Bob Woodward's book is a runaway hit

"Woodward book breaks 93-year publishing record"

Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," sold more than 750,000 copies through its first day of release, the most for any title in Simon & Schuster history, according to the 94-year-old publisher.

The investigative book by the veteran Watergate reporter, who has written books about every administration dating back to President Nixon, was powered by excerpts published before the book's public release Tuesday and President Trump's public rejection of it. Trump called the book "a con on the public" consisting of quotes that are "made up frauds" designed to boost Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

The 750,000-plus copies sold combines sales of print copies, ebooks and audiobooks, according to a statement by Simon & Schuster.

4. I'm still trying to figure out

How you can quote someone who denies it...and then tell them you have an anonymous source that confirmed it



This is why Trump says the (Fake) Media is the enemy of the People

This book is a joke

5. Makes one wonder

How many people bought it outside of DC & NY? Probably negligible. Most of the DC insider books seem to be only sold amongst themselves.

6. Highest pre-order and only among Simon & Schuster history

and that is also based on a press release from the company.

That company has joined and divided so many times. I'm sure their claim is somewhat misleading.

I'm going with FAKENEWS.



The only toadies that pre-ordered it are crying whinebabies like those at the DU who will bite on ANYTHING that might just really really give Hillary the presidency.


Oh, and how much of that profit went into Glenn Beck's pocket???

9. I most definitely believe it.

There are 100 million of these mental defects running around with the qualifications to vote, and they have lost touch with reality.
Therese are the same lunatics that donated 500 million dollars to a rich, criminal FBI agent who tried to throw a national election.
They are truly fucked in the head, every last one of them. These people would spend their social security checks on obama turds if he put them up for sale.

13. Someone has found a market in the DUmmies...

"The only similar book that has sold as well as "Fear" this year is "Fire and Fury," which painted a similarly disturbing portrait of the president.

On Amazon, "Fear" is the No. 3 overall top seller for the year. No. 2 is the "Last Week Tonight" parody of a children's book about the Pence family bunny. And No. 1 is Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury."
