Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, September 10, 2017

Mike Allen: A Trump adviser says that after a tumultuous seven months in office, it had finally dawned on the president: "People really --- hate me." For someone who has spent his life lapping up adulation, however fake, it was a harsh realization. This is a man with an especially acute need for affirmation. This week's bear hug of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer opened Trump's eyes to one solution: Stop doing things that people hate, and start striking deals. Who knows if this will stick. But there's reason to think it might, according to Trump's friends and aides.

But we can't overstate the level of despair among Republicans. One person very close to Republican leadership told us: "He accepted a shakedown when he was holding all the cards. ... This is quite literally a guy who watches 'ER' trying to perform a surgery."

It's funny to see and hear the media gush over this.

He raised the debt limit. Just like everyone else always has.

The last 7 months still happened.

He may have come to the conclusion that he needs to play nice with Dems because there is an excellent chance that they will be responsible for making the decision to impeach him. It won't last, Drumpf has the attention span and wet diaper temper tantrums of a two-year-old. I have to say, General Kelley is doing a fine job of walling Drumpf off from the rest of the world. The daily headlines of national embarrassment have dropped to a few a week, but that might be the function of two thousand year storms hitting the US mainland back to back. I think the media and America are happy with some non-BLOTUS headlines for awhile. As long as Mueller continues his work, Drumpf will be front and center on the American media scene again before too long.

Seems like a no-brainer, but as it turns out, Donald had the list of "don't dos" upside down.

Coincidentally, this solves the mystery of S'OD LNOD at the bottom of the page...

The bar can't be low enough for Republicans and it can't be high enough for Democrats.

Trump has spent too much time thinking that others like him because of who he is and what he owns, and has given little thought to the prospect of people liking him because of what he DOES as president. Playing nice with others will not last long. In fact, the latest Trump Dump is taking place now, so he will place a finger in someone's eye in about 3,2,1...

The haters are just going to hate no matter what - this is the "change" that Obama brought with his group tagging mentality.

This will last only as long as General Kelly lasts, then Dolt 45 will be back in action.
