When MSNBC host Rachel Maddow released two pages of President Donald Trump's 2005 tax return, many expected him to be angry.

And while the president did take a swipe at MSNBC:

The reality was that her “bombshell” turned out to be a bit of a dud. Even Geraldo, who once delivered the disappointing contents of Al Capone's vault — a gin bottle and an old road sign — took a few jabs at Maddow, saying he'd passed the mantle on to her.

But if the president's response was predictable, Donald Trump Jr. delivered the unexpected — sincere thanks:

The two pages that Maddow released (which revealed income of $153 million and taxes in the amount of $38 million) flew in the face of the ongoing media narrative that President Trump was either not as wealthy as he had claimed to be or that he had avoided paying his taxes.

And Trump Jr. noticed:

No, he really noticed:

And he thought, what would make America greater than a political cartoon documenting the whole mess?

Which he received...

Trump Jr., who responded in similar fashion to a recent SNL sketch poking fun at his brother, has proven on a number of occasions to be willing to poke fun at himself, as well.
