Donald Trump Jr. — the smart brother — is shopping a book around to major publishers, and strangely, no one’s biting. “There was basically no interest in a book that’s basically a defense of daddy book when you’re under federal investigation yourself,” says one source.
It’s not just that, I suspect. It probably doesn’t help that the potential audience for the book — Trump supporters — don’t actually read anything, except for the ticker on Fox News, and unfortunately, Voldemort was unavailable to do the audiobook.
But as Fox News states, there’s still a chance!
Despite the president’s relatively low approval ratings, he still maintains a cult appeal with his most ardent followers. That appeal translates to authors who write glowingly about him, these publishers say.
Trump Jr. could easily sell between 150,000 and 300,000 books, according to one publisher, more than enough to repay an advance of between $500,000 and $1 million.
I think what they’re saying is that Donald Trump is only willing to shell out enough to pay for 150,000-300,000 of his son’s books in order to avoid embarrassment for the family.
Meanwhile, I have managed to procure a manuscript for Eric Trump’s book, which he is also currently shopping. Interestingly, it’s a pro-environment book.
Look how well he (mostly) manages to stay inside the lines. Bless!
