Some Lunchtime Reading

A BRIEF HISTORY OF TRUMPWORLD TELL-ALLS at Vanity Fair reminds me of Spy Magazine of old. Really well done thumbnail sketch of the plethora (or is it a cornucopia?) of egregious books from insiders from the Third Reich nitwits.

They have categories for

  • The Author – who the person is and why you might consider reading their tell-all
  • The Reveal – the big reason anyone might want to read the damn thing
  • The Irony – some conflict the author might have with the reveal. I could hear Eiron giggling, I swear.
  • Number of books sold – did the BS sell?

Seriously, very Spy-like. I miss this sort of brief, snarky, accurate reportage.

    Ten books so far, but from the brief descriptions I’m thinking they’re all just exercises in frenetic arm waving and finger pointing. It’s all a collective spurting of, “We didn’t do anything wrong OK,” except they will always be associated with the worst president ever…

      Tedious, wet tinder, lies.

      Witness to a Century he calls this book? Where do they find these people?
      Nevermind, i have a pretty good idea. It doesn’t make it right.
      Why do we have a bunch of Republican fratboys and biblefreaks running our country?

    A few years from now, all these “books” will be polluting the shelves of our favorite local charity thrift stores. Like a flash flood, a big stinking logjam of danger and corruption.
