First review of my new book, "The Art of the Steal"

My new book, "The Art of the Steal: How a Chump Became School President," just received its first review. It came from an Australian lad, who gave it 5 out of 5 stars and wrote the following:
"I literally pissed myself laughing! What fantastic summation of the last USA election. I loved the line that Chump 'was as inconsistent as a drunkard at a urinal...' 😂😂😂. Well written and I'm looking forward to your next writing; no pressure hahaha. Cheers Craig"

My new book, "The Art of the Steal: How a Chump Became School President," is now available!

I stumbled upon a writing competition about a month ago (or so). It required a 5,000+ word composition which had yet to be published. For whatever reason, an idea immediately sprung to mind - a satire inspired by the most recent general election - and I went to work. For as skeptical as I was at times, I was able to complete the book by the contest's deadline and it's now available on Kindle for just $0.99. The book's title is The Art of the Steal: How a Chump Became School President, will likely be the shortest and cheapest book I'll ever write (just over 6,000 words), and if you're at all curious, you can look at and/or purchase it here:

Here's a quick summary of the book:

Face-palm quotes brought to you by Tony Dungy and Mike Huckabee

I read two quotes today which I felt the need to share and rebut. They come courtesy of former NFL head coach and current NFL analyst Tony Dungy, and former Arkansas governor and current douchebag Mike Huckabee.

I'll start with Dungy's comment, as he made his thoughts known on why Pro Bowl quarterback Colin Kaepernick has yet to get signed by an NFL team:

"Without that national anthem [protest], someone would have signed him by now. If you're seen as a distraction off the field, for whatever reason, you better have a lot of talent going for you. People will overlook it. They always sign talent if they think he's going to upgrade your team. Michael Vick went through a lot of that and had some teams say no [to signing him]. Andy Reid was the one coach who said, 'Hey, we'll do it. We think enough of him as a player, and we know we're going to take some criticism.' With Joe Mixon, you had the same thing. That's what happens."

Really? Dungy'…

"Quoted" tweets, brought to you by Donald Trump

What is it with Donald Trump and using unnecessary, perhaps meaningless quotations in tweets?

First, on March 4th of this year, he tweeted this:

"Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!"

After receiving backlash for his (false) accusation, press secretary Sean Spicer attempted to partially walk back the president's comments, telling the press, "I think that there's no question that something happened. The question is, is it surveillance, is it a wiretap, or whatever?"

Then on May 12th, The Donald posted this tweet:

"James Comey better hope that there are 'no tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

To this point, there has been no evidence to either prove nor disprove Trump's insinuation. However, given his history with using quotes to broaden a term's definition, several analysts have speculated that, when…
