Book review on ‘Trump Unvailed’ by John K. Wilson.
First published in The Canary on 10 March 2017:
Unless you’ve been living on Mars (which looks like a great place to be these days), you’ll know who Donald Trump is. But how the hell did he get into one of the most powerful positions in this world?
To help us understand, John K. Wilson has put out a brand new edition of his book President Trump Unveiled: Exposing the Bigoted Billionaire. In it, he lays out the many shades of Trump; or what the book’s publisher calls “the truth behind the glitz”.
Trump the narcissist
It perhaps goes without saying that someone as self-obsessed as Trump wants one of the most prestigious jobs in America. But much to his dismay, he’s receiving more negative ratings than ever before. Why? Because he’ll do whatever he thinks is beneficial for him. And because he’s a bully.
As his music teacher once declared [p.37]:
“When that kid was ten, even then he was a little shit.”
