Parody can be defined as:

“… a literary work in which the style of an author or work is closely imitated for comic effect or in ridicule.” —Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Political parody may help those of us cope who have a liberal or moderate political disposition. It may also help make bearable these turbulent political times under the growing shadow of Trumpism.

This frequently somber, sometimes humorous volume reimagines historical quotes with a keen eye focused on Donald J. Trump, Trumpism, and his Republican party.

But beware. This book can only be taken in small doses. Like arsenic.

If you read it and start feeling ill, that’s a good sign, a sign that you’ve been paying attention to what’s been going on in our country under the Trump regime.

Set it aside for a while. But never set aside your vigilance for men like Donald J. Trump.
