I wanted to take the time to thank you for Sunday's strip. In this day and age when we are forced to accept the abnormal as the new normal, it takes courage to make a stand and say what needs to be said, and you have undressed a counterfeit president masterfully. I applaud you, sir!
Nick Arena | Phoenix, AZ | June 12, 2018
Thank God I found this website, bringing sanity to life under Trump. We are grateful for GBT's satire in creating humor around the top stories of the day. We need some on gun control, pending isolationism, as well as expansion of the military/industrial complex." Keep up the fight!

Thank you for this past Sunday's strip with Norm/Norma. Yes yes yes. This is the person we want. I cut it out and shared it with many friends at lunch. Keep reminding us, as I think too many folks have lowered their expectations, and they shouldn't. Thanks again. This person will be our next president.
Bob Wanner | Yorktown Hts, NY | June 12, 2018
Sunday's strip may be best strip ever, worded to satisfy our polarized political environment, yet handily makes a point. I suggest a sequel, keyed on opposite sarcasm. Same panels, same word balloons, new words. Serious, subtle, even believable. Follow that up with a version with blank balloons -- Do It Yourself.
BRIGHTEN MY SPIRIT
Sherrill DuRocher | Wichita Falls, TX | June 12, 2018
I want to thank you for your Trump-related cartoons, I enjoy them so very much. It's hard living in Wichita Falls, Texas and being an intelligent, liberal older woman (I moved here to be close to my kids and grandbabies). Your cartoons remind me that there are like-minded, idealist people still, and they brighten my spirit. I loved your 6/10/18 idealistic cartoon; it gave me hope and positivity. Thanks so much!
A BETTER FUTURE
Peggy Little | Tallassee, AL | June 11, 2018
Doonesbury is the first thing I read in the Sunday paper. Yesterday's strip was one of the best that I have ever read. As usual, you were right on spot! Thanks. We needed the encouragement that we together can make a better future.
Jim Thorn | State College, PA | June 11, 2018
I see that Elizabeth Kuhn beat me to it, but I also intend to send Sunday's strip to the president. I think it would be great if we could flood the White House mailroom with copies of this commentary!
THE ONLY PROBLEM
David | Kingston, JAMAICA | June 11, 2018
Sunday's strip was great; the only problem with it is that, well, you can't elect a Canadian for POTUS.
Dave | Elmira, NY | June 11, 2018
Ah, Lacey. Sad that the only elected official ever to take full responsibility for their actions is a cartoon character.
Mary Nicolay | West Melbourne, FL | June 10, 2018
I just want to thank you for sharing your humor, intelligence, empathy and concern for all Americans. When It seems things cannot be changed, that we are living in total chaos, your perspective lightens the mood and gives us hope.
Edward Cherlin | Columbus, IN | June 10, 2018
I'm sorry, we voted for honest presidents? Many times? Would you remind me? JFK, affairs; LBJ, Vietnam; Nixon, Watergate; Ford, no we didn't vote for him; Carter, Afghanistan; Reagan & Bush, Iran-Contra; Clinton, numerous women and the dotcom bubble; W, Iraq WMD; Obama, going after the torturers; Hillary, Bill's wom...oh, sorry, Trump got in, didn't he. Okay: Trump, everything. Or as Mark Slackmeyer once said, "That's guilty! Guilty, guilty, guilty!!"
Rosemay A. Wall | West Hartford, CT | June 10, 2018
Your strip today moved me to tears. Thank you for the sanity you brought to so many of us appalled by the current White House occupant. I hope this imperiled country can make it to 2020.
Brendan Nichols | South of Jefferson, OR | June 10, 2018
On today's strip: Amen. Great sermon, brother. Brilliant imagery, both visual and ethical. The leaders we bear in our American Democratic Republic are a reflection of the state of our Union. We the People are responsible for them, and it, whether we have been or not. We all bleed the same color. We all laugh and cry over the same circumstances. We all love and despise the same basic things, regardless of what details may differ. Most importantly, we each are members of the same human family. Dumb can be a poor decision, but stupid is its careless repetition: Dumb is readily forgivable, stupid begs rejection. May God bless those who love us, and those who hate us: May God forgive us all !
Elizabeth Kuhn | Visalia, CA | June 10, 2018
Today's Doonesbury strip was perfect! I sent it on to the president.
Alan Appelbaum | Mount Kisco, NY | June 10, 2018
Thanks for Norm, for whom we will all vote. I hope there will be bumper stickers, buttons, and lawn signs. This could be a unifying candidacy.
R.M. | US of A | June 10, 2018
That someone does or does not "worship a loving god" is entirely irrelevant to their being a decent person. To imply, in today's strip, that it's required in a "normal" person or president is bigoted.
Dave | Elmira, NY | June 10, 2018
In today's strip, I'm sure there are a thousand characteristics you could have listed, but here's one I hope for: "I'm an adult, and I act like it."
VALUES AND BEHAVIORS
Linda Weinberg | Anmore, CANADA | June 10, 2018
Thank you for today. Current events in the US are so destructive and destabilizing that watching the evening news is painful. Your message is a good reminder that there are millions of US citizens who model the values and behaviors that we expect in our leaders.
Will Hutchings | Happy Valley - Goose Bay, CANADA | June 10, 2018
I don't think it's too early to crowdfund a "Norm 2020" campaign.
D.L.S., M.D. | Newtown Square, PA | June 08, 2018
Today's five-years-ago strip is my favorite in the entire canon.
