Tony Schwartz co-wrote the 1987 book 'The Art of the Deal' with Donald Trump

The co-author of Donald Trump’s bestselling 1987 book Trump: The Art of the Deal attempted to explain the psychology the resulted in the president sending a widely-panned letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“Here’s what I want to say to Donald Trump: Shut the hell up,” Schwartz said.

“You have committed countless crimes, you are a horrendous human being who seeks only to become a dictator, and even that won’t make you feel any better. We are the victims of your deep inner emptiness,” he explained.

“He is suffering, above all, from the fact that he knows he deserves impeachment. No human being on earth feels worse about himself than Trump,” he said.

“If you don’t think Trump feels anything, read his letter to Nancy Pelosi. It’s an utterly desperate cry to be excused for a life of lies and hatred — for being every bit as evil as he has always deeply if unconsciously believed himself to be,” he explained.

“Here’s what will never, ever change: Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors,” he argued. “Please, go and read Trump’s letter to Pelosi as if he was writing it entirely about himself. Pure projection.”

Despite this, pro-Trump internet trolls reportedly sought to hijack the results, spreading the message to get people to flood the poll with votes for President Donald Trump.

In the end, however, they couldn't even do it. Joe Biden won the poll, 53 percent to 47 percent.

"This is no longer a slow-motion disaster," said Gregory Poland, director of the vaccine research group at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. "This is a disaster in warp speed. And it's maddening to me as a physician because a whole lot of people have died and are dying."

Visitors to the site briefly saw a fake DOJ takedown notice.

"This site was seized," the message read. "The world has had enough of the fake-news spreaded (sic) by President Donald J. Trump."

"It is time to allow the world to know the truth," the message continued.

The message also claimed "secret conversations" prove the Trump administration "is involved in the origin of the coronavirus."
