Trump’s TRUTH Social Twitter Ripoff Suffers Another Setback Due to His Criminal Corruption

When Twitter permanently suspended Donald Trump two days after the January 6th insurrection that he incited, they said that it was “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” There was a collective sigh of relief in America in anticipation that his maniacal raving might be muffled for a while. Unfortunately, that was not to be.

Donald Trump Sweating

Soon after Trump was given the boot by Twitter, he launched his own social media operation, Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG). The core of this scam was TRUTH Social, a blatant ripoff of Twitter built on rage and revenge. He promised that it would be a bastion of free speech, despite the fact that its terms of service explicitly forbid posts that criticized Trump and users were banned for posting the truth about January 6th.

Right from the start this racket rocketed to failure in record time. Digital World Acquisition Corporation (DWAC), the shell company that was expected to take the new business public, has declined in value by 80% from its high mark last October.

DWAC has suffered a series of the financial and legal setbacks that are so common to any Trump enterprise. And now there is another adversity owing to Trump’s inbred immorality:

“Digital World Acquisition Corp., the special purpose acquisition company planning to merge with the company behind former President Donald Trump’s Truth Social platform, is asking its shareholders to delay the deadline for completing the deal until 2023, in part because of federal investigations into the transaction. […] DWAC warned that may not even be enough time, though, noting the investigations might hamper its ability to win regulatory approval, which it said ‘may require us to liquidate.'”

The “federal investigations” to which this notice refers includes a Grand Jury in New York, for which all of DWAC’s board members have been subpoenaed. At the same time the Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating whether TMTG and DWAC executives improperly coordinated with each other and engaged in insider trading.

These probes have contributed to the cratering of the value of Trump’s crime vehicle, DWAC. It may also explain why Trump himself bailed on his crooked company. Just weeks before the subpoenas were served, Trump removed himself and Don Jr from the board of TMTG.

Even worse, from Trump’s perspective, is that if this deal doesn’t go through he won’t be able to pocket the billions of dollars that have been raised by his criminal cronies to finance this flagrant fraud. Bearing in mind that the only purpose of this sham venture was to either exact vengeance on Trump’s enemies, or enrich him personally, he appears to have failed on both counts. And it will just add to the list of criminal offences that Trump and his crime family could be held liable for.

Trump’s Twitter Ripoff (TRUTH Social) Has Lost 36% of its Value Since He Began Posting On It

The myth of Donald Trump’s popularity is rapidly unwinding. Sure, he may still hold a few braindead cult disciples in a hypnotic trance, and he continues to recruit more violent insurrectionists with unethical and unfulfillable promises of future pardons, but the rest of the nation is increasingly anxious to be rid of him.

Recent polling shows that voters are more likely to support Democrats when they are told that the alternative is Republicans who are beholden to Trump and his Ultra-MAGA agenda. And the hearings being held by the House Select Committee investigating the deadly January 6th insurrection incited by Trump are turning public opinion against him. Those hearings are only at the half way point, with many more witnesses and incriminating revelations to come. Meanwhile, nearly 6 in 10 Americans say that Trump should charged criminally for his role in the Capitol Hill riots.

RELATED: The January 6th Hearings are Driving Public Opinion – And Trump’s Latest Delusional Meltdown

In the midst of his crumbling congregation of crackpots, Trump is frantically posting on his Twitter clone, TRUTH Social, to try to shore up support and garner some of the infatuation that his fetid ego feeds on. Unfortunately for Trump, that miserably failing social mess isn’t going to provide the blind idolatry that he craves. It has failed to attract much of an audience, and the financial foundations underpinning its operation are rotting to the core.

TRUTH Social was announced in October of 2021, and Trump posted on it one time, then disappeared for months. More recently he declared that he would never return to Twitter, even if Elon Musk’s bid to acquire it were successful (which is doubtful).

At the beginning of June Trump finally began to patronize his website and the lonely Deplorables who reside there. His postings were typically festering with rage and riddled with lies. But his presence seems to have had an adverse affect on the site’s fortunes, or lack thereof. Since Trump began posting regularly, the shell company, Digital World Acquisition Corporation (DWAC), that was expected to take the business public, has declined in value by 36%. That’s just in the two weeks that Trump has been posting.

