Coloring books get a 2016-themed twist

Get ready to break out your crayons in support of your favorite presidential candidate — coloring books have gotten a political twist in time for the election.

The 2016-themed coloring books offer creative renderings of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s first date at Yale Law School and Ted Cruz’s 2013 speech to defund Obamacare. While some of them take a relatively serious perspective, others lend sarcastic and comical tone to the heated presidential race. One coloring book portrays Donald Trump in a Superman-esque outfit, while another envisions a “Buff Bernie” Sanders for the “Berniacs.” 

The prospect of coloring in pictures of presidential contenders need not be consigned to kids. With the growing popularity of adult coloring books, the childhood activity has been revived for an older demographic, and spectators of the 2016 race can take part in the fun.

Here are a handful of the several 2016-themed coloring books:
