The virtually constantly Donald Trump-friendly New York Post known as the president out in a stunning, scathing editorial Sunday on his tried “coup” attacking a authentic, democratic election — and advised him to get again to work.
“Mr. President, it’s time to end this dark charade,” the editorial started within the tabloid, owned by Trump’s right-wing backer Rupert Murdoch.
“We’re one week away from an enormously important moment for the next four years of our country,” which he must be specializing in, it added, referring to the double Senate runoff in Georgia on Jan. 5.
“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,” the piece slammed.
“You had every right to investigate the election,” the editorial added. “But let’s be clear: Those efforts have found nothing.”
The newspaper lashed Trump’s fringe lawyer ally Sidney Powell, who’s difficult election ends in court docket, as “a crazy person.” Trump’s former nationwide safety adviser Michael Flynn “suggesting martial law” to maintain the president within the White House is “tantamount to treason,” the Post wrote. “It is shameful.”
The Post urged Trump to put aside his election charade and focus as a substitute on the Georgia races, which is able to decide which get together controls the Senate.
“If Georgia falls … you will leave your party out of power,” the editorial warned. “Democrats will try to write you off as a one-term aberration and, frankly, you’re helping them do it: The King Lear of Mar-a-Lago, ranting about the corruption of the world.”
It concluded: “If you insist on spending your final days in office threatening to burn it all down, that will be how you are remembered. Not as a revolutionary, but as the anarchist holding the match.”
