Just when you thought that the politiks of electioneering were over David Campiti and Glass House Graphics drag us all back in! In the spirit of the hilarious Obama/Biden social media memes, our coolest Prez ever and his mad-dog VP plan their Exit Strategy in this photo-filled fumetti humor book! Political analysis was never anything like this!
So, unless you live under a rock, have no access to Wi-Fi, or no sense of humor, you’ve already seen and laughed at the heaps of madcap social media memes playing up the election and the “bromance” of President Obama and V.P. Joe Biden. They’re the funniest things on the net…as well as a very necessary cathartic release after the most antagonistically and vicious American election in decades.
Now you can — if not celebrate the changing of the political guard, at least laugh at it with Exit Strategy: Barack Obama & Joe Biden’s Final Days Before a Trump Presidency — have a good laugh or three! This 52-page full-color book (digital and print versions available) is chock-a-block full of hilarious, imagined behind-the-scenes banter from our outgoing leadership, presented in photos-and-word-balloons “fumetti style” by a former international consulting editor for MAD Magazine!
When the 2016 Presidential campaign cycle began, Democrats offered up only three possibilities while Republicans boasted more than 20 candidates — before whittling down to the celebrity television billionaire with no filter and a heap of lawsuits and the career politician with oodles of experience and heaps of Faux New scandals and no court dates (and apparently no emails). In the end, (so-called) billionaire, trust-fund crybaby, and 1 A.M. twitter bully Donald Trump won the Electoral Vote and became the President of us all. (Gaaaa!)
For some voters, the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency of the United States of America was a shock; for others, it was an inevitability. Either way, the Obama Administration prepared for a peaceful transition of power to its successors. Needless to say, peaceful doesn’t necessarily mean a smooth transition. As eztensively documented by social (and actual) media, the even-keeled President and cantankerous Vice President, has widely been chronicled across America, and had gone from ribbing good-naturedly to downright acrimonious, as this book’s riotous recounting of faux news reports. To be sure, we can only imagine the behind-the-scenes conversations the Obama Administration has or will have had before the transfer of power to the Trump Administration. But we can sure speculate hilariously. So, whether the January 20th, 2017 Inauguration brings you joy, indifference, fear, or blackout drinking; the Campiti team of crazies hope that this book can make you laugh at the absurdity of the reality in which we all live.
Whatever your political affiliation, join Campiti and crew in this nonsensical analysis of the strategies behind the scenes of Obama’s final days — as only the idiotic internet, could report it! In addition to all of the above, the book also contains real quotes from our President-elect, which are as wild as anything we’ve made up! Backers can receive not only digital downloads and beautiful books of Exit Strategy, because it’s really the most ideal format for our internet-obsessed world. Still, Campiti understands that there are still some old school folk out there who still prefer the permanence of a real, honest-to-G-d physical printed book, so he’s offering a heap of those as well.
So here is what you can get with your pledge of (financial) support:
- Just the digital edition.
- OR just the printed book.
- OR the digital edition and the printed book.
- OR the motherlode of an autographed printed book plus the digital download plus two bonus joke screen savers. Something for everybody. It’s your choice — your vote
- OR a gift pack of 10 — count ‘em, 10! — autographed Exit Strategy books, great for Holiday stocking-stuffers or giveaways to your pundit pals!
