Truth Social Traffic Flames Out Just as Trump is Trying to Fire Up His Next Losing Campaign

Two weeks ago Donald Trump announced that he is running for the 2024 Republican nomination for president again. Presumably to score a record three popular vote losses. In an extraordinarily gloomy speech packed with horror stories of the “blood-soaked streets” and “cesspool cities” of America, Trump inspired his cult followers by declaring that he has “no doubt that it’s going to get worse.”

Flaming Trump

Since Trump’s announcement, he has embellished his credentials in ways that can only make sense to a severely twisted mind. First of all, he chose to have dinner with the notorious white supremacist and anti-Semite, Nick Fuentes, at his Mar-a-Lago resort/home. And if that weren’t bad enough, he also publicly confessed to the theft of classified documents, and lying about it to the FBI.

This inauspicious start to Trump’s campaign might have been mitigated by his having his own Internet platform to promote himself and his candidacy. Unfortunately for him, that was not to be. Trump’s floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, received another blow this week with the news that it has suffered a precipitous decline over the past couple of months. According to reports

“Truth Social, the alternative social media platform founded by former President Donald Trump, has seen a consecutive two-month decline in unique visitors, according to a watchdog site that monitors conservative media.”

“TheRighting, which reports on and analyzes trends in the conservative media, found that the number of unique visitors to Truth Social dropped from 4.02 million in August — an all-time high — to 3.38 million in September, and then to 2.85 million in October.”

That’s a nearly 30% decline in only two months. And it comes at the time that Trump needs it the most. While Elon Musk has reinstated Trump’s suspended account on Twitter, Trump insists that he will not be going back to the site. If that’s true (doubtful), he would be forsaking his 80 million Twitter followers for the four million glassy-eyed disciples he has on Truth Social. That’s a pretty bad trade off, and one that hurts both Trump and Musk.

RELATED: Why Elon Musk Restoring Trump’s Twitter Account is Ignorant, Dangerous, and Hypocritical

From the day Truth Social was launched it was mired in the sort of mayhem that can only be produced by incompetence. It repeatedly crashed. Users couldn’t log in. Fake accounts were rampant. It’s being criminally investigated by the SEC and a Grand Jury in New York. And financially, the shell company it partnered with suffered an 75% decline in stock value over the past eight months. Its investors are backing out.

So while Musk is doing his darnedest to destroy Twitter, his competition at Truth Social for the white nationalist and disinformation demographic is simultaneously sinking into an abyss of failure. Which is typical for a Trump business, just as it is for Trump’s political endeavors. The horrendous record for the candidates that he endorsed during the midterm election is evidence of his waning influence. And post-midterm polls show that the American people don’t even want him to run again.

Why Elon Musk Restoring Trump’s Twitter Account is Ignorant, Dangerous, and Hypocritical

Nearly two years ago Twitter suspended Donald Trump’s account due to his reckless and relentless lies about election fraud. Twitter imposed the ban on January 8th, two days after Trump’s deadly insurrection on Capitol Hill, saying that “we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” Now Elon Musk has personally intervened to restore the account.

Donald Trump

Musk has contradicted his prior promise not to restore Trump, or anyone else, until after his “content moderation council” (whatever that is) met. But this reversal is wrong for many reason: 1) It’s pitifully ignorant. 2) It’s predictably dangerous. And 3) It’s flagrantly hypocritical. Let’s drill down into each of these reasons…

IGNORANT:
Musk tweeted that Trump’s account would be restored because “The people have spoken.” He was referring to a poll that he previously posted asking whether the account should be reinstated. The results were pretty close, with “Yes” besting “No” 51.8% to 48.2%. However, it is extraordinarily idiotic to take such a poll seriously. For one thing, Musk knows that the votes could be rampant with bots.

In addition to that, it isn’t a scientifically valid survey with a representative sampling of either Americans or Twitter users. It is merely the opinion of people who happened to come across Musk’s tweet and chose to click on a response. And with only 15 million votes, it isn’t even a representative sample of Musk’s 117 million followers. If Barack Obama (who has 5 times the followers of Musk) posted the same poll, you would have a completely different outcome. So for Musk to revive Trump’s account on the basis of this poll proves that he doesn’t have even the most basic grasp of what it means in reality when “the people have spoken.”

