This comic has courted quite a bit of attention online.
A mischievous Lad, who was set to mind some Sheep, used, in jest, to cry “The Wolf! the Wolf!” When the people at work in the neighboring fields came running to the spot, he would laugh at them for their pains. One day the Wolf came in reality, and the Boy, this time, called “The Wolf! the Wolf!” in earnest; but the men, having been so often deceived, disregarded his cries, and the Sheep were left at the mercy of the Wolf.
A liar will not be believed, even when telling the truth.
This has been a trying several weeks, but those of us who followed the campaign know who the Shepherd Boy is in this story. In fact, during his campaign, his lies were so numerous that PolitiFact has chosen the “many campaign misstatements” of Donald Trump as the Lie of the Year because they could not settle on which of his lies was the biggest. “To the candidate who says he’s all about winning, PolitiFact designates the many campaign misstatements of Donald Trump as our 2015 Lie of the Year.”
For anyone to think that a pathological liar would stop lying they are sadly mistaken, not only does he continue with outright blatant and obvious lies, (who does he seriously think he is fooling?) he has a whole crew of “yes” men and women who cover his ass when he lies. They have no integrity or ethics or pride in themselves. His lies insult our intelligence, his lies insult our allies, his lies embarrass our country, his lies endanger our lives.
Our press must be vigilant about fact checking him, as Americans we must be vigilant about learning the truth when he suppresses the press and releases his own propaganda. He is not only acting like a petulant or mischievous Lad and laughing all the way, demanding attention and insisting that others obey his dictatorial demands. He is being foolish and naive to think we are stupid. We are not!
But sir, you are causing a problem for yourself, if indeed a crisis really occurs. You have told at least one lie a day since you have started your campaign and since you have taken office. No one will ever take you seriously again, no one with intelligence will ever believe a word you say. No one with any sense will ever consider you a sane and intelligent being.
No one will believe you. You have gravely endangered your flock, the American people. Those that die because of your lies and arrogance will be forever on your conscience.
Unless you are in the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s and eventually lose all your mental faculties, then I suppose your conscience won’t matter. (For I do believe you are suffering from a mental illness that needs desperate attention)
Moral of this story: As Americans, we must continue to be vigilant in seeking the truth. We must be vigilant in speaking the truth and facts. We must not let the wool be pulled over our eyes by this LIAR!
“Women are the future”
We Can Never Be Complacent!
He was inspired by the march yesterday and I admire the results of his inspiration. Thank you for your art, Matthew.
Artist: Matthew Waite, a comic book artist, was so inspired by the marches yesterday he made this. “Women are the future”. Immigrants are the future. LGBTQIA are the future. Equality and human rights are the future. We can’t let the momentum wane and we can NEVER be complacent again.
