Who is Nick Adams? Trump's 'favorite author' slammed for calling Whoopi Goldberg 'terrible'
Conservative political commentator and author Nick Adams, who shot to fame after former president Donald Trump tweeted about his books, has now come under fire for criticizing veteran actress Whoopi Goldberg. Adams was lambasted by netizens for his problematic tweet about the Oscar-winning actress. "Whoopi Goldberg is one of the worst things that ever happened to America. Terrible actress and terrible person," Adams tweeted recently.
His tweet comes after Goldberg engaged in an on-air argument with Meghan McCain on ABC's talk show 'The View'. They were discussing President Joe Biden's confrontational response to the media about his meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin. While McCain said Biden's bad attitude was "100% Trumpy", Goldberg defended Biden saying that he apologized for his behavior which was uncharacteristic of Trump. Soon their spat escalated on personal levels, prompting the network to cut to commercial. Meanwhile, Nick Adams' tweet criticizing Goldberg received over 3,730 likes, but most Twitter users chose to school him about the outstanding achievements of the senior actress.

Who is Nick Adams?
Born and raised in Australia as Nicholas Adamopoulos, Adams later settled in the USA and has written two notable books on Trump and his politics. A survivor of childhood cancer, Adams attended the University of Sydney and was even elected as one of the youngest Deputy Mayors of Ashfield at 21.
While still attending university and serving as a Deputy Mayor, Adams earned criticism for missing council as he was traveling to the USA frequently as a motivational speaker at events. In 2009, he was suspended for 6 months by the Liberal Party of Australia. Afterward, Adams emerged in prominence in USA as a frequent guest on Fox News and other conservative media outlets. In March 2017, Adams gained nationwide popularity overnight after Donald Trump tweeted about his book 'Green Card Warrior', calling it a must-read. A few months later, on August 25, 2017, Trump again tweeted in appreciation of Adams' book 'Retaking America'. "Nick Adams, "Retaking America" "Best things of this presidency aren't reported about. Convinced this will be perhaps best presidency ever," he wrote.
The tweets prompted Adams to dub himself as 'President Trump's Favorite Author', as evident from his Twitter cover photo. He has also written a third book titled 'Trump and Churchill - Defenders of Western Civilization'. However, Adams' tweet about Goldberg did not sit well with most Twitter users, as one of them responded, "Whoopi Goldberg is one of only 16 people to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award. Nick clearly doesn’t know wtf he’s talking about." Another user tweeted, "I suspect he’s just miffed that the only accolade it seems he’s racked up is being “president Trump’s favorite author”…."
"Dude…I don’t respond to many people on here, but I’ve worked with Whoopi, & she is truly one of the kindest, most generous, humble, & warmly human people I’ve ever met. America can be proud of her AND her talent. Stop slandering her to promote urself. You’d be lucky to know her," a third user shared.
"She has an Oscar. You don't," another user kept it simple and short.

Adams, however, chose not to engage with his critics as he continued tweeting in favor of Trump and other conservative politicians. In one of the latest tweets, he said, "Presidents are temporary, Donald J Trump is FOREVER!" He also retweeted a petition to ban Olympian hammer-thrower Gwen Berry for 'disrespecting' the national anthem.
