Donald Trump, our favorite politician always stepping in it, has been known to say some spectacularly weird and offensive things. After the 3rd debate, Antonio French on sparked a Twitter hashtag called #trumpbookreivew. Imagine if the eloquent Trump, who knows words and has all the best words, tried to sum up classic works of fiction.
Trump's foreign policy answers sound like a book report from a teenager who hasn't read the book. "Oh, the grapes! They had so much wrath!"

Ever since, people have been tweeting in their ideas for book reviews through the eyes of Donald Trump. Classic Literature is sure to be misunderstood, misread, and somehow offended. Get your daily dose of satire and take a look at some of our #trumpbookreviews based off real quotes that you may find horrifying and familiar.
1. 1984 by George Orwell
Tremendous, tremendous read. Orwell was a very smart man. Had some good ideas. Politics today is such a disgrace. Good people don’t go into government. Bigly book with bigly ideas for the future!
2. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I’ve said if Daisy weren’t married to Tom, perhaps I’d be dating her. That would make Gatsby extremely upset, very angry. Part of the beauty of her is that she is very rich. You know, wealthy people don’t like me.
3. Native Son by Richard Wright
Our African American communities are absolutely in the worse shape they’ve ever been in before. Ever, ever, ever. We have a situation where we have our inner cities, African Americans, Hispanics; they’re all living in hell, because it’s so dangerous.
4. The Bridge Over the River Kwai by Pierre Boulle
Not a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.
5. Animal Farm by George Orwell
I dealt with an animal farm. I rented them a piece of land. They paid me more for one night than the land was worth for two years, and then I didn’t let them use the land. That’s what we should be doing. I don’t want to use the word “screwed,” but I screwed them. That’s what we should be doing.
6. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
Holden Caulfield is crude, rude, obnoxious, and dumb – other than that I like him very much!
7. The Art of War by Sun Tzu
Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don’t have them. When was the last time anybody saw us beating, let’s say China in a trade deal? I beat China all the time. All the time. This is a good read. If we have nukes why don’t we use them? That’s the art of war.
