Gillian Weiss on President Trump, COVID-19, and Louis XIV

CWRU historian Gillian Weiss, NYU art historian Meredith Martin, and graphic designer Bonnie Siegler have published “Trump: Superhero or Superspreader?” for History News Network. The authors compare the similar practices of “shameless self-promotion” shared by the President and the French King Louis XIV, and offer a satirical presidential medal honoring Trump’s so-called defeat of the Coronavirus.
