Hundreds of writers and book agents sign joint letter demanding publishing industry bans Trump memoi

https://mobile.twitter.com/CBS_Herridge/status/1351362155485016066

More than 250 signatories say there should be no book deals for ‘an administration that caged children’ and encouraged a ‘coup’

Editors, publishing agents and authors have signed-up to a letter in the hundreds, demanding the industry deny Donald Trump the publication of any post-presidential memoir.

The letter, titled "No Book Deals for Traitors,” was signed by more than 250 editors, authors and publishing agents last week.

Together, they oppose any Trump administration official from publishing a future book - including the outgoing president, who is rumoured to be considering a memoir.

1. Trump is illiterate, unintelligent and uninteresting and can't write a book without a ghost writer.

2. They've always got the reliable nut publisher who's doing Hawley's book.

They've been peddling garbage for decades and Trump still has enough suckers on the line to make them some money.

5. Nobody in the civilized world needs to publish Trump's

"The Art of My Kampf". Maybe he can find a publisher in Russia.

6. There's enough bad fiction out there as it is...

...without Trump adding to the stinkpile.

But wondering which hack would be willing to ghostwrite it could be a good parlor game.
