Great twist on Trump! I can't even watch the news because of Trump's behavior and yet I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. It's dark and funny and twisted and sometimes sad sometimes ridiculous, but it let me hate Trump in an all new way without getting me worked up like I do when I watch the news. All of the stories were unique and wonderful in their own way. Some of my favorites include: Love in the Time of Trumpites by Wonder Vanian, a bizarre vampire Trump story, Notification by Brian Smith about the future use of cell phones pertaining to Trump, The Trivia Room by Jared Bennett which freaked me out and stayed with me a long time, Ma Gohardy's Shop by Paul Williams disturbing and loved the writing, Avoiding Eye Contact on Main Street, USA by Jacob Guyon, The History Changers by Ross Baxter which was especially relevant after Jeff Flake's speech and the poem In Trump We Trust by Livia Finucci. But once again I enjoyed every single story. It is a really fun read, and the stories are short, so you can set it down, come back.
When I saw this listed for read and review on Library Thing, I thought it might be interesting, and it was. The book holds a bunch of stories, some good and some not so good, inspired by President Trump and his administration. I am not one to want to watch the president or vignettes about him on TV nightly, but I became quickly immersed in this book, though the main idea was President Trump.. I found some of the stories downright scary, though they all seemed feasible to me. Each one provides a good satire on Trump and what he leads us to every day. Not sure if I would want them all to be true, however, as that is SCARY. This is a good look at what Trumpism can bring about, done in a thoroughly enjoyable way. I recommend it for anyone interested in this aspect of the president or who enjoys a good laugh (or scare).
The stories were good. They covered a plethora of Trump inspired scenarios. Like picking at a scab, reading this was horribly irresistible and best done intermittently. The editors clearly tried to balance their choice but using an unbalanced catalyst had consequences.I received this as a LibraryThing Member GiveAway.

When I wrote "Duty" I had no idea how bad this administration was going to get. I had no idea there would be rioting in the streets or a country shut down by a pandemic. We have a president trying to stay in power after he clearly lost the election and reports coming out of the White House that he's going insane.... This is a little too close to life imitating art for comfort......
