The Synopsis

It’s the year 2024. Mar-a-Lago has been destroyed by the Great Fire. Combing through the rubble, investigators make a startling discovery – the Diary of Donald J. Trump for the year 2024. Eloquently translated from Trump-speak into real English by a woke translator hired by the ex-President, these 87 diary entries contain the nuggets of wisdom that Trump was able to muster over the course of the year as he navigated political and personal challenges that he barely understood, let alone overcome.

Who knew he had such pithy wisdom to impart? Who knew he had the discipline to keep a diary? For that matter, who knew he could even write? Startling revelations, the challenges of everyday life, missing documents, Wordle, smoothies, running mates, harmonicas, it’s all there – naked – for all to see in this unique political satire. Mark Twain meets Donald Trump in The Trump Diaries 2024.

The Review

This was such a hilarious and brilliant read. The author does an incredible job of capturing the voice and mannerisms of the former president. The humor that is infused into the author’s writing allows for the hypocrisy and ridiculous actions that the former President to be presented in a clear and hilarious light. The fictional aspects of the narrative that fast-forward to a possible future are both funny and yet chilling all at once, and give insight into the direction our nation is heading as a whole. 

The way in which the author wrote is something that has entertained and captured my attention throughout his entire political satire series. The “diary” style of writing allows the author to showcase the public perception of Trump’s innermost thoughts, and how he perceives the world around him. The commentary on Putin and his inability to accept reality were especially biting and hilarious to read, as it speaks to the delusional state of Trump and his allies as a whole in regard to the 2020 election.

The Verdict

Funny, witty, and thought-provoking, author Barry Robbins’s “The Trump Diaries 2024” is a must-read political satire book. The charm and caricature of the former president speak to the tensions and concerns so many have as the nation becomes more and more politically charged, and the author’s writing speaks both to the inspirations of SNL and MAD magazine-style comedy and to the insightfulness into our nation’s politics.

Trump Corrected: A Counter-Quotation Book by Bill Adler Jr. Review

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own. 

The truthfulness of current and controversial U.S. president Donald Trump takes center stage as his quotes and known sayings are challenged with facts and reason in author Bill Adler Jr.’s “Trump Corrected: A Counter-Quotation Book”.

The Synopsis

Trump Corrected is a counter-quotation book. For each quotation by Donald Trump, Trump Corrected offers alternative, enlightened, informed and sane words spoken by somebody else.

The strange, often incoherent, furious, fatuous or just plain ignorant words that spill out of Donald Trump’s mouth and keyboard are paired in Trump Corrected with intelligent, rational comments. Trump Corrected is the conversation you always wanted to see between Donald Trump and thoughtful people like Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Jon Stewart, and Stephen King. People who know what they’re talking about.

When Trump isn’t lying, he’s often babbling incoherently, staggering from subject to subject — even within the same sentence. The politicians, historians, musicians, athletes, diplomats, writers, comedians, scientists and others quoted in Trump Corrected have an advantage over Donald Trump when it comes to speaking clearly and honestly about the subjects that perplex President Trump: They read books. Or they take the advice of former President Barack Obama: “The most important thing you need to do is to have big chunks of time during the day when all you’re doing is thinking.” Trump Corrected may not be a fair fight, but it’s an illuminating and sometimes amusing one.

Viewed from the perspective of Trump’s duelists, Trump Corrected gives an insightful and revealing look at Donald Trump, as well as hope that reason and intelligence will be restored to America.

The Review

During a contentious time such as ours, when we are in the midst of social unrest, the fight for civil rights, and a global pandemic, this book has never felt more relevant. The author brilliantly showcases the sad state of Trump’s opinions and official statements and builds upon them to argue or counter-point the statements with logical, intellectual and sound reasoning from more credible sources. 

Touching on everything from Healthcare and the Press to his Presidency and Trump’s own ego, the author holds no punches as they expertly take apart Trump’s own statements and calls out just how much the President thinks of himself versus the actual intellect and truthfulness of what he’s saying to the public, much of which comes from his overly used Twitter account. Readers will not be able to put down this book as it showcases a multitude of lies, inaccuracies, and hurtful commentary from a man who is supposed to be leading our nation, (and this was before the last couple of years of his Presidency). 

The Verdict

A must-read for anyone who enjoys political non-fiction reads evenly paced books and is seeking to educate and learn about the inaccurate statements and history of the man who is currently running the United States in the midst of some of our nation’s biggest struggles, and is affecting the world stage as well. A truly thought-provoking read, be sure to grab your copy today!
