Won’t someone think of the children? While millions of normal American parents still try explain how a thin-skinned, race-baiting, reality tv star Putin-puppet with dictator envy and a penchant for sexual assault became President even though he didn’t win the majority of votes, the normalization of our 45th (so-called) President continues.
Dozens of children’s encyclopedias have already been updated to include a section on (so-called) “President Donald Trump.”
As Jia Tolentino wrote for the New Yorker, “For a look at how Donald Trump’s tremendously abnormal Presidency might be normalized in the future, you could do worse than turning to educational children’s books about him. These already exist—if you include the kids’ Presidential encyclopedias with a new Trump section tacked on, there are dozens available for purchase. And they model a set of euphemisms and exclusions that help transform the shocking into the ordinary. Sometimes, it turns out, all you need is a character limit.”
For example, the description for Scholastic’s Rookie Biographies series, reads “Meet Donald Trump. He made his fortune in real estate development and later gained fame as a reality TV star. Trump changed the face of American politics in 2016, when he was elected president. He became the first U.S. president who never before held a political office or served in the military. Learn all about Donald Trump’s interesting life—and history-making election—in the pages of this book.”
Scholastic’s website features this tome aimed at first and second-graders alongside biographies of people who actually accomplished more in their lives than just peddling fake universities, bankrupting casinos, tickling the racist funny bones of disgruntled white people and playing footsie with a murderous Russian dictator.
Check out the so-called President’s bio along side Paul Revere, Pocahontas and Pope Francis. I hope you have a strong gag reflex.
The Encyclopedia Britannica for kids says Trump, “made history as the first candidate to win election to the country’s highest office without having previous political or military experience. Before entering politics, Trump made a fortune as a real-estate developer and gained fame as a reality television star.”
In a book from the “True Biographies” series, author Joanne Mattern writes, “On June 16, 2016, Trump announced he was running for president. He was an unusual choice because he had no experience in politics . . . Trump ran against Hillary Clinton. She had a lot more experience in politics . . . The race was close, but Trump won. Many people were happy.” The chapter where the “many” people who were “happy” die or go bankrupt without healthcare is still being written.
These are just a few of the dozens children’s books on the so-called President now available. Too bad they’ll have to update them again as soon as he’s impeached.
I wonder, though, at what age the publishers think parents should have “the talk” regarding so-called President Trump’s celebrity entitling him to grab random women’s “pussies” without consent?
