what is he going to loosen up. not what he is going to screw them up. under obama they were getting screwed whgettingscrewed by the. ♪ a good time ♪ ain't looking for nothing ♪ but a good time ♪ and it's only going to get better than this. steve: hello, everybody. welcome to studio e. he has have dug out. new york city. there is an interesting story in the "new york post" and that has prompted the headline flake news. are apparently yesterday et national weather service. ainsley: i thought you were referring to this one. >> jose's his stress there. steve: flake news as we knew the national weather service knew we weren't going to wind up with 2 feet of snow. we wound up with 7 inches. they didn't want people to think it wasn't a dangerous system. shut down the schools, children. we got the point. buff they knew we weren't
3:02 am
going to get 2 feet of snow. ainsley: they plow the roads and then all the snow goes to the sides. there is like whole hedge of snow. like you have to have snow boots if you live in new york. walk all the way around to the edge. where they have a little path cut out. brian: problem with the dog sled the dogs when you are not using them they need to be active. not bringing them anymore. ainsley: these are the problems we're fortunate to have. it is so beautiful beautiful. i love it. brian: that's a woman who didn't see it her entire life. let's talk about this. ainsley: that's true. brian: wiretap situation. no. there is news. this just in the 2005 donald trump taxes are in. it is explosive. is unbelievable. hold on tight. steve: yeah. hold on. rachel maddow thought she had a gotcha moment for donald trump. she behind the fact that she
3:03 am
had obtained his tax returns. ainsley: tweeting about it all day yesterday. steve: then it turns out of it was probably her al capone moment. nothing burger. as it turns out in the year of 2006. according to investigative journalist by the name of david k. johnson who got ahoflted first two pages of donald and melania's 1040. he made a lot of money and he paid a lot in taxes. he followed all rules. ainsley: the white house released a statement saying you know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violated a law to push a story about 2 pages of tax returns from over a decade ago. before being elected president, mr. trump was one of the most successful businessmen in the world with responsibility to his company, his family, and his employees to pay no more tax than legally required. he david david david k. johnson said i went to my mailbox and it was there these two pages of taxes. hit books on donald trump. liberal guy. hateful guy. the first time i actually saw him. i have head some stuff that he has done. he had a chance to see this.
3:04 am
we all take this in and realize he pays a lot and he made a lot. here is david k. johnson with this explosive story. >> what's the most important about this tax return though, rachel, two tax systems. you and i file tax twice. the regular tax system and the alternative minimum tax. if we didn't have the alternative minimum tax and donald trump in writing want to end the alternative minimum tax, he would have paid taxes at a lower rate than the bottom half of taxpayers. the poor in this country who make less than $33,000. as it is, because of the alternative minimum tax, he paid 36.5. not the 38 the white house statement says. they're counting his self-employment tax which is payroll taxes. 36.5 million he paid 24%. you know who pays 24% in this country. married couples with two
3:05 am
incomes like my wife and i who make about $400,000 a year. donald trump and his wife made $418,000 a day. and the point of this is the top in this country, people at the top are not burdened the way we suggest. with. ainsley: cry me a river. my gosh. brian: this is why h and r block doesn't have a reality show. glassing over e passing out. steve: all about fairness. donald trump made a lot of money but he paid a lot of money. he paid and followed the rules. in comparison, take a look. we have got a graphic for you. donald trump paid 25% last year. barack obama, when president paid less than 20. the average tax rate for comcast 24%. ains chains is the parent company of nbc. look at that bernie sanders 13.5. i also netsed that the very famous fellow by the name of warren buffet paid only 17%. so, warren buffet paid less
3:06 am
than donald trump. maybe donald trump needs a better tax guy because obviously he is paying too much in taxes. ainsley: he made about 150 million. he paid almost 40 million in taxes. that's a lot of money. so bottom line he paid taxes but he paid a lot. brian: i like your dress e. ainsley: thank you. steve: focus. focus. brian: i apologize. i will point out. i will say. this i'm just wondering in the big picture, do you think donald trump is actually unhappy about this? steve: no. brian: for this to come out it shows how successful he is. the bigger question is, are you better in the big picture if donald trump had that money to invest and have more jobs, more real estate opportunities. more commissions on that real estate purchase. that's the whole thing. are you better off putting that into a big pot with an inefficient government or are you better off giving him more money to invest and create more opportunities? that's the bigger story. ainsley: if anything when i
3:07 am
woke up and saw in this morning or watching last night. i said okay, he made a lot of money. so, proof is in the pudding. my gosh, he kept saying he had made a lot. he was a billionaire. now we see evidence that he did. i was happy to know that he followed the law and paid a lot in taxes. brian: some lawyers. he wouldn't ever take the risk of doing that. steve: completely destroys the democrats' narrative last year. donald trump doesn't want to release his taxes because we know he never paid taxes. well, as it turns out he did pay a lot of taxes. in fact, we don't know exactly what donald trump the president thinks, but we know what his son donald trump jr. thinks. thank you rachel maddow for proving to your trump haghtd followers how successful real donald trump is and that he paid 40 million in taxes. #taxes. brian: that reminds me of this jimmy fallon thank you, rachel maddow. you will see it if you stay up late at night. because we do a morning show i watch it in the mornings. ainsley: what do you think about that?

