Abstract / Description

This introduction by the editor to the Special Issue on ‘Donald Trump, the Presidency and the Media’ outlines the issue’s theme and articles on the topics of the relationship between Trumpism and a ‘neo-liberal mediascape’, ABC’s 1977 historical miniseries Washington Behind Closed Doors as a prescient warning of the Trump presidency, the representation of Trump in the cataloguing and use of stock music, graphic novels’ depiction of Trump through form and style and cosplay activism drawing on Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale as a feminist response to the Trump presidency.
