Summary: Disloyal: A Memoir and A Promised Land by SCOTT CAMPBELL Summary
WARNING! The current administration prefers that you not read this summary because it reveals President Trump's darkest side as testified by his attack dog and consigliere for over a decade, Michael Cohen. This is a summary book, not intended to replace the original book by Michael Cohen. Michael Cohen admits he was mesmerized by Trump like a cult member, began to see himself breaking his moral code, but stuck with Trump for money, power, and fame. Cohen boasts that he knew Trump better than his own family, and it was not a pretty sight. He saw Trump as a sociopathic mobster boss who would do anything to win and destroy anybody who challenged him in his quest for success. Cohen dumps a truckload of Trump family skeletons at the reader’s feet and then picks them up one by one and executes a meticulous show-and-tell. Pornstar Stormy Daniels and Playboy centerfold favorite Karen McDougall are unforgettable pains in the ass for Trump, and he enlists Cohen, the “fixer,” to “take care of it.” Trump thinks nothing of stiffing contractors, exploiting widows in bankruptcy, cheating in public opinion polls, inflating or deflating his property values, or paying off the mob. Cohen bears witness to Trump’s failing business and real estate empire, his successful and miraculous political campaign, and the start of his Presidency before he gets whisked away to jail by the Mueller Special Counsel investigation. Cohen cites examples to show that Trump was a bully, a likely adulterer, a pathological liar, an amoral cheat, a bigot regarding homosexuals and religion, and an occasional racist. He also shows Trump’s uncanny strengths, skills, and abilities and why he initially thought that Trump would be a good President. Cohen spent years encouraging him to run. This story is a must-read because it has new, insider information about how the most powerful person in the world is the ugliest personality and how he nevertheless ascended to his position of authority--and what might happen in the future.

A PROMISED LAND “A riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making—from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy” Barack Obama spills the story of his unlikely journey starting as a young boy in Indonesia and Hawaii, and his time in prep school where he showed more passion for his jump-shot, drugs, and partying than studying. Then we experience his college years under the admitted influence of Marxism, and into Harvard Law and as the President of the Law Review-- which would launch his political career with a write-up in The New York Times. Then we sample his rapid rise to the Senate and then the Presidency under the tutelage of professionals like David Axelrod and and Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, but also armed with unique skills of global inspiration to represent a grassroots effort. Obama gets some help. Favored candidates step aside or hand him their campaign, and dirt leaked from sealed court documents, at just the right time, buries his opponents. His path to the Presidency miraculously cleared, he was handed the keynote by John Kerry at the DNC to make him famous. John Kerry’s staff infuses his campaign. John McCain offers no plan to solve the financial crisis, and ignores states he must have to win, ensuring Obama’s success and the immediate launch of an aggressive leftist agenda to “change” the world. A Promised Land serves up plate after plate of thoughtful insights into the shocking mechanics of U.S. partisan politics, elections, war, and international diplomacy--and the killing of a person in Pakistan believed to be Osama bin Laden.
