The Doonesbury Trump retrospective proves that Garry Trudeau had Drumpf's number all along

On September 14, 1987, Garry B Trudeau ran the first Doonesbury strip that mentioned Donald Trump, in which his characters marvel that New York's "loudest and most visible asshole" had floated a political trial balloon, hinting that he would run for president; thus began 30 years of marveling at, mocking, and skewering Der Drumpf, so rattling the Short-Fingered Vulgarian that he felt the need to issue a series of wounded denunciations. Now, just in time for the election, Trudeau has released a collection of his Trump-themed strips, Yuge: 30 Years of Doonesbury on Trump, just the thing to put the Republican nominee on tilt.

I did not know any of this-- TRUDEAU ROCKS!!!

8. I have every one of his Doonesbury books except for this latest.

Trudeau was an anchor of sanity all these years, when the reigning Repub. morons provided such depressing news.

9. During the first Gulf war under Papa Bush

my son served on the USS Wisconsin in the Persian Gulf. Fired the first shots of the war. I'd send him the Doonesbury strips showing the Army stuck in the sand and heat while the Navy played cards on the ship complete with air conditioning. That was pre internet. Got him hooked on Doonesbury too.

7. I've read Doonsbury since Carter's campaign. Jimmy down by the creek with John Denver.

Something like that, I can't remember the details. I voted for John Anderson, because they had called it for Reagan already out west. I don't know how many half-wits have told me they hate Doonesbury. I think I have always felt they don't deserve to get it.
