Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, May 19, 2022

Bess Levin: Like a crazy old man who spends his days shouting at an empty blender and thinks the government is performing mind control on people through their microwaves, Donald Trump apparently believes that the reason his newly formed social media company, Truth Social, is not a runaway success is because Google has internally decided to sabotage him.

Awww... still playing the victim. Is that all Republicans know how to do nowadays?

Google is 23 years old and thus way too old for Trump's tastes.

Trump's company doesn't release an app for the biggest mobile platform in the world and he blames google for it.
Typical of Trump. Instead of recognizing that most people aren't interested in hearing him spew his ignorance and hate he blames his failures on others who are actually successful.

I will say this in Trump's defense. Google does have a long history of killing off social media/communication platforms. Just look at what they did to Google Dodgeball, Google Wave, Google Answers, Google Schemer, Google Video, Google Orkut, Google Currents, Google Buzz, Google Allo, Google Hangouts, Google Spaces, Google+, etc.

Well, everyone pretty much knows that those managing Google lean left and easy to confirm by what coms up on the first page when asking question about conservatives.

Also WiKi has a left leaning bias so any pertinent data must be taken with a grain of slat.

You mean people with advanced degrees and education don't support the climate change denial party who attempted a fascist coup?

What a scandal.

Failing to believe the election was stolen and that dewormer cures covid does not equal a left leaning bias.

For the past 5 or so years, probably longer, it seems that truth has a left-leaning bias.

Ever wonder why?

It does to them.

You can't use facts on these people. They're immune. They operate purely on feelings and victim mentality.

"Trump Thinks Google is Trying to F Him" is a victim mentality. One echoed by the right-wingers in this thread.

Serious question for you. Trump's complaint is that there is no Truth Social app for Android and that Google is to blame. Consider the following and then tell me if you think that Trump's complaint is valid?

Truth Social has not submitted an app to Google for inclusion in the Google Play store. There is no evidence that Truth Social has even started developing an Android app. They haven't signed up beta testers. They haven't set up pre-registration. They haven't posted job listings for Android app developers. The only indication from them that they are even thinking about Android is a message on their site that has been there for months that says an android app is "coming soon". (That happens to be the same thing that Trump has said for years about his tax returns, his infrastructure plan and his healthcare plan. Still haven't seen any of those either.)

The reason for that is likely because Mastodon, the open source social media project that Truth runs on, only just an Android client this past month. In order to release their own app, Truth would have had to have been developing one themselves. That would be impressive from a company that hasn't demonstrated they've developed anything other than an logo at this point. Because Mastodon is open-source Truth is supposed to publish any code based on Mastodon that they develop be published. Last I checked the only thing they have published was a barebones version of existing Mastodon code.

Wait just a minute. Are you saying that the same guy who builds his hotels cheap by ripping off contractors, then uses same hotels to launder money and avoid taxes, then screams "witch hunt" when he's investigated; is the same guy who is claiming to start an app, but hasn't really started the app, and is crying that he's being sabotaged by a platform to which he hasn't submitted said undeveloped app? Could he be trying to string along impatient investors?

Trump, and apparently Nunes, thought people would flock to "Truth Social" without having to do anything. No marketing, no features or events. No brand. Nothing. Just Trump complaining.

I find it hilarious because Trump is supposed to be some kind of marketing genius. Nunes is an idiot who got the job for kissing Trump's ass. Is he in anyway qualified for CEO of a tech startup?

Soon, they'll realize "Truth" is a dead venture, blame/fire Nunes, and grift every last penny they can before it collapses. At the expense of his supporters, of course.

This is going to be more fun to watch than a Rudy press conference!

Gee MSGT ... thanks for reminding us what everyone already knows ... that facts have liberal bias.

But I am pretty sure that Trumpy does not THINK before he speaks. I don't even believe his mouth is even connected to his brain. His mouth just babbles on and then later on his brain tries to make up some story to try and justify what his mouth just said.

In the book "Stolen Focus" by Johann Hari there is a chapter that describes how the best and brightest Silicon Valley engineers are trained at Stanford to deploy behavioral influencing techniques in their code. In an interview with one of the engineers, the code-writer analogizes it to a small number of people sitting in a room pulling the levers and pressing the dials that control what billions of people see and influencing how they think every day. We saw a Silicon Valley elitist from Twitter earlier this week plainly saying as much to an undercover Project Veritas operative. I loathe Trump, but he is probably right about this.

Well ya know, he once said he could 'grab em by the Pu--- cause they'd let you if you were rich and famous. Guess Google took his advice.
