“All the News That’s Fit to Print,” is the famous New York Times’ slogan which still appears on the masthead of the newspaper today. If the New York Post had a slogan on the masthead it would probably be, “All the News That’s Approved by Donald Trump.”
The Trump-friendly Post published a scathing editorial Sunday blasting the president for his attempted coup attacking a legitimate, democratic election, admonishing him to get back to work.
Now that the New York tabloid that has been loyal to Trump throughout his chaotic administration has turned against him, the stable genius should realize that the gig is up.
“Mr. President, it’s time to end this dark charade,” the editorial began. No shit! Indeed, Trump has exhausted his legal and extralegal avenues to steal the election from Joe Biden.
The post didn’t appeal to Trump’s sense of morality or warn him that his crusade to steal the election is undermining our democracy. They took a more pragmatic approach and urged him to end his election charade and focus instead on the Georgia runoff races, which will determine which party controls the Senate.
But Trump doesn’t care if the Democrats regain control of the Senate, he doesn’t care about the Republican party, he doesn’t care about democracy, he cares only about himself.
The Post editorial will fall on deaf ears, Trump will sulk and pout and continue trying to steal the election until January 20, 2021.
