Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) talked with Bill Hemmer this morning about the release by MSNBC of a few pages of President Trump's 2005 tax return.

The tax documents showed Trump made $153 million in 2005 and paid $36.5 million in income taxes ($38 million in total taxes).

The big reveal was touted by Rachel Maddow on Twitter before her show, but the documents were far from a bombshell. 

The president later blasted the report as "fake news," and Paul agreed, questioning why this leak was touted by the left. 

And he added that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) paid an effective tax rate of 13.5 percent a few years ago, far below Trump's 2005 rate of 25 percent.

"Since Senator Sanders is such a good socialist, I think he'd want to pay his fair share. I'm expecting news any day that he's gonna send a couple hundred thousand into the IRS so he can pay his fair share," said Paul.

Trump has steadfastly refused to release his full tax returns since beginning his presidential campaign, a departure from his modern-day White House predecessors.

Watch the full interview above, as Sen. Paul also discusses his opposition to "Trumpcare."
