President Donald Trump has been angrily railing against the new Philip Rucker/Carol Leonnig book, “A Very Stable Genius: Donald J. Trump’s Testing of America,” which is full of White House anecdotes that paint Trump’s presidency in a very negative light. And the president’s ranting and raving about the book, which was written by two long-time Washington Post reporters, is inspiring plenty of mockery online.


On Saturday, Trump tweeted, “Another Fake Book by two third rate Washington Post reporters, has already proven to be inaccurately reported, to their great embarrassment, all for the purpose of demeaning and belittling a President who is getting great things done for our Country, at a record clip. Thank you!”

Trump tweeted about the book again on Monday, posting, “Two stone cold losers from Amazon WP. Almost every story is a made up lie, just like corrupt pol Shifty Schiff, who fraudulently made up my call with Ukraine. Fiction!”

But the more Trump rants about the book, the more he is mocked. Attorney George Conway, a Never Trump conservative, tweeted that according to the book, some people in Trump’s “inner circle” wanted Rudy Giuliani as his attorney general — and asserted, “Well, at least there’s one bullet the nation dodged.”

@PatrickGman said of Trump’s angry reaction to the book, “Your reaction just confirms it’s true,” while @MatthewDicks tweeted, “Donald, Americans know that the more vehemently (look it up) you deny an accusation, the greater the truth of the accusation. You, Donald, are the stone cold loser.” And @Eugeneu wrote, “The only stone cold losers here are Trump and the ones working for him like members of a personality cult. Trump constantly accuses others of unfairness yet refuses to release the full transcripts, text messages, voicemails, emails, and other evidence Congress subpoenaed by law.”

@itsJeffTiedrich wrote, “Hey everybody go buy a copy of A Very Stable Genius and make our crybaby president cry some more.” And @HMeeMaw asserted, “This book must be pretty darned humiliating for Donald. He’s obsessed again.”
