After regular chairwomen stop presidenting, they’re often spate with proposals from major publishing lives for the right to release their memoirs. But adjudicating from the blowback The Wall Street Journal received after publishing Donald Trump’s recent lie-festooned letter to the editor , no one who groks that Trump’s bloviating bottom is not actually a spill fount of wisdom seems eager to let him totter inkwells anywhere near their shops.
Seriously, the guy would have trouble getting published in Penthouse Forum at this point–because his fibs are simply too preposterous to believe. But that doesn’t mean he won’t “write” a memoir( and by that I signify bellow indecencies at a ghostwriter for starting him resonate insufficiently godlike ), then self-publish it through a ostentation press. And when I say “vanity press, ” I convey any publisher that would get within a mile of his soggy embankment of ox tripe.
Of course, this won’t be only any ego press. It will be TrumpWorld’s own publishing house. And I can only assume he’ll sample his own produces about as often as the Walton family shops at Walmart 😛 TAGEND
Allies of former President Donald Trump are trying to rip up the traditional book publishing paradigm in politics by establishing a publishing home of their own. And the government has the ex-president helping them do it.
Trump announced last week that he was publishing a chocolate counter record of photographs from his time in the White House–just ahead of the festivity knack rush–with Winning Team Publishing. The outfit is a new imprint with a emphatically MAGA flavor, run by onetime Trump campaign aide Sergio Gor and Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr.
Hmm, their first secrete is a picture book. I’m surprised it’s not scratch-and-sniff, more. I’m as surprised as I am relieved.
As Politico originally recorded in June, one of the reasons Trump hasn’t inked the kind of big-money deal other former POTII have secured is that publishers are loath to bring him onboard, passed his reputation for, well, decorating the truth. One “major figure” in the publishing industry told Politico that “it would be too hard to get a book that was factually accurate, actually. That would be the problem. If he can’t even admit that he lost the election, then how do you publish that? ”
Well, you can’t, genuinely. But someone with perfectly no pity could! Hey, while they’re at it, perhaps they can finally liberate Mein Kampf for Kids.
But Trump’s chronic truth reaction isn’t his only likely impediment to a big publishing deal. Harmonizing to another publishing insider, an even bigger obstacle might be Trump himself 😛 TAGEND
“My suspicion is Trump is self-publishing because he doesn’t require the dishonour of getting a smaller advance than he has before or anyone finding out that it is smaller than Obama’s, ” said one publishing executive. Former President Barack and former first lady Michelle Obama reportedly sold their book liberties to Penguin Random House for over $60 million. “I imagine that’s as large-scale a part of it as anything.”
Donald Trump’s obsession with President Obama–who is better than the Ocher Arschloch in every imaginable way–is acclaimed. And this totally racetracks. So Trump will release his lie-brary of bullshit on his own. And I, for one, can’t wait to ignore it.
It stirred comedian Sarah Silverman say, “THIS IS FUCKING BRILLIANT, ” and motivated columnist Stephen King to shout “Pulitzer Prize !!! ”( on Twitter, that is ). What is it?
