Are Trump’s Nazi Videos and Hateful Posts Why Truth Social Lost $327 Million and 19% of Users?

The bad news for Donald Trump is piling up as his trial for falsifying business records and election interference (sometimes known as the “hush money” trial is winding down. On Tuesday Trump’s defense counsel rested their case after calling only two witnesses, one of which was immensely beneficial – to the prosecutors.

Donald Trump calls for a "Unified Reich"

Compounding Trump’s troubles is the quarterly financial report from his Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), the company that operates his floundering social media scam, Truth Social. The report notes that…

“Trump Media & Technology Group lost more than $300 million during the first quarter and generated very little revenue, the owner of Truth Social announced in a press release Monday. The results will raise additional questions about the multi-billion dollar valuation on the newly public company, which is majority owned by former President Donald Trump.” […] “The company generated just $770,500 of revenue, marking the second-straight quarter where its revenue totaled less than $1 million.” […]

“In April, the conservative-friendly social network experienced a 19% year-over-year drop in average daily active US users on iOS and Android to just 113,000, according to market research firm Similarweb. Rival X (formerly known as Twitter) had more than 34 million users on iOS and Android.”

In the just first quarter of 2024 TMTG lost $327 million on revenue of less than $1 million. Which makes its stock valuation of $6 billion something of a joke. What’s more, Truth Social lost nearly 20% of their active users in the past year. That loss comes during an election year when interest in Trump by his cult followers ought to be at a peak.

So what would account for these significant losses of cash, advertisers, and users? Perhaps it has something to do with Truth Social’s primary (only) reason for existing, Donald Trump. He posts relentlessly every day to his glassy-eyed disciples. And those posts are generally hostile attacks, infantile insults, and forecasts of doom, sprinkled with a hefty dose of narcissistic self-exaltation and hero worship. Maybe that isn’t the best sort of content to sustain an audience.

An example of the messaging that Trump regularly engages in was a video he posted Monday that asked the burning questions: “What’s next for America?” and “What happens after Donald Trump wins?” The video (now deleted) answered those questions with images of newspaper headlines including one that heralded the Trumpian future as being “DRIVEN BY THE CREATION OF A UNIFIED REICH.”

Trump has often exhibited his affinity for Nazi principles and rhetoric. He famously dined at his Mar-a-Lago bunker with the avowed neo-Nazi, Nicholas Fuentes. He praised racist Nazi protesters in Charlottesville, Virgina, as being “very fine people.” He uses language taken from Hitler’s speeches that refers to immigrants as “vermin” who are “poisoning the blood” of America.

Trump’s response to having been criticized for this video never bothered to condemn it’s vile views. He just blamed it on an anonymous staffer. Here is that response, along with with the thoughts of President Biden’s spokesperson, as reported by Politico

Trump spokesperson Karoline Leavitt: “This was not a campaign video, it was created by a random account online and reposted by a staffer who clearly did not see the word, while the President was in court.”

Biden spokesperson James Singer: Donald Trump is not playing games; he is telling America exactly what he intends to do if he regains power: rule as a dictator over a ‘Unified Reich.'”

You’ll notice that Trump didn’t apologize for or renounce the video. He just slithered out of taking any responsibility for it. Because he doesn’t disagree with its content. He’s just afraid that getting caught might hamper his authoritarian aspirations to reoccupy the White House. That’s all he cares really about. Which is why it is imperative that he be soundly defeated in November. He needs to be as big a failure as a politician as he is as a tech mogul.

Trump Brags that Truth Social is the ‘Voice’ of His ‘Movement’ and Begs His Cult to Support It

Shortly after Donald Trump incited the violent insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, he was banned from Twitter in order to prevent him from fomenting more riots by spreading more lies about the 2020 presidential election being “rigged and stolen” from him.

Donald Trump

In retaliation for that preventative measure by the responsible moderators at Twitter at the time, Trump launched his own social media site, Truth Social, that he promised would be a bastion of free speech for everyone. Of course, that was never the purpose of the site. It was always intended to be a platform for Trump to disgorge his rancid rants that consisted almost entirely of attacking his enemies, exalting himself, and funneling cash into his own pockets. The latter of which hasn’t worked out particularly well for him…

SEE THIS: Trump’s Truth Social Craters in First Week of Trading, Auditor Doubts Its Ability to Continue

In the few weeks that the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG) stock has been listed on the NASDAQ, it has suffered devastating losses. It has declined 62.5% from the high it hit on its first day of trading. Anyone who invested in it, and didn’t sell on day one, has already lost a bundle. It’s CEO couldn’t account for its flopping on Fox News. And it’s only gonna get worse.

