Twitter Can’t Stop Laughing After a Humiliated Trump Shuts Down His Failure of a Blog After a Month

Well, it was fun while it lasted.

The “blog” of former president (the joy I get writing that will never cease) Donald Trump has been permanently shut down, according to a senior aide, and the page has been permanently scrubbed from his website.

Trump used the blog, “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,” to share statements after larger social media companies banned him from their platforms. Now, a little less than a month after going live, the page has been erased and “will not be returning,” Trump’s senior aide Jason Miller told CNBC.

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

Existing links to the page now redirect to a sign up for “exclusive updates from Donald J. Trump.”

But many on Twitter found the following when checking in to see what statements Trump released today:

Miller tweeted last month that the blog “is a great resource to find Trump’s latest statements and highlights … but this is not a new social media platform.” Well, obviously.

It was also a place where Trump just released Twitter-like complaints and grievances.

Facebook and Twitter both banned Trump from their social media sites in January after the siege at the Capitol. Trump repeatedly used his accounts, on which he had tens of millions of followers, to push false claims of election fraud and declare that the election was stolen from him. And when he had the opportunity to stop the siege, he took his sweet time.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
