Books, books, and more books

I told one of Trumps irrational, Kool-Aid drinking Deplorables a couple of weeks ago that the only people who will profit from this piece of shit presidency will be the book publishers. What is totally fascinating to me is all of these books paint the exact same picture, a picture that sane, intelligent, and rational people can easily see, Trump is an absolute shit show.

Now Bob Woodward, a man who along with Carl Bernstein brought Richard Nixon to his knees. A man whose career has been filled with honors, recognition and awards has written his own Trump book that basically paints the exact same portrait as the others did just drilled down a little bit further into the core of Trumps lifeless soul as only Mr. Woodward can. 

As you would expect King Dumbass has spent the last three days trying to tweet his way out of Woodward’s new book. But here is the thing, Evangelical Deplorable and White Redneck Deplorable were never going to read it anyway. So Trumps “counter offense” is really just a waste of internet bandwidth. But rich, white, conservative Deplorable will read it, he will have too, hell its written by the great BOB WOODWARD. His friends will read it. They will talk about it at dinner club and on the golf course. He will have no choice but to read it.

Something happened in my community that I thought I would never see in my red state, several rich, white, Republicans are supporting the Democratic running for governor. The incumbent is an “all in” Trump Republican (isn’t that a sad sounding moniker?), which is to say an irrational piece of shit in his own right. The Governors spokesperson stated that his Democratic opponent is an “anti-religious liberty, abortion-on-demand, high-tax candidate” and a “socialist wannabe”. Sounds like they took a page right out of Steve Bannon’s handbook for Trump. The only thing they didn’t say, that I am sure they wanted to, is that their opponent will give equal treatment and respect to black and brown people. 

Never, ever forget what the three important issues are that keeps Trumps base behind him;

  1. White privileged.
  2. Religious bigotry.
  3. High wealth tax breaks.

That’s it, nothing more, nothing less. So why do, as Trump called Jeff Sessions, “dumb southerners” support this pompous ass? See # 1. And why do pious, greater than thou, Evangelicals support this immoral POS? See # 2. And why do CEO’s, and the WASP Country Clubbers support this classless, bankrupt, golf cheat? See # 3. Trump was right when he said could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and not lose any voters. But if he gave black and brown people an equal voice, or funded abortions, or raised the minimum wage then we would see his base scurry out of the light and into the darkness like rats.

I have refrained from reading all the of previous Trump “tell-all” books but I will probably buy Woodard’s. I have read at least a half a dozen of his previous books and I can state, unequivocally, that all were well written, researched and left no stone unturned. He is not sensational, he presents facts and opinions and all of Trumps tweets won’t remedy the damning details.

Trump has tweeted that the book is “boring & untrue” and “total fiction” as if he knows what is contained in the 400 pages. This I can guarantee, he hasn’t read it and he won’t read it because he doesn’t read. To garner his attention requires pictures and crayons and that isn’t the kind of journalist Bob Woodward is or will ever be.

“The Woodward book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly. Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public. Likewise other stories and quotes. Woodward is a Dem operative? Notice timing?” – Trump tweet 9-4-18

  1. I am thrilled that Florida along with its neighbor, Georgia could have black governors after the mid-terms. Hell, maybe I’ll see another black man in the Oval Office. Hope springs eternal. Trump is no match for the integrity and intelligence of Woodward. He may as well just take his little cars and trucks out to play in the White House sandbox.

  2. I cannot WAIT to get my hands on this book. I know this is one author I can trust has done his homework. I know he has because Kelly and Mattis are already trying to squirm out of what they said.
