Those not enthralled with Donald Trump's ascendance have been shocked and appalled by it -- and taken by surprise. Not Garry Trudeau, who honed in early, relentlessly and deftly highlighting The Donald's profound character flaws since 1987. It's all there - the arrogance and narcissism, the callowness and sexism, the rudeness and condescension, the coarsening of public discourse; and a good portion of the Doonesbury cast has been tangled up in it. Join Duke, Honey, Earl, J.J., Mike, Mark, Roland, Boopsie, B.D., Sal, Alice, Elmont, Sid, Zonker, Sam, Bernie, Rev. Sloan, and even Red Rascal as they cross storylines with the big, orange airhorn who's giving the GOP such fits: Donald J. Trump.

"The first thing to know about Trudeau's Trump strips is that they're funny as hell...There have been many election-season caricatures of Trump, but Trudeau's been doing this for 30 years. He's practically the court artist of Castle Trump, and no one can beat him (not even Trump, whose capacity for self-parody can't be overstated)."
