America’s Biggest Loser is once again demonstrating just how adept he is at failing. Donald Trump has a record of business catastrophes that is unparalleled in modern times. His numerous, and narcissistically self-branded projects – from airlines to games to steaks to vodka – all ended as humiliating fiascos. Even his prized real estate ventures have proven to be duds.
Now Trump’s latest scam – the hysterically named TRUTH Social – is joining the club. Devin Nunes, the former congressman and fake farmer who Trump tapped to be the company’s CEO, promised two weeks ago that the Twitter clone’s website would be fully open for business by the end of March. Well, here we are, but there appears to be little evidence of life on Trump’s pouty platform.
TRUTH(less) (Anti)Social has been unable to accommodate new users trying to sign up. A few hundred thousand of the Trump faithful are languishing on a stalled waiting list. Those who have gained access have found an echo chamber of fellow cultists whose homogeneous agreement is terminally boring. Trump doesn’t even use the site. He posted one comment a month ago and hasn’t been heard from since. What’s more, by all indications the app is not setting the social media world aflame. The Wrap reports that…
“Former president Donald Trump’s Truth Social app is seeing a 93% drop in signups and similarly steep decline in traffic after a rocky rollout last month fraught with technical issues and an extensive waiting list for new signups to actually use the service.”
None of this is going down well at Mar-a-Lago. Trump is said to be furious that his attempt to beat Twitter at their game has cratered so badly. The Daily Beast reports that…
“In recent weeks, sources have heard the former president on the phone swearing gratuitously and asking things like, ‘What the f*ck is going on’ with Truth Social. He’s repeatedly groused about the negative press and the less-than-stellar optics of the rollout, these sources said. And he’s demanded to know why more people aren’t using it—why the app isn’t swiftly dominating the competition.”
Trump has done more than demand to know why his baby is such a disaster. He has also been issuing impotent orders in utter desperation. He recently begged his glassy-eyed disciples to abandon Twitter and called for it to be outlawed, saying that…
“They shouldn’t be allowed to do business in this Country […] Everybody should drop off of Twitter and Facebook. They’re boring, have only a Radical Left point of view, and are hated by everyone. They are a disgrace to our Nation.”
Who would have thought that a former reality TV game show host could have bombed so spectacularly in both business and politics? Trump has the unique distinction of having lost the popular vote twice, being impeached twice, and never having an approval rating that hit 50%. And it only got worse from there.
Following his occupation of the White House, Trump incited a deadly insurrection and spent the next fifteen months whining about alleged election fraud for which he he could provide no evidence. And now he is tightening his treasonous embrace of Vladimir Putin. It makes one wonder how any rational person would consider investing in him as a businessman or a politician.
It’s safe to assume that Trump’s tribulations will continue for the foreseeable future. He has proven the newly coined adage represented by the acronym ETTD: Everything Trump Touches Dies. But at least he succeeded in getting Devin Nunes out of Congress and ridding Twitter of some its most annoying trolls.
