Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Ann Telnaes signs Trump’s ABC on Saturday, July 21st from noon-2pm!
Ann Telnaes creates editorial cartoons in various mediums — animation, visual essays, live sketches, and traditional print — for the Washington Post. She won the Pulitzer Prize in 2001 for her print cartoons and the National Cartoonists Society’s Reuben for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year for 2016.
Over the last 20 years Telnaes has skewered injustice, inequality, sham, hypocrisy, racism, misogyny, and corruption with her incendiary combination of elegance, wit, and moral suasion. Indeed, from the Clinton years on, no administration has been spared her fierce line and fiery indignation.
One Clinton, two Bushes, and an Obama were mere warm-ups for a President who is truly worthy of her excoriating satirical skills. The election of Donald Trump has inspired Telnaes to create a fitting response, her first original book — Trump’s ABC
, a children’s board book for adults that chronicles the high points (or low points, if there’s a difference) of Donald Trump’s first six months in office. Featuring sing-songy rhymes and beguiling watercolor drawings, Trump’s ABC
is a miniature critique and exposé of Donald Trump and his janissaries, poltroons, and dissemblers, illustrating his public policies, his personal defects, his ethical dysfunction, and the consequences of his Presidency on the lives of Americans — in a format that is cleverly designed to reflect the commander-in-chief’s attention span and mental level.
