Scarborough said, “I mean, listen, his — I don’t think his supporters, I don’t think the Republican electorate is going to care. What is the responsibility?”

He continued, “If the Republicans want to release their speeches then I’ll release my speeches’, Hillary said and that seems very fair. With Donald Trump I’d say the same thing. You know, ‘If everybody wants to release their taxes then I’ll release them. But why should I?”

He added, “But let me ask you, though, Mitt Romney’s taxes were relevant because people wanted to say if he paid 14, 15, 16 percent. Why are Trump’s taxes relevant other than so people in New York City can dig through them who have been saying that he’s not worth $10 billion for a year and and just look at it for their own excitable interest?”
