Reporter Behind President’s Leaked Tax Returns Says Melania Trump Did ‘Sleazy Porn’

(Updated)

BY:

The journalist behind President Donald Trump's leaked tax returns from 2005 said First Lady Melania Trump did "sleazy porn" during an appearance Tuesday on MSNBC.

David Cay Johnston provided MSNBC's Rachel Maddow with the leaked documents and later went on "Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell" to discuss the story further. O'Donnell noted that it was odd for someone with Trump's wealth to report wages and salary income.

"It could be hers. His wife was a model," Johnston said.

"She's on here, but she was never at that league of that business," O'Donnell responded.

"She did do very sleazy porn," Johnston added.

Maddow, who was also on the show, did not like Johnston's remark.

"Hey, hey, hey," she warned.

O'Donnell appeared to ignore the comment.

Update March 16, 11:10 A.M.: This post was updated to reflect that David Cay Johnston said "sleazy porn," not "sneaky porn," as was originally written.
