disclosing more than should be required.

"If somebody has access to those and wants to leak it, this has proved there is a massive audience for that sort of information", she said.
