#TrumpBookReport: A Twitter Political/Literature Sensation


If you’ve been lucky enough to have been stranded on a desert island the past few months, you may have missed the trash fire that has become the United States Presidential campaign.

Last night capped the last of three debates, and it was a doozy. There was the standard name-calling, loose interpretation of facts, and lots of interruptions. And as has become the norm, the Twittersphere was abuzz with real-time commentary, criticism, and meme-ifying on what the candidates were saying. Some of the comments were funny, some critical, and a significant number just expressed abject horror at how messy the whole election had become.

But at 10:23 PM, minutes before the end of the debate, all of that changed. Antonio French, a Saint Louis Alderman and founder of an after-school tutoring program, fired off this gem of a tweet.


With that, #TrumpBookReport was born. In less than 24 hours, hundreds of tweets have streamed in from political junkies and literary fans alike. Here are a few of our favorites:
