A new children’s book has a not exactly kid-friendly message for Congress: “You have to f---ing lead.”

The $10 book, poised to be released on Oct. 16, is a sequel to one from 2017 — “Stop F---ing Tweeting and go the F--- to Sleep, Mr. President” — from the same anonymous author.


The book, written and illustrated under a Trump administration-inspired pseudonym, John Spreincer McKellyanne Huckamucci, portrays lawmakers as popular children’s characters as it rails against what it describes as their ineffectiveness.

On one page of “You Have to F---ing Lead,” images of House Speaker Paul RyanPaul Davis RyanUnscripted Trump keeps audience guessing in Rose Garden Coulter defends Paul Ryan: This is 100 percent Trump's fault The Hill's 12:30 Report — Presented by Kidney Care Partners — Trump escalates border fight with emergency declaration MORE (R-Wis.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles SchumerCharles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerGOP Green New Deal stunt is a great deal for Democrats National emergency declaration — a legal fight Trump is likely to win House Judiciary Dems seek answers over Trump's national emergency declaration MORE (D-N.Y.) are superimposed on the faces of Care Bears, with the author writing:

"Our president rages and tweets and gloats,
While our country, tired and angry, continues to regress.
You robocalled me during breakfast and begged for my vote,
So why the f--- won’t you step up and undo this mess?"

“The rich are eating the poor.
The middle class continues to bleed.
I know you’re too arrogant to answer my question.
But remember that promise you made to lead?” the book asks.

The paperback slams President TrumpDonald John TrumpMcCabe says he was fired because he 'opened a case against' Trump McCabe: Trump said 'I don't care, I believe Putin' when confronted with US intel on North Korea McCabe: Trump talked to me about his election victory during 'bizarre' job interview MORE, portraying him as an oversized baby while eviscerating lawmakers:

“We need someone with backbone, common sense and grit,
To stand up to this clown and clean up all your shit.”

Its author — who says they use a pseudonym because their day job and relatives "wouldn't appreciate my actual name being attached to books that wade into politics" — tells ITK they hope the book "lets people seethe and (hopefully) chuckle at the same time.”

The aim, according to the writer, is to create a shared experience where "people pass the book around or simply sit and read it together" as a form of "catharsis."
