"This Modern World" provides a number of scenes from Campaign 2016. The key message of today's 'toon comes in the next-to-last panel with Dontald T. (for "The") Chump blathering that if he loses (hope, hope) the 2016 election, it will be the result of "election fraud" that would enable "Crooked Hilary" to steal a "rigged" election (via voter fraud). Chump's fantasy is driven by the Stupid losses to POTUS 44 in 2008 (The Geezer) and 2012 (Big Love); the Stupids were not losers because of a lack of votes the real explanation for the 2008 and 2012 losses is African American voter fraud. This vision is grounded in racism. If this is (fair & balanced) political crackpottery, so be it.
