Ah c’mon, Clay, you’re a better investigative cartoonist (?) than that?
Gotta admit this old geezer doesn’t get the Beetlejuice reference as to Trump (strong familiarity with the red giant star Betelgeuse and the culture reference to Beetlejuice, but not the connection to Trump — help, please, from younger, more savvy media types?).
But the Diet Coke symbology? Got it.
Trump says he does not drink alcohol.
Trump says a lot of things. Most of them prove to be lies. He says he doesn’t drink. All we have on that is Trump’s history of lying on an unprecedented scale.
If Trump says he just drinks Diet Cokes? That means he is drinking Coke and rum.
Or give the gut the benefit of the doubt (as if there was any doubt).
He doesn’t do alcohol.
LSD, PCP, methamphetamine — none of those would require consumption of alcohol.
But of course, cocaine or Adderall would be a far better match in explaining the fake “president’s” constant sniffing and disconnect from reality or even being able to read off the TelePrompTer that he whined about Obama using (even though Obama used a TelePrompTer a fraction of how much Trump does, just as Obama golfed a tiny fraction of how much Trump golfs — you know, the liar who said he would be too busy to golf if elected — and some gullible suckers are so stupid and mindless they actually fell for that scam).
