Donald Trump deleted his blog because it was being mocked and you can probably guess what happened next
With no Twitter, Facebook or Instagram to rant on, having been suspended from all three, Donald Trump set up a personal blog, named ‘From the Desk of Donald Trump’.
It sounds far more statemsmanlike than he ever did.

Just 29 days later, his spokesperson has confirmed that the blog has been taken down, teling the Washington Post that the former president was unhappy that it had low readership and people were making fun of it.
A Trump adviser told The Washington Post that the former president shut down his blog because he didn’t like that this platform was being mocked and had so few readers. https://t.co/GQLpdikBg0

Did somebody mention snowflakes?
If he wasn’t happy that his blog was mocked, he’s not going to like what happened on Twitter when it was taken down.
Now that Trump's blog has shut down, should we refer to him going forward as "former blogger" or "failed blogger?"

I’ve had kidney stones that lasted longer than Trumps blog…and they were more bearable.

So, farewell then, Donald Trump's "From the Desk of Donald Trump" blog.
It lasted for fewer days than the number that you played golf during your first few months in office.
And it was just as shit.
Which seems poetic.

About as many people read his blog as showed up at his inaugural. #TrumpBlog

Two reasons why Trump's blog didn't succeed:
Trump doesn't have the ability to write more than 280 characters at a time.
Trump supporters don't have the ability to read more than 280 characters at a time.

Liza Minnelli has outlived Donald Trump's blog — “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” — where he shared false statements after social media companies banned him.

Trump just called me asking if I’d lip sync him again, it was so sad

When Anthony Scaramucci can mock something’s lack of longevity, you know things have hit rock bottom.
Trump’s blog couldn’t make it to 3 Scaramucci’s. Too much work. He is gone. FOREVER
