As 2022 winds to close, Donald Trump finds himself in an accelerating downward spiral of legal, political, and personal distress. His mood is decidedly dour and consumed by hate. And true to form, he is handling it like a colicky infant who thinks his whining and tantrums will deliver relief from the misery that is plaguing him from all sides.

Trump’s 2022 tribulations are bound to torment him well into 2023. They include disclosure of the financial fiascos revealed in his tax returns that were just released after years of fearful defiance; the criminal charges stemming from his incitement of the January 6th insurrection and his theft and hoarding of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago hotel/home; the ongoing probes by Special Counsel Jack Smith and the Department of Justice; and his plummeting political prospects of returning to the White House in 2024.

On this New Year’s Eve Trump is fixated on the media that he despises for daring to report what he actually does and says. He is an avowed opponent of of the First Amendment. His assaults on the free press were a hallmark of his presidency, and they have continued uninterrupted in the months since his defeat for reelection.
Consequently, no one will be surprised by the yammering on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, where he posted a link to an article in the Washington Post about the hard times that American newspapers are facing. He said that…
“Many of these newspapers are going out of business because they only know how to report Fake News. Hopefully the Amazon Washington Post and the Failing New York Times will soon be among the group! Nobody will continue to sustain such losses, especially for a product undeserving of our once great Nation.”
Trump is veritably giddy that American businesses are hurting. So much for “America First.” And it’s ironic that he’s citing the Washington Post, that he thinks is “fake news,” as his source. Apparently when he sees a headline that he likes – in this case “Newspapers are disappearing where democracy needs them most“ – WaPo becomes a reputable news enterprise. However, It’s unlikely that Trump read beyond the headline, because this article laments the failures of small, conservative newspapers that mostly serve rural communities that are largely populated by Republicans.
Trump did once say once that he “loves the poorly educated,” so his aversion to the availability of news would be consistent with achieving that state of ignorance for his cult followers. Trump went on to post more attacks on the media, digging into his kindergarten bag of insults to say that…
“The Failing New York Times is Fake and Corrupt News. Their motto should be, ALL THE FAKE NEWS THAT’S UNFIT TO PRINT. They are the Enemy of the People!”
It’s nauseating how Trump is so eager to trash American businesses and so full of hope for hardship for American workers. But it’s no less than what is expected from him after establishing himself as the nation’s most anti-American politician. It’s notable, though, that Trump also took a swipe at his Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News), whining that…
“Wow!!! So while Trump Hating CNN & MSNBC (MSDNC!) RATINGS are both at record lows, numbers that they have never seen before (‘they’re toast’), Fox News Ratings are also way down because they never say ‘Trump’ or TRUTH, never talk about the Rigged Presidential Election, and is a Fake Polling Network. Our giant MAGA base, much bigger than anyone knows, does not like watching Fox play their games. Their Ratings will continue to sink. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
For the record, Trump has predicted the demise of CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and most other news organizations, for years. And as usual, his predictions have failed to comport with reality. For someone who worked on television for fourteen years, he is profoundly ignorant of how it operates. Ratings are down for virtually everything on TV due to increased competition, such as that from streaming services and the return of patrons to movie theaters.
However, Trump’s animosity toward Fox News is particularly curious considering it’s the home of devout Trump-fluffers like Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, and the “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends. But he is known for disparaging anyone who is less than totally worshipful, so even his toadies at Fox News are targets of his wrath. Which is endlessly entertaining for the rest of America.

We know that Trumpler’s ‘Untruth Antisocial’ faux-Twitter is floundering, but do we know just how few adherents it actually has? I’m sure the Great Orange Dickhead himself is convinced it has millions of rabid followers, no matter the reality, but I’d love to know the truth.
My New Year’s wish is, that TUMP goes out of business forever and into a prison for the rest of his rotten, sorry life. It would serve him right after the damage he has done here in the United States. Make him pay restitution immediately to all the people who have been stiffed by him. Make him pay for the millions of dollars worth of damages during the JAN 6 riots. I would guess the total amount would exceed a few billion dollars. Make his net worth zero. Down with Fascism, and a big hooray for Democracy!!
Trump’s unending pieces of dribble have already formed a vast river of frantic disinformation. Did anyone notice each time he talks (rants) he refers to himself in the first person.? Trump this, Trump that. If I were him, I wouldn’t apply my name to idiocy. And Washington Post, New York times are reputable newspapers And other news sources mentioned in this post. Plus truthful social medias. Trump is only encouraging them to print more, actual TRUMP news. Reminds me, New Years Eve, my 3 yr old Granddaughter kept running around, “Actually?” Even she could tell Trump what is “actual”. Happy New Year, John. Hopefully your wishes will become true.
Third person, guest, is what Trump uses, when he’s trying to elevate himself above the mere mortal plane.
Happy New year to you too, guest. And i hope all of your wishes will become true too… One of my wishes would be that TUMP would disappear forever and never ever come back. My daughter showed me a clip of some guy that was interviewing ignorant hicks at a TUMP rally, and all of them were bragging about how great TUMP is and how bad Pres. Biden is. They were all saying he was the best thing that ever happened to the United States and how he will be back in 2024 to get the USA our of the mess the nation is in right now because of Biden and the Democrats. They said he is the greatest President ever. I don’t know where this rally was, but i would guess it was in the south by the way these hicks talked and how dumb and ignorant these hicks were. It really made me angry and appalled at how stupid and ignorant people are that worship the orange baboon. These dumb hicks believe every lie TUMP tells and the ladies that were interviewed said he was charming and nice. These people are sick and in need of professional mental health experts. I don’t know where they got the idea that TUMP did a lot for the USA while he was Dictator. TUMP did absolutely nothing for the United States except to try to destroy it and cause rampant hate and division. Donald TUMP is nothing but a worthless piece of rotting garbage. I would guess ignorance is bliss for his many brainless and clueless followers..
How about the brainless Germans who loved , “Hail Hitler!” I worry 34 members of Congress who participated in Trump’s insurrection , hicks, reorganized domestic terrorists, rally nitwits, drag us into a “hail Trump!” government.
And who would say Trump is “charming and nice”? They don’t realize Trump is the world’s greatest con-artist.
I agree, Hitler was a super con artist that had huge crowds of German citizens doing their ”Hail Hitler” salutes and thought he was their savior. Look what happened to that, most of them were dead by the end of WW2. The people that were interviewed at that rally were really the gullible, ignorant type of people. I have been around people like that since i was a child and they can’t be reasoned with at all. My ex wife’s sister is a TUMP fanatic and she is eat up with dumb and stupid and gullible. She even started crying when her daughter, (who is a dedicated Democrat) tried to tell her how bad TUMP is. Now that is dedicated TUMP cult follower if i have ever seen one. She has MAGA hats and shirts and the whole collection of TUMP things. My ex wife is living with her now and i haven’t seen or spoken to her in 8 months now. A dedicated TUMP cult follower will NOT believe anything derogatory that she is told about Donald TUMP…. Like is said, these MAGA idiots cannot be reasoned with. TUMP does no wrong in their diseased minds…
