    Default F-bomb against President Trump hidden in Sunday comics

    And a familiar pattern emerges: the author lies and claim it was a mistake.

    The author of “Non Sequitur,” Wiley Miller, issued a statement on Monday that blamed the offensive words on an oversight: “When I opened the paper Sunday morning and read my cartoon, I didn’t think anything of it, as I didn’t notice the scribbling that has now caught fire. It wasn’t until later when sharp-eyed readers pointed it out that I remembered doing it, as the cartoon was done about eight weeks ago. I now remember that I was particularly aggravated that day about something the president had done or said, and so I lashed out in a rather sophomoric manner as instant therapy. It was NOT intended for public consumption, and I meant to white it out before submitting it, but forgot to.”

    The explanation doesn’t match Miller’s post on Twitter on Sunday, which encouraged readers to look for a hidden message in his Sunday strip: “Some of my sharp-eyed readers have spotted a little Easter egg from Leonardo Bear-Vinci. Can you find it?” The post included an image of the offending panel.

    I found it! One of my favorite cartoons and cartoonists. If he hadn't said anything, I doubt if anyone would have found it.

    It won't cost him his career. First Amendment and all that jazz. Anyone who's enjoyed Non Sequitur over the years knows that he has only disdain for the stupid. I.e., Republicans.

    Most of his stuff is funny, but here he violated the terms of his publishing agreement. Then, like any good little liberal, he couldn't man-up to what he did.

    Not that's humorous.

    'If Republican then stupid'. How predictably boring.

    You've seen his publishing agreement? You his lawyer or something?

    You're just butthurt that yet another one stepped up to join the hundreds of thousands who mock your glorious Mango Mussolini daily.

    Why else would the Journal replace the strip?

    The comic strip panel “Non Sequitur” has been dropped from the Winston-Salem Journal’s comics lineup, effective today.

    The decision was a result of Sunday’s strip, which included the message, “Go f_ _ _ yourself Trump.” The type is hard to read, and easy to miss in a strip that features bears resembling Leonardo da Vinci and encourages readers to color on the page in “The Bearaissance.” The words are in the second panel in the strip, under a flying machine.

    The Journal was unaware of the hidden message until news accounts began to spread on Monday. Sunday comics are printed several days in advance.

    Regardless of one’s political views, such offensive language against President Trump — or any president — should never appear to be associated with a news organization that strives to promote civil discourse and a meaningful exchange of ideas and opinions.

    The Journal has replaced “Non Sequitur” with a strip called “Off the Mark.”
