Drudge Report: Merry Christmas Mr. Mueller!

Homocon Matt Drudge, the longtime darling of right, seems to be enjoying today’s news for some reason, having posted exclamatory links to well-known fake news outlets like CNN, NBC, ABC, and the Daily Beast.

Notably missing (so far) from Drudge’s coverage of the still unfolding scandal are any links to Breitbart, Gateway Pundit, Sputnik News, or RT – all of which he typically leans on heavily during breaking news.

Interesting.

    The stock market has next to nothing to do with anything – especially on the short term. Long term trends can hit your savings depending on your diversification but you’re not 100% in stocks if you’re most people anyway.

      Dow is off only about 80 points (0.33%) right now. It’s the Spanish, French and German markets that seem to have gone down, for some other reason.

      Cheer up, though, the Russian market seems to be up.

    Remember when Donald J Trump warned us that if we voted for Hillary, we’d have a president under Federal investigation… Do ya think when the snow clears from Mr. Trump’s snowflake globe, he’ll see that the little guy behind bars is really him?

    • nocadrummer

      I voted for Hillary .
      Trump is still under investigation.
      And the GOP has YET to find anything on her, despite all their investigations.

    • I guess even a broken (analog) clock is right twice a day. I did vote for Hillary, and the President is under a Federal investigation. Go figure….

      • Nowhereman

        I chuckle, but that is one of my pet peeves, too. When digital clocks break, they are never right. But it’s an old saying, like “In for a penny, in for a pound.”

    • Nowhereman

      He also warned us that if we voted for Hillary, we’d be in another war. I voted for Hillary and now Trump is trying to get a hot war going in Korea.

  • Judas Peckerwood

    I hope he’s not under the impression that we want him on our side.

  • Treant

    I’m sure he’s short selling his stocks right now.

    And he really doesn’t seem to like Dumpy for some reason. Maybe DJT just isn’t subtle enough for Drudge and he prefers somebody who will destroy America more slowly and unobviously over many years…

    • MT YVR

      Huh. So I’m NOT the only one thinking that.

      • Treant

        Nope. Just find somebody else who always looks at the most evil possible interpretation when dealing with a clearly evil person. πŸ™‚

        • MT YVR

          Oh, that’s not the process for me. I work in IT. We plan for worst case scenarios. I’ve been doing for twenty years.

          I look at shit like this and INSTANTLY I think : humans are fuckers. Someone will be trying to make porn out of this, a religion, money and one will be trying to predict some sort of quantum physics level crap with it.

          I don’t BELIEVE people are asshats… I’ve got proof. It’s more a “so, what did the lil shits do today?” lol

          • Treant

            That does explain it. As a some-time programmer and more-often data extractor, 90% of my thought processes are, “And how will a stupid or malicious human fuck up the entry on this field or data set?”

          • MT YVR

            Bingo! (to the Windows startup chime)

          • Treant

            And the humans are dumber and more malicious than you could possibly believe.

            I had a user complain that the program crashed if he entered “1e99” in the field.

            I had actually never thought of exponential entry on that particular field; it just never crossed my mind, but ended with me writing a min/max check into my standard object check. Which is more complicated than it sounds, given the ranges of the variables and many languages’ dislike of explicit casting.

            Hon. We’ve got our organization’s studies all in Oracle, we have most moved into Apex thank the gods as we WERE in Forms. But that as a starting point. We have a department splitting off to form a new organization who ACTUALLY just did the whole “oh, just give us the study databases” as if we could put this shit on a usb key and they could just plug that shit in anywhere.

            Knowing you program… I share this with the full knowledge of the inevitable “But… no… that… but… but that’s NOT… none of it works that… oh my GOD”.

            I feel ya. In other words.

            I once saw a bit of the show at a friend’s house, and found it annoying, because they all talk at the same time and keep cutting their own sentences off.

        • Max_1

          The woman who’s worried about this becoming an even more polarised Nation said spitefully that this a good moment for Liberals and Democrats… Keeping that divide alive Meghan.

          • Oh, Parker

            I’m sick of this subterranean false equivalency shit they keep trying to interject every time they find their party has done something blatantly wrong. Trump made it clear he was unfit for office during the entirety of his campaign and should have never been elected for a whole host of reasons. It’s a little precious and convenient that they seem suddenly concerned for the country’s best interests now.

          • Nowhereman

            I know what you mean. The minute he rode down the escalator and started trashing Mexicans should have been the end of it. But this is what that 30% of willfully ignorant deplorables wants–total chaos. The republican party as a whole is complicit in putting a totally unqualified jackass in the Oval Office, and why? So that they can get tax cuts for their filthy rich donors and shit on all the rest of us. The Deplorables are down with it because they want to stick it to people of color, women, LGBT people, and of course the working poor.

      • Nowhereman

    • Treant

      You mean nothingness and the complete dissolution of everything that ever comprised the essential Donald J. Trump?

      Well, for him that’s a terrible thing; he’s unimportant to the Universe and just stops. I’ve always found it rather a comfort.

      “From too much love of living,
      From hope and fear set free,
      We thank with brief thanksgiving
      Whatever gods may be
      That no life lives for ever;
      That dead men rise up never;
      That even the weariest river
      Winds somewhere safe to sea.”

  • Treant
