Donald Trump has been lampooned by the worl'd political cartoonists
And given the billionaire's known dislike for jokes at his expense (he's repeatedly tweeted his dislike for Alec Baldwin's SNL impression of him) he'd be advised not read too much inauuaration coverage from the so-called "mainstream media " he despises.
Before and after his shock election victory in November, satirists have been lining up to take a swipe at the controversial billionaire's rise to power, as well as the US itself.
While some poke fun of Trump's appearance, mannerisms, love of Twitter and fondness for rambling non-sequiturs, others paint a much gloomier portrait of an America – and the world as a whole – doomed to failure.
It seems more than one artist views Trump as a wild and destructive force akin to King Kong – US cartoonist Michael De Adder reimagined the 45th President as the giant ape chained to the steps of the Capitol.
The motif was carried on by none other than Madonna, who shared an image by Scottish artist Michael Forbes showing an ape-like Trump clambering over the Statue of Liberty – who's bruised face had been changed to the Queen of Pop's.
The famous New York sculpture – one of the greatest symbols of American freedom – appears in many of the Trump-bashing cartoons, as several artists equated Trump's election with a debasement of American values.

Hamburg artist Lennart Gaebel drew Trump with his hand between the Statue of Liberty between the legs – a reference to his notorious "grab 'em by the p***y" comment.
Meanwhile Belgium artist Lecctr showed Lady Liberty's torch bearing arm peaking over the top of Trump's promised border wall.
And Dutch cartoonist Tjeerd Royaards' view of President Trump was subtle but clear – a star-spangled jester's hat being placed on top of the White House like a crown.
Many of the cartoons feature Trump and a worried or harassed Statue of Liberty

Most cartoonists took an unflattering view of the new President

After a wave of A-listers refused to serenade the new President, the Telegraph's Matt depicted a scene of two organisers holding clipboards with one saying: "I'm worried about the inauguration ceremony. Are you SURE Nigel Farage can sing?"
Given President Trump's repeated trashing of the so-called "mainstream media" (MSM) and "liberal elites", it's perhaps unsurprising that cartoons depicting the new Commander in Chief in a favourable light are thin on the ground.
One notable exception is pro-Trump sketch artist Ben Garrison, who tweeted a dramatic image of a youthful-looking Trump ripping open his shirt a-la Superman revealing the presidential seal underneath, apparently without irony.
