Rachel Maddow Mocked on Twitter for Taking Too Long to Reveal Trump's Tax Return

"It takes less time to fill out your taxes than for Rachel Maddow to get to what's in Trump's taxes."

Rachel Maddow teased a big reveal on her Tuesday night show, tweeting earlier in the afternoon that she had gained access to President Donald Trump's tax returns.

The MSNBC host promised to release the returns on her show at 9 p.m. ET.

"BREAKING: We've got Trump tax returns," Maddow wrote, with the network even displaying a "Trump Taxes Countdown Clock" prior to the airing of her show.

The news got Twitter users abuzz about what she was planning to reveal.

However, as Maddow started off her show talking about Trump's reasons for not releasing his taxes, and questioning "cageyness" around Michael Flynn and his ties to Turkey, along with Trump's questionable real estate deals, among many other topics, viewers began to get restless.

Eighteen minutes in, she said she'd get to the tax return "next" — and then cut to a commercial break.

When she came back, she still continued to delay the big reveal through another commercial break.
