TROLLMASTER: Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles Pens Amazon’s #1 Best Selling Book. It’s Completely Blank.

On Thursday, Daily Wire cultural correspondent and bestselling author Michael Knowles appeared on Fox News’ Fox & Friends to discuss his top selling book, Reasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide—which is filled with 266 blank pages, reflective of Knowles’s “exhaustive research.”

The in-depth guide was self-published and became available on Amazon just last month. Now, hilariously, it’s Amazon’s number one best selling book. Yes, number one.

“The most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date, ‘Reasons To Vote For Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide’ is a political treatise sure to stand the test of time,” reads the description of the book. “A must-have addition to any political observer’s coffee table. ‘Thorough’ –Ben Shapiro, nationally syndicated columnist and New York Times bestselling author.”

Epic trolling, indeed.

“What’s really great about this book, you can go cover-to-cover in about 15-20 seconds,” Knowles told Fox host Ainsley Earhardt. “It took a very long time to research this book.”

Upon his extensive research on the Democrats’ record on economics, civil rights, foreign policy and other issues, Knowles “realized it was probably best to just leave all the pages blank.”

When asked why the chapter titled “Values” was blank (like all other chapters), Knowles explained that he stumbled upon the 2012 Democratic National Convention, when Democrats “were deciding whether or not to include God in their party platform, and the Democrats booed God.”

“That’s not good,” said the Daily Wire correspondent. “I decided, probably, If I’m going to make a good case to vote for Democrats, probably just leave that chapter blank.”

The bestselling author then noted that the chapter on civil rights was also “a real easy one to write,” because the Democrat Party was the party of slavery, Jim Crow laws and eventually the disastrous Great Society legislation.

“The Republican Party was actually formed in opposition to slavery,” said Knowles. “The Democrats were the party of slavery; the Democrats were then the party of Jim Crow.”
