1. Someone should tweet this to Donald Trump

Everyone knows how much he appreciates other people's success, especially when they sell more books in two weeks than "Art of the Deal" has sold since its first publication decades ago.

3. Knowing Trump, he's probably never read "Art of the Deal", since we know he doesn't like to read.

My guess is that he only read the royalty checks as he was depositing them in the bank.

4. Last Saturday I went with my daughter to an upscale Thrift Store that was having a half-off sale.

Omarosa's book "Unhinged" was for sale in the book section asking price $2.00. I got it for a buck. I justified the purchase since all the proceeds went to an animal rescue charity.
