Analysis: So, Donald Trump read 'Rage' in 1 night? Um...

September 15, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

President Donald Trump appeared on home turf Tuesday morning, phoning in to "Fox & Friends" to, you know, just chat.

OK, so Trump read the entire book on his flight from Arizona to DC?

A bit of back-of-the-envelope math produces this: Trump would have had to read, roughly, 2. 2 pages a minute in order to finish the whole book on the flight.

In order then for Trump to have actually read the whole book, he would need to have read more than twice as fast as a fast reader, consuming 900 words or more every minute.

(According to his timeline, Trump or his staff sent 12 tweets or retweets while on the flight back to DC. ) No nothing -- except reading 900 words a minute.

Now, it's possible that Trump stayed up late after the flight, reading the book "very quickly. " But that is, well, how to put this, not at all likely.

So, did Trump actually read the entirety of Woodward's book on the plane Monday night and find it "very boring?"
