The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Mar. 15
Happy post-snow day, everyone! Hopefully, if you were working from home yesterday because of the blizzard, the return to the office today wasn't too jarring. It's hard to believe it's only Wednesday, as that snow day, plus all the crazy news this week has already seen, makes it seriously feel like it's about to be the weekend. But sadly, that's not the case, and we still have two more days to go....
But hey, being halfway through is something, at least. Before getting ready for the days ahead, catch up on all the news you might've missed from today, Mar. 15.
Donald Trump + Those Tax Returns
Last night, Rachel Maddow had everyone scrambling to find MSNBC when she announced that she had Trump's 2005 tax returns. The resulting news segment was controversial, to say the least, and the information from the returns, which stated that Trump paid $38 million in '05 taxes on an income of $150 million, was significant enough that the White House quickly issued a response. There are still plenty of questions about the tax returns, though, so here's hoping we get answers soon.
Pro Tip: If you're looking for a way to speak up against Trump, check out the fast-growing Ides of Trump campaign, which involves writing a postcard, labeling it with the hashtag, and sending it along to the White House.
Women's History + A New Museum
Ladies, get in formation. The first museum totally dedicated to women's history is opening in NYC this spring, and it's not to be missed. If you're shocked there isn't already a women's history museum around, well, you're not alone. But thankfully, we'll soon have this one to honor the lives of the many women who've paved the way for us.
