“I know words. I have the best words,” bragged Donald Trump, while running for—are you kidding me?—president of the United States. Well, so do we. And they’re all here in D is for DUMP TRUMP: An Anti-Hate Alphabet—26 poems and 20 original editorial cartoons about this detestable caricature of a candidate.A... It’s animus and acrimony from appalling Donald Trump,who ignores his better angels when he’s on the stump.Mix affluence with arrogance. Throw in anger, too.Stir it up. Antagonize. It’s an authoritarian stew.Although harsh in its criticism of a narcissistic bully striving to be Leader of the Free World, this is NOT a book meant to spread hate, but rather to stop it. You can’t stop a demagogue by simply rolling your eyes; sometimes you have to roll up your sleeves.As you roam through the alphabet—B is for a bigoted bully, F is for fascist fear-mongering, M is for misogyny, N is for narcissism, X is for xenophobia—you’ll laugh, you’ll sigh, and if you’re as horrified by Donald Trump as we are, you’ll want to spread the word.A portion of the proceeds from D is for DUMP TRUMP will support the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization dedicated to fighting hate, teaching tolerance, and seeking justice.
