31. First, Get Ready To Be Attacked Just For Asking Questions...

Second, we are not watchers of Rachel for multiple reasons (too many to detail) including what occurred in this latest episode (from what we have heard).

When we're watching her (now 2 years removed -- with the exception of a video clip every now and then -- literally) she would DRAG OUT whatever the topic was in an attempt to keep you locked tight to the TV screen in front of you for the entire hour.

However, the story got repetitive and she repeats herself quite often. Way too often for our taste.

The point of this is the Tax Returns were a step up. It's obvious.

First, they're 12 freaking years old. How impactful would they be in TODAY's Crazy Times with Cheeto?

Next, it is equally obvious Trump and his Sheep Crew dropped the so-called "leak" - which wasn't - as their response was way too quick for them not to have done so.

Third, the producers should have done more FACT-CHECKING and asked MORE QUESTIONS before ever going full board press with this as the top story of their day.A great question would have been Why was this one (the '05 Tax Return) was "Leaked" and sure as Hell, Why Now?

Basically, Cheeto set Rachel up and she fell for it hook, line and sinker. Cheeto is stupid but he has more than displayed when it comes to playing the media for a fool, he's well tasked at how to do so.

Maybe next time, Rachel will ask more questions before running straight to the camera, reading a script. She got played on this one and was the only news program in the 9 pm ET hour to lead with this "leaked" story like it was for real, for real #BreakingNews.
