Doonesbury Prediction

Gary Trudeau’s comic strip Doonesburys 12/18/16 edition seemed to predict that exchange.

The Twitter account StuffJournalistsLike first noticed it and shared it on the same day as Trump’s press conference.

Garry Trudeau‘s comic strip Doonesbury has been around since the 60s and is known for its profound insight into political culture.
