I'm surprised he bothered translating the name into English and didn't just call it Pravda.

Some of those may not be able to be trademarked.
But they are also phrases normal people wouldn't use, so there's that.

"The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy: they are deliberate exercises in doublethink."

We were warned.

It took awhile, but now he realizes he doesn't need to lift a finger. (Perhaps a  rally now and again, to ripen the plums of course. We all know he loves talking at people) Just ask for donations, and the losers and suckers will empty their wallets.

During the 2016 election it was hinted that he wished to create *****TV after he lost. He didn't. (spoilers)
Considering he's pretty much 'persona non grata' with any network distributor these days. Interwebs was the only choice.
He's basically an online evangelical preacher at this point.

'Send me money to prove you love America!'

The app will likely be a cross between Tik Tok and Twitter.
He certainly enjoys mugging for the camera,
....

The Truth yada yada trademark attempts are scary dangerous though. He still has significant support on the republican side. And dumbf*cks are gonna dumbf*ck...

I think we can all agree that, by Trump's definitions, we want him to live forever in utter and perfect health and happiness.

Like his takeover of the term "fake news", this is intentional, though I wouldn't say consciously so because the man's a first class dumbass.

He is trying to bend reality to his will. That is why he is using truth so much. In a narcissists mind, he can't lose, so now he has to go and create an alternate reality where whatever he says is the truth. Newsflash: Reality doesn't work like that. You lost. Get over it.

He is trying to bend reality to his will... Reality doesn't work like that.

Sometimes, when a person has enough money, no shame, and a violent mob following behind him, reality can be reconfigured into terrifying, new shapes.

Trump will remain an existential threat to your country until he is dead.

You're aiming way too low. Alternative facts are just the beginning. Entire narratives are about to be retruthed. Forget the hours of video evidence, the corroboration, the courtroom testimony and all the other evidence. Now there is only retruth.

Remember how Americans used to tell their children the apocryphal tale of how George Washington chopped down the cherry tree and confessed to his dad because he never told a lie, and that if a kid wanted to grow up to be president, they should emulate George Washington's honesty?

How are Republicans going to raise their children?

"Son, if you want to grow up to be President like Donald Trump, you are going to have to learn how to lie. A lot. Donald Trump told 30,573 lies during his four years in office, which averages out to 21 lies a day, every day. When he had a slow day and only told a dozen lies, he would come back strong on subsequent days and make up the difference."

"If you really want to become president, you are going to have to become a notorious philanderer and serial adulterer and pay hush money to the porn star you screwed while your wife was home pregnant."

Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

Sometimes I don't like the world we live in.

Reality, indeed, does work like that.

If you disagree, I will explain how.

Someone posted a clip the other day of Jordan Klepper meeting a Q-nut at a Trump rally. The Q guy was insistent that Trump was still President and Commander in Chief running everything. Klepper said "oh, so that makes the Afghanistan withdrawal all Trump's fault?" and the Q guy's head exploded.

That's the problem with retruthing in a nutshell. If you retruth two related truths then you wind up with a massive conflict. I recently read Bill Bryson's silly discussion about the illogic he identified as a kid which was inherent in Bizarro World from the old Superman comics. Now Trump is trying to get this to play out in the real world and only the most gormless of idiots will be able to make sense of it.

Nicki Minaj's Cousin's Friend's Swollen Testicle: I expect it'll go like all the others: all liberal posters will be banned, and with no-one to troll or trigger, it'll wither and die of boredom.


Well, the good news in that front is that if reports are true, the trump social media platform is based (completely copied) on mastodon.  You can't be banned since it is decentralized.  Individuals can block you, but you can't be banned.  And you can set up your own node and block people you don't want to see.  No mega corp telling you who you can or can't follow or chat with.

I'm glad Trump wants his name to be associated with truth. I wish he'd gone about it by actually, you know, telling the truth.

It's not just Trump.  In fact I expect that what drew Trump to the GQP was largely their embrace of reality being shaped by their own manipulations.  One of the core GQP strategies today is that they shape, and recognize only 'realities' of their own design.  This would have an irresistable draw for Trump.
