Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, May 14, 2018

It's been 362 days since Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign. Since that day, President Trump has complained/kvetched/vented about the Mueller probe approximately 7,240 times. That may be somewhat exaggerated but only somewhat so, according to a new piece in The Washington Post detailing a year in the Mueller probe.

Here's the key excerpt:

"The President vents to associates about the FBI raids on his personal attorney Michael Cohen -- as often as "20 times a day," in the estimation of one confidant -- and they frequently listen in silence, knowing little they say will soothe him.

Trump gripes that he needs better "TV lawyers" to defend him on cable news and is impatient to halt the "witch hunt" that he says undermines his legitimacy as President."

First, "TV lawyers"!

But, more importantly -- 20 times a day! .

Trump thinks that this is going to be decided by popular opinion; by TV lawyers... which is where Rudy belongs. It's the Republican preference for perception over reality played out as alt facts.

Problem for Trump will be when reality comes crashing down on him in the form of the Special Prosecutor and the rule of law in court and the Congress, not TV lawyers on Fox and Fiends.

There in lies the difference between reality television and reality.

"That may be somewhat exaggerated..."

...Or wholly fabricated.

I mean, what's the difference anymore? This is what the MSM asshats have become.

Tump's pant leg the size of toddler head.
Melania slapped hand.
"Did the president use protection? Did he tell you he loves you?"
Chaos. Chaos. CHAOS in WH!!

We need single-payer/medicare for all. Wage Inequality reform. Immigration/Employer reforms. Infrastructure. Veterans care. Mental health system. Homelessness. Opioid epidemic solutions.
Progressive liberal leaders should be on liberal media, discussing how to make it happen and how to pay for it 24/7.

Instead, we get this.... continuing the stupidity - "But, more importantly -- 20 times a day!"

This article is obviously front page news.

"Melania slapped hand."

That was awkward. She has done that several times now. And she sleeps in a separate bed.

That has got to be seriously awkward for the Alpha Trump.

"We need single-payer/medicare for all. Wage Inequality reform. Immigration/Employer reforms. Infrastructure. Veterans care. Mental health system. Homelessness. Opioid epidemic solutions."

I am sure that since they are in total control of the Federal Government Republicans will get right to work on that.

"And she sleeps in a separate bed."

Good point, Donner. Front page material.

Hopefully, a future episode of CNN with Wolf Blitzer will do an entire hour on it.

I never imagined that Bill and Hillary ever shared a bed after Arkansas governorship.

Trumplethinskin has the presidency he ran on. His campaign was about smearing name calling bluster. He's a pig being treated like a pig.

the left needs to stop being nice to the pigs... they're pigs!!!

And what is different about them from virtually all of our previous Presidents going back decades?

"stroking his ego" came to mind, but that has to be in the hundreds of times per day...

"Gish gallop" is a technique used during debating that focuses on overwhelming one's opponent with as many arguments as possible, without regard for accuracy or strength of the arguments.

The term was coined by Eugenie C. Scott and named after the creationist Duane T. Gish, who used the technique frequently against science-based opponents on the topic of evolution.

It has been said that Bill only slept on the couch for a 3-4 months in 1998 during the height of the Lewinsky saga.
