American Tantrum: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Archives Book Review

It is a Presidential tradition that every former President develops his own archives for future generations after he leaves office.

American Tantrum: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Archives, by Anthony Atamanuik and Neil Casey, is based on the Comedy Central program, The President Show.

The premise of the book is that the fictionalized version of you know who has decided to put his Presidential Archive together while he is still in office. The premise of the book is a series of satirical and fictional interviews and recordings taking the reader from his early days in Queens to his current position as President Of The United States.

 

Written in the same voice that Anthony Atamanuik uses on The President Show, this book is hilarious. It also helps the reader, at least from my perspective, to release any tension or anxiety they may have about you know who.

I recommend it.

Will & Grace and The #MeToo Movement

Men using their power to use women for sex has existed for a millennia, if not longer.

Last week’s episode of Will & Grace addressed the #Metoo movement as only Will & Grace can.

In the episode, Grace (Debra Messing), is spending the day with her father, Martin (Robert Klein). While stopping at a restaurant, Grace reveals that she was sexually assaulted by a friend of her father’s whom she worked for in high school.

I loved this episode. Kudos to the writing team, Debra Messing and Robert Klein for addressing the issue of sexual assault in a way that hits home. The man who assaulted Grace is not a powerful politician or a movie mogul. He is simply an older man who thought that he had the right to sexually assault a teenage girl.

In the pantheon of Will & Grace episodes, this one is for the books. The writers could have hit the viewer over the head. But instead, they told the story of a young girl’s assault and how after it still affected her years after it happened.
