About the Author
MAD is the world's leading magazine of humor and satire (at least according to the staff). For over sixty years, MAD has been a cultural touchstone, publishing twisted comedy from the truly disturbed minds of its many contributors, the "The Usual Gang of Idiots." This ragtag crew of social misfits has traditionally been overworked, underpaid and, thankfully, not internet savvy enough the insults posted about them online!

If there is a silver lining to the political and cultural mess that America is in right now, it's that MAD magazine can make tons of money skewering the Cheeto-in-Chief. And while we're on the subject of Cheetos, one of the funniest bits in this book by far was "The Startling Similarities and Differences Between Donald Trump and Burger King's Mac & Cheetos." An easy shot, perhaps, but a very satisfying one--it kept my seventeen-year-old Instagramming for days. Trump is also compared to the Beast in "Beauty and the Beast," Pope Francis, and a bus station bathroom, but the less said about that last one the better. As always, MAD's writers are sharpest when they are using Trump in combination with other pop culture references, as the Simpsons-themed 2016 election guide "The Shifty & Batsh*t Show" (full disclosure: I voted for Shifty and would do it again in a heartbeat). The only drawback to this collection is having to gaze at that bloated, orange face on every page--if only Trums, advertised as "the only antacid designed to fight heartburn caused by the presidency of Donald Trump," were real!
