“A Man From Florida”
The New York Post mocks Donald Trump

Former US President Donald Trump is known for many things, but not a small ego. After losing the midterms, a former comrade declared him a nobody: Rupert Murdoch’s newspaper “New York Post” ridiculed Trump’s renewed candidacy for the presidency.
Right-wing newspaper New York Post responded to former US President Donald Trump’s renewed bid for the presidency with sharp sarcasm. The paper, which is part of the Murdoch media empire, sent its readers to page 26 on Wednesday, writing simply “Florida Man Max Notice” at the bottom of its front page.
There it reads, in a short text full of humor: “720 days before the next election, a Florida retiree announced Tuesday evening that he is running for president in a surprising way.” “Avid golfer Donald J. Trump” announced that Mar-a-Lago “sees no political pundit coming,” “his resort and library for classified documents.”
The “New York Post” noted the issue of classified documents that Trump took with him to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida after he was in the White House. The tabloid also noted that if elected in 2024, Trump would be 78 years old, the same age as Joe Biden, the oldest president in US history, when he took office. “His cholesterol level is unknown, but his favorite food is grilled steak in ketchup.”

Trump announced Tuesday evening at Mar-a-Lago that he will run for president again in 2024 and wants to retake the White House. An announcement was expected. But it comes at a time when the right-wing populist is suffering politically after his Republican party’s weak performance in last week’s midterm elections.
Conservative billionaire Rupert Murdoch’s media – including the “Wall Street Journal” and the conservative news channel Fox News in addition to the New York Post – had already clearly distanced themselves from Trump after the midterms, deeming him a “loser.” “Republican appointee. You’ve reported very favorably on Trump over the past few years.
Viewers were not missed when Fox News repeatedly pulled out of the live broadcast of Trump’s hour-long speech Tuesday evening and allowed his moderators to have their say. Trump must win the Republican primary for the 2024 presidential nomination. The 76-year-old may be politically ill, but he remains hugely popular with conservative voters.
