It’s not a surprise that Lord Damp Nut needs a social media fix, and if he owns the platform they cannot kick his orange ass off the can, so to speak:
“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,” Trump senior adviser Jason Miller told Fox News’ “#MediaBuzz” on Sunday. “And this is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media, it’s going to completely redefine the game, and everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does.”
Miller said he was unable to provide much more in terms of details at this point, but he did reveal that Trump has been having “high-powered meetings” at Mar-a-Lago with various teams regarding the venture, and that “numerous companies” have approached Trump.
“This new platform is going to be big,” Miller said, predicting that Trump will draw “tens of millions of people.”
I’m going to call BS. It’s not just that LDN is illiterate and knows nothing about technology, but he’s also dead broke (and about to be, uh, dead broker (is too a wurd!), and the costs of developing an internet service and then scaling it to have tens of millions of users is very much NOT cheap. Also, all the Red Hats want to do is own the libs, and what fun will it be if there are no libs to own? There’s no market for another Parler (there’s not a market for Parler, even), and the GQP already “owns” Facebook. So what is the market for this thing?
Trump is not a developer of anything, really, not even real estate, and has never had an original thought in his life. He licenses his name to other peoples products.
If I were a betting man, I would wager that this is a grift. There’s going to be some fundraising and fleecing of the rubes who invest in whatever this thing is.
