Stormy Daniels has a new book out – I guess it’s her first book – called Full Disclosure. On Amazon it’s already listed no. 1 in the category ‘Biographies of Political Leaders.’ For the record, no. 2 on that list is What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton, while others near the top are The Restless Wave by John McCain, A Higher Loyalty by James Comey, and a book about U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence.
You get the idea.
So as not to completely disparage the tastes of the current book-reading public, there is some stuff about Churchill and the Kennedys there too.
My wife is addicted to CNN coverage of the Trump presidency, and the other night we watched a review of Full Disclosure which got into nitty-gritty about the appendage of the Oval Office’s present occupant.
No, I’m not making this up.
As an author myself, I feel rather depressed about this state of affairs, not only in politics, but in literature. How low can it get?
Well, if Stormy Daniels is at the top rung of Biographies of Political Leaders, we can only wait and hold our collective breath. But I have to muse about what will happen if Full Disclosure catapults Ms. Daniels into a real political career. Like maybe the first woman President of the United States.
Then we’d see a whole slew of books by her, beginning with A New Take on the Twin Towers, to be followed by Busting Out in the White House, and culminating in the explosive tell-all memoir Fifty Shades of Lay which morphs into a trilogy, picture book, audio book and series that goes on forever.
Hey, who says people don’t read anymore?
In its description of Full Disclosure, Amazon leads with this: “How did Stormy Daniels become the woman willing to take on a president? What is it like to be reviled by some, held up as a beacon of hope by others, and to be an object of fascination to all?”
A beacon of hope?
You know, it’s pretty easy to see what Ms. Daniels does for a living. Just go to any number of websites. But could such a person actually be elected President?
Yes. Because it’s 2018.
