As the Trump presidency continues to sink, even conservative outlets are starting to jump ship.
The Drudge Report is the latest conservative website to turn on President Donald Trump.
The news aggregation website posted a Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday which shows that only 39% of Americans approve of the president's performance.
And it hasn't gone unnoticed:
Matt Drudge, the founder of The Drudge Report, backed Trump during the campaign, but said he has grown impatient the more the president has failed to deliver on his promises.
Drudge has even gone so far as to throw shade at the president on Twitter, recently showcasing the front page of a Daily News article from 1990 with a headline that reads "Trump in a Slump."
Drudge accompanied the photo with the caption: "Life is a circle."
The about-face has left many Twitter users in a state of shock:
I don't think people realize what a big deal it is that Drudge is turning on Trump.— Joel Searby (@Joel_Searby) August 2, 2017
But there are plenty who are happy to relegate The Drudge Report to the "fake news" pile:
I don't take Ras or Drudge seriously. They step on and off the scale for marketing purposes. Ppl just gotta register to vote and vote.— Blank Slate (@blankslate2017) August 2, 2017
Not a big deal at all. When we turn on Drudge, THAT will be a big deal for HIM.— BarfNader™🇺🇸 (@BarfNader) August 2, 2017
Drudge - WAPO & NYT guess who's paying Drudge's bills. Nobody goes to the front page seller of their publications.— Alltogethernow!!! (@magatrump_10) August 2, 2017
Drudge turned on Trump right after the election. He hasn't been helpful - at all.— DeplorableCatArtist (@anitaDlivaditis) August 2, 2017
Still, it can't feel good for Trump to have one of his staunchest supporters turn on him:
