Trump’s Third and Ultimate Defeat this Week: Judge Rules John Bolton’s Book About President’s Incompetence Can Be Published Next Week


A judge has ruled that John Bolton’s book about Donald Trump’s incompetent and criminal presidency, “The Room Where It Happened,” can be published by Simon & Schuster. Trump lobbied hard to stop publication but the book– which is already in book stores and ready to hit the shelves– will be seen. The book is already number 1 on A lot of people are upset that Bolton didn’t testify in the impeachment and held out to cash in on book sales. I know I feel that way. The New York Times book critic panned the book in a review while the Times pounced all over it excerpting the best parts.

“With hundreds of thousands of copies around the globe — many in newsrooms — the damage is done. There is no restoring the status quo,” wrote Judge Royce C. Lamberth of the Federal District Court of the District of Columbia.

This is Trump’s third defeat this week. First the Supreme Court went against him on LGBTQ rights, then on DACA. Now this. Let’s not forget that Trump’s niece is coming with a book next month that will show how badly he’s treated his own family. But first Bolton describes the “quid pro quo” and all the other things Trump did that were impeachable offenses. Expect to see “The Room Where it Happened” at every beach chair this summer.
