This was shocking to see.

It has now been learned that the editorial board for both the New York Post and Wall Street Journal have lifted their support from former President Donald Trump.

This is a shocking fact to learn since both of these media companies is owned by none other than longtime Trump supporter Rupert Murdoch.

Both the New York Post and Wall Street Journal even went as far as saying that Trump was “unworthy” to be president again for his “damning” silence surrounding the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

According to Huff Post, the editorial board wrote, “As his followers stormed the Capitol, calling on his vice president to be hanged, President Donald Trump sat in his private dining room, watching TV, doing nothing. For three hours, seven minutes.”

The editorial board then said, “Trump only wanted one thing during that infamous afternoon: to pressure Vice President Mike Pence to decertify the election of Joe Biden. He thought the violence of his loyal followers would make Pence crack, or delay the vote altogether.”

The Wall Street Journal then said, “Mr. Trump took an oath to defend the Constitution, and he had a duty as Commander in Chief to protect the Capitol from a mob attacking it in his name. He refused.”

It’s sad to see the conservative media turn their backs on Trump like this.
