#SAD!: Doonesbury in the Time of Trumpby The GoComics Team
From Richard Nixon to Donald Trump, every U.S. president has felt the sting of Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau's acerbic wit from time to time.
However, you could easily argue that no president has provided Trudeau with more rich material than Trump - and he's only in the second year of his administration! Trudeau, of course, has been writing about 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. Sept. 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.
Below is a sampling of Doonesbury strips that appear in #SAD, and will take you back to just a few of many (many!) crises that have enveloped the White House - and our nation - since January 2016.
