    Coincidentally, it was only today I learned Donald Trump was running under the GOP ticket. And the comic pretty much covers why he might just win.

    Also, I doubt this is the last Donald Trump/Duck caricature we will see.

      I don’t think we’ve seen Donald Duck’s birth certificate.

      • James Mason

        Egads, you’re right!

        more pressing than the the Duck’s lack of bona fides is that we haven’t seen his pants…ever.

        Some people might say Donald Duck has never worn pantaloons…ever…

        even when he was supposedly defending America, he went pantless.

        The shame. The shame.

        You know, if I thought it would do any good, I’d tell the Duck to high-tail it out of here. I would tell him to just, Go on, get! But, I doubt it would do any good. Do ya…do ya wanna know why? Do you wanna know why it wouldn’t be effective?

        Because I get the feeling he *wants* people to tell him to skeedaddle. He’s a fowl-tempered sort. We’ve all seen it. We know who he is.

        His choice…and it *is* a choice, because hat wearing, shirt wearing ducks just are not born that way… they are *not* born without pants….

        It’s his CHOICE to not wear pants
        [ ….sputter…shudder….]

        The choice to not wear pants is just Donald Duck’s way of putting his shame in our collective faces. And I, for one, am sick and tired of it. I’m just not down with his feathered crotch being squashed and stretched in my face. I just can’t take it any more. And, I don’t think America should take it in the face anymore either.

        If he were here right now I’d say to him…I’d say to him:

        Donald Duck, you fowl creature, do the country a favor. Do the country a favor and just migrate back to where you came from. Just leave, sir, for the sake of the Republic. It’s bad enough the country is on a wing and a prayer but because of you…specifically because of you…we have wings but
        […choke…sob….weep…gnashing of teeth]

        we have wings but we. have. no. prayers.

    Nice one with Lio there. More poignant since Lio’s mother is dead :|

  • I really like how Mike Peters drew Donald. It’s so funny looking.

  • chris

    It’s all because of unappealing alien design, damnit!

    • Inkan1969

      True. But Ki at least was more appealing at the opposite end of the one shown in the poster. :-)

  • Marc Baker

    I like those cartoons. Though Scrooge would have alot more in common with Trump, than Donald ever could. And yes, Hollywood needs A good spanking. Especially Disney for green lighting this bomb, and Lindsay Lohan for getting getting her comeuppance yet!

    • Funkybat

      I personally feel Scrooge McDuck has a lot more honor and integrity than Donald Trump. Trump is more like an American Flintheart Glomgold who keeps going bankrupt.

  • James Cimarusti

    If Donald hooks up with Mickey for the campaign, they can go on the Cheese and Quackers ticket ;)

    Brilliant editorial cartoon from Mr. Peters, however, there isn’t a snowball’s chance in hell that “The Donald” will get the GOP nomination. Once the campaign really begins, most Republicans will likely “duck” that move.

    However, the Donald is responsible for finally ending the birther debate and that should make many in Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign happy since they were the first to raise the issue. The always ridiculous but entertaining, Chris Matthews of “Hardball” can get on with experiencing “thrills running up his leg” once again since his previous requests for the birth certificate have been answered as well. And finally, President Obama can move on from all of the “silliness” so that he can run off to do “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” campaign fund raisers, White house parties and rounds of golf. Who is really the cartoonish character?

    Trump may be “weird” but he succeeded in getting the President to finally do something he should have done three years ago. The only reason it was released was because the polling numbers showed that the issue was not having its desired effect, that is, labeling the President’s opponents as a bunch of kooks. That’s okay, he can still continue to play the race card.

    Love him or hate him, “The Donald” has a resume filled with success. And that’s another thing the current White House occupant has failed to produce beyond academia.

      You define “success” as “multiple bankruptcy”?
