Now that she’s had her ‘Capone’s Vault’ moment, Maddow is backpedaling.
It’s not MY fault that the public went into a frenzy. THEY overhyped it. Not me.
Here she is in an interview.
Nope. Sorry, that clip just SOUNDED like her. Here is the ACTUAL interview:
Rachel Maddow says that if people felt let down by her story about President Donald Trump’s 2005 tax document it’s more because of the weight of expectation than anything she did.
The MSNBC host found herself in the odd position Wednesday of defending herself from criticism following one of the biggest-ever scoops for her show. Maddow’s show revealed, through reporter David Cay Johnston, two pages of tax return information that showed Trump earned $150 million in 2005 and paid $38 million in income taxes that year. Trump has steadfastly refused to release his tax returns.
Maddow’s tweet less than 90 minutes before her show that “we’ve got Trump’s tax returns” set off a social media frenzy. Although a subsequent tweet specified it was only two pages from one year’s returns, expectations were sky high.
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.” —AP
Her AUDIENCE over-hyped it? MSNBC had a COUNTDOWN clock!
Trump’s taxes have been the Holy Grail of bring-Trump-down stories the Left have been clamoring to get their grubby little mitts on.
They were desperate to show that Trump had some nafarious connection to some kind of a Russian Operative.
BREAKING: We've got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC.

And because of American privacy law, it’s a Felony to release a citizen’s private information.
We fought a War of Independence to break free of a government that weaponized its authority over its citizens. We OUGHT to care about the information the government collects about us becoming public. Especially with so many political leaks.
If you would care about someone doing it to YOU, you should care about someone doing it to someone else.
It’s one of the safeguards that protects us from becoming a Police State. But now we are publishing unauthorized tax information.
Trump is considering a lawsuit over it. Again, even his critics might want to re-read the previous three paragraphs before assuming it’s just a trivial, petty, or personal vendetta.
The same media that was THRILLED about the illegal seizure of Rush Limbaugh’s medical records in 2003 and danced a jig when NYT published Trump’s taxes and drooled over the possibility of something salacious in Maddow’s ‘scoop’, were the SAME ones saying ‘move on’ whenever the scandal involved someone named Clinton.
Or said nothing about the various staffers of MSNBC with sketchy tax histories.
There’s a difference between responsible adults and pussies.
Responsible adults take ownership of their decisions. Pussies look for someone to blame.
And Rachel is not avoiding responsibility. She’s blaming HER VIEWERS!
That’s like a restaurant blaming its customers.
Congrats, Rachel. Truly you are… the Pussy of the Week!
Here are your prizes!
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles addresses our nation’s abysmal Pussification in his NEW book …
by Doug Giles
PUSS-I-FI-CA-TION*: The act, or process, of a man being shamed, taught, led, pastored, drugged or otherwise coerced or cajoled into throwing out his brain, handing over his balls and formally abandoning the rarefied air of the testosterone-leader-fog that God and nature hardwired him to dwell in, and instead become a weak, effeminate, mangina-sporting, shriveled up little pussy.
* From The Doug Giles 2016 Dictionary of Grow the Hell Up, You Pussy!
Doug Giles, best-selling author of Raising Righteous And Rowdy Girls and Editor-In-Chief of the mega-blog, ClashDaily.com, has just penned a book he guarantees will kick hipster males into the rarefied air of masculinity.
That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.
In PUSSIFICATION: The Effeminization Of The American Male, Giles takes ‘Crispin’ from the unaccomplished, prissy and dank corridors of ‘Pussville’ up the steep, treacherous and unforgiving trail that leads to ‘Mantown.’
