In August I drew this graphic essay for The Washington Post, which ran both online and in print.
And now, the Trump Presidency. How did we get here?
And during the next four years will he drag this country lower and lower into the bowls of hell? Time and Trump will tell…. As to how we got here, a large number of middle age and elderly white men and women, aching for the comfort of the 40s and 50s, a time that has come and gone, votes in large numbers. The rest of us never thought it could happen. Nobody was paying attention. So like the chicken farmer who ignores the coup for a brief time while the fox snuck in.
Thank you for the graphic essay as it will serve as a current and future history lesson.
