I turned down two book deals, from the most unlikely of publishers, in that I do not want to do such a deal right now. I’m writing like crazy anyway, however, and when the time comes, you’ll see the book of all books. Actually, I’ve been working on a much more important project right now!




from the comments:

- He doesn’t have to work like crazy. The crazy just comes naturally.

- “If I did it: Confessions of a serial colluder”

- Mein Coveffe

- It's gonna be all Chapter 11

- "My affair with Stormy Daniels"...author Donald J Trump. A short story.

- “People are saying my book will win the Pulitzer Prize…and a Nobel, too!”

- Not only that, but he's getting a KKK lifetime achievement award.

- Melania will announce it at her immigration press conference.

- Here's how this is going to go:

Trump hires someone to write his book which he claims is his own.

It has meh to good sales, but Trump will claim it's sold almost as much as the bible, not quite as much as the bible, but pretty close. It might even have sold more, some people are saying. Not trump, of course, but some people.

Pundits very obviously point out that the book is written at an education level 10-15 grades above trump's speaking level.

Being a thin-skinned moron, he will do everything in his power to amplify the obviousness of his incompetence with excessive use of superlatives, then claim "fake news".

Someone with inside knowledge will confirm what everyone already knows, perhaps even going so far as to name the ghostwriter.

...

After a passel of "Trump is Fuming" "Trump Furious!" "Trump Rages at Inner Circle" stories, he will find some other novel way to push his utter Peter-principle mediocrity into our faces.

Alternatively, nothing gets published, but he points to something unrelated, claims it was his "book" and that the media is trying to discredit him by intentionally misunderstanding what he promised.

Should've read further...some great commentd:

- Is Putin writing the foreword?

- And probably, the book.

- He’s going to publish a tremendous book. It will be yuge. The greatest book of all time. And Mexico is going to pay for it.

- “Honey, I shrunk the Republican coalition”

- "How to Cheat Your Enemies and Stiff Your Friends"

- Shortly after "The Art of the Deal" came out, I took a two-day seminar on collective bargaining taught by experienced negotiators from both management and union sides. We read pieces of Trump's opus largely as an example of what not to do.

alstro sez:

I got it! It's his beautiful health care plan. No, wait--his infrastructure plan.

The Art of the Deal ghostwriter, Tony Schwartz, said Trump basically had nothing to do with that book and couldn't even be bothered to review what Schwartz had written.

The idea that Trump could right anything halfway coherent is just laughable. He's an idiot.

The Cult won’t care. They’ll lap it up like mother’s milk.

I turned down two book deals...

I wonder who's going to read it to him. Or maybe he's just going to skip that part.

The Peter Principle doesn't really apply to Trump though. He far exceeded his level of incompetence.

Of course none of them will read it either. They will simply lie about it and make up things they claim to have learned from it.

I think one of the appeals of the Trump cult to morons is that they don't have to expend any mental energy to be a part of it. They simply make up lies to rationalize whatever they want to believe and then agree with each other. It saves a lot of time and energy not to actually have to learn facts, figure out what's going on in the world. . . or to read books.