DANGEROUS:
When Twitter suspended Trump’s account, they did so in recognition of the imminent threat that his tweets posed to the country and the American people. He was openly and repeatedly inciting violence and encouraging the hostile tendencies of his cult followers. His toxic rhetoric contributed to the anti-American riots on Capitol Hill on January 6th that resulted in more than 140 law enforcement officers being injured.

Trump’s advocacy of such violence continued on other platforms after he was booted from Twitter. Apparently Musk believes that fomenting violence is acceptable free speech and protected by the Constitution. It isn’t. And given Trump’s predilection for sedition and bigotry, Musk clearly doesn’t care who gets hurt.

HYPOCRITICAL:
Musk pretends that his intention is to bring free speech back to the masses by relaxing the moderation policies of Twitter. However, it’s notable that the only accounts Musk has seen fit to restore are those of well known politicians, celebrities, and others in the elite class. He is demonstrating that his true intent is to pander to wealthy right-wingers, like himself. So while he reinstates only privileged conservatives like Trump (and Kanye West, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Babylon Bee, Jordan Peterson, Andrew Tate, and James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas), the accounts of all the non-aristocrats remain shuttered. That’s hardly a restoration of free speech for the masses.

[Full Disclosure: News Corpse is one of the banned commoners. And another appeal to be reinstated was denied just prior to this article being published]

Adding more soap to this opera, is the fact that Trump has stated repeatedly that he would not return to Twitter even if his account were restored. Earlier this year Trump told Fox News that “I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH.” That’s his shorthand for his own floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social. He reiterated his rejection of Twitter as recently as yesterday in post wherein he linked to Musk’s poll and said “don’t worry, we aren’t going anywhere. Truth Social is special!”

Trump’s animosity toward Twitter is complex and extends way beyond his stated reluctance to rejoin the platform. That’s partly because he has an obligation to promote Truth Social. Although it’s hard to imagine that Trump wouldn’t jump back into the Twitterverse where he had 80 million followers. He has only about four million on Truth Social. His ego would compel him to reconcile, despite having previously raged that “Twitter is a disgrace to democracy. They shouldn’t be allowed to do business in this Country.” And he has sued Twitter, albeit without any legal basis or coherent allegation to support his case. Which is why it was so quickly thrown out of court.

This is the guy that Musk is going out of his way to suck up to. Perhaps it’s because Musk is so badly managing Twitter that he is desperate for the (intensely negative) attention that Trump would produce. Since his acquisition of Twitter a couple of weeks ago, Musk has fired half its staff. Hundreds more have resigned. Advertisers are fleeing in droves. Hate speech has skyrocketed. And the operation is struggling just keep from falling of its own weight.

Meanwhile, Musk has been posting some bizarre and offensive tweets, including one that promoted a callous conspiracy theory about the attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband. So, good work, Elon. You’re doing a great job of proving how superior you upper-crusters are to the rest of us.

Trump’s Delusional, Desperate, and (as Always), Dishonest Response to Musk’s Twitter Takeover

The soap opera that commenced after Elon Musk proposed to buy Twitter in April has finally come to an end. Well, at least the buying part. Complex melodramatic narratives will continue into the future due to the unstable mental state of Musk, as well as the social and political ramifications of his ownership of a virtual town square with international scope.

Donald Trump, Twitter

Leading the parade of emotional defectives is, of course, Donald Trump. His view of Musk taking over Twitter is typically drenched with personal interests that range from his competition with Twitter, via his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, and his massive but fragile ego. Remember, Trump was so hurt by Twitter permanently suspending his account that he sued them. The suit was quickly dismissed because the court found that it had no rational legal basis.

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

On Friday Trump responded to the news that Musk’s acquisition of Twitter was completed. And as expected, it was riddled with his hallmark personality traits: whining, bragging, and lying. He posted on Truth Social that…

“TRUTH SOCIAL has become somewhat of a phenomena. Last week it had bigger numbers than all other platforms, including TikTok, Twitter, Facebook, and the rest. It also looks and works better to my eye. I am very happy that Twitter is now in sane hands, and will no longer be run by Radical Left Lunatics and Maniacs that truly hate our country. Twitter must now work hard to rid itself of all of the bots and fake accounts that have hurt it so badly. It will be much smaller, but better. I LOVE TRUTH!”

