This week Donald Trump Jr.’s first book “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us” landed on the top of the New York Times non-fiction best-seller list.
Many literary giants have published dozens of books in their distinguished careers without ever hitting the coveted spot on top of the New York Times bestseller list.
Which begs the question, how was the novice writer able to achieve such a remarkable accomplishment?
The Trump name certainly helps, Junior could publish a book entitled, “How to Apply Bikini Wax to the Genital Area and Other Grooming Advice for Republican Metrosexuals” and it would become a bestseller because Trump supporters consider anything published by a Trump holy writ. Trump cultists consider supporting any endeavor by a Trump their religious duty.
It also helps that the Republican National Committee (RNC) bought a gazillion copies to give to donors. That’s why on the New York Times’ list, next to the title, there’s a small dagger, meant to indicate that some retailers reported receiving bulk orders of the item. In other words, the only reason why the book shot all the way to the top was because the RNC bought thousands of copies.
There’s always an asterisk next to any Trump victory or achievement, there’s an enormous asterisk next to Donald Trump’s 2016 victory considering he had help from the Russians and Hillary won the popular election by three million votes.
The simple fact that an idiot like the First Boy was able to publish a book by a reputable publisher is testament to the fact that he isn’t being silenced. Although, how we wish that Junior and his father would shut the hell up
