PAPA CAN YOU READ ME? And Other Appropriately Sh*tty Titles For Don Jr.’s Sh*tty Book

Because we live in the stupidest possible timeline, and the universe loves its irony, Donald Trump Jr., son of the first possibly illiterate President of the United States, is seeking a book deal.

PAPA CAN YOU READ ME? Titles for the Planned Donald Trump Jr. BookAccording to the New York Post, Don Jr., who we’re assuming at least knows what a book is, “is shopping a tome, and is being repped by top agent David Vigliano’s literary firm, AGI Vigliano.”

What will the book be about? Will it be a tell-all of his time on the campaign trail? Will it be a thirsty tome of pickup lines that he plans to unleash now that he’s newly single? Or will it be a wistful tale of how he wishes he and Baron could switch places?

There is one thing that we know for certain, it’s going to be awful. And if Junior’s writing talents are the same as his father, it’s almost certain that he won’t be writing it at all.

So, for the beleaguered ghost writer who has to come up with a title for this obsequious dreck, the Book Riot staff have come up with a few options. Feel free to use any of them (just give us a nod in the Acknowledgements, OK?).
