Since he started campaigning for GOP candidates in the run-up to the midterm elections, former President Donald Trump has come under fire. Even Republican supporters who called out against him after he described Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as “Ron DeSanctimonious” throughout a final pre-midterm rally in Pennsylvania have spoken out against him after Election Day on Wednesday.
Trump has been a strong advocate for Dr. Mehmet Oz during the election, which has drawn criticism from a number of people, most notably one of his most ardent critics in the media, Maggie Hagaman of the New York Times. Hagaman said something that Trump didn’t like after Oz’s shocking defeat to John Fetterman, which led to his publicly apologizing to Sean Hannity of Fox News and the former First Lady Melania Trump.
Trump apologized to Melania Trump and Sean Hannity in a social media post on Thursday for all the “fictional stories made up out of thin air, with no sources despite them claiming there are, being dumped on you by reporters who should know better,” according to Slay News.
In his online tirade, he said, “There is a Fake Story being promulgated by third-rate reporter Maggie Hagaman of the Failing New York Times, that I am blaming our great former First Lady, Melania, and Sean Hannity, that I was angry with their pushing me to Endorse Dr. Oz.”
In his post thread on Truth Social, Trump apologized and continued to denounce the post-midterm charges.
“First of all Oz is a wonderful guy who really worked hard and was a very good candidate, but he WAS LONG IN THE RACE before I ever Endorsed him, they had NOTHING to do with it, he was not a ‘denier’ (his mistake!), & I was not at all ANGRY. Fake News!”
“I’d like to apologize to Melania and Sean Hannity for all of the Fake News and fictional stories (made up out of thin air, with no sources despite them claiming there are!), being dumped on you by reporters and ‘News’ Organizations who know these stories are not true,”
“The Fake News Media is ‘Crazed’ and totally out of control,”
“I only wish the public could understand how really corrupt and crooked they are,”
“They MAKE UP stories and then push them down your throats,”
“Despite having picked so many winners, I have to put up with the Fake News.”

His frustration didn’t end there, as he blasted reports that he was enraged over several of his handpicked Republican candidates losing their midterm election bids.
“For those many people that are being fed the fake narrative from the corrupt media that I am Angry about the Midterms, don’t believe it,” Trump said on Truth Social. “I am not at all angry, did a great job (I wasn’t the one running!), and am very busy looking into the future.”
“Remember, I am a ‘Stable Genius,’” he added. CONTINUE READING…
