If you’ve already switched from Drudge to the Bongino Report, you may have missed this morning’s Drudge Report headline:  “EXCLUSIVE: BLOOMBERG CONSIDERS HILLARY RUNNING MATE.”

It’s unsubstantiated beyond Drudge claiming it, but the reactions to this bizarre announcement (by Drudge, not—yet?—by Bloomberg or his campaign) are hilarious.

Politico reports:

Matt Drudge, the famous news aggregator and internet provocateur, shattered the lull of an otherwise calm Saturday morning with a big-if-true bombshell: “EXCLUSIVE: BLOOMBERG CONSIDERS HILLARY RUNNING MATE.”

“Sources close to Bloomberg campaign tell DRUDGE REPORT that candidate is considering Hillary as running mate, after their polling found the Bloomberg-Clinton combination would be a formidable force…,” the tweet continued, pointing to Drudge’s eponymous website, where the scoop was played in underlined type above the scroll and a bright-red all-caps headline.

Here’s Drudge’s tweet (note, he usually deletes his tweets within hours, so the tweet is followed by the screengrab of it):


The jokes almost write themselves.
