Rabbi Altmann and his secretary were sitting in a coffeehouse in Berlin in 1935. “Herr Altmann,” said his secretary, “I notice you’re reading Der Stürmer! I can’t understand why. A Nazi libel sheet! Are you some kind of masochist, or, God forbid, a self-hating Jew ?”

“On the contrary, Frau Epstein. When I used to read the Jewish papers, all I learned about were pogroms, riots in Palestine, and assimilation in America. But now that I read Der Stürmer, I see so much more: that the Jews control all the banks, that we dominate in the arts, and that we’re on the verge of taking over the entire world. You know – it makes me feel a whole lot better!”

Remember when SatW was about cultural quirks around the world, instead of Humon fumbling through political ideology that she barely understands?
I do.

To play devil's advocate, nothing has been proven beyond Trump staffers improperly talking with Russian officials during the campaign and embarrassing emails stolen and leaked. While the email hack was probably done by Russian citizens, there's no way of knowing if it was state-sponsored or private Russian citizens. Also, there was an intrusion into voting systems in a few states prior to the election, but they only stole one official's password and username, which was quickly changed. There was no evidence before or after the election of the system compromised. And again, no evidence whether it was state-sponsored or independent criminals.

Also, also, there was lots of spreading fake news and malicious gossip, but the Internet was saturated with that sort of thing and whether Russia was willfully engaging in it any more than any other group is questionable.

All that being said, Trump is still a disgusting, lying, self-serving pig of a man who represents everything wrong with modern America.

Anyone still believing that the US is being run from the Kremlin has clearly not been watching the news for the past month. Even before the sarin attack in Syria and Trump's reaction, it was clear that the Russian government officials and many Russians were at the mercy of Trump. They were happy when Trump got elected, but not because they can now manipulate the United States and the Western; they wanted Trump because he "promised" to get rid of the sanctions the US laid on Russia's elite after the Crimea annexation and let Putin do whatever he pleases in Ukraine and Syria. They did not give a rat's hole about what was going on in the US. I don't care what your position on Russia's involvement in the US election is, but only a dumbass would believe that Trump is Putin's puppet.

Coming back to April 2017, not only has Trump done nothing with regard to the sanctions, he made a U-turn against Putin and gave him the signal that he was not going to f*** with him in foreign policy. Trump plays by his own rules and doesn't care what Putin says. Quite frankly, this is the first time I am disappointed with the comic strip for the week. Maybe I would have cut some slack earlier in the year, but now it just doesn't seem appropriate. Research needs to be done if you're going to make a comic about it.

Somewhere two men sit in a bar.

Man 1: You ever remember when that comment section of Scandinavia and the World was not full of people who had a hard time accepting that Humon can do whatever she wants with her own webcomic?

Man 2: Maybe? I was beginning to think that was simply all a dream.

Man 1: I can understand that. It's hard to remember what was actually amusing about something when it is full of more complaining and whining than a Tumblr meltdown.

Don't tell me humon have bitten into the whole "Russian election tampering hoax"
I know it can be hard for these to the left of Lenin to understand that a majority wanted a showman over a old hag.
The real problem is that Trump, and old friend of WWE founder Vince McMahon was only taking the right for a ride.
There is no way to save America, though reform.
As Mark Twain used to say; "If Voting Made Any Difference, They Wouldn’t Let Us Do It"

I'm disappointed. No matter where I turn there is constantly some complaining about Trump. It's starting to feel like a propaganda-powered brainwash. I have no say in US politics, I'm from Finland, so this is getting so tiresome. I just want to enjoy comics / series / movies without any anti-Trump moaning, for crying out loud!
