Somebody sure misses the days when he controlled the country’s mood tweet by tweet. The Former Guy is bragging that he’s ‘created a new platform’ to communicate with the remaining MAGA faithful. Thing is, it’s not only new, it sounds like he just recycled an old LiveJournal account from 2002 and renamed it “From the Desk Of Donald J. Trump” (quick aside: seeing his name like that will never not make me think of Elmer J. Fudd, with all due apologies to the entire Warner Brothers cartoon family).
Trump’s “communications platform” will eventually give him the ability to communicate directly with his followers after months of being banned from sites like Twitter and Facebook. Except it’s web-browser-based only, has no mobile app, and does not even allow comments, or posts to be embedded. It’s like if your grandparents didn’t wait for you to help them set up a GoDaddy site.
If I were Jack Dorsey, I’d sue Trump for copyright infringement, because that’s one Twitter-profile-looking blog page. But I digress.
Supporters can sign up to be notified of when Trump sends a message. Basically, the Whiniest Whiner Who Once Lived In the Whine–er, White–House, can whine into an open blog set up by one of grandchildren assistants, and then his minions are expected to spread The Best Words to the social medias where he’s not allowed to do any posting. So, he’s resorting to subterfuge while grifting his fanbase, how not at all shocking.
Trump's new "blog" is all about the money. It even has the recurring donation box conveniently checked for you already. pic.twitter.com/nZGNNhMTAK

Of course grifter Trump's new blog site masquerading as a social media site (like fence vs. Wall) has a donate button.

45’s new Dollar Store Twitter looks like it will be more relentless petty attacks on Republicans. https://t.co/CU8wefekHn

The delightful irony of this is that he’s being reamed on Twitter where he can’t even see it.
Trump trying to pass off a WordPress blog as a new social media network reminds me of that time in my childhood when I took a massive cordless phone into the car to pretend I had a car phone. 🤣🤣🤣

"It's just going to be another blog on the internet… it's really just very sad and pathetic," says @ChaiKomanduri on Trump's new online platform

It’s only a matter of time before Trump catches wind that he’s being mocked for pretending to invent another thing that’s existed forever and feel extra sad he can’t rage tweet about it anymore. But then he’ll remember that at least he can blog about it.
excited to check out the new blog of famous wordsmith, Donald Trump.
