The New York Post editorial board says Donald Trump’s three-hour silence during the violent riots at the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021 makes him “unworthy” of being president again.

As his followers stormed the Capitol, calling on his vice president to be hanged, President Donald Trump sat in his private dining room, watching TV, doing nothing.

For three hours, seven minutes.

To his eternal shame, as appalled aides implored him to publicly call on his followers to go home, he instead further fanned the flames by tweeting: “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution.”

His only focus was to find any means — damn the consequences — to block the peaceful transfer of power.

It’s up to the Justice Department to decide if this is a crime. But as a matter of principle, as a matter of character, Trump has proven himself unworthy to be this country’s chief executive again.

In June, the New York Post ran a similar editorial declaring “Trump can’t look past 2020. Let him remain there.”

It’s worth noting that the New York Post, like Fox News, is owned by Rupert Murdoch.
