Trump Biographer Wayne Barrett Died On Inauguration Day, Let That Be A Warning

By Tony Sokol

No one on earth knew more about the new president than Wayne Barrett, America’s top investigative Trump biographer. Barrett’s book, TRUMP, THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH: The Deals, the Downfall, the Reinvention, is widely considered the “Gold Standard of Trump Exposés.” Well, Barrett died the night before Inauguration Day at the age of 71, it was announced by Regan Arts. This isn’t conspiracy-worthy, like the Vince Foster and the rest of the purported victims of the Clinton Mafia, but it is a clear warning to journalists countrywide.

“There may be no journalist who knows more about Trump than Barrett,” The New Yorker’s Jennifer Gonnerman said in a statement.

Barrett was the “supremely incorruptible investigative conscience of New York City journalism” for over five decades, according to his obituary. Muckraking reporters are “detectives for the people,” Barrett once declared. Barrett, was born in 1945, was a Village Voice reporter who covered New York City politics for 37 years. Besides the Trump book, he wrote biographies on Mayors Rudy Giuliani and Ed Koch.
