Perfect timing with Trump declaring war on the Freedom Caucus today.


Intriguing lunch in hill office of America's best senator, Rand Paul. He's bold, brave and has somehow kept his heart in such a corrupt city

I used to always go to the Drudge report, but I've stopped since it was a constant Trump pump. Is that starting to change now?

Drudge has always been anti-globalist, pro-American renewal. If Trump can't deliver, Drudge is going to move on.

To be fair, "best senator" is very faint praise.

Too little, too late. IMO.

At this point, I'll take what I can get. Having arguably the most influential man in right wing media backing Rand and the Freedom Caucus right when Trump is going after them is huge news. But yeah, I don't consider myself a Drudge fan.

Pretty sure Drudge went pro-Trump when Rand was still in the race. But, if he's got buyers remorse then good. I don't think he really gives a shit. $$$$$

The other day he tweeted "The swamp drains you" buyers remorse is a good bet.

Same sentiment.

I went to Drudge's twitter but can only find this tweet about Rand and nothing else. Does he only make tweets one at a time? or?

Yeah, he's weird. Tweets once. Deletes it. Leaves account empty. Tweets again next week or something. People notice his tweets more that way.

'We share a strong mutual admiration': Rand Paul praises Matt Drudge after meeting in Washington

The conservative internet-news mogul Matt Drudge met with Republican Sen. Rand Paul in Washington, DC, earlier this week and praised him as "bold" and "brave."

"Intriguing lunch in hill office of America's best senator, Rand Paul," Drudge tweeted on Thursday. "He's bold, brave and has somehow kept his heart in such a corrupt city."

Paul's spokesman returned the compliment.

"Matt Drudge has a phenomenal take on the news and is a leader who others in the business can only hope to emulate," Sergio Gor told Business Insider in a statement. "We enjoyed visiting with him, and we share a strong mutual admiration!"

Drudge has been taking what some have interpreted as subtle shots at President Donald Trump's administration recently through his website and Twitter account.

Drudge is the founder and editor of the Drudge Report, a popular and influential conservative news-aggregation website visited by millions of readers each month.

He has also ripped the Republican establishment as of late, true to what was his form during the presidential election.

In a recent tweet, Drudge contended the GOP "lied about wanting tax cuts."

"Can we get our votes back?" he asked.

Forget subtle shots, if Drudge has a problem with Trump, say it, Drudge isn't a politician.

Hard to blame him when even Ron Paul supporters went hardcore on the Trump train.

Yup, but that works just as well.

We'll never actually convert everybody whose support we need.

This, i.e. people driven by self-interest jumping on the bandwagon, is what victory will look like.
