Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, December 03, 2018

"President Trump took to Twitter Monday morning, haranguing special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and witnesses to his ongoing Russia investigation," writes The Washington Post's Deanna Paul. "His tweets have become a common morning occurrence, particularly in recent weeks. But legal experts are calling Monday's missives a newsworthy development that amounts to evidence of obstructing justice."

Impossible. Trump and his merry band of deplorable sycophant followers claim to be all about law and order.

Pres Trump was elected in order to push the norms aside.

He is succeeding in doing so, mainly so because, I suspect, it is easy to destroy than to build.

OH NO HE'S CROSSED THE LINE THIS TIME.

Up till now he's just been bat-poop crazy, corrupt, rude, racist, sexist, confused, obviously suffering from dementia, lightly obstructy and gently colludey.

That interview with Roger Stone tells a tale. Clearly that's where Trump draws at least some of his craven inspiration.

Poor Scott Free. Trump want's him to get Cohen's wife and father in law off.

Sure they are; as long as the perps are minority and poor.

He's crossed a line that republicans don't believe exists.

They don't believe in lines. I can't imagine how they live their personal lives.

Interesting analysis. Team Clinton was far worse when it came to bashing Ken Starr but Clinton being a lawyer knew where the line needed to be drawn from a legal standpoint.

Define worse.

Otherwise your statement is internally inconsistent.

Yes, they did attack Starr. But I wouldn't say it was "far worse". They definitely were more 'professional' about it in comparison to Trump and Co. And frankly when Hillary called it a "vast right wing conspiracy" she wasn't far off. The one and ONLY thing Starr produced was Clinton lied under oath about having sex with Lewinsky. In contrast, compare that to what Meuller already has accomplished in regard to his investigation.

And this is another perfect example of how Liberals are ruining the Democrat party. The arrogance, smugness, and ridiculous relational logic being used just to try to hold a higher moral ground to justify accusations clearly rooted in hate and partisan opinions with no logical tie to the source material is astounding. It's gotten so transparent that people have to wonder if people like this author actually read their own material. My guess is her boss is probably the one who wanted the story and forced her to exaggerate her points to make it a sensationalized hype piece for Liberals. Or else she really wanted to write garbage like this, which would just be a shame.

Dumtake, liberals don't try at all to have the moral high ground; we have it because conservatives traded morals for "winning" a game that exists only in their primitive minds.

Someone dropped way too much acid during the Clinton years apparently.

The things you can make up and force yourself to believe are incredible. When you can provide some evidence of such "far worse" things, let us know.

Ken Starr was attacked relentlessly by Team Clinton and their PR team also known as the mainstream media. Trump's attacks on Mueller have been less frequent and more clumsy by comparison. Team Clinton was smart enough not to cross the line into potential illegality over their attacks. Trump on the other hand....

JJ, example please

The relentless attacks on Clinton were personal in nature and the public rebuked the Republicans in Congress until they threw in the towel.

The relentless attacks on Trump certainly include personal issues important only to Donny and Melania, but they also include serious matters such as refusing to comply with his oath of office, putting personal interests before our national interests and being too lazy and stupid to be in the position he's in. No one could say that about Nixon. I blame this calamity of the failure of Obama to force change which would have given desperate people hope. Obama would not even bring the topic of change up, except during campaigns.

Show us the attacks which are somehow equal to or worse than Trump's attacks.

That's it. Just give us some evidence.

Saying they were worse was a poor word choice.

What I mean was they were more frequent and prolific and had a much bigger echo chamber than Trump's rants about 'witch hunt'. The attacks themselves weren't worse though. There were just more of them. I apologize for my poor articulation.

no kidding

remember when OBAMA called his own birthday party a "Hip-Hop BBQ"?

speaking of echo chambers

remember when rush limbough said that his "hope for the Obama presidency" was "I hope he fails."

how about the time OBAMA was was a Marxist. And a fascist. And a Nazi. And a Maoist. And a Bolshevik. And a Trotskyite. all at the same time

or the time Beck said Obama's aim was "destroying our economic system as we currently know it."

how about the time Obama's party was trying to create a "political dictatorship" and He was embracing "the agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood" and preparing to "sell us out" to the Islamic world.

and lets not forget all that birther nonesense

Robert Mueller selected for his staff lawyers who on a previous case were criticised by a judge for the worst misconduct and mishandling of a prosecution he had ever seen. Why are the tweets a suprise?

WHich part of the constitution did clinton shred in order to protect himself from the investigation? Who did he fire to commit obstruction of justice.

Every day you say you don't support trump. Then every day you post pathetic trump deflections like these.
