Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, October 11, 2018

In a crucial period with the midterms less than a month away, some in the White House are worried that the president is losing a megaphone to his base. President Donald Trump loves to brag about ratings, but he's not getting them anymore. As he's ramped up his rally schedule ahead of the midterms, viewership numbers for the raucous prime-time events have been roughly similar to -- sometimes dipping below -- Fox News' regular programming, and the network has recently stopped airing most evening events in full.

"One senior White House official was unsure why the network would decide to cut away from presidential rallies, saying officials planned "to look into that" and wouldn't be surprised if White House communications director Bill Shine, a former Fox News executive, was in touch with former colleagues about the trend.

The loss of national coverage is equally, if not more, concerning to the candidates on whose behalf Trump is traveling the country."

"This is Corky reporting, embedded in Trump's hair"

The DNC continues it's daily coverage of Trump, to mask that moldy smell that zero policy leaves behind.

The novelty is gone and reality is setting in.

Even the Kardashians find Trump annoying.

Ironic, Trump just whined about Democrats' policies in an Op-Ed.

Fact Checkers showed he lied about their policies position.

On another thread, Sheeple is explaining how Dem policies won't work.

And here's Sheeple pretending they don't exist.

Seriously, please get help.

Still no Dem policy to discuss or promote.

Attack the Trump. Attack the Schism. Attack each other.

The only thing you can't attack is the job of creating policy.

LOL. Maybe we should be talking about emails or Benghazi. Plenty of Dem policies to discuss and promote, but that doesn't qualify as news.

That's not the entirety of it. There's this competition for rating over who can be the most shallow.

Right now the Kardashians are holding onto a slight lead but Trump is closing fast. Kanye West successfully moved in for the kill with his 'who's your daddy' comedy/tragedy routine ~~ and a little snort of some free cocaine during the rehearsal. West was high as a kite.
