Until Donald Trump publishes his account of his entire four or eight or one-and-a-half years in the White House, the definitive chronicle will be You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year As President. He was elected because he was the most frank presidential candidate in history, a man always eager to tell the unvarnished truth about others' flaws as well as his own excellence. Now that refreshingly compulsive un-PC candor is applied to his time as leader of the free world. The mind-boggling private encounters with world leaders. The genius backroom strategy sessions with White House advisers. His triumphs over the dishonest news media. The historic, world-changing decisions many of them secret until now. What he really thinks of Melania and Ivanka and Jared, Donald Jr. and Eric and the other one. And many spectacular, historic, exclusive photographs of him in private and public, making America great again.

The absurdity that is the Trump White House is brilliantly satirized in this journal written in his voice over the period of a year. Kurt Anderson evokes the rampant stupidity, self absorption, and petty obsessions of the buffoon in the Oval Office in just the right way, mixed with photographic takes of Alec Baldwin in character as the witless Chief Executive. It's hilarious, until you realize it must be even more ludicrous in the administration of Cadet Bone Spurs.

If you find denigrating anyone is funny your a socialist. If you think Alec Baldwin or Kurt Anderson actually knows anything about Trump your as much a socialist as Alec Baldwin and Kurt Anderson. This book wasn't about parodying Trump as I first thought it was, it wasn't funny because in Alec Baldwin's socialist mind this is whining about Trump winning the presidency and White House. Baldwin is such a poor socialist loser. The guy who is playing Trump in the book is a comedian who was on America's Most Talented Show some time back. I recall when he firt walked out on stage the Hollywood celebrities sat there in disgust. In only three seconds one of them rang the X bell to get him off stage. That tells you everything you need to know about socialist Hollywood. So, I would ask if you would laugh at denigrating people with disablilities, denigrating western people who believe in their Rights and Freedoms, denigrating those who believe in western democracy, but love bullying anyone who doesn't believe in Baldwin and Hollywood's Brand-X of socialism. Sorry, I just hate bullies and always have. This could have been a very funny book, but the intent of the book was not about being funny, but being very serious and socialists would get that. I know someone at EPL is going to flag me, but once again when I see denigration of anyone in print it's a no brainer for me to toss it back on the shelves and let the lesser intelligent, especially Hollywood personalities, have their fun. It's just so pathetic.

Satire at its supreme best; uproariously funny and soberingly accurate.

Oh, god. Oh, God. I can't... I can't even... it's just...you'll have to...

Seriously, this book is hilariously, uproariously funny, right up until the moment you remember, you realize, he is really, actually the President of the United States.... and as you read this is doing stupid, horrifying stuff, somewhere in the White House.... and then it's not so funny. Then it's like, oh God, no.

But this is still a funny book, written by one of the men who, um, knows him best.
You will laugh until it hurts.
