In case you missed it — MSNBC host Rachel Maddow talked up a big release on Trump taxes earlier this week.
The release ended up being a rather large titanic size flop.
The only information she actually ended up releasing was that Trump is a very successful tax-paying American businessman.
Things looked slightly better for Rachel earlier this week, as this big “tax” reveal led to a successful night of ratings.
Her ratings were not only a record for her show but they were also a record across cable television. With over four million people watching her as she unveiled Donald Trump’s leaked tax figures from 2005.
However this didn’t last long as “The Rachel Maddow Show” saw its ratings plummet 36 percent the night after.
That drop was even sharper in the key demographic of 25 to 54-year-olds, the viewership of which fell 54 percent, Sandra Smith reported. Maddow received criticism from all sides after she and journalist David Cay Johnston revealed Trump’s tax forms on national television.
Geraldo Rivera said it was Maddow’s “Al Capone’s Vault” moment, referencing a 1986 report in which he opened the mobster’s vault live, to find little of value.
On “The O’Reilly Factor,” Bill O’Reilly said Maddow’s broadcast is the latest event in a “circus of ideology and cynicism” surrounding the president.
Additionally, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) pointed out that Trump’s tax rate reflected on the forms was far greater than that of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is often critical of those who don’t “pay their fair share.”
Poor Rachel lost 2 million viewers in one day.
Americans know a fraud when they see one.
