A tweet featuring a book titled Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect, and Admiration, went viral on Wednesday. It looks, upon initial inspection, like an endorsement of the PEOTUS, but it’s actually just a ton of blank pages.

For those wondering if the book is real, yes it is. It’s 206 pages long and available for Prime shipping. You can purchase it on Amazon for the low price of $7.99.

And, yes, as pictured, all of the pages are blank.

Well, not entirely blank. If you look closely, there is fine print at the top of each page. It reads, “These blank pages speak a thousand words, but feel free to use for notes.”

The description on the book’s Amazon page reads: “This book is full of blank pages. Despite years of research, we could not find anything to say on this subject, so please feel free to use this book for notes.” 

So far the book has a 4.5-star average and is racking up rave reviews from satisfied customers.

These customers are satisfied, we mean really satisfied, bigly.


Satisfied in a yuge way.


One customer calls it a Tour de Force.


Another marvels at the quality of its sentences.


Others admire the depth of the research that went into the volume.


And, of course, others are thrilled that Trump’s many good deeds are finally getting the attention they deserve.


So who are the masterminds behind this excellent work of pranksmanship? For now, that remains a mystery. The book is listed in the humor category, and the author page for David King, the “political analyst” credited on its cover, contains no other work. 

While there is a real political analyst named David C. King, he does not appear to be linked to the work.

Regardless, this David King might be a best-seller soon.
