Pour One Out For Trump’s Short-Lived Personal Blog

Well, that was fast.

Former President Donald Trump is permanently discontinuing his blog after it was online for less than a month.

“It was just auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on,” Trump’s senior aide Jason Miller told CNBC. Miller said he hopes to soon “have more information” about those “broader efforts,” but reportedly did not provide any additional details.  

The former president launched “From the Desk of Donald Trump” in May, months after Facebook and Twitter banned him from their platforms in the wake of the deadly U.S. Capitol riot. Though the blog was ostensibly a solution to allow the president to share unfiltered messages with supporters, after losing his millions of followers on Facebook and Twitter, “From the Desk of Donald Trump” did not attract a large audience, according to NBC News. 

The webpage for “From the Desk of Donald Trump” now displays a contact form for people interested in receiving “EXCLUSIVE updates” via email or phone. 

When the blog launched, Fox News heralded it as a “new communications platform.” At the time, Miller disputed that characterization, saying it “is not a new social media platform.”

Trump probably needed Twitter access so he could announce the new blog.

Twitter was his bread and butter.  If a tyrant can't energize his minions, he is nothing.

Well, Trump isn't particularly intelligent. I can't imagine he could write entire paragraphs for very long, which is what is needed for a blog.

Twitter was his bread and butter quarter-pounder and large fries.

 

There.  Fixed it.
