Shannon Wheeler knows Donald Trump pretty well — or at least his Twitter account. Wheeler read the president's complete archive of over 30,000 posts and illustrated over 120 of the best tweets for his new book Sh*t My President Says: The Illustrated Tweets of Donald J. Trump. Now, in reaction to rumors that Trump (despite all advice to the contrary) plans to "livetweet" the Senate testimony tomorrow of former FBI Director James Comey, Wheeler has announced that he will live-draw Trump's livetweets, bringing vital new insight to these important contributions to American presidential history.

PRAISE FOR SH*T MY PRESIDENT SAYS
"Shannon Wheeler drew a book I wish I had thought of; that's the ultimate compliment I can offer in 140 characters! #buyit #wheelerisagenius" —Jack Ohman, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning
"A book of cartoons written by a living caricature and illustrated by one of the best cartoonists working. It’s like peanut butter and chocolate! Or maybe unregulated toxic waste and chocolate. In any case, it perfectly captures the grim absurdity of life in the darkest timeline." —Tom Tomorrow, creator of This Modern World
