    The first time I saw this book in a Goodreads feed I thought it was actually serious, if but for a minute, and I was genuinely flabbergasted at the concept. This book can’t be for real. Poetry? Trump? No, you're having a laugh. And thankfully Rob Sears is. He’s pieced together all manner of quotes from Trump over the years. Quotes from twitter, from television interviews and radio broadcasts, it’s all come together to form a rather random bunch of poetry. And some of them are gold. “I won!

Well, we’ve had some disasters, but this is the worst” So this is a good way to spend thirty minutes laughing at the horrifyingly stupid nature of the man who has, somehow, become president of the United States. And all the quotes are sourced back to thier orginal material- this is all the real deal here (unfortunately he did say all these things!) though they've been twisted a little and put out of context which only highlights his stupidity further.

    My initial reaction when I heard about this book: Well, I don’t know a lot about poetry, but that sounds like a bad idea. Russell Brand’s take on reading the comment that “Ian Huntley’s voodoo dolls should be taken away and burnt!” specifically sprang to mind for some reason. It’s smart, you can finish on the bus, and it’s good for a laugh. That’s what my friend said when she lent it to me. She’s right.

If nothing else, “People of the world, thank you” from the 2017 inaugural address by the 45th President of the United States will stay with me for a long time. “You can do anything” is a creepy juxtaposition of the Access Hollywood tape, 2005 and Trump’s Proclamation on National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention in 2017. So, you get the idea. Every line annotated for the source material tweet, speech or interview. Sears is working with more stringent requirements than Dr. Seuss did when he wrote Green Eggs and Ham using only 50 words. I still don’t know a lot about poetry. But, “I’ve never seen scissors that look this beautiful before” seems to fit.

I liked the book because I think it speaks to a much deeper issue: supporters of President Trump will look at this book and claim that it is contextually constructed to make him look bad; opponents will say the opposite - that the 'crystallization' of the lines shows a very egotistically motivated individual who is now the most powerful man in the world.

    I happened upon this book in a quaint bookstore on a recent trip to London. No, Donald Trump is not a poet, at least, not as far as I know. This book was created by Rob Sears using actual words or phrases Donald has spoken, written or tweeted to form poems. It is what's known in England as tongue-in-cheek humor and it is slyly funny.

    "I am the least racist person there is; I've always had a great relationship with the blacks; I remained strong for Tiger Woods during his difficult period; Oprah, I love Oprah. Oprah would always be my first choice; Kanye West - I love him; I think Eminem is fantastic and most people think I would like Eminem; And did you know my name is in more black songs than any other name in hip-hop; You are the racist, not I." Rob Sears is an American hero who lives in Great Britain. At some point either during o "I am the least racist person there is; I've always had a great relationship with the blacks; I remained strong for Tiger Woods during his difficult period; Oprah, I love Oprah. Oprah would always be my first choice; Kanye West - I love him; I think Eminem is fantastic and most people think I would like Eminem; And did you know my name is in more black songs than any other name in hip-hop; You are the racist, not I." Rob Sears is an American hero who lives in Great Britain. At some point either during or just after the presidential election of 2016, Sears started combing through the treasure trove of Donald J. Trump's tweets, "Playboy" magazine articles, "Howard Stern Show" interview transcripts and other media clips. He would parsed out a quote here and there and started turning the president's bullshit into beautiful poetry. Haiku, long-form, short-form, rhyming -- you name it and Sears builds it out of Trumps own beautiful words. The best words, you know? Each poem -- and there are dozens -- is a work of art. Consider, "I make this promise." "I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States; I promise I will never be in a bicycle race; I will not rename the White House; And I promise not to talk about your massive plastic surgeries that didn't work; I promise. Thank you." The first part of that poem is, of course, a direct quote from one year ago -- January 20, 2017. The second part is a snide remark directed at John Kerry, who broke his leg a couple of years ago while biking. The third line was taken from a Larry King interview in 1999. The fourth line is a nasty tweet direct at...Cher. And the final line is the closing to a speech given in South Carolina back in 2015. You get the idea -- take a line here, take a line there and fit things together into a masterpiece. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Were it a longer book, it would have garnered a five-star review. But it left me wanting more so badly that I had no choice but to pull it down to four stars. My favorite poem, by far, is "Look at this baby." Five sources contributed to it but, knowing Trump as we do now, you can absolutely imagine this being one, cohesive, rambling, presidential diatribe -- can you not? I'll leave you with it, and extend to you an invitation purchase this tome, read away your anger and achieve some level of catharsis during this difficult political season. "Look at this baby; That is a great, beautiful baby; It's young and beautiful and healthy; I love babies; What a baby; What a beautiful baby. -- Okay, that's enough; You can get the baby out of here; I like kids; I won't do anything to take care of them; They're ugly, little and don't work."

