How do you poke fun at a man who's so absurd he practically satirizes himself? Even two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Mike Luckovich admits it's been a challenge covering the Cheeto-in-Chief in his internationally syndicated political cartoons.

Shelves: satire, political
This book is a brilliant satirical account by a brilliant artist about a sad man. The authors amazing cartoons bring me hope and scare me at the same time. I know there are a lot of people that are aghast at a Trump presidency (or even the thought of him not in prison) but there are still a lot of people who still support him despite his countless transgressions and often the hypocrisy of doing so.

The author is part of the resistance and his conclusion summarizes my sentiments on the sad joke

Like the lady said in the song, "Nobody Does It Better". Luckovich's take-no-prisoners approach to capturing the lunacy of the Trump Era in editorial cartoons brings a continuous stream of hilarity (no, that's not a Clinton reference!) that really Helps America Keep Its Sanity. This collection is priceless and so is living in the artist's home base, where we get to see his work regularly.

Up to your Interptetation

I had lots of laughs Luckovich has a great way of satarizing the my truth. If you think Trump is a great president you will not enjoy this book Check out Dumpty if you enjoy this book.

He cartoons my mind! Only BETTER!
Anyone needing a chuckle, at Trump's expense, needs to read this book. It was a JOY!

A lot of Trump-bashing editorial cartoon by Mike over at AJC in Atlanta. It can't be healthy carrying around that much hate for one man.

Excellent and couldn’t be any truer

Every entry was spot on...unfortunately. Excellent read! Hope we can get to a truly stable government sometime soon. Tired of all the losing.

There weren't nearly enough cartoons! Mike like Rob Rogers is a political cartoon genius. Now, I'm going to read it again.
