“Doonesbury is without doubt one of the most overrated strips available in the market. Mediocre at best.”
–Donald Trump, 1989
A NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER!
He tried to warn us. Ever because the release of the first Trump-for-President trial balloon in 1987, Doonesbury’s Garry Trudeau has tirelessly tracked and highlighted the unsavory career of essentially the most unqualified candidate to ever aspire to the White House. It’s all there–the hilarious narcissism, the schoolyard bullying, the loathsome misogyny, the breathtaking lack of awareness; and a significant portion of the Doonesbury cast has been tangled up in it. Sign up for Duke, Honey, Earl, J.J., Mike, Mark, Roland, Boopsie, B.D., Sal, Alice, Elmont, Sid, Zonker, Sam, Bernie, Rev. Sloan, or even the Red Rascal as they cross storylines with the big, orange airhorn who’s giving the GOP such fits.
Garry Trudeau is the “sleazeball” “third-rate talent” who draws the “overrated” comic strip Doonesbury, which “very few people read.” He lives in New York City along with his wife Jane Pauley, who “has way more talent than he has.”
