NYT’s Haberman Reports “Furious” Trump Is Blaming His Wife Melania For His Decision To Endorse One Of His Poorest Candidates

He's really not handling this well. At all.

Despite Trump’s delusional claims that he’s just fine, mentally, following the Red Bust we’ve seen out of the midterms election last night and through today, multiple reports have indicated that the scandal-ridden former president just is not handling things well behind closed doors.

Earlier today, we reported on coverage from CNN’s Jim Acosta, who cited inside sources saying the ex-president has been “screaming at everyone” as his endorsements’ humiliating losses rolled in.

Now, none other than the “Trump Whisperer” herself, New York Times’ Maggie Haberman has weighed in on the matter on Twitter with her own bombshell and rather humiliating revelations from some of the people who are closest to Donald Trump these days, who say that the disgraced former guy is so up in a tizzy over his candidates’ poor performances in the election that he’s begun to blame his own wife Melania for some of his worst hand-picked candidates.

“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,” Haberman reports on Twitter.

Haberman goes on to note in a follow-up tweet that some of Trump’s most notable losses in this midterm election, such as Dr. Oz and Don Bolduc, may put a real damper on his previous plans to officially announce his 2024 presidential candidacy next week, hot on the heels of what he thought was going to be a Red windfall.

“There are people pushing Trump to reschedule his announcement next week, and several Rs have texted asking whether he will, but it’s risky and would be acknowledging he’s wounded by yesterday, something that some of his advisers insist is not the case,” Maggie’s tweet reads.

Trump has been teasing heavily at that announcement all week, and even went so far as to issue a not-so-thinly veiled warning to Ron DeSantis, who is widely thought to be his biggest GOP presidential competition, recently saying, ” I really believe he could hurt himself badly. I think he would be making a mistake, I think the base would not like it — I don’t think it would be good for the party.”

Frankly, I don’t see how he could blame Melania when it honestly seems like she doesn’t even talk to him much these days. But okay, buddy.
