Mockery ensues after Trump aide reveals he killed his blog over low readership

Donald Trump’s solution to his banishment from social media in the wake of the January 6th insurrection attempt has turned out to be as huge a failure as his presidency was.

From the Desk of Donald J. Trump was the name of the blog on Trump’s website that featured his comments on the political happenings of the day and was laden primarily with the same types of lies and mistruths as anything he ever posted to Twitter, except unconstrained by any of that platform’s character limits.

The Washington Post reports that Jason Miller, the former president’s spokesperson, announced that the blog page would be permanently shuttered, “will not be returning,” and that its previous posts have been deleted from the website.

“It was just auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on,” Miller said. “Hoping to have more information on the broader efforts soon, but I do not have a precise awareness of timing.”

An anonymous advisor to the ex-president said that Trump was upset that his characterization of the blog as a new “platform” on the level of Twitter and Facebook was roundly mocked and that the blog failed to ever attract any significant readership.

The decision to admit failure is uncharacteristic of Trump who in his extreme narcissism rarely admits to possessing any faults whatsoever.

As the Twitterverse speculated that the decision to shutter the blog page may be a stepping stone to an announcement that Trump will be joining a new social media platform, Miller jumped in to feed the flames of that rumor.

As the news of the blog’s failure spread, schadenfreude was busting out all over social media.

Trump may not like being mocked, but the very public failure of his attempt to replicate the social media success of his Twitter feed makes him an irresistible target for his legion of opponents.

It likely won’t be any better once he launches whatever new platform he next attempts to use as a propaganda avenue.

Perhaps he should simply accept that he is as out of fashion and out of public consciousness as designer clothes from 2016.

It’s time to relegate him to the consignment shop.
