“The New Birtherism”

This pro­gres­sive ob­ses­sion with Pres­i­dent Trump’s tax re­turns is the new trend iden­ti­fied by Bre­it­bart.com Se­nior Edi­tor Joel B. Pol­lak, this fol­low­ing a week­end of well-or­ga­nized protests in mul­ti­ple cities de­mand­ing that Mr. Trump share his tax records.

“The protesters seem un­de­terred by the em­bar­rass­ing fail­ure of a re­cent ‘scoop’ by Rachel Mad­dow of MSNBC, who claimed to have found Trump’s tax re­turns — only to re­veal a 2005 re­turn that showed Trump pay­ing $38 mil­lion in fed­eral taxes on $150 mil­lion of in­come,” writes Mr. Pol­lak, who also notes that Rep. Max­ine Wa­ters, Cal­i­for­nia Demo­crat, used the tax re­turn rally in the na­tion’s cap­i­tal Satur­day “as an op­por­tu­nity to re­new her calls for Trump’s im­peach­ment.”
