Donald Trump and his allies took their big swing on Wednesday when they rolled out a New York Post article which used laughably suspect evidence to make false claims about Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and Ukraine. The whole thing failed so badly, Twitter ended up banning the article entirely, and the stunt surely didn’t gain Trump a single vote.
By midnight, Trump had just about had it. He posted this thoroughly frustrated tweet as everything was unraveling for him: “I’ve gone through years of a Fake, Illegal, and Totally Discredited Witch-Hunt, and now it’s revealed that it was a Hoax by the “other side”, which must pay a price for what they did. Think of where we’d be now without Fake & Fraudulent stories every night, for years!!!”
It’s worth noting that as things keep getting worse and worse for Donald Trump, he seems less focused on trying to turn things around and win the election, and more focused on fantasies about vengeance. This is never a good sign for someone in Trump’s position.
