Recommending Jim Acosta's book "The Enemy of the People"



I'm still in the middle of this book but I'm quite impressed with Jim Acosta, chief White House correspondent for CNN. Many background stories about Chump (and the other White House idiots), during the campaign and in the first 2 years as POTUS. Definitely a good read, but prepare yourself to stay angry about all the shenanigans he writes about. Acosta is a great reporter, tells riveting stories but never reveals his sources unless they agree to speak on the record.

Unlike Michael Wolff, Acosta repeats no gossip (in my opinion), just real news but stuff we might have missed. In the very first chapter Acosta reveals that his father emigrated from Cuba as an 11-year-old boy back in the 1960s. So naturally Jim feels empathy for immigrants, the separated families, and the DACA crisis that the Chump administration has created. However this book is about much more than immigration, it's really about Chump's war on truth and his conspiracy against the American media.
