    No question, he isn't always happy with some of the things the President does, especially concerning his original promises that haven't come to pass yet. To be honest, a lot of people feel like that and even post it here.

    I went to Breitbart's site and saw a number of articles that are critical of Trump - the difference is that Drudge just 'links' and often makes a more bombastic title. [And a little secret, he has workers that do most of that]
    Isn't Bannon running Breitbart now? He is still pro-Trump he just tries to keep President Trump on the right track. The swamp is sneak & can veer him off course if he is not watching. Also I think Bannon & President Trump still work together where Bannon can have a bit more.....flexibility to snooker the left with certain stories. Essentially baiting the left.

    Therein lies the issue. Drudge PICKS and CHOOSES what stories to post. It isn't some random, unbiased collection.

    When it comes to Trump, the articles he links are far from neutral, usually from anti-Trump organizations. You never see him link say a Gateway Pundit article, yet jumps right in with the usual CNN, Buzzfeed, etc links who are known Trump hating sites that have had many articles to be proven false.

    So Bannon through Breitbart is cockblocking Drudge to help President Trump.

    And Drudge takes the bait.

    With Drudge it is about the "headline" message...and then the clicky clickys follow from there to hundreds of other sites.

    The headlines are increasingly anti-Trump, and that smacks of an agenda by Matt.
    The Progressives have become full blown NAZIs, to thwart a Hitler that doesn't exist...since that is the only way they can express, and self justify, their fascism.

    Try looking at the left-hand column of sources toward the bottom of Drudge's main page. It's an alphabetical list, and you'll find Gateway Pundit along with ABC News, CNN, Hot Air and lots of others. I just moused-over the various articles. I did not see any from Gateway Pundit. I also did not see any from CNN. I saw one from Buzzfeed, but saw two or three from Breitbart.
