Former President Trump clapped back at what he called false allegations by New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman who claimed a source close to him said he blamed Melania Trump for his endorsement of Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Trump took to Truth Social to clear the air of rumors and make it clear that he’s not angry in the least after advice to support Oz, who lost his Pennsylvania Senate race this week.
Of course, the media then attacked Trump for defending himself against unfounded claims by a leftist journalist who has previously made it evident that she despises him.
“Trump is indeed furious this morning, particularly about Mehmet Oz, and is blaming everyone who advised him to back Oz — including his wife, describing it as not her best decision, according to people close to him,” she tweeted on Wednesday.
Haberman’s scurrilous accusations were followed by CNN anchor Jim Accosta making similar allegations that numerous people claimed were untrue. He tweeted, “‘Trump is livid’ and ‘screaming at everyone,’ after last night’s disappointing midterm results for GOP, according to a Trump adviser. The adviser went on to slam the former president’s handpicked contenders: ‘they were all bad candidates.’ ‘Candidates matter,’ the adviser said.”

That is garbage. I was sitting with him at Mar-A-Lago watch party along with others until he retired to his living quarters. He was fine. He talked to press early on and circulated the MAL Ball Room as well. Why don't you name the "Advisor"?

This isn’t true, Jim. Whoever you are calling an advisor isn’t an actual advisor.
Does your editor know the name of your “source”? https://t.co/Hbtp1p5skg

If you actually think that a Trump advisor is talking to Jim Acosta, you probably have an IQ in the mid 50's.

On Thursday, Trump fired back on Truth Social, pummeling Haberman for what he called fake news.
“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. 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!” Trump stated via his social media platform.
Then Trump apologized to both his wife and Fox News host Sean Hannity.
“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. Our Country is in big trouble!” he wrote.
“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. 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,'” Trump quipped blasting the deserving media again in the process.
Haberman’s attack, as well as those by other leftist media talking heads, reeks of desperation and looks to be a blatant attempt to sow division within the ranks of the GOP so the party will dump Trump before 2024.
Trump is at his most vulnerable politically since Jan. 6, 2021. It's too soon to tell whether it will have a durable effect with voters, or whether an R or a few step in to try to capitalize on it. But there was an eagerness by some Rs to blame him for a lackluster night.
