THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER What if there's a hidden dimension to Donald Trump; a sensitive, poetic side? Driven by this question, Rob Sears began combing Trump's words for signs of poetry.What he found was a revelation. By simply taking the 45th President of the United States' tweets and transcripts, cutting them up and reordering them, Sears unearthed a trove of beautiful verse that was just waiting to be discovered.This groundbreaking collection will give readers a glimpse of Trump's innermost thoughts and feelings on everything from the nature of truth, to what he hates about Lord Sugar. And it will reveal a hitherto hidden Donald, who may surprise and delight both students and critics alike.This timely publication also includes Sears' scholarly footnotes and introduction, in which he excavates new critical angles and insights into the President's poetry which the casual reader might initially overlook.… (mais)

This made for some light reading as I finally near the end of Ulysses. Quite funny and a very clever idea. Rob Sears reassembled a collection of Trump tweets and quotes and stitched them together in individual poems, some of which are actually hilarious. Every line in each poem is referenced back to the original statement, which makes it even funnier, but also quite sad. Yes, these are real quotes!

As a Star Trek fan, I really appreciated "I am the innocent (pure) one!" (p. 97):
I love the universe
The bigness of it all
Space is terrific
Honestly I think NASA is wonderful
Reach out, seek and explore


But I think one of my favorites has to be "Good genes" (p. 91)”:
”All men are created equal”
Well it’s not true
Some are smart, some aren’t

Do we believe in the gene thing? I mean, I do!
I'm blessed with good genes
Good (great) brain. Good-sized hands. German blood.

We have people that are stupid
They cannot help the fact that they were born fucked up
Slow horses don’t produce fast horses

It was only a matter of time before someone would splice the words from Trump’s many interviews, incendiary rallies, and ridiculous tweets to create “poetry.” This is hilariously done here. On one page is the fake poem with each sentence or sentence fragment (including the title) numbered so the source can be found on the opposite page.

An example and personal favorite:

We have by far the highest IQ of any Cabinet ever assembled

I appointed today the head secretary of the Veterans
Administration, David Shulkin
General Kelly is going to do a fantastic job at Homeland
Security
Ben Affleck is going to do a great job as Batman

The faux serious “Editor’s notes” and the cover image of Trump’s head pasted onto the body of Dylan Thomas only make this collection better. ( )

Trump is the worst even as the butt of a spoof. ( )

Amazing book full of sensitive yet profound verses ( )

Quick impressions: Another entry in the various gimmick humor books about Trump now that he is U.S. President. Good effort by the author overall in taking speeches and texts from Trump and "finding" the poetry in them. However, quality of poems does vary. Some are really good and amusing, others not so much. Your mileage may vary.

(I will be posting a review of this on my blog later) ( )