Consequently, Trump is attempting to pump up the stock so that there is something left for him when he is legally able to dump it. Which, barring any favors from the TMTG boar, won’t be for six months. So on Friday morning Trump posted a comment on Truth Social to beseech his glassy-eyed cult disciples to bail him out.

“I am so proud of Truth Social, because I believe it represents the Make America Great Again Movement, and it shows the Spirit and Love of our Country. If people who believe in putting America First and want to Make America Great Again, support TRUTH, we will be your Voice like never before, and a Real Voice is what our Country needs, because we are in decline, and must bring America to Greatness. Think of this as a Movement, the Greatest Movement in the History of our Country. We are going to Save our Country, and Make America Great Again, GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE!”

Let’s set aside the pathetic spectacle of this fake billionaire begging his saps to salvage his sinking social media scam. And never mind the absurdity of Trump praising it as a place that “shows the Spirit and Love of our Country,” when it’s mostly a fetid swamp of hostility and negativity. Even in this comment Trump maligns America as a country “in decline.”

What Trump is actually revealing here is that the site is not, and never was, the Internet “town hall” that he promised. He is now saying explicitly that it is his vehicle to exclusively promote his interests and to advance his “movement.” And therefore, he implores his MAGA minions to “support TRUTH.” In other words, join and prop up his failing business and stock.

So according to Trump, Truth Social isn’t really a free speech platform at all. It’s the PR arm of a partisan movement (aka cult), and slush fund generator for Dear Leader. But if it were truly “the Greatest Movement in the History of our Country,” he wouldn’t have to shamelessly solicit this support, and sponge off of his pitiful flock, and lie about his imaginary success. But then again, when has he ever done anything but that?

Fox News Host Asks Trump’s Truth Social CEO About its Stock Flop, Gets Babbling Lies in Response

The saga of Donald Trump’s frequent financial failures continues unabated into the 2024 presidential election cycle. The most recent example of a Trump enterprise that is destined to go belly up is his ego-driven social media scam, Truth Social, that he launched after he was banned from Twitter for posting flagrant and dangerous lies.

Donald Trump, Stock Market

In its short history, the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), which runs Truth Social, has racked up an impressive record of failure. It has lost millions of dollars, been investigated for securities fraud, and seen its early investors arrested for insider trading. And to top it off, its newly listed stock suffered a massive meltdown, resulting in fortunes being lost by Trump’s most devoted supporters.

SEE THIS: Trump’s Truth Social Craters in First Week of Trading, Auditor Doubts Its Ability to Continue

On Sunday morning Devin Nunes, the CEO of TMTG, and former Trump-fluffing GOP congressman, was interviewed by Maria Bartiromo on Fox News. The segment began with a surprisingly accurate summary of the troubles the stock encountered in going public. Bartiromo, ordinarily an ardent purveyor of pro-Trump propaganda, prefaced her interview with some uncharacteristically (for Fox News) factual information (video below)

“President Trump’s media company has had a volatile two weeks. The stock finished down about 30% this week. The company, which operates Trump’s Truth Social platform, lost $4 billion in market value after gaining six billion in value during its debut on the Nasdaq two weeks ago. For 2023, Trump media posted a loss of $58 million on revenue and $4.1 million in a regulatory filing. The company also disclosed that its auditor had raised concerns about its ability to continue operating before its recent merger and IPO.”

OUCH! Bartiromo then introduced Nunes and asked him pointedly, “When would you expect this company to turn profitable?” Notice that Nunes never comes close to answering the question. Instead, he rambles incoherently about unrelated and/or imaginary obstacles that he says the company has faced. And true to the Trump ethos, the company was a victim of a devious cabal of covert enemies conspiring against it.

“Look, it’s important to remember that those numbers are based on what was the longest IPO in history. So we were over regulated. So if you actually look at the cost we built Truth Social – our beachhead against Big Tech, an impenetrable beachhead that everybody said couldn’t be done without using Big Tech companies – that was built for a fraction of what many of these Big Tech dinosaur companies were built for. So even if you take the ridiculous cost that it took us to get to this point, we are well positioned. Why are we well positioned? Because we have no debt. We’re coming out of this with no debt, a platform that works really, really well, that communicates to millions of people. And then we have $200 million in the bank.”

