Publisher's Summary

What if there's another side to Donald Trump? A sensitive, poetic side? Driven by this question, Rob Sears began combing The Donald's words for signs of poetry.

What he found was a revelation. By simply taking the President's tweets and transcripts, cutting them up, and reordering them, he unearthed a trove of beautiful verse that was just waiting to be discovered.

This collection will give listeners a glimpse of the Trump's innermost thoughts and feelings on everything from the nature of truth to what annoys him about Cher - and will reveal a hitherto hidden Donald, who may surprise and delight both students and critics alike.

Good brief laugh

I think it was free, so worth the price. Voice was somewhat convincing but happy it wasn't a waste of paper.

Not very funny.

I guess one takes a chance when one orders a book that is supposed to be funny.
The authors forward was the funniest part.
The rest of it was just a rehash of many of the ugly lies that our President has tweeted.
And our President is NOT funny. Don’t waste your money on this one.

Seriously funny no matter what side your on

Seriously, there are some hurt people in these reviews. I am a Trump supporter and I still found this hilarious. We make fun of every one in office. So get over it.
This is pretty funny.

Hilarious

This is pretty funny. And in some areas so true it isn’t funny. Interesting read.

Not like the sample

The sample was read in a charming British voice, but the "poetry" is done in Trump's voice, or an impressionist.

Funniest thing I’ve ever heard

This book made me laugh so hard I almost choked and died eating a sandwich while listening to it. I definitely recommend listening if you’re looking for a good laugh.

Funny to listen to. Once is enough for a lifetime.

i listened to the entire thing in one sitting. The narrator does sound like trump. It was too politically biased to really be worth more than a casual listen. since they have taken his words out of context to make him sound ridiculous. Trump is by no means a scholar but you could literally do this to any person and make them sound this stupid.

You'll have to admit he is an hero of all times

This shows somewhat the character of the author; some crude, some blunt, some opinionated thoughts, in other words fairly interesting.
