Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Rep. Matt Gaetz, who's facing a federal investigation into sex trafficking allegations, was recently denied a meeting with Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate as the ex-President and his allies continue to distance themselves from the Florida congressman.

Two people familiar with the matter said Gaetz tried to schedule a visit with Trump after it was first revealed that he was being investigated, but the request was rejected by aides close to the former President, who have urged Trump not to stick his neck out to defend Gaetz. Harlan Hill, a spokesman for Gaetz, said the congressman did not request a meeting with Trump this week.

With Trump, "loyalty" is a one-way trip into the swamp.

With this one action, former President Trump has done more to drain the swamp than he did in the previous 4+ years.

This'll make Gaetz sweat worse than anything.

Sociopaths sometimes use one another, but of course they never make friends. Trump will at last treat Gaetz as the garbage he is because Gaetz is a loser who can no loner do anything for Trump.

Trump will eventually get the same treatment from the sociopath club.

Of course Trump is.

When will the idiots learn that they'll only get their crumbs so long as they're useful?

Better question is how could somebody vote for a person so lacking in character they show zero loyalty to anybody but themselves? How can you think that type of personality in charge of our country is a good thing?

@#5 ... Better question is how could somebody vote for a person so lacking in character ...

I cut the citation of your comment off in mid-sentence, because I thought the second half was superfluous.

I had been aware of citizen Trump from his escapades in the New York City area.

Since the late 1980's, early 1990's or so, I had read and heard about him on local media. I knew of his abysmal lack of character even before he rode down the escalator.

I tried warning during the summer of the 2016 campaign.

Quite frankly, I was surprised his presidency wasn't worse than it was.

That it turned out as well as it did, can probably be credited to the aides around him who tried to keep him within the guard rails.

On your closing remarks, perhaps with the aides. But don't underestimate the role of the man's incuriosity, ignorance, laziness, and self-absorption. Not much room left for wonkishness.

I don't know how much worse, short of surrendering to Al Queda it could have been.

Massive deficits

Trading defense aid for dirt on Joe Biden

Constant public lying.

Giving Putin a public tongue bath in Helsinki.

Selling out the Kurds to Ergodan.

500,000 Americans dead.

Economy in shambles.

Hundreds of millions, if not billions, looted from the treasury.

Jackie Kennedy's rose garden replaced with a sidewalk.

Police officers killed by his mob.

And so on and so on....

When that fat loser dies I'm going to crack open that 25 yr old Macallan and then go piss on his grave.

#9 that reminds me of when Rush Limbaugh died:

Don't become in death what you hated in life!
For example, Rush Limbaugh hated unisex bathrooms.