Apparently Trump’s dimwit-icisms didn’t do much to boost interest in this debacle. Not that it was especially prosperous before. It has declined by more than 80% since its high mark last October. And the reasons are pretty obvious. For one thing, the company is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission for possible fraud.

What’s more, with Trump posting his tedious whines about having lost the 2020 presidential election, and his infantile insults directed at anyone who is less than worshipful, how could anyone stay interested for long? For instance, his last posting exemplifies the problem…

“I have sooo many witnesses to everything good, but the highly partisan and one sided Unselect Committee of political hacks has not (sic) interest in hearing or seeing them. This Witch Hunt could all be ended quickly if they did!”

For the record, the Committee is not only interested in hearing from Trump’s witnesses, they subpoenaed many of them. Most refused to comply. They include his White House and campaign staffers Peter Navarro, Dan Scavino, Mark Meadows, Stephen Bannon, and Rudy Giuliani. Also Trump supporters in Congress Kevin McCarthy, Andy Biggs, Jim Jordan, Scott Perry, Ronny Jackson, and Mo Brooks. Of the Trump insiders who did show (Bill Barr, Bill Stepien, Greg Jacob, and Michael Luttig), they offered testimony that mainly contributed to the abundant evidence of Trump’s guilt.

RELATED: Crybaby Trump Slams the January 6th Committee For Nixing His Witnesses – Who Refused to Testify

If Trump really wants the Committee to hear his side of the story, he could direct his supporters to stop obstructing and agree to testify. He won’t. Better yet, he could volunteer to testify himself. The Committee would welcome him and give him as much time as he wants. But that would require him to have the courage to show up and tell the truth – two personality traits that he has never had.

However, Trump can be expected to keep whining to his followers online, because that’s a trait that he acknowledged is one of his best when he bragged that “I am the most fabulous whiner.”

Trump Could Make TRUTH Social Pay Him for Content, Even If it’s Dishonest, Illegal, or Immoral

The more we learn about Donald Trump’s Twitter clone, TRUTH Social, the more it appears to be just another in a long line of scams by Trump whose only purpose is to fatten his wallet and fleece his half-witted flock. The Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), his social media venture, is heading down the same corrupt path as his phony university and his fraudulent charity.

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

Mother Jones is reporting on a recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission by Digital World Acquisition Corp (DWAC), the shady shell company that Trump is using to give his enterprise a presence on Wall Street. And, as revealed in the filing, the terms of the licensing agreement with Trump have all of the elements of the unscrupulous brand of business affairs that are the hallmarks of Trump’s malpractice. To begin with, the filling notes that…

“TMTG’s future success will depend, to a significant extent, upon the continued presence and popularity of President Trump. If President Trump were to discontinue his relationship with TMTG due to death, disability, or any other reason, or limit his involvement with TMTG due to becoming a candidate for political office, TMTG would be significantly disadvantaged.”

Relying on Trump’s popularity is a profoundly shaky foundation for success. The twice-impeached, former reality TV game show host lost the popular vote twice and never had an approval rating that approached 50%. A majority of Americans say he’s responsible for the violent January 6th insurrection. And even 49% of Republicans don’t want him to run in 2024.

RELATED: Trump’s Cult of Republican Voters is Dwindling, but GOP Politicians and Press Remain Spellbound

What’s the more, the prospects of Trump discontinuing his relationship with his site for the reasons stated (“death, disability, or any other reason”) are almost inevitable. And in any case, Trump isn’t even obligated to post anything at all on the site. However, the filing notes that the site may be obligated to pay him for posting content. So he has wrangled another way to squeeze dough from his dimwit disciples. And the substance of the content he provides has no ethical boundaries. According the the filing…

“TMTG has entered into a license agreement with President Trump wherein neither the personal nor political conduct of President Trump, even if such conduct could negatively reflect on TMTG’s reputation or brand or be considered offensive, dishonest, illegal, immoral, or unethical, or otherwise harmful to TMTG’s brand or reputation, shall be considered a breach of the license agreement.”

