Artwork by Hadi Asadi
Honestly, what’s not to love? Books that reflect Trump’s apparent illiteracy, a world visualized as clouds Trump hasn’t the foggiest clue about, hair-product flames that reflect his use of incendiary remarks to get attention, c-note vestments analogizing how this “swamp-drainer” has completely sold out, and drool to symbolize this world’s-most-powerful man-baby’s infantile IQ.
Hadi Asadi states he “…wanted to show Trump while trampling symbols of culture,” and added that the focus of his piece was on Trump’s “money-mindedness and war monger nature,” but he’s done so much more.
Participating in Iran’s 2017 International Trumpism cartoon and caricature contest, Asadi has shown us that Iranians aren’t the art-hating caricature Trump and his regime-changing ilk would have us believe, and reminded us all of the power of art: which can turn powerful people from unassailable threats of impunity to mere subjects of scorn. As far as we’re concerned, it’s exactly what the world needs and what Trump deserves.
