Rachel Maddow Tonight Show Donald Trump Tax Returns


Rachel Maddow appeared on Wednesday’s “Tonight Show” to discuss Donald Trump’s tax returns. Check out the video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Maddow revealed Trump’s 2005 tax returns on Tuesday night during an MSNBC news report. Before the broadcast, Maddow tweeted, “BREAKING: We’ve got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC. (Seriously).” “What we’ve got is from 2005… the President’s 1040 form… details to come tonight 9PM ET, MSNBC,” she added.

Following Trump’s tax return leak, Maddow told Fallon during her interview, “I got home last night and Susan bought me new sneakers,” Maddow said. “She went out when she found out I got the scoop, I don’t know where she got them in our neighbourhood at 7 o’clock at night. She said, ‘These are you got the president’s tax returns sneakers.'”

Fallon went on to ask the journalist how she obtained the private documents. “We heard on Monday that David K. Johnston had obtained what he believed to be one of Donald Trump’s tax returns,” Maddow said. “We spent all day Monday trying to verify it, that this was a real document, these were real numbers, that this was really the president’s tax returns.” “We needed the White House to tell us if it’s real,” Maddow continued. “In the 7 o’clock hour they finally validated and authenticated the document. It was all systems go. We got a statement from them, they called us fake news, blah blah blah, and then we went to air.”

Maddow then expressed her excitement over obtaining Trump’s tax returns, despite them being from over 10 years ago. “When we found out that we had one, it was like speaking to people dying of thirst in the desert, and we were like, ‘Behold! We have found a drop!'” Check out the full interview below!
