Author Biography

Three-time award-winning humor author Barry Robbins is a former accountant, but he hopes you'd never guess.
He combined his interest in politics with his disdain for a certain current politician whose name rhymes with Dump, and an unfettered imagination, to produce a unique world of political satire, now consisting of four books.

He spent his time in exile in the accounting world at a large, international accounting firm. It lasted 26 years. Then he quit. He moved to balmy Finland with his two beautiful daughters and Finnish wife. Not knowing the language, he followed in the footsteps of most ex-pats and became adept at taking out the trash. But he also developed another pair of eyes – seeing the world and the U.S. differently. He now resides principally in Florida.

With two first-place and one third-place awards for Humor under his belt, Robbins wonders if he has put a dent in the accountant stereotype.

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

The Trump Diaries 2024 is a work of fiction in the comedy subgenre. It is suitable for the general adult audience and was penned by author Barry Robbins. Set in a humorous vision of the future the book is a translation into actual English of Donald J. Trump’s diary of the year 2024. Discovered in the burned-down ruins of Mar-a-Lago, the diary contains the various nuggets of wisdom that Trump has been able to muster over the course of the year as he navigates political and personal challenges that he is only just able to understand, let alone overcome.

I adore the brand of comedy that absolutely refuses to leave a joke behind, filling every sentence with as many belly laughs as physically possible to ensure that the entire experience is riotous from beginning to end. Author Barry Robbins beautifully lampoons the iconic characterization of Donald Trump as he struggles to navigate a turbulent year in American politics whilst also figuring out this whole ‘Wordle’ thing. This version of Donald Trump is taken to some hilarious absurd extremes that somehow manage to feel entirely in character for the man himself when read in the context of this book, a testament to the author’s study of their subject as the lines between what could be real and what is preposterous start to blur. Overall, The Trump Diaries 2024 shines a light on just how ridiculous the real Donald Trump is by presenting a wacky and irrational version of the man who feels just as believable as the real person.

In the year 2024, some investigators have the unfortunate fate of discovering a personal diary amidst the rubble of Mar-a-Lago -- now destroyed by the Great Fire -- written by none other than the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. In The Trump Diaries 2024, a hilarious satire based upon the infamous Donald Trump, author Barry Robbins once again takes unrestrained pot shots at the former US president through a series of personal day-to-day relating of events that can only have been written by a "very stable genius," who apparently needs a woke liberal chronicler to interpret his unique and diverse vocabulary. While Ivanka and Melania are happily married, Trump tries to console his very special friend, Vladimir Putin, that he should probably get over his loss in Ukraine and move on, just like Trump.

Barry Robbins has an innate ability to spoof current world events, and he does this to Donald Trump with ease that verges on the height of mimicry. The Trump Diaries 2024 is a hilarious rendition of a diary written in a fictional future where Donald Trump expresses his innermost feelings and desires through a series of short everyday snippets that feel so very Trump, except for the coherent sentence structures, correct grammar, and lack of misspellings. If you're not familiar with Barry Robbins' work, I highly recommend it, especially the Oh Daddy Chronicles -- a parody series that makes fun of the outrageous and unbelievable stuff that the Trump administration got away with. Highly recommended.

Barry Robbins has authored a parody of Donald Trump’s character in The Trump Diaries 2024. This is humor that supersedes political lines. Republicans, as well as Democrats, can find humor and fun in this book. Conservatives—like me—and liberals can laugh together at the foibles mentioned by Barry. The Donald Trump presented in this book is a caricature of the real Donald. I did not know it was possible to develop so much silliness from someone’s IQ. This book pokes fun at everything connected with Donald. Even though this is a parody, one can sense that Barry really disagrees with what Donald stands for. This book is excellent for a relaxing read when you are in the mood for comedy.

Unfortunately, Donald Trump sets himself up to be the butt of jokes. Nevertheless, his statements will provide fodder for good humor for years to come. In The Trump Diaries 2024, Barry Robbins cashes in on Donald’s statements and actions that easily lend themselves to comedy. Barry includes all those who have supported Donald and even makes room to poke fun at those who have opposed him. The Democrat that runs against Trump in 2024 is someone I would never have guessed. Makes for interesting speculation. Some of the language used is suggestive, but what can one expect when dealing with 'the Donald'? Very conservative people may be offended at some of the mild vulgarity. Overall, this book will tickle everyone’s funny bone. Barry is a master at inventive humor and political satire.

The Trump Diaries 2024 is a satirical book that lampoons the former president of the United States. The diaries were “found” after the “Great Fire of Election Night 2024” destroyed Mar-a-Lago. There are 80 entries, all of which were “translated from Trump-speak into real English by a woke translator.” Some of the entries are “Postcard from Vladimir,” (United States Senator from Iowa) “Chuck Grassley,” and “The Grocery Store,” which has Trump attempting to use a self-checkout lane for the first time. By all appearances, author Barry Robbins is not a fan of the former president. For example, the first entry, dated Jan. 1, 2024, has Trump looking forward to a new year of “fleecing tenants, cheating at golf,” etc. The “translator” adds to the derision, noting that the reason the book contains words longer than four letters and complete sentences is only because of the work that he, the translator, did.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Trump Diaries 2024. It’s both creative and humorous. Author Barry Robbins uses absurdity and drollness to remind his readers of many of Trump’s foibles and mistakes, along with his intelligence level. Some examples are noting that Putin is “my (Trump’s) friend” and “who says I (Trump) ever grew up?” There’s also the mythical “Trumple” game, where players get six tries to figure out a two-letter word, with one of the letters already filled in. Robbins also tells of Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz telling Trump, “they took an MRI of your brain and found nothing there.” But poking fun at the former president is always in good fun. Even supporters of Trump will laugh if they read it with an open mind. Whatever your political persuasion, this book is well worth reading. You’ll smile, laugh, and enjoy the author’s imagination. I recommend it to everyone.

The Trump Diaries 2024 by Barry Robbins is just as the name suggests, a collection of diary entries by none other than Donald Trump written in the year 2024. Who knew Trump was diligent enough to keep a diary? Follow along for the innermost thoughts of one Donald Trump and see the world through the eyes of this unique man. Please note all entries have been translated into English for your convenience.

The Trump Diaries 2024 by Barry Robbins is a hilarious compilation of diary entries written by none other than The Donald and translated into layman’s terms by a liberal Donald, happened upon by chance. The entries are short and funny and, in true Trump, fashion, make almost no sense. This comedic collection is a fun read which offers the reader a break from the seriousness of life and allows you to laugh at the expense of the ex-president of the United States. Although the political aspect of the entries was a little lost on me, nonetheless, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I think that with the right amount of political knowledge the context of this book would be even more enjoyable but in saying that, this book was very well written. The little jokes thrown into the entries had me in stitches and there wasn’t a moment when I didn’t have a smile on my face while reading. I think The Trump Diaries is definitely worth reading especially for those interested in the political climate of the United States.
