Books by Trump supporters and confidants, former White House employees, are not selling very well.
Chief lackey and flack liar Kellyanne Conway released a memoir titled “Here’s the deal” this week. It’s number 28 among all books on amazon.com and number 40 on the Barnes and Noble website. Conway stuck with Trump in the book, not criticizing him, but threw her husband George under the Twitter bandwagon. There is a limited audience for this kind of propaganda. We will see next week what the sales figures are.
We know the numbers from Dr. Deborah Birx’s book about her time working with Dr. Anthony Fauci for Trump. NPD Bookscan says it sold 4,200 copies of “Silent Invasion,” which isn’t a lot, but it’s a lot considering Birx was totally complicit with Team Trump. She was known for wearing scarves but not much for her medical professionalism.
When Trump suggested that everyone should use Clorox or ultraviolet light to cure COVID, Birx just nodded. Who would give him money now for a book? Or Conway? Even Republicans have to pay for gas and groceries.
The real book we’ve been waiting for would be by Claudia Conway, when she turns 21 and can tell us what really happened in her parents’ home during Trump’s final year in the White House. I hope she has hidden journals somewhere!
