Donald Trump will take any chance he gets to brag about himself and his ‘success’, and most of the time it backfires immediately. Between the fact that Trump’s presidency is actually a massive failure and the fact that Trump refuses to read, Trump’s attempts at self-promotion usually end in a disaster — and this morning was a perfect example.
Trump kicked off his Saturday morning by promoting a book on his Twitter account (which may actually be illegal) and quickly got slapped around in the Twitterverse for it. It was clear that Trump seriously thought that the book ‘Let Trump Be Trump’ by Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie was praising him and talking about his success as POTUS. In reality, the book is a major slam to Trump and contains humiliating revelations about Trump’s strange personal preferences and shocking behavior during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Congratulations to two great and hardworking guys, Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, on the success of their just out book, ‘Let Trump Be Trump.’ Finally people with real knowledge are writing about our wonderful and exciting campaign!”
Clearly, Trump does not know what’s in this book. If Trump had done just a little bit of research, he would have known that the book talks about how he binges on Diet Coke all day, stuffs his mouth with McDonald’s or Kentucky Fried Chicken, and has the most insane mood swings you’ll ever witness. Here are just a few short quotes from the book:
Watching cable, [Trump] shares thoughts with anyone in the room, even the household staff he summons via a button for lunch or one of the dozen Diet Cokes he consumes each day.”
Several advisers said the president may curse them for a minor transgression…then make amiable small talk with the same person minutes later.”
How humiliating for Trump to plug a book that bashes him so much! Clearly, Trump does not read. And on top of all that, the internet made sure that Trump regretted this embarrassing mistake:
