Drudge Runs Fake Headline About ‘Flat Black Friday’ Meanwhile 2019 Early Sales Topped Record-Breaking $5.4 BILLION

I still see a lot of people wondering what happened to the Drudge Report.

Yes, they’ve gone to the dark side and are no longer a “friend” of President Trump or the America First Movement.

Here’s what happened in a quick nutshell:

The reason Drudge no longer feels like “Drudge” is because it’s really not the same site we’ve come to know and love.

Matt Drudge recently signed on with a Google affiliated company, which purchased Matt Drudge’s father’s website, RefDesk, as part of the deal.

This is the reason Drudge went “mainstream” and is now leaning to the left: to satisfy his new advertising agency.”

So, if you go on Drudge now you’ll see a lot of negative Trump news and anything that can be spun to look bad for President Trump.

For example, yesterday was #BlackFriday and it ended up being a BLOW OUT record day, but not according to Drudge, who painted the historically amazing day like a total flop with his fake news headline which read: “Black Friday Flat? Macy’s Ghost Town. Crowds Thin Out”

 

“Black Friday spending was up 22% to a record high of $5.4 billion.

Yet – sellout, phony Matt Drudge ran huge headlines all day pretending it was horrible.

How any Conservative can click on the liberal Drudge Report is beyond me.”

The pre-sales were at $5.4 billion – before the pumpkin pie was even served!

Americans with a hearty appetite for online deals pulled out their smartphones and, for the first time, shelled out more than $4 billion on Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday shopping season.
Thanksgiving Day’s record online sales of $4.2 billion — about half of which occurred before the pumpkin pies even hit the table — set the stage for a busy Black Friday and potentially another blockbuster holiday season for retailers, according to Adobe Analytics data.
“We’ve got a shorter holiday selling season,” Jason Woosley, Adobe’s vice president of commerce product and platform, said in an interview with CNN Business. “That’s creating a compression effect.” [CNN Business]

One Twitter user said the story was about the U.K. not the U.S. Perhaps Drudge trying to be extra sneaky and freak out Americans?

@DRUDGE your top headline about low Black Friday sales is about the U.K. not the US. Resorting to clickbait is not a good look, but I guess that’s your thing now.”

This is Black Friday will likely be the best on records. Online Black Friday shopping topped over $7 BILLION dollars.

The $7.4 billion marked the biggest sales day ever for Black Friday and trailed only last year’s Cyber Monday’s $7.9 billion for the number 1 spot of all-time in online revenue, according to Adobe’s data. The average order value per consumer, at $168, was up nearly 6% year-over-year and also set a new Black Friday record. Adobe Analytics measures transactions from 80 of the top 100 U.S. online retailers.

“Small Business Saturday” has already seen $470 million in online spend, up 18% over last year, as of 9 a.m. ET. Sales are on pace to surpass $3 billion for the day, said Adobe.

“With Christmas now rapidly approaching, consumers increasingly jumped on their phones rather than standing in line,” said Taylor Schreiner, principal analyst and head of Adobe Digital Insights, in a statement. “Small Business Saturday will accelerate sales for those retailers who can offer unique products or services that the retail giants can’t provide.” [CBNBC]

The Christmas Holiday Season will tell us a lot about how strong the Trump economy is, which is why Drudge and other liberals are trying to spread fake news about Black Friday being “flat.”

Just remember, the left would rather see America destroyed and Americans suffering than succeed under President Trump. That’s how evil and sick these people are.
