(MENAFN- Newsroom Panama)
The New York Post has fully turned its back on Donald Trump following the Republican Party's faltering performance in the midterms, describing the former president as a 'toxic' influence who has 'sabotaged' the party.
The day after the GOP failed to see the predicted 'red wave' in the House, with a chance the Democrats could still control the Senate, The Post—which Trump once declared his 'favorite newspaper'—ran a front page depicting the former president as Humpty Dumpty sitting on a wall with the headline 'Trumpty Dumpty.'
The front page also mocks Trump's failure to live out his key 2016 presidential campaign promise to build a wall across the U.S.-Mexico border. It picks on his failure to fill the House and Senate with his MAGA and election-denying candidates on November 8, ultimately leading to the GOP's poor performance.
'Don (who couldn't build a wall) had a great fall—can all the GOP's men put the party back together again?' The Post's standfirst said.
The former president is further attacked in a column by The Post's John Podhoretz entitled 'Here's how Donald Trump sabotaged the Republican midterms.'
In the opinion piece, Podhoretz said that the 2022 midterms are now the third straight national election—following the 2018 midterms and the 2020 presidential election—in which either Trump, the GOP, or both, were 'hammered' by the electorate
