Trump’s final submit on Fb, which now has 700K+ feedback, has turn into a bizarre web memorial the place his followers and critics nonetheless converge to argue and troll — At first look, Donald Trump’s Fb web page looks as if it has been useless for months. — The previous president’s final submit.
The strange internet memorial that Trump’s zombie Facebook page has become as a result of Trump’s Facebook “death”
The Facebook page of Donald Trump appears to have been dead for months at first glance.
The last post that was published by the former president was dated at 3:14 p.m. on the morning of January 6, 2021, the afternoon of the Capitol riots, as he called for “everyone in the U.S. After posting that message, Facebook — as well as many other social networks — banned him indefinitely for inciting the riots, and so it became a time capsule of those last chaotic days of his presidency. Not long after he posted that message, Facebook — along with many other social networks — banned him for inciting the riots.
The story does not end there, however. The comments below that last post is now a vibrant feeding ground where Trump’s fans and critics still converge to argue, troll and pay homage, like a whale carcass that sinks to the ocean floor and generates entire ecosystems in the shadow of its slowly decomposing husk. They are still coming together to argue, troll and pay homage months after that last post.
As you might be aware, I don’t think you’ve seen some of the comments in the past couple of weeks, but I wanted to make you aware, Mr. President, that We the People miss you and love you,” Cyndi Lane wrote in her comment on April 14 – 98 days after Trump wrote the post in which she was responding. It is time to hurry up or should I say, hurry up until 2024!
In spite of the fact that she knew Facebook banned Trump, Lane, 54, has been voting Republican since the Reagan era. After seeing a news article that prompted her to check back in on the account, she left her comment in spite of the fact that she knew Facebook banned Trump.
There was a part of me that was hoping that, maybe, someone he knows or works with would show him … that we miss him. It almost makes me cry thinking about it. I feel like our country is in a mess, and I do not see it getting any better any time soon.”
As a result, Trump may still eventually be allowed to return to the page: After Facebook enacted the initial ban, it gave the Oversight Board the chance to decide whether or not to allow Trump to return.
Until that decision has been made, Trump’s page remains effectively open to everyone in the world (including Trump’s ally Roger Stone and others who have been permanently banned from the page), except for Trump himself (along with Roger Stone and others who have been permanently banned from the page). So now, because there aren’t any new posts for #MAGA conservatives and #Resistance liberals to argue over, they are stuck commenting on that last presidential update that was made on January 6, as opposed to engaging in an argument later on in the week.
A total of more than 700,000 comments have been left on the post, compared to the 20,000 to 200,000 comments Trump has received on his previous posts, and there are new replies being added every few minutes. This is the very first thing visitors to Trump’s Facebook page see, and it has become something of an ad hoc discussion forum for those who are eager to engage with even a memory of him.
