Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, May 20, 2017

Donald Trump and his senior staffers were headed across the Atlantic when news broke that the president had trash-talked former FBI director James Comey in a meeting with Russian government officials -- a meeting in which Trump reportedly promised the Kremlin more flexibility in their relationship with "crazy" Comey out of the picture. ... Trump's repeated media missteps have frustrated even longtime supporters. "Every day he looks more and more like a complete moron," said one senior administration official who also worked on Trump's campaign.

David C. Gomez, a former FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge, said Trump's comments demonstrated a profound inability to grasp the potential consequences of his words.

"In terms of potential criminal activity, it's amateur night at the White House," Gomez told The Daily Beast. "These guys -- and Trump especially -- don't know how to not implicate themselves."

"On a big case like this, the ideal thing would be a wiretap on your number one subject," Gomez added. "But in this case, you don't need a wiretap. He just comes right out and says it."

I just read an article on Alternet that made a fairly persuasive case for early-stage Alzheimer's.

The prospect of dementia has been raised before, but I've resisted buying into it until now. But I am beginning to wonder. I mean, is it possible that someone could be this corrupt and this stupid, this stunningly oblivious to the consequences? Dementia may be the charitable explanation, but it might also be true.

Naw, most CEO's and executive types are corrupt by their very nature. The CEO of my company has committed insider trading 4 times in the past 3 years and nothing has been done. The "C" in CEO stands for CRIMINAL.

If he has dementia, who would've guessed that his doctor's report was complete crap during the campaign?

Dementia seems reasonable after doing coke for that many years. I'm surprised he doesn't have a colostomy bag.

It's not that Trump isn't or shouldn't be frightening. But it's conspicuous that our media landscape is now a perfect Ailes-ian dystopia, cleaved into camps of captive audiences geeked up on terror and disgust. The more scared and hate-filled we are, the more advertising dollars come pouring in, on both sides. Matt Taibbi
