Rupert Murdoch's New York Post Trolls 'Florida Man' Trump With Page 26 Burn

The previously pro-Trump newspaper buried its coverage of the former president's 2024 announcement and peppered its story with digs.

The Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post relegated Donald Trump’s 2024 campaign announcement to the bottom of its front page on Wednesday.

Adding further insult to the former president, the previously pro-Trump tabloid didn’t even mention his name on the cover.

Instead, it wrote: “Florida Man Makes Announcement.”

The coverage buried deep inside the newspaper was not much better for Trump.

The story on page 26 was peppered with digs at the former president, calling his Mar-a-Lago estate “his resort and classified-documents library” and saying he was “famous for gold-plated lobbies and for firing people on reality television.”

The Post and Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal appear to have taken an anti-Trump stance since the GOP’s poor showing in the 2022 midterm elections, which many conservatives have blamed on the former president.

Murdoch has reportedly said he is ready to move on from Trump and sees Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as the future of the Republican Party.
