In case you missed it, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow tweeted the following on Tuesday night:
BREAKING: We've got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC.

She straight up lit the Internet on fire and when it came time to show off the tax return, it was actually an excerpted 1040 form from 2005. The problem is that everything with the tax returns seemed fine. Basically Trump mad a shit ton of money AND paid his taxes so nobody was sure what the “big reveal” was.
So, Stephen Colbert went into full parody mode on Wednesday’s Late Show.
He didn’t stop there though. Colbert mocked Maddow even more:
Watch the videos above and then understand why Maddow responded with this:
OH MY GOD HOW DOES HE KNOW I HAD A PET CHICKEN. https://t.co/a05dW7LruR
