Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 15, 2019

[E]ven if he pardons Manafort and Stone, and all his other loyalists, the plain fact will remain that his inner circle is marked by endemic criminality. In addition to his close adviser Stone, his campaign manager (Manafort), his deputy campaign manager (Gates), his lawyer (Michael Cohen), and his national security adviser (Michael Flynn) have all been convicted of felonies. Trump may have persuaded his hard-core base that all these convictions represent a fraudulent witch hunt. But outside the Trump cult, which is not by itself large enough to win the election, being surrounded by criminals is not an admired quality. Trump will probably not become as the first president to be impeached and removed from office, but he will go down in history as the most criminal president in American history.

More intriguing than the fact that he surrounds himself with criminals, is that everything he does internationally is something that helps putin.

Someday we'll learn why.

Editor got it wrong: "Criminals are surrounded by Trump."

Rorschach in Watchmen: "None of you seem to understand. I am not locked in here with you... You are locked in here with me!"

The guy who is an expert at finding the best people just hired some guys he calls Mr. Brown, Mr. White, Mr. Blonde, Mr. Blue, Mr. Orange and Mr. Pink. Their employment at the White House may not end well...

Absolutely. The Trump administration is comprised of the most but hurt millionaires and billionaires in America.

They already have all the money.

What they're seeking is to spread strife and misery.

It is like he thinks he's in a gangster movie but he insists on playing all the roles himself. The other day he had The Hair doing an imitation of Paulie the hitman guy on the Sopranos with outrageous side wings. Probably his hairstylist is the evil heavy thinker behind the whole damn persona. Certainly it's not his suits guy whose sideline is JC Penney. Nixon always looked very sharp but he had a valet who gave interviews. Trump's gangsters are secretive nobodies.

His campaign manager, campaign vice chairman, longtime political adviser, longtime personal lawyer, national security adviser, and foreign policy adviser were all just low-level coffee boys. He's never heard of any of them.
