A cartoonist, who has done this sort of satire before, posted the following on Twitter:

He made this fake excerpt as a parody of Trump, the book, and the media and you won’t believe what happened next! Hah hah.
About twenty gazillion people shared this on social media, thinking it was genuine. This illustrates both the craziness of the political elite (Trump is odd) and the confirmation bias that people bring to social media, and who share nonsense without questioning anything.
Worse, of course, is when the professional media sources from social media because – reliability or something!
I expect a lot of fake memes like this to now flood social media. Why not?
