Trump's indignity, by Javier Otaola


The New York Post is a newspaper founded by Alexander Hamilton, one of the Fathers of the American Constitution of 1776 and is —also— one of the most important heads of the republican press that from the beginning has maintained a more favorable position towards Donald Trump . That newspaper is owned by Rupert Murdoch, one of Donald Trump's early supporters and who has maintained a reluctant position to condemn Trump since the start of the Commission of Inquiry into the Assault on Capitol Hill on January 6 of this year; but, after all the statements made in parliament and everything that the whole world has learned about the criminal behavior of then President Trump, things have reached the limit and on July 22 the New York Post, despite its marked Conservatism and its sympathy for right-wing policies has delivered a political verdict that can be considered the beginning of the end for Donald Trump:

The NYP editorial begins: “While his supporters stormed the Capitol, calling for his vice president to be hanged, President Donald Trump sat in his private dining room, watching TV, doing nothing. For three hours, seven minutes" (Let's not forget that this irruption was armed and violent and caused 9 deaths)

The New York Post does not dare to launch a criminal conviction against Trump and declares that it will be the judiciary that will dictate whether or not such conduct is criminal, but does not hesitate to ensure that it has become crystal clear that the sole purpose of that conscious inactivity was to block the peaceful transfer of presidential power and ends by stating: "As a matter of principle, as a matter of character, Trump has shown that he is not worthy of being the chief executive of this country again."

Another Murdoch newspaper, the Wall Street Journal, has published a similar critique, declaring that Trump, who took an oath to uphold the Constitution and had an obligation to protect the Capitol from the crowds he encouraged to march there, knowing further that that crowd was armed:

"He [Trump] refused. He didn't call the military to send help. He didn't call [Mike] Pence to check on the safety of his loyal [vice president]. Instead, he fueled the anger of the violent mob and let it develop. the riot."

In contrast to Trump's baseness and indignity, M. Pence's constitutional loyalty and civil courage in the exercise of his functions as Vice President is gigantic and thus says the WSJ: "Character is revealed in a crisis, and Mr. Pence passed his test on January 6. Mr. Trump completely failed in his."

After Trump sought to ridicule the heroism of McCain who was taken prisoner in the Vietnam War—when Trump has never served his country in the military—Murdoch wrote on Twitter: “When will Donald Trump stop shaming his friends, and his friends? the whole country?". Trump's villainy has never been hidden by the character who has not had any qualms about ridiculing -imitating him- a journalist suffering from a physical handicap who asked him uncomfortable questions.

As a result of the incriminating statements and the tests carried out in the bipartisan Congressional Commission in which the Republican party is represented by Mary Cheney, the daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney, there is a general conviction that by action and omission what happened in the assault to the Capitol was a real coup by Trump to prevent the peaceful transfer of presidential powers.

Surely the most stubborn sectors of republicanism will not change their opinions, they are prisoners of their own radicalism and will continue to consider that everything is a case of "obsessive partisan defamation against Trump"; but apart from the fact that a criminal accusation is filed against Trump, the truth is that the general conviction is making its way that Donald Trump has been and continues to be a monstrous anomaly in the institutional history of the Great North American Republic and that it is also of a person who has clearly demonstrated that he is unworthy of holding the office of President and Commander-in-Chief of the United States of North America.

From now on, everything Trump does to deny the undeniable will only confirm his unworthiness.
