You’re Fired: The Perfect Guide To Beating Donald Trump.
“You’re Fired!” Donald Trump became famous bellowing those words in a make-believe boardroom. In November, tens of millions of Americans want to yell it back at him. Yet Trump has seemed to almost defy the laws of political physics. Paul Begala, one of America’s greatest political talents, keys out the strategy that will defeat him and send him and his industrial-strength spray-on tan machine back to Mar-a-Lago.
About The Book
In You’re Fired, Paul Begala tells us how Trump uses division to distract from the actual reality of his record. Distraction, he argues, is Trump’s superpower. And this book is Kryptonite. In it, the man who helped elect Bill Clinton and reelect Barack Obama, details:
-The special weapons and tactics needed in the unconventional war against this most unconventional politician.
-How to drive a wedge-or, rather, a pickup truck-between Trump and many of his supporters, especially blue-collar workers and farmers.
-Where the votes to defeat Trump will come from, and how the Rising American Electorate can catch Trump flat-footed.
-How Democrats can run on issues ranging from Coronavirus and healthcare to the economy, as well as climate change and Trump’s long-term plan to dominate the federal judiciary.
-There is one chapter called simply, “This Chapter Will Beat Trump.” Find out why Begala is so confident and what issues he says will sink the Trumptanic.
How To Avoid Repeating The Same Mistakes In 2020
Begala writes: “I forgot Bill Clinton’s First Law of Politics, taught to me a quarter-century ago by the smartest political mind Iv’e ever known: elections are about the lives of the voters, not the candidates’ lives. When we were mired in scandal-either real or manufactured-Clinton would inevitably look at me and say, “If we make this about the voters’ lives instead of mine, we will both be better off!”
He goes on to say: “I knew this in 2012. I was an adviser to the pro-Obama superPAC Priorities USA. We had voluminous research on Romney, and one thing was clear from the jump: he is a man of good character. Fine (Also, great hair, which sent Carville and me into a jealous fits.) We weren’t interested in attacking his character. My experience in campaigns against people like George H.W. Bush (another man of upstanding character with whom I had important political and policy disagreements) had taught me that attacks on issues are far more effective than personal attacks.”
Begala stakes what he got wrong, and here is an insert of that and how it needs to be about the people and not the candidate.
“Here’s what I got wrong: I made it about Trump’s life instead of about your life. We should have made ads like the ones we made against Romney. Mitt is a fundamentally good person who had some business deals that hurt him politically; Trump is an awful person of the lowest character. And he had a lot more business deals that screwed working people.”
“We should have filmed the plumbing contractors he drove out of business when he wouldn’t pay his bills. The housekeepers and cooks and blackjack dealers who lost their jobs when his casinos went bankrupt. The undocumented workers he used and abused at his golf courses. The veterans’ who lost tens of thousands of dollars on a worthless “degree” from Trump University. We should have shown how Trump has hurt people like you.”

“Paul Begala’s new work is a masterful meticulously-researched roadmap not only for winning the 2020 elections but for defending our very democracy. With characteristic wit, wisdom and strategic brilliance, Paul provides a panoramic view of the electoral map and a compelling look at challenges ahead, giving us the tools to fight For The People-and win.”—Speaker Pelosi
“Begala’s book is heartbreaking and hilarious, hopeful and helpful. It’s full of good information, clear analysis and sound advice on how we can build better lives and brighter future together. It’s wise, profoundly patriotic and deeply moral. Read it.”—President Bill Clinton
“DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK, if you want trump to be president for 4 more years. Otherwise, buy two and give one to a friend.”—James Carville
“If you want to know what’s going on…read this book.”—Willie Nelson
“Paul Begala, the dopey@CNN flunky and head of the Pro-Hillary Clinton SuperPAC, has knowingly committed fraud in his first ad against me.”—President Donald Trump
“Solid advice for anyone run for office, whether against the current occupant of the White House or not.”—Kirkus Review
This book is full of memorable advice and Begala’s trademark wit. It focuses on the lessons we can learn from the party’s successes and failures-and the crucial tools Democrats need to beat Trump. It will show anyone run for office, the best ways to run, and what politics should be about. Policies are first, as well as social and equality issues with anyone or group of individuals in the United States. However, against Trump, you do have to go after some of his family, because they are in the White House, such as Jared Kushner, as well as Don Jr. and Ivanka. They have put themselves front and center, so they are fair game.
