Now that much of the Republican party and the U.S. population is anti-Trump, the question comes up – is he nuts? Will he become extinct? Is he like a kangaroo boxer, buffalo, baboon or other animal in the way he fights with almost everyone – from rivals to other politicians and members of the media.
Three new cartoon books – Trump Is Nuts!, Trump Is Extinct…Or May Be Soon!, and Trump Is an Animal! – suggests that these scenarios are or will soon be true. Trump Is Nuts! features Trump as 21 different kinds of nuts, from Walnuts, Peanuts, and Pecans to Mixed Up Nuts, a Nut Case, and patients in a nuthouse. https://www.amazon.com/Trump-Nuts-Illustrated-Guide-Coloring/dp/0692738037 Trump Is Extinct compares Trump to 27 extinct beasts and early humans, from ancient dinosaurs, flying reptiles, birds, and mammals with names like the Trumposaurus, Saber Tooth Trump, and Homo Trumpien. https://www.amazon.com/Trump-Extinct-May-Soon-Illustrated/dp/0692739300. And Trump Is an Animal! compares Trump to different types of animals including Chimpanzees, Fur Seals, and Meerkats, in which the male animals commonly fight for power, territory, and mates. There is a website for the books at www.trumpisnuts.net or www.2016electionfollies.com.
The books are part of series of books about the 2016 Election, including the 2016 Election Fairy Tales with stories like “Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Trump,” and 2016 Election Monsters, Myths and Mayhem, which features Trump as 15 monsters in mythology, such as the Medusa, Minotaur, and even the Devil. Another is The Battles of Donnie and Teddy: 4 Children’s Stories for Adults featuring young Trump and Cruz battling it out in a sandbox, playground, school yard, and backyard party. The first four books in the series are combined in 2016 Election Follies.
While the books are designed to appeal to anyone following the election – especially Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans, the books were written to contribute to the dialogue about the election – and perhaps even sway some votes.
