Newspaper drops ‘Non Sequitur’ cartoon over Trump insult

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.

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.

Pennsylvania paper drops syndicated cartoon over Trump insult

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.

Miller appeared to acknowledge the message in a tweet that said “some of my sharp-eyed readers have spotted a little Easter egg. … Can you find it?”

Brennan had posted on Twitter: ‘Your refusal to accept the unanimous assessment of U.S. intelligence on Iran, No. Korea, ISIS, Russia, & so much more shows the extent of your intellectual bankruptcy. All Americans, especially members of Congress, need to understand the danger you pose to our national security.’
