This is a wild story.

Fox News has taken a particularly strange interest in attacking former President Donald Trump following the midterm elections.

Fox is now reporting that Trump is furious about Republican Mehmet Oz losing to Democrat John Fetterman in the Pennsylvania Senate race and he is blaming his wife Melania Trump over the loss.

Fox reported that New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who has a close connection to Trump’s inner circle said, “Trump is indeed furious this morning, particularly about Mehmet Oz, and is blaming everyone who advised him to back Oz – including his wife, describing it as not her best decision, according to people close to him.”

Haberman then said, “There are people pushing Trump to reschedule his announcement next week, and several Rs have texted asking whether he will, but it’s risky and would be acknowledging he’s wounded by yesterday, something that some of his advisers insist is not the case. Worth remembering that Trump is a grown man who endorsed Oz over the objection of some of the people closest to him, and instead went beyond just endorsing and attacked Dave McCormick from the stage at a rally.”

While it is unknown if Trump actually does blame his wife for Oz’s defeat, it is true that not all of Trump’s endorsed candidates did as well as expected when comparing them to other Republicans.

A number of political pundits on both sides of the aisle have said these midterm elections have been bad new for Trump and his potential 2024 run.
