This is a GREAT book. It is sad that when an editoral cartoon hits spot on with the current sitting "president". He (the author) doesn't even have to make up anything!! He can take the actual bile that flows from Trumps mouth and add it to his cartoon drawings. Trump might file a law suite because he didn't get a co-writer credit. I encourage others to read this book. It points out the SAD state of affairs our country is in right now. You'll have to laugh...it will keep you from shedding tears for this country.

Unlike the Mad Magazine series of "funny" strips about Trump, that I could not read a year later, these strips, unfortunately are still talking about the big problem the US is facing with the current president. This is a collection of Trudeau's strips, he is only doing Sunday ones these days, from the lead up to the election, to Spring of 2018. The strips are funny, but not outrageously funny. It is hard to make fun of this man in the white house, because each time you think you have come up with an outrageous thing to make fun of, he does another thing. If you love Doonesberry, and have been following it since Nixon, as I have, this would be a good book to add to your collection. But if you are tried of all things Trump, I would stere away from this, as it will only remind you how crazy things are, still. Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.

To be honest, I had already started wording the beginning of the review for this book before even opening it to the first page (which is, of course, silly, stupid, predjudiced,....) I wanted to comment on how sad it was, that so much merchandise appears about the current POTUS, because a lot of the stuff out there, be it books, caps, shirts, ... and in support or potesting against, most of it feels like people wanting to make a quick buck out of the misery. AND THEN I READ THE PREFACE. And I must say, to some extend, the author has a valid point. "Satire... to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.... Satire rarely changes minds... doesn´t mean [we] should forgo the comfort of laughter": Maybe we do need all this, to numb the pain.... That being said, the cartoons in this collection are witty and clever, and (despite the subject) a fun read.

G.B. Trudeau is back to reflect on Donald Trump's first 500 days in office. Some of the satire will make you laugh, some will make you cry but it is also guaranteed to leave you shaking your head. This book is a take on how ordinary Americans are coping with the unpredictable POTUS. Emotions abound, be it desperation, worried anticipation of what will come next, shock at what used to be unthinkable, fear of the future and out-and-out laughter because sometimes laughter is all that prevents tears of discouragement. Take a peek in Doonesbury and see how ordinary citizens are adapting to the unadaptable. You will be rewarded with HUGE belly-laughs. Thank you to Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley for an e-ARC of #SAD! Doonesbury in the Time of Trump by G.B. Trudeau in exchange for an honest review.