That’s a necessary contractual provision with Trump, since he is notorious for “offensive, dishonest, illegal, [and] immoral” conduct. Even now the SEC is investigating whether TMTG and DWAC executives improperly coordinated with each other and engaged in insider trading. They have also partnered with a Chinese firm with a dubious legal past. And the filing even mentions Trump’s prior business failures including…

“…the bankruptcies of Trump Taj Mahal, Trump Plaza, and Trump Castle, and the failures of Trump University, Trump Vodka, and Trump Steaks, among others. […] Digital World said in its filing: A number of companies that were associated with President Trump have filed for bankruptcy. There can be no assurances that TMTG will not also become bankrupt.”

There is considerable speculation on Wall Street that Trump’s social media sham won’t ever get off the ground. DWAC stock price is down about 65% from its recent high just a couple of months ago. And while Trump has said that he won’t go back on Twitter even if Elon Musk’s bid is successful (doubtful) and his account is reinstated, he lies too much for that – or anything else he says – to be taken seriously.

RELATED: Elon Musk’s Bid for Twitter is in Big Trouble, and So is Trump’s TRUTH Social

Meanwhile, Trump’s Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, has announced that “I will soon no longer be posting on Twitter. This is a terrible website that is beyond fixing.” She doesn’t say how soon “soon” is (and she is just as likely to be lying as Trump), but the reaction in the replies to her alleged farewell announcement are enthusiastically supportive and downright gleeful:

Elon Musk’s Bid for Twitter is in Big Trouble, and So is Trump’s TRUTH Social

It was only one month ago that Elon Musk announced that he intended to acquire Twitter and take the company private. It was an audacious move that, from the start, didn’t make much sense financially. However, it did affirm the enormity of Musk’s ego and his desire to make influential social media companies his plaything.

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

Musk made his intention to buy Twitter public after he had already purchased 73 millions shares of the company, a 9.2% stake. He is currently being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission for having failed to file the required disclosures of that stock purchase. But that’s only the tip of his troubles.

On Friday morning Musk tweeted that he is putting the “Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users.””

Due to the characteristically cryptic nature of that comment, and the trading chaos it could provoke, Musk later tried to clarify himself, tweeting that he is “Still committed to the acquisition.” However, his pausing the acquisition bid, as well as his stated reasoning for doing it, are both profoundly specious.

First of all, Musk’s claim that he’s hesitating as a result of a report that fewer than 5% of Twitter’s accounts are spam or fake is difficult to take seriously. The scale of potential fake accounts on Twitter is not news. In fact, Twitter has reported it in its quarterly and annual reports to the SEC for at least two years. So either Musk entered into this $44 billion deal without doing the most basic research and due diligence, or he’s lying.

Much of Musk’s financing for Twitter is backed by his stock in Tesla. So if Musk didn’t previously know that there are fake accounts on Twitter, he was neglectfully putting the value of Tesla at risk and would be liable to shareholders for losses. If he did know, then he is likely trying to back out of the deal without having to pay the $1 billion break up fee.

Why would Musk want to back out now, so soon after initiating this deal? It might have something to do with the reaction on Wall Street to his plans. Musk’s offer for Twitter was $54.00 per share. On April 14, when he announced his intentions, Twitter was trading at about $45.00 per share. Since then it has dropped to about $41.00, or about 12%. And it’s down more than 40% from its recent high eight months ago. The fact that the market isn’t willing to pay the offer price of $54.00 is a pretty good indicator that they don’t think the deal will ever go through.

What’s more, the price of Tesla has also declined precipitously. It was trading at about $985.00 when Musk revealed his interest in Twitter in April. It’s down to about $780 now, a drop of about 20%. And it’s down more than 42% from its recent high three months ago. Since Musk is using his Tesla stock to finance the Twitter acquisition, and Tesla’s stock has dropped substantially, the Twitter purchase price becomes much greater for Musk. Which is further evidence that he may be trying to ditch the deal.

So how would all of this affect Donald Trump’s Twitter clone, TRUTH Social? Theoretically, any weakness in its biggest competitor should be a positive for the TRUTH(less) app. However, the shady shell company that is serving as Trump’s vehicle for the enterprise, Digital World Acquisition Corp (DWAC) has been trading down ever since Musk’s Twitter bid became public. On April 14, it was at about $50.00 per share. Now it’s at about $40.00, a 20% drop. And from its recent high of around $100.00 just a couple of months ago, it’s down a whopping 60%.

