Abstract [en]

Alec Baldwin helped many Americans come to terms with Trump's election as the President of the United States by playing a satirical Trump. In one of his first Saturday Night Live (SNL) speeches, he begins by stating, "Yes, this is real life, this is really happening." He continues on stating with a sarcastic tone: "We have got some of the biggest performers in the world lined up. Hold onto your tits and bits because we have got Three Doors Down." Today, figurative language and sarcasm are more relevant than ever. Whether people are looking for comedic relief, blaming comedians for Trump's rise to power, or trying to decipher what exactly Trump meant in his latest tweet, theories of sarcasm are necessary tools for social scientists, political analysts, and comedians alike. After nearly two decades, John Haiman's "Talk Is Cheap: Sarcasm, Alienation, and the Evolution of Language" remains a valuable tool as an encyclopedia of sarcasm, enumerating the ways in which speakers use and mark its expression. This book also serves as a great resource for literary and cross-linguistic examples of the various facets of sarcasm. For the purposes of this review, we will focus on sarcasm in the English language, specifically using the sarcasm surrounding President Trump as a case study.
