Trump is a Saturday morning cartoon super villain, but I am just not sure which one.  The best combination I can come up with is Lex Luther and 2nd Tier Captain Planet villain Looten Plunder.

I know Oliver is married to a US citizen, but that doesn't mean he can't be deported back to where ever everything is obviously better, right?

Rich gonna get richer.

Poor people gonna die and leave their families with crushing debt.

Deficit is gonna balloon bigly.

Basically, that's Trump's budget boiled down.

All that is missing is the declaration of bankruptcy after liquidating assets and converting them into another currency so he is not really harmed while everyone else is left holding the bag.  This is his MO

Is that what you want? People who have been legal permanent residents of the country for 8 years to be deported for exercising the Constitutional right to free speech?

You're a shiattier American than he is, and he isn't even a citizen.

Pardon me, I speak baby.

Trump said he prefers to be called Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All.

Well, since he's an actual racist, and the X-Men is a disguised anti-racism piece, wasn't there a President or two who wanted to kill all the mutants?  I think one of the X-Men movies even had this plot.

Saying anything remotely negative about the government is a right reserved only for people who were squirted out of a vagina within these borders, gotcha.

It's actually pretty easy to understand. Programs to help people are bad, because people who need help are pussies and likely some shade of brown into the bargain, so they need to go. The environment is for tree huggers and hippies. If you want to drink clean water or breathe clean air you can go buy those things. So environmental protection is out. The State Department uses diplomacy and not guns, and are therefore worthless pacifists. Cut them too.

With all that money, we can increase the military budget, because guns are awesome and real leaders solve problems by killing their enemies.

That is essentially the thought process of the President of the United States. And he'll have no problem passing it because it fits nicely within the twin pillars of Republicanism; "if you're poor, you deserve it," and "no matter what the government does, someone should be making money off it".

So if we hear that Trump is suddenly insisting on getting paid his yearly 400K in Rubles or Yuan we should probably make a note of it?

I thought mutants were more of general bigotry allegory than anything else. Heck, seeing as how they don't come "out" with their powers until puberty it could be more of a metaphor for homophobia.

One of the most amazing things trump does is to make himself the victim.  His remarks to Merkel, his whining about "wiretaps", have we ever has such a wimpy man as President?

And the Trumpies eat it up!  Rather than admitting that something really is wrong with Trump (and the evidence is concrete) they instead attack Oliver....Or a Broadway play....Or a restaurant in Hawaii.

There was a Captain Planet episode where they carefully explained global warming to Not-President Bush Sr. at the end of the episode, he even quipped, "whew! I'm bushed!"

I mean, that's not related to anything. I just binge watched every episode of Captain Planet a year ago, and I didn't think I'd have another opportunity to randomly bring up Captain Planet stuff in the politics tab. Point is, if liberal indoctrination of children ever existed on TV, it was Captain Planet.

Anyway, yeah, Trump is Hoggish Greedly.

I like Trump.
He breaks with tradition
We usually stop making fun of a president with a new one comes along.
But with Trump, we will be pointing and laughing long after he is gone.
Pointing, laughing, pointing, laughing, pissing on his grave.

The allegory changes, but the intentions behind it originally were racial. When race relations got a bit better, the allegory shifted to gays. Like in X2, "Have you tried...not being a mutant?"

Bonus fun fact: the original creators of Superman did so to address biases against immigration. Superman was an alien from outerspace but trying to fit in here.

There is a defined set of rules for deporting someone with lawful presence in the United States.

Ina 237 does not include, to my knowledge, anything about making fun of political figures. And no, this is not sedition or whatever other major items might be included.

Don't be a farking idiot.

I'm pretty sure the TV reaches from his birth nation so wasted gesture.  Maybe one of the WH staff will do the nation a favor and tape his reaction on seeing one of his many critics.

I do think we're definitely going to end up with a horrible budget when it's signed, but not this Draconian, exceedingly evil and dickish budget Trump is proposing.

Railing against entitlements makes for good political theatre, but guess what?  Republican voters tap into the safety net too.  They're just selfish, stupid motherfarkers that have deluded themselves into thinking that what THEY get from the government is well deserved, but everyone else is just a moocher, particularly when they're brown or black.

Trump is just doing what he said he was going to do, which is slash the fark out of the safety net and fark everyone equally.  He said as much on the campaign trail; it's just that his voters didn't think he was also talking about them.  He promised deep cuts to subsidies.  He promised to defund the fark out of federal programs and reduce the federal workforce and they just didn't think about what they meant.

Loving a country does NOT mean ignoring everything wrong with it. A true patriot wants to make it even better.
