A satire for our demented times, following the arc of Donald Trump’s career as it bends toward injustice, hits it, and then sinks still lower.

Few politicians in history have deserved lampooning as richly as Donald Trump. And few have gotten their just deserts served up as deliciously as they are in The Trumpiad, a work perceptively characterized by Stuart Klawans as “a true epic about a mock President.” In their caustic, up-roarious Trumpiad, poet Evan Eisenberg and artist Steve Brodner present a satire in verse for our demented times. Inspired by Swift, Byron, and Ogden Nash as much as by John Oliver and Stephen Colbert, Eisenberg sets the stage (“Muse, you’re fired”) and then traces our hero from the murk of his ancestry in the form of his grandfather Friedrich (an enterprising immigrant who ran a bordello) to the latest presidential high crimes and misadventures. 

Using a rakish, endlessly flexible five-line stanza he calls the Emilick—the love child of Emily Dickinson and Edward Lear—Eisenberg follows the arc of Trump’s career as it bends toward injustice, hits it, and then sinks still lower. Brodner matches the poet punch for punch, in the spirit of such great satiric artists as Hogarth, Goya, and Daumier. 

Evan Eisenberg’s essays and satire have appeared in The NewYorker, The Atlantic, The Nation, The New RepublicTime, Esquire, and the New York Times. He is the author of The Ecology of Eden and The Recording AngelSteve Brodner is a regular contributor to The New YorkerRolling Stone, the New York Times, Harper’sEsquirePlayboyMother JonesThe Nation, and the Los Angeles Times
