<p>[See <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2017/03/16/boom-even…; target="_blank">NewsBusters</a> for more.] You know it&rsquo;s bad when even the liberal Stephen Colbert is mocking Rachel Maddow&rsquo;s non-scoop about Donald Trump&rsquo;s taxes. The <em>Late Show</em> host on Wednesday devoted two segments to skewering Maddow&rsquo;s hype-fest on the President&rsquo;s 2005 taxes. After noting how the MSNBC host pushed the story on Twitter prior to her show, Colbert joked, &ldquo;Rachel took us on an emotional roller coaster. Because, like a roller coaster, at the end you are right back where you started and feeling a little queasy.&rdquo; The comic played a clip of Maddow&rsquo;s 20 minute-long build up to the tax documents and scolded, &ldquo;She&rsquo;s got nothing!&rdquo; After showing video of the liberal journalist explaining that Trump payed $38 million in taxes, Colbert blasted, &ldquo;$38 million.... All right, $150 million income. That adds up to zero [bleep] being given!&rdquo;</p>
