Donald Trump is clearly scared of Lachlan Murdoch. And he’s afraid to say much about the news that Rupert Murdoch is stepping down from running Fox News and News Corp lest he roil one of the family members.
For the usually unbridled, edited voluble Trump this near silence is deafening. All he said about it on social media was: “Many people are saying that,”You forced Rupert Murdoch into retirement!” I do not believe this is so…”
The real Donald Trump would have reached back to various slights Murdoch had exacted on him, and what he thought of his son taking over — maybe akin to Trump and his two dolts of sons running Trump Organization.
We don’t get to see Trump walking a tightrope, or being tight lipped so this working sticking a pin in it for future reference.
