Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, October 29, 2017

President Trump unleashed a tweetstorm on Sunday about the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, praising Republican unity, rejecting claims of "collusion" and urging an investigation into Hillary Clinton's possible links to Moscow. " ... "The Dems are using this terrible (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics, but the R's are now fighting back like never before. There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out. DO SOMETHING!," he said. ... Trump's twitter explosion comes as CNN reported that special counsel Robert Mueller, who's investigating Russian interference in the election and any links to the Trump campaign, is expected to announce his first indictments in the case as soon as Monday.

I agree that this is Trump feeling the pressure. What does he want someone to do? One can guess, and shudder.

Imploring your followers to "DO SOMETHING!" doesn't seem to suggest the calm or confidence that goes with knowledge of one's innocence.

Trump is impulsive, and arrogant. It's possible that he never covered his tracks that well. One reason this is proceeding so quickly.

A Trump meltdown? LOL ~ you ain't seen nothing yet.

I'm waiting for a full psychotic episode that can be seen from outer-space.

Never-trumper globalist neo-con who tried to throw the election to Rodham. Nobody cares what he says other than the republican good-old-boys club.

Kristol did have something interesting to say when asked why the Iraqi War deal went south.

He said "We just needed someone a little smarter."

Putin is probably thinking the same thing.

Dems despised Bill Kristol until he became a Clintonite. Now he's even more loved than the go-to progressive website, Teen Vogue.

Loved? Followed? Nah. Someone I read on twitter posted Kristol's tweet, and I thought it well-expressed a thought I'd had myself.

Quoting one tweet, or a series of tweets, or an article by someone doesn't mean you endorse everything they think, say and do. In this case, I thought the Kristol tweet was an apropos response to Trump's tweet.

Wow. Null outing his reading habits.

His hero Trump is pointing away from the curtain and telling people not to look at the man behind it.... him.

And all Null can do is whine about the fact that even some rwingers get it.

You're completely wrong, Dems like me will never love Kristol. I despise him. He has blood on his hands.

That's true. Kristol was the conduit between Israel and those 47 Senators who signed that ill-conceived letter trying to torpedo Obama's nuclear accords. Kristol was so confident at the time that Jeb Bush was going to win the presidency that he had Tom Cotton all lined up to be the V.P. in exchange for spearheading the drive in the Senate to commit treason. Remember when Tom Cotton went to Israel and came home with a million bucks in his pocket.

No Dems "loved" Bill Kristol. Kristol is a Cheney neo-con through and through. I think his day has come and gone but he's still a snake in the grass nonetheless. His only redeming quality right now is that he's anti-Trump which is why he's showing up as a panelist on liberal talk/news progrms like Morning Joe.

Don't be disarmed by his charming smile. He'd take your throat out in a minute if we ever get another neo-con in the White House who would fight a proxy war in Iran on behalf of Israel.

"Don't be disarmed by his charming smile."

I don't find anything about him charming, he is a murderer. There are thousands of people who lost their lives because of him and GWB. I don't care about the pretty pictures GWB paints nor his comments to the press dissing Trump. He and Kristol and Cheney are murderers who did it, not because Saddam had provoked them, GWB admitted while Gov. of TExas that he was going to be a war time president because that would give him the power to privatize SS. May he rot in hell along with Kristol and Cheney.

"Dems despised Bill Kristol until he became a Clintonite"

wrong.. we still despise him... and many of us really don't like cliton either... we just think she was way way way better than the alternatives. Many of us liked a different lefty candidate more but still thought Trump was dangerous

idiot dotards confuse "lesser of two evils" for butt kissing.. wrong.. only republicans turn into butt kissers of their candidates.

for people that hate the government, boy do conseratives lick the rear ends of their political party favorites.

Who do you think will lead that fight? Trumpians? No. They want Trump to be appointed dictator. The normal GOP-ists? No. They want to hide until someone else does something, so they don't have to actually take a stand against a fellow GOP-er.

I'm sorry, but i see no path for any major uprising, no matter how much evidence is amassed.
