The trifecta is now complete. Fox News was the first to announce that Donald Trump had lost, then the Wall Street Journal did an editorial telling Trump that the election was over and time to move on and now the New York Post is telling him to give it up already. All three are outlets owned by Rupert Murdoch.
it’s interesting when a tabloid does an editorial on a tabloid *president.* This is not something you’re likely to see again, take note. New York Post:
On Jan. 5, two runoff races in Georgia will determine which party will control the Senate — whether Joe Biden will have a rubber stamp or a much-needed check on his agenda.
Unfortunately, you’re obsessed with the next day, Jan. 6, when Congress will, in a pro forma action, certify the Electoral College vote. You have tweeted that, as long as Republicans have “courage,” they can overturn the results and give you four more years in office.
In other words, you’re cheering for an undemocratic coup. […]
Sidney Powell is a crazy person. Michael Flynn suggesting martial law is tantamount to treason. It is shameful.
The New York Post’s pitch is that Trump needs to give up the insanity, as the front page indicates, and secure his legacy, by getting Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue elected. It does come down to that now, doesn’t it, control of the senate.
If Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler win, they will prevent Biden from rolling back what you have accomplished. A Republican Senate can pressure Biden against returning to the old, failed Iran deal, can stop him from throwing open our southern border, will prevent him from packing the court.
Now imagine a government controlled by your nemeses — Nancy Pelosi in the House, Chuck Schumer in the Senate, Joe Biden in the White House. How high will taxes go? How many of your initiatives will be strangled? And, on a personal note, do you think they won’t spend the next four years torturing you with baseless hearings and investigations?
Consider this. You came out of nowhere to win the presidency. Not an elected official, not a lawyer, not beholden to any particular faction of the swamp. You took on the elites and the media who had long lost touch with average working people. You changed politics, which is something few in American history can say.
Appealing to Trump’s ego is the way to go, no question about that. “You should use your considerable charm and influence to support the Georgia candidates, mobilizing your voters for them. Focus on their success, not your own grievances, as we head into the final week.”
If Trump is going to get a handle on this, he’s going to have to shut down Lin Wood pretty fast and then once and for all admit defeat and tell the base that it’s time to move on. I’m not holding my breath for it. I don’t think that he can publicly admit that he has lost and without that admission, how does he stop the MAGAts in Georgia who were booing Loeffler and Perdue just a week ago because they weren’t doing enough to overturn the election? This is a sticky wicket, alright.
