Description

"Read Fake President….This book can help us replace Trump with truth."
—Gloria Steinem

"Terrific new book. Fake President informs as it entertains." 

--Laurence Tribe

An incisive, witty roadmap into the disinformation and betrayals of President Trump—just in time for the impeachment hearings and the 2020 election.

Donald Trump was lawfully selected as the US president...but is still a "fake" president because he simply lacks the integrity, intelligence, and stability to perform the duties of the office as the Constitution intended. "If you spend so much time golfing, tweeting, and seething," write Green and Nader, "it's understandable that a POTUS doesn't get around to appointing one-third of all agency inspector generals...Might as well expect a surgeon to be an opera singer."

As the House Impeachment Inquiry unfolds based on a similar premise, Fake President decodes many of his worst scandals and "twistifications" (a Jefferson coinage). And it’s bound to get even worse as the House gets closer to actual Articles of Impeachment and the Fall election approaches. Since it's nearly impossible to keep track of Trump's "daily lava of lies," two of America’s foremost public advocates do that work for you. This is your one-stop shop that explains what the Lyin' King means to our democracy.

It’s a cheeky, deadly rebuke of Trump’s incorrigible "fakery"...from his dishonesty about foreign policy to blatant ignorance about the environment to his messianic narcissism.

Fake President is an essential guide to help you understand the two biggest news stories of the coming year—impeachment and the 2020 presidential election.

Praise For Fake President: Decoding Trump's Gaslighting, Corruption, and General Bullsh*t

"Read Fake President for proof positive that the accidental occupant of the White House, who only played a businessman on TV,  will lash out at any criticism, no matter how helpful, and follow any praise, even from Russia or Saudi Arabia. This book can help us replace Trump with truth."
-- Gloria Steinem
