    Actually if he want's to be accurate, it should be called "How to lie and get away with it" because that's all he really knows how to do. "Bone spurs" is a congenital liar among other things. I'll bet you if "Bone Spurs" had an interest, ownership or money investments in big tech, we wouldn't be having this discussion.

    Wow, that's an even more nonsensical thing of Trump to do than if Scott brand toilet paper started calling itself the toughest strongest toilet paper on the market.

    Trump and truth are not associated, have never been associated, and never will be associated.

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump...rk-has-already-banned-any-criticism-of-itself

    Truth Social has already published a long list of prohibited activities—including a clause that states that users must not “disparage, tarnish, or otherwise harm, in our opinion, us and/or the Site.” Users are also told they must not “annoy” any of the site’s employees.

    So you're not allowed to criticize the site, and you're not allowed to critisize or "annoy" the sites employees, which includes Trump.

    Talk about Communist-style censorship!!!

    Sounds like he is preemptively 'cancelling' users.

    My advice would be not to use the site. Why annoy yourself?

    Color me shocked. Not shocked at all.

    The funniest part is he pushed DeSantis into signing a law that social media sites are not allowed to ban political candidates.

    And, countdown to when an Orange Jesus worshipper shows up to justify *THIS* action while having hissy fits on the other threads about Twitter and FaceBook being so evil and unfair.

    That's the whole problem in a nutshell. Orange Jesus wants to dictate the rules for everybody else but he doesn't want any rules applied to himself.

    These are the reactions you get from lefties when social media bans their bullshit instead of allowing their antics and fake news. What comes around, goes around. So much for the "it's a private site, they can do whatever they want" chant out of the left. Hypocrisy at its finest.

    I don't think @Ronstar was thinking about himself when he opened this thread. But more about exposing Trump's leadership style.

    What you see regarding that forum is what Trump was seeking for the whole country. He didn't even bother trying to hide this fact.

    Please don't use those words together. I'm still traumatized by his first term.

    Wait. I retract part of my statement. I am actually shocked that he named the site "Truth Social" but people aren't allowed to post the truth about him, his blind followers and brown nosers? Shouldn't it be "Alternative Truth Social"? I'm almost certain he can't even say the word "truth" without his skin sizzling.

    One wouldn't expect that to bother somebody who uses their avatar to glorify a Nazi symbol.

    Orange Jesus is the one being hypocritical. He doesn't want to follow other social media sites' TOS but he wants to dictate the rules on his own site (and he has that right - JUST LIKE Twitter, FaceBook and sites owned and operated by other people have that right).

    Do you all even bother to listen to your thoughts in your head before you post?

    Of course not. The part I don't understand is why his diehard brown noser cult members don't think there is anything the least bit wrong with him leaving a trail of bodies in his wake relative to the number of people he's fired for telling the truth. They all just want to stay stuck in their echo chamber clutching their pearls and crying in their nappies about the "injustice" of it all (that somebody got fired for not doing his job). Who knew you could not do your job and stay employed? I'm certain that's not the way that works.

    How can a trumper look at this and not wonder if he made a mistake?

    Twitter allows pedophiles and ISIS. But bans Trump.

    Yes. When they kicked Trump there were pro pedo threads and ISIS threads.

    That's craziness. I don't bother with any of those social media sites and I'll add that to the long list of reasons why. Yuck.

    Probably more along the line of if you do anymore than throw out adhoms hit the road. Gee pretty much standard fare for most political. By try challenging any if the more deeply held beliefs at the DU site and see how long you get to post.

    I can't wait. I will be on there to provide "alternative facts". I assume it will be open to the general public. I want to let them know how much I appreciate the 5-10 emails I get a day telling me that I'm not a patriot if I don't donate money to the Trump organization.
    Should be a lot of fun. I wonder how long it will take to start censoring comments.

    olololol

    It figures that Trump's PRAVDA Social would not allow tRump to be criticized in any way. Reminds me of Xi banning Winnie the Pooh images. It also serves as one more warning that Trump is a tyrant and would become dictator if he could. He was trying it before but kept running into institutional guardrails. He did consistently try to take them out, but failed enough at it that he wasn't able to steal the 2020 election and remain in power illegitimately. That's because he is as competent a dictator as he was at managing casinos..

    You're not thinking like a cultist. To them, Trump is basically the only honest person in politics.
