I’ll get right to it.
Trump has millions of fake Twitter followers. This should not come as a surprise to anyone who knows anything about the man. Twitter audited the president’s account and came up with 18 million fake accounts.
Status People, another site that rates the authenticity of Twitter followers, found that 5 percent of Trump’s followers are fake and another 91 percent are inactive.
That Trump seemingly has more fake followers than real ones can be attributed to the existence of bots, an umbrella term referring to accounts with no profile picture and no tweets.
Here’s a dirty little secret about twitter; you can buy followers. Really.
A New York Times article by Nick Bilton describes the social media bot industry as a “giant pyramid scheme” often used by big-name brands, A-list celebrities and regular people seeking a “social media ego boost.”
Ego boost. Sound familiar? Donny has always needed recognition. The whole drama of how many people attended his inauguration stems from his need to be loved. In his world, he’s always winning.
We must not forget about Trump’s beleaguered fraud commission searching for fake votes for Hillary Clinton and trying to invade state’s rights. Fact’s are merely something to be mauled for his own purposes.
Fair warning. Don’t bother showing Trump this article or the numerous other ones on the subject, because you know what he’ll say,
” More fake news…”
As It Stands, life is full of little ironies.
By now I think the world has figured out that Trump is not a Republican. I think that’s safe to say, especially when you consider how he’s been treating Congressional Republicans lately like a bunch of stubborn children.
The way it works is if the Republicans pass a repeal and replace Obamacare, Trump will take credit. His past history has proven this is one of his favorite tricks. If Obamacare stands, then Trump will blame Congress, the Democrats, and anyone else he can think of, and completely disown it. He’s already said as much.
But here’s the thing; look back at Trump’s history where he supported Democrats and the Clinton’s. He once said that if he ever ran for president he would do so as a Republican because their dumb enough to believe anything.
In other words, Trump’s cons starting with the Birther myth that found fertile ground with Conservatives.
I think it’s obvious Trump’s core values are different from the Republican Party’s values. The GOP stands for a lot of good things. Trump, bluntly put, doesn’t stand for anything other than making business deals for himself and his corrupt family. Think Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
The big question is how long will GOP congressmen/women allow themselves to be bullied by a guy they have nothing in common with?
As for Trump and his tantrums, we are witnesses to the destruction of every American value we were once so proud of. The Republican Party was just a stepping stone to power for Trump, and now he’s showing his disdain for the people who backed him.
As It Stands, there’s not a lot we can do about Trump’s rampages on twitter, and in person, other than to ignore him. Maybe he’ll go away.
