Since Newt's Pearl Harbor novels sell used for a penny on Amazon, the term "lucrative" is pure fiction.

What is also pure fiction is Newt's account of the Pearl Harbor attack, where thousands more Americans die in a 3rd wave air assault and a Japanese naval bombardment of Hawaii.

Newt deleted the tweet after several Republican descendants of Pearl Harbor veterans, who believe everything he writes... ceased to exist.
