Barron Trump, Manga Star
While Trump himself has a very divisive sort of popularity, the same can't be said about the Trump children -- Ivanka, Donnie Jr., and the one who looks like a hardboiled egg with a face drawn on it. His spawn are nigh-universally ridiculed, constantly putting their feet in those mouths they can't ever seem to fully close. But one Trump kid is exempt from this ridicule: Barron, the unassuming, sweet-looking 12-year-old who actually has to live in the White House with his mom and dad. Making fun of a kid is not the nicest thing to do, so two sensitive artists have gone the other direction, trying to delve into the mind of this quiet boy and figuring out the turmoil he must feel from having the most powerful terrible father in the whole world -- in fabulous manga form, natch.
Yuusuke Hori"At least it's not a racist amphibian."
This very melodramatic piece was posted by artist Yuusuke Hori right after Trump's inauguration. It shows Barron in sparkly bishonen form with a title that reads "My loud, annoying dad is president, so the quiet unassuming life I wanted is completely over." It was only meant as a silly mockup cover, but because it got insanely popular, we eventually got the for-realsies The Adventures Of Barron And His Loud-Mouthed President Father, and it's everything we've ever wanted.
Joy LingWell, except for Trump not to be president, but still.
To all the non-otaku out there, TAOBAHLMPF (created by Brooklyn-based artist Joy Ling) sees Barron, who really just wants to "watch Netflix and play Pokemon," teaming with Sasha and Malia Obama to solve the puzzle surrounding a "mysterious anomaly" that appeared after his father took office -- which is not a polite way to refer to Kellyanne Conway. We don't want to give away too many spoilers, but one of the central conflicts revolves around Barron trying to persuade his father to help put things right. Oh, that's right, Donald Jerwillickers Trump makes an appearance, or at least the DJT from the universe where he doesn't believe that exercise is a liberal plot to sap his precious bodily fluids.

Art is great for letting some of the tension out, in case that's a thing you need to do in this day and age, so maybe pick up some Bob Ross oil paints?
