The Beautiful Poetry of Donald Trump – Robert Sears

Title: The Beautiful Poetry of Donald Trump
Author: Robert Sears
Publisher: Canongate Books
Genre: Comedy/Poetry

If you are looking for a good laugh then this story will be sure to tickle your funny bone. This is most definitely satire and should not be taken too seriously. I think the cover picture is a shining example of what you will find inside.

Please enter this with a sense of humor. It pokes a little fun, but it is overall just a lively play on President Trump’s famous tweets.

It is a quick read — something to munch on after dinner. Some of the poems are better than others. I found most of the haiku’s to be a bit lacking, but I find this to be a clever gift for your more democratic friends.

I bought this on a whim and found it entertaining for the 30 minutes of delight it gave me.

You can find the book on Amazon for $11.66 in Hardcover and $7.54 in Kindle format. However, I do feel this is way overpriced for what it is. I bought it used instead for a much more agreeable price.

It is a good gag gift. The price is not justifiable at almost 12 dollars for 30 minutes of entertainment.

Synopsis: What if there’s a hidden dimension to Donald Trump; a sensitive, poetic side? Driven by this question, Rob Sears began combing Trump’s words for signs of poetry.

What he found was a revelation. By simply taking the 45th President of the United States’ tweets and transcripts, cutting them up and reordering them, Sears unearthed a trove of beautiful verse that was just waiting to be discovered.

This groundbreaking collection will give readers a glimpse of Trump’s innermost thoughts and feelings on everything from the nature of truth, to what he hates about Lord Sugar. And it will reveal a hitherto hidden Donald, who may surprise and delight both students and critics alike.

This timely publication also includes Sears’ scholarly footnotes and introduction, in which he excavates new critical angles and insights into the President’s poetry which the casual reader might initially overlook.
