‘Your reaction just confirms it’s true’: Internet mocks Trump for fuming about ‘Stable Genius’ book

President Donald Trump is miffed that a new book that addresses his childish behavior and ignorance is so popular.

“Another Fake Book by two third rate Washington Post reporters, has already proven to be inaccurately reported, to their great embarrassment, all for the purpose of demeaning and belittling a President who is getting great things done for our Country, at a record clip. Thank you!” Trump tweeted on Saturday.

Trump then retweeted himself Monday, calling the reporters “losers” and saying the stories were all made up.

“Two stone cold losers from Amazon WP. Almost every story is a made up lie, just like corrupt pol Shifty Schiff, who fraudulently made up my call with Ukraine. Fiction!” Trump tweeted.

The book has enjoyed the top spot on the New York Times Bestseller’s List for the five days since it has been released. Trump’s son Don Jr., worked diligently to get conservative groups and national and state Republican parties to buy his book attacking Democrats. Now it appears another book mocking the president is enjoying greater success without the benefit of forcing people to buy it and give it away for free. The book fell after just a few days on the list, particularly after the book by an anonymous White House staffer was released. Popularity of the book then quickly fell from there.

It was something that earned the president considerable mockery on Twitter. Check out the comments below:

2020 Election

Trump is blindingly cruel and stupid — and his presidency has been a complete failure

Published

on

In the earliest days of the Trump crisis, just about a month after the inauguration, I received the horrifying news that my best friend and podcast partner, Chez Pazienza, had died of a drug overdose.

This article was originally published at Salon

It was the evening of Feb. 25, 2017, and the shock still hasn't quite worn off. In fact, I ask myself nearly every day what Chez might've said about the most recent atrocity committed by the chief executive. I'll never know for sure, but there's something comforting in that exercise, imagining how he'd frame this dark ride with equal parts Gen-X angst, stinging Bourdain-ish erudition and artistically worded blue streaks that would've made George Carlin applaud.

Gretchen Whitmer rips Trump in brutal op-ed: Kidnapping plot was ‘no coincidence’ — and he knows it

Published

on

In an op-ed published in The Atlantic this Tuesday, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer reflected on the kidnapping plot that targeted her, saying that when she was sworn in as governor, she had no idea that two years later a "multistate terrorist group" would threaten her life.

"I am not surprised," she wrote. "I have watched the president wedge a deeper divide in our country; refuse to denounce white supremacists on a national debate stage; and launch cruel, adolescent attacks on women like Senator Kamala Harris and public-health leaders like Anthony Fauci. And while I won’t let anything distract me from doing my job as governor, I will not stand back and let the president, or anyone else, put my colleagues and fellow Americans in danger without holding him accountable."

‘The opposite of exceptional’: Foreign journalists stunned by dysfunction of America’s 2020 election

Published

on

Veteran foreign correspondents covering America's 2020 presidential election say that the United States is acting much more like a banana republic than a stable democracy.

In interviews with The New Yorker, some of the reporters even gloated about how far America had fallen, as they were used to receiving lectures from the United States about the importance of respecting free and fair elections.

“It is stunning for me, as an African, reporting on it, that the same things that America has been lecturing Africa on appear to be happening right here,” Larry Madowo, a Kenyan-born BBC journalist, tells The New Yorker.
