Disgraced journalist Mark Halperin, who was famous for his "Halperin hug" and was fired from NBC recently released an anti-Trump book.

It was a total failure.

Reports indicate that the book struggled to sell 500 copies.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Disgraced former MSNBC analyst Mark Halperin’s book How to Beat Trump: America's Top Political Strategists On What It Will Take sold 502 copies during its first week, according to NPD BookScan's Wednesday report.

Not many Americans purchased Halperin's book this week despite the description on Amazon that claims, "more than 100 million anxious Americans want to know: how can Donald Trump be beaten in 2020 and evicted from the White House?"

Just six reviews of the book have been posted to Amazon, one of which is titled "Write what you know, Mark." In it, user Ball Student wrote, "He'd be better off avoiding speculation and sticking to areas he has extensive experience in: groping female employees."

Halperin has faced numerous allegations of sexual harassment and assault, and the news of his book contract with Regan Arts has drawn a substantial backlash. CNN reported that 12 women came forward publicly to accuse Halperin of sexual harassment or assault, which he denied.

A former ABC colleague claimed that anyone aiding Halperin is just helping to re-traumatize the victims.
