Real news. Fake president.
A humorous illustrated alphabet book about America's 45th President.
President Donald Trump has been a godsend for comedians and the press, and a persistent midge for critics. From day one in his campaign to his first day in office to this morning's news, he has provided rich fodder for his critics, humorists and the press.
Trump From A to Z comes out of the gate blazing. Mischievous humor lights a match under the most shocking, controversial and predictable of the activities, political faux pas, personal insults, missteps, lies and exaggerations that Americans and the world have witnessed during his campaign and his White House on the golf course. Witty caricatures of the man himself and editorial cartoons add to the absurdity.
From the brief spreads organized under titles like Trump Bashing; Bikers for
Trump; Demagogue; The Godfather; Nuclear; and Trolls for Trump, come these examples of the 150 A to Z entries:
- It was reported that during the first week at the White House, Trump's advisors were meeting in the Cabinet Room in the dark. They could not find the light switch located next to the door.
- Conspiracy plots. Trump loves them. Obama was born in Kenya. ISIS was created by Hillary Clinton. Vaccines cause autism. The father of Ted Cruz was involved in the death of JFK. The White House is infiltrated by incompetent fascists ... Wait, that may be true.
- Ronald Reagan. The leader of the conservative revolution of 1980-88 had much in common with Trump. Became famous on the screen. Angry with the truth. Underestimated by his party (also Republican). Nationalist. Vain. Warmonger. On the other hand, Reagan had experience (in California).
- Trump, tweet-addict, has posted more than 34,500
messages since 2009, from foreign policy to Meryl Streep and all profusely littered with exclamation marks and cap letters. It was hoped that he would stop when he entered the White House. WRONG! Trump says he is the first president to have campaigned primarily on social networks. Wrong again. It was Obama in 2008.
- Trump on climate change: "It snows and freezes in New York. We need global warming!"
- Attention capacity. 3 minutes, according to those who know him.
Needless to say, entertainment ranks supreme in Trump From A to Z. We can only wonder what will be in the second edition.
