Images Of A So-called President
   
What is more belittling (and hilarious) to the pretensions of an authoritarian than quoting their own stupid words back at them? How about using those actual quotes combined with art from that great American invention, comic books? See Trump's words put in the mouth of a supervillain, the Red Skull, at Pres. Supervillain:
To  fully cover the subject, someone else has used also actual Trump quotes in revised cover versions of actual classic comic books, from the Incredible Hulk to Little Lulu and lots more. Laugh at them at:
"The people united will never be divided."
    
Resistance and civil disobedience in 2017 requires intersectional solidarity and community organizing. An attack on some of us is an attack on all of us. We have to stand united and fight all forms of oppression during Trump's Administration.
