Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, November 11, 2019

Donald Trump Jr hoped to prove what he had just argued in his book -- that a hate-filled American left was hell-bent on silencing him and anyone else who supported the Trump presidency. But the appearance backfired when his own supporters, diehard Make America Great Again conservatives, raised their voices most loudly in protest and ended up drowning him out barely 20 minutes into an event scheduled to last two hours.

From the cited article:

...At first, Trump and Guilfoyle tried to ignore the discontent, which originated with a fringe group of America Firsters who believe the Trump administration has been taken captive by a cabal of internationalists, free-traders, and apologists for mass immigration....

I had to read that sentence twice to make sure I was reading it correctly.

After I had read the rest of the article describing the groups in attendance, my reading of that sentence then seemed to be correct.

When the shouting would not subside, Trump Jr tried " and failed " to argue that taking questions from the floor risked creating soundbites that leftwing social media posters would abuse and distort.

Trump made a lot of promises to extremists. This is what happens when they don't get what they were promised. Jr. better re-evaluate his security.

The video.

This is what they're turning America into.

Guilfoyle looks like a gargoyle.

I used to think the Trumps would end this thing by retiring to Con land, to associate forever with the lunatic fringe. Now I am seeing they are hated everywhere.

America has turned into a Petri dish for far-right extremism. Trump saw it as cover for his corruption, but it appears his irresponsible drum-beating on paranoid conspiracies has unleashed the fury of those who think even he isn't extreme enough. American democratic ideals are increasingly imperiled by this lunatic fringe.

That was a fun read. Thanks!

Guilfoyle, forced to shout to make herself heard, told students in the crowd: "You're not making your parents proud by being rude and disruptive."

Aw.

Poor Traitor Tott, hated by the left and the right, thinking he and his family have sacrificed on par with the fallen soldiers at Arlington. This greasy, loathsome, failure of Drumpf to pull out thinks he's got a chance to be Governor of NY? More likely he has a chance to go to prison. We can only hope!

These people who are stirring discontent and rage for political game are playing with a fire they only think they can control.

"These people who are stirring discontent and rage for political game are playing with a fire they only think they can control."

I think that was originally John Boehner's disastrous plan.
