Whether or not you’re a Trump fan, the possibility that you have been following developments in the many indictments that Trump is facing is pretty high. Perhaps you, like me, have wondered whether the man will end up in prison. While we all speculate on the trial outcomes, Barry Robbins, author of The Imprisonment of Donald T, has put into words what many of us are pondering i.e. what would an incarcerated Trump be like? What would he be doing and saying? How would he be feeling? Would he show any remorse toward those his unbridled tongue has bashed or his dealings have crippled? Would he continue whining about rigged elections, witch hunts, fake news, and corruption in the highest levels of government? Would he expect special treatment in prison and how would he react when and if he didn’t get it?
Through this fascinating collection of vignettes, Robbins explores all these questions and many more. He paints vivid scenarios around Inmate #45892 who shares Cell #107 with Hector, one of the little business owners whose family lost everything as rents soared in the shadow of Trump’s empire. Robbins follows Trump as he performs kitchen and laundry duties, tries to exercise in the prison yard, denies he has hemorrhoids because he’s the “healthiest person” around, and pens an essay about how he is the greatest inmate because, after all, he has “always been the best at everything.” Trump cringes as he recognizes himself in hilarious poems written by other inmates, cherishes letters he receives from Putin and Ye, and cuts a lonely figure when no family members come to see him on visitation day. When a letter comes from Melania requesting a divorce and giving him some excellent reasons why she would want that, even he sees her point: imprisonment has taught him lessons he desperately needed to learn. And those of us who are non-Trump fans applaud the retributive justice that Barry Robbins has dealt Trump through a clever combination of satire, humor, realism, and pathos in this eloquently written book. I loved The Imprisonment of Donald T!
