Skip to comments.Matt Drudge is firing warning shots at Trump, and that should worry the president

Matt Drudge has been in the White House an awful lot these days -- "all the time," as one senior administration official puts it. He's met with President Donald Trump, spent time with Ivanka Trump, and doled out advice to Jared Kushner.
That he'd have influence in the Trump White House should not be all that surprising. The internet news tycoon, who founded and edits the Drudge Report, the narrative-setting conservative news website, has been one of Trump's most ardent supporters since Trump announced his candidacy. He boosted him through the contentious Republican primaries, helped him defeat Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton by galvanizing the GOP base, and, for the better half of his young presidency, has stayed in sync with the White House's talking points.
But Drudge is blindly loyal to no one -- which could, ultimately, make him as dangerous to this White House as he has been helpful to it.

Meanwhile we have this CNN "media analysis" piece from several days ago, and from the Very Fake News Network.
Article says he's been to the White House a number of time to advise, and that he may be growing impatient for some or various reasons.
Drudge is extremely elusive, so how could anyone tell one way or the other?
I always enjoyed Drudge’s radio program on Sunday nights. He handed his show off to Billy Cunningham, another pro-Trump voice in the media. It starts at 10:00pm.
This article is about 2 weeks old and was posted numerous times.
Got anything a little more current?
Drudge needs to get his act in gear or become a historical note
He is rumored to be gay and probably having a hissy fit about the tranny ban.
I’m sure Matt is angry about the ban on transsexuals in the military.
Tweek vs Craig.
Drudge is a huge success because of posting interesting curent events. Why would he kiss anyones behind? Trump owes Drudge, not the other way around.
Drudge souring on Trump appears to be a growing concern among some people.Fake news without a source or a link.
Pretty much covers it. Most other news too.
The article was originally posted by CNN in July, yet you neglected to put the correct date in your post. Shame, shame, shame.
Drudge should go to hell.
The media is resorting to divide and conquer. Not going to work.
“Drudge needs to get his act in gear or become a historical note”
I gave up on him during the election. I hardly ever visit his website.
Drudge is a news site...he just picks a few articles..if the msn is 80% negative..Drudge will be negative..
They ban sites here..so maybe we think the coverage is more positive
Anyone po’d about the tranny ban needs to be forgotten along with obamas legacy...
Ok but it’s obvious he isn’t covering Dem scandals and be is bannering the idea of Pence replacing Trump. I think something is up with him.