RELATED: Judge Dismisses Trump’s Loopy Lawsuit Against Twitter for ‘Failure to Plausibly State a Claim’

Apparently Wall Street doesn’t have any more confidence in another Trump boondoggle, than they do in Musk’s deal. And it appears to be irrelevant that Musk promised to restore Trump’s Twitter account when – make that if – he takes over. Trump has already said that he would not return to Twitter, even if his account were reinstated.

SEE Trump Declares that ‘I Am Not Going Back On Twitter’ After the Elon Musk Takeover

That, of course, is probably another Trump lie. There is no way that he would be satisfied with a few thousand followers on TRUTH Social if he could regain his 84 million followers on Twitter. But he can’t say that now or it would appear that he favors the competition. So the grift goes on – for both Trump and Musk.

UPDATE: Trump has weighed in saying that…

“There is no way Elon Musk is going to buy Twitter at such a ridiculous price, especially since realizing it is a company largely based on BOTS or Spam Accounts. Fake anyone? By the time you get rid of them, if that can even be done, what do you have? Not much? If it weren’t for the ridiculous Billion Dollar breakup fee, Elon would have already been long gone. Just my opinion, but Truth Social is MUCH better than Twitter and is absolutely exploding, incredible engagement.”

Trump used to brag about his gazillions of Twitter followers. Now he is asserting that they are “largely based on BOTS or Spam Accounts.” He’s also dramatically exaggerating the reported 5% as “largely”. But then he’s never been very good – or honest – with numbers (see his crowd size estimates and property values). And TRUTH social is already crawling with fake accounts. The site even “verified” a fake Fox News account.

Investors (aka Suckers) in Trump’s TRUTH Social Scam Lost 37% in Just the Past Two Weeks

The track record for business ventures run by Donald Trump is abysmal in the extreme. He bankrupted four casinos. He was ordered to pay $25 million in restitution to victims of his Trump University con. His fraudulent “charity” was shuttered by authorities in New York. And his numerous self-branded projects – from airlines to games to steaks to vodka – all went bust in a hurry. Even his real estate properties are losers.

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

So is anyone really surprised that Trump’s latest boondoggle is sinking like a stone? The hysterically named “TRUTH Social” was announced months ago, but it’s official launch has been repeatedly delayed. Now its CEO, former Republican congressman and fake farmer Devin Nunes, says it is in the midst of a “soft” launch and will be fully open for business by the end of March.

Apparently that news didn’t thrill the investors who have dared to put their money where Trump’s mouth is. Two weeks ago DWAC, the stock that is serving as a holding vehicle for “TRUTH Social”, was sitting at $100.00 per share. Today it just hit $63.00. That’s a decline of 37% in just two weeks. It’s down even more from the high of $175.00 that it hit shortly after the launch announcement.

Most of the recent news about “TRUTH Social” has been bad. It has been unable to accommodate new users trying to sign up. There is a waiting list of a few hundred thousand who still can’t log in. Those who have gained access are not raving about what they’ve found. It’s a boring echo chamber of Trumpistas who do nothing but affirm each others fantasies. Trump doesn’t even use the site. He posted one comment three weeks ago and nothing since. Politico reports that…

“Trump and his immediate circle have shown little public interest in “TRUTH Social”. Trump’s inactivity has been a source of frustration among some allies pushing the app. Former first lady Melania Trump is on the app but also announced in February that she will be making another platform, Parler, her ‘social media home.’ There are no verified accounts on “TRUTH Social” for the former president’s adult children Donald Jr., Eric, Ivanka or Tiffany, although there are unverified accounts purporting to be them.”

There are also no verified accounts for Trump loyalists Steve Bannon, Rudy Giuliani, Glenn Beck, or Tucker Carlson. All of which begs the question: Why would anyone use “TRUTH Social” rather than Twitter, or one of the many existing conservative competitors (GAB, Parlar, Gettr, and the MyPillow guy’s FrankSpeech), that are also struggling to survive?

Perhaps Trump is depending on his “personality” to lift “TRUTH Social” above the pack. More likely he is relying on his old game plan of suing his competition, or trying to outlaw them, or if that doesn’t work, just politely ask everybody to ditch them. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Good luck with that, Donnie.

UPDATE April 21, 2022: DWAC is now down 67%, and it’s future viability is in doubt.

