Here at the Radical Agenda, we’ve developed what might be described as a profound appreciation for the art of trolling. Even when our enemies are the ones doing it, or they use this precious artform for nefarious purposes, it is sometimes important to sit back and take in the sheer genius of the propaganda itself. Last night, Rachel Maddow broke a big story. Someone illegally leaked Donald Trump’s 2005 tax returns, and as if completely unconcerned about the felony involved, Rachel bragged on Twitter that she would finally expose the misdeeds of the villain Donald Trump on her show. Surprisingly enough, there was no evidence of wrongdoing at all.
As it turns out, in 2005 Donald Trump paid $38 million in taxes on $153 million in income, a higher rate than Bernie Sanders or Barack Obama paid, and certainly a higher amount than the two combined. The closest thing to a “smoking gun” they were about to come up with, was a $60 million dollar profit Trump made on selling a property to a Russian billionaire by the name of Dmitry Rybolovlev. Rachel Maddow is under the impression that this is a great deal of money, but that’s just because she is nowhere near as successful as Donald Trump. He literally made more than twice that amount in that year alone, but Maddow is apparently under the impression that the President of the United States financed his own campaign in order to do some other rich guy a favor, over less than six months salary. Mind you, there is no evidence of any such favors occurring.
