In this graphic biography of Donald Trump, political cartoonist Ted Rall considers him to be 'a bit of an accidental authoritarian, perhaps even an accidental proto-fascist.' So where did this man come from? Here Trump's life story is told, going all the way back to his origins growing up a rich kid in the NY suburbs. Rall shows how Trump taps into a longing among many Americans for a strongman. He doesn't make many promises; his supporters don't expect many. He'll Make America Great Again. Somehow. Trust me, he says. And they do.

This book is for everyone who just doesn't like to read. This is a short book with nice graphics. Not everyone needs a 400 hundred page book to learn about Trump and what he truly stands for.

So, nothing new here that you are going to discover or learn, but it was fun read nevertheless. Make sure to read author's afterword as well, where he nicely summarizes current situation as " This is about more than wheather Donald Trump is really a racist or wheather Hillary Clinton is truly dishonest. This is about the failure of the 2 party system, touted to schoolchildren as the best political system ever created by mankind, to address citizens' most basic needs."

Ted Rall is at the top of his game right now, biographical comics really are his best works.
Trump A Graphic Biography reminds us of things the media has forgotten or no longer reports about.
