The former President, Donald Trump, expressed his strong displeasure towards Murdoch-owned media sites, unleashing on Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, on Sunday. This dissatisfaction resulted from a Wall Street Journal survey that inquired about voters’ perceptions of his “age and mentality,” as he described them.
The prominent Republican candidate expressed his discontent on the social media platform Truth Social, citing his recent victory in “the Senior Club Championship at a big golf club with many very good players” as evidence of his physical health.
Trump is 77 years old, whereas his potential opponent in the impending election, President Joe Biden, is 81. The electorate has expressed concern regarding the advanced age of both candidates, and the issue of cognitive ability has been the subject of extensive discussion. President Trump raises legitimate concerns about Biden’s age and mental capacity on a regular basis.
Biden is a walking mental disaster who almost daily forgets what he’s saying, stumbles over, lies, or tells untruths without evidently realizing it. Even Democrats are aware of the man’s substantial cognitive decline. Trump runs circles around the fellow, so his physical stamina and cognitive abilities should be beyond reproach.
When conservative media outlets inquired about his mental capabilities, he expressed vehement displeasure, and with good reason.
“In a phony and probably rigged Wall Street Journal poll, coming out of nowhere to softened the mental incompetence blow that is so obvious with Crooked Joe Biden, they ask about my age and mentality,” Trump posted on Truth Social. “Where did that come from? A few years ago I was the only one to agree to a mental acuity test, & ACED IT.”
The former president then issued a challenge to Murdoch, Biden, and Wall Street Journal executives to participate in “acuity tests.”
He ripped into both outlets, stating, “Now that the Globalists at Fox & the WSJ have failed to push their 3rd tier candidate to success, they do this. Well, I hereby challenge Rupert Murdoch & Sons, Biden, WSJ heads, to acuity tests!”
“I will name the place and the test, and it will be a tough one. Nobody will come even close to me,” Trump declared defiantly. “We can also throw some physical activity into it. I just won the Senior Club Championship at a big golf club, with many very good players. To do so you need strength, accuracy, touch and, above all, mental toughness. Ask Bret Baier (Fox), a very good golfer. The Wall Street Journal & Fox are damaged goods after their failed DeSanctimonious push & stupid $780,000,000 ‘settlement.’ MORONS!!!”
Trump continued in his standard scorched-earth social media style:
“Another “Milktoast” lightweight commentator put on by now ratings challenged FoxNews & the Globalist dummies at The Wall Street Journal, Maura Gillespie, just said that I wasn’t working as hard on the Republican campaign trail as some of my competitors. I just returned from 2 days of massive crowds in Iowa and South Dakota. Others drew “flies.” Also, tell lightweight “Maura,” that I am leading all of these so-called “hard workers,” by more than 50 Points, and Crooked Joe by a lot – NO ENERGY!”
He added in another post:
“The Globalist Wall Street Journal has lost most of its influence over the last few years. They are America Last, and rapidly going down the tubes. The Editorial Board doesn’t have a clue. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
Trump then tore into George Soros’ son, urging that he be defeated:
“We can’t let this spoiled little degenerate win. His daddy controls the D.A.’s and A.G.’s in America. They are destroying our Country. Mitch McConnell is helping them do it by doing NOTHING! An EMBARRASSMENT to the Republican Party. GET TOUGH REPUBLICANS!!!”
Trump, who has vowed to go after anyone who opposes him, criticized the pre-debate comments of Brit Hume and Bret Baier from Fox News on Wednesday night.
During a discussion about the viability of President Joe Biden, Hume argued that Biden’s renomination “depends on one thing: the expectation that Trump will be the Republican nominee.”
Baier made a remark about the absence of the former president and the manifest desire of numerous individuals to make an impact at the current event. “So, obviously the former president’s not here tonight, a lot of people trying to have a breakout moment on this stage. If one does, what do the Democrats and the Biden campaign do?”
In reply, Hume provided the following response:
I don’t think there is any doubt that if a candidate has a clear breakout moment either now or in the near future, and it appears to be on the verge of overtaking Donald Trump for the nomination or even close enough, the Democrats will scramble to find someone else to nominate because they believe Joe Biden can beat Donald Trump because he did so in the past. I doubt that they believe he could defeat almost anyone.
This provoked a strong response from Trump, which he shared on the Truth Social platform.
“I AM LEADING BIDEN IN ALMOST ALL POLLS! LEADING REPUBLICANS BY 50 POINTS,” asserted the former president in all caps. “FOX NEWS REFUSES TO POST OR DISCUSS. BRIT HUME, WORKING WITH RINO BRET BAIER, IS DELUSIONAL!!!”
Trump added in another post:
“NO, I’M THE ONE THAT THE DEMOCRATS DON’T WANT TO RUN AGAINST. They said the same thing in 2016. How did that work out? We did MUCH better in the Rigged Election of 2020. The RINOS and DEMS are all about DISINFORMATION! @brithume @bretbaier”
