I Love It When a Plan Comes Together: Trump’s Ambush of MSNBC
It seems Team Trump is using the same sort of playbook TNMM recently suggested to combat the vicious hyenas in the mainstream media: Turn THEM into the story.
An “exclusive” on Trump’s tax returns was touted by the poorly rated MSNBC channel as a hit piece gold mine, and Rachel Madcow was going to levy the first blow in what was sure to be a huge scandal. Of course, the scoop turned the sexually ambiguous Madcow into a dupe as it severely backfired on the talking heads at More Snotty Nonsense By Chicks.
What did Madcow’s exclusive reveal? That Donald Trump paid more than $38 million in income taxes, a higher rate than Lord and Master of the Universe Obama, the Commie Bernie Sanders (who incidentally is getting a lot of blowback for buying his THIRD house, ah, those demagogues) and even MSNBC itself.
There are rumors the recent “tax return” fiasco that blew up in Rachel Madcow’s face was a setup by Trump. The Telegraph reported:
So what gives? Who decided to mail Mr. Trump’s 1040 form to David Cay Johnston, the Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter who claimed the scoop. He had his own theory.
“Donald is a guy capable of leaking stuff about himself if he believes it’s in his own interests,” is how he put it.
Even more delicious, it was revealed in alternative media that no fewer than 9 MSNBC personalities have had tax liens levied against them, including Mr. Noballs, Chris “Hardball” Matthews and the dishonorable “Reverend” Al Sharpton. It’s yet another case of the pot calling the kettle black when it comes to holier than thou “journalists.”
The tax return setup is only one volley in what are sure to be many more lobbed at the mainstream media, as its truly open season on their asses. They’ve been terrorizing the masses with hit pieces and setup journalism for decades, but now with the Internet we can do the same to them. And a savvy Donald Trump looks to have declared all out war on them, as their reputation is sinking faster than bowling ball in a bathtub.
Shining a light on the misdeeds of the talking heads is like shining a bright light into a room filled with rats, watch them all squeak and scurry away. It won’t be long before the people who love dirty laundry have their own dirty laundry aired out.
It’s a good time to be alive, if nothing else to witness the downfall of the spinmeisters.
