Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, April 28, 2020

This "let Trump be Trump" strategy -- the administration's go-to, considering Trump has fired anyone who might preempt it -- was applied to the pandemic just as one of the president's most trusted aides officially returned to the fold. While Hope Hicks now holds a nebulous White House title, the communications strategy she has crafted for Trump's emergency messaging is perfectly clear: let him address the nation in his own words while taking the briefing room's centerstage on a near daily basis.

"let Trump be Trump" strategy"

I'll admit my bad, but the Sorkin reference caught my eye.

I tend to agree. Let trump be Trumpy.

Give him enough rope a dope to hang himself with.

The more he continues to embarrass and humiliate his party the better.

Except when Humpy lies Americans die.

November is right around the corner. Hopefully not too many will have to die for Humpy first before we can undo this foreign forced error.

Excellent point. Hair Furor's approval ratings went up during the impeachment not because people thought he was innocent, because polling showed that the most Americans thought he was corrupt, could not be trusted, and should be removed from office. His polls went up because he stopped being in our faces everyday. At the time things looked pretty good in the country, we weren't in any hot wars, the economy was clicking along, unemployment was down, most of us weren't focused on COVID45 yet and the things that people find most objectionable about Diaper Donnie, that he is an embarrassing dotard who says and tweets terrible, racist, idiotic things were not on daily display. As soon as the impeachment ended and he started tweeting and seeking the cameras again, his approval went right back to his normal -10 to -15. In times of national distress the nation tends to rally around the President. President Lysol-the-time saw a bump in his polling as we became familiar with COVID45 to the point that the averages showed he was about even, but then his many and ongoing failures to act became the news, and his daily insanity on display campaign briefings only exacerbated the problem so now he's back well underwater and sinking fast.

Well we know one of Hope's jobs in her last stint in the WH was to steam his pants WHILE HE WAS WEARING THEM! I think it was Maggie Haberman who said that Drumpf looked at Hope like he would his own daughter. Knowing the way he looks at, speeks about and touches Kremlin Barbie, that can only mean that Drumpf wants to sleep with Hope. I bet that after sex he even compares her to Ivanka, the way he did Karen McDougall and several of his sexual assault victims.

I just couldn't get the embouchure right the first time around.

NAW, I think he looks at Hope and reminisces longingly for the days when he wasn't impotent.

She's like the calendar girl on his locker room wall.

She's unqualified. In other words, perfect for the Trump White House.
