Publisher's Summary

One of our most beloved comedians, the brilliantly witty and outspoken star of The View, hits the most unpopular president ever elected where it hurts - and makes us laugh and cheer - in this hilarious alphabetical guide to everything that's wrong with the "Orange One", Donald Trump.

Put down the knife, lock away the gun, lay aside the noose - Joy Behar is here to save you from suicide as she hot walks you through the next four years (two if we are lucky, less if liberal dreams come true). Besides despair, the sane response to the insanity in the White House is laughter. On her hit ABC daytime show The View, Joy has been blunt in her condemnation of the comb-over-in-chief, and her words have electrified and inspired millions in the resistance for whom #notmypresident has become a rallying cry.

The Great Gasbag is Joy's answer to the hell that is the Trump Orange House. Structured as an A-Z guide (G is for gold...en shower; P is for Pence and p***y-grabbing; T is for tweets, twits, and twats; etc.), Joy, joined by New York Times best-selling humor author Larry Amoros, offers much-needed doses of levity and humor for everyone determined to #resist. With a major network television profile and a social media audience in the millions, this fearlessly confident star has a powerful platform to entertain Americans of all stripes - from Never Trumpers to fired-up progressives - as she takes on the worst president since...well, since ever.

Funny and Smart !

What a Joy! ✨😆

I may re-listen to this a bit every day for the duration of 45 ~ to recover from the evening news!

Smart and informed writing delivered with a wit and ballsiness ✨👏🏼✨

The perfect response to the insanity of the day-today we are being subjected to by the alternative-fact, alternative-grace, alternative-intellect 🤡👐 clown show currently occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Thank you for the laughs and the reminder that IT IS NOT NORMAL!!!

Love it !!!!

Oh Joy, you are truly marvelous. I enjoyed your book so much that it got my head out of the toilet. I thought I was the only one thinking this man is crazy..... we euthanize dogs when they go crazy......don't we.

Anyway loved your book and your explanations of A thru Z. Keep them coming. I need laughs to get me thru this presidency.

Behar's Best

Funny as ever. A, cautionary tale well read br the author. Sadly, there's a lot of truth in this modern essay. It goes quickly with never a full moment.

A JOY TO LISTEN TOO

The book was funny and liked that Joy narrates it. She made it funny and in these times it was a welcome relief. I recommend the book for anyone who has a sense of humor and wants to lighten up during the day. Joy cracks me up and hates Trump
almost as much as I do!
