Top conservative media figure ‘exasperated’ by Trump — and now he’s ‘breaking out popcorn’ for impeachment: CNN

Published

on

Matt Drudge, the conservative media icon who rose to fame for helping expose former President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, has been notably less willing over the past few weeks to defend President Donald Trump.

CNN’s Oliver Darcy reports that Drudge in recent days “has spotlighted an overwhelming amount of negative news for the Trump White House,” which is a marked shift from the positive spin that his Drudge Report website has put on most of Trump’s first term.

A source described as “close” to Drudge tells CNN that the right-wing media mogul has become “exasperated” by Trump and is “reacting to changing circumstances” in the news cycle.

This person also tells CNN that Drudge may feel nostalgia for his early days when he helped lead the push for Clinton’s impeachment.

“Impeachment is where Matt Drudge entered,” they said. “This is a great story. And Drudge is breaking out the popcorn.”

John Ziegler, a conservative who was an occasional guest host on Drudge’s old radio show, tells CNN that Drudge simply loves seeing the world fall apart.

“Matt Drudge loves chaos,” he said. “And impeachment is chaos.”

Donald Trump is dumb — so dumb he literally suggested on live television that scientists should explore injecting household cleaners into people's lungs to cure the coronavirus. But due to what appears to be a serious and undiagnosed personality disorder — his niece Mary Trump, who is a clinical psychologist, suggests it's likely narcissism or sociopathy — Trump managed to stumble backwards into a strategy that works well with the 24-hour cable news ecosystem of national politics. Actually, "strategy" may be too strong a word, but it's inarguable that Trump's short attention span, impulsive nature and all-consuming corruption have meant a constant deluge of scandals and outrages, with each one knocking the last one out of the headlines.

Trump issues new threat to schools if they refuse to reopen in the fall despite deadly pandemic

Published

on

President Donald Trump is doubling down on his threat to cut funding from schools that decided to remain closed this fall during the deadly novel coronavirus pandemic.

Writing on Twitter, the president appeared to walk back his own administration's efforts to walk back his earlier threats to cut off funding for schools that don't reopen on schedule.

"Now that we have witnessed it on a large scale basis, and firsthand, Virtual Learning has proven to be TERRIBLE compared to In School, or On Campus, Learning," the president wrote. "Not even close! Schools must be open in the Fall. If not open, why would the Federal Government give Funding? It won’t!!!"
