When all is said and done, Donald Trump will go down as the biggest snake oil salesman in the history of the country. This is a man who rode dubious business credentials all the way to the White House.At the same time, Trump feels like he is a brilliant and powerful genius immune to criticism. He sure does love dishing it out, though. During a Sunday night rally in Alaska, Trump ripped actual billionaire Elon Musk over the electric car tycoon’s failed bid to buy Twitter.
Riffing to his people, Trump began, “Go out, by the way, while I’m here, and sign up NOW for TRUTH Social, it’s hot as a pistol. Elon is not gonna buy Twitter. Where did you hear that before?”
A few months back, Trump had predicted, “I don’t believe he’s going to buy Twitter because you have so many fake accounts, the bots, all of the different things. I think it’s going to be very interesting.”
Trump should certainly be familiar with bots. Back when he was allowed on Twitter, they heavily inflated his follower count. A study showed that up to 60% of his followers were bots. That never stopped him from bragging about the count, however.
The former President continued his attack, “You know he said the other day, ‘oh I’ve never voted for a Republican.’ I said I didn’t know that, he told me he voted for me. So he’s another bullsh*t artist.”
