I came up with an idea I’m calling the Cottage Industry Award. It should not need explanation. But the foremost awardee of all time would have to be Donald J. Trump.
We know all his branding work. That’s one thing. However, since he ran for and got elected president, he has amassed the largest cottage industry in the country. That’s no joke.
Think of all the books written about him, positive and negative. Think of all the commentary. Think of all the people who have made millions on the subject of Donald Trump. I’m sure this in not lost on the Donald. It seems a lot of people have been benefiting and feathering their nests off him. Eat your hearts out.
It really is a phenomena worthy of an award. Yes, the cottage industry award. I challenge anyone to outdo the size of the Donald Trump cottage industry. Whether you like him or not, you have to hand it to him. A lot of politicians only wish they had that capacity to inspire and fuel an entire industry — which will probably go on long into the future.
I mean it is way past Hillary or other notable people. Everyone within 100 feet of Trump now thinks he or she has a memoir or book. The impeachers will probably be next to cash in. And the word is that Bolton’s book deal was over 7 figures.
Can you deny the cottage industry? Now motive and objective is another matter.
