Mike Huckabee has torn into Rachel Maddow and MSNBC for baring part of President Donald Trump's 2005 tax returns, calling it an "outrageous violation of privacy" that nonetheless only proved that he "sent a yuuuge pile of money to Washington."

"Not since Wile E. Coyote got his first Acme catalog has anything blown up in someone's face worse than Rachel Maddow's big ‘scoop, on President Trump's tax form," the former Arkansas governor and two-time presidential candidate wrote on his blog.

"Once again, MSNBC's programming had all the heart-stopping excitement of watching somebody go over someone else's 12-year-old tax forms for an hour."

On Maddow's Tuesday night program, she unveiled two pages of Trump's unreleased 2005 tax returns that showed he paid $38 million in federal income taxes on a reported income of $150 million and wrote off more than $100 million in business losses.

"In the end, Trump came out winning so hard that hostile liberal outlets had to try distracting the public from the egg on their faces by concocting a new conspiracy theory: that Trump might have leaked the tax form to MSNBC himself to deliberately make them look bad," Huckabee said.

"Granted, he surely knew they would scurry after any hint of a Trump scandal as mindlessly as a dog chases a firefly, but MSNBC hardly needs his help to look like partisan loons."