3:19 am
lost during the obamacare down a little more than today. why are people, robert, in your shoes you said this word earlier euphoric about what donald trump is talking about. >> we are finally being put back in to a level playing field. you know, american business is not afraid to compete and to win. but when you are buried up to your waste and throwing fast balls at your head, it's kind of hard to compete that way. president trump has leveled the playing field. he has put this back in the batter's box and we're getting the same pitches everybody else is. go ahead. steve: i was going to say, do you think it helps? i mean, you are a businessman. does it help having a businessman in the white house? does he understand things that perhaps somebody who didn't have the same kind of background would not? >> it is amazing. i have never seen a president like this in my lifetime. i don't know if i will ever see another one again. it's just been a real shot in
3:20 am
the arm for manufacturers across the united states. especially in tennessee. steve: exit question for you, robert. msnbc had the big explosive scoop yesterday that in 2005, donald trump made a lot of money and paid 25% rate of taxes as well. is that a good thing or bad thing? because some people have said oh e he didn't pay taxes. >> i think trump is an american and is he going to do the best he can with what he has, which obviously he made a lot of money. and then is he going to follow the rules because those are american rules. and he is an american. so he is going to pay his taxes. i don't see anything wrong with that. at all. steve: why would you pay more thathan you owe? that would be crazy. robert, we thank you very much for joining us live today from nashville. >> yes. thank you so much. steve: all right. straight ahead on this wednesday. how do you know prince william is just like any other dad?

3:26 am
ignoring them when it comes to this plan. what's the reality? >> brian, it's good to be with you again. the reality is we need to tone down the panic on this one. i mean it's absolutely absurd. the president lost his older brother fred to the disease of alcoholism. he understands this is a disease and not a moral failing. that's number one i think things have spun out of criminal interest w. this. we still have the comprehensive act passed with bipartisan support last year to increase education, treatment, and access. but we're missing a bigger point here. the failing is right now is that we have inadequate treatment centers across the country that will take you in -- you know this. will take you in for 28 days and spit you out. addiction campuss we bring people, in we treat them for 30 days and then we have a
3:27 am
continuum of care and balanced life curriculum. we have an amazing alumni program. that's the differentiator. but we're not doing anybody any service by bringing them in and dumping them out. it's revolving door. cookie cutter approach. you know that. brian: that's one thing, too. you are lucky to get 28 days. hey your insurance is out. you are out in a week. sorry. maybe there is a part-time place you can go to in between going back to drugs, sadly and checking in once a week. andrew, in the big picture is very expensive to have these rehabs as worthwhile as most of them are. how do you get over that cost? and is there anything in the ryan plan that addresses this? >> i think funding is critical, right? we have to be able to treated everybody whether it's poor folks. listen, when i got clean and sober 12, 13 years ago, i didn't have a penny in my pocket. there are ways to treat people. it has to be the right sort of
3:28 am
treatment. so the funding is critical. and all -- based on the ryan plan, what i see is that we're turning the power over to the states. not immediately. 2020. and they are on the front lines. look at west virginia. look at ohio. look at new hampshire. okay. i want the governors of those states and legislators of those states to make the decision on how to best treat folks, how best to spend those dollars. they are on the front lines. and here's the other point. so, the mandate for medicaid to treat, you know, substance abuse disorder. mental health issues, okay, the mandate goes away, supposedly the mandate goes away in 2020. what politician is going to cut spending when every constituent in their district, in their state is affected by the opioid epidemic? that would be politically untenable. you are not getting reelect new cut spending for treatment. brian: i know a lot of people are concerned about that.

