President Donald Trump called conservative media personality Matt Drudge "a great gentleman" and his website Drudge Report as "great" in an interview with Fox News on Friday morning.
"Drudge is great by the way," Trump said to "Fox and Friends" host Steve Doocy. "Matt Drudge is a great gentleman, he really has ability to capture stories that people want to see."

Interesting...perhaps trying to get some gays to support PDJT?
Bit by bit he lassoes limelighters who affect segments of the population...like Kim Kardashian...good strategy...stroking egos works.
Trump is feeding Drudge’s ego here...praising The DD for proclaiming the president’s economic success yesterday. Trump is telling Matt: MORE like THAT, please, and I’ll sing your praises again.
Why Trump has anything good to say about Drudge is beyond me. All Trump had to do was look at how Drudge treated the IG report statement no political bias versus to the stop Trump text messages to know Drudge is Trump hater.
President Trump also praised Justin Trudeau last year when he visited the White House. Things can change of course as we have found out.
Business Insider is a far left website.
couldn't have said it better myself
All Drudge does anymore is link NYT or WaPo’s latest hysterical fake news piece.
Drudge and FR happen to be my first news sources. I am grown up enough to know that links to liberal stories and columns does not constitute endorsement. FR seems to be overrun with children of late.
All he has ever really done is link from day one.
I'm addicted to this site for just that reason.
“Why Trump has anything good to say about Drudge is beyond me. “
It is the same reason Trump says good things about Kim Jong Un and all sorts of critters out there. Trump is savvy and says things to flatter people to hopefully get what he wants.
Yes, but it used to be the stuff that the MSM wouldn’t publish or wanted to bury.
Now, he tweets their headlines. He’s been on autopilot for years.

That’s correct. The liberals can’t figure out that’s what he’s doing in the far East. Bad cop - then good cop.
It doesn’t have to constitute endorsement. If the content provided to readers is overwhelmingly left wing, the flavor of the enterprise is overwhelmingly left wing.
Do you remember when Drudge used to provide original content on occasion, or even - GASP - break open a big news story?
That’s what made him relevant. That he no longer does those things makes him no longer relevant, except from a driving web traffic point of view.
You and Robert Mueller at least have this in common: Distrust in the American citizen’s ability to think independently.
If only you could see how exaggeratedly I rolled my eyes at your comment.
Really? Is that your tactic?
I guess if that’s fair, then I can only note that you and Mueller have MUCH MORE in common, as you seem to enjoy reading the same news sources.
