The NEW Daily Don Pandemic Edition, political cartoon skewers the 45th with brilliant comic satire that covers the (hopefully) final two years of the Trump presidency.
With the.daily.don’s Instagram followers reaching 80,000, Jesse Duquette proves his brilliant cartoon accounts of the brutal Trump administration hit home. It began in the wake of the first Trump press conference that gave us the first “Alternative Fact” about inauguration crowd sizes and has continued daily, acting as a bizarre history, illustrating each daily outrage by Donald Trump.
Picking up where the first book—The Daily Don: All the News that Fits into Tiny, Tiny Hands—left off, The Daily Don Pandemic Edition takes us from Trump’s blatant attempt to cover up Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election to his recommendation that Americans ingest disinfectant to cure coronavirus, and beyond. While Trump continues to shock and horrify on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis, Duquette keeps up with the outrageous sputter that shoots out of the president’s mouth and perhaps other orifices with scathing satire that’s both hilarious and, well, sad.
This Pandemic Edition pulls together selections from Trump’s (hopefully) last two-years in office and acts, again, as a semi-accurate record of what these strangest of strange times were like for those of us who were there and lived to tell the tale. Because there is still no better method to record a cartoon presidency than with colored pencils and markers.
