It's almost like we're waking up from a 4-year nightmare and the Trump presidency never happened.


Barack Obama’s “A Promised Land”

Barack Obama’s “A Promised Land” sold nearly 890,000 copies in the U.S. and Canada in its first 24 hours, putting it on track to be the bestselling presidential memoir in modern history. The first-day sales, a record for Penguin Random House, includes preorders, e-books and audio.

The only book by a former White House resident to come close to the early pace of “A Promised Land” is the memoir by Obama’s wife, Michelle Obama, whose “Becoming” sold 725,000 copies in North America its first day and has topped 10 million worldwide since its release in 2018.

“Becoming” is still so in demand that Crown, which publishes both Obamas and reportedly paid around $60 million for their books, has yet to release a paperback.

That's great news.
I know he's been out of work for sometime, and this should help him and his family.

Does any publisher have the balls to publish Trump's memoirs, which will be filled with lies, pettiness, and self-serving garbage?

Maybe for 2024 when his campaign can buy all the copies. Didn't they do something like that with Jrs book. Oh yea...,🤣🤣🤣

Obama's book selling so quickly is proof of the cult of personality in the democratic party. People worship the man despite his failed policies and failure to bring change for African Americans over his 8 year reign.

You may as well read it now, Comrad Tiny. It's required reading in The Camp. Anything less than a 90 on the quiz is a severe beating and 50 Hail Obama's.

Memorize some quotes from Michelle's book too. You'll need to recite one to receive your evening meal of gruel.

He was president of the whole country, not just African Americans. Tell me exactly what he should have done for African Americans. Come on lets hear it.

I wasn't a big fan, Obama was Republican lite. Well a Regan, Bush, Bush, kind of Republican lite, have to qualify it now that Republicans went off the deep end.
The protection of pre-existing conditions alone is more than anything Trump has done.

Cultists generally don't care about reading a memoir. Cultists sabotage themselves and drink the proverbial kool aid. Like dotard righties are doing with Trump.

Lol yes people buying a former president's book is a sign of a cult of personality. Living and dying by a presidents tweets and going to "rallys" is just fine? I'll choose the people who read books.
