Trump planning a 'Tell All' book

Last edited Fri Apr 5, 2019, 04:15 PM - Edit history (1)

Trump Is Already Plotting His Post-White House Tell-All Memoir
Daily Beast

(snip) Since at least mid-2017, Trump has been talking about the post-presidential memoir he will write; or, more likely, have ghostwritten on his behalf. He is planning on it being explosive and assumes (not without reason) that it will be a New York Times bestseller. And since the early days of his administration, he has conveyed his eagerness to get started on the project.

“He sounded excited about it,” said one person who was present last year when the president made comments about writing a memoir. “He said it would sell better than even The Art of the Deal.”

Another source, who is a friend of Trump’s, said the president has casually discussed how such a book could be used to dish dirt and settle scores with his foes in the media, the Democratic Party, non-loyal Republicans, law enforcement, and even individuals in his own administration. Trump, according to this person, noted that this memoir could help “correct” the “fake news” already published in popular books and newspapers, and give him the opportunity to spin a juicy yarn on his time at the heights of power.

10. The Art of the Steal

Of course, it will have to be shelved in Fiction.

Wouldn't it be grand if libraries and bookstores (physical and online) chose not to carry it?

12. Wonder who's going to write it.

Nice to see he plans on not being there forever though. He’d better hurry. He’s losing words fast.

13. Who is going to publish it? Four guys and their mimeograph machine?

Because unless a publisher is advised by an attorney who ranked even lower than Michael Cohen at the worst-law-school-in-the-country that the latter attended, I doubt that any mainstream company would come near this. Something about that willful disregard for the truth.

20. I honestly thought this was The Onion

until I remembered how vindictive Trump is. This would be a way of sticking it to his "enemies." Of course, it would be a pack of lies, but it would probably sell.

22. We are also eager

for this jackass to get started on his POST-PRESIDENTIAL memoir. Can't happen soon enough.
