  1. Absolute truth! Unlike the short-sighted Dem condemnations favored by the 20% upper middle class elite that party actually represents. MSM and pols quick to express disgust for Trump and his followers, those cliche uncouth masses the intellectual and admin elites usually consider vulgar, declasse. Explains why so few investigations of how the working class, once the strong, loyal base of the Dem party, became desperate enough to vote for someone who in no way supports any of their interests.

    But then neither does D party ruling cabal, the “centrist” neolibs. Decades ago, they abandoned the New Deal and labor to become friends of Wall St. The donor classes as a group, whether corporate or upper income, don’t care about Rust Belt suffering. Nor do the privileged want to alter an economic system that favors them. So that monstrous, mutated elephant in the room is dismissed as mere Republicanism, freed from any context which would link it to the deeply unfair economic system that spawned it.

  2. …through religious lies.

    …using imaginary God fantasies.

    …with the eternal false promises of man-made religions.

  3. Well stated. A little compassion for the duped, the damaged, and those who suffer from panicked desperation. The ultra-rich swallow us all. We are all victims. Bravo.

  4. Love it,but will my American cousins who are completely blind Anti Trumpers….intelligent people who have completely lost the plot.

  5. There is a slight flaw in the fish’s caption. In the cartoon the page is clearly being held upside down – again. How much more evidence do we need that the man can’t read, let alone comprehend, or realize?
