Down Goes Trump
Down Goes Trump is a collection of satirical stories, based on news, about the entertaining but absurd and often quite dangerous events following the election of President Donald J. Trump in November 2016 until shortly after his loss to Joe Biden four years later. In addition to fictionalized first-person entries by Trump and contemporary political and social personalities Nancy Pelosi, Kim Jong Un, Vladimir Putin, James Mattis, Rex Tillerson, John Bolton, Maxine Waters, Meryl Streep, Melania Trump, and many others, the author offers unexpected commentary by historical figures including Martin Luther King, General Robert E. Lee, Babe Ruth, Joseph Stalin, the Ayatollah Khomeini, and General Douglas MacArthur. There are no filters as Trump blunders the nation and world toward a nuclear confrontation with North Korea, a war with Iran, backs out of international agreements, wages psychological war against people of color in the United States, and bungles containment of the coronavirus. Buckle your seatbelts for a turbulent ride.
