Posted on 11/10/2022 9:32:35 PM PST by SeekAndFind
Former President Donald Trump has been under attack since he began stumping for GOP candidates ahead of the midterms. Those incendiary remarks have gone into overdrive since Election Day on Wednesday, even from Republican supporters who spoke out against him after he referred to Florida governor Ron DeSantis as “Ron DeSanctimonious” during a final rally pre-midterm rally in Pennsylvania.
Throughout the election, Trump has been a top supporter of Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, which earned his criticism, most notably from one of his biggest media adversaries, Maggie Hagaman of the New York Times. After Oz’s stunning loss to John Fetterman, Hagaman had something to say which Trump didn’t take kindly to, which has since resulted in him publicly apologizing to former First Lady Melania Trump and his close media ally, Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
In a social media post on Thursday, Trump apologized on to Melania Trump and Sean Hannity for all the “fictional stories made up out of thin air, with no sources despite them claiming there are, being dumped on you by reporters” who should know better, Slay News reported.
“There is a Fake Story being promulgated by third-rate reporter Maggie Hagaman of the Failing New York Times, that I am blaming our great former First Lady, Melania, and Sean Hannity, that I was angry with their pushing me to Endorse Dr. Oz,” he added in the online rant.
Trump continued to call out the post-midterm allegations in addition to issuing an apology in his post thread on Truth Social:
“First of all Oz is a wonderful guy who really worked hard and was a very good candidate, but he WAS LONG IN THE RACE before I ever Endorsed him, they had NOTHING to do with it, he was not a ‘denier’ (his mistake!), & I was not at all ANGRY. Fake News!
“I’d like to apologize to Melania and Sean Hannity for all of the Fake News and fictional stories (made up out of thin air, with no sources despite them claiming there are!), being dumped on you by reporters and ‘News’ Organizations who know these stories are not true.
“The Fake News Media is ‘Crazed’ and totally out of control.
“I only wish the public could understand how really corrupt and crooked they are.
“They MAKE UP stories and then push them down your throats.
“Despite having picked so many winners, I have to put up with the Fake News.
His frustration didn’t end there, as he blasted reports that he was enraged over several of his handpicked Republican candidates losing their midterm election bids.
“For those many people that are being fed the fake narrative from the corrupt media that I am Angry about the Midterms, don’t believe it,” Trump said on Truth Social. “I am not at all angry, did a great job (I wasn’t the one running!), and am very busy looking into the future.”
“Remember, I am a ‘Stable Genius,’” he added.
According to the New York Post, “the 45th president was referencing reports that he was ‘furious’ Wednesday morning about Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz’s loss in the crucial Pennsylvania Senate race, and was blaming everyone in his circle — including wife Melania — for urging him to support the now-failed candidate.”
New York Times reporter and author Maggie Haberman tweeted the shocking claim, reporting that Trump described his wife’s backing of Oz as “not her best decision.”
The Post’s report added that “despite Trump apologizing to Hannity ‘for all of the Fake News and fictional stories,’ the former president raged against Fox News in a follow-up post, dubbing the channel ‘fake news’ for reporting on Trump-backed candidates who lost their elections.
“For me, Fox News was always gone, even in 2015-16 when I began my ‘journey,’ but now they’re really gone,” Trump said. “Such an opportunity for another media outlet to make an absolute fortune, and do good for America. Let’s see what happens?”
Trump also commented on two undecided key races: Arizona’s gubernatorial race, and the U.S. Senate race in Nevada. He warned of potential election fraud affecting the outcome for Kari Lake, Arizona’s GOP gubernatorial nominee, and Adam Laxalt, Nevada’s Republican Senate hopeful.
“Clark County, Nevada, has a corrupt voting system (be careful Adam!), as do many places in our soon to be Third World Country. Arizona even said ‘by the end of the week!” – They want more time to cheat! Kari Lake MUST win!” he noted.
Trump’s rant spurred on more attacks over the issue from his media adversaries, such as Salon, who claimed “Trump was beside himself because Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis – his most likely competitor for the 2024 presidential nomination – easily won a second term.”
He is becoming a tard.
What about to Ron?
Apologize, then stop any public statements for a day or two.
Take a moment for some reflection.
That was 14 hours ago. After that specific post, he’s been on a roll on TS.
He’s creating quite a bit of unnecessary drama smack in the middle of midterms. Not sure what’s going on with him. But, it is not ‘flattering’ whatsoever.
Underwear too tight? Try the new Pocket Pack from Macy’s!
Why is he issuing a policy for something that’s totally made up? Did he spread the rumor? Why would he apologize?
I’m going commando.
He’s getting up there in age and some of it should be expected. I also suspect he my be on subscription meds which cause side effects.
He didn’t apologize. He explained. Here’s the post
Stop being disrespectful to Trump. You are not even up to his shoe souls in what he's done for this country.
Whatever, I don’t even know why he would mention it. People know he got Dr Oz to run because he loves oprah. But it’s interesting that he’s so deferential to Dr Oz even approving of him being a denier, but he will rip Rick DeSantis apart.
Actually it’s interesting he uses the term denier at all. So he uses the left-wing term and buys into their logic. Bizarre.
Had he kept his big mouth shut, he could have done more. So much more. But pride goes before a fall. Most of the country is not Manhattan, barking for a cab.
“Only Trump can end Trump.” Rush Limbaugh.
Politics is becoming celebrities feuding.
It is Very strange. Scroll up to the dozen or so posts he wrote after the one I sent you. I’m not understanding why he’s so hell bent right now. It’s very unbecoming.
Did you watch Candice Owen’s video on YT yesterday. He’s angry with her too. She gives her theory for his behavior.
He needs to have a talk with Ron Desantis and end this once and for all. Quite frankly it would be wise for him to go dark for a couple weeks and just go play some golf. He isn’t to blame for the gop underperforming that was abortion and them not having an answer for it when it is so easy to defend a pro life position.
