The New York Times was criticised this week after it tweeted a cartoon depicting the US and Russian presidents on a date with one another.
It was posted ahead of their meeting in Helsinki on Monday.
Commentators said they were tired of homosexuality being used to mock Trump.
In Episode Two of “Trump Bites,” above, Mr. Trump’s not-so-secret admiration for President Vladimir Putin of Russia plays out in a teenager’s bedroom, where the fantasies of this forbidden romance come to life.
“Trump Bites” is a series of three short video cartoons that combine real Donald Trump audio clips with hand-drawn fantasy animations by Mr. Plympton. The video cartoons riff on Mr. Trump’s absurd utterances to illustrate the president’s tumultuous inner life of paranoia, narcissism and xenophobia.
Known for his outrageous sense of humor, Mr. Plympton is an iconoclastic animator who creates irreverent, unsettling and at times disturbing cartoons. He is best known for animated shorts such as “How to Kiss” and “Guard Dog,” and for his contributions to MTV’s “Liquid Television” in the early 1990s. Over the decades, his animations were largely apolitical — until now. The Trump presidency inspired him to extend his provocative art to political satire.
