In the past Mr. Trudeau had to make up the speech of the respective Presidents (Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama) to make the humorous political observations which I think have been the best parts of the Doonesbury strip for 40 years. Donald Trump's tweets are more unhinged and infantile than any words Mr. Trudeau (or any of his many admirers) could make up. From this distance we watch what's happening in the US with amazement.
OUR NEW PRESIDENT
Tami Stout | Matthews, NC | January 24, 2017
Thank you, thank you, thank you, particularly for the recent political satire (alt-falsehoods) about our new President. I've never laughed so hard... nor cried about the truth.
Wolfgang Beutin | Rellingen, GERMANY | January 24, 2017
Duke, his self-centered vileness aside, is also a highly political person (which is not necessarily a compliment; and yes, I know he is not real, but with Doonesbury you tend to forget), and he knew already in 1999 who the Trump voter would be. Democrats should have done their reading.
Linda Keating | Hayward, CA | January 22, 2017
The one consolation of getting the new president is looking forward to the strip's take on his administration -- beginning with the hilarious one that ran today. Keep up the good work!
Wanda Schmidt | Prospect, KY | January 22, 2017
You flatter President Trump, Garry. His fourth grade lexicon does not include the word "unprecedented."
Brent McKee | Saskatoon, CANADA | January 22, 2017
Considering the lead time on a Sunday comic, today's strip is remarkably prescient, given Saturday's statement by the new White House press secretary about how big the inauguration crowd was (not). Mr. Trudeau, you do know your target well.
Jack Smith | Whippany, NJ | January 22, 2017
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.
Nan Wallace | Endicott, NY | January 22, 2017
GBT, thanks for being part of my sanity toolbox all these years. I look forward to your Sunday offerings with as much glee as I ever did.
John Brennand | Maple Ridge, CANADA | January 21, 2017
Today's Daily Briefing item about the Jet Blue flight was a much-needed tonic. It made me smile.
Alison Schorger | St. Petersburg, FL | January 21, 2017
Perfect symbol for Trump: a Cheeto. Orange salty fluff on the outside, empty inside, instantly recognizable.
S. | Toledo, OH | January 21, 2017
Icon for DT: Donald Duck. Thank you.
John Rovira | London, UK | January 20, 2017
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.
Jerry Neyman | Quitman,MS | January 20, 2017
The lyrics of "American Pie" keep running through my head today. Sad.
Tom Kirchoff | Pittsford, NY | January 20, 2017
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?
David Irons | Anchorage, AK | January 20, 2017
Since Trump is going to be our tweeting POTUS, how about using Tweety Bird as his icon.
Julius Reuter | Guadalupe, CA | January 20, 2017
If Schwarzenegger was The Gröpenfuhrer, shouldn't Trump be The Grabbenfuhrer? Thanks for making me laugh for so many years.
Bill | Arena, WI | January 20, 2017
Donald Trump = Unfit For Office = UFO. His icon could be a flying saucer.
Stan Gibson | St. Louis, MO | January 20, 2017
The president-elect appears to be waffling on many of his campaign promises. How about representing him as a waffle with Trump hair?
Dale Polson | Orland Park, IL | January 20, 2017
I think a great symbol for Trump would be an orange windsock -- moving in whatever direction popular opinion blows.
Donald Strandberg | San Antonio, TX | January 20, 2017
Prior presidential icons were pretty effective. How about portraying Trump as a loose cannon?
