The Story

KINDERTRUMP Vol.1 is a hilarious graphic novel that re-imagines what’s going on in America by putting our politicians & news figures in Kindergarten! Our media & politics have devolved into a horrible day on the playground, with no adult-supervision in sight. If you think the people in charge have been acting like spoiled 6-year-olds, you’ll be happy to watch as we literally turn them into the adult-children they are. Our story begins at MAGA Elementary, where Donny, the new kid, tries to become popular and succeed. He’s flanked by teams of kids who don’t want him to upset the status quo. Will the teacher be overwhelmed and tap out? Will the other kids force Donny to quit? Will you laugh instead of cry as you watch these ridiculous goofballs trade insults and lunchables? Find out, by taking a break from the media circus and reading KINDERTRUMP!

A Peek Inside


Mike Benedetto was born and raised in the California Bay Area (Santa Rosa, Oakland & Berkeley). His current home is in San Diego, where he’s spent the last two decades getting his graduate degree, working in various professions and starting a family. He has a BA in psychology from UCSD and a master’s degree in social work from SDSU. Mike has always believed in the benefits of pursuing multiple professional paths in order to better inform his writing and understanding of the human condition. Before his career as an author, Mike was a psychotherapist, a teacher, a musician, and a tradesman in almost every discipline of construction. He now owns and operates a residential remodeling company (BCP Remodeling Inc.), as well as a production company (Team Human Productions Inc.) for his books, music, and comedy DIY podcast. As an author, Mike draws from his experience working in blue-collar and white-collar America to create his own brand of political satire, with an emphasis on highlighting and exploring the more absurd parts of human psychology. His love affair with comedy and a never-ending fascination with the mind, coalesce into works like his first graphic novel, KINDERTRUMP Vol.1. In this satire, we see how the current state of media and politics devolves even further when emotional persuasion tactics are used to exploit basic human tendencies. This and other works by Mike, tell stories about how we aren’t who we think we are because we don’t see what we think we see.
