Former U.S. President Donald Trump may be banned from Twitter, but that hasn’t stopped the twice-impeached politician from communicating with his fanbase through the social platform via aide Liz Harrington.

Harrington essentially acts as a sock-puppet account for the former reality star, sharing Trump-like takes on current events and messages directly from the former politician. Most recently however, Harrington shared an all-caps message on behalf of her boss, criticising the “tragic mess in Afghanistan,” a “completely open and broken Border,” “oil prices through the roof,” and “inflation rising.” Noting the aforementioned, Trump went onto ask, “DO YOU MISS ME YET?”

Trump’s query was ironically shared on August 13, the exact day pro-Trump conspiracy theorists, like MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell (AKA “MyPillow Guy”), claimed he would be “reinstated.” Clearly, this did not happen, as Joe Biden is currently the President of the United States.

Either way, Twitter responded to Trump asking if people missed him with a resounding “no.”

Many also addressed the murky ethics behind Trump clearly using Harrington as a Twitter ban loophole and were curious about how she’s even allowed to post on someone’s behalf when they’re banned.

One individual did agree that gas prices feel a bit high, but was met with a pretty decent retort.

But there wasn’t much love lost.

Maybe best not to ask next time, Donald.
