CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, Dec. 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Richard A. Pundt offers a timely political satire that humorously brings into focus many of the bizarre events that have taken place in the United States for the past three years in his new novel “The Trumpestiad: A Sad American Comedy” (published by Archway Publishing).


Assessing the Trump Presidency from a satirical point of view, the book aims to show “a sad but humorous view of the total disregard that Donald Trump has demonstrated for the Pillars of Truth.” In “The Trumpestiad,” the Pillars of Truth (ethics, integrity, honesty, loyalty, courtesy, reverence, honor and justice) are portrayed as pure and elegant beings that Trump has sent to Hell. Due to inadvertent tweets by Trump, the Greek god Apollo and the personification of Dearth join Uncle Sam on a quest to retrieve the Pillars of Truth from Hell. Ultimately, Trump must face a jury composed of individuals whose rights he has destroyed during his four years in office.


“The central theme of the book is the regrettable loss of truth during the four years of the Trump Presidency,” Pundt says. “Upon completing this three act play, it is expected that readers will have a lasting memory, an imprint, of how perverse the Trump Presidency has been.”


“The Trumpestiad” is available for purchase online at the Archway link above, at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Trumpestiad-Sad-American-Comedy/dp/1480896853.
