One of the biggest mysteries surrounding the 2016 presidential election was over Donald Trump and his tax returns. Despite shielding them from the general public, millions of Americans are still demanding the president release his financial information.

Trump's taxes

When Donald Trump first announced his campaign for president back in June 2015, questions were quickly raised about the potential conflict of interest that he would bring to the table if he made it to the White House. While the initial reaction to Trump's candidacy was with doubt and speculation, he quickly gained stream with momentum that he carried to the Republican nomination, and eventually his general election win over Hillary Clinton.

Since that time, calls for the former host of "The Apprentice" to release his taxes have increased, and appeared to reach a fever pitch last month when MSNBC host Rachel Maddow revealed a portion of the president's 2005 returns. Maddow's release left much to be desired, which led to a nation-wide protest on Saturday calling for the tax returns in question. As reported by Mediaite on April 15, comedian sarah silverman was in attendance and decided to speak her mind.

During the "Tax March" in New York City on Saturday, thousands of protesters took to the streets to highlight the fact that Donald Trump is still hiding his tax returns. One of the highlighted speakers at the gathering was Sarah Silverman, who has made her thoughts known about the billionaire real estate mogul at various times in the past.

"Show us your f***ing taxes, you emotional child," Sarah Silverman said to the laughter and applause of those in attendance at the Tax March. "You like to be a superficial bully?" Silverman rhetorically asked the commander in chief, before adding, "here's one for you. You are a three at best." Silverman's rating is in reference to Donald Trump having rated women on a scale of one to ten in the past.

Not long after making her comments, Sarah Silverman was interviewed by MSNBC on the streets of New York City. "When you love America, when you love your country, you have to speak out and speak up," she said, before quoting Regina Spektor stating, "it's time to fight for our country." As expected, the White House has not offered a comment on the protest, but have said on more than one occasion that Donald Trump is not likely to release his tax returns anytime soon, citing a current audit from the Internal Revenue Service.
