Right-winger Matt Drudge, who has long been a booster of President Donald Trump, seems to be concerned about the long-term consequences of the president’s “crusade” against the “fake news” media.

After the president tweeted on Wednesday that all “negative” news about him and his administration constituted “fake” news, Drudge wrote on Twitter that he feared Trump’s statements might one day be used as excuses to dramatically crack down on the free press.

“I fear the future result of Trump’s crusade on ‘fake news’ will be licensing of all reporters,” he wrote. “[Dems already floated this in the senate pre-Trump.] The mop up on this issue is going to be excruciating…”

Despite the fact that Drudge has typically been sympathetic in his own writing on Trump, Trump supporters angrily lashed out at him and told him that if Trump or some future president shut down the free press, the free press itself would be to blame.

Check out some of the responses below.

Trump ‘engaged in incitement to domestic terrorism’ — no wonder he’s losing Michigan: Heilemann

What will Trump do between now and Election Day, and what is he willing to do if he loses on Election Day, asked MSNBC's John Heilemann when talking to host Nicolle Wallace on Monday.

Wallace noted that on Sunday night, Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared on "60 Minutes," where he explained he couldn't even take a walk with his wife without having security because of the attacks he's getting from the right-wing.

"Genuinely, as we hurdle into the final two weeks where we think that all of the October surprises have to be played out -- we've had them all," Heilemann began. "But given the way 2020 has gone, I'm assuming we'll have at least maybe a Martian invasion between now and election day. I think -- it never hurts to remind people of the context here."
