I wonder if they have to do spray outs to ensure they match what is there? :jester:

It’s a spray tan product for sure. Even Ivanka has discussed her father’s bronzer product habits.

And eyelids don’t tend to tan all that dark naturally anyways, because people tend to have their eyes open a lot during the day so they don’t see the sun like the rest of your face. It’s more pronounced for tanning bed users, though.. and in this case, he wears the eye shields to keep makeup out of his eyes.


Well, I guess the orange tinge suggests spray tan.

The large Loompa can bellow his message from the street in a public space and nobody would stop him.Apple has the right to choose if they want him or not.

That was a joke which you didn’t get.

Voltaire might have.

Not if they want to be considered a platform rather than a publisher.

And, no, I didn't get your joke, sorry. 8)

I haven't gone back to catch up on this, but there are reports that he is already in violation of the software licenses for the site.

The site uses a common social media software package called Mastadon. The terms of the license includes the requirement that the source be freely available, including any changes made to it. Neither Trump no his group has any legitimate ownership claims to the software.

From https://www.theverge.com/2021/10/29/22752850/mastodon-trump-truth-social-network-open-source-gab-legal-notice:

Quote:
While Truth hasn’t officially launched yet, internet users discovered that a test version basically had the same interface as Mastodon, and that some of the code for the site was unchanged from the other social network’s code. By itself, that’s actually the intended use of open-source software — but as the Software Freedom Conservancy pointed out last week, apps or websites based on software that uses the AGPLv3 license have to in turn provide their own source code. According to the foundation that wrote AGPL, it’s meant to make the community’s software better: if you improve on something that someone else made, they should be able to benefit from your work like you did theirs.

As Mastodon and Rochko reiterated on Friday, though, TMTG hasn’t done that — it even went as far as to call its software “proprietary,” and seemingly tried to hide the fact that it was based on Mastodon. Now that the Truth has been revealed, however, TMTG will either have to rebuild it without using Mastodon’s code — a tall order, as bootstrapping a social network site isn’t particularly easy — or release its source code and change the terms of service.

The man is a big target.
He should know by now that he has to cross all the "I"s and dot all the "t"s. 8)
Silly boy. :mrgreen:
