Arch-conservative San Diegan Dinesh D’Souza is riding high these days: his new book, Death of a Nation, this week is number 5 on the New York Times hardcover best-seller list.
The book posits that Republican President Donald Trump will save the nation from the Democrats just as Repulican Abraham Lincoln did in 1860.
A companion documentary with the same name and message came out August 3. The New York Times earlier covered the release. Previous documentaries have done well. His 2016: Obama’s America, and America: Imagine a World Without Her were #2 and #6, respectively, among all-time political documentaries, according to the website.
D’Souza pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance laws in 2014. President Trump pardoned him in May of this year.
