Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, December 11, 2018

Donald Trump is, infamously, not the sort of man used to getting no for an answer. And while the frequent demurrals from candidates for administration jobs must have started to accustom the president to rejection, Nick Ayers's decision not to take the White House chief-of-staff position must still come as a bitter shock.

When those bottom feeders won't touch it, then we're in big trouble. I predict congress will have to step in soon.

As Steve Schmidt said this morning, "We've now identified the smartest person in the White House, and his name is Nick Ayers."

@#2 ... Omarosa ...

When I saw her name, I wondered what she's been up to lately. She's been busy, it seems. The other things happening must have been drowning her out, probably much to her dismay...

Omarosa claims the White House has fired the anonymous New York Times op-ed writer
November 14, 2018
theweek.com

...Remember that anonymous op-ed in The New York Times that sent shock waves through Washington in September? Its author was never publicly identified, but Omarosa Manigault Newman claims the Trump administration solved the mystery behind closed doors.

Manigault Newman, a former White House communications aide, told MSNBC Wednesday that she has heard "from my sources" that the Trump administration identified the op-ed writer and has "quietly removed them from the administration." She also said, citing "rumors," that the White House has been relatively quiet about the whole situation because of "how high-level that person is supposed to have been."...

Clever headline. Staff infection, ha!

As Derek points out, Individual 1 can't resist badmouthing everyone who works for him. Not exactly an enticement for a job that is difficult under any president, much less an undisciplined, vindictive clown.

For Trump, loyalty is a 1-way street.

He can't even get a 36 year old consultant to be his Chief of Staff. Just LOL.

Think about how he used and then discarded Chris Christie during the campaign. We've watched that movie how many times since then?

I honestly don't understand why more reasonable Republicans aren't supporting impeachment and an orderly handoff to Pence. This guy is not helping your cause.

The base still loves him. So much so that they'll primary out any politician that says anything in support of impeachment.

It's about respecting the results of the election. Let's see what Mueller comes up with.

Sorry. We don't respect the results of a fraudulent election manipulated for treasonous ends. (See also North Carolina)

We are taking our concession speeches back.

If Ayers is saying no, it means the writing is on the wall about the end of the Trump Administration.

If Mueller doesn't produce much then impeachment is a losing proposition IMO. Best bet is to use the House to contain the guy and focus on beating him in 2020.

Ayers wants to spend more time with his family and less time in a Federal prison.

@#21 ... Best bet is to use the House to contain the guy and focus on beating him in 2020. ...

You seem to basically agree with what fmr FBI Dir Comey said recently at the NYC 92nd Street Y.

Comey: Trump Impeachment Not the Best Answer for Country
www.ny1.com

...During the conversation, Comey said he is not sure what will happen with the release of memos from the investigation.

"I can't see what the end of the Mueller effort looks like. I don't know what form it will take, I don't know what they'll conclude, so I can't say in that respect. I can tell you that all of us should use every breath we have to make sure that the lying stops on January 20, 2021," Comey said.

When it comes to possibly removing Trump from office, Comey said that decision should be left to the American people.

"I hope Donald Trump is not removed from office by impeachment because it would let the country off the hook. And it would drive into the fabric of our nation a third of the people believing there was a coup. And we need a moment of inflection where we all get off the couch and say, 'That is not who we are,' and in a landslide rid ourselves of this attack on our values," Comey added.

He went on to say Democrats should work together to nominate a person best suited to defeat Trump in 2020. ...



It was an interesting interview.

Republicans don't respect the results of elections. They seek to avoid those results by lame-duck sessions that weaken the winners.

led my pony to the water but i couldn't make him drink
damn the information...trump doesn't like to think
if he did then he'd know, loyalty needs to be earned
no need to look far...to see the char
of past loyalties that he's already burned
they sign on the line and work for the crime, that we now call the president
they've come and they've gone, but it won't be long
before everyone has done come and went
