WATCH: Jimmy Kimmel Explains How Trump’s new Platform Isn’t Social at All
Donald Trump released his social media site this week, but it was widely mocked for its crude design.
During his Wednesday night monologue, Jimmy Kimmel discussed both Trump’s ban from Facebook as well as his new platform.
Beginning with Trump’s Facebook ban, Kimmel told viewers, “This has to be driving him nuts. If he wants to run for President again, he’s going to have to go door talking to voters like a Jehovah’s Witness or something. ‘Hello, my name is Donald, have you heard the bad news about Mexicans.'”
The comedian then made fun of how the website does not allow users to interact at all. He continued, “Trump calls this a platform, but it’s really just a website that he calls ‘a place to speak freely and safely.’ There’s only one problem, the site doesn’t allow any replies or comments or likes. The only person speaking freely or even at all, is him. Finally, he can speak freely and safely with himself on his new — I’m not 100 percent sure but I think he just started a blog, really, is all he did.”
Trump had been teasing his social media for months. Like all his products, though, the site has over-promised and under-delivered. It would be no surprise to see the site go away soon.
