Since the tumultuous days of the Nixon Administration, every U.S. president has felt the sting of Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau's acerbic wit from time to time.
No chief executive, however, has provided Trudeau with more rich material than Trump - and he's only in the second year of his administration! Doonesbury, of course, has been following Trump since he was a brash, self-aggrandizing New York hotel developer in the 1980s. Much of that work is captured in the 2016 bestseller, Yuge!: 30 Years of Doonesbury on Trump.
Now, there's another Doonesbury book about the president. September 18 marks the release of #SAD!: Doonesbury in the Time of Trump, which chronicles the shocking election victory, and the tumultuous eternity of our president's first 500 days in office.
Featuring Doonesbury Sunday cartoons selected from the past three years, #SAD provides a precise (some may describe it as "sad") depiction of President Trump's behavior and today's toxic political climate.
Trudeau notes in the preface of #SAD: "Just because two-fifths of the country are still in the thrall of a humongous con 'like no one's ever seen before,' doesn't mean that the rest of us - apppalled, disenfrachised, writhing in embarrassment for our country - should forgo the comfort of laughter. At this benighted moment, it's all we have."
