It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was a time when people suggested that “Art of the Deal” be moved to the fiction section, while “The Handmaids Tale” be classified as current events. Yes, friends, it was the Age of Trump.
Dear Jeff Bezos,
Amazon should move "Art of the Deal" to the Fiction section.

The talk shows are having a good laugh at Trump’s expense, while author Tony Schwartz, who wrote every word of “The Art of the Deal” is once again telling everybody how writing Trump’s faux-biography was “putting lipstick on a pig.”
"If I had to rename 'The Art or the Deal' I would call it 'The Sociopath.'"

Schwartz thinks that Trump has probably never paid taxes. We may indeed find that that is true, as more of Trump’s taxes are revealed, particularly his New York state taxes.
Interesting how a guy who has spent a lifetime ripping off the government is now running it — or is it’s titular head. He’s not running anything, except into the ground, which is the only thing he knows how to do.
