Escape From Ronald Rump… Again

Matt’s latest cartoon has moved me to share a comic I drew seven years ago, the last time we went through a Donald Trump-oriented media frenzy (click for larger version).The corresponding blog post from April 27, 2004:

I sometimes watch late-night comedy shows while drawing the strip. One night recently, THREE shows in a row had interviews with Donald Trump or a sketch about Trump. When the networks want to ram something inane down our throats, they sure don’t hold back. No wonder a majority of Americans still think Iraq had something to do with 9-11, even though the White House once quietly admitted this was false (it was barely covered).

So, you see, this happens once every seven years. He’s like a PLAGUE OF LOCUSTS!

    OMG! he IS like a plague of Locusts!! so a million years ago (well OK, more like 1989 or so) I was in middle school and they diecided to have a reading period at the start of the day during homeroom. I was all over this due to my readng nerd-ness, but OH NO! the idiots in my homeroom whined and whined until our homeroom teacher (the shop teacher) diecided to read to us instead. and you guessed it, he read to us form whatever the hell it was Donald Trump’s book was at the time. for WEEKS! I wanted to gore my eyes out!
