Doonesbury cartoonist on why he's drawn to Trump's 'unthinkable' character
Pulitzer prize-winning cartoonist Garry Trudeau has been drawing — and skewering — U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump for more than 30 years. Including a prediction that Mr. Trump would one day run for the country's top job.
A new compilation of Trump-related cartoons are in Trudeau's new book, Yuge! and he tells The Current's Anna Maria Tremonti why he is so drawn to drawing Trump.
In the 30 years Trudeau has been drawing Trump the only thing that has changed in his cartoons are Trump's physical features — including his famous — or infamous hair.
"I go all the way back to when Trump had brown hair ... But then you know as the years went by he turned into this aging strawberry blonde and then [he] set his hair on fire to run for president," Trudeau tells Tremonti.
Trudeau says drawing Trump is an experience.