3:34 am
>> how much he paid in taxes? ainsley: sure. >> $38 million in 2005. he earned $153 million in 2005. so, first of all, they say oh, he didn't pay any taxes. and then they say well, you overstated your wealth. wrong on both counts. $38,000,000.2005; $153 million worth of income. i think that revelation last night was actually very pro-presidenpro-president trump. it weight wasn't a negative it was a plus. brian: was it a set-up. that's what this guy said who hates trump secretary of defense i got this in my mailbox i wouldn't put it by the president that he put it. >> there i'm not going to indulge about speculation on this kind of thing. i have no idea. ainsley: why dues this is very pro-trump. >> we have been told he doesn't pay any taxes hillary clinton right there. we have been told he has overstated his wealth. is he not that rich. wrong on both counts. that proved it last night. all the anti-trump people

barking up the wrong tree here. that was a bust. rachel maddow's broadcast was a total bust. steve: turned out she propped up the president of the united states. >> yeah. i think. so. steve: what this particular document reveals is donald trump paid more taxes than bernie sanders, than the former president of the united states. more than warren buffet. >> let me give you the percentages donald trump in 2005 paid 25% tax rate. we have bernie sanders who paid 13%. we have president obama in 2015 paid 19%. so, in fact, donald trump paid more in tax in a percentage of his income than former president obama and bernie sanders the socialist. brian: wouldn't it eliminate a lot of problems if he just relaxed all his taxes. especially if they reveal what this reveals? >> that's his choice, isn't it? steve: sure. >> if he shes not to, he chooses not to. he could pay a political price poor for it.

3:37 am
high. consumer confidence at a decade high. wrap it all up. and have you got hopes for a growing economy and really strong optimism and confidence all across the board here. and it's never reported. he not there. steve: on this channel 20 minutes ago we had a guy involved in the plastics business out in tennessee. he said their business is very optimistic because in the month of february, donald trump's first month we added something like 30,000 manufacturing jobs. whereas during the obama administration we lois about a quarter of a million manufacturing jobs. >> look, the economy, our jobs, our money, very important to everyone and their lives. why is it that you do not see optimism and confidence reflected in the media when this is going on in the economy. steve: answer your own question. why? >> it's not pro-trump. anything a anti-trump is pro-news. anything for trump is buried.
3:38 am
ainsley: he said great optimism in america and the results will be even better. you're going to get tired of winning. >> he is pointing toward growth in the future. and we'll get growth in the future if his policies are in place. brian: that's the speech in detroit that's what it's going to be about regulation and helping growth. over to nashville where is he going to talk about healthcare and sit down with jesse watters. ainsley: going to sit down with the ceos of the auto manufacturers and sit down with the plant that make the cars that drive themselves. i love. this is he going to have a rally with the workers. of the people who actually put on the hard hat. >> speculation is he going to roll back the mileage requirements imposed on the obama administration. steve: leave that. brian: abby is going to deliver the news. at least she promised to. we don't know. sometimes she will storm off. steve: final story. brian: i'm wondering to get your reaction, that was your original birthplace. >> go ahead, abby. abby: now i'm a little

