Hi, Jacob Weisberg here, CEO of Pushkin Industries, we're living through extraordinary times and the tsunami of news that hits us every day can be a little overwhelming.
So maybe some laughter is the best medicine. In that spirit, I'm excited to be sharing this short excerpt from Pushkin's new audio book, Hasta La Vista, America Trump's Farewell Address.
It's written by the genius satirist Kurt Andersen and performed by the great Alec Baldwin. This is the perfect arranged finale to a deranged era, and it's available exclusively at a Trump farewell dotcom for just 99 cents. My fellow Americans, this is the most important speech I've ever given, the most important in history. Speaking of history, George Washington, I cannot tell a lie just like me. Although I actually could tell lies if I wanted, but I don't, and that's actually why they hate me, the phonies, the radicals, the liberals, the elitists, the fake media, the Antipas, because I tell too much truth.
But our first president, first of 45, Washington invented what I'm doing now, what many historians call his farewell address, it could have run again one very easily, another term, then again and again and again forever. No rule against it. And back then, also, elections weren't rigged. In his farewell address, George Washington told America, like I'm doing now, why he decided against staying in Washington, D.C. for another four years. No, thanks.
By going home after fighting so hard for freedom, heading south with the first lady play golf sport of kings back to the big, beautiful plantation with his own 200 lifetime personal employees, almost like family, very diverse, like Mar a Lago. As they say, history repeats. So this is my totally voluntary farewell address to you, the people. Farewell. Hope, like we talked about pretty much, that it's so easy to be presidential, but nobody else can be Trump.
You just listen to a clip from Hasta La Vista, America. This is possibly the last time we'll hear Baldwin is Trump, we think you'll find it just as funny as we do by Hasta la Vista America Now at a Trump farewell, dotcom. It's only 99 cents.
Shouldn't we be charging more?
