Stephen Colbert Mocks Rachel Maddow’s Long Buildup to Trump Tax Returns

Stephen Colbert went all-out last night mocking Rachel Maddow‘s incredibly-drawn-out announcement about President Trump‘s 2005 tax returns that turned out to be the long awaited sequel to Geraldo Rivera‘s smash hit Al Capone’s Vaule.

Colbert built the suspense to the punchline of a singular joke––”why did the chicken cross the road?”––with lengthy background information and questions that need to be answered right now about Russia.
