I Thought These People Weren't Supposed To Have A Sense Of Humor- Iran Has a Trump Cartoon Contest.
According to the Tehran Times, over 1,600 entries were sent to the Iranian “International Trumpism Cartoon and Caricature Contest” this past week.
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 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.
