President Donald J. Trump may someday want to pen his own memoir about his experiences in the White House over a span of four years and the worst pandemic in over 100 years, but would anyone actually publish it?
New York Post‘s Kyle Smith wrote Saturday, “If Trump shows up with a book proposal in hand, lots of New York City’s snootiest publishers are going to respond by pulling up the drawbridge and lobbing rotten eggs out the windows.”
The response is a stark contrast to the anti-Trump tell-all titled Too Much and Never Enough that his niece, Mary Trump, published earlier this year. When it was released in July, it flew off the shelves, selling a whopping 1.35 million copies in its first week alone. There’s even talk now of a follow-up contribution by the author. She may have her own familial struggles to deal with if she proceeds; the author’s uncle, Robert Trump, took legal action to try and block the publication of Too Much and Never Enough, claiming his niece had signed a nondisclosure agreement. Robert, the president’s younger brother, died in August and the case failed to proceed.
“This is far beyond garden-variety narcissism,” his niece, who has a doctoral degree in clinical psychology, wrote of Trump. “Donald is not simply weak, his ego is a fragile thing that must be bolstered every moment because he knows deep down that he is nothing of what he claims to be.”
“America’s hatred is Trump’s oxygen, Smith wrote. “Unlike Obama, the man doesn’t drink or smoke, he just mainlines the world’s disapproval. He’s already proved the single biggest boon to publishing since Johannes Gutenberg… The wokesters who represent a small percentage of the country, but make eccentric campus-style demands to shun people they find disagreeable increasingly drive decision-making among corporate executives. But that merely creates big opportunities for new competitors who are okay with making money off the nearly 74 million Americans who voted for Trump.”
While liberal publishers, such as Simon and Schuster, are likely to distance their brand from Trump, conservative publishers, such as Regnery, stand ready to invest.
“I’m hoping they will stand by their principles and not get involved,” Regnery president Thomas Spence told the Times, licking his lips at the prospect of adding Trump to his list, Smith wrote. Adding, “Let liberal dorks starve themselves while conservatives feast. Liberals may hate viewpoint diversity, but capitalism rewards it.”
Here’s the best way to pry Trump from the White House — according to a professional hostage negotiator
President Donald Trump is still refusing the concede that he lost the 2020 presidential election, which has prompted some speculation over whether the Secret Service will be forced to drag him out of the White House on January 20th.
In an interview with the Boston Globe, retired NYPD homicide detective Alfred S. Titus, Jr. said that the best way to coax Trump to leave would be to remind him of how great his life was before he decided to run for office back in 2015.
Trump-loving congressman turns himself into a laughingstock with a few deranged tweets
The first thing you should know about Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona is that he shouldn’t be confused with the famous movie villain from “Ghostbusters.”
One of them has been described as a “sadistic, shapeshifting, apocalyptic, cosmic entity.”
The other spelled his name differently and wasn’t a registered Republican.
Paul Gosar is no relation of Gozer the Gozerian. But he’s doing his best movie-villain schtick as part of a cottage industry of loyal subjects vying to carry on the manic mantle of Trumpism.
Trump turned to Giuliani after his top attorneys refused to get involved in his post-election legal battle: report
A new report from ABC News documents how President Donald Trump decided to put Rudy Giuliani in charge of his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election after his own top lawyers told him he was unlikely to prevail.
According to ABC News' sources, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, as well as longtime attorney Jay Sekulow, both gave Trump pessimistic assessments of his chances of prevailing in court with lawsuits to throw out hundreds of thousands of votes in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
