Video: Garry Trudeau Talks About His New Book "#Sad"

Garry Trudeau was at the Politics and Prose bookstore on October 1st to talk about his new book "#Sad."

As Trudeau reminded us in Yuge!, his collection of comics on Trump from the 1980s to 2016, the president started out as dream material for cartoonists. While he’s become more of a nightmare, the best thing to do—in addition to resisting—is to laugh. Trump still offers plenty of material, and in his new book, Trudeau, the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist behind Doonesbury who’s been practicing his craft for more than four decades, ferrets out the elements of humor in the first five hundred days of Trump’s rants, Tweets, policy flips, personnel problems, and protocol disasters.