For the record, it was not the longest IPO in history. And his definition of “over regulated” just means having been required to comply with the same laws that every other company does prior to a stock market listing. If it was launched on the cheap, as Nunes claims, that’s apparent in how often it has crashed, including on the day it premiered on the NASDAQ. So much for it being “a platform that works really, really well.”

As for Nunes’ claims that the company is “well positioned” and free of debt, that reeks of stock fraud considering its huge losses, of which about 67% is interest on outstanding loans. Undeterred by reality, Nunes then unleashes a buzzword salad, saying that he is looking at “the entire ecosystem,” and asserting that the primary question his business is asking is “What does it take to make sure that we protect people in the United States and around the globe from these tyrants of Big Tech who want to silence them?” See? It’s all an altruistic venture for Nunes and Trump.

Of course, Nunes is not alone in his deceitful grifting. Trump has also been pumping this dump of a stock. A few days ago he posted a comment blasting all of his competitors as “those in the Radical Left Democrats Party who are failing at every level.” And he touted Truth Social as “the primary way I get the word out and, for better or worse.” It’s interesting that he acknowledges the “worse” part of that. Then he claimed that “people want to hear what I have to say, perhaps, according to experts, more than anyone else in the World.” And by “experts” he means his MAGA cultists and other assorted rubes, such as his army of disbarred attorneys and the incarcerated January 6th insurrectionists.

If Nunes’ appearance on Fox News is successful in getting some more of their viewers to buy TMTG stock Monday morning, it may get a bit of bounce. But in the end it is still likely to sink to a level approaching the amount of debt that Nunes says the company has – ZERO! And they will get what they deserve for believing an obvious con men.

UPDATE I: Apparently Nunes’ appearance on Fox News was not successful (surprise). Rather than the bounce he hoped for on the Monday morning following his interview, the TMTG stock dived another 10%, putting it down about 55% from it’s high, and below it’s opening price one the first day of trading.

UPDATE II: One week later, the stock is continuing to decline. So the company announced that it is issuing 21.5 million new shares, diluting the value even more.

Trump’s Truth Social Craters in First Week of Trading, Auditor Doubts Its Ability to Continue

The myth of Donald Trump as a savvy businessman has been circling the drain for decades. In reality he is a nepo-baby who inherited his wealth and promptly lost much of it in failed real estate deals and multiple bankruptcies. He only managed to salvage his reputation by working as a TV game show host for fourteen seasons of “The Apprentice,” where he playacted as a successful and ruthless CEO.

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

Trump’s latest misadventure in business is his Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), a hollow shell of company formed by stealing a Twitter clone’s code and merging with a blank-check place holder on the Nasdaq stock exchange. From its inception it has stumbled through financial and legal sinkholes that would spell doom for any business not fronting for a populist cult leader.

New filings by TMTG show just how dismal the financial condition of the company is. NBC News is reporting that…

“Trump Media and Technology Group, which operates the Truth Social platform, reported it lost $58.2 million in 2023 while generating total revenues of $4.1 million, according to the Monday filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Trump Media listed its largest expense for the year as interest payments totaling more than $39 million.”

So TMTG is operating deep in the red, just like most of the red states where Trump’s most devoted disciples reside. And it’s notable that about 67% of the company’s reported expenses are in interest payments. That means they are heavily leveraged with loans that they will likely have trouble repaying considering their feeble revenue. The report went on to reveal even more ominous news, saying that…

“‘The filing includes a note from an independent accounting firm, Colorado-based BF Borgers CPA PC, warning that Trump Media’s ‘operating losses raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.’ The firm has worked with Trump Media since 2022.”

Anyone with even a novice’s knowledge of investing would have recognized that TMTG (with the doom-fated ticker symbol, “DJT”) was a catastrophe waiting to happen. And in its very first week on the stock market, it proved its worthlessness. Following the release of its financial filing the stock nosedived about 20%. It quickly sunk to the level that it priced at on its opening day a week ago. Shareholders who bought in at the beginning lost as much as 38% as the stock dropped from its high of $79.00 to under $50.00.

A lot of the press chatter about the stock has focused on the potential windfall it would present for Trump. At one point he was said to have gained a paper bounty of $6 billion. However, that presupposes that he sells his shares while stock price remains in the stratosphere. Which is a ship that has already sunk.

Furthermore, Trump is bound by a lock-up provision that prohibits him from selling any shares for six months. While the TMTG board – made up of mostly Trump flunkies – could vote to waive that provision, it would still be problematic for him to sell. For one thing, it would immediately tank the share value of the stock. That would impact the holdings of all of the board members and temper any enthusiasm to give Trump a waiver.

