Donald Trump Jr., in quarantine since girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle tested positive for the coronavirus, says he’s used the time to finish a book that he’ll self-publish the week of the Republican convention, at the end of August.
What he’s saying: Don Jr., whose controversial blasts connect with President Trump’s base, told me in a phone interview that “Liberal Privilege” will be his effort to paint a picture of Joe Biden and his record that the press ignores.
Trump, 42, — whose first book, “Triggered” was a No. 1 N.Y. Times bestseller (with an asterisk) — said he plans to self-publish his new hardcover as “a shot across the bow” to traditional publishers.
As most of you surely know, that “asterisk” came due to tens of thousands of bulk sales to GOP and right wing groups. Standard procedure for high-profile books by wingnuts, but Junior, of course, screeched that the Times was singling him out.
