Stephen Colbert brutally mocks Rachel Maddow for her Trump tax returns story

Zac Petkanas, a senior adviser to the Democratic National Committee, said: "The White House's willingness to release some tax information when it suits them proves Donald Trump's audit excuse is a sham".

We're going to tell you why it was amusing to see Stephen Colbert imply that Rachel Maddow's big Trump tax return reveal was all wind-up and no substance.

From there, Colbert teased out the joke in agonizingly slow detail, veering off into sidebars about the history of chickens, roads, and whether either of them had connections to Russian Federation. "The answer - right after the break".

"She went out, when she found out that I got the scoop, and she bought me sneakers", she continued. That does not support arguments from left-wing voters during the campaign that Trump doesn't actually pay federal taxes.

The 2005 tax returns, received from an anonymous source by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston, came in the mail on Monday while Johnston was on assignment researching Trump's real estate deals in Florida, where he heard about them through one of his children, Maddow said. The story is that he paid around $50 million dollars in federal and state income taxes in a single year.

"I think the reason people were so excited is because it's really weird that the president hasn't released his financial information", she told him. I don't want to watch "America's Got 1040s".
