Besides just getting right into a political discussion (unavoidable) I just wanted to say I'm happy to see Randall, creator of the OTC, siding with me but also that he is stating it as simply as possible (graphical over text, though). I'm happy there's no "joke" because really this election shouldn't be a joke. If you want to vote for Trump because he's "one of the boys" and has great memes to laugh at.... well, shit, I don't know what to say to you. Anyways, just saying we have to take this seriously.
I would also have been okay if today's comic was apolitical with a blog post instead. Whatever. (Just as long as he didn't endorse Trump...not that that would permanently affect my affection for the guy....maybe for year.
Now, a few replies from reading only the first page. I'm worried I'd have too many replies that won't get read anyways, so I stop there.

The other letter would topple over. Might kill a Cueball or a Megan.

Did you blame Obama for the infogram comics in the past 8 years? Heh

Consider yourself dumped, Randall.
I don't know who you really are, but here I am, same person same account, stating my opinions on this comic without having to hide behind a fake account. It's not ironic to you that you are accusing him of being childish? He stated where he stood, didn't attack Trump and his transgressions...nothing else, not even an inappropriate and childish meta joke. Please reconsider how you view others if you think your reaction to this is anywhere close to making sense.
