    Yea, sure... He was President of the Harvard Law Review and singularly never published anything in it. That was a unique first for the President of the Review...

    He had his books ghost written.

    His Presidential reading lists were short in length, short on depth, and mostly popular tripe.

    Here's his list for 2020

    He's one of the shallowest pseudo-intellectuals on the US scene today.

    What evidence do you have that Obama's books were ghost-written?

    And the books on that list aren't "tripe." You fuckers don't even read books, so maybe you should pipe down on this topic, Billy Bob.

    Default Will There Be a Trump Presidential Library? Don’t Count On It.

    If you understand how presidential libraries are created, it’s hard to see how Trump ever gets it done.

    For months, as the end of Donald Trump’s term approached, historians and journalists have been playing a speculation game: What will Donald Trump’s presidential library be like?

    “A shrine to his ego,” predicted a historian in the Washington Post. Others imagine a theme park, or a “full MAGA” exercise in rebranding his presidency. One report said he’s trying to raise an astonishing $2 billion to build it.

    Here’s another, more likely possibility: There won’t be one.

    It’s not because he doesn’t read books (presidential libraries aren’t that kind of library), and not because his presidency ended in a shocking insurrection at the U.S. Capitol fanned by Trump himself, resulting in a second impeachment. Other presidents have stepped down in borderline disgrace—Richard Nixon resigned; Herbert Hoover lost in a landslide, blamed for the Great Depression—and still got their libraries.

    Trump likely won’t even manage to build a private library, such as the one Nixon finally created for himself. Or the “center” for which Barack Obama has had great difficulty even breaking ground, which will lack a government presence, a research facility, or archives.

    Presidential libraries are complicated. And if you understand how they work—and how Trump himself works—it’s nearly impossible to imagine him actually pulling it off. The consequences of this failure, for Trump and his supporters, will go beyond just a building: Without a library, a center or some kind of institute to shore up his reputation, his legacy as a president and his place in history are likely to fall even further out of his control.

    In fact, books are fading away. They are replaced with online reading. Future libraries are in doubt anyway You can have Art if the Deal in boxes and sell them. Trump can make money off his ghost-written books.
    He can have a showroom with the Apprentice running on a loop. Just pay an entrance fee.
    Maybe they can build it as an annex to that Creationism museum. Guaranteed draw of dozens of the gullible daily!

    The list looks to be mostly non-fiction and about current events, history, and politics. I'd have a hard time slogging through that. But not as hard as most of the Cult45ers. lol

    "There is no question former President Trump bears moral responsibility. His supporters stormed the Capitol because of the unhinged falsehoods he shouted into the world’s largest megaphone," McConnell wrote. "His behavior during and after the chaos was also unconscionable, from attacking Vice President Mike Pence during the riot to praising the criminals after it ended."

    Yea, like everything else Obama's done in life other than get elected or graduate from school, he expects somebody else to do this too. Likelihood is it never gets built...

    Editors of the Harvard Law Review are not allowed to publish under their own name. Apparently, you know little about it, or you would know that. It is impossible to know what parts of the editor's writing he wrote.

    I doubt it. trump paid someone to write his books for him. Obama was no one, so came to prominence by writing.

    Too bad his actual track record says otherwise. Obama was and is a good orator reading a speech. He has the ability, like any good salesman, to sell himself well. I don't fault or deny him that. But where he collapses into worthlessness is actually getting things done. The guy is an absolute slacker. He has no ability to organize or plan projects or the drive to get them done. Instead he relies on others trying to motivate them with his charisma alone. That can work in the short term, but in the long term it will fail, and did fail him repeatedly both as President and in previous roles.
