Joe Biden keeps this simple comic strip on his desk -- here's what it says

Former Vice President and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden announced Sen. Kamala Harris of California as his running mate on Tuesday, finalizing the Democratic ticket for the 2020 presidential election.

But Biden's announcement also drew interest for other reasons, particularly after his campaign released a photo of what appeared to the exact moment.

The photo revealed Biden holding a phone while video-conferencing with Harris on his laptop. And behind his laptop revealed a framed comic, one that holds a special meaning for the Democrat.

The comic is a simple two-frame piece from Dik Browne's "Hägar the Horrible," a 1970s-era comic strip of a charming viking from the Middle Ages, according to comics subscription website Comics Kingdom. "Hägar the Horrible" has appeared in numerous advertisements and pop-culture references, in addition to nearly 2,000 newspapers.

1. In November, it'll be Cheeto Benito crying out 'why me?'

And the reply: ‘I dunno, Donnie. There’s something about you that pisses me off.’

2. Joe's desk is that of a well-rounded man.

It has work equipment (computer, pens), mementos that show his connection to people,
cartoons for humor, and a lamp so he can work into the night, displayed but leaving space for work.

Chump's desk (as president), on the other hand, is as empty as he is - no work supplies, no mementos, no paper showing accomplishment, no reading material, and no light to extend his day.


Now, contrast that with Chump's desk when it meant $$$ directly into his pocket:
