Time for a little of the light relief that this blog’s title promised: The Donald Trump Pop-Up Book.
What would it include?
Well. there’s the Wall, which pops up as you open the book, and where pulling a tab puts on the top the famous TRUMP logo. Or you could pull a tab to pull those fleeing persecution over the wall — actually two tabs, one for each direction.
There is the Oval Office. We leave to the imagination his choice of interns. Or maybe the gold bars of Fort Knox have that an even greater effect on the pop-up.
You could also have a “decorate the Trump Oval Office,” Turning wheels lets you change portraits on the walls to his various heroes, like Putin. (Obama and Lincoln are peering through the window crying — you could even do something to move the tears.
And you could put a photo of you and your friends demonstrating outside the Lafayette Square
The almost penultimate one is tragic:
The deportation pop-up, in which you operate a battering ram on the door of a home in which one member of the family is not documented. (Maybe you do something to file litigation to stop it, and the kids and parents are back together.)
Of course, the final pair are one in which you vote, and one that lets you calculate the electoral college margin.
On the pop-up of the voter — the face of the voter on the page is mirrorized so you can see yourself voting. You can also see a huge line of voters of every kind of rainbow lined up inside and outside the polling place.
Lots of pop-up book graphics possible for the electoral college – a wipe that shows the wave of change since 2012, or a circle that turns the map “upside down,” Or a statistically validated wheel in which you estimate the presidential election percentage, and it predicts Senate and House numbers. Not to mention the link to fivethirtyeight.com.
An online version would let you load your photos into his oval office paintings, the view through the windows, you in the demonstrators against the all. You could put in your voting place and use it locally. The possibilities are endless.
Conceptual copyright reserved for now — who wants to take this one on, maybe crowdsourced? Where do the profits go? Maybe the online one could be an open-source project.
A Spanish language version would be a great citizenship and voter registration and turnout tool.
