Trump Claimed That He’s Been “Doing Very Limited Media” So Americans Can See How Bad Biden Is Doing: “Joe Biden Is Of No Interest To Anybody”

He's not coping very well.

Former President Donald Trump lashed out over reports that social media bans had sent him sliding into irrelevance and insisted that that wasn’t true. The twice-impeached one-term former president claims that he is staying away from the media so attention would stay on the Biden administration, which he described as a “disaster.” “Inflation, the Border Crisis, our forgotten Military, war in the Middle East, all as a result of Biden’s mistakes,” he wrote. “Our Country is being destroyed. Watch, it’s only going to get worse!”

Actually, no. The economy is opening back up, COVID-19 restrictions are being lifted as Americans are getting vaccinated. As for the Middle East, I thought Jared Kushner created world peace.

Trump ranted about the media and claimed that President Joe Biden is the irrelevant one.


“What WaPo and other members of the Fake News Media don’t report is that Joe Biden is of no interest to anybody—21 million less people watched his Joint Address to Congress than watched mine.”

The reason fewer people tuned in is that we no longer have anxiety over whether the President will lash out at world leaders, make nuclear threats, or call the press the enemy of the people. It was like watching a train wreck, but you couldn’t turn away. You just had to watch it. Bloaty McBatshit thinks it’s all about the ratings, though.

The Washington Post reported last week that Trump’s new blog attracts fewer visitors than the pet-adoption site Petfinder or the recipe site Delish, and the former president wasn’t happy with that report.

“The Washington Post also incorrectly reported about my website viewership. We have not yet launched our own social media “platform,” but even the very basic site we have to post our statements has received 36.7 million views over the past month alone, and we’re getting more traffic to our website now than in 2020, an Election year!” Trump wrote. “This number would be even greater if we were still on Twitter and Facebook, but since Big Tech has illegally banned me, tens of millions of our supporters have stopped using these platforms because they’ve become “boring” and nasty.”

Oh, boring and nasty! Trump was deplatformed after he incited the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection. The former president also touted his grip on the Republican party.

“Highly respected pollster John McLaughlin says 73% of all Republicans want Trump to run again in 2024 and Republican primary voters would support him 82%-13%,” Trump added. ‘Even the Washington Post has just reported “All Republican Roads Lead to Mar-a-Lago.”‘

Do you think it's ok Jeff Bezos doesn't pay taxes, takes a trip to space and still asks the US taxpayer for $10B?

The GOP is in disarray with a couple of unhinged QAnon believers in their ranks, MAGA Congressman Matt Gaetz is plagued with scandals, and while it’s been over seven months since Joe Biden beat Trump in both the electoral and popular vote, Republicans still can’t seem to cope with that. And Biden is Donald Trump’s President now, too. By the way, I didn’t link to Trump’s shitty blog, but all the quotes are accurate. If Trump claims he is avoiding media attention to prove what a disaster Biden is, then he wouldn’t have launched that crazy-time rant.
