KIM KARDASHIAN SAVES THE WORLD (AFTER PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP NEARLY ENDS IT) is a parody depicting events many claim are too preposterous to ever happen, starting with Donald J. Trump being elected President of the United States of America.
This short ebook is both a fast-paced read and an urgent warning: “For people not paying close attention, the idea of voting for Donald Trump may have great appeal, if only for the fun of watching him play at being President,” says author Richard Hine. “I wanted to write a story that reminds people to take this year’s election very seriously, because the next President is sure to face challenges that are sudden, unexpected, and terrifying.”
Things aren't going well in the first days of the Trump Administration. Trump’s border wall has been hit with construction delays. The rise of the "Muslim Militias" and the "Black Lives Open Carry" movement is causing many conservatives to speak out in favor of gun control. And to make matters worse, President Trump is fighting with First Lady Melania over her plans to redecorate the White House. Trump is ill prepared for the 3 a.m. phone call from his National Security Adviser Sean Hannity alerting him to a nuclear accident caused by a Russian submarine in Canada's Northwest Territories. Taking advice from Secretary of State Sarah Palin, the sleep-deprived Trump makes an impetuous decision that could set the world on course for nuclear annihilation. Fortunately, the Celebrity Intelligence Agency (CELIA) has a plan—sending globetrotting agent Kim Kardashian to London, then Russia, and finally the Arctic Circle as she races against time to resolve the crisis.
