"It doesn't matter what the upside on a Trump book deal is, the headaches the project would bring would far outweigh the potential in the eyes of a major publisher," said Keith Urbahn, president and founding partner of Javelin, a literary and creative agency. "Any editor bold enough to acquire the Trump memoir is looking at a fact-checking nightmare, an exodus of other authors, and a staff uprising in the unlikely event they strike a deal with the former president."

Besides the factual issues that publishing a book would bring, Trump's role in inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection and his peddling of election falsehoods since last November have made him radioactive in the Manhattan publishing world. Simon & Schuster dropped a book by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), who objected to the election results on Jan. 6, although his book was then picked up by conservative imprint Regnery....

...The presidency, however, made Trump both more famous and toxic. In contrast, just over a month after leaving office, former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama's post-White House memoirs were the objects of a bidding war involving at least four publishers, with the winning deal reportedly worth more than $65 million. Penguin Random House won the auction.<<

If he did >ahem< "write" a book it should be titled Me, Myself, and I or The Lies I told.

He can always self publish on Amazon, or maybe he could use his blog....

Can you imagine the praise for the book on the dust cover? "I read this book every day and if every one in this magnificent country did the same, the absolute truth, 100% honest facts and brilliant perfect memory of the history of the greatest leader since Jesus would bring this country back to greatness...". Donald Trump Jr.

"Fact check? More like fat check!" Kayleigh honest Makemecrazy.

Getting back to reality, Trump could sell his book for mega-millions in about 2 seconds. I don't know why Trump would give a damn about Penguin passing up the opportunity to score. And it would outsell Obama's book by a good margin.

It's the fact check that's the problem for a liar like trump. Those lies don't matter to people who liked to be lied to but that's not the real world. He will get a ghost writer to historicize his myth and some people will buy it but the irony is that everyone else is making money on their trump books but trump. That's because those other books at least have the possibility of providing some facts about trump whereas any book by trump will only be a saccharin sweet puff piece devoid of truth.

He could write it on the benefits of eating hamberders and drinking covfefe while travelling to the country of Nipple.

Enter the "library" through the gift shop and pay extra for the rides: the stormy wind ride, the Putin hurts so good, no friends like new friends and irony corner, where Omarrossa's book did better than his. Take a picture in the January 6 pence noose. Go to the echo chamber and hear hannity, tuckwhore and Ingraham repeat each other's talking points and then report it as news. Get a Chinese manufactured hoodie that says you don't really care to match the 45 hat that proves it.

The ghostwriter for the "Art of the Deal" said he regretted it
and that he realized he "put lipstick on a pig".
Yeah, no real writer would touch this project.

art of the squeal....
The guy that wrote it has a great deal to say about the fat ignorant orange fuck.
Remember his intelligence briefings where they had to put in lots of pictures and graphics, and mention his name a lot.
He has the literacy of a slow third grader, and the attention span of a gold(lame')fish

In a bit of spectacularly bad timing, we have this - Kushner signs book deal. What do I always tell you? If a prog believes something to be true, the exact opposite is true. This is just one more proof of my "prog theory of truth."