Indeed, Truth Social is a phenomenal flop. When Trump asserts that “it had bigger numbers than all other platforms,” he is referring only to the number of downloads from the Apple and Google app stores. It still has a tiny percentage of the users that Twitter and other popular social media sites have. And the only reason its download numbers were high is because it just became available many months after its launch. In fact, it has already dropped below all of the apps Trump mentioned, and isn’t even among the top fifty on either the Google or Apple app stores.

Trump’s comment has the requisite infantile insults that he includes in virtually every public statement he makes. And it’s always the same malarkey about alleged “Radical Left Lunatics and Maniacs that truly hate our country.” You have to wonder whether there are any medications that can correct his tedious repetitions, or if he is already on medications that are causing it.

In addition to Trump’s pathetic post, he also gave a comment to Fox News regarding Musk and Twitter. And it was predictably demented. He told Fox that…

“I don’t think Twitter can be successful without me.” And that…

“Twitter was a failed enterprise. It was only when I got on that it became successful.” And that…

“If I choose to run, I will only use Truth.” (Which he has said before, although this time he’s leaving an out in case he doesn’t run)

The notion that Trump won’t return to Twitter if he is allowed is preposterous. He has about four million followers on Truth Social. He had more than 80 million on Twitter. Do you think he’d pass up that opportunity to languish in the adoration of his cult?

It really is astonishing how deranged Trump is. He really thinks that people miss his tweets. As an example of what the Twitterverse is missing without Trump, he posted 47 times on Truth Social yesterday. The subjects ranged from praise for Brazilian fascist Jair Bolsonaro, to a rancid rant against the judge presiding over his trial in New York. But mostly he posted about how magnificent he thinks he is and how much everybody loves him.

However, Trump didn’t post a single note of concern or sympathy for the attempted murder of Nancy Pelosi’s husband. Perhaps he’s still hurt by Pelosi observing that he “is not man enough” to comply with the subpoena he received from the January 6th Committee investigating the insurrection he incited.

Trump Threatened to ‘Blow Up the Company’ if Truth Social Execs Didn’t Give Their Shares to Melania

Two days after the January 6th insurrection that Donald Trump incited, Twitter permanently suspended his account “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” That eventually led to the creation of the Trump-branded Twitter clone, Truth Social, where he could mouth off interminably and unconstrained by facts or decency.

Ever since, Truth Social has proven to be another pitiful failure in the Trump stable of ego-driven business ventures. That, however, didn’t stop him and his minions from pretending that it was not only a success, but an Earth shattering advance in the evolution of the human race. In reality, it was a fiasco on every level. It lost money, failed to attract users, betrayed its promise of free speech, stiffed its vendors, and is mired in multiple legal quagmires.

Adding to the unfolding apocalypse of Trump’s social media scam and its parent company, Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), is a new report revealing the expanding scope of Trump’s greed and corruption. One of TMTG’s executives, Will Wilkerson, has emerged as a whistleblower with allegations that he and other company principals were pressured by Trump to “give up some of his shares to Trump’s wife, Melania?” According to the Washington Post

“Trump Media, the owner of the fledgling social network Truth Social, had just been boosted by a huge merger agreement and a flood of investment that had made the stake worth millions of dollars. Trump had already been given 90 percent of the company’s shares in exchange for the use of his name and some minor involvement, leaving everyone else to split the rest.

“[Company co-founder Andy] Litinsky tried to brush it off, telling Trump ‘the gift would have meant a huge tax bill he couldn’t pay,’ Wilkerson said in an interview. ‘Trump didn’t care. He said, ‘Do whatever you need to do.'”

The Post goes on to report that “Five months later, Litinsky, who first met Trump in 2004 as a contestant on the TV show “The Apprentice,” was abruptly removed from the company’s board.” Furthermore, Trump embellished his pressure campaign in an email wherein he threatened to “‘blow up the company’ if his demands are not met.” Now Wilkerson has filed a whistleblower complaint with the SEC “alleging that “the company’s bid to raise money … relied on ‘fraudulent misrepresentations … in violation of federal securities laws.'”

The Post’s article details at length the soap opera melodrama that went on at TMTG for months. That includes episodes where company founders were terminated and replaced by Don Trump Jr, and associates of Trump’s hand-picked CEO, former GOP congressman and ultra-right-wing Trump-fluffer, Devin Nunes, who had no experience whatsoever in the technology field.

