Donald Trump Social Media WTF?!

Desperate To Remain Relevant, Trump Plans New Social Media Platform: Report

Now that he’s been out of office for almost two months, failed, one-term former president Donald Trump cannot stand no longer being the center of attention, so he’s planning to launch his own social media platform, according to spokesman Jason Miller, who made the announcement on Fox News Sunday.

Miller told Fox host Howard Kurtz:

“I do think that we’re going to see President Trump returning to social media, in probably about two or three months here, with his own platform.

“This is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media.”

Miller added that Trump is taking meetings and talking to lots of people about his plans:

“It will be big once he starts. There have been a lot of high-powered meetings he’s been having at Mar-a-Lago with some teams of folks who have been coming in, and I gotta tell you, it’s not just one company that’s approached the president, there have been numerous companies… Everyone wants him.”

That sounds like classic Trumpian hype: It’s going to be the biggest and best thing ever; everyone wants him and the world has never seen anything like this before!

But does anyone actually think that a new social media platform that has Trump attached to it stands a snowball’s chance in hell against Facebook and Twitter? If you do, consider the fate of Parler, the right-wing social media site that launched in 2018, floundered for over a year, got some traction, and then was booted offline when Amazon stop providing service to them, CNET noted at the time:

“The company has crossed swords with Amazon Web Services, which cut support for the company in January. Google and Apple also took aim at Parler, removing its app from their stores.”

Does anyone think a new platform spewing Trump’s brand of hatred and vitriol will fare any better? Twitter users sure don’t:

So the Trump social media “empire” is about to be launched? Give it six months and it’ll be bankrupt or under criminal indictment like everything Don the Con has ever attached his name to.
