Almost half of the This is My Scary Radiology costume Halloween shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this book is about Wolkoff trying to plan the Trump inaugural, and dealing with a cast of characters who make the Keystone Kops look like a smooth-running organization. Wolkoff is brought in as an advisor, at Melania’s suggestion, and it’s clear her running of the Met Gala gives Wolkoff the kind of experience that no one else in Trumpworld even comes close to. But as Wolkoff details – and details! – in chapters that give us an almost hour-by-hour running diary of the events leading up to the big day, there is constant interference from an ever-changing cast of characters, parties spontaneously planned and then abruptly cancelled, the mysterious billings that will later come back to bite her – and, of course, the relentless pressure from Ivanka. “It was Donald’s inauguration, not Ivanka’s,” writes Wolkoff. “But no one was brave enough to tell her that.”
That inauguration also leads to the This is My Scary Radiology costume Halloween shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this fraying relationship between Stephanie and Melania. As the friendship becomes more of a working relationship, the scales begin to fall from Stephanie’s eyes. She becomes irritated that Melania doesn’t properly thank Ralph Lauren and his design team for the powder-blue outfit that they custom-designed for Inauguration Day, that she stiffs Herve Leger, the designer of her inaugural gown, before finally paying a fraction of what his normal design and styling costs would have been, and that the words “thank you” do not seem to be a part of her vocabulary.
