Devin Nunes started off off the job of president of Truth Social, the still-new Trump Media & Technology Group, and the former president's attempt to clone social. That endeavor, though, has. By optimism, Nunes is still striving to take the job as a secret win.
After retaliating rumours that Truth Social was somehow "beating Twitter," he was back with a more unconvincing tone. Even host Maria Bartiromo, herself no stranger to, ruthlessly grilled him over his unusual claims. While discussing Elon Musk buying $73.1 million, which gives the controversial entrepreneur a 9.1% share in the company, Bartiromo gave Nunes a second chance, but he failed again.
Devin Nunes is back: "Twitter is a press release wire, it's a place where celebrities go and publish a press release.... And as you know, compared to what we're doing at Truth, where we're building a community, we're not a place for celebrities to post press releases, I mean, you can."

"What is Twitter? Most Americans don't use Twitter," Nunes said, which is likely not a great way to begin a conclusive argument. "Twitter is a press release wire, and it's a place where celebrities go and publish a press release. "This is nothing more than that."
Nunes wondered why Musk would invest in arguably the world's most popular social media platform when he might invest in a business.
So I dont know why youd want to invest that much unless you have a good idea for it, Nunes said. You know, compared to what we're doing at Truth, where we're building a community, we're not a place for celebrities to put press releases I mean, you can.
He then convinced Musk to use Truth Social, saying, "more than welcome," to leave, implying that he was "allowed to come on free of charge" instead of, you know, giving them a small portion of his unimaginable wealth, which it might probably use right now. He then reminded people, a little desperately, that the Truth Social app is waiting to be downloaded, while unwittingly reminding them that it is still only available on iPhones.
Will Nunes' plea to Musk be successful? Will Truth Social complete yet another disappointing Trump product, including steaks, his, his, his, and his, etc.?
