Mad Magazine Destroys Obama's Taliban Swap
3 Jun 2014
Count Mad Magazine as the first pop culture institution to target President Barack Obama's Taliban prisoner swap.
It's hard to imagine any other humorist in any other medium hitting back quite so hard in the days to come.
The magazine posted a fake movie advertisement for Trading Private Bergdahl, a takeoff on the Oscar-winning film Saving Private Ryan.
The one-sheet features five Taliban soldiers and President Obama with this kicker:
"They got five Taliban leaders. We got one deserting weasel."
