Drudge…Drudge!…Is Pissed At Trump?

Okay, someone grab the trans-dimensional hotline, phone up Lucifer, and find out if hell’s frozen over. None other than the Drudge Report …the Drudge Report!…is criticizing Trump for the way he behaved in Helsinki with Putin. Writing in Newsweek, Paul Lablanc says that, The Drudge Report, a conservative news aggregation outlet, did not shy away from criticizing President Donald Trump Monday after he openly declined to side with the consensus of U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia interfered in the 2016 election.” The Report to say that Putin “dominated” in Finland, and, by implication, hinted that he’d also dominated Trump.

This is a reasonably serious development. The Drudge Report, the work of would-be Neo-Walter Winchell Matt Drudge, was one of the earliest and fiercest supporters of the new Right in its attempt to claim Congress and the White House. For it, and Drudge himself, to express outrage about Trump’s obvious deference to Putin in Finland is amazing.

And it could be a sign of things to come. Maybe, just maybe, even the Right itself is growing aware of just how awful a threat 45 really is to America.
