Rachel Maddow Seemingly Bombs With Trump Tax-Return Reveal — Did Trump Play Her? Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-03-14 at 11.14.09 PMDid Trump — who would be the client! — leak his own return?

Love Rachel Maddow, but when she teased that she had gotten a hold of Donald Trump's tax returns, people expected a lot more than what she actually had.

Maddow, via Trump biographer/investigative journalist David Cay Johnston, had two pages, front and back, of Trump's 2005 1040 form, which revealed he paid $38,435,451 in taxes on income of more than $150 million. Sounds like a lot, but it represented only a 4% payment rather than over 30% it would normally be; The Daily Beast reports the Trumps paid about $31 million in the AMT, a tax Trump wants eliminated.

I am not big on conspiracy theory — at all — and I think people tend to give Trump way too much credit for some of the machinations going on in general. However, he has a history of leaking items to benefit himself, and he also has a history of leaking items to distract.

In this case, because while the returns do raise questions, those questions are above the pay grade of Joe Q. Public, who will think that the guy made a lotta money, paid a lotta taxes and is being persecuted by the publishing of the returns.

In fact, the White House statement on Maddow's action plays the sympathy card:

This has Trump written all over it. Why? Because he doesn't want to talk about Russia and wants to push ahead on denying health care to tens of millions of Americans, many of whom foolishly voted for him and probably therefore deserve to die unaided, but dirty leftists would rather they didn't.

Watch her summary of the returns after the jump ...

Pay For Gays: Salaries Of Top TV Stars Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-01-05 at 10.26.45 AMFrom lower L, clockwise: Roberts via ABC, Cyrus via NBC, Parsons via CBS, DeGeneres via Telepictures, Shepard via Fox, Cooper via CNN.

Some of these estimated salaries of top TV stars are pretty mind-blowing. I knew Judy Sheindlin made a bundle, but $47M a year?

And when it comes to episodic TV, how'd you like to knock down $1M per episode to do the backbreaking work Kaley Cuoco does on Big Bang Theory?

Variety's full list is here.

6-PACK — Grinding Prince Charming + Orlando Pride + Bannon Raised Up + Trump's Anti-Gay Minions + Maddow On Pence's Anti-Gay Moves + History: The Gay Marine Who Saved Ford! Comments (0)
 

Reunion Recap.. I just have to get this off my chest. Since the word "authentic" was used so many times on the show Finding Prince Charming by that fraud of a bachelor. I think it's time that someone takes heed to their own advice. How about being authentic that you're still hooking. It's been proven many times that you are. Also branding yourself as an "interior designer" when we all know that is a completely, and poorly, manufactured FAKE business, I mean, your portfolio speaks for itself. How about coming clean that you embezzled over $40K from the Atlanta rainbow crosswalks project. I just happen to be friends with some of the donors. They want their money back! Also, stealing Rolex's off the nightstand of your hookups. How about being authentic about the fact that you have physically abused your partners in every relationship that you have had, including and not limited to launching blunt objects at their head, like a computer. How about being authentic about the fact that you actively pursued me, Brandon, Eric and Paul right after the show wrapped. How about being authentic about seeing your Johns just before and AFTER the show finalized shooting. Oh, and last but definitely not least, how about that time you pursued me a DAY after you were with Eric to try and hook up with me in Chicago during market days after saying you were not with anyone. Just to be very clear, none of us knew about Roberts past and consequently, his present about being a rent boy. Here's a lovely pic of Robert and I at Market Days in Chicago. For the record, he tried to sleep with me. But even then, without knowing what I know now, I wouldn't go near that science experiment. And by science experiment I'm talking about his penis. I insisted that we should just cuddle. Stop LYING! Peace out you sociopathic ho! #realtalk #thetruth #exposed

Hotel New Hampshire: Check Out Bernie Sanders & Hillary Clinton (No Vacancy For Republicans) Comments (0)
 

A special moment with a (new!) supporter and his mother in Henniker, New Hampshire.

Posted by Hillary Clinton on Monday, February 8, 2016 

Truly touching moment between a genuinely thrilled new supporter of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire and the lady herself. 

Below, Bernie Sanders underscores what he thinks his campaign is about: 

New Hampshire, Let's Transform America

What this campaign is about is ending a corrupt campaign finance system, a rigged economy and a broken criminal justice system. If there is a high turnout tomorrow in New Hampshire, I think we are going to win. Come out and vote and let's transform America. Thank you

Posted by Bernie Sanders on Monday, February 8, 2016

Today is the New Hampshire primary, and voting is underway! Why so much value and important is placed in Iowa and New Hampshire, two non-representative states, I'll never understand. But that's the game! Results will be in later tonight.

Before then, don't miss this great interview Hillary Clinton gave Rachel Maddow. Hillary really, really spells out why she thinks some people refuse to trust her. The best quote:

I emerged on the national scene in 1992, and I have been under relentless attack ever since. Now, just read behavioral science, read psychology: Even when all the attacks prove to be unfounded, untrue, it leaves a residue, right? People say, “Well, why is she being attacked so much? Must be something there.”

That is 100% true. I fought with a crazy dude on Mamie Van Doren's wall (I need new hobbies) who despises Hillary, will not vote Democrat if she is the nominee, and his argument boiled down to, “Well, why has she been in the middle of so many attacks and scandals since before I was born?”

First, he was older than I am, so he needs a calendar. But I also hope—hope!—people like him, who probably have many very valid criticisms of Hillary, will at least take a step back and consider that she is being attacked not because she deserves it, but because she represents a huge threat tot he status quo. Yes, she is more status quo than Bernie Sanders, but he is not a woman (sorry, it does make a difference) and he is not the front-runner anywhere except in New Hampshire. He will be just as unfairly tarred and feathered if he miraculously out-maneuvers Hillary—and he will not deserve the abuse either.
