Political Satire for Progressives

Available now in a single digital-only volume of four books: Echoes from Saddam HusseinObama on EdgeKing Donald, and Down Goes Trump. In his signature style, George Thomas Clark combines satire and creative writing to illuminate many historic developments this century.

Echoes from Saddam Hussein – Saddam Hussein and George W. Bush candidly explain their need to control the destinies of countries, regions, and, ultimately, the world. Osama bin Laden, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Karl Rove, and other notables, not all famous, also demand part of the stage.

Obama on Edge – Grandfather Onyango Obama launches the book, advocating pride and vigorous self-defense. Barack Sr. admits his intelligence and professional success are imperiled by a lethal drinking problem. And young Barack Obama discloses his efforts to control vices and establish racial identity. Then the young man recalls his efforts to forge a political career. Opponents Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Sarah Palin counterattack while John McCain charges the inexperienced politician doesn’t understand big league power and diplomacy. Hillary Clinton questions his American values. Mitt Romney challenges Obama’s honesty. Mahmoud Ahmadenijad , Osama bin Laden, and others are also combative during this historic time.

King Donald – A rough real estate baron and TV star, Donald Trump, batters Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and ultimately Hillary Clinton on a wild journey in the most unlikely political race in U.S. history. Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, Vladimir Putin, and Benjamin Netanyahu also comment on the campaign.

Down Goes Trump – This creative work covers the entertaining but often absurd events after Donald J. Trump is elected president, in November 2016, until shortly after his loss to Joe Biden four years later. Trump is the star but often challenged by allies and opponents Melania Trump, Vladimir Putin, John Bolton, James Mathis, Rex Tillerson, Kim Jong Un, Maxine Waters, Meryl Streep, and Joe Biden. Historical figures who energize the story include Martin Luther King, General Robert E. Lee, Joseph Stalin, and Babe Ruth.
