Yesterday, Kanye West went on what seemed like a day-long meltdown about his love for Donald Trump. Although it’s perfectly fine to believe what you want to believe, in this particular case, it seems to fly in the face of what Kanye and his entire music career has stood for. We can just add this to the list of things that Kanye does that make it increasingly harder to be a fan (of which, I am). It’s his right, I just wish it had more context to it other than what simply feels like celebrity gushing instead of honest policy concerns.

But today’s comic isn’t about people who support Trump, it’s about the people who suddenly jump on board with people and products by making them symbols to their “cause.” Extreme conservative pundits, Bill O’Reilly, the alt-right – these people don’t care about Kanye West. Trump doesn’t care about Kanye West. But now he’s a “symbol.” Because it all feeds into these fantasy war games of symbolizing faction with heraldry.

If Ted Nugent suddenly started promoting Kirsten Gillibrand for 2020, I’m not going to start buying copies of Cat Scratch Fever.