What’s more, if the board did give Trump a waiver, it would open the board members up to lawsuits from every other shareholder, including deep-pocketed institutions, who would lose money as a result. It would, therefore be pretty stupid for the board to vote for a waiver that would cost the board members millions and put them in massive legal peril.

Would they do it anyway? Maybe. It is, after all, a cult. And the cult leader gets his way. He is even suing the founders of Truth Social for allegedly mismanaging the company in its early days. Although it is a retaliatory suit, because those founders sued him first for trying to deprive them of the shares they were contractually promised.

In addition to the financial risks for investors. TMTG poses a grave national security risk. Adversarial foreign interests could exploit the stock as a backdoor to funneling money (i.e. bribes) to Trump. Vladimir Putin and/or his Russian oligarchs, Mohammed Bin Salmon, Xi Jinping, and even wealthy, allegedly American billionaires, could simply purchase shares of TMTG to artificially inflate its stock price in exchange for “favors” from Trump.

All of this exposes Trump’s stock as a potentially dangerous vehicle for investors, as well as for all Americans and the sovereignty of the nation. The sooner it flatlines (representing its true value) the better. For the record, here are some other recent stories about Trump’s misadventures in social media and the stock market…

Trump’s Truth Social is Revealed to Be Another Terribly Risky Trump Scam – By Its Own Prospectus
A quick look at the company’s prospectus should frighten off any astute investors. It is exposed as “a high-risk, speculative operation with few hard numbers behind it. It’s already the subject of subpoenas, from regulators and a grand jury, even though it’s barely off the ground.”

Trump’s Truth Social Reports Massive Losses and Warns that it Could Go Out of Business
A Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing by the company reveals its financial frailty. The report paints a pitiful picture of the enterprise’s prospects going forward and reveals that it has lost $31.5 million since it opened for business just two years ago.

The Biden-Harris Campaign Exposes the GOP’s Bogus and Failed Biden Probe – on Truth Social

Fourteen months ago Republicans assumed a razor-thin majority in the House of Representatives. What they have done with it since then is a masterclass in incompetence, failure, and humiliation. They have chosen to conduct the business of government in a manner that replicates how Donald Trump conducts business – by driving it into bankruptcy.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, Congress, Mike Johnson

After taking fifteen votes to select their first Speaker, Kevin McCarthy, the Republicans threw him out after only none months. Then they spent three weeks to select their replacement, Mike Johnson, who was their fourth choice. And throughout all of this infighting and chaos, they have managed to score a modern day record for low productivity, essentially accomplishing nothing on behalf of the people they allegedly represent.

SEE THIS: DO-NOTHING CONGRESS? The Republican House of Representatives is the Most Productive Ever (LOL)

Having nothing affirmative to run on, Republicans decided that their only recourse was to stage phony investigations and baseless impeachment inquiries aimed at smearing President Biden, his family, and other Democrats. But even that has ended in abject failure because of one slight flaw in their strategy: They have absolutely zero evidence of any wrongdoing on Biden’s part. In fact, most of their own witnesses have testified that Biden never engaged in anything improper, much less illegal. Consequently, their defamatory scheme is falling apart and will likely be abandoned. As reported on CNN…

“This is not how Republicans thought their 15 month investigation would be going. When they got the majority, investigating the President and his family was a huge focus, But after 15 months pouring over a hundred thousand bank records, interviewing around 40 people, including the President’s son, Hunter, and brother James, their business associates, Department of Justice officials, IRS whistleblowers, Republicans haven’t found any evidence of wrongdoing by the President, and they don’t have the votes to impeach

To make matters worse for Republicans and Trump, this segment from CNN outlining the failure of the Republican smear job was also posted on Trump’s failing social media scam, Truth Social, by the Biden-Harris campaign. Of course, most of the users of that website won’t care much about reporting from CNN, but it still expands the exposure of this news into territory it might not otherwise reach.

However, the story doesn’t stop with CNN. The futility of the GOP’s fake probes has been so obvious that even Fox News had to acknowledge it. In a segment reporting on the current state of the GOP’s inquisition and the prospects for a Biden impeachment, Fox’s Shannon Bream reported that…

“I think it’s increasingly unlikely…I think Republicans are trying to be realistic with the margins that they have. And the Speaker seems to signaling that ‘maybe we’re not gonna push this to the floor for a vote.'”