Trump’s TRUTH Social Twitter Ripoff Follows in the Footsteps of His Prior Failures

If there is one thing that is consistent about Donald Trump, it’s his unchallenged status as America’s biggest loser. He has seemingly boundless ability to screw up everything he touches. The former reality TV game show host, who was evicted from the White House after a single disastrous term, also has a resume of humiliating failure that is unmatched. It includes his four bankrupt casinos, his fraudulent university, his steaks, his vodka, his airline, his D.C. hotel, his scam charitable foundation that was shut down because it was stealing funds, and so much more.

Donald Trump Pacifier Fox

Trump also bears the dishonor of being the first president in history to be impeached twice. He is the first president in decades to leave office with fewer people employed than when he started. He exploded the national debt by cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy. He incited deadly riots in Washington, D.C. by insurrectionist mobs. And he is directly responsible for the deaths of nearly a million Americans due to his incompetent mishandling of the COVID pandemic.

Now Trump has proudly launched what he delusionally believes will supplant Twitter in the social media space. But his ironically named “TRUTH” Social (named after Russia’s news outlet Pravda, which means truth?) got off to an ignominious beginning. As reported by the Daily Beast

“Would-be users of Trump’s new app merely struggled to create an account after Sunday night’s launch. Around 11 p.m. ET, select users who tried to create accounts were repeatedly met with a red error warning: ‘Something went wrong. Please try again.'” […]

“On Sunday, Devin Nunes, the former Republican congressman-turned-CEO of Trump Media & Technology Group, said that he hopes the new app will be fully operational by the end of March.”

This inauspicious introduction was met with appropriate mockery. Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu tweeted that “Many people say that if #TruthSocial can’t even handle opening new accounts, how will it keep your account from being hacked? Also, the problems won’t be fixed until late March. So is their staff like 2 people, the failed Devin Nunes and his cousin’s friend who is the coder?”

From the other side of the aisle Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger also tweeted that “Social media sadly thrives on conflict. #truthsocial (which is ironically named) will be boring and fail, because it will be all Trump-fed drones. BUT, please don’t come back to real social media if you left for Trump and Nunes great idea. You get your one shot.”

These are all good points. What’s more, it bears noting that TRUTH Social’s user base has a ways to go before it can considered competitive with Twitter’s 200,000,000 users. At present there is a significant difference in the potential for interactions between the two platforms. For instance, Trump had more than 88,000,000 followers on Twitter. He has 175 followers on TRUTH Social. Country singer Travis Tritt has 286,000 followers on Twitter. He has 40 followers on TRUTH Social. GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn has 364,000 followers on Twitter. He has 0 followers on TRUTH Social. With stats like that Trump’s cult disciples are surely going to rush to delete their Twitter accounts and live exclusively on TRUTH Social. Right?

It’s easy to see why Trump is so anxious to make this move. He has been banned on Twitter. And he has lost about 98% of his likes and retweets that are now posted by his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington. But he is unlikely to restore his former online glory. For one thing, his Twitter clone (built on open source software for which he is violating the license of the original developers) will be competing with other conservative social media sites (Gab, Parlar, Gettr, and the MyPillow guy’s FRANKSpeech) that beat him to the market (and are failing anyway).

It is also notable that Trump is hailing his venture as a haven for free speech. Which is hysterical given that the terms of service explicitly prohibit any criticism of the site or its operators. Which means that there can be no criticism of its Chairman, Donald Trump.

However, Trump has a business plan that he’s convinced will rocket him to the top of the conservative garbage heap. He’ll just sue his competition, or try to outlaw them, and if that doesn’t work just ask everybody to ditch them:

“Twitter is a disgrace to democracy. They shouldn’t be allowed to do business in this Country. […] Everybody should drop off of Twitter and Facebook.”

That should do it. Now there will probably be hordes of Trump Deplorables signing up for TRUTH Social any minute now, just waiting to interact with people who think exactly like they do in a community that is a tiny fraction of what Twitter has. What could be more fun? Let’s hope that they find happiness there and, as Rep. Kinzinger said, “Please, don’t come back.”

Trump Orders His Cult To ‘Drop Off of Twitter’ and Calls For It To Be Outlawed

The brazenly anti-American and anti-democratic compulsions of Donald Trump continue to be exhibited with each new public pronouncement he issues. His aspirations for authoritarianism, and his affinity for brutal dictators, was recently affirmed with his “endorsement” of Hungary’s fascistic Viktor Orbán.

