Reviews

"From the moment Trump descended the escalator at Trump Tower, Jennifer Mercieca, like no one else, immersed herself in the rhetoric of Donald Trump, explicating in real time and with meticulous precision and clarity, how a bombastic pitchman emerged as America's authoritarian PT Barnum, using nothing more than his weaponized words to transform a polarized and dispirited nation into his own reality TV show. This book is essential to understanding how he did it and the peril it poses for democracy."--Jonathan Tilove, chief political writer, Austin American-Statesman--Jonathan Tilove
"A rollicking tour of Donald Trump and his rhetorical excess. Jen Mercieca hits all of the high points."--Roderick P. Hart, author of Political Tone: How Leaders Talk and Why
