The New Yorker published a fascinating piece about Tony Schwartz, the man who actually wrote “The Art of the Deal,” Donald Trump’s 1987 bestseller. Schwartz is sorry about that. An excerpt from The New Yorker piece:
“I put lipstick on a pig,” he said. “I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.” He went on, “I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.”
If he were writing “The Art of the Deal” today, Schwartz said, it would be a very different book with a very different title. Asked what he would call it, he answered, “The Sociopath.”
Hoocoodanode, amirite? The whole thing is worth a read. It pretty much confirms that Trump is and always has been who we think he is, and it underscores the importance of stopping him.
