Sad but true.

I don’t really know what I was expecting when picking out this audiobook.  I knew it was anti-Trump.  But I thought it would just be like a talk radio rant, in the same vein as a Rush Limbaugh rant or Sean Hannity rant, or any other career political broadcaster.  But what made me sad was that Olbermann simply took Donald Trump’s tweets and repeated them.

Starting from 45’s campaign in 2016 all the way through the summer of his first year as president, Olbermann would take the tweets and relate them to news stories at the time.  The most interesting were the tweets related to Russia and the buildup of the investigation.  The tweets were nothing but denials at first, but then built up to many saying the equivalent of 45 saying, “I never said that.”  I guess technically he didn’t, he tweeted it.

This collection combined with the Olbermann “Op-Ed” sections creates a unique view of the first two years of 45’s assault on America.  This is something that could only be done in this information age.  Gone are the days when a President could deny saying something, and hoping the world forgot.  The problem today is that with the internet fact checking is easier when you can go back at your leisure and actually watch the video of the quote or situation in question.

Yeah, Olberman does deliver his book in a bit of a rant state of mind, but I think that made the book much more fun and a lot less depressing.  Keep in mind this book has its humorous moments, but it is not a joke.

Lots of yelling, lots of questions, lots of facts.
