FDR had radio. JFK had TV. Trump has Twitter. Eisner-winning cartoonist Shannon Wheeler depicts the "fire and fury" unleashed daily on Twitter by Donald Trump, our "very stable genius" and president. For the first time, these revealing snapshots of the world’s most powerful man are collected, curated, and brought to memorable new life as cartoons.
Some people are saying, I don’t know, you tell me, but a lot of people are saying this is the greatest book of the year. This guy, Shannon Wheeler, he draws these cartoons for the New Yorker, MAD, the Onion — he’s very, very, good, okay? Now he’s illustrated the most incredible tweets. Wow! You won’t believe what he does with these tweets. I mean, these tweets changed the world, folks. It’s true! It’s very true. EVERYONE is going to want this book — even the haters and losers (Sad!).
In Sh*t My President Says, Donald Trump's most revealing tweets are transformed into razor-sharp cartoons, offering a subversive and illuminating insight into the mind of the most divisive political figure of our time. Whether you love him or hate him, this take on Trump will help you come to grips with the man and his ideas thanks to Wheeler's signature mix of slapstick and sophistication.

"Shannon Wheeler drew a book I wish I had thought of; that's the ultimate compliment I can offer in 140 characters! #buyit #wheelerisagenius" —Jack Ohman, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning
"A book of cartoons written by a living caricature and illustrated by one of the best cartoonists working. It’s like peanut butter and chocolate! Or maybe unregulated toxic waste and chocolate. In any case, it perfectly captures the grim absurdity of life in the darkest timeline." —Tom Tomorrow, creator of This Modern World
"An edifying distillation of the Orange One’s oeuvre, with pictures… [Wheeler] gives us reason to snicker rather than cry." — Kirkus Reviews
