1. President Trump's tax returns have been released, thanks to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. The news anchor first made the announcement that the show had Trump's tax returns on Twitter, promising viewers an exclusive look into the documents everyone has been wondering about for months. Maddow, however, did not eagerly begin her show with the breaking news. Instead she started as she usually does, and made viewers wait for the Trump tax discussion, which, of course, brought on some harsh criticism on Twitter.

Finally, though, Maddow held up the document she somewhat randomly obtained - a two-page tax return from 2005. Watch below to hear the full scoop and why the decade-old tax return still matters:
