    Calvin is mature enough to realize how immature he is.

    Is this one that was “Trump-faced” during the campaign? It should’ve been, and couldn’t have come up at a better time.

    I know so many adults who agree with Calvin in the last frame. Some people grow up, others just get older.

    Growing up is optional, growing old is mandatory.

    Promises were made to be broken, and compromises… um… weren’t?

    We should never negotiate out of fear, but we should never fear to negotiate – JFK.

    Can we make Calvin an adviser to the president?

    Calvin is too young to realise that maturity is not an option.

    Bill Waterson stopped drawing Calvin and Hobbes in the mid 1990’s!!! I am 100% sure he never envisioned that Calvin’s dialog would one day mirror exactly what spews from an American president [small case intentional] on a daily basis!!!

    He surely wrote Calvin as a characterization of, and to make us laugh at, the petty childishness normal people outgrow!!!

    How could he or anyone ever imagine that someday there would be a human (?) in the White House with EXACTLY that same Calvin level mentality—childish, selfish, narcissistic, demanding and never compromising, never negotiating anything!!!!!! Just selfishly DEMANDING his own way period!!!! (Oh! Maybe he’s an alien sent here to destroy earth!!! An orange skinned alien!!! What make-up could Trump possibly use to get that yucky alien look???)

    That’s a lot more mature than Trump.

    If one side wants to do something stupid, and the other side says no. Compromise will result in doing something half-stupid.

    This strip originally appeared on January 5, 1989. (I checked in a Calvin and Hobbes archive). GoComics is re-printing these in chronological order and did not cherry pick this strip for its seeming appropriateness to current affairs.

    This is just a: 1) cosmic coincidence, and 2) a tribute to Bill Watterson’s ability to capture human traits. His body of work should be one for the ages.

    Hey, Schumer… ever read the comics? It would boost your intelligence.

    The wall might work provided there are no shovels, ladders, or boats. The wall is a very expensive illusion of safety from all those toddler criminals coming across the boarder. In fact, it would take a pretty stupid criminal to present themselves at the border where their record would automatically disqualify them, when they can just anchor a boat off shore and swim in, dig under any wall that’s built, or buy a ladder one foot taller than however high they can build the wall.

    Technology is the answer, not a luddite wall. Just trumpeting “border security” doesn’t make it right. Or is logic too hard for you trumpers?

    Everyone knows the best way is to just do it or get it. Easier to do that and ask for forgiveness than to ask and risk being refused.

    Who is it that refuses to back down? Pelosi and Schumer! They won’t even support what they themselves said a few years ago?? Have they never heard “e-mails and recordings are forever”? Just ask Hillary.

    I’ve noticed that one of the complications of the Trump derangement syndrome is that we go a couple of weeks without anybody saying much about President Trump. Then all of the sudden it explodes and people start spouting nonsense and incoherent opinions. I hope the CDC can find a treatment.

    I think you should need to get a license to prove you deserve to have an opinion. I can imagine millions of Americans who could not qualify.
