I thought these people weren’t supposed to have a sense of humor! Introducing Iran‘s Trump Cartoon Contest.
Over 550 people from 75 countries sent in their creations all depicting President-Select Trump in various Twitter-worthy modes of defamation.
One of the event organizers, Masud Shojaei-Tabatabai, stated that “the -ism in Trumpsim is a direct reference to racism and Nazism.”
First prize in this Trump cartoon contest went to fellow Iranian Hadi Asadi who depicted Trump drooling in a jacket made of dollar bills with his hair flaming upwards obscuring a map of the world. He won $1,500 for his effort.
The one I saw that I liked the best had Trump in full enraged mode wearing a Captain America uniform using an upside down Statue of Liberty like Thor would his hammer while holding a shield made of bricks (as in the type he would use in building his ‘wall’).
According to Vox.com anti-American rhetoric had quieted a lot in Iran when the great orange-haired one first was elected, but that has now returned in light of his recent combative stance towards Iran.
