Drudge Report Gives Trump Headline He Most Feared, Deserved and Earned After Four Years: “You’re Fired!”


The Drudge Report has given Donald Trump the headline he most feared, deserved, and earned after four years:

“You’re fired!”

Drudge angered his far right followers after splitting with Trump more than a year ago. My guess is that Matt Drudge, who brought down Bill Clinton and maintained his conservative bent for the last 20 years, saw something in Trump that scared him: his basic cruelty and meanness.

And Drudge more than likely saw the stupidity. The Drudge Report is a political site, and Trump refused to be political or diplomatic. Instead of the Art of the Deal, Trump used a mallet to get what he wanted, which was almost always unpopular and against common sense. He was punitive. And now he’s gotten the ultimate punishment.
