Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, April 20, 2019

Trump has been adamant about discrediting the media because the media has discredited him. "I do it to discredit you all and demean you all, so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you," Trump told Lesley Stahl in 2016. His scorched-earth tactics have worked, to a point. Trump's war against journalism has energized his base and has powered his efforts to preemptively undermine the Mueller report. Now, the Mueller report is out, and the journalists who've spent the past several years reporting on Trump's conduct are looking a lot better than Trump himself.

Astonishing how many Trumpists are still saying the Mueller Report is Fake News while still saying it cleared him. Astonishing that Trump himself says that.

Funny how Trump's still sitting in office, and will be until his re-election, despite the DAILY re-assurances by people like Angry Zed that Trump's going to be jailed and chained. Do you guys realize, that if you took your daily predictions of Trump's demise as a batting average, you couldn't qualify for the Minor Leagues of the Clinically Brain-dead?

Funny how, while President Bucket of ---- SHOULD be impeached, arrested and thrown in jail, it will not happen. For many reasons, one of the most important of which is the implication of President Bucket of ---- being guilty of the crimes he committed.

Him being guilty, as he is, would mean the 2016 election was invalid, meaning his presidency is illegitimate, meaning all of the actions he has taken as President are illegitimate, ex. 2 Supreme Court picks.

The damage to our democracy would be immense, perhaps fatal.

That is why President Bucket of ---- was not and will not be found to have conspired with the Russians.

... Journalists Were Right. ...

For the large part (but not completely), I agree with that statement.

The real-time reporting that was done (most of which by the Washington Post and the NY Times) which, at the time was called "fake news" by Pres Trump, has turned out to have been largely confirmed by Mr Mueller's report.

Indeed, and quite egregiously, what has turned out to contain "fake news" was what was uttered from the official twitter feed of the White House and the news podium at the White House.

Not hypocrisy, willfull ignorance. They know full well what the truth is. They ignore it so their side can "win" even if the nation burns down because of it

What do you find so funny?

Why do I notice a pattern forming of supporters of Pres Trump who seem to be scared -------- about discussing anything related to the Muller Report?

What are they (what are you) so afraid of?

The bit about team Trump colluding or conspiring with Russian agents was not correct and was widely reported. The only one that siphoned funds to Russian agents was in connection with the Steele dossier, which curiously, did not even warrant mention in the Mueller report. But anyway #impeach45

Mueller's report absolutely exonerates Trump and anyone associated with him of conspiring with Russia to affect the outcome of the election.

That narrative has been reported breathlessly for over 2 years and this report absolutely eviscerates it.

The MSM has egg on their smug faces. Again.

The non-crime collusion? No it doesn't. You've got the White House spin on this. Why?

The media has been astonishingly spot-on with the reporting they've done. That's why so little in the Report was a surprise.

The MSM will be what saves your ass as well as mine, JEFF.

I wish you were this rabid about how Hillary broke the law with classified emails on a server that wasnt DOD (That's a fact BTW, not fake news).

Did she give it to the Russians?

Trump accepted illegal help from the Russians. The only reason its not collusion is because there is no evidence he coordinated with them apparently.

HIllary testified in front of a hostile congress for 11 hours under oath. Trump couldnt do that for 11 seconds.

Ain't America wonderful sporky??

WE get to rant and rave as loud and long as we want against our (p)resident. And not be disappeared.

Yup...Trumpy is in office... but... he doesn't seem very happy about that. Looks to me like he CAN'T leave now.

If he loses this election his retirement package is most likely PRISON.

Yup. America, what a country!!

Be honest.

You would be apoplectic if this was a report about a 2 year investigation of Obama.

Mueller's report absolutely exonerates Trump and anyone associated with him of conspiring with Russia to affect the outcome of the election.

But, it does not exonerate Humpy Trumpy from cooperating with Russia. (collusion/conspiracy by another name)

He cooperated like a good Mob Boss would.

And it definitely does not exonerate him from Obstruction of Justice or Abuse of Power.