That’s right. According to Fox News, the GOP doesn’t even have enough votes among their majority to pass the articles of impeachment that they have been yammering about for nearly a year and a half. To be sure, some of the hardcore deadenders will continue to try to push this nonsense. But they will soon tire of beating that deceased old nag. And when they do, the Biden-Harris account on Truth Social will let all of the Trump cultists know what is actually going on.

Trump’s Live-Bleating of Biden’s State of the Union Address Was Predictably Petty and Pathetic

President Biden’s State of the Union Address has been widely reviewed as a smashing success. He covered everything from the booming economy, to record job creation, to immigration, to abortion and reproductive rights, to gun safety reforms, to climate change, to foreign aid in Ukraine and Israel, to preserving democracy and civil liberties, and so much more.

Donald Trump, Presidenty

Biden spoke for about an hour, and his performance is being described as “fiery” and “forceful.” He was so good that Republicans have abandoned their childish taunts about his age and mental acuity, and replaced them with asinine allegations that he was on drugs. Sean Hannity and others took to calling him “Jacked-Up joe.”

The Biden campaign should have “Jacked-Up joe” t-shirts by the end of the week. They have been pretty good at trolling Trump and the MAGA crowd.

SEE ALSO: DARK BRANDON STRIKES AGAIN: Biden Drops Proof of Trump’s Mental Meltdowns on Truth Social

For his part, Donald Trump engaged in a live “truthing” of the speech on his failing social media scam, Truth Social. Which reportedly was crashing throughout his rage-fest. True to form, Trump’s outbursts were utterly devoid of substance or any resemblance to reality. Although they were chock full of tastelessness inanities. What follows are just a few choice examples from among the 79 posts Trump made. And, yes, they are all real.

“The first statement that Crooked Joe Biden should make tonight when addressing the Nation is that he will immediately terminate the Witch Hunt against his Political Opponent, ME. Prosecutors and Judges have teamed up as though we were a third world nation!”
Naturally, Trump is most concerned about his own problems, rather than those of the American people. Biden appropriately chose to ignore this subject.

“Thankfully, we won’t have to be looking at RINO Mitt Romney much longer!”
Trump continues to alienate fellow Republicans who are insufficiently worshipful of him.

“Who kissed him on the cheek with lipstick? Now he’s got lipstick on his face. How stupid of her!”
It was probably George Santos, who was actually in attendance. In any case, lipstick on Biden’s face is still better than that cheesy spray tan that Trump has on his.

“His hair is much better in the front than on the back!”
So now Trump is pretending to be a fashion critic. Although hair styling is not a subject that Trump seems to know much about.

“He looks so angry when he’s talking, which is a trait of people who know they are ‘losing it.’ The anger and shouting is not helpful to bringing our Country back together!” [and] “He is so angry and crazy!”
Now this is a subject that Trump does know something about. In fact, he seems to be talking about himself.

“THE DRUGS ARE WEARING OFF!”
Here is another subject with which Trump has some experience. Just ask his doctor, Rep. Ronny Jackson, who dispensed narcotics at the White House like candy. Adderall anyone?

“He wants to take away everyone’s gun. Remember that when you go to the Voting Booth, because if I’m not elected, your guns are GONE, along with your Freedom!”
Sounds like Trump wants people to be packing heat when they vote. And Biden has been President for more than three years and no one’s guns have been confiscated. He has never advocated disarming America. He just proposed to put common sense regulations in place to stop the carnage of gun violence.

“WHAT HAPPENED TO NANCY?”
Nancy Pelosi was in the chamber watching the speech. Maybe Trump meant Nikki Haley again. A better question might be “WHAT HAPPENED TO MELANIA?”

Trump closed his tirade by saying that “This was an angry, polarizing, and hate-filled Speech.” He complained that Biden didn’t begin with remarks about the border. And he made the ludicrous claim that Biden “wants our Country to be flooded with Migrants.” Then he concluded by saying that “The Story is that he got through it, he’s still breathing, and they didn’t have to carry him out in a straitjacket.

That’s right. Despite Trump saying that Biden can’t put two sentences together, Biden delivered a powerful speech that was well received. A post-speech poll by CNN found that 60% of those who watched it had a positive reaction. 35% reacted very positively. Also, 62% said Biden’s policies will move the U.S. in the right direction.

In addition, Trump said that Biden would not mention Laken Riley’s name (he did); that migrant crime is rampant (it’s not); and that Biden weaponized government for political purposes (that was Jim Jordan and James Comer). Those were just a few of the blatant lies Trump told. There were many more as documented in this fact-check. And he woke up Friday morning with still more lies to unload…

“Biden’s speech last night is getting ‘panned’ all over the World. Only the Radical Left lunatics are trying to make the best of it. It took him 41 minutes to talk, briefly, about Immigration and the Border, on the topic of which he was very weak. No talk of weaponization against his very calm and nice opponent. Angry as hell, this guy is a PSYCHO!”

