WSJ , New York Post Trash ‘Toxic Loser’ Trump In Brutal Editorials



Donald Trump loser

Conservative publications The Wall Street Journal and The New York Post tore into Donald Trump on Thursday, referring to the former president as “toxic Trump” and “the biggest loser” over the GOP’s underwhelming performance in Tuesday’s midterms.

The newspapers, owned by Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch, blamed Trump for a series of defeats suffered by candidates he endorsed.

In its editorial, The Wall Street Journal slammed Trump’s role in the midterms, calling him the “biggest loser.”

“Trump Is the Republican Party’s Biggest Loser,” the headline read. “He has now flopped in 2018, 2020, 2021 and 2022.”

“Trumpy Republican candidates failed at the ballot box in states that were clearly winnable. This can’t be what Mr. Trump was envisioning ahead of his ‘very big announcement’ next week,” the editorial board wrote. “Since his unlikely victory in 2016 against the widely disliked Hillary Clinton, Mr. Trump has a perfect record of electoral defeat. The GOP was pounded in the 2018 midterms owing to his low approval rating. Mr. Trump himself lost in 2020. He then sabotaged Georgia’s 2021 runoffs by blaming party leaders for not somehow overturning his defeat.”

Meanwhile, The New York Post printed a cover with an egg-shaped Trump on a brick wall with the headline, “Trumpty Dumpty” with a sub-headline reading: “Don (who couldn’t build a wall) had a great fall — can all the GOP’s men put the party back together again?”

“What Tuesday night’s results suggest is that Trump is perhaps the most profound vote repellant in modern American history,” John Podhoretz wrote. “The British political figure Oliver Cromwell once said about other British politicians who had overstayed their welcome and were ruining the country, ‘In the name of God, go!’ Yo, Toxic Trump: Scram.”
