Satire


The image above is an example of Satire because, the author criticizes Obama’s choices with spending the U.S money. Obama is spending way too much and not on the right things. The cartoon tells you that by emphasizing the money in the “fatty foods” making the man really fat and unhealthy. Then, the author ties in Michelle Obama’s Nutrition campaign by making Obama say, “Whatever you do, don’t let Michelle see you!” Which shows Obama not really helping or following what he says, or Michelle says. This cartoon is Horatin Satire. The author tries to let people know his view of the bad decisions Obama is making and turns his message in a witty humorous way. Some elements of Satire the author uses is: Irony [verbal], hyperbole, Innuendo, and farce.
