David Cay Johnston
Author of one of the first damning books on Donald Trump as a political figure, The Making of Donald Trump, he is here with an all-too-timely new work, It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America (Simon & Schuster).
”If there’s such a genre as anti-hagiography, Johnston (The Making of Donald Trump, 2016, etc.) adds materially to it with this new polemic against the sitting president. If the Trump administration can boast of an accomplishment to date, writes the author, it is that ‘thanks to Trump the mentally ill now have virtually the same gun rights as the sane.’ One might think this a questionable contribution to the commonwealth, but, Johnston argues with a fine and steely sense of indignation, that is precisely the point ... Thoroughly depressing—but urgent, necessary reading.” - Kirkus Reviews.
