With the recent exposure of Trumpโ€™s tax returns, the country was treated to one of the biggest duds of a โ€œbombshellโ€ in political history. After years of breathless predictions regarding what they would include, we were instead treated to a guy who legally did his taxes. To say the media was highly disappointed is an understatement.

CNN, which is now pretending legally filing taxes is a scandal, isnโ€™t known for producing high-quality journalistic content, and their old takes are now coming back into view.

It wasnโ€™t just CNN, though. That supposition has been the mainstay of every single moment of consternation among media members in demanding Trumpโ€™s taxes. Rachel Maddow has created a cottage industry out of speculating that the Russians have blackmail material on the President and that his taxes would reveal vast debts that compromise him.

But thatโ€™s not what the New York Times revealed at all. There are no connections to Russians included in Trumpโ€™s taxes. Thereโ€™s also no indication of any illegal activity at all. All they show is that Trump is smart enough to not pay taxes he doesnโ€™t owe. In fact, the President has never been shy about the fact that heโ€™s lost money running for president and while being president. That heโ€™d take losses and not pay income taxes on income he didnโ€™t make isnโ€™t surprising at all. Itโ€™s certainly not a scandal.

Whatโ€™s most hilarious about this entire ordeal is just how much of a letdown it truly is for those who have put everything into Trumpโ€™s taxes blowing the race apart. Thereโ€™s no question that the Times has had this information for months or possibly even years. Theyโ€™ve patiently waited to unleash this right before the debates in an effort to further influence the election.

But in the end, thereโ€™s nothing really here. Meanwhile, the media are exposed once again as being the biased hacks they are.
