President Trump was supposedly kicking the dog and putting his fist through windows – not literally – because Republicans didn’t do as well as expected in the midterms.
Fox News’ Brooke Singman actually got to speak with him.
“There is a fake news narrative that I was furious — it is just the opposite,” Trump told Fox News Digital. “The people I endorsed did very well. I was batting 98.6% in the primaries, and 216 to 19 in the general election — that is amazing.”
Early in the day, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman had tweeted out the following gossip:
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.

How bad did Trump actually do? Candidates like JD Vance in Ohio, Ron Johnson in Wisconsin, and Ted Budd in North Carolina were all heavily backed by Trump, and all won.
Also winning, another individual Trump first got elected governor a few years ago: Ron DeSantis.

Trump has become one of those shorthaired anklebiter dogs that aren’t dangerous just highly snnoying. He launched a movement but is not capable of continuing it. The conservative movement cannot hinge upon a lone wolf character. We need someone who can appeal to disillusioned leftists poised to abandon their partys positions unless the right wishes to be trounced in every election cycle. Politics is the art of compromise and Trump does not do that, even to the point of supporting insurgents without regard.
Yes, I agree with you. I have to say Trumps quick anger and his penchant for insulting fellow Republicans is grating on my nerves. The GOP does poorly when it really matters, because it cannot stay cohesive and unified, like Democrats do. The Party seems chaotic most of the time.
Hagerman the NYT hack is a pathetic writer and a denier. There we go, lets turn the tables on all this denier chatter. She denies, Trump has traction when he does, she denies Biden is failing, she denies Hocul is bad for NY and NYC. She denies inflation.
She denies that God has a place at the table.
She is the Chief Deny Editor.
But honestly, does anyone also think that DJT simply took some of these losses as an oh well kind of moment?
I support Trump in 2016 and 2020. Would like to support him again. I hesitate because I am not sure he has learned from past experience. Should he run and win again, would he pick better personnel than in his first term? Can he broaden his appeal beyond conservatives? Can he possibly appeal to voters who have been turned off by his personality (not his policies)? Can he convince voters, including non-socialist Democrats, that he can repeat his positive economic performance from his first term and that therefore they should ditch the progressive left? I don’t know. But I also don’t know yet whether DeSantis is the person to replace Trump. Can DeSantis – or anyone – appeal to the non-Trump Republicans (not the enver-Trumpers, they are fools and they are lost) and to non-socialist Democrats?
