Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 10, 2019

Anti-Trump strategist and pundit Steve Schmidt is feeling the heat from all sides since his client, Starbucks founder Howard Schultz, announced on 60 Minutes that he might run for president as an independent. The reaction from Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans was overwhelmingly negative, putting Schmidt on the defensive and costing him his MSNBC punditry perch as long as he is advising Schultz on entering the race in 2020.

Words Matter launched last August as the center-right's answer to Pod Save America, the progressive podcast launched by alums of the Obama administration. At the time, Schmidt told Vanity Fair that he thought the conservative movement, and by extension the Republican Party, which he'd left two months earlier, had become "a racket." Every episode begins with a quote from Daniel Patrick Moynihan, another of Levine's heroes, that "Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but not their own facts."

Schultz needs to man-up and admit he's running as a con. So does everyone else who steps on to the campaign trail for the sole purpose of attacking Dems.

I had High hopes for SCHMIDT, he hates Trump, supporting a 3rd party candidate won't help defeat Orange Adolf.

Schultz is probably paying him enough that his pundit career is less important than his political strategist career.
