Synopses & Reviews
FDR had radio. JFK had TV. Trump has Twitter.
Some people are saying, I don’t know, you tell me, but a lot of people are saying this is the greatest book of the year. This guy, Shannon Wheeler, he draws these cartoons for the New Yorker, MAD, the Onion — he’s very, very, good, okay? Now he’s illustrated the most incredible tweets. Wow! You won’t believe what he does with these tweets. I mean, these tweets changed the world, folks. It’s true! It’s very true. EVERYONE is going to want this book — even the haters and losers (Sad!).
"Wheeler’s Trump is a rotund scamp with a mischievously fiendish spirit... instead of slinging mud that can turn matters opaque, he’s actually attempting to render a window into Trump." The Washington Post
"A book of cartoons written by a living caricature and illustrated by one of the best cartoonists working. It’s like peanut butter and chocolate! Or maybe unregulated toxic waste and chocolate. In any case, it perfectly captures the grim absurdity of life in the darkest timeline." Tom Tomorrow, creator of This Modern World
"Shannon Wheeler drew a book I wish I had thought of; that's the ultimate compliment I can offer in 140 characters! #buyit #wheelerisagenius" Jack Ohman, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning
