A scathing editorial in Saturday’s New York Post lashed former President Donald Trump for “obsessing” over the 2020 presidential election, and urged Republicans to desert him prior to now and transfer on.
Revered officers like former Lawyer Common Invoice Barr name his rants “nonsense,” the editorial added. “This isn’t nearly Liz Cheney. Mitch McConnell, Betsy DeVos, Mark Meadows — all of them knew Trump was delusional. His personal daughter and son-in-law testified it was bull.”
The previous president might have quietly stored a low profile following the bombshell listening to Thursday by the Jan. 6 Home choose committee investigating the riot.
As a substitute, the editorial famous, “Donald Trump, the King Lear of Mar-a-Lago, determined to tweet — er, Reality — one more assertion confirming that he refuses to just accept actuality. ‘January sixth was not merely a protest,’ he wrote, ‘it represented the best motion within the historical past of our Nation to Make America Nice Once more.’”
It “wasn’t, in fact. It was a nationwide disgrace — one which neither Democrats nor Trump can cease obsessing over. It’s time for Republicans to maneuver on,” the Submit snapped again.
“In the meantime, experiences that Trump was happy that the Jan. 6 crowd chanted for Vice President Mike Pence to be hanged — a really reprehensible sentiment — makes him unworthy for the workplace. Trump can’t look previous 2020. Let him stay there,” the editorial concluded.
