After a week of painting everyone who questions Donald Trump as the bad guys, the weekend rolled in with three truly negative Trump stories. He refused to release his taxes, later saying that he might release them after the audit (which he won’t). He refused to condemn Obama’s transgender bathroom decree, later saying that it should be an issue for states. Audio surfaced with Trump pretending to be someone else, which he denies now (though he acknowledged it when it happened).
Breitbart’s top headline is a puff peace on making America great again. Drudge is pushing an animated movie at the Cannes Film Festival. In fact, the only story Drudge posted so far this weekend that even mentions Trump is in reference to Senator Ben Sasse being reprimanded for being #NeverTrump.
These and other leading “conservative” publications cannot be trusted with reporting as it pertains to Trump. They’re in bed with him. They’re his personal PR firms that have exchanged conservatism for page views – and that’s the best case scenario for their duplicity. There’s not reason to believe that their coverage hasn’t been bought and paid for directly, but we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt based upon their past service to the country and conservatism.
As long as Drudge and Breitbart represent the media’s impression of conservatism, it can never succeed. They’ve latched onto a train that’s bound to crash. At the very least, it will take the Republican party down with it. At worst, it’s the country that will suffer at Trump’s hands. Drudge and Breitbart are willing accomplices.
