Parler has carved out a niche among these banned right-wing influencers — like Gavin McInnes, Laura Loomer and Milo Yiannopoulos.
As conservative distrust of social media giants rises to the top of Washington’s political agenda, Parler has also gained the notice of some bona fide Republican leaders: Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale and Utah Sen. Mike Lee both began posting on the site this month.
Pascale is reportedly “scouting” Parler in advance of setting up an account for Trump himself. But it’s quite unlikely Glorious Leader would leave Twitter, the platform that helped propel him into the White House.
