It was cool when Obama was getting the obstruction treatment from Congress, but guess what? Trump is having the same problems, according to Matt Drudge.


Matt Drudge said he thinks the Trump administration is in a crisis "on many fronts" in its early days, partly due to deliberate obstruction from the Republican-controlled Congress.
"I suspect there is a sabotage," he said on conservative commentator Michael Savage's radio show on Friday. “Do you know Obama had the stimulus package on his desk before Inauguration Day? What did this Congress give this great man? Nothing.”


Drudge feels that the health care re-reform failed because of congress. So now how fun is the grab assery in our legislative branch of govt when it is "our guy" getting the treatment?


But on the radio show, Drudge appeared to pin most of the blame for the failure of the American Health Care Act on Congress, noting that even if the bill had passed through the House, it would likely have been obstructed in the Senate.

"Donald Trump has been dealt a very bad hand here. Does the audience understand that? He has a bad hand and that’s just the way it is," he said.

Do an interview with Oprah? Drudge thinks it would be a good idea to offer an "olive branch" to her liberal viewers. He could be right.


He also suggested Trump do an interview with Oprah Winfrey, extending an olive branch to her liberal viewers without changing his politics.

"Why not do a little bit more to reach out to the other half?" he said

Trump and the Oprah...
There is not a forum large enough to hold those egos.

Very true, can you imagine a slight disagreement and the interview would go bad. It would be good TV.

If the Trump/Oprah thing became a possibility, i could honestly see Oprah backing out in the name of supporting a liberal ideal. Something along the lines of "he's not my president!".

If it did happen though, I could see Trump nailing it. He'd show a much more likeable side and viewers might pay attention to what he actually says rather than some obnoxious sound bites.

I suspect there are members in the house and Senate that are covertly conspiring against the Trump administration, but the sabotage efforts run much "deeper" than the elected government...

Good point, Oprah would be a fool to agree to this. HRC tried her luck and it turned out Trump was no push over in debating.

He would change a lot of liberals minds in a short interview.

I kind of liked Trump for a number of reasons. One is that unlike the ideologues on both sides Trump could pivot to get the job done. I didn't like the Republican health care plan and I'm happy it didn't get through the House. I wish that Trump would get the moderates on both sides together and find a decent health care plan without egos or idealism getting in the way. Of course that will never happen. Too many on both sides making money, making news and not enough reason. This fractured heathcare and our political system will continue its death spiral into the dirt.

It would be better than good.
Trump might go all Joe Namath on her Suzy Kolber.

There is a rant I could do but will leave in my belly.

Paul Ryan pulled the same thing the dems did...pass the HC bill and we will explain it after. Well, Freedom group is on to that and want time to understand before it is put up for vote. Good for some sane people.

Repubs did the same thing to Obama but Obama wasn't set up prior to taking office and what is going on now is a witch hunt...find something anything.

And most of congress are acting like petulant children

I think the current Republican strategy on the Affordable Care Act is to let it crash and burn on its own and then they will instigate a new, less expensive health care plan. That way they won't be blamed for replacing the ACA with something worse.

If the Repubs plan is less expensive, why would they be blamed for replacement with something worse?

Why wait if they have a super duper idea?

I don't think they have a plan, and they are paid off just like the Dems and don't give a rats ass if you can afford medical care or not.

Could be wrong, but didn't they have years and years to get a plan together?

congress has too much power and presidents are too limited to make any great long lasting changes to the system, this constant change of leadership is making our country unstable and preventing progress, because of this instability congress has become stagnant and filled with conflict, corruption has infected the system and we have no stable strong leader who can ever stand up to it.

congress will be known as the reason our country collapsed if we don't change things and add limits to it, this political game playing between parties is eroding our country by promoting corruption and one-upmanship.

remove presidential term limits
ban lobbying
implement congressional term limits
ban campaign donations
ban private sponsored political advertising campaigns
ban political parties
ban people with significant corporate connections from participation in politics
purge of corrupt politicians
implement permanent exile from politics for participation in acts of corruption and criminal behavior.

corporations are the real enemy of america and congress is colluding with them to bypass the will of the people, they together are stagnating america and preventing change for the betterment of the people.

It is less expensive for the taxpayers vs less expensive for the non-tax payers. I don't know if you can have both.

You obviously don't know what you're talking about. In unstable countries they have the same leaders for decades, or regimes change every few months. Our country is more stable than most, but yes our government sucks.

F Drudge. Great man my ass, if he thinks Trump is a great man he's just as stupid as everyone on the left thinks he is.

Did he give a damn when Republicans waged outright warfare against Obama for 8 years, culminating in unbelievable dereliction of duty and rejecting the constitution when they refused to give his lawful supreme court pick a hearing??

I don't know about F'ing Drudge. But it was all fun and games when Barack (cant say his middle name) Obama was being screwed in Congress for years.

Shoe meet other foot.

This attitude is one reason for the accelerating downward spiral of the effectiveness of our political system over the last 15-20 years. D's get the R's and the R's payback the D's. Then repeat cycle. Nothing good comes of it and we continue the downward spiral.

I disagree with Drudge ... the problem is there is huge money backing the Freedom Caucus ...
Trump will find a way to get everyone together to satisfy the FC backers.
