Donald Trump Now Satirised in Private Eye Cartoon

Donald Trump’s stupidity and bigotry are an increasing concern on this side of the Atlantic to the point where he’s wound up being satirised in the pages of this fortnight’s Private Eye. In addition to the other cartoons, like ‘Dave Snooty and His Pals’, ‘It’s Grim Up North London’, ‘Young British Artists’, and ‘The Premiersh*ts’, they’ve launched another strip featuring him, called ‘Trumpton’. It’s named after the well-loved ’70s BBC children’s programme, and is drawn in the same style as models used in the animated episodes.

In the first edition of the strip, Trump tells Mrs Ladyvoter, that if she’s voting for Hillary Clinton, it must be because she’s ugly, a lesbian or has lost her mind due to being on her period. These are all the offensive or misogynistic remarks Trump has hurled at women, who have dared to disagree with him. It’s shows just how coarse and graceless the man actually is. And as this moron could become President of the USA and leader of the free world, Private Eye are sending him up. Mind you, it’s not as if he needs much help from satirists to turn himself into a laughing stock, but it’s great to see the Eye making jokes at his expense.

And just to remind you how awesome the original was, here are the titles of the Trumpton TV series, and the rhyme about their fire brigade, to delight children of a certain age.
