Description

New York Times best-selling author and award-winning journalist, Nina Burleigh, explores Donald Trump’s attitudes toward women by providing in-depth analysis and background on the women who have had the most profound influence on his life - the mother and grandmother who raised him, the wives who lived with him, and the daughter who is poised to inherit it all.

Has any president in the history of the United States had a more fraught relationship with women than Donald Trump? He flagrantly cheated on all three of his wives, brushed off multiple accusations of sexual assault, publicly ogled his eldest daughter, bought the silence of a porn star and a Playmate, and proclaimed his now-infamous seduction technique: “grab ’em by the pussy.” 

Golden Handcuffs is a comprehensive and provocative account of the women who have been closest to Trump - his German-immigrant grandmother, Elizabeth, the uncredited founder of the Trump Organization; his Scottish-immigrant mother, Mary, who acquired a taste for wealth as a maid in the Andrew Carnegie mansion; his wives - Ivana, Marla, and Melania (the first and third of whom are immigrants); and his eldest daughter, Ivanka, groomed to take over the Trump brand from a young age. Also examined are Trump’s two older sisters, one of whom is a prominent federal judge; his often-overlooked younger daughter, Tiffany; his female employees; and those he calls “liars” - the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. 

Of these women, Burleigh writes, “where they come from and what they do now and in the future matters because they have or have had the ear of the most powerful man on earth.

Pretty interesting

Pretty interesting but I didn't always love the writing style, and the narration was just average.

Provocative, plausible, imperfect analysis

Narration: clear, engaging timbre, comfortably paced, with appropriately inflected speech.

Content and story: some of the content is doubtful (e.g., complimentary descriptions of Trump’s mother’s mannerisms and supposedly attentive behavior seriously at variance with other accounts written by journalists and historians more knowledgeable of Trump’s FOG).
Uncompromising analysis of trophy wives and uncompromising acquiescence of misogyny in exchange for extreme wealth is believable, pathetic, and allows why filthy rich men are so horribly chauvinistic.

Good read but....

You should read other books about his family and compare. It's an ok read just not sure about some facts. Keep an open mind and remember it is possible some things are not quite right.

Typical journalistic arrogance & condescension ...

Predictably, a radically liberal author attributing the Trump presidency to an “uneducated” and “irrational” citizenry as opposed to a conscientious repudiation of the political class by the electorate. What must it be like to feel so intellectually superior to so many?

Wrong reader!

This is not a novel written atmospherically!
You should re-record this with a man. Sorry to be sexist. But the book is information not pensive discovery. Nothing wrong with the reader. But annoying for this material
