Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 11, 2017

In recent days, I spoke with a half dozen prominent Republicans and Trump advisers, and they all describe a White House in crisis as advisers struggle to contain a president who seems to be increasingly unfocused and consumed by dark moods. Trump's ire is being fueled by his stalled legislative agenda and, to a surprising degree, by his decision last month to back the losing candidate Luther Strange in the Alabama Republican primary. "Alabama was a huge blow to his psyche," a person close to Trump said. "He saw the cult of personality was broken." According to two sources familiar with the conversation, Trump vented to his longtime security chief, Keith Schiller, "I hate everyone in the White House! There are a few exceptions, but I hate them!" (A White House official denies this.) Two senior Republican officials said Chief of Staff John Kelly is miserable in his job and is remaining out of a sense of duty to keep Trump from making some sort of disastrous decision.

One sits and shakes one's head in dread and wonder.

Seeing Trump operate puts me in touch with just how tough most Americans are every day of their lives.

Donald's snowflake.

The republicans are going to have to impeach this guy before he kills us all. I don't think he'll last until the democrats can be voted in.

Could it be that he's never experienced real pressure for his entire life? Keep him away from kitchen knives and handguns.

Pressure? yes. An honest assessment of his ability? Not until recently...

I'm just waiting for him to pull a Caligula and appoint a horse to his Cabinet... well, wait, it's already full of jackasses.

My father died after a series of strokes. At one point, I discovered him washing his hands under the InstaHot faucet. 160*.

At that point he still had more sense than Donald.

Did our billionaire elitist President think it's less lonely at the top or something?

I wonder if he thought being President would earn him real respect, the kind money can't buy.

The guy needs psychiatric care. If ever there was a case for mental health reform Trump could be the spark.

Hmmm. Methinks those who stay around Trump fear only one thing--a Pence presidency...

So who's tired of all this whining? Oh, you thought Trump said he'd do some much winning you'd get tired of the winning? No!! He said whining. Fake news!

Trump would never have claimed this unless he had evidence and proof he hates everyone in the WH

How can anyone be surprised? He's running the Presidency just like he ran his campaign.

Trump can't handle pressure, failure or the truth. Some of us already knew that.

I never thought I would agree with Trump on anything but guess what?

I hate everyone in the White House too!

Trump, take the easy way out, like you always do:
QUIT!