    Not a lot to say about this book of poetry, which was a popular stocking stuffer this year it seems, alongside my dad's received copy of The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America, and the "People of Wal-Mart" adult colouring book I got (which for the record, I will not be using).

More of a novelty book than anything else, what can be said for it? The Beautiful Poetry of Donald Trump knows its audience - fans of Trump will be offended or mildly bothered, those who hate Trump will find it the funniest book on the planet, and those who are more or less indifferent, like myself, will forget about it a few days after opening it. Basically, Sears has taken many of Trump's more infamous social media comments and verbal statements, rehashing them as a sort of modern freeform poetry (or rather, parody of poetry). Rupi Kaur, eat your heart out. Why isn't Trump listed as the author, anyway? He said all these things, Sears only pasted them together. Whatever. Anyway, I'm not sure I would say that I found any of these poems particularly humorous, but in our ever-tenuous, polarized political climate where we all must carry politics around with us every day like some overstuffed backpack glued to our shoulders 24/7, The Beautiful Poetry of Donald Trump was right on time, and will no doubt be popular until Trump becomes irrelevant.

    Very short and funny book of poems composed of real quotes by Trump (with sources provided). I am the best I predicted Apple's stock fall I will build a great, great wall I build buildings that are 94 storeys tall My hands aren't - are they small? The author also provides a sensitive analysis of Trump's work in the foreword, making it a brilliant satire, only rarely letting the open critique shine through.

This person really IS the president of USA. Weird. Deviant Anthony Weiner: a Haiku Very sick puppy A screamer and a shouter He will never change The book is a one-trick pony, but amusing and scary nonetheless.

