Brian Fallon, the former communications director for Hillary Clinton’s campaign told Democrats not to get distracted by the information in Donald Trump’s tax return document that was released on Rachel Maddow’s show tonight.
Fallon knocked the Republicans’ plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare, calling it “Trumpcare” and suggesting it was an issue more important than the “two pages from ’05 tax return” that was revealed tonight.
Dems should return focus to Trumpcare tomorrow & the millions it will leave uninsured, not get distracted by two pages from '05 tax return

Fallon’s tweet follows the White House’s release of some details of Trump’s 2005 income and paid taxes, which was published just before MSNBC revealed the federal 1040 form on air during Rachel Maddow’s show.
The White House reported that Trump made $150 million in income and paid $38 million in taxes in 2005.
“You know you are desperate for rating when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago,” the statement said responding to the MSNBC report.
