Those who live in the New York City area know that the Daily News is the Liberal paper and that Post is the Conservative paper. The New York Post is owned by Rupert Murdoch, who also owns the Fox News network. Over the last couple of decades, the Post has given Trump plenty of good press.
But Murdoch and Trump got into a feud over the call of the 2020 election call in Arizona. And Fox seems to be pulling away from the former President. And this weekend, the NY Post editorial board opined that Trump shouldn’t run again.
The panel began, “As his followers stormed the Capitol, calling on his vice president to be hanged, President Donald Trump sat in his private dining room, watching TV, doing nothing. For three hours, seven minutes.”
The piece continues, “Trump only wanted one thing during that infamous afternoon: to pressure Vice President Mike Pence to decertify the election of Joe Biden. He thought the violence of his loyal followers would make Pence crack, or delay the vote altogether.”
The board closes, “It’s up to the Justice Department to decide if this is a crime. But as a matter of principle, as a matter of character, Trump has proven himself unworthy to be this country’s chief executive again.”
