Trump’s Ghostwriter Sets the Record Straight

In an intriguing piece in The New Yorker on Trump, Jane Mayer talks to Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter of The Art of the Deal, about Trump’s attention span. Mayer writes:

“I put lipstick on a pig,” [Schwartz] said. “I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.” He went on, “I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.”
