Trump, On Eve of 4th Arrest, Gets 180 Million Looks with Tucker Carlson Interview, But Just a Fraction of Likes on Twitter (X)


Donald Trump went on Twitter (X) last night for an “interview” — meaning PR stunt — with the moronic Tucker Carlson.

So far, on the social media platform, the meeting of these lesser minds has 180 million “views” — meaning looks for a couple of minutes or so.

Trump is bragging on his own social media right now that the number could get up to 300,000!

But the “likes” of the interview tell a different story — just 583K. That’s a fraction of the so called total views. And a small one. Even if the likes get up to 1 million, that’s a pretty sad response. It lags way beyond the total — and even that number doesn’t indicate who watched the conversation all the way through. Trump foments hate in the talk, and refuses to say civil war isn’t possible.

The Trump/Carlson gasbagging of each other took place while the potential GOP presidential candidates debated each other on Republican state media, er, Fox. News. It looks from the NY Post and Foxnews.com that Rupert Murdoch is going with bland, vague, hate-filled Ron DeSantis for now. The Florida dweeb governor, who’s turned his state into a cultural wasteland, gets the most attention today in Murdoch’s media.

Today at 4pm we get Trump’s mugshot after his 4th arrest on his 4th indictment. Should be quite an afternoon in Atlanta!
