Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, September 07, 2018

Many Republicans on Capitol Hill and in the White House privately agree with the Trump administration official who went rogue in The New York Times. They also say the anonymous anti-Trump screed was a tremendous setback when it comes to curbing the president's worst impulses.

Seems a bit, er, tardy of GOPhers in the Senate to just now become concerned about Trump being crazy and paranoid.

I'd hope the GOP deals with Trump when he finally starts chewing the furniture but I think that will just make them more afraid.

Zed, I gave you a funny flag, but these days it's not all that funny anymore. I honestly worry about how he might respond to the op-ed. Public humiliation and disloyalty are like pouring gasoline on the dumpster fire known as Trump.

The only way the GOP knows how to deal with their problems is through payment of hush money, often through campaign contributions.

That won't work on Trump.

Not only will this op-ed increase his haphazard behavior, it'll make it harder for anyone to stop him because now he knows to look out for that.

The only beneficial purpose i see to this op-ed is if it angers Trump so much that he ends up suffering some sort of physical or emotional breakdown that renders him unable to show up to work.

"They also say the anonymous anti-Trump screed was a tremendous setback when it comes to curbing the president's worst impulses."

In that case, I think Trump wrote it.

Trump vowed to have the most transparent presidency ever, just like the last president said he would do.

Obama has his faults, as all humans do, and I was disappointed in this particular aspect of his presidency. But to compare his behavior to Trump's across-the-board insanity is absurd.

You can make Trump more crazy?! Okay. Whatever.

Quite possibly, that was the intended, underlying goal of the op-ed.

There's a good documentary on Putin and his antidemocratic methods that he has unleashed over the decades.

It's called Active Measures by Jack Bryan.

Trump is a secondary factor in the film, but that might be more accurate of a portrayal in the grand scheme of this thing called Trump's presidency.
