I am not going on Twitter," he said. "I am going to stay on Truth."

Here's the thing: Nobody really believes him


Someone doesn't believe everything Trump says? Someday you're going to have to learn to trust people and not be so cynical of everyone. Jeez.

If the GOP leadership thinks he's so toxic, which he of course is, why not find someone better for your Republican sheep to worship?
 
2022-04-26 12:28:17 PM  
....oh and of course he'll come back to Twitter if un-banned.
 
2022-04-26 12:29:43 PM  
Cowards.
 
2022-04-26 12:39:41 PM  
...In fact, then-Speaker PAUL RYAN was so sick of journalists peppering him with questions about Trump's latest incendiary utterance that he took to denying he'd ever seen them and couldn't comment. "I haven't seen the tweet!" he'd say, dodging. We'd all roll our eyes.

Then chase them down the hall, read the tweet aloud, and film them as they either agree with the mania, or disagree with their golden calf, or run away cowardly.  No matter what it's not a good look.
 
2022-04-26 12:55:07 PM  
On Monday night, in a series of calls and texts with several top GOP insiders, every single one of them told us that they hoped the former president stays the hell away from Twitter, lest he sink their chances at flipping the House and Senate. Some of his allies even think that a return to his old Twitter habits could damage his own brand ahead of a possible third presidential bid in 2024.

Oh, well then.

Please proceed.

There is no one left to pay for the bot army it takes to boost the relevancy of TFG tweets beyond the realm of "yelling at clouds" fans. Getting banned while he was at the top of his game gives Trump the perfect wedge to now claim "Twitter is over" and he even gets to STIGGINIT to Egon Mush in the process.

Twitter, and by Twitter I mean Elon, better have some very good insurance.

Wow. Such brave. So independence.

Cowardice.

And they're really into it.

Just here to mention that I hope Elon buying Twitter, kills Twitter.

If TFG gets back on Twitter it might be the greatest contribution Musk ever makes.

It would be awesome to see the cannibalism resume in that party and watch them get killed in the midterms because of it.
 
2022-04-26 1:51:45 PM  
Go for it. Let him back on.  4chan version 2.0 coming up.
 
2022-04-26 1:52:24 PM  
GOP people expressed they didn't want trump on twitter thus ensuring trump will be back on twitter because no one tells trump whats good for him!
 
2022-04-26 1:52:31 PM  
Doesn't make any sense, everyone is moving to Truth Social.
 
2022-04-26 1:52:57 PM  
We get it. He's embarrassing. We hate him, too, but at least we voted against him.

Trump hijacked an existing Republican hate machine and turned all the knobs to 11. He didn't create the machine, you guys did. Your complaints aren't helpful, they are just annoying.

Former President Donald Trump said on Monday he wouldn't rejoin Twitter. But Republicans we spoke with don't believe him.

Wait!  Are they saying that Trump would just stand up there and lie?
 
2022-04-26 1:54:39 PM  
When Trump gets back on Twitter, the conversation will revert to how he's destroyed more windmills than Elton John, instead of rolling back civil rights, voting rights, and abortion rights.
 
2022-04-26 1:54:53 PM  
If you're running a company or are a body part in/on a woman, don't let the conservatives anywhere near you.  Their finite state machine just cycles back and forth between fark and kill .

I really hope that's how it plays out.  I was pissed when they announced Musk bought Twitter, virtually ensuring that every toxic republican, anti-vax/anti-science, and neo-nazi can run amok without fear of a ban.

But if Trump gets back on and tanks the midterms for the republicans?  I'd call that a win.
 
2022-04-26 1:57:09 PM  
It's really a miracle the site has survived now that they have to pick a different person to get mad at every day.
I have a feeling reporters will rejoice if he is unbanned. They will no longer have to make phone calls or go outside, just sit on the toilet, look at their phone, hit the little recycle button and call that news.

If you don't use twitter you don't have to read whatever drivel he's spewing.

rudemix: GOP people expressed they didn't want trump on twitter thus ensuring trump will be back on twitter because no one tells trump whats good for him!


Then again, Trump's status as a Twitter-er is going to be in the hands of someone who's even richer than Trump claims to be. Quite the conundrum.

