Trumpet, Trumpet Good

The rumor about President Trump launching his own social media platform appears to be true.

Former President Donald Trump is planning to return to social media with his own social network, according to spokesman Jason Miller.

"I do think that we're going to see President Trump returning to social media, probably in about two or three months here, with his own platform."

And because President Donald J. Trump never does anything small you can anticipate the social platform will be just the first building block in the creation of a media empire. I’ve given a great deal of thought as to what he should name his new venture and recognizing that he has a bias for affixing the family name to his creations - blow his own horn if you will - I believe I’ve come up with the perfect name for this new empire. Actually Raj came up with it but since we’re a team I’m going to take credit, so are you ready? Here it is: TRUMPET. The Trumpet Media® - I quite like it and the the symbolism is near endless.

The Trumpets of Jericho:


The 7th Trumpet of Revelation:


A Trumpet swan taking flight:

Possibly even the “Trumpets of Jericho” Stuka dive bomber. Oh sure, it was a German Luftwaffe craft:


The Trumpets of Jericho – the Luftwaffe Used Sirens Attached To Stuka Dive Bombers To Cause Panic And Fear Among Their Enemies. Probably the most iconic German aircraft during WWII, the Stuka dive bomber became the symbol of a string of successful campaigns in the early stages of the war.

And eventually Allied airpower got the better of it, but there’s no argument that it served it’s purpose upfront.

What specifically made these planes horrific were the two horns attached to the wings which produced a screeching sound once the aircraft was inbound for a strike. As the Stuka descended from the sky to drop its deadly load, the scream which accompanied it had a devastating effect on the morale of anyone who was on the ground. War History Online

Imagine the same concept only with virtual digital sound, thus eliminating the need for the weight of the  actual sirens that slowed the bomber down thus limiting its velocity. Now both the fear factor and the strike power would be quite intimidating.

So yes, I think TRUMPET® is the perfect name for a new media rising. If any of you are on a first name basis with our President, Ivanka, Donald Jr. or even Eric, please pass this suggestion on.
