Rachel Maddow's Trump tax show dominates cable ratings

Jimmy Fallon Didn't Ask Rachel Maddow the One Question Everyone Wanted Him To Raw: Trump Unveils $1.15 Trillion Budget

The White House described it as a "large-scale depreciation for construction".

And many of us fell for it. Trump's effective tax rate for 2005 was 79 percent.

- Jacob McGimsey (@JakeMcGimsey) March 15, 2017Not sure how 1 year of returns from 12 years ago proves Trump is not dodging paying taxes. The Rachel Maddow Show clearly was tempting those in the anti-Trump crowd to tune in for a smoking gun revelation - only there was no gun, no smoke, and no victim.

But Maddow fired back at disappointed critics in an interview with The Associated Press today, saying, "Because I have information about the President doesn't mean that it's necessarily a scandal".

Davis tweeted a picture of Trump's and Obama's tax returns side by side.

"Was there a huge, damning bombshell in these tax returns? No".

Not only did she break the first leaked tax returns of Donald Trump, but she also handled a misgendered flub with humor.

As we learned after commercials, nearly nothing.

A Carnival Cruise Ship Almost Hit Some Jet Skiers
While attempting to get back on board, the panicked vacationer accidentally flipped the jet ski over completely. The incident occurred Saturday as the Carnival Magic was departing Port Canaveral harbor.

"If anything, Maddow helped Trump by showing he paid $38 million in taxes on $150 million of income".

ABC added that Trump "would have paid about $7 million more were it not for the alternative minimum tax, which is created to make the rich pay their fair share and which president trump promised to abolish".

The tax documents, which showed Trump made $153 million in 2005 and paid $36.5 million in income taxes, did not exactly amount to a bombshell.

Rachel, just one message.

The "Legal Insurrection" website mocked Maddow with the headline "Rachel Maddow's career committed suicide live on national TV tonight".

The Hill: "Maddow's Flub is a Win for Trump". It also set a series best among viewers 25-54, averaging 1.4 million in the news demo.

The difference is that Rivera didn't know nothing was there.
