News post – Catch-23 No. 896 Trumping dictators

This strip started by considering the question: why is Trump immune to gaffs? He is constantly saying untrue and offensive things, any one of which would have sunk another candidates’ campaign. Yet Trump endures.

The best solution I could come up with is he was a celebrity rich guy and reality show ‘star’ long before this run at politics and after decades of hearing him say dumb stuff, perhaps we’ve accepted it as the normal state of affairs.
