No Way Back Now: Kristi Noem Book Deader than Her Dog After One Week, Falls to Number 1,446 on Amazon


There is really No Way Back now.

After one week in release, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem’s book, “No Way Back,” is completely dead.

This is also 10 days after her regrettable interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

The book has dropped to number 1,446 on amazon. For contrast, another book released last Tuesday — Jen Psaki’s “Say More” — is at number 52.

Noem revealed in her own book and the audio version that she killed her own dog in cold blood. She also claimed to have met North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un while visiting South Korea. That was a lie, and the section had to be removed by the publisher, Center Street, from the ebook version.

Noem thought this book would help launch her campaign to being Donald Trump’s running mater this fall. But with the book dead, and her reputation in tatters, that would seem unlikely now.
