About the Book

Unexpectedly, the ancient Greek God, Apollo, receives an inadvertent tweet from Donald Trump asking him to attend a White House rally. While there, Apollo encounters a personification of Dearth who received a similar tweet. The two overhear an argument between Donald Trump and Uncle Sam regarding the eight Pillars of Truth (Ethics, Integrity, Honesty, Loyalty, Courtesy, Reverence, Honor, and Justice) who President Trump has sent to hell.

When Apollo, Dearth, and Uncle Sam decide to travel to hell to retrieve the Pillars of Truth, they meet Hades who is unable to find a place for the radiant Pillars. After listening to a discussion between Hades and each of the Pillars, Apollo devises a plan to bring the Pillars back to the United States. When Apollo, Uncle Sam, Dearth, and the Pillars of Truth return to the White House, the Greek God’s plan unfurls as he involves twelve of Trump’s followers, as a jury, and eventually has Dearth escort Trump, Fruity Rudy, Moscow Mitch, Bad Bar, and the Fox to see Hades. But what will happen when the audience becomes part of the plan?

The Trumpestiad is a timely political satire that humorously brings into focus many of the bizarre events that have taken place in the United States for the past three years.
