Get a peek inside comedian Michael Ian Black’s new Dr. Seuss-inspired A Child’s First Book of Trump.
Michael Ian Black is rooting for Donald Trump. But dont worry, its for entirely selfish reasons.
Im hoping its good for book sales, the comedian says a few days after Trump took his place as the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.
Black has written a number of childrens books and multiple comic memoirs over the past several years, but the project hes talking about today is very different. Called A Childs First Book of Trump, its set to hit stores just before the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer. In a new interview with The Daily Beast, Black describes the book as a kind of field guide to the candidate.
If you were a child and you were to spot a Trump in the woods, what would you do? he asks. How would you identify it? What are its characteristics? How does it behave? How do you keep yourself safe? Think of Trump as the anti-Lorax.
At the beginning of the illustrated, Seussian book, a narrator asks, What is this strange beast you keep hearing about? Together, I think we can figure it out Subsequent pages includes jabs at Trumps small hands (Its fur so complex, you might get enveloped. Its hands are, sadly, underdeveloped) and past failures (Trump this and Trump that, and Trump buildings and steaks. Trump airplanes and clothing and several Trump mates.)
And of course, as in the exclusive page provided to The Daily Beast below, the Trump of Blacks book promises Americans they will be winning so much, you might get depressed.
