What are you trying to say, exactly, Robert? This all is far too subtle for the likes of us.

Having Obama openly standing on one tank riding down the street with no irony on how that's exactly the way the alt-right nuts think he'd be like is astounding.

Here's the thing that a lot of people seem to forget: the Military, all branches, swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States, not the President of the United States.

In this instance, President Obama would be in breach of the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution and the Military would then ignore his clearly unlawful orders and arrest him.

So while this is a comic and the writer has an agenda, at least attempt to make it sensible.

I liked Barack Obama, I detest Trump, I think America is currently in deep shit, and I'd love to see a lot of positive changes made, some of which are clearly suggested here...

but this comic is such bizarre nonsense. I don't even have an idea of what it's actually about. Every issue seems to take a different tangent.

That's only the 22nd Amendment in our universe. This is Kirkman's Edgy-verse, where everything is pessimistic and cynical. The 22nd Amendment here probably limits the President to two child murders.

That's so restrictive. My god, man.

Every president ends breaking it. Because Edgy-verse.

Ah, so the solution to our current issues was to have Obama become exactly the tyrant the alt-right loons claimed he was going to be.

Kirkman, a dictatorship, however "benevolent" is still a dictatorship. And as despicable as racism and Nazis and such are, we have a little thing called "freedom of speech."

Plus, who judges what is "racism?" Because that can be one slippery slope to judge on.

This is, I like Kirkman usually but he is going full Millar here.

... I, um. Okay.

Although Obama rising a tank down the street as Glorious Leader like the alt-right wishes they could is kinda funny in a sad way.
