In the wake of the latest biography written about him, Maggie Haberman’s “Confidence Man,” and unhappy that so many biographies written about him are negative, Donald Trump has come up with another conspiracy theory to explain such bad press: publishers are in cahoots “I know many people that wanted to write a good book about me, but their publishers wouldn’t let them,” Trump wrote. “They were not interested in any way, shape or form unless they were willing to say bad things. Some took a pass, and some sold out to the enemy.”
Twitter posters are having a ball with this news. “I would imagine a book written about all the good things Trump has done would be called a pamphlet, and that’s if it was double-spaced and bold print.” Another, referring to the outrageous claim recently made by Trump that a president can declassify documents just by thinking about it, quipped, “Would it help if they made it look like classified documents or ones he changed with his mind?”
Some posters weren’t just having fun at his expense, they were wondering whether Trump should be more concerned about the massive hurricane that wreaked havoc on Florida and all the damage that it did, instead of obsessing over his bad publicity. “His home state was just devastated, but let’s fret about books,” tweeted a user.
Trump’s actions during Hurricane Ian have already come under fire. According to Business Insider, he spent the storm at Mar-a-Lago, sending a fundraising email. Maybe he thought he had changed the course of the hurricane with his magic marker to avoid causing any damage as he did in 2019 in the infamous “Sharpie-gate” incident?
