It’s normal for journalists and historians to write about a particular politician or about a particular Presidential administration. But that normally takes place years later and is usually written about in hindsight. The number of books about you know who while he is still in power says something his Presidency.
The latest book to add to the list is Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House. Written by former The Apprentice contestant and White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, the book is part confessional and part memoir. She starts off by giving the reader a brief overview of her childhood and life before meeting you know who. The rest of the book concentrates on her brief stint working in the White House, revealing behind the scenes facts that the average American would not have normal access to.
Depending on the reader’s perspective, Mrs. Newman is either a disgruntled ex-employee who is using her fame to smear her former boss or she has found the moral conviction to reveal the truth. Either way, the book is an eye-opening insight into our current Presidential administration.
I recommend it.
