|Donald Trump Jr.|
Congratulations to Donald Trump Jr. for making it to the top of the New York Times best-seller list.
"Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us," debuted as No. 1 on the hardcover nonfiction list. That's quite an achievement for the budding author DTJ.
Junior's accomplishment though may have received a boost from bulk buys from his good buddies at the Republican National Committee.
"Triggered" is the only book among the Top 15 best-sellers, which include "The Book of Gutsy Women" by Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, "Blowout" by Rachel Maddow," and "Catch and Kill" by Ronan Farrow," to receive a dagger symbol.
The New York Post's Page 6 notes the "deadly dagger" is a rare penalty, awarded by NYT editors when they suspect "flagrant fouls," such as large purchases by special interest groups, institutions or bulk buys.
The RNC has been using Triggered as a fundraising incentive. Though it denies bulk purchases, a spokesperson told the Post that the RNC has been buying "Triggered" like crazy because potential donors want to read all about Junior's political hopes and dreams.
President Trump maintains that his election was "rigged." Junior's election to the top of the NYT best-seller list also may be rigged.
Like father, like son.
Impeachment is not expected to ruin many Thanksgiving dinners, according to a poll released today by Bospar technology PR firm.
Okay, but it is only Day 2 of the impeachment hearings.
Only 11.9 percent of people believe Thanksgiving will be overshadowed by impeachment talks, according to the survey. Forty percent responded "not much," when asked if the impeachment of Trump would district from the holiday experience.
Trump though, won't be able to remove the cloud of impeachment that hovers over his head. The poll found that 40.6 percent of respondents say the impeachment proceedings aren't going to go away as long as Trump is in the White House.
On a different note, the #ThanksChristmas2019 Study shows strong support for honoring Sarah Josepha Hall, who led the effort to make Thanksgiving a national holiday. Writer, editor, activist Hall died in 1879 at the age of 89.
A national holiday for Hall ranks on the top of the honors chosen by Bospar's respondents. [Hall already has a feast day—April 30—on the liturgical calendar of the Episcopal Church.}
Other choices: naming a dish after her, putting Hall's image on US currency and naming a lamb after her.
Hall wrote the classic children's poem, "Mary Had a Little Lamb."
Thomas Edison immortalized "Mary's Lamb" (original title) by speaking its opening lines as the first speech ever recorded on his newly created phonograph.
Happy Thanksgiving, Sarah.
