Trump Tax Follies, MSNBC Style

That moment when you get trolled by Trump:
Host Rachel Maddow said Trump’s federal return for that year was “turned over” to journalist David Cay Johnston, who gave MSNBC a first look at the documents. It’s unclear how Johnston, with the website DCReport.org, obtained the files.

The White House pre-emptively pushed back minutes before the on-air report, saying that publishing those returns would be illegal.

"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,” a White House statement said.

The White House adds that it is "totally illegal to steal and publish tax returns."

The White House acknowledged Trump made over $150 million that year, and paid $38 million in income taxes.
A whole lot of air time for a whole lotta nothing?
