Now Rachel Maddow is Blaming HER OWN VIEWERS For Dud Story on Trump Taxes

By

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is seriously losing it.

She began her current descent into lunacy when Trump won the presidential election, and she’s becoming more insane as the weeks roll by.

This week Maddow infamously teased that she had obtained Trump’s tax returns, suggesting a major scandal was about to break on HER SHOW.

After Maddow spent the first 20 minutes of the show hyping her “scoop” only to FINALLY reveal that all she had was a 2005 tax return that showed Trump paid a LOT of taxes, she was mocked mercilessly on Twitter.

The funniest tweets came from Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr.:

Humiliated, Maddow lashed out at HER OWN VIEWERS for being dumb enough to believe her hype.

The AP reports:

Maddow told the AP that she never misrepresented what she had.

“Because I have information about the president doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily a scandal,” she said. “It doesn’t mean that it’s damning information. If other people leapt to that conclusion without me indicating that it was, that hype is external to what we did.”

Maddow is one of the more visible examples, but she represents a widespread trend in the mainstream media that will ultimately be its downfall.
