Read full description of the books:
America's favorite, number-one con man expounds on how great he is. And, how easy it is to fool people.
It is no overstatement to call this book America's premier political tract of the 21st century; It embodies the heart of darkness that is the "fuck everybody but me" mentality carefully groomed into the populace by the Right-Wing machine and which drives today's rejection-of-the-commonweal politics. Trump one-ups Machiavelli.
It is truly the Bible of Fox News/Ayn Randian culture. And just because Trump is callow doesn't mean he's not honest. He tells you outright that he's out to screw you. But in America there is something ingrained in the citizenry that equates this kind of openly ballsy mercenary behavior with goodness, quality and substance. Moxie as an inherent good. The simple appeal of the loud strong man. Action over the cerebral. Thoughtfulness? Constitutional muster? Historical lessons? Screw all of that. Leave that shit to liberal philosophy professors. Trump voters love a con man. They would, of course, hate him if they'd found he'd hacked into their bank accounts directly and taken all their money. But they'll love him when he takes their money by perpetuating the present corporate mercenary system. Because they will be too stupid to know they've been robbed when it happens through the back door. Putting two and two together equals some number they can't quite calculate.
Let's give Trump credit for being the first politician to openly reveal the long-unstated view that the Republican Party has of its fact-challenged base: "I love the poorly educated."
There are some alternate titles for this book that would be just a valid:
* The Art of the Con, or
* The Art of Being an Asshole, or
* The Art of the Deal for People Who Have Millions of Dollars to Play Around With From the Get-Go, or
* The Art of How to Bully People, Exploit a Corrupt System, and Make a Bundle While Producing Nothing of Value in the Process.
Opening of the book, with my modest amendments:
"To my parents, Fred and Mary Trump..." who gave me millions of dollars the rest of you don't have, to pull myself up by my bootstraps with...
"I owe special thanks to several people...Ivana Trump, my wonderful wife..." who I will soon divorce when her trophy value has declined...
"And, [to] my three children..." whom I would bed in a heartbeat if they weren't my daughters, because, hey, they're hot; let's get real, people. But not the son, because, c'mon I ain't no homo.
Luckily, the Donald deigned to make time to share these kernels of wisdom with us, because, as he makes it known repeatedly, he is a very busy man, and thus hardly able to spend time on a book. We are to infer our privilege from this, and should be grateful that Trump dictated this to his ghostwriter, Tony Schwartz. And that's what this feels like: a piece of dictation. Trump could have talked into a tape recorder and had a transcriber write the book. Maybe that's close to how this actually happened. The book feels very much like a Donald Trump political speech: Full of braggadocio, flippant false sincerity, shallow statements lacking detail or justification, pandering provocative fear-mongering insults that trigger lizard-brain endorphins, and rambling jumps from one unrelated thing to another.
This is more or less the narrative of this book: "I got a call from *insert name of famous or powerful person* about *insert pending business deal* and I told *famous or powerful person* to: *(A: get back to my lawyer on it, or B.) I look forward to doing business on this, or C.) I'm gonna sue your ass*."
Valuable things I learned:
* I'm a winner.
* "I make deals, that's how I get my kicks." (at least he starts off honestly)
*If I weasel my way into an organization, people will pay to get rid of me.
*I will threaten you with lawsuits, even criminal ones that don't really apply, if you try to take actions I don't like. That always makes 'em nervous.
*I file a lot of lawsuits, and win them (except the ones I lose or withdraw, which I don't mention in this book).
*If your name is Donald Trump, everyone wants to sue you.
*It pays to sometimes be a little wild, and a bully.
*I'm a populist hero who helps little old ladies keep their farms against big bad cold-hearted foreclosing bankers (except when I do the same thing, which I have, but don't mention in this book).
*I use the word "ridiculous" a lot, as shorthand and in lieu of actually explaining my justifications.
*I know a lot of celebrities and business leaders who do me favors and give me free stuff. They're all very nice guys.
*Other people who are pompous... I don't like them so much.
*I'm such a micromanager that I even get involved in the Christmas decorations that are hung in Trump Tower. I hate all of the decorating options except for one really huge gold wreath because, as I say, "Less is more." [seriously]
*My son has my genes, because he won't take no for an answer. (But hey, neither do rapists. OK, I just threw that in for fun.)
*I love people who tell me things in 20 seconds because they don't waste my time.
*When I don't have a real answer, have no substance or no progress to report on a project I'll just call a press conference and (and I quote): "What the hell...I'll wing it and things will work out." [in other words, this will be the template for my future political speeches...and the dummies won't know the difference].
This gets three stars for unintentional laughs. If I were the Donald I would use some of my cash to get better hair, and then I would review my book thusly:
"Let me tell ya, folks, it's a mess."
