Kawthar TV (Iran) Saturday aired a cartoon mocking U.S. President Donald Trump, reported the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). The cartoon referred to Trump as "Trumpet" and showed him sawing Benjamin Franklin's face out of a large $100 dollar bill so he could climb in and replace him, only to be shoved out by Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman.

"Trumpet" was also shown sitting on a toilet while playing with a bubble blower that blew bubbles containing the Twitter logo, and he was shown conspiring with Israeli PM Binyamin Netanyahu and being held in the palms of Israel.

In addition, "Trumpet" was shown running away from eggs and tomatoes that were being thrown at him, and he was "nuked" by bombs that had inched towards him as he commanded American soldiers.

Writing in Peace: The Arabian Caricature, Aryeh Stav says "By Western aesthetic standards, the imagery conveyed in Arab caricature is, above all, perceived as little more than primitive scribbling that evokes revulsion: The observer is disgusted by the spectacle of a low-grade imitation of Der Stürmer serving as the message of an entire culture in the latter part of the twentieth century.

"However, anti-Semitic Arab caricatures are not intended for the newspaper-reading public in the West, but rather for the local consumer, who, to judge from the inexhaustible supply of such material offered him, identifies unqualifiedly with what he sees." Although Iran is a non-Arab Muslim state; Aryeh Stav's analysis is applicable there as well.
