That's what Henry Kissinger said about Doonesbury: the only thing worse than being in the strip was NOT being in the strip.

I'm not sure if you followed Doonesbury in the 1980s, but Trump was a recurring character even then.

I remember that sequence.  Elvis came back but they had to throw him off the boat because he only sang John Denver material.

Yes! It was great. Bald, too, if I recall.

Trump instinctively understood these things, while Clinton hid from the press along with her secret email server.

And by that I mean Trump personally, not some hired gun.   As Doonesbury illustrates, he was part of the dance long ago.

He still soldiers on as a reduced pace...the Trump Game was last Sunday. Piggy-piggy...lol.

Yeah, I still read him every day, even though I've seen them before.  Only the Sunday strip is new.

Yes...I follow religiously...Bloom County, too when he wants to publish. I was a bit of a cartoonist, myself in the 1990s. Had a Canada Council of the Arts grant to produce it...my life as a starving artist.

Yeah, I enjoyed Bloom County too.  That, Doonesbury and Calvin and Hobbes kept me up many nights.  There's always one more page.  Did you publish anything?

Oh yes...it had a good run. It was connected to my work in the music industry at the time...aimed mainly at young adults.

Joe Scarborough lays it all out and scolds his MSNBC team and the press in general....they ignored that which they could not ever accept as reality...a Donald Trump victory.   We know where the "dumb" label now belongs.

They stopped being journalists...and became cheerleaders.

Yes, seen that one earlier...such epiphanies...they act like they just discovered something everybody already knew.

Cenk blew a few fuses that night...telling everybody off. They were all certainly expecting the Coronation to proceed. Did you see the one where Alex Jones steps onto his set? Give it a search if you haven't.

Yes....it was priceless.   More "dummies" are depicted smashing their wide screen televisions with Trump's picture displayed.

So much dumb to go around....for Clinton "supporters".

This still wins the Big Prize, in my opinion....repeat.

(worth repeating....over and over...lol)
