Time to show my “race“ card in time for the great Impeach! Nothing rankles more than to hear people speak of the President as the “Leader of the free world”. Utter nonsense and grievously insulting to those who understand and value democracy. The Leader-of-the-free-world thing always appears as an expression of American Exceptionalism wallowing on a self-satisfied bed of general arrogance/ignorance and entitlement. This sentiment rests on the lips of many in the media and general public ready to spittle onto the uninformed and gullible.
This design continues my ‘Axis of Weasels’ playing card series when the US invaded Iraq in 2003. At the time, I was forcibly removed from eBay for peddling my lino-cuts on their auction site. That caused a kerfuffle on the internet. But I did get my five minutes of internet fame! Yay! Seems like a narcissistic thing to say, haha! Especially when criticizing someone who actually suffers from this condition. Remember when his “bad hair day” vexed him more than the mass murder in Philadelphia? One of many sad examples.
It boggles that one of the most powerful countries in the world – next to China – can elect a bumpkin like Donald Trump. Or does it? A textbook example of the Dunning-Kruger effect.