He hasbn't even BEEN on Truth, except a "coming soon" post from the beginning.

He really only wants to be on Twatter. And yeah, I am all for it. Between this story, and the one yesterday (or this weekend) about the life and death of that Bannination website, this would bring about the collapse of that shiatty waste of resources.

It is like Gray's Anatomy. I don't like the show and don't watch it, yet since my wife does I am forced to know about all the drama too.

I almost expected them to file to change the name after that. He cannot be wrong, the stupid world is wrong.

I don't use Twitter but I use Fark so I kind of do. Besides, it's not just about my person distaste. The GOP might be worried Trump might hurt them if he comes back but he can also rile up his base more than they're already riled.
 
2022-04-26 2:03:41 PM  
They sure are assuming that they'll flip the house.
 
2022-04-26 2:04:21 PM  
No they haven't.

Republicans still cover for TFG's bullshiat, else they'd be front and center of the investigations.

Don't worry, they will read his tweets out loud on TV news and embed them in online newspaper articles

Sure, until he tweets, "The Storm is upon us. Once I'm re-elected I'll pardon anyone who kills a registered Democrat."

No.
They covet and fear his voting bloc, plain and simple. They'll do whatever behind the scenes, but don't ask them to do anything publicly against that farking douchebag because his disciples will lose their farking minds over the slightest indignity towards him.

Maybe you guys could just try keeping his balls out of your mouth for five minutes, see where THAT goes.

thealgorerhythm: Twitter, and by Twitter I mean Elon, better have some very good insurance.


For what?  Pretty sure Elon is doing this for the ego, and he and his "funding source" are willing to flush the whole thing down.  On the other hand, twitter has more or less become its own monopoly on "instant messaging to the world" and doesn't have any competition (especially with guys like Trump pretending to try).  It isn't going anywhere.

It will probably just keep on slowly losing money, and be a platform to manipulate public opinion by selectively banning trolls and bots.  The "modernized" Constitution in the archives should be pretty more clear: Billionaires are allowed to do whatever they want, especially if it involves manipulating politics.  Judge Roberts outside should have told you.

Yeah, he must have at least a hundred people on "the list" and bound for his divine retribution.  Expect a 2-day fusillade of insults, verifiable as his own by the misspellings, poor punctuation and non sequitur laden in his elementary school level vocabulary.

Came in to point this out. Any presence on Twitter now will pale in comparison to the presence he had at his peak. Rejoining Twitter would expose him, but without Twitter I doubt he will be able to dominate the GOP field against guys like DeSantis; who are just as sleazy and a lot smarter than Trump. Their megaphone will be just as loud.

This does actually throw a wrench into the detrumpification the RNC is slowly trying to roll out. It was supposed to build up to a near total rebuke of him... sometime around oh... mid/late september? That'd give the RNC that extra push going into nov. yet not too far away because the only thing weaker than TFG's arteries are people's memories.

If Trump incites another riot the platform is going to get sued for maintaining a nuisance along with Trump getting sued for doing it.

Sued by victims for damages
Sued by cities for law enforcement costs
Sued by rioters themselves for being defrauded (we have yet to see the lawsuits by convicted Jan 6 rioters but they are coming).

In America you may escape penal justice, but lawsuits are for everybody. See also OJ Simpson.

He doesn't need bots- every single member of the "liberal media" will immediately retweet and comment on everything he says rather than doing something stupid like, I don't know, reporting actual news.

"Tonight on MSM News: Trump tweets 'Musk Cofefe must make Truth'.  We'll have five analysts provide details for the next ten minutes, and after the break, news that Biden has established a no-fly zone over Ukraine.  We'll get Trump's Twitter take on this important development!"
 
2022-04-26 4:12:53 PM  
See, now I kinda want him to. I won't read any of that farking derp, of course, but if anonymous Republicans don't want it, that makes me want it more. You dig?
 
2022-04-26 4:19:32 PM  
I hope that fat orange farkstick does run back to Twitter. His posts are like a slow motion trainwreck into an abortion clinic dumpster fire...infinite entertainment.
