Welp, here is the finished cartoon-- finished as the Republican Convention & Weirdest Show On Earth is only getting weirder. For you Patrons who saw (and heard) the early script read, I hope you think it turned out well. I'm happy with how the cheesy political ad video flag worked in with the overall feel. (That's a new/rare thing for me, combining live action and cartoons.)
It’s hard to keep up with the parade of craziness coming out of the Republican convention in Cleveland. Leading up to the convention, Donald Trump implied President Obama is in league with cop-killers and terrorists, soon after, Rudy Giuliani ginned up the boogie-man factor by shouting, “you know who you are and we’re coming to get you!” (That doesn’t count various calls for Hillary Clinton’s imprisonment and execution by firing squad.) And it’s only Wednesday!
Let’s not forget poor Melania Trump’s deer-in-the-headlights plagiarism speech, a wrong that pales in comparison with her husband’s stated policies. But never mind the Trumps, the craziness doesn’t stop there. Take a minute to read about the Republican Party platform, you’ll see there is more than enough extremism to go around.
This would be such an entertaining sideshow if there wasn’t an actual chance (apparently a small one) that Donald Trump could be the next president of the United States. As I’ve said before, even though he’s a long shot, this is a little too close for comfort. Enjoy the cartoon, and pass it along to your friends & Trump-fans!
As always, thanks so much for your support,
