Hillary Clinton recently co-wrote and released a political thriller novel entitled “State of Terror”. Though the book is fictional, it has many references to real-life scenarios, and more importantly, people. One such character is President Eric Dunn, a villain of the story who is described as idiotic with breath that smells like hamburgers.
Clinton has implied several times that the evil politician in her novel may in fact be based on Donald Trump, and she recently replied to a review of her book with the same suggestion. This is hardly a surprise given that along with the other qualities attributed to the fictional president, Donald Trump shares with him the love of meat, especially hamburgers and fast food.
Excerpts of the novel published by NPR include the details about the meaty breath of the character inspired by Trump. They also include the phrase that if Dunn’s actions as president cause a disaster, “it will be dumped at your big gold door.” Anyone who follows former president Trump knows that if there’s anything he loves more than a good hamburger, it’s gold.
Could have been based on anyone…. https://t.co/bxYrbg1m26

Clinton’s tweets, as well as her entire novel, are not entirely subtle in their insinuations. However, they are definitely both clever and accurate. While many politicians write memoirs about the biggest moments of their political career (as did Hillary after the 2016 election), her choice to also write a fictional version of today’s unprecedented topics is a great way to help us laugh a little, even about the more serious things.
Twitter had some thoughts:

Interesting – fast food counts as meat?
Love how everybody seems to think @HillaryClinton  is just recently developing a sense of humor!

One of my favorite lines was the SOS Chief of Staff telling the Director of National Intelligence that he "is just so unlikeable." Revenge is sweet. 😂
