Why the Media Chose Not To Hear When Trump Called Obama a Literary Fraud

Summary:
Barack Obama, the writer, is stumbling again.  Even the New York Times acknowledges that the former president is “anguishing over the publication date of his long-awaited memoir.” Others are anguishing even more than he. “The delay is wreaking havoc with print scheduling and of course budget planning,” an insider told me.  “The enormous advance is starting to raise concerns within the publisher.  While Michelle’s book performed well, Obama needs to deliver the book and sales to make the overall deal worthwhile.” This is not the first time Obama failed to deliver on a book deadline.  In the summer of 1993, Simon & Schuster lost patience with Obama, canceled the contract it had awarded him two years earlier, and demanded the

Barack Obama, the writer, is stumbling again.  Even the New York Times acknowledges that the former president is “anguishing over the publication date of his long-awaited memoir.” Others are anguishing even more than he.

“The delay is wreaking havoc with print scheduling and of course budget planning,” an insider told me.  “The enormous advance is starting to raise concerns within the publisher.  While Michelle’s book performed well, Obama needs to deliver the book and sales to make the overall deal worthwhile.”

This is not the first time Obama failed to deliver on a book deadline.  In the summer of 1993, Simon & Schuster lost patience with Obama, canceled the contract it had awarded him two years earlier, and demanded the advance back.  To get out of debt and save his future, Obama had to do something.

Donald Trump knows just what that something was, and he has said so in public.  At the time, I was paying close attention.  In the spring of 2011, I received a call from a fellow named Michael Cohen.  I did not recognize the name, nor did I know how Cohen got my cell number.  He explained that he was Trump’s attorney, and I had heard of Trump.  Cohen wanted to know what I knew about Barack Obama’s origins.

I told Cohen I had followed the birth certificate issue only from a distance and knew no more than anyone else.  I recommended instead that Trump focus on the authorship issue.  Obama claimed to have written his acclaimed memoir, Dreams from My Father, by himself.  He was lying.  He definitely had help, much of it from Bill Ayers.  This I deduced from my literary forensic work in the summer and fall of 2008.  In fact, my first serious article on the same was published in the American Thinker.

Mainstream biographer Christopher Andersen confirmed Ayers’s involvement in his Obama-friendly 2009 book, Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage.  Andersen’s sources in Obama’s Hyde Park neighborhood told him that Obama found himself deeply in debt and “hopelessly blocked.”  At “Michelle’s urging,” Obama “sought advice from his friend and Hyde Park neighbor Bill Ayers.”

What attracted the Obamas, according to Andersen’s sources, were “Ayers’s proven abilities as a writer” as evident in his 1993 book To Teach.  Ayers himself took credit for Dreams on multiple occasions, usually, but not always, with a wink and a nod.

My conversation with Cohen reaffirmed that Trump was the un-Obama, a creature of his own creation: bold, bombastic, and as subtle as a truck bomb.  Unlike most on the right, Trump refused to be intimidated.  He was eager and ready to vet the nation’s first unvetted president.  On April 15, 2011, Sean Hannity of Fox News gave him the opportunity.
