Kidnapped: The True Story of How I Made America Great Again

How does an upper middle class, suburban, mother-to-be go from golf lessons to waking up with the Republican candidate for United States President tied to a chair with a hood over his head in her basement? And why? Who benefits? And who has the power to cover it up?
So begins “Kidnapped! The True Story of How I Made America Great Again.” Based on the soon to be HUUUGE best selling book, this is the story of a motley crew of Real Americans and their struggle to take back their country. It is the story of Thomas and Pamela Perry: a simple Middle Class, Middle American couple, who find themselves, like so many Americans do, in over their heads. It is the story of closed door meetings between TV Preachers and the daughters of real estate tycoons. It is the story of a Golf Instructor’s forbidden love. In short, it is the story of the dissolution of The American Dream. A dream once bold enough to tear down walls, now on the verge of melting through the fingers of it’s own tiny little hands.
