Former President Donald Trump has been referred to by many things over the course of the last couple of years. Most have been undeserved, such as “racist”, “homophobic”, and the rest of the grab bag of buzzwords so many on the left use with irresponsible abandon. But plenty he has been more deserving of. One doesn’t think that even the staunchest of Trump supporters could dispute the charge that Trump is “bombastic”, “loud”, and “uncouth”. Indeed, these personality traits are what guided many people to support him. One trait that has never really been ascribed to him the “apologetic”;. Thanks to some recent updates in the news, that just might change.
It is now being reported by The Hill that:
Former President Trump on Thursday apologized to his wife Melania Trump and Fox News host Sean Hannity for reports circulating about their reaction to his endorsement of Republican Senate candidate Mehmet Oz, dismissing the accounts as “fictional stories.”
“I’d like to apologize to Melania and Sean Hannity for all of the Fake News and fictional stories (made up out of thin air, with no sources despite them claiming there are!), being dumped on you by reporters and ‘News’ Organizations who know these stories are not true,” Trump said on Truth Social.
“The Fake News Media is ‘Crazed’ and totally out of control. I only wish the public could understand how really corrupt and crooked they are. They MAKE UP stories and then push them down your throats. Our Country is in big trouble!” Trump added.
The Hill went on to report that:
New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who has closely followed the former president for years, said Wednesday that Trump spent the day after the midterms “furious” after congressional Republicans failed to produce a “red wave” of significant wins over Democrats.
It was further reported by Newsweek that:
Trump directly took aim at Haberman in an earlier Truth Social post on Thursday, again lambasting her information as “fake.”
“First of all Oz is a wonderful guy who really worked hard and was a very good candidate, but he WAS LONG IN THE RACE before I ever Endorsed him, they had NOTHING to do with it…& I was not at all ANGRY,” the post read.
Newsweek went on to report that:
One expert told Newsweek last week that the outcomes of races where he has thrown his support behind a candidate are important to Trump and others in the GOP because they are a test of his continued influence and power in the party. That could be particularly important as he is anticipated to soon announce another presidential run for 2024.
But while several of Trump’s endorsed candidates scored notable wins, such as JD Vance and Ted Budd’s U.S. Senate victories in Ohio and North Carolina respectively, not all of his endorsements resulted in victory.
It has certainly been an interesting couple of week for Donald Trump. In fact, The Raging Patriot recently reported that Next Tuesday, November 15, is the date that every political pundit has marked on their calendar. On November 15, Donald Trump will be making an announcement showing that “Trump derangement syndrome” comes in different forms. Many political pundits are putting on their Nostradamus hats while others are stating Trump’s 2024 presidential run as a fact. Fox News is in limbo because of the infectious “Trump derangement syndrome.” Some pundits on Fox News are blaming Trump, while others are anxiously waiting for November 15. It is becoming more apparent that the Republican party is divided. There are Republicans like McCarthy and McConnell who want to keep the “Uni-party” on the Hill, while there are Republicans like Kari Lake and Marjorie Taylor Greene who are willing to take the bull by the horns.
