10-year-old Barron Trump says, “Daddy doesn’t know I took this picture. He’ll kill me for this!”

I doubt it, but you can understand why a little 10-year-old would fear THAT daddy.

See, normally Donald Trump’s face resembles an angry slab of red meat topped with a garnish of spaghetti squash. It’s true!

But is that fair? Just remember— he must spend every moment of his waking life bolstering the facade of a hard-charging tycoon with the fearless heart of a honey badger, and so, naturally, he looks a little, well, catawampus. 

Remember too, hiding within every bully is a fragile, wounded child who still sucks his thumb when nobody’s looking.

Presidential Election 2016 in the Land of Oz

It’s a hopeful tale: Tim Kaine, the Cowardly lion, despite his previous support for fracking & Wall Street, will find the courage to oppose those; Bill, despite his Nafta heartlessness, will find a heart and convince Hillary to oppose the TPP; Kissenger, still arm-in-arm with the Clintons, and the scariest scarecrow ever, will find his brain at last, and realize he’s a war criminal. And Hillary will find her way home, as President of the United States. At least we can pretend, until it happens for real.
