it probably will be but he isn't wasting his own money, this is a publicly traded company, DWACU on the Nasdaq and Trump is Chairman.

If the Market buys in. My Pillow Guy will probably lose everything by controlling all the Shares in circulation or something.

DWACU The market will short it into oblivion and it will fail, they will never have to cover, and therefore pocket the proceeds tax free. That's a nice slap in the face for a professional grifter.

I’m sure this one will be every bit as successful as his last one.

Trump fundamentally doesn’t understand social media and neither do any of these idiots trying to make alternative platforms. What conservatives like about social media is fighting liberals on it. If you make a site that only appeals to conservatives there’s no liberals to fight and therefore no fun.

Exactly. Ying needs Yang. They should ask Future PLC for some help. When a provocateur doesn't appear on their own make one up. It drives the clicks.

A tremendous irony of Truth Social: it's billed as a free speech haven, but parody accounts have been banned... and it's against the terms of service to criticize the service. In other words, it's the Trumpist definition of free speech: you can say what you want, but only as long as you praise Dear Leader Trump.

Combine that with the pre-launch breach and crash... yeah, this is probably going to make Gab or Parler seem like a resounding success.

ROFL! - "Truth" - Trump calling his site "Truth anything" is just him being his usual troll. Hey .... Why not be on the up and up and call it "Lies" - It’s not like that will deter any likely subscribers. I assume he wanted to call it “Pravda”, but Putin sued him over trademark infringement.

Predictably enough, this "TRUTH" (lol) Social in its TOS prohibits using all-caps and making fun of Loser Donald isn’t even supposed to launch until next year, but the signup page is already live, and a pair of merry pranksters have claimed the accounts “donaldjtrump” and “mikepence”. Free speech my ass.


It’s “free speech” as in “speech free of any consequences for me, but everyone else will get their asses banned if they step out of line”, in the same way that “religious freedom” means freedom for "very specific" religions.

I’m guessing this will go the same way as Parler and Frank:

Step 1) Massive technical issues;
Step 2) Massive troll invasion;
Step 3) Massive data breach; and then
Step 4) Site is overwhelmed by scammers, spammers and porn.

Actually We’ll need to add steps 1a, 2a, 3a, and 4a, which are all just “Trump steals more money from old and gullible people.”

Loser Donald's very own "Free Speech Money Farm".

it's suppose to be about free speech but you can not disparage the site or those who run it.

I hope the website gets hacked and all donations go to worthy causes that would cause a backlash if he tries to fight to get the money back

Problem with Trump and his chronic habit for "fighting back" against any media source that embarrasses and humiliates him by describing in factual detail what he does and say is that all he has to fight back with are lies, more lies and even more lies in order to double/triple down on them.

In effect he wants what every totalitarian dictator wants: the ability to freely lie his ass off and on penalty of torture and death, have those lies become the truth with no other source of viable factual information being present to call all of it out.

The kicker? He's duped over 70+ million "conservatives" (lol) into believing that his ability to lie without restraint or regard is what makes him their best hope for taking back the White House.

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/10/21/trump-linked-spac-shares-soar-more-than-40percent-on-news-of-social-media-deal.html

DWAC shares are up 275% today. Someone made a killing today. The trading volume on DWAC warrants was extremely high yesterday. Insider trading high. So someone bought huge number of warrants on DWAC during the trading day yesterday knowing this SPAC merger news was about to break. 100% illegal but of course the SEC is going to turn blind eye. SEC is disgusting and useless organization. Might as well dissolve it as it just wastes taxpayer dollars and only protects the short sellers and the corrupt.

Extremely smart move by Trump and his associates to cash in on this free money SPAC. They're going to make billions on this deal and Trump will now be legitimate billionaire because of this SPAC. This company will fail but not before Trump and his friends pocket millions leaving retail holding the bag. Well done.