Is there anything funnier – or more outrageously preposterous – than Donald Trump calling anyone else an “angry as hell” “PSYCHO!”? It’s textbook projection by a certified angry as hell psycho.

DARK BRANDON STRIKES AGAIN: Biden Drops Proof of Trump’s Mental Meltdowns on Truth Social

The ongoing Republican effort to smear President Biden as too old to serve is a transparently phony exercise in projection in order to distract the American people from Donald Trump’s tenuous grasp on reality. And it also reveals that the GOP has no substantive criticisms of the President, whose first term has been historically productive.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

Leading the way in the GOP’s malicious maligning of Biden is, of course, the chief MAGA-loid and cult messiah himself, Dear Leader Trump. Never mind that Trump’s mental acuity has been suspect for years. While Biden has made some mistakes when speaking, they were generally minor mispronunciations and verbal glitches that didn’t reflect on his intellect or ability to comprehend complex matters of state. Trump’s “mistakes,” however, are of a much more troubling nature. They expose his incoherency on issues, his racism and fear mongering, his vengefulness, and his sheer idiocy.

SEE THIS: Fox News ‘Doctor’ Makes Bogus Diagnosis of Biden that Fits Trump’s Cognitive Disorder Way Better

On Thursday Trump took to his failing social media scam, Truth Social, to renew his tedious and hollow attacks on Biden. He posted a comment that said…

“Crooked Joe Biden must take a Cognitive Test. Maybe that way we would be able to find out why he makes such terrible decisions. I took two of them, and ACED them both (no mistakes!). All Presidents, or people wanting to become President, should mandatorily take this test!”

Biden’s cognitive health is evident in his accomplishments. He has presided over a booming economy, unprecedented job creation, and a legislative agenda that includes progress on climate and the environment, healthcare, gun reforms, tax equity, infrastructure, manufacturing, and more. Meanwhile, Trump has been spending his days in court defending himself against dozens of civil and criminal charges.

Furthermore, Trump’s bragging about having “aced” two cognitive tests is pure bullpucky. He took tests that asked him to identify a camel and count backwards, and he thinks that establishes him as a candidate for Mensa membership.

SEE ALSO: Trump Suffers Mental Collapse Over Poll that Asks About His Obviously Collapsing Mental Health

What’s more, Trump’s demand that cognitive tests be mandatory is contrary to what the Constitution defines as requirements to serve as president. Not that Trump has ever cared about the Constitution. If he did he would observe what the 14th Amendment says about insurrectionists and withdraw from the race. He has even called for termination of parts of the Constitution that he doesn’t like.

SEE THIS: Trump Literally Calls for Termination of the Constitution and FREAKS OUT Over Bogus Fox News Story

Trump’s latest attack on Biden came on the same day that Biden posted a video mocking Trump’s failing mental state. The video contained examples of Trump mixing up the names of people, which he later tried to pretend was deliberate.

For good measure, the Biden-Harris campaign posted the same video on Trump’s Truth Social. So they are putting his flawed persona right in their faces. Not that his cult followers will be moved by actual proof that he is severely debilitated. They seem to like him better that way.

Their adoration wasn’t diminished when he bragged about grabbing women by the p***y, or when he said he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue, or when he was found liable for defamation and rape, or when dined with a professed Nazi at Mar-a-Lago, or when he “encouraged” Vladimir Putin to attack our NATO allies, or when he exalted himself as akin to the messiah. So why would a severe mental handicap bother them now?

The Biden-Harris Campaign Posts MSNBC Video of Trump’s Tyrannical Tendencies on Truth Social

The new year has barely begun, but in its infancy there have already been some significant events that will likely shape the rest of the year as it progresses toward a profoundly significant election. Among them are the judgments against Donald Trump for defamation, rape, and financial fraud, that total nearly half a billion dollars that he likely doesn’t have.

Donald Trump, Joe Biden

As the 2024 presidential election cycle heats up, both Democrats and Republicans are beginning to sharpen their focus on their opponents. For Donald Trump that sharpening comes in the form of ever increasing crackpottery, including his noxious infatuation with his idol, Vladimir Putin, who he says he will “encourage” to attack our NATO allies unless they pay protection money.

