Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

To judge from the recent leak of its internal poll numbers, Donald Trump's 2020 campaign has a lot of ground to make up -- and Trump family members have already been sounding alarms that Republican mega donors aren't stepping up to close the gap.

The Mercer family got what they needed. Now they run Trump.

"Republican mega donors aren't stepping up to close the gap"

That won't matter, but televangelists are going to take a hit when Trump really starts begging.

This is really good news for the country. I distinctly remember Rebekah Mercer emphatically saying she wanted Trump to "destroy the establishment" and she would pay "any amount of money" to get Trump elected.

Well, as they say, fools and their money are soon parted. Much like all of Trump's supporters, (Koch Industries went bye-bye, too) Trump has been a dismal failure. They fell for a con by a con-man. Oh gee, who could have know? LOL

How long before Sheldon Adelson follows suit?

If Trump the stable genius ever learned the definitions of "reciprocal" and "reciprocity," greed and ego soon reared its ugly head to reveal the real Donald J. as the self serving bastard he's always been.

Now isn't that a big kick in the tushy!

"With their ties to Steve Bannon, Breitbart, and Cambridge Analytica, Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah were superstars last cycle. "

Shadow President Bannon doesn't have influence? Breitbart conspiracy loons aren't in control?

Mega-R special interest money isn't an influence on Trump? What talking points will Dems come up with now?

With the Russia collusion hoax and Pooty's puppet meme just a bitter memory,

Fake News will be working OT to manufacture the next rage mob viagra moment.

Not really, we still have Trump's infantile "Terrible Twos" petulance to rag on. He certainly keeps that ammunition flowing.

Not to mention the expanding threat of impeachment hanging over his head like the Sword of Damocles. Pelosi's timing is going to be impeccable.

Then there's his poll numbers which are taking a nose dive and sucking all the oxygen out of his re-election news cycle.

Then there's Trump's kinky relationships with the worst despots on the planet. That's always a fun conversation.

And certainly not last, are those copious leaks coming out of Trump's WH (like water over Niagara Falls) that are spiking Trump's paranoia meter into the red zone.

As for blaming liberals for Trump' failures, we couldn't do it without his generous contributions to his own downfall.

Another possibility is that they know they can run the ad campaign for cheaper using dark money and their technology.

"Just ignore that piece of s---. He isn't looking for open, honest discussion."

I'm aware of that. But Sheeple's posts are a useful tool which allows others, such as myself, to throw open the shutters and let the sunshine in. I don't use Sheeple as a debate partner ~ but rather as a depth finder that gives me a fair idea of how deep Trump is sinking into his own bottomless pit of muck.

If you've ever been stuck in muck, you know that spinning your wheels only buries you deeper.

"the Mercers put all their cards on Ted Cruz. The source recalled that Robert invited Kellyanne Conway, who was then working for a pro-Cruz super PAC, to his Florida mansion and told her to "beat Trump!" "

I didn't like these people before but the more I learn about them makes me hate them more. I honestly do hate them and they richly deserve the hatred of most Americans.+.

Putting all their cards on the table for another nutcase like Cruz doesn't say much about their intuitive powers.

Money and fools are soon parted.

Beginning 2 1/2 years ago, the Dems and their media lapdogs began a running theme of ever-changing conspiracies, that posters on this very site were parroting and creating memes over. Just a few of those conspiracies included:

Shadow President Bannon
Breitbart conspiracy loons in control
Chaos in WH
Chaos in Cabinet
Russia collusion hoax
Russia has 'Kompromat'
"pee tapes"
Pooty's puppet meme
Trump a Russian asset
Trump's crime syndicate
First Lady a hooker
Dictator won't leave office
1936 Berlin

Show me the results from any of those claims, Twinpac.

The tool stuck in the mud is you.
