Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, May 11, 2018

Republican strategist Steve Schmidt jumped to the defense of John McCain -- whose presidential campaign he ran in 2008 -- after a horrific comment ostensibly made by White House aide Kelly Sadler. ... "Kelly Sadler, the WH Aide who joked about and revelled in joy about the fact that John Mccain is approaching the hour that will come for us all is a disgrace. She is vile, cruel, and indecent. She is a perfect fit for this loathsome cabal that is rotten from Trump down. ... I pray a righteous rage and anger is swelling in the hearts of every decent person in this country around the desecration of our country and values by team Trump. Let us repudiate these terrible people. Let's do it with joy and gratitude for the privilege."

Excellent rant. I feel his fury at what is happening to our country.

But, it will never be seen on Fox News. Except in out-of-context snippets.

Nothing is more pathetic than republicans who helped create trump now whine about the monster they created.

Schmidt helped mccain during the election when mccain picked palin, and brought the "we want a mentally stupid leader!" elements of the republican party out of the closet.

It was long hard to imagine that there could be a worse party for the American people than the Republicans, but now we've seen them made look almost decent compared to the Trumpublicans they have become.

Why does "that person" still have a job supported by tax payers? Is this what an "Aide" does?

While I happen to agree completely and absolutely with Mr Schmidt in this instance....

Mr Schmidt is a "never Trump" person who is usually invited to be a talking head when a Republican strategist is needed to criticize Pres Trump. He sometimes leans a bit too far over the tips of his skis.

On the other hand, sometimes I think his disgust and outrage should be more prevalent among the Republicans.

Steve Schmidt was a regular on MSNBC shows before Trump ran. He's not just trotted out for stuff like this.

It's a shame there are so few Republicans like him. Most have openly sold their souls to Trump or refuse to speak out against him.

"It's a shame there are not more never Trumpers like him."

I totally agree.

Thanks for the correction. I was not aware of that.

I don't always agree with Schmidt or McCain but he NAILED it.
Schmidt is one of those few republicans (of late) that put country before party.
