Drudge report pissed about trump rigging polls

After the 2016 debate with other Republican primary contenders, Drudge held an online poll for their readers that showed Trump won by 64 percent. Ted Cruz only scored 18 percent and Marco Rubio got 13 percent.

“Trump has won the Drudge Report’s post debate [sic] poll numerous times since the first GOP primary debate last August,” the right-wing site Breitbart.com wrote Feb. 2016.

Trump even bragged about winning so many online polls on Twitter after his Sept. 2016 debate with Hillary Clinton.

Non-online polls, like the one done by Public Policy Polling, showed a stark contrast. According to those, Clinton won the debate 51 percent to Trump’s 40 percent. In another poll by CNN/ORC, Clinton won to the tune of 62 percent to Trump’s 27 percent.

Internet pummels Trump for frantic demand to investigate Obama instead: ‘This is not the tweet of an innocent man’

President Donald Trump jealously raged against Barack Obama's post-presidency business deals, which includes a production agreement with Netflix -- and other social media users ridiculed his apparent envy.

Trump questioned that deal and others in a pair of tweets complaining about an impeachment inquiry launched against him last week by the House Judiciary Committee, and he suggested Congress look at Obama's business since he left the White House.

....work that way. I have a better idea. Look at the Obama Book Deal, or the ridiculous Netflix deal. Then look at all the deals made by the Dems in Congress, the “Congressional Slush Fund,” and lastly the IG Reports. Take a look at them. Those investigations would be over FAST!

Is the Trump administration squelching a whistleblower — and a major scandal?

Published

on

America's system of government has always worked on the honor system. With so few Senate-confirmed Cabinet and federal agency heads, and so many “acting” officials working in the Trump administration, people who are constantly forced to audition for permanent positions are now under tremendous pressure to protect a president hellbent on breaking every norm of good governance. Now a new possible political scandal could be brewing in the Trump administration that tests the loyalty of these “acting” officials — pitting their allegiance to the nation against their desire to impress their boss.
