Since he began campaigning for GOP candidates ahead of the elections, former President Donald Trump has been under fire. Since Election Day on Wednesday, even Republican allies have spoken out against him when he referred to Florida governor Ron DeSantis as “Ron DeSanctimonious” during his final rally prior to the midterm elections in Pennsylvania.
Throughout the race, Trump has been a prominent backer of Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, which has garnered him criticism, most notably from Maggie Hagaman of the New York Times, one of his most prominent media enemies. After Oz’s shocking loss to John Fetterman, Hagaman said something that Trump did not appreciate, resulting in his publicly apologizing to former First Lady Melania Trump and his close media buddy, Sean Hannity of Fox News.
Slay News claimed that in a Thursday social media post, Trump apologized to Melania Trump and Sean Hannity for all the “fictional stories made up out of thin air, with no sources despite them claiming there are, being dumped on you by reporters.”
“There is a Fake Story being promulgated by third-rate reporter Maggie Hagaman of the Failing New York Times, that I am blaming our great former First Lady, Melania, and Sean Hannity, that I was angry with their pushing me to Endorse Dr. Oz,” he added in the online rant.
In his post thread on Truth Social, Trump proceeded to refute the charges made after the midterms and issued an apology.
“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, he was not a ‘denier’ (his mistake!), & I was not at all ANGRY. Fake News!
“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.
“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.
“Despite having picked so many winners, I have to put up with the Fake News.
His anger did not end there, however, as he denounced rumors that he was furious that some of his selected Republican candidates lost their midterm election campaigns.
“For those many people that are being fed the fake narrative from the corrupt media that I am Angry about the Midterms, don’t believe it,” Trump said on Truth Social. “I am not at all angry, did a great job (I wasn’t the one running!), and am very busy looking into the future.”
“Remember, I am a ‘Stable Genius,’” he added.
