|Defining Flaw:||This webcomic cannot even tell the truth about Trump, but has to resort to extreme lies.|
It's an "Orange man bad" webcomic... if you can even call it a comic. This is basically a comic version of The Resistance™ against Trump, AKA SJW whining that the orange man is bad and you need to know that he's bad. It was only a matter of time before this was discovered by this wiki.
Did you read the stuff above? This thing was never good...
The "art" is... well, it's not there. This webcomic is made from press photos (sources never attributed) with only the slightest of Photoshop filters over, along with speech bubbles. That's it. As noted by one of the wiki forumites: This shit is LESS creative than Darth and Droids.
It's about as creative as the art. Well, ok, that's actually not true: It's somehow worse.
Though, to clarify: This is satire. It's just really bad satire. It's political satire as written by a five year old where they take a random picture of someone they don't like an add a speech bubble and write "I eat poo poo". That's really about it: This webcomic puts speech bubbles onto pictures of Trump, his cabinet and his family, making them say the exact kind of vile and ridiculous shit that Trump-haters wish that Trump and company would say because that is clearly the most hilarious shit ever, right?
Just imagine the most deranged Orange Man Bad™ activist, and then imagine what such a person wishes (or legitimately thinks) Trump says and does. That's the writing for this webcomic.
Basically, its terrible. It's not even funny - and at times it's very creepy, like the mini-arc called "Wet dreams may come" which opens with a Photoshopped naked trump who wants to fap to Fox and Friends. Of course, that's not bad enough, because next page we get a shooped Trump wanting to fondle and molest his daughter. And you think that's bad? Nah - two pages later the speech bubbles tells us Trump just fucked his daughter in front of live cameras for ratings (and his raging boner).
As noted previously, this webcomic is basically what anti-Trump lunatics dream that Trump would do - or think that he does in reality - it's hard to tell. Either way it's shit, it doesn't tell anything that resembles a good story, hell it barely even passes for political satire.
From rawdale's Comic Fury profile we learn that he's apparently a illustrator/graphic designer (who apparently can't draw) who lives in DC, who's worked a bit doing comic illustration, but apparently not enough that he can point to anything specific.
So... he's a dude who lives in DC who hates Trump? Gee, how original.
To make things worse, then he does operate other webcomics, like the one about Jesus running for president in 2016, which is another anti-Trump comic, but he draws that shit himself - as shown here to the right.
This is a dumpster-fire of unfunny bullshit. It's not funny, it doesn't try to be - and it displays the emotional maturity of an 11-year old who thinks scribbles with stick figures and making them say naughty words is the peak of comedy.
There is little to no attempt to make kind of coherent narrative, or tell any kind of original story. You can practically feel how rawdale will sit, frothing at the mouth, wearing a pink pussy hat and a rainbow-colored "Resist" T-shirt while doing the comic.
This is exactly the kind of webcomic this wiki was made for: It fails at communicating any kind of story whatsoever, it doesn't even try to feature good artwork and it's dripping with hatred as its only excuse for existing. This is a soap-box comic of the very worst kind.
Compare to the pro-Trump webcomic Day by Day (yes also reviewed here) where the Trump and politician caricatures are actually drawn, and the gag-a-day format doesn't try to make you claw your eyes out from Photoshopped Trump nudes, though still featuring nudity every now and then. Opposite political favorites aside, then this webcomic and Day by Day are basically on either end of the spectrum of good vs bad quality political satire cartoons.
