During the original Gilded Age, cartoonist such as Nast and Keppler held up a mirror to the foibles, if not corruption, of the political class. In this new Gilded Age of Trump, cartoonists Tom Toro, R. Sikoryak, and Emily Flake join New Yorker cartoon editor Emma Allen for a discussion of contemporary cartoon satire.