With the company reportedly in violation of SEC regulations and other laws, and investors backing out, its offices were moved from a prestigious commercial building to a mail box at a UPS store. Shares of the shell company that was formed to take TMTG public, Digital World Acquisition Corp (DWAC) have crashed from a high of $175.00 to less than $18.00.

This is a story that would make a compelling fictional drama. But it’s facts are meticulously researched and well documented. It is also easy to believe considering the history of Trump’s unscrupulous business practices.

Like virtually everything else in Trump World, Truth Social and TMTG appear to be geared toward fattening Trump’s wallet through shady machinations. And like virtually everything else in Trump World, it’s failing miserably, and taking down everyone connected to it. But it’s hard to feel sorry for people who so willingly signed on to a sham operation by a known fraudster like Trump.

Devin Nunes Exalts the Failing Truth Social as ‘The Most Important Creation in Trump’s Career’

Throughout Donald Trump’s career he has embellished his personal and business “achievements” to the point that they bore no resemblance whatsoever to reality. Trump only speaks in hyperbole, claiming that everything he undertakes is the greatest success ever known to mankind. And conversely, any criticism or failure is the worst smear campaign. That’s partly why he was recently indicted for fraud by the Attorney General of New York in a case that documents his crooked business practices.

Donald Trump, Devin Nunes

Among Trump’s most prominent recent business debacles is his Twitter ripoff, Truth Social. From the day it was launched it was mired in the sort of mayhem that can only be produced by incompetence. It repeatedly crashed. Users couldn’t log in. Fake accounts were rampant. And financially the shell company it partnered with suffered an 80% decline in stock value over the past seven months. Its investors are backing out.

So this seemed like a good time for the CEO, Devin Nunes, to appear on a right-wing podcast to tout how absolutely marvelous this scam operation is:

“Can you imagine where we would be had Donald Trump not went out and created Truth Social? We would be in a very, very dark spot. And it is very possible that, maybe, just maybe the most important creation in Donald Trump’s whole career will be the creation of Truth Social. And I don’t say that lightly. As you know, John and Amanda, I believe that to my core. It’s why I left Congress to go and do this.”

Can you imagine? It requires a pretty twisted imagination to perceive the “very, very dark spot” that Nunes is describing. Likewise, the ability to contrive a fantasy that Truth Social is “important” seems more than bit far fetched.

That said, Truth Social very well could be “the most important creation in Donald Trump’s whole career,” considering the vast landscape of failure that that encompasses. Trump has multiple business bankruptcies. His “university” was shut down, and he was ordered to pay $25 million in restitution. His charitable foundation was also shuttered, and he and his family prohibited from operating a charity in New York for five years. Numerous buildings that he had licensed his name to have removed his any remnant of that association.

In light of that record of wreckage, Truth Social might look good. Although, it hasn’t exactly prospered. Here is a brief summation of the website’s troubles…

Trump’s Twitter Ripoff (TRUTH Social) Has Lost 36% of its Value Since He Began Posting On It
“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. […] 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?”

Trump’s Truth Social Owes its Web Hosting Service Millions and Hasn’t Made a Payment in Months
“In October, RightForge announced it entered into an agreement to host Truth Social, [but that] Truth Social has made just three payments and ceased making any payments since around March. RightForge claims that Truth Social owes it around $1.6 million and is threatening legal action.”

Trump Posts Hysterical Lie that ‘Everyone is Watching’ His Failing Twitter Ripoff, Truth Social
“…they say that I put my message out on Truth Social, a ‘little-used’ site with ‘few’ people watching. More Fake News. They know it’s now one of the hottest sites in the world.”

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

Trump Rants Hysterically as His PRAVDA Social Bans Users Who Post the Truth About January 6th
“Trump’s Twitter copycat claiming it is ‘free from political discrimination,’ has reportedly banned users who posted information from Thursday’s congressional hearing on the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.”

That’s what Nunes regards “the most important creation in Donald Trump’s whole career”? Unfortunately for Nunes and Trump, it’s only going to get worse. The deal to take it public is falling apart. The financing to capitalize it will be gone when it does. It can never compete with Twitter or other social media sites.

