Ad for Book on Trump by Canadian Psychiatrist Rejected by Pinterest
Two Years of Trump on the Psychiatrist's Couch by Dr David Laing Dawson is a compilation of blog posts covering events over two years from the time Trump entered the race to the end of 2018
According to Pinterest, the ad for Two Years of Trump on the Psychiatrist's Couch violated their advertising standards. The ad was a picture of the cover of the book along with a brief description and a quote from the Hamilton, Ontario Spectator newspaper. The quote stated the book is: "a fascinating, insightful, often humorous, usually chilling plunge into the coral folds of the brain under that Cheeto-coloured scalp". Added to that was a link to Amazon.
