About

It's been shown time and again that comedy is the best way to get under Donald Trump's skin. Saturday Night Live, The Daily Show, The Late Show, etc. mock him constantly, not only because he deserves it and consistently provides material, but also because it drives him crazy.

I've been creating a comic strip highlighting the lowlights of the Trump administration since he was inaugurated, and at the rate he's going, I'll have enough strips for a book in no time. 

Producing the comic strips is a labor of love, my contribution to the Resistance. But producing the books is a job for a book printer, which means the costs of printing, binding, and shipping. Plus I have to print extra copies to send to the president and key staff members. Color printing at 8 by 10 is expensive, but the more copies I print, the cheaper it gets, so I'm using Kickstarter to gauge how many copies to print. Whether the book will be hardcover or paperback depends on the amount of money raised.

Here are a few representative samples of the strip:

You probably don't want this book if you're a staunch Trump supporter--but if you aren't, you might want to give a copy to a staunch Trump supporter.

Risks and challenges

The only risk involved in this project is that Donald Trump suddenly starts acting totally sane, leaving me with nothing to mock except his hair and his hands, but that will happen when pigs fly into the White House. So far it's been impossible to limit myself to one strip per day. Impeachment won't affect the project, as the run-up and proceedings would provide vast material.

I have created four books of comic strips featuring Evil Editor, the world's most famous editor. That's enough experience with this type of project that I am confident there'll be no insurmountable challenges.
