Editor’s note: On February 10, 2021, our fearless leader, Larry C. Flynt, passed away, as this edition was going to press. Below is his last Publisher’s Statement. We are already feeling the loss deeply, and our June 2021 HUSTLER will be a special commemorative issue, available May 11.
It seems to be the inevitable fate of a new Democratic President to inherit a godawful mess made by the previous Republican administration. FDR inherited the Great Depression from the Hoover Administration; Obama inherited the 2008 financial crisis from George W. Bush; and now Biden has inherited a COVID-19 crisis disastrously mismanaged by Trump.
