When a conservative news outlet ran a scathing editorial on Wednesday calling former President Donald Trump “unable” to ever regain political power, they certainly expected a backlash from MAGA.
But few would have anticipated the extent to which the Washington Examinera long-established conservative Beltway publication, was torn apart by fellow conservatives who branded the outlet “controlled opposition” and “RINO-funded.”
“Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony on Tuesday should be the death knell for former President Donald Trump’s political career,” the newspaper’s editorial board wrote of the former Trump aide, who presented bombastic revelations to the January 6 committee earlier in the week. “Trump is incapable of ever coming back to power.”
After the release is the testerEditor-in-Chief Seth Mandel tweeted the storyonly for his post to become fodder for a mob of Conservatives.
“Just say here [sic] for the relationship,” former Trump legal adviser Jenna Ellis fired back as the angry replies rolled down Mandel’s feed. The Examiner editor did not respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment Thursday.
Julie Kelly, a January 6 truther and American Greatness author, also jumped into the fold, declaring, “Recordings from 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022,” referring to the publication that Trump was suspicious of in the past. “At least you’re consistent!”
“One of the most obvious goals of Pelosi’s J6 committee was to revitalize the NeverTrump movement, demoralize Republican voters and criminalize any opposition to regime policies.” wrote Mollie Hemingway, a Fox News contributor and editor-in-chief of The Federalist, is aiming squarely at the tester. “In that regard, Pelosis has been successful, as editorials like this show.”
From there, the right-wing outrage session just kept going.
“Hey DC examiner – why is this opinion still standing?” Talk radio host Joe Pagliarulo raged on Twitter. “Your testimony was immediately refuted by the Secret Service. Did not you hear?”
“Seriously,” he added“enough of hatred of actually conservative values”.
“It’s more than embarrassing” The audience said DC Editor Amber Athey. Another conservative writer answered by calling tester “controlled opposition”.
Of course that wasn’t the end of it.
Fox News contributor Leo Terrell, whose opinion is based on posing as a former Liberal, wept against the publication, which his Fox colleagues, including star anchor Sean Hannity, frequently quote on the show.
“Attention Trump supporters. Don’t waste your time reading the RINO-sponsored Washington Examiner!” he tweeted.
He continued in a second tweet: “Attention Washington Examiner, your editorial page on President Trump is embarrassing. You now owe President Trump an apology. Do your homework before writing an unfounded editorial!”
And, of course, no far-right outrage fest would be complete without Seb Gorka stepping in Add: “How long have I been telling you that The Washington Examiner is funded and cast by NeverTrumpers?”
