Let Them Eat Tweets is an intentionally political divisive book. I am only concerned because the non-rich Republican voter who needs to read the facts within the book will skip it based on the title or quickly judge it as fake news. Essentially, the book is preaching to its own, democratic, choir.
And the choir, which includes me, already knows these things just from being alive at this time. Someone needs to press home a simple truth: Watch what Trump does—not what he says. His actions do truly contradict his rhetoric. Making America Great Again is a fantastic slogan…but what has he done to achieve that for anyone but himself and his rich friends? Not much, if anything. His plan is brilliant in its simplicity. Deny everything and, if the truth comes out, call it fake news. I better get off my soapbox and get back to the review.
If you are a Democrat or a never-Trump Republican, Let Them Eat Tweets will validate your views. If you are a Trumper, you aren’t reading this review or the book but instead blasting me as a fool in the comments. That’s fine. We can agree to disagree. Because of the tone of the book, in my eyes at least, is not hitting the correct audience, 3 stars.
Thanks to Liveright, W.W. Norton & Company, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
