Rachel Maddow Turned a Scoop on
Donald Trump’s Taxes Into a Cynical,
Self-Defeating Spectacle

Slate, by Willa Paskin

At 7:36 p.m. Tuesday, Rachel Maddow tweeted, “BREAKING: We´ve got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC. (Seriously),” sending the internet into a frenzy of theorizing. Did Maddow have Donald Trump’s tax returns or just one of the Trumps’ tax returns? Could this be it, the tax return that would bring down the Donald? If this was it, why wasn´t MSNBC cutting into its programming, instead of running a countdown clock to Maddow’s show? By 8:24, Maddow was tweeting that the tax return in question was Donald Trump’s 1040 from 2005. By 8:30, still half an hour before Maddow started

I was watching Tucker Carlson while Maddow was making a fool of herself. Tucker was giving updates during his show as Maddow kept saying much ado about nothing. Only thing is, she believed it.

The defense of the moment (Wed. Eve.) is that Trump ´leaked´ the info and is therefore a LEAKER !

How´s that for Leftist craziness ?

Strange, how the same leftists who´s Policies result in one flaming disaster after another.....are the same people who have never lost an argument or had a moment of doubt.

Thing is #5, this time they are probably right. If you look at the return they have, "CLIENT COPY" is stamped where The Donald™´s signature should be. What they have didn´t come from the IRS, it was either the firm that prepared The Donald™´s taxes....or The Donald™ himself. I wouldn´t bet against it being the latter...he´s done things like that before.

An important fact that should not get lost in the fog of stupidity of this stunt is that NBC likes to hide behind the skirts of MSNBC. Who pays the bills and pull the strings over at NBC is a matter of speculation (Chicoms, Arabs, Soros, all of the above), but there is no doubt that they pay the bills and pull the strings at MSNBC! They are the ones we should be point the fingers at!

When the White House backed off its efforts to dump Sebastian Gorka on another federal agency, the controversial counterterrorism advisor had the president himself to thank, The Daily Beast has learned.After news emerged last week that the Trump administration was setting the stage to move the British-born national security aide out of the White House, President Donald Trump and his chief strategist Stephen Bannon “personally intervened” to put a halt to Gorka’s White House eviction, two senior administration sources said.

Jim DeMint´s ouster from The Heritage Foundation came as a shock to the hundreds of scholars and staffers who´ve seen the organization´s political influence grow thanks to DeMint’s controversial decision to align the leading conservative think tank closely with Donald Trump. But interviews with over a dozen sources at the center of the drama suggest Heritage´s stewards — particularly DeMint´s predecessor, Ed Feulner, and Feulner´s sharp-elbowed protégé, Mike Needham — became convinced that DeMint was incapable of renewing the foundation´s place as an intellectual wellspring of the conservative movement. Days of speculation, tension, and internal bickering came to a close on Tuesday:

Thousands of labor and immigrant right activists took to the streets Monday for a wave of protests in conjunction with May Day, a day that sparks protests annually among progressives but which took on a sharper edge this year over concerns about President Donald Trump´s agenda. Across the country, groups urged immigrant workers to skip work, school and shopping to demonstrate their impact on the economy. In Austin, activists staged a sit-in at the governor´s office at the capitol complex to protest a bill increasing immigration enforcement in Texas.

Trump’s ‘Very Friendly’ Talk With Duterte
Stuns Aides and Critics Alike

WASHINGTON — When President Trump called President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines on Saturday, White House officials saw it as part of a routine diplomatic outreach to Southeast Asian leaders. Mr. Trump, characteristically, had his own ideas.During their “very friendly conversation,” the administration said in a late-night statement, Mr. Trump invited Mr. Duterte, an authoritarian leader accused of ordering extrajudicial killings of drug suspects in the Philippines, to visit him at the White House. Now, the administration is bracing for an avalanche of criticism from human rights groups. Two senior officials said they expected the State Department and the National Security

In December 2014, Hillary Clinton made up her mind to run for president. But even as her team geared up in early 2015 for the formal announcement in April, the campaign was beset by problems: press leaks, the burgeoning e-mail-server scandal, competing speechwriters, divided staffers, leaderless advisers and a meddling Bill Clinton. Yet the most alarming issue of all, authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes reveal in this exclusive excerpt from their new book, “Shattered,” was the candidate’s inability to convey a clear vision or message.