SEE THIS: Trump is Running a Mob-Style Protection Racket Whose Victims Include NATO and Taylor Swift

For Democrats, their sharpening is aligned with the principles they embrace as a party that is committed to advancing the interests of all Americans. President Biden has already been focusing his campaign on substantive issues that the American people care about, such as jobs, abortion, climate and environment, healthcare, gun reforms, tax equity, diplomacy, and saving democracy. While Trump has been ranting feverishly about “witch hunts,” “election interference,” and scary brown immigrants.

On Thursday the Biden-Harris campaign team took a step outside of the safe harbor of friendly media to confront Trump’s MAGA Republicans where they live – on Trump’s failing social media scam, Truth Social They posted a video clip of a discussion on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” that featured former Republican congressman, David Jolly. In the clip Jolly noted that Trump has never criticized Putin, and fails to recognize that he is a dictator. Elaborating, he said (Note: this tweet is the same as the post on Truth Social)

“Let’s talk about why Donald Trump won’t say anything. Clearly he’s under the influence of Vladimir Putin, or he has sympathies for Vladimir Putin’s agenda, and he refuses to stand up for the national security interests of the United States […] This is more than Trump now. This appears to be the Republican orthodoxy that’s providing equity to Russia and to Putin, and it’s very dangerous [and that] Vladimir Putin and Russia are a threat to Western security interests. But so is Donald Trump.”

The truth of Jolly’s commentary is obvious to clear-eyed observers who have followed Trump and his adoration of Putin. But Trump’s cult disciples on Truth Social are generally shielded from this sort of honest appraisal. They may still be unaware of its existence unless they deliberately seek it out. But the act of placing it in their domain is a fun exercise in trolling. And it could result in some of them getting exposed accidently.

The Biden-Harris campaign is making a point simply by posting the video. They aren’t afraid to engage with MAGA on their own turf. Trump however, will never venture outside of his hermetically sealed MAGA bunker, surrounded by sycophants and bootlickers. Even though the results of that cowardice may ultimately do him more harm than good.

The criticism in Jolly’s commentary has been expressed by others, including by some of Trump’s former insiders. But it needs to be disseminated more widely throughout the campaign season. Trump’s worshipful embrace of Putin, and his envy of Putin’s domineering authoritarianism, is a threat to American democracy. And it cannot be permitted to take hold.

Consequently, the Biden-Harris campaign should continue to deliver that message everywhere. Not because it is likely to convince Trump cultists to change their views. But because it needs to fill the information vacuum and set the narrative for the coming election. And also because it’s just darn funny to rub their noses in some truth every now and then.

Trump’s Truth Social is Revealed to Be Another Terribly Risky Trump Scam – By Its Own Prospectus

The insufferable saga of Donald Trump’s Truth Social website, and his desperate attempts to remain relevant online since he was booted from Twitter, is continuing to descend ever deeper into an abyss of his own making. And this downward spiraling is accelerating despite his relentless contributions of posts that are primarily incoherent and emotional outbursts of hostility, ignorance, and self-exaltation.

This week the Securities and Exchange Commission inexplicably approved the merger between Truth Social’s parent company, Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), and Digital World Acquisition Corp (DWAC), the shell company that Trump hopes to use to get a stock market listing. That news contributed to DWAC’s stock price tripling since the beginning of the year ($16.00- $48.00). Or maybe it was because the Biden-Harris campaign created a Truth Social account and began posting a few weeks ago.

However, no one but confirmed Trump Cult devotees should be jumping into this stock if they care about preserving their money. A quick look at the company’s prospectus should frighten off any astute investors. Some of the risks disclosed in the prospectus were reported by MarketWatch

“Truth Social, his would-be Twitter rival, is a high-risk, speculative operation with few hard numbers behind it. It’s already the subject of subpoenas, from regulators and a grand jury, even though it’s barely off the ground. Oh, and Trump is not required to use the social-media site much — if at all — to communicate with the public, notably if voters were to return him to the White House. You buy the stock at your own peril.”

[And…]

“Digital World has been in trouble with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and recently agreed to pay $18 million to settle fraud charges relating to this potential merger.”

[And…]

“A number of companies that were associated with President Trump have filed for bankruptcy…There can be no assurances that TMTG will not also fail.”

The prospectus also discloses the six bankruptcies among Trump’s hotels and casinos, and other business failures, such as his airline, vodka, steaks, mortgage, and travel agency. Also mentioned was his fraudulent university that was ordered to pay $25 million in compensatory damages. The article didn’t mention his bogus charity that was also fined and shuttered.