4:06 am
there today, i would be urging my chairman, whether it was devin nunes or jason chaffetz to use the power of congress as well as urging the fbi and doj to do this. congress has a special oversighted that they can get in and really try to root out these bad elements inside the government that have taken hold and really trying to counter president trump's agenda with their just really malicious leaks. steve: okay. david, i know you started by saying look, the narrative from the democrats has been he didn't pay federal taxes now we know at least that year he did. the very latest is the dnc says the reason is he not going to release his taxes other years is because he owes money to the russians. it's back to the russian thing. >> you know. i feel -- i actually genuinely feel sorry for these people. they have nothing. they have offered the american people absolutely nothing since our november victory on

4:10 am
>> no, no. i don't think senator cotton is making it harder. i think senator cotton is a senator participating in the process from the other side of the hill. telling his colleagues on the house side exactly what he thinks needs to be in the bill to make it easier for the senate to pass it. i think there is different ways to view what he is doing. i look at senator cotton as one of the smartest, most articulate men in the senate. >> brian: he is. >> i think the house leadership needs to heed what is he saying and i think the white house is listening as well. steve: all right. ainsley: thank you david bossie live with us this morning. great to see you. >> thanks for having me. ainsley: hand it over to abby huntsman. abby: other headlines this morning. president trump. hitting the road today. first stop detroit, where is he giving those automakers their voice back. planning to halt obama era mandating all cars 50 miles per gallon.

4:18 am
from mar-a-lago, of course, and brought photos. you see secretary shulkin from the v.a. president trump. a photo as well as vice president pence. this is standard operating procedure in every government office around the country. so if had you a v.a. field office in boston, for example, back in the obama days you walked in, there would be an official portrait of barack obama, joe biden and the v.a. secretary. so far in west palm beach, they have refused to hang the trump-pence, shulkin photos. that's why mast took matters into his own hands. we have been told looking overnight local stations in west palm beach are reporting that the v.a. in west palm beach has taken the trump, pence portraits back down saying this was unauthorized by the republican congressman to do this. they need to authenticate the photos somehow as if they don't realize this is really donald trump. and they are not explaining why about 50 days into this administration they haven't hung the photos themselves. i mean, if this congressman has to take matters into his

own hands, why haven't the v.a. bureaucrats simply said okay, donald trump is now president of the united states, let's hang the photo. they are not endorsing him or getting behind him. he is the president. set commander-in-chief. what's interesting is brian mast is ♪ just any congressman. have you hi had him on the show many times. he lost both legs serving this country for the u.s. army in afghanistan. and stepped into an ied. lost a finger as well. this is not just some random congressman showing up at the v.a. steve: latest is apparently the people at the v.a. in the west palm beach they are saying yeah, okay, those are pictures of the v.a. secretary and donald trump. but they have got to come from the home office. you can't just walk in and. >> they want a photo from the white house? maybe the president will fedex them a photo from the president today so they get it from the home office. steve: is he going down there this weekend. he should just show up, where's my picture? >> i hadn't thought of that you are right. on his way home this weekend

4:26 am
somebody in custody and they know because of going to the process of asking questions, asking for documentation, so forth. they can figure out pretty readily that somebody is not a citizen but they are not going to call ice and say hey, we have got this person in custody. ainsley: but you do work with ice if ice comes knocking on the doors? >> if ice comes knocking on the door, we do work with them. and actually there is a list of priorities that ice has, individuals that they want to have custody of, like gang members, for instance. and if our sheriff's department, who we contract with for our police department, if they know someone is a gang member, they will cooperate with ice. steve: all right. so matt, why did your town pass this exactly? is this just to be defiant of the president of the united states? >> well, it's interesting. there was obviously a very
4:27 am
organized group. the aclu was involved. and they came to us at the prior council meeting with a proposal already written. and asked us to put it on the dais. and in our city it takes three council members to agree to something to put it on dais, three did. so it was scheduled for two weeks later. ainsley: what do you think about it? are new favor of a welcoming city? >> no, i'm not. i think the only thing that actually happened when we peaced this resolution, which was reaffirming us as a welcoming city is policy wise it didn't change anything. because the directives it gives is exactly how our sheriff's department already operates. steve: right. >> perhaps what it did do is revive the argument, the debate that has been going on since governor brown of
