The whole idea that this cartoon was evenlinked to the President is complete hogwash.
If anyone should be offended it's the woman who got her hands and face ripped off by a rampaging ape, a few days before the cartoon was put in. Or the owner of the ape that got shot to death that she felt was like a member of the family. What if the cartoon depicted the kid that shot his pregnant stepmother in the head and killed her behind bars with the same caption.
"Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear."
