First of all, commiserations to my U.S. readers, who now have to live with Donald Trump as their leader. I really didn’t imagine that this would happen. This comic may seem facile, but I felt like I had to draw something, no matter how simple, to mark this day. I don’t want the kind of world that Donald Trump represents. I want a world that is kind and full of compassion. Aroha nui.

    Doesn’t seem facile at all. On the contrary, it’s a pretty accurate representation of how I’m feeling/trying to feel. I’ve spent most of the day staring into space, trying not to freak out. Now I’m eating a pint of ice cream. Tomorrow will be better.

    Thank you for the comic.

    I think you’ve summed up the reaction of most people I know Sarah. Thanks!

    We are officially in the Age of the Clod. The unthinking, ill-educated bullythug rules. Goodness help us all!

    Today I feel in despair but I felt a kind of catharsis reading your comic. Thank you Sarah, it’s why you do what you do so well.

    That perfectly encapsulates how i felt the day after DT was elected and I cried and then asked my sons later that night if they understood why I had cried. They did. Then we talked about how when they are old enough they must always always vote….
