New in PJ Media:
Donald Trump is coming out with a new book, and even the advance publicity surrounding it is already exposing more of the seemingly endless hypocrisy and dishonesty of the Left. Given that Trump is Leftists’ hated and feared Emmanuel Goldstein figure (Goldstein, kids, was the dissident who was the focus of the state-sponsored “Two Minutes Hate” in 1984), it’s only to be expected that the book would already be driving wokesters crazy, and there are even rumblings of legal action against Trump. Hey, they couldn’t frame him for Russian collusion, Ukraine shenanigans, or the Jan. 6 “insurrection,” but now they’ve got him over his book! The walls are closing in!
The publisher, Winning Team Publishing, says that the book, Letters to Trump, is a “colorful photo book” that “captures the incredible, and oftentimes private correspondence, between President Donald J. Trump and some of the biggest names in history throughout the past 40 years!” These include, we’re told, letters to The Donald from Richard Nixon and Princess Diana, as well as some unlikely pen pals such as Hillary Clinton and Kim Jong Un. According to an Axios report Thursday, the book also includes letters from Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Mario Cuomo, Arnold Palmer, Jay Leno, Liza Minnelli, Regis Philbin (who began his with “My Dear Trumpster”), and Oprah Winfrey. It’s the letter from Oprah that simultaneously reveals the Left at its most two-faced, and that could mean a fresh round of trouble for the Trumpster.
Oprah wrote warmly and effusively in 2000 to a man whom she clearly regarded as a friend. Trump had written in his book The America We Deserve that if he ran for president, Oprah would be his “first choice for Vice President.” He added: “Americans respect and admire Oprah for her intelligence and caring.” Oprah wrote back to the future president: “Donald — I received the book excerpt. I have to tell you that your comments made me a little weepy. It’s one thing to try and live a life of integrity — still another to have people like yourself notice. Thank you. Oprah. Too bad we’re not running for office. What a team!”
Yeah, what a team. In April 2017, however, when her old friend actually was president of the United States, Oprah was singing a completely different tune. The Daily Beast wrote at that time: “Oprah Winfrey knew she stepped in it after tweeting a hopeful message about Donald Trump’s presidency earlier this week—to the vocal dismay of the internet.” Oprah had tweeted a photo of Trump with Barack Obama, writing over it: “Everybody take a deep breath! #HopeLives!”