As for Trump, he has sworn that he will never return to Twitter, even if Elon Musk’s teetering bid to buy it happens to go through. Which would be a risky bet. That would leave Trump yelling into the void where only his most devoted cult followers reside. Which would be a great relief to the rest of the nation – and world – that is sick to death of his petulant whining.

Trump Whines that He’s ‘Really Rich’ in Pathetic Attempt to Cure His Truth Social Disease

For years Donald Trump has bragged about his alleged wealth as proof of his self-proclaimed brilliance and competence as a successful businessman. Never mind that he inherited his fortune and ran it into the ground with foolish investments and bad management. He would have made more money if he had simply put his inheritance in an S&P 500 index fund.

Now Trump is using the same sort of impotent boasting to salve his gargantuan but fragile ego after more bad news about his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social came out. The website he founded after Twitter suspended his account “due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” has been a disaster from its inception. And it’s actually gotten worse since Trump began using it himself.

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

The latest truth published about “Truth” Social is that Google has banned it from their Google Play app store due to its tolerance and promotion of violence. Bloomberg News reports that…

“Google’s Play store is declining to distribute Donald Trump’s Truth Social app, saying the network still needs to resolve the fact that it hosts violent threats and other content that goes against Google’s standards.”

In response to this story, Trump posted a furious comment that is rife with ridiculous claims of how his social media scam is thriving. He raged that…

“TRUTH is doing really well. It has truly become our MAGA VOICE, but also a voice for the RINOs and Radical Left Lunatics. Engagements are far better, more interesting, and spirited than anywhere else. I like it much better than Twitter, which is a complete mess. Sign up on TRUTH now, only getting stronger. Google is coming along nicely (I think?). SEC trying to hurt company doing financing (SPAC). Who knows? In any event, I don’t need financing, “I’m really rich!” Private company anyone???”

As usual, Trump can’t seem to get anywhere close to reality in his pitiful efforts to pretend that he isn’t a big loser. Trump’s alternative facts are diametrically opposed to what is actually happening with his vanity website. Both Trump’s “Trump Media and Technology Group” (TMTG), and “Digital World Acquisition Corporation” (DWAC), the shell company that was expected to take the new business public, are in serious legal and financial trouble. DWAC has declined in value by 75% from its high mark last March. And that’s not all…

“Trump’s Twitter copycat claiming it is ‘free from political discrimination,’ has reportedly banned users who posted information from Thursday’s congressional hearing on the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.”

That’s what Trump regards as “doing really well”? If he thinks that his anti-social site is a voice for what he calls “Radical Left Lunatics,” he may just get that insanity defense he’s been angling for. He is correct, however, – and he has bragged that – the site serves as a voice for himself and the other MAGA terrorists that President Biden recently called out so eloquently.

RELATED: Here’s All the MAGA in Biden’s ‘Soul of America’ Speech – And Trump’s Crackpot Critique

Finally, if Trump is so damn rich, why does he spend so much time begging for money from his hillbilly cult followers? And he doesn’t even use a penny of it for what he promises it’s being raised for. Such as electing MAGA Republicans, advancing his “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him, and fighting the multitude of legal battles due to his inbred corruption.

And yet, his glassy-eyed disciples still open their wallets for his cons. It would be sad if it weren’t so funny and so destructive of his own nefarious goals.

UPDATE: DWAC failed to get backing for an extension to complete their merger with Trump’s Truth Social venture. Which means they will have to forfeit billions in pledged investments and a place on the stock exchange. Next stop…another Trump bankruptcy.

Trump’s Truth Social Owes its Web Hosting Service Millions and Hasn’t Made a Payment in Months

Two days after the January 6th insurrection that Donald Trump incited, Twitter permanently suspended his account “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” Undaunted, Trump soldiered on determined to provide his glassy-eyed cult disciples with a steady stream of lies, hostility, and self-exaltation.

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

Trump eventually launched his own social media app, Truth Social, that was a blatant ripoff of Twitter. From its inception the venture was pure Trump, in that it was a fetid failure built on a foundation of fraud. After missing several launch dates, and racking up potential users on a waiting list of thousands, the site went live to a pitifully small audience, which didn’t stop Trump from claiming that it was “one of the hottest sites in the world.”

RELATED: Trump Posts Hysterical Lie that ‘Everyone is Watching’ His Failing Twitter Ripoff, Truth Social

That, however was just the beginning of Trump’s problems. The company he started to run the site, Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), and the shell company that he intended to use to get it listed on the stock exchange, Digital World Acquisition Corporation (DWAC), both became mired in legal muck.

