Former President Donald Trump has finally addressed the consequential news that media mogul Rupert Murdoch is stepping down as Fox Corporation’s chairman.
On Thursday, Murdoch officially broke the news that his son Lachlan will be stepping into his shoes leaving much of the conservative right waiting for Trump’s reaction.
Trump cited “many people” giving him credit for forcing Murdich into retirement but claimed that he “did not believe” that to be true. Instead, he took the opportunity to blast another powerful conservative foe, Mitch McConnell, who he blames for giving “Radical Left Lunatics, together with his small band of automatic “yes” votes, EVERYTHING they want.”
Trump wrote on Truth Social:
Many people are saying that,”You forced Rupert Murdoch into retirement!” I do not believe this is so, but while we’re at it, how about getting rid of “Democrat” Mitch McConnell, who gives the Radical Left Lunatics, together with his small band of automatic “yes” votes, EVERYTHING they want. There is ZERO Republican Leadership in the United States Senate. MAGA!!!
