The recent coverage has served as a red flag — or a flashing siren, if you will — to those who frequent the Drudge Report. Drudge hasn’t turned definitively against Trump yet, and he didn’t respond to a request for comment for this story, but according to two people close to him, he is certainly antsy with the rate of progress coming from the White House.
“He’s growing impatient,” one of the people close to Drudge told CNNMoney. “Drudge takes some credit, I think, for getting Trump elected into the White House and he expected him to follow through on the promises he campaigned on. Look, it’s not going well so far. Some of it is, but for the most part it’s trouble. Drudge can see that. He’s not blind to reality.”
The other person close to the reclusive publisher told CNNMoney that it “seems like Matt is starting to get a bit miffed.”
