Oh this will sell like hotcakes.

An anonymous senior government official who wrote an excoriating op-ed column describing Donald Trump’s time in office, and detailing an internal “resistance” movement to thwart the president, has written a book that will be released in November.

The book, titled A Warning, will expand on the anonymous article which was published by the New York Times in September 2018, it emerged on Tuesday.

That article, which the Times said was written by a current Trump administration official, presented a shocking description of Trump’s presidency.

The official described Trump as making “half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions” and said a group of Trump appointees were working on “thwarting Mr Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office”.

The Washington Post and CNN reported that the book will be published on 19 November. A draft press release to accompany the launch, obtained by CNN, described the book as: “Picking up from where those first words of warning left off, this explosive book offers a shocking, first-hand account of President Trump and his record.”

At this point I am not sure how much more shocked we can get. 

I have to say that I am fairly surprised that this guy remained close to the Trump administration when there was such a concerted effort to flush him out. 

I think it would make for a much more intersting book if he were to out himself and then describe how he remained in the White House undetected. 

Having said that I will still probably buy this book if for no other reason than to encourage other folks close to this administration to share their stories as well.
