Uh-oh! It looks like Don Jr.’s crappy new app isn’t doing so well.
Jr. launched MxM (“minute by minute”) News last month in an effort to compete with Apple News and Google News. The news aggregation app curates
fake news stories from a variety of propaganda sites online publishers across the narrow wide ideological spectrum.
But evidently, MxM News is struggling to get off the ground because the ex-president’s eldest son is now leaning on his fiancee, Kimberly Guilfoyle, to help promote it. Yes, the same Kimberly Guilfoyle who did an absolutely abysmal job as Donald Trump‘s 2020 campaign fundraising chair.
On Easter Sunday, Guilfoyle tweeted, “I get all my news from @mxmnews, created by @DonaldJTrumpJr! Download the app and stay informed.”

Seriously? This is almost as pathetic as the time she hawked Trump branded scented candles on her Instagram Story during the 2020 holiday season.

It certainly looks as though Jr.’s app is on a similar crash course as his father’s crappy Twitter knockoff, Truth Social, which has been a source of embarrassment for the ex-president over the past several months.
A March report by Sensor Tower revealed Truth Social suffered a 93% drop in new signups since going live in February, with downloads falling by more than 800,000. On top of that, weekly visits by people who already had the app fell to 1.9 million, from a high of 6 million when it first launched.
Per the Daily Beast:
In recent weeks, sources have heard the former president on the phone swearing gratuitously and asking things like, “What the f*ck is going on” with Truth Social.
He’s repeatedly groused about the negative press and the less-than-stellar optics of the rollout, these sources said. And he’s demanded to know why more people aren’t using it—why the app isn’t swiftly dominating the competition.
Here’s how people responded to Guilfoyle plugging Jr.’s app…

You shouldn’t get your news from one source—especially when it is obviously biased.
