When it comes to Donald Trump, the left races to embarrass themselves like peckish feminists to a Krispy Kreme (see Chris Cuomo Actually Compares Being Called “Fake News” to the N-Word and Joe Scarborough Ground and Pounds Anti-Trump Media Over Fake News). But how embarrassing was the “leaking” of Trump’s 2005 tax returns? People are saying that maybe Trump was the one who leaked them.
And when I say people, I mean the reporter… who received the tax returns in the first place.
“Donald has a long history of leaking things. So it’s a possibility.”
“For a leak this seems to be pretty good for the president. It was the best number to show how much money he makes, it doesn’t show anything nefarious and he winds up coming out looking like ‘see what’s the big deal?'”
Yes, yes, the reporter in the same segment suggested, “Trump may have leaked these, he has a history of leaking things,” then seconds later said “But he probably didn’t!” Reminds me of people who mock your giant posterior followed with the chaser: “Oh I’m just kidding!” as if this somehow erases the slight. But cool, David Cay Johnston, put the theory out there, then cover your own rectum. Well played.
For the sake of the chuckles, let’s play this theory out for a second, assume the Donald just hit level seven of Trollmaster 2017, right up there with Michael Knowles who “penned” Reasons to Vote Democrat.
I’m President Trump and below are some of the responses Post-Rachel Maddow’s National TV Face Plant (the scientific name). Well, today I’m running around the White House swinging my pants in the air…

Wanna know why people trust the media less than they trust Trump? This is why.

If I'm Maddow, the first thing I do when I see "CLIENT COPY" is wonder what trap I'm falling into by hyping it. She clearly did not.

Note: When you had people thinking that Trump paid nothing, the revelation that he paid $38M actually makes him look better

So again, a media that hates Donald Trump… only showed why people trust media less than they do Donald Trump. Instead of Rachel Maddow shaking her fist and saying “You can’t stop me because the First Amendment” she should have thought about how this all seemed a little too convenient. And how it skewered a precious conspiracy theory narrative, now deader than Muhammad’s overly beaten wives.
Maddow was basically the guy who created Jurassic Park. More concerned that she could than if she should. Lesson? If you’re going to attack someone for not paying their taxes, and it turns out they paid even more than your beloved Obama (and your fellow tax-cheating employees), a T-Rex will eat you off a toilet.
Now let’s talk about one of her former colleagues…