Donald Trump, Twitter

On the heels of that gushing embrace of tyranny, Trump is now giving voice to another of his noxious notions that negates the liberties that define America. In a tweet reacting to Marjorie Taylor Greene’s well deserved suspension from Twitter, Trump lashed out in his typically incoherent and infantile fashion, saying that…

“Twitter is a disgrace to democracy. They shouldn’t be allowed to do business in this Country. Marjorie Taylor Greene has a huge constituency of honest, patriotic, hard-working people. They don’t deserve what’s happened to them on places like low-life Twitter and Facebook. 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. Keep fighting, Marjorie!”

If you had to catalog everything that Trump has said is a “disgrace” it would require a bookshelf that spanned the length of Great Wall of China. Which would be convenient because he’s also a big fan fan of Xi Jinping. Due to his pitifully limited vocabulary, Trump has overused the word so much that is has ceased to have any meaning. And as for “democracy.” we’ve already established that that word has no meaning to Trump.

Moving on, Trump grumps that Twitter “shouldn’t be allowed to do business in this Country.” How he proposes to outlaw it isn’t explained. But it’s something that he regretted not doing when he was still occupying the White House. He is currently suing Twitter and other Internet services because that’s just what you’d expect from the King of Cancel Culture. But he is too mentally feeble to grasp that calling for a ban on the constitutional rights of social media platforms that he doesn’t like contradicts his intended, albeit disingenuous, message of free speech.

Defending Greene and her constituency of like-minded Trump cultists, Trump commands his glassy-eyed disciples to “drop off of Twitter and Facebook.” Because surrendering opportunities to express oneself is Trump’s idea of open discourse. He wants his klan to be free of any contrary opinions that might contain some kernal of truth. More likely, he just wants to harm Twitter and Facebook for not kowtowing to his supreme dictates.

However, as usual Trump is lying about Twitter having “only a Radical Left point of view, and are hated by everyone.” All of the objective studies show that these platforms actually favor conservatives. As reported by the Guardian

“Republicans including Donald Trump have raged against Twitter and Facebook in recent months, alleging anti-conservative bias, censorship and a silencing of free speech. According to a new report from New York University, none of that is true.

“Disinformation expert Paul Barrett and researcher J Grant Sims found that far from suppressing conservatives, social media platforms have, through algorithms, amplified rightwing voices, ‘often affording conservatives greater reach than liberal or nonpartisan content creators’”.

These findings have been confirmed by repeated studies including this one by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, and this one by the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Finally, if Twitter is “hated by everyone,” then everyone has a funny way of showing it. The platform currently has more than 200 million users. That’s far more than anything Trump will ever have on his yet to be launched (and bona fide scam), TRUTH Social. Although if Trump wants to herd his devotees into his own disease-ridden corral, we’re all for it. A study conducted after Trump was banned from Twitter showed that “online misinformation about election fraud plunged 73 percent.” So the departure of Trump and his crackpot crusaders can only make the Internet better.

Trump’s Update on His TRUTH(LESS) Social Scam is an Incoherent, Lie-Riddled Mess

Last week Donald Trump announced what will surely be his next humiliating business failure. Laughably dubbed “TRUTH Social” – a name that defies the reality of his documented history of pathologically lying – Trump’s stab at social media already shows signs of being a scam contrived to enrich himself and feed his gargantuan but fragile ego.

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

On Tuesday morning Trump directed Liz Harrington, his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, to post a tediously rambling elaboration on his proposed social media (cr)app. Not surprisingly, the proclamation was littered with lies and shameless exaltations of himself. It began by asserting that his intentions transcended politics. “This is about saving our country,” Trump prevaricated. He continued saying that…

“America has always been a nation of smart, spirited, and independent people who take pride in thinking for themselves. We admire those who aren’t afraid to speak their minds, or go against the tide. Yet suddenly, we find ourselves being censored and dictated to by a small group of self-righteous scolds and self-appointed arbiters of what everyone else is allowed to think, say, share, and do.”

