Trump paid $38 million in taxes in 2005: White House

That's the general gist of this very pointed Late Show segment from Wednesday night, which casts Colbert as a Maddow stand-in who promises to tell his audience "a joke-a joke we can confirm has been heard by Donald Trump". Zac Petkanas, a senior adviser to the Democratic National Committee, said: "The White House's willingness to release some tax information when it suits them proves Donald Trump's audit excuse is a sham". The "joke" itself is the classic "why did the chicken cross the road" that everyone's heard, with the breaking news that "Trump has a sense of humor" in the news bar at the bottom of the screen.

"Why did the chicken cross the road?" The answer right after this break. "I take it seriously, we're going to get this thing figured out piece by piece by piece". While Fallon had let loose with a couple of zingers about Maddow in his monologue, he was downright giddy when he introduced her, enthusing: "You were trending on Twitter last night!"

French presidential candidate Francois Fillon charged in jobs investigation
Fillon's lawyer could not immediately be reached for comment and there was no immediate comment from the candidate himself. They tweeted a caricature of his main rival-centrist Emmanuel Macron-that Fillon himself said appeared anti-Semitic.

The White House confirmed details of the president's 2005 federal tax return after its first two pages were leaked Tuesday. Although there is no legal requirement for politicians to release tax returns, for decades it has been customary for presidential candidates to do so. The returns do not indicate whether he paid taxes in other years or how much he might have paid. "Show us the tax returns, so we can stop freaking out about them".

"We got a statement from "em", she said". Maddow and Johnston speculated on Tuesday's show about whether Trump had something to do with the document turning up in Johnston's mail. He paid 38, looks like $38 million in taxes. That does not support arguments from left-wing voters during the campaign that Trump doesn't actually pay federal taxes.

India hoists the tallest national fag at Attari border
India has made it clear that the flat was being installed 200 metres before the zero line and was not a violation in any manner. Earlier there was plan to hoist the tricolour on January 26 but due to some technical reason it was delayed.

He denied that Trump himself was behind the leak to Maddow and said that it was offensive even to be asked the question.

"I think the reason people were so excited is because it's really weird that the president hasn't released his financial information", she told Jimmy Fallon late Wednesday on NBC's "The Tonight Show".

Tony Ferguson Never Wanted Khabib Nurmagomedov's Money to Fight
Nurmagomedov said: "I think he's much better than Conor". "Mixed martial arts is the freest form of combat sport there is. MMA is one of the biggest sports in the world and I think after this fight its going to change a lot of things".
