‘Only Book Trump Has Read in Years’: Twitter Users Light POTUS Up For Promoting Blank Book
Today, during one of his early-morning Tweetstorms, Donald Trump promoted what seemed like an off-brand book.
A great book for your reading enjoyment: “REASONS TO VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS” by Michael J. Knowles.

As it turns out, Reasons to Vote for Democrats is one of those novelty gag books with no words in it. Funny stuff!
Twitter users were not happy to see the President promoting a partisan book that mocks members of the other party, but they were especially annoyed by how tacky the thing is.
So they made jokes at his expense.
Small-minded, empty-headed, vindictive and childish.
And that’s before 9:00 on Monday morning. We still have a whole week to get through. https://t.co/mjPei0SSj3

So many jokes to be made here about our non-reading POTUS recommending a book filled with blank pages. https://t.co/K8ZbN7tXfJ

Btw… most voters in this country voted for Democrats, not for you.
Seems like you’re still bitter about it. Sad! https://t.co/cOPdUxVLG6

It seems fitting that the only book President Trump has ever enjoyed reading is made up entirely of blank pages. https://t.co/uL3GcgEgFH

Recommending a book that’s literally blank on the inside is going to reinforce certain ideas people have of the president https://t.co/mjkps9d4fr

Once upon a time we had Presidents who tried to bring the country together, not tear it apart. https://t.co/pXOml68ft8

it’s a blank book.
there are no reasons.
why the president is promoting this is harder to explain https://t.co/gao0RFeCJY

A great book entitled “REASONS TO VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS” is just blank pages inside the cover. Much like a book of my achievements as POTUS. https://t.co/aV4mWH0lWv

this is an anti-Dem book full of blank pages…probably the only book Trump has “read” in years https://t.co/1Secd87VRo

In the rest of this morning’s tweets, Trump railed against the media and Barack Obama and praised (again) Fox & Friends