Oh yes. The undisputed King of Cancel Culture is very concerned about censorship. Trump rails about the alleged banning of doctors, scientists, and journalists (mostly by Trump), in a tirade that leads predictably to himself, whining that “we’ve seen a sitting president of the United States effectively silenced.” We wish! And the last people that Trump cares about are the smart, independent thinkers. As he has told us before, he “loves the poorly educated,” for the ease with which he can fleece the them.

Trump then complains about America having “fallen far down the ‘slippery slope’ of censorship.” This coming from someone who advocates for the censorship of Critical Race Theory, who prohibited the use of the phrase “climate change” by the Department of Energy, who regrets not banning Twitter and Facebook when he was in office, and who “cancels” anyone who is the least bit critical of him.

Trump goes on to unironically ask, “How many Americans no longer trust a word they hear from their leaders?” Maybe that’s because Trump lied so often that it would be easier to count the few number of times he told the truth. Then he asks “How many ordinary citizens have sadly come to resent their neighbors?” Perhaps that’s due to the most divisive public figure in modern times. Trump viciously maligns anyone who isn’t unflinchingly adoring. He insults his foes with vulgar, uninhibited, rancor. He has mainstreamed hate.

Finally, Trump promised that “there will be no shadow-banning, throttling, demonetizing, or messing with algorithms for political manipulation.” In other words, you can lie as much as you want to on Trump’s site without risk of consequences for the very real harm it can cause. For example, Trump’s tweeting about nonexistent election fraud that incited the January 6th insurrection. Or his deadly falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic. Although the site’s agreement states that it can’t be held liable for anything that a user posts. That’s actually a provision of the Communications Decency Act’s Section 230 that Trump has vehemently opposed.

However, there are exceptions to Trump’s promised “free” speech.. And they are explicitly spelled out in the site’s terms of service that state that users cannot “disparage, tarnish, or otherwise harm, in our opinion, us or the Site.” So in order to use the site you must first agree to never criticize Trump. FREEDUMB!

Trump’s ‘TRUTH Social’ is a Pitiful Cry for Attention Because His Twitter Shill Isn’t Getting Any

This week Donald Trump announced a new business failure – er, venture – that he says will eventually produce a social media service to “create a rival to the liberal media consortium and fight back against the ‘Big Tech’ companies of Silicon Valley.” Setting aside the likelihood that he will never deliver on this proposal, it still represents an epic feat of hysterical gaslighting.

Donald Trump Pacifier Fox

Trump has dubbed his ego-fluffing phantom operation “TRUTH social.” A branding exercise that flagrantly ignores his notoriety as America’s foremost pathological liar. It is more likely that it will reside in the Trump graveyard of flops that include four bankrupt casinos, a fraudulent university, a sham charitable foundation, and numerous consumer products that consumers never wanted.

However, there is a reason that Trump is so determined to launch a soapbox app dedicated to his own words of witlessness that are primarily comprised of lies, insults, and undeserved boasts. In the ten months since he was exiled from Twitter for excessive and deliberate lying and – as Twitter stated“the risk of further incitement of violence,” Trump has lost most of his online audience. Not that there was much of an audience to hang on to. Internet experts estimated that up to 70% of the 84 million followers reported by Twitter were either fake, bots, or inactive.

That said, an analysis of the interactions on the most recent week of tweets by Trump’s spokes-shill, Liz Harrington (whose proxy Trump tweeting is violating Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban), show a massive decline from the last week of Trump’s tweets prior to his suspension.

Given that collapse, it isn’t surprising that Trump is looking for another avenue to satisfy his gargantuan, but fragile, ego. Unfortunately for him, he has no chance of replicating the volume of interactions he had on Twitter with whatever he hopes to scrape up on his own lame app. Twitter delivered Trump to an audience of more than 200 million people. He’ll be competing with other fringe rightist sites like Gab, Parlar, Gettr, and the MyPillow guy’s FRANKSpeech. All of which have a tiny fraction of the users that Twitter has. And judging by the pathetic response to his previous attempt to lure his cult followers to his blog, it’s preposterous for him to think that he would do any better.

What’s more, there is little reason to believe that there is much demand for Trump’s ranting and raving. Most of it as of late has been whining about having lost the 2020 presidential election. A third of the Harrington tweets in the past week were about the Arizona “fraudit” by the infamous and utterly disreputable Cyber Ninjas. And he continues to incite violence with inflammatory outbursts like this one, where he defends the traitorous insurrections saying that “The insurrection took place on November 3, Election Day. January 6 was the Protest!.” Most of the rest of Trump’s alt-tweets were personal attacks on everyone from Colin Powell, to Andrew McCabe, to GOP Sen. Bill Cassidy, to Rep. Liz Cheney, and, of course, President Biden.

