Books UPDATE: Kristi Noem Book of Lies Opens at Number 44, Drops to Number 107 on Amazon, Beaten Easily by MSNBC’s Jen Psaki


UPDATE: “No Way Back” will find no way back to the top of the amazon charts. Within a day the tome that describes the shooting of a dog has dropped to number 107.

keep refreshing to see how quickly it falls off the best seller list…


Kristi Noem’s book, “No Way Back,” has had a soft open on the amazon best seller list.

The book — filled with proven lies — has debuted on Amazon at number 44. It was easily beaten by a book written by a more respected public figure.

MSNBC’s Jen Psaki hit the chart at number 4 with “Say More: Lessons from Work, The White House, and the World.”

Somewhere in between are new memoirs from Whoopi Goldberg and Tom Selleck.

Noem’s book is doomed, I’m afraid. The publisher announced they were removing a section of the book “at the author’s request.” This was because Noem was caught in a lie about meeting North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un.

“No Way Back” is also the right title since Noem tells the story of shooting her dog when it misbehaved. She is loathed widely, even by conservatives who love their pets and cannot imagine committing such an atrocity. There is indeed No Way Back for the South Dakota governor.
