Postby Marie » Tue Apr 18, 2017 1:11 pm

Announcement from Penguin/Random House publishers:

Blue Rider Press to publish Keith Olbermann’s anti-Trump book of commentaries

Keith Olbermann, the award-winning commentator, reporter, writer, and news and sports anchor, will release a book of commentaries about President Donald Trump and the Trump Administration, it was announced today.

Based on Olbermann’s hugely successful GQ web series The Resistance, the book is entitled TRUMP IS F*CKING CRAZY: (This Is Not a Joke) and is to be published in October 2017 by Blue Rider Press. North American rights were acquired by Blue Rider Press president and publisher David Rosenthal from Andrew Blauner, of Blauner Books Literary Agency.

In TRUMP IS F*CKING CRAZY, Olbermann takes Donald Trump apart and confronts his Administration with both journalistic acuity and his classic in-your-face humor. Olbermann’s current commentary vehicle, The Resistance, averages more than 3.8M viewers per video and is widely shared on social media.

The 100th episode of the combined GQ The Closer/The Resistance series airs today.

You find out what someone is really like in "battle," and Olbermann is who you want to be in a foxhole with, Patrick said. "On the air, we had each others' backs," said Olbermann.

Kirkus reviews 'Trump Is F*cking Crazy'

Postby Marie » Wed Sep 06, 2017 3:22 pm

Kirkus Review of
TRUMP IS F*CKING CRAZY (This Is Not a Joke)

Sept 3, 2017

A VETERAN LIBERAL JOURNALIST excoriates Donald Trump in a collection of commentaries from the Resistance, his web series hosted by GQ.

Beginning with the 2016 presidential campaign and concluding in late June 2017, these pieces pound away at a series of complaints -- some profoundly serious -- about Trump, complaints ranging from what Olbermann sees as Trump’s habitual lying, the Russian involvement in the election, the attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the last-minute involvement of the FBI in the defeat of Hillary Clinton, the firing of James Comey, and the contortions exhibited by Trump officials who defend him through everything.

The author pretty much exhausts the thesaurus in his name-calling and he argues that Trump is a modern Nero; Napoleon; a latter-day Nixon. The author also has harsh things to say about the media (looking for opportunities to call Trump “presidential”), Republicans, and Trump supporters of all stripes (Kellyanne Conway is “Kellyanne Con Job”). Olbermann is fond of some rhetorical devices: an ancient one, anaphora (the repetition of key words or phrases at the beginning of a sentence or paragraph: “Who else but a jackass…”), as well as a more recent one (The. Placement. Of. A. Period. At. The. End. Of. Each. Word.).

Olbermann is also not above self-promotion of his own -- he mentions the number of visitors to his site and credits himself for a few other good things -- but for the most part, his focus is on the man he despises and on the minions who support him. The pieces are generally short and sharply focused on something that has happened near the time of composition -- Trump’s post-election talk to the CIA, the testimony of Sally Yates -- and the prose is consistently aggressive and often abrasive.

Unrelenting invective for Trump haters, who will love it; Trump lovers won’t read it.

Can't wait to go out this week and get this book! He dedicated it to his parents,
"In memory of Ted and Marie Olbermann who would be way more pissed off than their son is."

LOL, and Keith gets in a dig with this fan letter Trump sent him in 2014 -- "Keep up the great work."

Wonder what he's thinking now? :wink:

Keith's interview w/Steve Cochran on WGN Radio 10/20/2017

Postby Marie » Fri Oct 20, 2017 2:53 pm

You'll want to hear this --

WGN RADIO:

Keith Olbermann might be the only person more annoyed by President Trump than Steve Cochran.

Olbermann has written a book titled ‘President Trump is F*ing Crazy’. He has documented all of the things that President Trump has said since a few months before the election. Draw your own conclusions.
