Media hesitate on Trump’s authorship charge

On “The Sean Hannity Show” Friday night and at a Florida tea-party rally Saturday, Donald Trump elaborated on the charge that he has been making the past two weeks, namely that Bill Ayers helped write Barack Obama’s acclaimed 1995 memoir, “Dreams From My Father.”

Yet despite what Obama-friendly biographer David Remnick had previously called the “diabolical potency” of the charge, the mainstream media have resolutely failed to investigate its accuracy.

Trump all but dares them. At both stops, he emphasized the point that I make in “Deconstructing Obama”: As Trump put it to Hannity, “Without that book, [Obama] is not president.”

“Dreams” was essential to Obama’s ascendancy as “Profiles in Courage” was to John F. Kennedy’s. It served as the foundation of the genius myth on which Obama’s campaign was based.

“[Obama's] whole aura was caused by the genius of the first book,” Trump said accurately on Saturday, “which was written by Bill Ayers.”

Trump also told Hannity that “the guy who wrote the first book didn’t write the second book ['Audacity of Hope'].”

This is a point that Ayers had himself implied a few weeks back at Montclair State University when he praised “Dreams” – and claimed credit for writing it, albeit with a wink – but dismissed “Audacity” as a “political hack book.”
