Former President Donald Trump issued a statement today to endorse a book by Fox News’s Jesse Watters titled ‘How I Saved The World.’ Still, it’s quite clear that the twice-impeached one-term president didn’t read the book that he claimed is a “great new book” and lifted a section from the book’s details page on Amazon as if it was his own thoughts. New York Times’s Maggie Haberman saw the endorsement and wrote in a tweet, “I wanna know who wrote this.” Trump’s use of the word ‘interspersed’ had everyone guessing.
“Great new book by Jesse Watters, How I Saved The World,” Trump wrote. And here comes the plagiarized part that reads, “Interspersed are his thoughtful suggestions for overcoming left-wing radicalism, maintaining American democracy, moving beyond aging hippies (like his long-suffering, loving parents), saving the world from social justice warriors and the deep state—all while smirking his way through life in only the nicest way.” Trump ended it with, “Get a copy today, congratulations Jesse!”
LOL. Trump’s latest statement is an endorsement of Jesse Watters’ book that reads like a personal blurb/review from someone who has read the book, but which is actually lifted verbatim from the book’s details page. pic.twitter.com/DKUHgxebMk

The “interspersed” line in Trump’s statement on the Jesse Watters book sounded off, un-Trumpy. That’s because it was copy-pasted from the publisher’s description of the book.
Future solution: Publishers of pro-Trump books need to copy his syntax in their ad copy. pic.twitter.com/qGcWVVMqy6

Trump caught plagiarizing in new statements after finding them suspiciously coherent and well written.🤔
Really a former President of the USA not being able to write a book review?
Wait, I had a brain fart! It’s a TFG play-acting as president, and he can’t even do this right! https://t.co/O5QMhbwPCH

~ his long-suffering parents~
“Oh, how they suffered, suffered like no one ever has before. When I tell you the amount of suffering, SO much. You wouldn’t believe, how lonnnng they suffered, those parents, tremendous parents, really just tremendous people, but they suffered…”

Someday someone is going to have to explain to me why being a “social justice warrior” is a bad thing.

It’s like he operates under the assumption that because HE doesn’t read, that must mean nobody else does either.

Trump’s statement praising Jesse Watters’s new book is literally just Watters’s own description of the book. https://t.co/YGjW6fJzOn

And Jesse tweeted out the former guy’s plagiarized statement.

As funny as that is, it’s also sad that we had a president for four long years that doesn’t read, and yet, he called himself a ‘stable genius,’ and his followers ate it up.
