Democrats, liberals, progressives, independents, even many Republicans – combine your feelings about Trump with the “Oh Daddy Chronicles” unique brand of humor for a side-splitting ride through the Trump White House. If you’re a fan of satire, especially when it’s aimed directly at “The Donald”, then you’re in luck.
“Oh Daddy Chronicles” is a hilarious political humor book, made up of 46 skit-like episodes that follow the craziness of Trump’s presidency.
Often described as “Saturday Night Live, in written form, on steroids”, these humorous skits are largely based on real events and feature fictional dialogue and conversations between Trump, his family, and government officials.
Between peals of laughter, you will likely agree that the dialogue and conversations are probably pretty close to the truth of what the orange man would actually say/do.
You’ll laugh out loud at the far-fetched but plausible stories contained in this quick but hysterical read. You just might never look at politics the same way again.
If you are looking for a political satire that comes across as Dave Barry meets Douglas Adams, have I got a book for you! Oh Daddy Chronicles by Barry Robbins is a tongue-in-cheek, fictional look at life behind the scenes in the Trump White House since the beginning of the pandemic. It’s a highly entertaining record of what’s been happening in the government, society and the world-at-large since COVID-19 began.
Nothing is off limits in this creative book and readers are privy to fabricated conversations between President Trump and his family members, cabinet members, office staff, and international leaders. You also get a creative take on political rallies and press briefings, with notations about the actual questions asked by the reporters in attendance. Mr. Robbins has taken some of the more unusual situations, such as President Trump’s walk across the street from the White House to pose in front of St. John’s church, and given them hilarious new explanations. Throw in zany descriptions about things such as “The Greenland Affair”, an inside look at birthday celebrations and a diabolical plot involving black beans, and you’ve got some side-splitting reading.
One of the things that make this book so enjoyable is the underlying commentary of the current political climate and the snippets of factual information that have been included for context. It’s very smart humor, leavened with the ridiculous. For example, fans of classic comedy will especially enjoy the chapter entitled “The Perfect Call”, which pays homage to the famous Abbott and Costello skit, “Who’s on First?” The author has cleverly appropriated as many people and circumstances as possible, given them a good shake and laid them out for us to laugh out loud about. Given the current challenges, being able to laugh is no bad thing and much needed.
Author Barry Robbins allows you to take a welcome step back from your day-to-day troubles and gives you an opportunity to put it all in perspective. A sharp, insightful, well-written and funny read, Oh Daddy Chronicles by Barry Robbins comes highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews for those who prefer a less serious take on politics!
Oh Daddy Chronicles was named the Gold Medal award winner for the category of Fiction - Humor in the Readers' Favorite 2021 International Book Awards.
