Now that Trump has won the Republican nomination, amidst continued controversy about his character, experience, and danger for America, this is the perfect time for a story about a series of just released lighthearted humorous books about Trump and the election. The book series began as Huffington Post columns by sociologist and social commentator Gini Graham Scott, Ph.D., who has published over 50 books with traditional publishers, including The New Middle Ages, about how inequality today has parallels with life in medieval times and is similarly leading the U.S. to even more upheavals.
Now Scott has written 2016 ELECTION FOLLIES, which combines four short humor books on Trump’s rise to power in the Republican Party, with an appeal to Democrats and Republicans alike. In fact, Scott’s company is sending announcements about the books to over 500 Democratic Clubs and Committees around the country, and plans to similarly let over 300 Republican Clubs and Committees know about the book. All of the leaders of both parties are also being contacted.
2016 ELECTION FOLLIES is an expansion of a series that began with 2016 Election Fairy Tales, with tales like The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Trump and Chicken Little and the Boy Who Cried Trump. This led to the follow-up book, 2016 Election Monsters, Myths, and Mayhem, with tales which compared Donald Trump to classic monsters from mythology, such as the Cyclops, Medusa, Chimera, Minotaur, and the dragon fought by St. George. Then, as the fighting between Trump and Ted Cruz became like a battle of little kids, this inspired The Battles of Donnie and Teddy, a series of children’s books for adults, with Donnie and Teddy fighting in a sandbox, in a playground, at a lake, and at a birthday party. Finally, the series concludes with The Battles of the Trumposaurus and 26 Other Extinct Beasts, in which Trump is compared in humorous cartoons to ancient dinosaurs, flying reptiles, birds, and mammals, such as the Saber Tooth Trump, Tryannosaurus Trump, and Homo Trumpus. Plus all of these books are audiobooks on Audible, as well as paperback and ebooks on Amazon. All the books have also been combined into a single book called the 2016 ELECTION FOLLIES, and a website for the series has been set up at www.2016electionfollies.com, and a Facebook page was recently launched at www.facebook.com/2016electionfairytalesandmyths.
While the books are lighthearted books designed to appeal to both sides of the aisle – and even Trump might enjoy the satire, perhaps they might even have some influence on the outcome of the election, as readers notice parallels between what’s happening today and traditional fairy tales, ancient myths, children’s books for adults, and comparison of Trump to a variety of extinct beasts from dinosaurs like the Trumposaurus to early humans like the Neandertrump.
