Murdoch media group, former Trump supporters, use ‘Toxic Trump’ ‘TRUMPTY DUMPTY’ as descriptions

Celebrity Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. that consists of Fox News on TV and The New York Post in print media have turned against their 2016 favorite Donald Trump. Despite the Jan 6 insurrection, conservative news channel Fox News and the New York Post stood with Trump but the recent midterms has led to a possible breakup as Trump has been described as both “ToxicTrump” and “TRUMPTY DUMPTY.”

On Thursday, The New York Post’s headline read “TRUMPTY DUMPTY” in capital letters. The caption also said: “Don (who couldn’t build a great wall) had a great fall—can all the GOP’s men put the party back together again?”

The paper was parodying a famous nursery rhyme
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the King’s horses and all the King’s men
Could not put Humpty Dumpty together again.

The recently concluded midterm results have fallen much below the GOP’s expectations. Donald Trump had endorsed 300 candidates some of whom lost and the others are trailing, as of now. The Republicans are expected to take the House but with a slim majority. The Senate race is still very close and might be decided in December after a runoff in Georgia.

The much anticipated red wave in the midterms has almost totally fizzled out, despite trumpeting from the party lead. Although the GOP might come ahead, it cannot sweep through legislations, according to its wish and might have to work in a bipartisan manner, after President Joe Biden publicly announced that he was willing to work with the Republicans. Voters will be watching the performance of their elected representatives in the next two years.

While Trump’s candidates have faired poorly in the midterms, a rising younger star among the Republicans has done well, despite taunts from Donald Trump including “Ron DeSanctimonious.” Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, retained his position with a 20-point lead over his Democratic opponent.

On Wednesday, The New York Post lauded Ron Desantis’ victory with the words “DeFUTURE.” The caption also said “Young GOP star DeSantis romps to victory in Florida.”

Tangent: The times, they are a-changing. Although conservative values might matter to a large number of Americans, toxicity and mockery of opposition from some conservative representatives might be on the way out, finally after seeing a strong resurgence after 2016.

Recently, celebrity rapper Kanye West was canceled for his anti-semitic remarks by businesses and celebrity friends. Hopefully this trend of holding people, who comment on race, religion and gender, responsible for their toxic words becomes popular so the nation comes together as a whole to uphold American values and put behind the toxicity and violence that had become the norm these past few years.

Is it time to dump Trump with no red wave? Midterm results too close to call
