Shock: Satirist Depicts the President as a Monkey
August 13, 2013 - 7:30 pm
The president lampooned as a monkey was Abraham Lincoln, in 1863. He’s holding the Emancipation Proclamation.
And George W. Bush, for eight straight years.
Americans have always lampooned presidents, often brutally. It’s practically an American tradition.
In the past mocking the Preezy of the United Steezy didn’t spark opportunistic calls for Secret Service investigations. So that’s new.
