Comedian Michael Ian Black pens children’s book on Donald Trump
‘What do you do when you spot a wild Trump in the election season?’
Comedian Michael Ian Black may have found the best way to address the question of Trump as both a politician and a person. He’s penned the children’s book A Child’s First Book of Trump, which essentially sinks to the grammatical level of the presumptive GOP nominee. Black discussed his latest book with Stephen Colbert on the Late Show Friday night.
Last month, it was revealed that the Donald’s language erred on the simplistic, almost to a childlike degree. Trump is a man who contains multitudes, however. He’s short on yuge words, even shorter on hand size, and yet dominated the Republican field. Black’s children’s book operates almost like a Trump ethnography but with really adorable illustrations from acclaimed New Yorker cartoonist Marc Rosenthal.
This is the second kid’s book to make an appearance over the course of the election season. Jimmy Kimmel Live put together a Dr. Seuss-esque children’s book called Winners Aren’t Losers in Dec.
Filled with topical political humor and Trump’s trademark
shit-Trump-steak-eating grin, the book was a little more of a partisan look at the Donald. Sadly, it’s unavailable to the masses. A Child’s First Book of Trump, however, is real as can be and available for purchase.
