Trump issues challenge to ‘MORONS’: ‘I hereby challenge Rupert Murdoch & Sons, Biden, WSJ heads…’


Former President Donald Trump went on a tear Sunday over the “MORONS!!!” at The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and issued a challenge to them and others after a particular poll cast him in a similar light to President Joe Biden.

“Where did that come from?”

Concerns over the age of American civil servants have only increased as fixtures of Washington, D.C. like Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), and President Biden have repeatedly had episodes seemingly related to mental and physical health deficiencies.

The current frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination took umbrage that his name was even brought into a discussion of “age and mentality” after a Journal poll conducted at the end of August had wondered at age as a factor for voters in their 2024 decision-making.

“In a phony and probably rigged Wall Street Journal poll, coming out of nowhere to softened [sic] the mental incompetence blow that is so obvious with Crooked Joe Biden, they ask about my age and mentality. Where did that come from?” asked Trump on Truth Social.


“A few years ago I was the only one to agree to a mental acuity test, & ACED IT. Now that the Globalists at Fox & the WSJ have failed to push their 3rd tier candidate to success, they do this,” he continued. “Well, I hereby challenge Rupert Murdoch & Sons, Biden, WSJ heads, to acuity tests!”


Later that hour, the president added to his venting and even included a jab at Fox News for settling the defamation lawsuit brought by Dominion Voting Systems over coverage of election integrity concerns in the 2020 presidential election.

“I will name the place and the test, and it will be a tough one. Nobody will come even close to me! We can also throw some physical activity into it,” he riffed. “I just won the Senior Club Championship at a big golf club, with many very good players. To do so you need strength, accuracy, touch and, above all, mental toughness. Ask Bret Baier (Fox), a very good golfer. The Wall Street Journal & Fox are damaged goods after their failed DeSanctimonious push & stupid $780,000,000 ‘settlement.’ MORONS!!!”

“The Globalist Wall Street Journal has lost most of its influence over the last few years. They are America Last, and rapidly going down the tubes,” the onetime commander-in-chief argued. “The Editorial Board doesn’t have a clue. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

As previously reported, the poll from the Journal had questioned 1,500 registered voters, of which 73 percent agreed that 80-year-old Biden’s age was a detriment to his ability to perform the duties required. Furthermore, two-thirds of Democrat respondents aligned with that position.

That same poll, which showed the two candidates even at 46 – 46 if the election were held presently, held that less than half of all respondents felt that way about 77-year-old Trump.

In fact, reacting to the poll, a panel on ABC News’s “This Week” had lamented the positive outlook it presented for the Republican candidate as host George Stephanopoulos had said “It is kind of shocking in a way that despite all of the baggage that Donald Trump carries, he’s tied with Joe Biden right now.”

“With every passing month, with every new indictment, Donald Trump seems to be consolidating his control over the Republican Party,” he added after former Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile said, “When I looked at that recent poll…I said, ‘This could keep me up at night.’”

Despite blasting Fox News, Trump went on to promote syndicated radio host Mark Levin’s program on the network Sunday night and went on to share a number of clips from the broadcast after he had continued to rail hours later.

“The Wall Street Journal and FoxNews keep pushing the narrative, through Trey Gowdy and others, that ‘BOTH’ Crooked Joe Biden and 45th President Donald J. Trump are unpopular within their own Party,” the former president posted to Truth Social. “This happens to be true for Crooked Joe, where they won’t even let RFK Jr. have his votes fairly counted (more RIGGING, and STEALING Elections!), but VERY untrue for ‘TRUMP,’ where I have a 90% Approval Rating, and am crushing the ‘second tier’ candidates by 50, 60, and even 70 Points. THAT”S POPULAR!”