It is also notable that Trump is hailing his venture as a haven for free speech. Which is hysterical given that the terms of service explicitly prohibit any criticism of the site or its operators. Which means that there can be no criticism of its Chairman, Donald Trump.

That is not exactly a recipe for success. There is already evidence that his racket is just another Trump con that is bound for civil and/or criminal indictments and penalties. Furthermore, Trump has been warned that he is in violation of the licensing agreement for the software his service has expropriated and that he “has 30 days to comply with the terms of the license before its access is terminated.”

So Trump’s social media app that hasn’t even launched yet may be shut down before it ever does. After which he will somehow blame it all on his imaginary cabal of radical leftists. The only problem is, without any online presence, there won’t be anyone listening.

Trump Announces His Next Business Failure, a Social Media Venture Called ‘TRUTH Social’

In early January of 2021, Donald Trump was suspended permanently from Twitter. This took place just two days after the deadly January 6th insurrection in Washington, D.C. The explanation given by Twitter was that “we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” He was subsequently banished from YouTube and Facebook as well.

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

Ever since then Trump has threatened to start his own social media enterprise to compete with the ones that he delusionally complains are run by radical leftists. In fact, he has already tried and failed. But now he is finally delivering – again – on that petulant, whining threat. In a post by his spokes shill, Liz Harrington (whose proxy tweeting for Trump violates Twitter’s rules on circumventing a ban), Trump has announced that “Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) will soon be launching a social network, named ‘TRUTH social'” (see below). The post went on to state that…

“Trump Media & Technology Group’s mission is to create a rival to the liberal media consortium and fight back against the ‘Big Tech’ companies of Silicon Valley, which have used their unilateral power to silence opposing voices in America.”

So the pathological liar, who has been documented telling more than 30,000 lies during his single term in the White House, is calling his new social media venture “Truth”? Trump is also propagator of the “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. That’s a falsehood that incited the violent riots on January 6th and the storming of the Capitol by Trump’s cult followers. And Trump’s grotesque lies about the COVID pandemic led directly to hundreds of thousands of deaths and millions of people suffering. So, of course…TRUTH! Or as it’s known in the original Russian, PRAVDA!

For nearly a year Trump has been dreaming of this sort of ego-fueling platform to whine on uninterrupted. He says that his alt-Twitter will “fight back” against those who are “silenc[ing] opposing voices.” Like Gab, Parlar, Gettr, and the MyPillow guy’s FRANKSpeech, with which he will now be competing? Not to mention Fox News, Newsmax, Sinclair, and OAN. The announcement closed with this paragraph that reads like bad satire:

President Donald J. Trump, the Chairman of TMTG, stated ‘I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon. I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech. We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced. This is unacceptable. I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give a voice to all. I’m excited to soon begin sharing my thoughts on TRUTH Social and to fight back against Big Tech. Everyone asks me why doesn’t someone stand up to Big Tech? Well, we will be soon!

There is already evidence that this is all just another Trump con game. Nevertheless, Trump spawn, Don Jr, was on Fox News tonight with Sean Hannity to hype his latest grift. He complained that on all the lefty search engines “all you see is the CNN, the MSNBC, yadda, yadda, yadda. The leftist narrative all way down. You can never get to the other side of the story.” Yes, he was saying that on Fox News, the highest rated cable “news” network.

However, the most pressing question about this boondoggle is whether it will it be as “successful” as Trump’s other swindles. For instance, his four bankrupt casinos, his fraudulent university, his steaks, his vodka, his airline, his D.C. hotel, his scam charitable foundation that was shut down because it was stealing funds, and so much more.

And let’s not forget his failed, lie-filled presidency that featured two impeachments, numerous felonious associates, international humiliation, record national debt and unemployment, approval ratings that never reached 50 percent, losing the popular vote by significant margins twice, inciting a violent insurrection, and deliberately mismanaging a pandemic that resulted in more than 700,000 dead Americans. Other than that… We can’t wait.
