Even Drudge can’t tell Trumpists the truth

Apparently, Trump supporters are mad at Matt Drudge because even he can’t spin the First Felon in a positive light.

Donald Trump fans have been fuming for weeks at conservative mega-aggregator Matt Drudge, alleging that his Drudge Report has backed Democrats’ impeachment push and ignored GOP arguments in favor of the president. And now, as a measure of their dissatisfaction, would-be internet media moguls are looking to make it big by creating Drudge Report clones and, potentially, stealing his visitors.

But conservative anger at Drudge has ramped up alongside impeachment proceedings into Trump, threatening his exalted status in the right-wing media ecosystem. Jim Hoft, the founder of the Gateway Pundit blog, has repeatedly urged Drudge to “come home.” Pro-Trump cartoonist Ben Garrison urged his fans to abandon the site, adding a cartoon of a meter with Drudge’s face swinging left.

Clearly, Trumpists aren’t ready yet to face the dismal reality that they’ve been snookered by a con man.
