Trump campaign tweets video of president as murderous comic book villain who loses in the end
Republicans don’t do pop culture very well. Remember Mike “My Reproductive Organs Should be Declared an EPA Superfund Site” Huckabee doing a parody of Adele’s “Hello” during his 2016 presidential run/cringeworthy performance art piece?

To be fair, Trump’s tongue is maybe two-thirds that size. From what I understand, it evolved spontaneously to allow him to reach the bottoms of Pringles cans. I know that’s not how evolution works but, you know, Trump is a genetic marvel. Or so he says.
Yo! Pennyfarthing’s Trump-trashing series is now a trilogy! Grab your copy of Dear Pr*sident A**clown: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing. It’s hot off the presses! And, of course, Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump are still selling like lukewarm-cakes, so get yours now. Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” diversions from our temporary hell on Earth.
