Description

A clever satire that adapts the events of the first two years of the Trump administration into a Shakespearean tragedy, loosely modeled on Macbeth, by the best-selling author of the William Shakespeare s Star Wars and Pop Shakespeare series, and a former Obama staffer who publishes historical mash-ups under a well-regarded pseudonym. No one thought MacTrump Lord of MacTrump Towers, Son of New York would ascend to the highest position in the kingdom. But with the help of his unhappy but dutiful wife, Lady MacTrump; his clever daughter, Desdevanka; and his coterie of advisers led by McBannon and McPriebus, MacTrump is comfortably ensconced in the Oval Tower of The White Hold as President of the United States, free to make proclamations to his subjects through his favorite messenger, McTweet. The O Crats, mourning the loss of their cherished leader O Bama, won t give up without a fight. They still remember the disastrous reign of George II and his ill-fated Crusade, and they can see Putain s dark influence on MacTrump even if his foolish councilor, Fooliani, denies it. Their greatest hope is McMueller, who is tasked with investigating the nefarious plot that empowered MacTrump s rise to the throne. As Desdevanka schemes to overthrow her father s councilors, and as Donnison and Erikson trapped in their own buddy comedy prove useless to their father, MacTrump soon realizes he has no true allies. Will he be able to hold onto his throne? Only time will tell in this tragicomic tale of ambition, greed, and ineptitude.
