Judith Bernstein, “Schlongface Jester 5” (2016), acrylic on paper, 30 x 42 inches (image courtesy of the artist)

We have a president who is a joker, a jester, a racist, a sexist, a sociopath and perhaps a psychopath. An evil genie out of the bottle. His followers shout his name as a taunt at anyone who isn’t white like them, and wear his snarling image on their black “Make America Great Again” t-shirts. He wallows in the gutter with his cronies, flunkies, lackeys, and suck-ups, but he can’t drag the whole country there with him. His poll numbers are sinking and the Resistance is growing. It’s the Year to Raise Your Voice!
