About the Author

He's spent the last nine years as one of the executive producers of Modern Family, and has worked on many shows including Evening Shade, Roseanne, Just Shoot Me, and so many flops.
Paul Slansky is a regular contributor to The New Yorker, where his quizzes skewering the Bush "presidency" have appeared since the 2000 election. His work has also been seen in, among dozens of publications, The New York Observer, Spy, The New York Times Magazine, The New Republic, Newsweek, Esquire, Playboy, Rolling Stone and the Huffington Post. He is the author of The Clothes Have No Emperor, a New York Times bestseller about the Reagan presidency; Idiots, Hypocrites, Demagogues, and More Idiots; The George W.

"As a co-discoverer of how a short-fingered vulgarian rises to the bait when you repeatedly call him a short-fingered vulgarian in print, I was delighted to see a version of Spy's experiment replicated 25 years later on social media. Well-played, Danny Zuker!" -- Kurt Andersen, author of Fantasyland

"He Started It! preserves this lopsided battle of wits! Spellbinding Rope-A-Dope Tweets--kinda like watching Don Rickles debate Shemp Howard, or a really good Bugs Bunny vs. Elmer Fudd cartoon. Fun! Highly Recommended." -- Mark Hamill, actor

"Just when you thought one man's tweets might destroy us, Danny Zuker's brilliant collection is here to save the day ... and possibly the country." -- Sandra Bernhard, comedian

"Those who scoffed at Kellyanne Conway's recollection of the Bowling Green Massacre will appreciate Danny Zuker's hilarious Twitter beatdown of our current president. Remember that scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail where the armless and legless Black Knight keeps intoning, ''Tis but a scratch' and 'Just a flesh wound'? That." -- Harlan Coben, author of Tell No One and Don't Let Go
