Drudge: Cameo By ‘Greasy Obama’ During Grammys Was ‘Very Unsettling’

Conservative news blogger Matt Drudge was on brand Sunday night during the Grammy Awards, ominously tweeting out a still frame from President Obama’s videotaped address to the audience.

“Hoarse, watery eyes. Like he knows something terrible coming. Very unsettling…” Drudge wrote of the image of the still of what he described as “Greasy Obama.”

Drudge routinely wipes his Twitter account clean, so here is the tweet, in the event of deletion:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
