Conservative Newspapers Go After Trump In Blistering Editorials

On Friday, two of Donald Trump’s favorite newspapers turned on the former president, publishing separate editorials calling him “unworthy to be this country’s chief executive again,” and condemning him as an “utter failure.”

After Thursday’s prime-time hearing, the Wall Street Journal’s editorial said Trump “failed” to do his duty as commander in chief.

The Journal called Trump “The President Who Stood Still on Jan. 6” and praised Vice President Mike Pence. “Character is revealed in a crisis, and Mr. Pence passed his Jan. 6 trial. Mr. Trump utterly failed his,” the Journal editorial stated.

Meanwhile, The New York Post’s editorial went further, suggesting that Trump should face criminal charges over his actions.

“It’s up to the Justice Department to decide if this is a crime,” the Post said. “But as a matter of principle, as a matter of character, Trump has proven himself unworthy to be this country’s chief executive again.”

Both newspapers, — controlled by his media ally Rupert Murdoch — have been noticeably more critical of Trump than Fox News Channel. But viewers have also picked up on some signs that the right-wing network may be souring on Trump too.

For example, Fox News does not show his rallies any longer. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was a featured guest on Fox while Trump held a rally on Friday night.
