Next Week’s Trivia

Question:  Name a book that Trulbert may have outsold?

Answer:  Chelsea Clinton’s debut tome.

Almost no one is buying the Clinton title, co-authored by Devi Sridhar, a Global Public Health Professor at the University of Edinburgh.  It currently stands at No. 74,374 on the Amazon Bestsellers Chart.

The book profiles global health organizations and the work they do. Chelsea is Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation which prioritizes improving global health.

Published by Oxford University Press, the book is well-intentioned but bland in the extreme. And there is no answer given to the question “Who Runs the World and Why?”

In related news, “the Peter Principle” may soon be re-named “The Chelsea Principle”.

  1. How about a Trulbert sequel that has an opening scene in the upper eastside luxury apartment of a wealthy hedgefund manager and his pug-ugly wife that looks amazingly like Webster Hubble. The storyline could be something like the matrix fails catastrophically and for reasons surpassing comprehension Trulbert has to extract the couple to the safety of Newark NJ. Hilarity and tragedy ensue.
    You could call it “Trulbert: Escape from New York”

  2. I am still waiting for the Trulbert female supermodel assassins who kill with poison-dipped fingernails, each deadly fingernail delivering a unique poison to cause a specific, agonizing death.
    Oh, and the supermodel assassins are all named after expensive brands of perfume, and these names give you clues to their personas.

  3. I would love to rise to the level of my incompetence for the same money that has been lavished upon Chelsea.

    As to the supermodel assassins with poison fingernails, they’ve been a bit busy, what with taking out Kim Jong Un’s half-brother in Malaysia last week.

  4. Sauk, LOVED IT!

    “How about a Trulbert sequel that has an opening scene in the upper eastside luxury apartment of a wealthy hedgefund manager and his pug-ugly wife that looks amazingly like Webster Hubble.”

  5. I can understand how Chelsea’s book lost out. I mean, who can resist fiction about garlicky Romanians schtupping hot news reporters?

    Seriously, I’m guessing the collapse of the Clinton Foundation shut down demand for the book, and with DMA, I rejoice that Ms. Rodham will not be running the world.

  6. Seems that baby Clinton’s book will fare far less well than her mother’s book “Hard Choices”. It’s been said that Simon & Schuster recovered less than 50% of their out of pocket costs for publishing the door stop that the book turned out to be. Rumor has it most of those books that were paid for are still sitting in a temporary storage locker. Hard to find payers when it’s known you’re no longer a player.

  7. Within a few weeks of Hillary’s loss, Chelsea’s hedge fund manager husband, Marc Mezvinsky, closed down the fund he managed, Eaglevale Partners. Eaglevale partners has lost 90% of its value since its founding. Wikileaks documents suggest that investing in Eaglevale partners was a way to get invited to Clinton Global Initiative events, so perhaps the investors who lost money on Eaglevale were able to recover their money in other corrupt transactions involving CGI.
    That door now seems closed.

  8. MP, if that’s true, we need a special prosecutor. Long past time for all the Clintons to be behind bars, I think.
