Former President Trump took to his TRUTH Social platform on Monday night, and fired off a message slamming a reporter who quoted sources that that the “magic is gone” for his reelection campaign.
The reporter, Olivia Nuzzi, wrote a piece in the New York Magazine titled The Final Campaign, ran under a pointed subtitle: “Inside Donald Trump’s sad, lonely, thirsty, broken, basically pretend run for re-election. (Which isn’t to say he can’t win).”
The piece quoted numerous anonymous advisers, including one who said: “It’s not there. In this business, you can have it and have it so hot and it can go overnight and it’s gone and you can’t get it back. I think we’re just seeing it’s gone. The magic is gone.”
Trump responded on Monday night:
The Fake & Corrupt News is only getting worse! As an example, I agreed to do a short telephone interview for a once very good, but now on its “last legs” and failing, New York Magazine. The reporter was a shaky & unattractive wack job, known as “tough” but dumb as a rock, who actually wrote a decent story about me a long time ago. Her name, Olivia Nuzzi. Anyway, the story was Fake News, her “anonymous sources” don’t exist (true with many writers), and I’m happily fighting hard for our GREAT USA!

Talk about maligning rocks?
Nuzzi, who is a great reporter and has shafted politicians on both sides of the aisle responded to trump’s “dumb as a rock” commentary by tweeting back a wordless photo of the “Stable Genius” standing on the White House patio in July 2017 staring directly upwards into a full solar eclipse w/o sunglasses.
“magic is gone” — so now the liberal media are accusing Trump of witchcraft? Well, the Democrats already revived “sedition” laws to silent politically incorrect speech, so maybe they plan to try the non-WOKE for witchcraft and sorcery (BTW, “witchcraft” is technically still a crime in states that never repealed “common law crimes”).
Akuperma: Couldn’t agree more. We haven’t had a good “witch burning” since Salem Mass circa 1693.
I know nothing about Ms Nuzzi but her writing ability and vocabulary far exceeds Trump’s. If she’s “as dumb as a rock”, what is he?
What a mature insult.
