As he assessed the young but embattled presidency of President Donald Trump, Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report made it clear Friday he does not believe the administration’s struggles are all of its own making.
During an interview on Michael Savage’s radio show, Drudge pointed the finger at Congress for trying to sidetrack the “Trump Express” by intentionally putting obstructions in Trump’s way.
“I suspect there’s a sabotage,” Drudge said.
He compared how Congress fawned over former President Barack Obama with how this Congress treats Trump.
“Do you know Obama had the stimulus package on his desk before Inauguration Day? What did this Congress give this great man. Nothing,” he said.
As a result, “I do think there is a crisis, on many fronts,” Drudge said.
His remedy? Let Trump be Trump.
“His personality is not being totally used here. The charm, the guy who ran the hotel, the guy who had the No. 1 TV show with The Apprentice,” said Drudge.
“Charisma is needed in this job. This isn’t just getting a bill through Congress. This is also charisma. So I wish they would let him return to Donald Trump, the full Donald Trump.”
Drudge also suggested that Trump take the offensive.
“I would sit down and give an interview with Oprah,” Drudge said. “Do you know in the ’80s he did and she melted in his presence? The audience of women melted in his presence.”
“Now, that doesn’t mean he changes his policies … but why not do a little bit more to reach out to the other half?” he added.
During the show, Drudge also said Trump “has saved the media.”
“I’m getting a little bit nervous about the media situation. Do you know, the media was near death? The New York Times was hanging on the short hairs. Do you know Vanity Fair was going under? CNN barely had a fraction,” Drudge said to Savage.
“Trump has saved the media. Record, record ratings now because the opposition is consolidating. They’re following every bouncing ball. People actually believe that Trump is a Russian agent, this is the drugged ones.”
Drudge said the nation is at a dangerous crossroads.
“You know what’s happening here? People are nervous,” Drudge said. “It could go back to Hillary. She looks like she’s running again. Third time is the charm … All she needs is a million more. Have there been a million more illegals that have come in and will sneak the vote since the election? I don’t know.”
