One of the best if not the best comic strips has been dropped by a Pennsylvania News Paper because of an insult to Trump.

"Go fuck yourself Trump"

Yeah, I can tell it must have been a good source of intellectual satire.

He should have been more biblical and wrote 'Go forth and multiply thyself'.

"One of the best if not the best comic strip"

You only think that because the comic is set in Maine.

A bit more information there. I believe him when he said he didn't mean for that line to get into the strip. He takes shots at President Trump all the time so no need to sneak in something like this.

"On the same day the cartoon was published, Miller referred to Trump as “President Fuckwit” in one tweet and the “gaslighting projectionist” in another."

Another Trump-hater who sounds like he has too much anger in his life. He needs to loosen up and have some fun!

Rugian I think he does have fun. I look forward to his strip before I do the crossword.

One of his best strips was about 10 years or so ago. I wish I had cut it out and saved it. Anyhow it was a couple of people looking in on hens sitting on nests. One of the hens had a KKK hood on and the caption had one of the people saying "She only lays egg whites"

Weak comic. Newspaper comics have been [small penis emoji] lame for a long time though. I mean, can you imagine getting *paid* to write Family Circus? Like, he was able to afford to have five children as the creator of the least funny comic ever made, and he was published regularly in newspapers all over the U.S.. So yeah, the bar has been set at "Go fuck yourself Trump" for a long time.

..Dilbert gets a pass in this insult logic ;p

Y2A,

Who among us has expressed support for this newspaper's decision again?

A bit of a misleading headline. He didn't get dropped for insulting Trump. He got dropped because he put an f-bomb in the newspaper.

“When I opened the paper Sunday morning and read my cartoon, I didn’t think anything of it, as I didn’t notice the scribbling that has now caught fire,” Miller said in a statement to The Post."

Uh, yeah. I, uh, didn't notice the thing that I wrote in my own cartoon.
