Rupert Murdoch drops Trump and kicks him on the curb
In a stinging editorial in the New York newspaper that has long supported him, Rupert Murdoch made it clear that he was deviating from Trump.
Axios reported: “Murdoch was upset with Trump before the election and now it’s divorce.”
The Post’s editorial said in part, “You had every right to investigate the election. But let’s be clear: these efforts have found nothing. To take just two examples, your campaign paid $ 3 million for a recount in two Wisconsin counties, and you lost 87 more votes. Georgia made two recounts of the state, each time confirming Biden’s victory. These ballots were counted by hand, which alone invalidates claims of a Venezuelan octopus conspiracy. Sidney Powell is a crazy person. Michael Flynn, who proposes martial law, is synonymous with treason. It’s embarrassing. “
Trump and Murdoch have been fighting since Trump called Murdoch to get him to reverse his call from Arizona for Joe Biden, and Murdoch declined.
Murdoch’s dumping of Trump is a ominous omen of the former president’s imminent hopes of reviving his political career in 2024.
What was really about Trump’s outbreak and refusal to sign pandemic relief law was the president being pushed off the beaten track and desperate to be the center of attention.
Right-wing media was Trump’s secret to success, and if Rupert Murdoch moves away from him, it will only keep him from becoming irrelevant.
