Every top New York Times best-seller this year has been about Trump

Will Comey book change the narrative?

Since January, each book at the top of The New York Times best-seller list has had one thing in common: President Trump.

James Comey’s book “A Higher Loyalty” will surely keep the streak alive. Comey’s high-profile launch is also highlighting Trump’s broader effects on book sales.

The No. 1 spot on The Times’ hardcover nonfiction list is incredibly coveted real estate in the publishing industry. Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” landed there in mid-January thanks to explosive allegations and a full-throated presidential attack.

“Fury” held onto the No. 1 spot until Michael Isikoff and David Corn’s “Russian Roulette” came along in March. The book — subtitled “The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump” — was on top for three weeks.

It was dethroned by “Dear Madam President: An Open Letter to the Women Who Will Run the World,” a book by Jennifer Palmieri, the former communications director for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

The Trump connection is obvious here, too: Palmieri’s book is a reflection on Clinton’s loss and a motivational message for future female candidates.

She anticipates that Comey’s book, to be released on Tuesday, will replace her at the top of the Times list.

“I’m just grateful that I got my week before he comes in to crush my dreams again,” Palmieri half-joked on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”

Palmieri’s “again” remark was a reference to Comey’s controversial announcement about re-opening a Clinton email investigation just 11 days before the election. Clinton and many of her allies say Comey swung the election in Trump’s favor.

Until “Fire and Fury”
