about "The Best Comic Strip Ever!"

The characters in my strip, set in Africa's Western Rift Valley, are: the Foolish Pride of lions (Leon, the haughty and lethargic King of Beasts; his queen, Leona; and their cub Lionel, an unpromising heir to the throne); Secretary Bird, a liason between the Royal Court and the rest of the animals; cerebral, man-imitating Ape, a reader of the Substandard; peevish Rhinoceros; harmless but senseless Ostrich; Crocodile, resident of the much-frequented Watering Hole, and his dentist, Crocodile Bird; Honey Badger (alias Ratel), the "Meanest Animal in the World", and his one associate, Honeyguide; Mumbo the elephant, a descendant of Jumbo and a butt of jokes about his weight and the size of his ears and nose; Duncan the dung beetle; ill-favored and unwashed Warthog; the craven, henpecked male and shrewish female hyaenas, both of them foul-smelling and perpetually at war vs. the lions; the mistaken-identity-plagued zebras; slow and superannuated Tortoise; Oxpecker, a companion of large herbivores; Hugh the chamaeleon; and walled-up Mrs. Hornbill.

Undemocratic Democrats and other leftists are wrong to protest Trump's elevation to the presidency.  Although I'm glad that Dunghillary lost, however, I'm not glad that Trump won.  For a moralist (someone whose primary concerns are matters of right and wrong) such as I, the attainment of great power and honor by a man with such defects of character is lamentable.  Soon, the exhilaration of victory will wear off, and Republicans and unaffiliated but sympathetic voters like me will realize that, although Trump is not a political antichrist, he's not a political messiah either; he's Trump.
