Skip to comments.Pennsylvania paper drops syndicated cartoon over Trump insult
Posted on 02/11/2019 7:38:04 AM PST by Red Badger
At least one newspaper says it has dropped the syndicated cartoon "Non Sequitur" after a vulgar message to President Donald Trump appeared in it.
The Butler Eagle in Pennsylvania reported Sunday that the "shot at President Donald Trump" will cost cartoonist Wiley Miller "his place in the Eagle's Sunday comics."
A scribbled message in one panel of that day's cartoon appears to begin with "We fondly say go ..." followed by the message to Trump.
Ron Vodenichar, Eagle publisher and general manager, said in the paper that the paper was alerted about the message by a reader and included a syndicated comic strip.
"Neither the Butler Eagle nor any other newspaper that includes this strip had an opportunity to remove it even if they had discovered it before distribution. We apologize that such a disgusting trick was perpetuated on the reading public. The Butler Eagle will discontinue that comic immediately," he said.
The papers article was titled, Loose Lips Sink Strips.
It's not clear whether other publications have dropped the strip, distributed by Andrews McMeel Syndication. The company's website says "Non Sequitur" appears in more than 700 newspapers.

If all newspapers followed suit.............................but it’ll never happen...................
Butler, unlike Chicago, is definitely MAGA Country, so I fully understand and applaud the paper’s decision.
probably a host of contract violations involved too... sic the lawyers on him
Herblock would be ashamed ...
It’s a shame.
Non-Sequitur was one of my favs.
Now I know WILEY is a TDS Dem Lib, so I won’t be reading his crap any more..................
Wileys Nonsequitor is not a childs comic. It has always been a cutting edge political bit
Wow somebody has waaay too much time on their hands to spot that
Perpetuating them might be a stretch though.
They frequently have lefty propaganda in that strip. They are usually more low key with it. But if you are just now figuring out that it is to the left of Doonesbury....
over 700 newspapers.
Second panel, lower right
If the ‘Trump Curse’ is for real, then that 700+ will drop like a stone......................................
Leftists are like nasty little children, spewing their hatred anywhere and everywhere they can, and unable to restrain themselves. Watch a movie made by a leftist? Read a review? Read ANYTHING? It’s only a matter of time before their Trump hatred breaks free and they start vomiting it up.
They really are mentally ill and nothing they produce should be tolerated in civilized society.
what will Newark Star Ledger say?
That’s unreadable. Terrible, or no talent as a cartoonist, actually.
And here I thought it was just some kind of Latin in bad handwriting....
The “Bear Resistance” is alive and well with Wiley Miller.
The act is biologically impossible. Even for a hermaphrodite.
Unless things get bent into a “U”.