Trump Admits He Thought Being

Saturday marks President Trump’s 100th day in office, and to celebrate the occasion he got a bit too candid in an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Obviously certain elements of being president are pretty fun, but President Trump has discovered that it isn’t all playing with trucks and pressing a button that makes Cokes appear. Sometimes there’s work to be done, and as it turns out being leader of the free world is a lot harder than running a fake university and playing a caricature of a rich person on TV.“I loved my previous life.

PARIS -- French voters shut out the political mainstream from the presidency for the first time in modern history, and on Monday found themselves being courted for the runoff election between populist Marine Le Pen and centrist Emmanuel Macron.French politicians on the moderate left and right, including the Socialist and Republicans party losers in Sunday´s vote, immediately urged voters to block Le Pen´s path to power in the May 7 contest.Voters narrowed the presidential field from 11 to two. Both that vote and the May 7 runoff are widely seen as a litmus test for the populist wave that

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

Before there was Trump, there was O’Reilly’s populism infused with a New York sensibility. Dear Reader (I said “reader.” This will not be the venue for Caitlyn Jenner’s nude debut.), Bill O’Reilly is leaving Fox, and I can’t say I’ll miss him. I don’t mean that to sound too harsh (not that he much cared about sounding too harsh). The truth is I almost never watched his show, unless it was on someplace where I didn’t have control of the remote. That’s not quite the slight it may seem to be either.

A fiery Michelle Obama vigorously defended the healthy eating initiative that was her biggest legacy as First Lady on Friday, telling a public health summit in Washington D.C. that something was “wrong” with an administration that did not want to give consumers nutrition information or teach children to eat healthily. “We gotta make sure we don’t let anybody take us back,” Obama said. “This is where you really have to look at motives, you know.

"How about we not let kids completely guide everything?" she said, speaking at the annual summit on childhood obesity for the Partnership for a Healthier America. "How about we stop asking kids how they feel about their food?

One of the U.S. Senate´s newest members is proposing to shake up the chamber by mandating "diversity" quotas for everything from staffs to committees. A proposal by Nevada’s freshman Democratic senator, Catherine Cortez Masto, could mimic efforts in corporate America. Large companies across the country, particularly those in Silicon Valley, have been under intense pressure to hire more minorities. Cortez Masto thinks it should be a Congressional priority, too. “We should be mandating diversity in our committees, mandating diversity in our hiring practices, mandating diversity throughout the United States Senate,”

"This attorney general should not oversee the hiring process of the next FBI director. His role will jaundice the entire process if it hasn’t already," Schumer said Thursday. Schumer argued that Sessions helping to pick a successor for James Comey, whom President Trump fired on Tuesday, would violate the attorney general’s pledge to recuse himself from any investigation related to Russia´s involvement in the U.S. presidential election. Whoever succeeds Comey will oversee the bureau´s probe into Russia´s meddling and potential ties

WASHINGTON — Only seven days after Donald J. Trump was sworn in as president, James B. Comey has told associates, the F.B.I. director was summoned to the White House for a one-on-one dinner with the new commander in chief. The conversation that night in January, Mr. Comey now believes, was a harbinger of his downfall this week as head of the F.B.I., according to two people who have heard his account of the dinner. As they ate, the president and Mr. Comey made small talk about the election and the crowd sizes at Mr. Trump’s rallies. The president then turned the conversation

Attorney General Jeff Sessions´ office sent out a letter late Thursday to the nation´s federal prosecutors instructing them to pursue the most serious charges possible against most criminal suspects. The move will send more people to prison and for much longer terms by triggering mandatory minimum sentences. Officials at the Department of Justice said the new guidelines are a direct rebuttal of policies implemented under President Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder. The memo is already being referred to as “the Sessions Memo.” The 94 U.S. attorneys were instructed in the memo to “charge and pursue the most serious and readily

Former FBI Director James Comey was furious at the lack of respect the White House showed him in the way he was fired, sources have told ABC News. Associates say he is simmering at some of the comments directed at him by White House staffers, who have used words like "atrocities" to describe his actions as director. One person close to the former director said that President Trump calling Comey a "showboat" and suggesting he is not "competent" has required Comey to show considerable restraint. "Look, he´s a showboat. He´s a grandstander," Trump said about Comey in an interview with
