News post – Catch-23 No. 911 Trumpression

Ouch. I thought I felt bad when Tony Abbott was elected Prime Minister in Australia, but President-Elect Trump feels a million times worse.

The day it was announced that Trump had won, the financial markets plummeted in a way not seen since September 11, 2001. In an odd coincidence, this is my 911th comic strip.

The most worrying thing isn’t what I think Trump will do – that would require him to actually follow through on something ever. No, the most upsetting thing is that all the us-vs-them, racist, misogynist, homophobic and anti-intellectual guff that was expelled from his Trump-hole during the election found willing ears out in America. Trump, despite having no political experience, did what actual politicians do: he told the people what they wanted to hear. The troubling part is that they wanted to hear this kind of thing in the first place.
