Sh*t My President Says cartoonist and Too Much Coffee Man creator Shannon Wheeler plans to spend the next few days watching the Twitter timeline of U.S. President Donald Trump closely -- so that he can live-sketch as Trump livetweets the Senate Testimony of former FBI Director James Comey tomorrow.
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.
Today, in reaction to rumors that Trump plans to "livetweet" Comey's testimony in order to be "his own spokesman," Wheeler announced that he will live-draw Trump's livetweets.
