To Kill the President: a (non) review

Posted by Paul Samael on Sunday, January 14, 2018 Under: Book reviews

Just finished "To Kill the President" by Sam Bourne.  It wasn't bad - and although we never meet the President, I'm fairly sure I know who the author had in mind.  But who cares what I thought about it?  Here's what the Leader of the Free World made of it (allegedly), when it was drawn to his attention:

@realDonaldTrump tweeted:

Sam Bourne is a total loser and hater who made up a story to write this really boring and untruthful novel. More FAKE NEWS!

@realDonaldTrump tweeted:

Great reporting from @foxandfriends - just found out Sam Bourne is really Jonathan Freedland, third-rate journalist on failing UK newspaper @guardian.  Too scared to use own name!  Why doesn’t mainstream media report these facts? SAD!

@realDonaldTrump tweeted:

When will deranged liberal clown Jonathan Freedland (aka Sam Bourne) apologise to me?  President in novel WAY too dumb to be me. In first chapter, fails to nuke North Korea!  Little Rocket Man better believe I won’t be such a pushover.

@realDonaldTrump tweeted:

Aides say I must spend more time running country. I said NO! Too busy writing own novel about being greatest President ever.  140 characters so far but already WAY better than pathetic effort from overrated phony Sam Bourne.

Continues in similar vein until January 2025, following which Trump declares himself President for life.  Eventually dies but alas, technology has by then advanced to a point where it is possible to tweet from the afterlife:

@realDonaldTrump tweeted:

Just met God.  Very smart guy.  But needs my help to MAKE HEAVEN GREAT AGAIN.