Furthermore, the prospectus included a section enumerating Trump’s numerous pending criminal cases. The 91 felony charges included everything from financial fraud, to inciting a violent insurrection, to threatening election officials, to stealing (and perhaps disseminating) classified documents. And let’s not forget his being found civilly liable for rape and ordered to pay $354 million for falsifying his financial statements.

MarketWatch noted that TMTG reported a measly 8.9 million users. But that’s okay because it “believes that adhering to traditional key performance indicators, such as signups, average revenue per user, ad impressions and pricing, or active user accounts” is a distraction.

Perhaps they are figuring in Trump’s “brand” value. Although on that measure, the prospectus says that Trump is only “required to post certain of his social-media messages there first…And the Truth Social exclusivity on each post only lasts for six hours. [and he] can even cancel this agreement with 30 days’ notice, ‘at any time on or after February 2, 2025.'” Which is suspiciously just two weeks after Inauguration Day.

The recent surge in DWAC’s stock should be regarded with ample amounts of skepticism. The stock has had similar spikes – and subsequent declines – several times. Investors and Trump Cult disciples who bought in at $170.00 a share are still seriously screwed. But maybe they continue to believe that Trump can earn it all back with his latest business venture: grotesquely gold “Never Surrender” sneakers…

UPDATE: As evidence that Trump will eventually turn on you, no matter who you are and how much you suck up to him, Truth Social co-founders accuse Trump of trying to rip them off in merger.

For the record, here are some other recent stories about Trump’s misadventures in social media and the stock market…

The Biden-Harris Campaign Trolls Trump and Fox News on Truth Social with ‘Blowout’ Jobs Report

Last week the evidence that Bidenomics is working spectacularly well was revealed in the monthly jobs report that far exceeded expectations. That performance has become routine during President Biden’s term in office as his agenda of building the economy from the middle out, and from the bottom up, has delivered blockbuster results.

Dark Biden, Fox News

The success of the measures executed by Biden and the Democrats is in stark contrast to those employed by Republicans and Donald Trump. During Trump’s occupation of the White House he devotedly advanced the interests of corporations and the wealthy, to the detriment of average Americans. And the outcome proved to be devastating as he left office with the worst jobs record since Herbert Hoover. That contrast recently seeped into a segment of Fox News’ “The Five”

The Biden administration’s stellar employment stats also made it into Fox News reporting. Although their reception of what is unarguably good news was something less than celebratory. For the most part they tried to downplay the news or find negative crumbs they could chew on. But in the end, the positivity of the numbers was hard to suppress and/or disguise.

The glad financial tidings were so tremendous that they were even recognized by Trump’s former director of his National Economic Council, Larry Kudlow, who now works for Fox News. Kudlow’s commentary on the matter was surprisingly complimentary. So much so that the Biden-Harris campaign featured it in their social media posts, including their account on Trump’s failing Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, along with a few other entertaining messages.

[Note: The following posts all appeared on Truth Social, but these are the same posts on Twitter, so as to avoid making people dirty themselves by visiting Trump’s website]

“We had a blowout jobs report. More than twice the consensus expectations. Now, I know many of my conservative friends are trying to drill holes in this report. But you know what, folks? It is what it is. It’s a very strong report. Not every economic stat should be viewed through a political lens. […] 353,000 gained in non-farm payroll – a very big number. Prior two months revised up by 126,000 – another big number. And the bottom line here is more Americans are working. And that’s a good thing no matter what your party registration is.”

The 2024 presidential year is bound to feature more of Trump’s madness, hostility, and failure, as well as Biden’s competence, compassion, and success. Biden has already been focusing his campaign on substantive issues that the American people care about, such as jobs, abortion, climate and environment, healthcare, gun reforms, tax equity, diplomacy, and saving democracy.

Meanwhile, Trump has been ranting feverishly about “witch hunts,” “election interference,” and scary brown immigrants. His entire campaign is consumed by two issues that have zero significance to the American people: 1) His “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged and stolen” from him. And 2) His relentless whining about his legal tribulations, such as the 91 criminal charges he faces, and his civil litigation that has already found him liable for defamation and rape.

Therein lie the factors that voters must consider when choosing who to vote for in November. And if anyone is having any trouble with that decision, then they have been hopelessly devoured by the Trump cult. Let them go. They are lost to us.

Thankfully, there are way more Americans who are sane, reachable, and love their country. Many who have not voted before, or not voted for Democrats. And they should be the targets of Democratic campaign efforts going forward.
