Well, at least we got some amusing news out of Tuesday night's flop of a story from Rachel Maddow: Trump paid a higher percentage of his income in taxes in 2005 than Mitt Romney did in 2011 and Bernie Sanders did in 2014. In 2005, Trump paid 25 percent of his income in taxes, compared to Sanders' 13.5 percent in 2014.
Trump 2005 tax rate: 25%— zerohedge (@zerohedge) March 15, 2017
Romney 2011 tax rate: 14.1%
Sanders 2014 tax rate: 13.5%
Other than that, Maddow's big "scoop" turned out to be essentially nothing of value.
BONUS: Well, you could also say that Geraldo Rivera had a big night, too:
"Geraldo Rivera" now trending on Twitter in relation to the Maddow/Trump tax story and yes it's for THAT reason.— Jeff B/DDHQ (@EsotericCD) March 15, 2017
