I loved it when you were doing Bush, and I have missed seeing the White House in your strip. I was overjoyed to see it today. As your book Yuge! shows, Trump gives you and late night show talk shows so much material. It's sad that he is where he is, and we shall see what he screws up now. May God have mercy on us. Keep us laughing.
Perfect symbol for Trump: a Cheeto. Orange salty fluff on the outside, empty inside, instantly recognizable.
Icon for DT: Donald Duck. Thank you.
Greetings from one of your transatlantic cousins. The new president's last name itself may lead you to an apt icon, as the word "trump" is old English slang for breaking wind.
The lyrics of "American Pie" keep running through my head today. Sad.
In the past I have loved how you iconized government officials; for Dan Quayle a feather, for George H.W. Bush a "point of light," for Bill Clinton a waffle, etc. My all-time favorite was Dubya's Roman helmet, which over eight years gradually lost its luster. For Trump, how about a melting creamsicle?
Since Trump is going to be our tweeting POTUS, how about using Tweety Bird as his icon.
If Schwarzenegger was The Gröpenfuhrer, shouldn't Trump be The Grabbenfuhrer? Thanks for making me laugh for so many years.
Donald Trump = Unfit For Office = UFO. His icon could be a flying saucer.
The president-elect appears to be waffling on many of his campaign promises. How about representing him as a waffle with Trump hair?
I think a great symbol for Trump would be an orange windsock -- moving in whatever direction popular opinion blows.
Prior presidential icons were pretty effective. How about portraying Trump as a loose cannon?
How should Doonesbury represent The Trumpster? One word: baby pacifier. (Okay, two words.)
Please allow me to suggest an icon for Donald J. Trump; a flame, as in "pants on fire." Thank you for your consideration.
It seems possible that Duke is related to Trump...
Earlier today, Donald J. Trump did exactly what you predicted in the December 18th strip. Like, literally, almost word-for-word, except he actually shouted down a legitimate news organization in the process. My question is how exactly do you travel through time, as you clearly did? And what are tomorrow's Pennsylvania Lottery numbers?