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

Now, to no one’s surprise, Trump is sinking ever more into legal and financial trouble. A story published by the Fox News Business site (that’s right, Fox News) is reporting that Truth Social has failed to make payments to the web hosting service that it runs on. According to Fox Business

“In October, RightForge announced it entered into an agreement to host Truth Social, which Trump helped create after he was banned by Twitter following the Jan. 6 riots. RightForge now contends that Truth Social has reneged on its contractually obligated monthly payments for setting up the platform’s web-servicing infrastructure, according to three people with direct knowledge of the matter.

“These people say RightForge contends that Truth Social has made just three payments and ceased making any payments since around March. RightForge claims that Truth Social owes it around $1.6 million and is threatening legal action to recoup the money, these people add.”

So in its short lifespan, Truth Social has sputtered to the starting gate, left its users hanging, lost 70% of its value (at DWAC), and is currently being investigated by a federal Grand Jury and the Securities and Exchange Commission. All of which is the predictable path of any Trump enterprise. However, the Fox Business story also notes that Trump is in even much bigger trouble personally…

“Trump himself faces mounting legal woes including a Justice Department probe over his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot; a New York state civil probe into the finances of the Trump Organization, his real estate and branding business; and, most recently, a DOJ probe into whether he mishandled classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate that led to the recent FBI raid.”

RELATED: Trump’s Lawyers Have a Shiny New Excuse for His Hoarding Classified Documents at Mar-a-Lago

And if all of that isn’t bad enough, Axios is reporting that Truth Social’s trademark application has been denied. Apparently, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office “found two other companies who already use the Truth Social wording.”

That suggests a measure of laziness and/or incompetence that could only be achieved by Trump. After all, he can’t even get the name of his web site correct…

Trump Posts Hysterical Lie that ‘Everyone is Watching’ His Failing Twitter Ripoff, Truth Social

The desperation of Donald Trump continues to present itself with virtually every public comment he makes.

Donald Trump Pacifier Fox

In the two weeks since the FBI retrieved numerous boxes of classified material from his Mar-a-Lago bunker, Trump has frantically fabricated a stream of increasingly bizarre excuses for his illegally hoarding sensitive national security documents in the insecure basement of his Palm Beach hotel/home.

RELATED: Trump’s Lawyers Have a Shiny New Excuse for His Hoarding Classified Documents at Mar-a-Lago

Now Trump is lashing out wildly to change the subject again. On Sunday morning Trump took to his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, to whine about the “Fake News” correctly describing his social media scam as “little used.” He sobbed that…

“It’s amazing, I’ve had two stories — one in Politico, one in the Fake New York Times, where in the midst of the story, they say that I put my message out on Truth Social, a ‘little-used’ site with ‘few’ people watching. More Fake News. They know it’s now one of the hottest sites in the world, but they will never admit it, that’s why they call them the Fake News. Everyone is watching.”

What’s amazing is how brazenly Trump can lie without a hint of shame. The charge that Trump is making against the New York Times and Politico are based solely on the fallacies that fill his feeble mind. If Trump truly thinks that Truth Social is “one of the hottest sites in the world,” and that “they” know it, he is more cognitively collapsing than previously known. Also, the only ones calling the media “fake news” are Trump and his cult followers.

Trump’s post links to the ultra-rightist Washington Examiner as his source for these flagrant falsehoods. The Examiner just quotes an article on Vice News. Vice reports accurately that downloads of Truth Social did spike following the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago. But that was hardly anything to celebrate:

“In the week prior to the August 8 search of Mar-a-Lago, the Truth Social app was downloaded less than 20,000 times, averaging around 2,500 downloads per day from Apple’s app store.

“However in the week after the search, details of which were first announced publicly by Trump himself on Truth Social, it was downloaded 107,500 times, an average of 13,400 per day.”

Let’s put that into context. Twitter currently has more than two hundred million active daily users. Truth Social is hovering at about half a million. Which doesn’t really qualify it as a “hot” site. What’s more, Truth Social’s user data is sketchy at best. They report Trump as having three million followers, which is two and a half million more than the site’s total. He had 80 million on Twitter. Vice went on to say that…

“From the beginning, Truth Social has been beset by technical problems. There was initially a huge backlog of users who simply couldn’t get onto the platform. It was also only available on Apple’s platform; there is still no Android app available (it’s ‘coming soon,’ the company says) and registrations are currently closed for new users, according to the platform’s website.

