30 Years of Doonesbury on Trump
“Doonesbury is one of the most overrated strips out there. Mediocre at best.”
“A third-rate talent trying to get publicity on my back.”
Consider yourself warned; if you couldn’t tell from the title, the cover, or the author, Trump supporters may not appreciate this book, or my review.
Garry Trudeau may be prescient. He first ran a “Trump for President” cartoon in 1987. If only it had remained a joke.
“Analysis: Donald Trump talks to voters at a fourth-grade level.” USA Today headline
This book is a compilation of Trump cartoons that started in the 1980’s and continues up to the present day campaign, he ends prior to the first debate – so no Billy Bush, but that’s probably too easy anyway.
If you are a regular Doonesbury reader, or like me have missed a few over the years, this collection will bring home all the fun Trudeau has had at Trump’s expense over the years. And it couldn’t happen to a more deserving candidate.
“I know words. I have the best words.” –Donald Trump
That may be, but Trudeau has the last word here.
I loved it.
