"John Bernard Ruane's The Real News is funny and timely!"
– Comedy Legend, Robert Klein
"The Real News! blends political observations, satire, and fiction in a refreshingly different perspective about Trump that uses a series of satirical stories about Trump and his media whirlwind to poke thought-provoking fun at his presidency... Political humor that comes to life in a pointed discussion of Trumpisms and their impact on social and political circles makes for both enlightening and entertaining reading, especially recommended for those tired of the usual rants and raves from either side, who want a different tone with an overlay of serious irony."
– Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
"What separates this book from so many of the articles written about this unbelievable time we live in is Ruane's ability to look and poke fun at situations without being mean or callous. Whether you reside politically on the left, right, or in the middle, you will laugh, cringe, and probably nod your head at Ruane's non-partisan take on how we arrived at this place in time... The book is a quick, fun read, with each chapter/story self-contained. I would recommend this book to anyone tired of trying to make sense of the seemingly senseless world. Take a break from your anger, frustration, and worry; just relax and have a good laugh."
– Ed Sarna, Windy City Reviews

– MsTri, Online Book Club
"This satirical collection gives us "the REAL news" that we've never heard before, and it's a funny ride. The first story details a study done on hardcore Trump supporters to find out why they approve of anything he does. I was shaking with laughter by the end of that one."
– Online Book Club
"John Ruane brings together satire and politics to give us a new way to look at Donald Trump. Regardless of where you are politically, you will have plenty to laugh at here. The book is a quick, fun read, with each chapter/story being self-contained."
