Well, Donald Trump just threw his hat back in the ring for 2024, with the former president deciding he wants to be in the Oval Office again and try to save America from those that he and many others see as wrecking it in his absence.
Many conservatives were excited, cheering Trump for having the internal fortitude and mental strength to stare down his enemies once again.
The leftists, however, are clutching their pearls and freaking out, as could be expected. Rather than cheer Trump, they’re losing it over the idea that Trump could be president again.
NPR, for instance, posted about the Trump announcement on Twitter, saying:
BREAKING: Donald Trump, who tried to overthrow the results of the 2020 presidential election and inspired a deadly riot at the Capitol in a desperate attempt to keep himself in power, has filed to run for president again in 2024.
The NPR article was just as biased. It said, for example:
“And yet, Trump is launching another run for president and falsely claiming his candidates did well, despite the evidence that his brand and his style of politics have proven radioactive in competitive states and districts for multiple election cycles in a row now.”
And also said:
“Courts have proven the 2020 election was fair and that there was very little fraud, certainly not enough to overturn the results anywhere.
“Despite that, Trump made his false narrative of a stolen election something of a litmus test for those he would endorse in these midterms. They bought in, were boosted in primaries and many lost in the general election, giving seats to Democrats that might have been won by non-election-denying Republicans.”
So NPR wasn’t happy Trump is running.
Nor was the Washington Post. It ran an even more pearl-clutchy article than NPR, one absurdly titled “Trump, who as president fomented an insurrection, says he is running again”
and posted it on Twitter, saying:
The twice-impeached former president Donald Trump, 76, who refused to concede in the 2020 election and is the subject of multiple criminal investigations, is running again in 2024, increasing the likelihood of a potential rematch with President Biden.
The Washington Post article was just as ridiculous as you’d expect. It began by saying:
Donald Trump, the twice-impeached former president who refused to concede defeat and inspired a failed attempt to overturn the 2020 election culminating in a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol, officially declared on Tuesday night that he is running to retake the White House in 2024.
Then there was CNN, the former president’s old nemesis. Appearing on it, Alyssa Farah Griffin said:
“This is a man who after losing the election tried to overthrow the government, tried to disenfranchise 80 million voters and then incited an insurrection at the capitol.”
CNN also “fact-checked” Trump’s 2024 announcement, so it looks like the feud between the two is back and just as bitter as ever.

“This will not be my campaign. This will be our campaign altogether.”
“Together we will be taking on the most corrupt forces and entrenched interests imaginable. Our country is in a horrible state.”
“We’re in grave trouble. This is not a task for a politician or a conventional candidate is a task for a great movement that embodies the courage confidence and the spirit of the American. This is a movement this is not for any one individual. This is a job for 10s of millions of proud people working together from all across the land and from all walks of life young and old, black and white, Hispanic and Asian, many of whom were brought together for the very, very first time.”
“Because the only force strong enough to defeat the massive corruption we are up against is you, the American people. It’s true. The American people, the greatest people on Earth, we love them all. And we love both sides. We’re going to bring people together.”
