That’s a long title, isn’t it? And if you don’t already know, I really hate Trump and everything he stands for. I also find Alec Baldwin as Trump one of the funniest things alive since he’s actually pretty spot on but over the top, but also really accurate. He knows how to act the part no matter how you put it.
I was scrolling through the political books that were available as a downloadable audiobook through my library and this popped up. Which is funny since 1) this is slightly political; 2) it is satire; and 3) it is very loosely nonfiction. I don’t know what my library was thinking, but I wouldn’t have found out about it otherwise.
So, the first thing I want to say is that I highly suggest the audiobook version. Alec Baldwin narrates first as Trump, then as himself, and then he leaves and gets someone else, and then someone else does, and finally Trump comes back.
Either way, it’s really funny since it largely takes you through the year from the eyes of Trump. Baldwin and Andersen (since this is written by the two of them) take Trump and really make it a joke about how he’s mentally unstable. He’s very public about how he doesn’t use any type of drugs, so he’s sober when he makes all of these statements. Scary, right?
I found myself laughing right away and it kept me entertained throughout the whole book. Humor isn’t my genre for the most part. I don’t read it because humor gets old really fast for me. I get bored since all the jokes are the same. This book doesn’t escape that critique, but I still found it funny the whole time.
I do recommend this book if you want to find humor in the past year, and wants a twist about what’s going on in Trump’s mind and perhaps all the things he holds back from us.
