'MAD About Trump: A Brilliant Look at Our Brainless President' by MAD Magazine falls pretty short of brilliant, but it has some laughs liberally sprinkled throughout (pun intended).
The gags stretch back quite a few years to Trump's Apprentice show, but for the most part are from the last couple years. There are fake movie ads and comparisons between Trump and the preceding 43 U.S. Presidents. There are famous hilarious things Trump has misspoken about other American heroes.
I read MAD years ago, and it was funny at the time. This doesn't feel that funny. Maybe because the subject already has the feeling of a parody. Some of the humor feels like it just lays there. There are gags that feel like they are from a late night tv show. This isn't the MAD that I remember, but it is mildly funny.
I received a review copy of this ebook from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
