    And jails/prisons are notoriously dangerous. This would mean they would be allowed to use force against prisoners that would attempt to attack Trump(some prisoners are literally just that insane) that even the guards are not allowed to do outside of specific things. This is why it is an issue to put him in a normal jail/prison. He will get special treatment unless he actively loses said security detail. Either he will be put on special house arrest(meaning it would like prison where no outside contact and all communications are monitored) or he will be housed in a military type setup where the SS can be stationed.

    Outside of a SuperMax type prison(where everyone is in solitary confinement from day 1), I personally do not see him getting sent to any prison. And for, at least this type of crime, that won't happen as a SuperMax prison is literally for specific types of crimes.
    Looking into it very briefly, I don't know how much "limitation" of Trump's access to social media/the news/whomever we'd actually get with him imprisoned. From what I can tell, there's nothing really legally baring prisoners from contact with the outside world other than the mere fact that they're in prison and don't have direct access to people on the outside and cell phones are banned. And house arrest is even more lenient than that.

    Or, President Biden could always take legal advice from <checks notes> former President and leader of the Republican Party Donald Trump, and order Trump summarily executed. Perhaps that would convince Congress and the States (or even the courts) to usefully weigh in on whether or not they really want to keep letting Presidents commit crimes.

    On a less hyperbolic level, the SS isn't required to be some sort of fantasy medieval bodyguard. The law just says they're "authorized to protect" former Presidents. They can sweep Supermax in Colorado, decide that it's secure, keep a rotating team at a nearby hotel in case he needs to travel (for court appearance or medical needs) and call it good.

    Truth Social keeps shrinking despite the Trump trial and looming election

    Truth Social’s average number of daily active US users on iOS and Android dropped by 19% year over year in April to about 113,000, according to data shared exclusively with CNN from Similarweb, a data intelligence company.


    Compare to others social media.

    According to Similarweb, the average number of daily active US users on iOS and Android fell 11% year over year to 34.2 million at X, the Elon Musk-owned platform formerly known as Twitter. This metric was up slightly (0.4%) on a month-over-month basis.

    Threads, the Instagram app owned by Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta, grew its daily active US users by 5% month over month to 35 million. Reddit, which also went public earlier this year, experienced a 17% year-over-year jump in users and a 1% monthly gain to 31.4 million.

    At Rumble, the video-based social media platform popular with conservatives, the average number of daily active users fell 17% year over year and was little changed on a monthly basis, according to Similarweb.

    The good news for Truth Social is it didn’t lose users nearly as rapidly as Gettr. Similarweb said Gettr, a pro-Trump social media platform, has lost 72% of its average daily users on iOS and Android over the past year.


    Elon Musk's X is partially to blame.

    One problem for Truth Social is that since Musk took over X, that platform has worked to gain a following from the same users Truth Social is fighting for those concerned about alleged censorship at traditional tech companies.

    I'm less worried about he says he'll do than about what he hasn't said yet.
    Language barrier: I meant to say he told us already he'd be a dictator. And wish you good luck with him only being one for one day only.

    There's a cozy little place in Cuba the US owns, lots of armed guards there to boot.
    SS members on his punishment detail get 3 month rotations in Cuba.
    Trying to break him out of there would be an international incident of his own creating asking his "friends" to free him and then that WW3 we were promised if HITLERY KKKLITON was elected.

    Are there any lighthouses left in New York? Maybe some secluded small island with nothing but rocks around. It could be called Trump Tower.

    They could just lock him up on a military base.
    Human progress isn't measured by industry. It's measured by the value you place on a life.

    Rudy Giuliani fantasizes about a more racist "SNL" in bizarre rant

    "Holy shit, they invited him on?"

    Fuck, no. This was his podcast nobody listens to.

    During a recent episode of Rudy Giuliani's podcast, "America’s Mayor Live," the former New York City mayor and Trump associate went on a tirade, decrying "Saturday Night Live" for turning away from “suggestively racist” humor.

    In the episode, which aired on Tuesday, Giuliani alleges that "SNL" “got intimidated of saying anything that might be suggestively racist,” which, he says, is racist “in itself.”

    Giuliani goes on to express his wish for comics to have thrown more racist humor at former President Barack Obama, saying, “If you’re not going to make fun of a Black president, well, then you’re a racist, aren’t you?
    "He does know SNL made plenty of jokes about Obama? Just, you know, not racist ones?"

    I doubt it.

    The lawyer and former U.S. Attorney, who faces disbarment, also brought up "SNL" writer Colin Jost’s set at the White House correspondents’ dinner, struggling to get his name right.

    “Colin Posti? What was his name? Colin Kosti? Coast-y? Coastin? (Yost) Yost Colin! Was that his name?” he said. A producer off-camera eventually fed him “Colin Yost,” still wrong.

    Giuliani, facing charges and co-conspirator labels in several plots to overturn the 2020 election, also described the brown and orange jacket he was wearing as “Ukrainian colors,” though their flag is blue and yellow. He then went on to insult the Ukrainian government.

    “I’m in favor of the Ukrainian people. I just think it’s run by crooks. Like, don’t get insulted if you’re Ukrainian,” Giuliani said.
    "Didn't Giuliani--"

    Don't bring logic or loyalty into a Team Trump discussion.

    Then he went back to saying everyone who isn't Trump is a criminal for pointing out Trump's many crimes.

    Calling that fake until the diapers are on Trump's actual merch page. This seems too out of the blue to be anything other than satire.

    It's a 3rd party seller, but a lot of people are now wearing them.

    I see Trump and the Cult are trying to get the fetishist vote now. First diapers...and then eventually handcuffs if we're lucky.

    They tried back when they were going with the "Joe is senile to the point Kamala is 'weekend at bernie's'ing him around."

    Which died down cause people kept pointing out that means either Kamala is a good president or the GOP is getting played by a senile old man.

    And on.the subject of jailing him ( I know I know, probably won't happen cause 'merica)

    But Levinworth Barracks are an option. Civilians that are "a threat to national security" can be incarcerated there.

    "Law and Order", lots of places have had that, Russia, North Korea, Saddam's Iraq.
    Laws can be made to enforce order of cruelty and brutality.
    Equality and Justice, that is how you have peace and a society that benefits all.
