Garry Trudeau is the creator of the comic strip “Doonesbury” (currently being re-run in The Guardian) and the first cartoonist to win the Pulitzer Prize. Perhaps foretelling the future can now be added to his list of talents…

Nearly thirty years ago Trudeau ran a series of comic strips satirising the narcissistic Trump’s political ambitions. They now appear almost prophetic as the strangely coiffeured one’s run for the Presidency unfolds as a clanger riddled farce.

Trudeau has continued to poke fun at Trump ever since the strips first appeared in 1987. Everything from his hair (no surprise there) to his ego and thin skinned nature have been targeted as fair game. Many of these cartoons have now been collated to form a new book titled “Yuge!: 30 Years of Doonesbury on Trump.”

MSNBC”s Rachel Maddow talks to Garry Trudeau about the book here.

Many thanks to Terry Anderson for drawing this interview to the Blog’s attention.
