yikes, talk about divisiveness! not only does he slam various segments of America, in particular within the Republican Party, but he sometimes does so truthfully while at other times slams individuals and groups based on a caricature or outright misrepresentation based on stated errors of fact not mere opinion, so that for me the book that started out sounding so reasonable, progressed to sloppy, unsourced accounts of events, unsupported assertions revealing both lack of knowledge and understanding, and all that told harshly. What a mess, what a disappointment. For example, the author falls for the red herring "birther" narrative rather than the separate natural-born citizen controversy -- which actually is non-partisan as it is an Article 2 Constitutional requirement, and a huge issue for Republican Party given DeSantis, Ramaswamy, Hayley, Rubio, Cruz, Sununu, etc) -- of course this was not a 20th century problem given McKinley, TR, Taft, Wilson, Coolidge, Hoover, FDR, Truman, Ike, JFK, LBJ all had non-immigrant parents as the immigrant explosion of that century hadn't yet produced people of age running for President. Now we have a whole segment of the population not voting, sitting out elections, in disgust of this matter, with Republican Party oaths of loyalty (thus contestants having no standing to contest), and instead of treating this with history and law (i.e., the Constitution, Madison, etc), the author just restates oft-repeated (but false) assumptions and made up assertions with no citations. This is a lazy, poorly researched book, a mean book (ex: slamming Gateway Pundit as "fringe," ridiculous, do some research), a deceptive book, and to me it seemed a self-serving book.½
