Gossip rag Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) is so proud of ex-Politico Maggie Haberman, stenographer to the 4th Reich, that this is the lede item in their morning email thingie (enigmatic emboldening and upper-case usage is all theirs):
NEW … NYT’S MAGGIE HABERMAN is writing a book about President DONALD TRUMP.
WHAT ELSE do we need to say about this? You know this is going to be awesome. MAGGIE has been a singular force in national political reporting for a decade — first at POLITICO, and since 2015 at The New York Times, where she won a Pulitzer. She first owned the HILLARY CLINTON beat, and then seamlessly became the single best TRUMP reporter. Period.
Owned the Hillary Clinton beat is probably the thing that should be on Haberman’s headstone, and carved in smaller letters “but her emails!”
I interrupted, do continue:
THE BOOK — which will be out in 2022 — will chronicle TRUMP’S early years in New York, his rise, his presidency and whatever comes next for the 45th president. MAGGIE is a native New Yorker, so she is very familiar with the world TRUMP comes from. Javelin’s MATT LATIMER and KEITH URBAHNnegotiated the book deal for HABERMAN, and PENGUIN PRESS is the publisher.
If this was not so utterly predictable I would say it was shocking.
