Donald Trump may be unable to repeal the Iran Deal, Obamacare, or get tax reform done, but he has accomplished the exposure of the two Americas. There is a real disconnect between Democrats and blue collar voters in the Rust Belt and elsewhere, but the Trump era has exposed a fissure far deeper than that which defined John Edwards’s doomed candidacy. The United States finds itself in the midst a Civil War between those with a sense of humor and the insufferable, the tsk-tskers who would make St. Paul blush with their hyper-literal moralism. Reporters, comedians, and late night hosts have gone all-in with the latter, but luckily two writers had the temerity to break rank and laugh as Washington, D.C., burns. Christopher Bedford’s The Art of the Donald and Rob Long’s Bigly: Donald Trump in Verse are an antidote to the humorlessness afflicting our nation. Both are quick reads and deserve to be the go-to stocking stuffer for liberal and conservative relations alike.
