Trump in for pummeling for poor midterms

Rupert Murdock publications jumped on former President Donald Trump in laying blame for the tepid Republican performance in the midterm elections. In a New York Post opinion piece conservative John Podhoretz called Trump “the most profound vote repellent in modern American history.” The Murdocks , Rupert and his son Lachlan, may have lost some trust in Trump partly over his refusal to accept the results of the 2020 election.

David A. Graham in The Atlantic, November 11, 2022, writes that Murdock, Mike Pompeo and others criticizing Trump will have little effect. “The traditional conservative establishment didn’t make Trump,” writes Graham,” and it can’t break him. If his political career is over, it will be because the voters who brought him to power decide to end it.”
