Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 11, 2018

'How strange is it for you to sit here and compare the president to a mob boss?' George Stephanopoulos That's the question ABC's George Stephanopoulos asked James Comey in a teaser for an interview set to air Sunday night at 10 p.m. as a "20/20" special. A source told Axios that what the former FBI director had to say during that interview is "going to shock the president and his team" and "certainly add more meat to the charges swirling around Trump." The source added that the interview included information that's never been divulged before and left people in the room "stunned." Comey apparently answered every question.

Are folks not getting that this is all coordinated? Bannon/diGenova/Dobbs etc

Joe diGenova on Fox calls for Sessions to fire Rosenstein "tomorrow morning" and calls Comey a "dirty cop." (This is the segment the president wanted everyone to watch.)

So I guess we should expect the headlines on Monday to read "Trump in complete meltdown, launches missiles at everyone".

Ha ha. He's waiting for his buddies Assad and Vladimir to move their troops and weapons first. Maybe he's going to hit some rebels to curry favor too.

That was when you had some Rs willing to put country ahead of party. When Trump fires half the FBI Rs will say it's fake news and just Ds picking on Trump. Faux Snooze will say Mueller was a partisan who had it coming. And the circus will roll on.

Possibly, but I think most Americans will recognize the truth. Fox News can only convince a percentage of us, the rest of us find other sources of information and avoid Fox like the plague it is.

Honestly, I think a few of the Fox commentators will rebel and call out the President for it.

Its funny. I don't remember Clinton firing his special counsel...

"In an ABC promo, Stephanopoulos says Comey compared Trump to a mob boss.

According to the source:

The Comey interview left people in the room stunned -- he told George things that he's never said before.
Some described the experience as surreal. The question will be how to fit it all into a one-hour show.

Comey answered every question.

If anyone wonders if Comey will go there, he goes there."

While you obey your masters and watch Hannity dutifully. Hey, when your head is empty someone needs to tell you what you think. Right wing thinking = memorization of talking points.

What part of "Special Counsel" did you not understand? And firing DOJ lawyers is fine as long as they aren't the ones investigating him and it's not done for being from a different political party...which there isn't evidence to suggest it was. Now Bush's firing of DOJ lawyers on the hand, there was lots of evidence it was because they were liberal. Did they ever find the 3 MILLION missing emails about that during the Bush Administration?

How would we know:
1. A large number of studies showing Fox News misinforms viewers purposefully
2. The former Chairman and CEO admitting they do it intentionally
3. Not a single study showing Fox News educates its viewers better than CNN or MSNBC
4. People like you

If it's so outragious let it die on it's own like Air America did. People realized that they were so full of crap that even their last advertisers who sold catheters and suppositories dropped them. And away they went.

Oh, maybe because the ---- President of the United States formulates his domestic and foreign policy based on the opinions spouted on Fox? Turning the channel does not make the horrible policies driven by Fox News reporting go away.

So, how do you explain Trump approval is higher than o'bummer's was at the same time in his term? Are you saying that so many people watch Fox? and not cnn?

His approval rating is based on the electoral college. - the left

Hearing the "bomb shell" excerpts from the book. No real shockers.

Just shows Comey as a narcissistic and small man.

so? At least he has big hands.

And I guess it is one narcissist word (and notes and witnesses) against another (a well known Liar with no notes).

He is just showing that Trump was right to fire him. In fact should have done it sooner.

Comey is simply a disgruntled political hack.

This will be a lot like the Fire and Fury book, gone in a week.

And when it is all over, Comey will still be fired and Trump will still be President.

Jumping ahead 2-3 years...

Comey will still be a free man.

Humpy? Not so much.

If Humpy is still free it will be a miracle. By then he will still be so wrapped up in lawsuits and criminal trials he won't know which way it is to Russia anymore.
