MSNBC released Donald Trump’s 2005 tax forms tonight. And what it showed was that Trump paid a higher rate than Socialist Bernie Sanders.
How ironic that this famous socialist that is known for being an anti rich,anti 1% payed nag payed a lower percentage in tax than the billionares that he claims don’t pay enough in taxes.
Trump also paid a higher percentage of his income in taxes in 2005 than Mitt Romney did in 2011.This is the same Mitt Romney who ripped Donald Trump apart during the campaign for not releasing his Taxes.
Trump 2005 tax rate: 25%
Romney 2011 tax rate: 14.1%
Sanders 2014 tax rate: 13.5%

Sadly for Maddow, with this attempt at a “blockbuster” story which has quickly backfired, she may well have killed the great distraction that was the trope of Trump’s tax returns, and which the rest of the “resistance” press hammered on every now and then.
It took over 30 years for someone to top @GeraldoRivera for biggest over-hyped live TV epic fail in history. You did it Rachel Maddow !