For the record, the New York Times article that Trump appears to be referring to was about his childishly sarcastic “endorsements” of Democratic candidates Carolyn Maloney and Dan Goldman, who immediately rejected him. However, there doesn’t seem to be any Politico article that makes the claim that Trump is yammering about.

The bottom line is that if Trump really wants to spread his lies that Truth Social is a hotbed of online activity, he’s going to have to post them somewhere other than Truth Social where hardly anyone will see them. The site is ghost town. Which is, ironically, what Truth Social’s CEO, Devin Nunes, called Twitter on Fox News.

HUH? Trump Says Docs FBI Retrieved From Mar-a-Lago Were Covered By Attorney-Client Privilege

The evidence of Donald Trump’s criminality continues to mount with each new day. While Trump and his glassy-eyed disciples in politics and the press complain that there is no precedent for an American president to be investigated as much as Trump, what they are missing is that there is also no precedent for an American president who has been implicated in so many crimes.

Donald Trump WTF

Trump’s relentless whining about what he calls “hoaxes” and “witch hunts” is a poor substitute for a substantive rebuttal. It just affirms that he is an emotionally stunted coward with a persecution complex. As a result, rather than providing proof of his innocence or coherent explanations for his unsavory behavior, the only thing we get from Trump World is a stream of implausible excuses that are inevitably shown to be pure nonsense. That has been strikingly evident in his increasingly bizarre reactions to the FBI search of his Mar-a-Lago Bunker.

RELATED: Trump’s TV Lawyer Keeps Contradicting His (Variable) Excuses for Hoarding Classified Materials

Trump’s past parade of pleadings could be summarized thusly: The documents that don’t exist, and which Trump refused to return when subpoenaed, were actually there, but he was using them, even though someone else packed them without his knowledge, which didn’t happen because the FBI planted them, and the documents that the FBI planted were all declassified in a secret ceremony, and once declassified they still weren’t released to the public, and can’t be released now.

However, apparently that wasn’t enough to steer attention away from his legal and moral transgressions. So on Sunday morning Trump latched unto a report from Fox News, despite his conviction that they are part of the cabal that opposes him.

The “Exclusive” report by Fox News asserted that “FBI seized Trump records covered by attorney-client privilege during search of Mar-a-Lago.” The entire story was based on anonymous sources that Trump and Fox routinely claim don’t exist. If these sources do exist – and they aren’t notorious liars in the Trump cult – you have to wonder whether they had the necessary security clearances to review the sensitive documents Trump had stashed. Fox wrote that…

“The FBI seized boxes containing records covered by attorney-client privilege and potentially executive privilege during its raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News.”

Based on that single report, Trump posted on his miserably failing (and grossly misnamed) Twitter ripoff, TRUTH Social, that…

“Oh great! It has just been learned that the FBI, in its now famous raid of Mar-a-Lago, took boxes of privileged “attorney-client” material, and also “executive” privileged material, which they knowingly should not have taken. By copy of this TRUTH, I respectfully request that these documents be immediately returned to the location from which they were taken. Thank you!”

First of all, it is preposterous to say that we have “learned” anything from a story on Fox (Not) News. But more to the point, the allegation that attorney-client privileged documents were among those that the FBI retrieved is absurd in the extreme. The only communications that could be designated as privileged would be private and not mixed in with official White House materials.

Furthermore, why would Trump have to learn from Fox News that documents that he removed from the White House and stored at his golf resort were privileged? Is he confessing that he had no idea what were in all of those boxes that he took? Because that would destroy his excuse that any classified documents were declassified prior to their removal. He surely couldn’t declassify documents that he didn’t know were there. Nor could he claim that any of them were covered by executive privilege.

Finally, Trump’s “request” that any documents be returned to him is downright laughable. He hasn’t offered any proof that he has any right to any of the documents. And he cannot simply declare that his post on social media constitutes a formal, legally authorized demand. Just as he cannot declassify documents with a wave of his tiny hand. The only thing that Trump can reasonably expect to be returned are indictments for his copious criminal activities.

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.
