Donald Trump’s face is being added to ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ cartoons and it’s comic genius

What do a ranting cartoon 6-year-old and Donald Trump have in common?

According to the creative redditors over at /r/DonaldandHobbes, plenty! The premise is simple: they find original Calvin and Hobbes strips in which Calvin goes off on one of his famous power-hungry tangents, and superimpose Trump’s head. The cut and paste jobs might not be seamless, but the dialogue is a disturbingly good fit — the childish imaginings of Calvin as said by Trump could easily be mistaken for the real thing.

We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites, so scroll down and have a laugh. Just keep in mind this bit of advice from the subreddit moderators: “Have fun and try not to think worse of Calvin. He’s only six. Trump’s going on 70 and still hasn’t grown up.”

    Britain needs David walliams and Matt Lucas to do a new “little Britain” based on Brexit. It is screaming out for it.

    Donald J Trump refers to himself using the third person, just as we can see that The Deity does in The Bible.

    Trump has NPD (narcissistic personality disorder), classed as mental illness by the American Psychiatric Association. I never cared much for US politics but at least Hilary Clinton is a normal politician 😀

      And a relatively normal, clued up person. Not a complete fucking lunatic like that chump. Amazes me the US political system, old democracy in the world, can give him a 50/50 chance of being president.

    Who wrote this article ? Did you really not even mention Bill Watterson’s name? How about what he thinks of someone defacing his work? Jesus Christ I hate the goddamn internet.
