Ok that's settled


No. A carefully selected partial tax return 12 years old, that happens to reflect a year that Trump paid a higher than usually tax rate doesn't clear up the questions of recent tax returns, that he promised to release, but won't.



So what do you think about Trump paying more tax than Obama and much more than Bernie "1%" Sanders?

Lets actually compare the year in question, 2015, not cherry pick one of Trump's tax returns from 12 years ago, 2005, because it fits a narrative.

President Trump didn't say WHEN he would release them. Smart guy. Keeps the Democrats perpetually triggered.

Let's use the information we have.
So we know Obama and '1%' Bernie have found ways to pay less tax than President Trump.


What narrative are you suggesting here... are you saying that Trump is working with Maddow to help make him look great?

Have you any proof that the 2005 return was selectively provided so Maddow could make him look great?

Looks to me like one of Trumps biggest critics just exonerated him.. couldn't have a better source to let everyone know he pays a lot of tax.

No, let's not. There is no comparison when we are looking at 2015 for two and a 12 year old pre-selected cherry picked partial return for the other.

Let's see Trump's 2015 tax return and then compare.

There are plenty of Republicans and Independents equally as disgusted with his false promise.

Let's.
The only information we have says that "1%" Bernie is a tax dodger and President Trump pays a huuuuge amount of tax.

And when he turns over his tax returns you'll then begin demanding to see his those of his children, then of his present and former employees....you won't stop.


So now it's my fault that Trump broke his promise and has refused to release his tax returns? Nobody cares about his 2005 taxes, they're irrelevant to the issues at hand. We want to see his recent taxes and his recent financial situation. Not his kids', not his employees', unless they're cabinet members with potential conflicts of interest.


See---you are already moving the goal posts here. You poor dears will never be satisfied. I wonder if there is a clinic that treats nosiness?

Again, he has released the required business information. I'm sorry if you can't comprehend that fact or can't comprehend the info he released. He is NOT required to release his tax returns. You have NO right to see his confidential information. To keep whining and crying about it just makes you look like a meddlesome Molly.

So he is just as shady as every other politician..and have no doubt he IS a politician.
And who gives a rats ass about an old tax return, it's not relevant..Trump probably cherry picked and leaked this himself.
Let him release last year's or the year before..something current and relevant.

Nope. Not acceptable. No one asked for, or cares about Trump's 2005 tax return. Nor do we care about his tax rate. We want to see his recent tax returns to determine where he gets his money and who he owes, to determine if he's capable of working for the American people, or if his policies are motivated by his own profit and to pay his debts.

I can't get on board with the Trump administration...but I thank him for this.

I can't tell you how much I enjoy watching liberals get ignored in their perfectly reasonable request to see Trump's tax returns after the way they treated people who wanted to see Obama's birth certificate...which was also perfectly reasonable.

I hope the tax return stuff provides them years of frustration. Maybe people will start pulling their heads out of their asses and stop coddling the most powerful people in the world like they're victims to reasonable public requests.

So, when you apply for a job, do you give them your tax returns? Sorry, but you are just whining and it is pathetic. Really.

Cherry picked? Who did that? MSNBC? Then maybe it is Trump leaked it himself.


Tax returns mean NOTHING. It is not a requirement and it is something that the RNC/DNC would use to cause issue and take up a week of airtime during elections. Useless.

The fact is we as voters were told by numerous outlets including HRC he has never paid taxes.

You can see what he has and what he owes in his financial disclosures.

Thanks for making my point even more clearly. If you can't find what you want to find in his returns, then you will ask for others' returns who are in some way "connected."

Admit that you are just nosy and want to know things that are in reality NONE of your business. Tax returns are between the taxpayer and the IRS. What part of that don't you understand?

Maybe you could post your own returns online so we can determine your motivations?

No. We never asked to see his 2005 tax returns, and they do absolutely nothing to alleviate concerns of his financial ties and how they might adversely affect his ability to represent the best interests of the American people, rather than his own interests.

Tax records never alleviated those concerns for me with any other president. I think people are just hoping that something Nixon-esque comes from the returns and will somehow bring Trump down.

Trump could release made-up tax returns and omit all kinds of business ties. Then what? It's not like you can verify anything with the IRS.

I don't think Trump releasing tax returns is going to produce the alleviation you seek. Not at this point...now that he's dragged his feet on it.

I don't need his tax return to tell me where his best interest lies. Interesting word that... lies...

Why should anyone shut up about Trump's Tax Returns?

And where are the rest of them?

Kind of suspicious that only a "selected" portion was released.
