Now, Trump may not be a character in Peter Simple, but Timothy Snyder assuredly is, and potentially one of the most hilarious, warning crazedly of Trump’s military conspiracies as the president plays another golf game, suggesting that Trump is organizing the Boy Scouts to march on Washington as the . State Department and Pentagon deny ever having received presidential directives on any topic, and revealing that all members of Congress had been secretly arrested and transported to Guantanamo in the dead of night as Trump is impeached, convicted, and led away in chains. All the time, of course, Snyder would be wearily accepting massive advances for a new book-linked “unreality television” series, Profiles of Resistance , that I believe has already won several Pulitzer prizes.