    Many years ago, the President of the United States was a moron who couldn't navigate from one end of a sentence to the other without cocking the whole thing up like a right eejit. People made fun of this, and published many volumes of the 'wisdom' or 'poetry' of George W Bush's fatuous statements, pretending to take them seriously. Compared to that, this book is lazy. See, the problem with trying to do the same thing with Donald Trump is that most of what Donald Trump says is not prima facie moron Many years ago, the President of the United States was a moron who couldn't navigate from one end of a sentence to the other without cocking the whole thing up like a right eejit. People made fun of this, and published many volumes of the 'wisdom' or 'poetry' of George W Bush's fatuous statements, pretending to take them seriously. Compared to that, this book is lazy. See, the problem with trying to do the same thing with Donald Trump is that most of what Donald Trump says is not prima facie moronic. Trump's pronouncements are, give or take the odd typo, largely comprehensible. They are objectionable not because he's unable to appreciate basic grammar, or because some clauses are total non sequiturs, or because he says the opposite of what he means, but because he's an arsehole. There's something inherently amusing about "we are living in an age of potential mental losses" or "put food on your family!" or "there are people who want to destroy America - and I wish them well!" or "Will the highways of the internet become more few?" that just isn't there in "grab them by the pussy!" or "they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists" or the like. [Trump is, of course, prone to talking incomprehensible nonsense. But that usually only becomes evident on the larger scale - his sentences ramble through unrelated topic, and he loses his train of thought every couple of seconds, so that many of his speeches are essentially unhinged stream-of-consciousness ranting. But most of the individual clauses do make sense, they just have no business being where they are.] So instead, what Rob Sears does here is take random sentences from Trump, and juxtapose them in order to put something funnier into the President's mouth. This is, basically, cheating - you could take literally any public figure and do exactly the same thing with their public statements. And yet... it is, in its own way, an art form. It opens up possibilities. If you can pick any sentence he's ever said, stripped of context, and stack them together in any order, surely you can make some beautiful poetry? Surely you can use that to make some sort of a point? It's poetry with an extra dimension - you can juxtapose the meaning imposed by the context you give a quote with the context that we know it originally had (and, to be fair, every clause is diligently given a citation). The result is disappointing - perhaps its greatest achievement is just in demonstrating how easy it is to write underwhelming modern poetry. It fails to impress, because it doesn't try - it settles for the easy joke, oh wow, Donald Trump is weird and stupid and evil. Which he is, of course, but if you stop when you hit that mark, you're not making full use of your resources. [it's also disappointing that the most objectionable single sentence, "Vagina is expensive" is the only one that ISN'T a quote from Trump, but only a quote from Howard Stern's description of what Trump might have said to him once. Again, when he's said so many things on the record, this feels like cheating.] ----------- That said, there are some good poems here, and very tellingly most of the best poems are ones where the author has actually tried to accomplish something, rather than juxtaposed two random sentences out of context. The best by far is one of the few with a clear rationale: You can do anything simply juxtaposes a series of quotes, entirely in context, from two different speeches, in order to chilllingly demonstrate the President's hypocrisy: You can do anything At the heart of our country is the emphatic belief that every person has unique and infinite value (I just start kissing them) On average there are more than 300,000 instances of rape or other sexual assault that afflict our neighbors and loved ones every year (It's like a magnet) We all share the responsibility to reduce and ultimately end sexual violence (I don't even wait) Recent resarch has demonstrated the effectiveness of changing social norms that accept or allow indifferance to sexual violence (You can do anything) Our families, schools and communities must encourage respect for women (Grab them by the pussy) Together, we can, and must, protect our loved ones, families, campuses, and communities from the devastating and pervasive effects of sexual violence (You can do anything) Similarly, "Hot little girl in high school" works not by taking the President out of context, but by showing that some of what he says is revolting in any context, and assembles his quotes to make something that's actually faithful to his sentiments, even if he never said it all in one breath: Hot little girl in high school I'm a very compassionate person (with a very high IQ) Just think, in a couple of years I'll be dating you It must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees Come here, I'll show you how life works. Please. Similarly, if less incisively, a poem like "A dream" works as, as it were, a compendium of Trump's subconscious, that creates an entirely fictional scenario using his repeating imagery as a narrative through-line: A dream Trump Panama offers fine dining, five pools an luxury rooms In those room you have cameras in the strangest places I'm watching... we have televisions all over You see these incredible-looking women The top models in the world getting screwed on tables Then, all of a sudden, the cameras swerve And all of a sudden I see her Stephen Baldwin's mother She's totally changed her look She's now got the big phoney tits A black left hand and much different looking body That nose is a piece of rubber And she says: I love your potatoes. Weird On the other hand, "Get ready for some excitement" creates a story by finding a weird coincidence (in remarks three years apart) with no deeper significance (underpinned of course by Trump's constant mendacity): Get ready for some excitement! China is going to complete 59 new theme parks by 2020. We've just fired 59 missiles. Fireworks! And finally, a poem like "Does torture work?" works by finding a gem of absurdity to construct a theme around: Does torture work? Listen you motherfuckers Not everything is nice Waterboarding Sleep deprivation Me singing "Call me maybe" I'm not saying it's pleasant but believe me it works Unfortunately, poems like these, where the author has actually had a moment of inspiration, only highlight how little effort has been put into most of them - constructing "haikus" of his comments on individual rival politicians, for instance, tells us little when we've heard all those remarks before.

But obviously, a book about said president will always have some political message. This is not ment to be taken seriously, for Trump is not a poet. There were some very clever, funny and some creepy parts. Most of it I liked. It's a very easy book to read and it doesn't take long. After every poem it is explained where the lines were originally said. Even though it sometimes is hilarious, the reality that the man who actually said all those thing, is now a president is not hilarious and makes me very worried. It is very funny but very sad at the same time.

    If I'd read this when it was first published, I would have been amused. I would have admired Rob Sears's cleverness in constructing poems and haikus from Trump's tweets and transcripts. I would have laughed at lines such as 'I'm a very compassionate person (with a very high IQ)' (Tweet 21 April 2013) and 'Thank the real Lord that Donald Trump exists.' (Tweet criticising Lord Alan Sugar, 6 December 2012). I might have smiled, sadly, at 'He who has the gold makes the rules.'

But all of these lines predate the Trump presidency. Sigh. I've read the poems and haikus. Satire doesn't always work, especially when reality creeps in. I wonder if Trump has heard that wonderful song by Butterfingers: 'FIGJAM'?

    If you're burning with hatred for Trump 24/7, you will find this book satisfying. If you don't really care about the guy all that much, you will probably find this collection of Trump's most infamous utterances to be fairly pointless.
