I just read an hour or so ago that actor Gene Wilder passed away at the age of 83. Some of you may remember Wilder from his roles as Dr. Frankenstein in Young Frankenstein, Jim in Blazing Saddles, Avrim in a personal favorite of mine called The Frisco Kid (in which he starred with a young Harrison Ford), and several films with Richard Pryor.
If none of the above bring him to mind, shame on you.

For this week's animations, I captured the Superfriends from Hanna-Barbera!
|No, it was not just a figure of speech.|
First off, Trump, as has been noted previously, is attempting a little bit of outreach with the African-American community. He has done this by speaking to groups of white people who are somewhere near places where African-Americans may or may not live. This has not turned out to be the winning strategy that he and his staff thought it might be.
Trumpbots: shut UP about how great blacks will have it with your help. You had 8 YEARS to help a BLACK PRESIDENT help blacks & did nothing!— Bill Harnsberger (@BillinPortland) August 25, 2016

Dems: Tragic, and it's guns
GOP: Tragic, but it's culture
Trump: This is what I've been tellin' those blacks. I'm awesome.
As a result, he switched tactics and decided that the smart move here would be to convince the African-American communities that he's not the racist bigot! It was Hillary the whole time!

Now his core supporters are confused about who to vote for.
This week, he's coming to Detroit to speak to actual African-Americans! I sincerely hope this is televised...
|I expect this to be Trump's reaction the first time|
one of those African-Americans disagrees with him.
Notice how the Alt-Right hates political correctness yet use a PC term like Alt-Right instead of just calling themselves White Supremacists?— D (@Delo_Taylor) August 23, 2016
Naturally, he and his spokeschimps blew a fucking gasket and tried to talk about her and the e-mail thing, which is no longer a thing, and her health, which is also not a thing. If those didn't work, BEGHAZI!

Well, as he's already with the whole $6 million to veterans thing, it's not looking...what's the word? Truthful?

You can probably guess which tweet was helmed by Kellyanne Conway and which one was written by Donald Trump. pic.twitter.com/y4UtNgqnJc— Frank Luntz (@FrankLuntz) August 27, 2016
Oooh...Not cool, dude. Not cool at all.
If he keeps this sort of thing up, it could end badly for him. Very badly.
This whole thing will end with @realDonaldTrump denouncing his own supporters as failures. Save this tweet.— Thanks4 Sharing Jerk (@Thx4SharingJerk) August 26, 2016
This is not that much of a stretch to believe.
|Dammit, Aquaman! Cut it out!|
|I have the best doctors! Really fantastic!|
Trump's doctor looks like the guy who prescribes you weed without even hearing your fake excuse. pic.twitter.com/PZB8gzSdBE— Mike Drucker (@MikeDrucker) August 26, 2016
Either way, questions arose over some of the terminology used in the letter, including the part about Trump's medical exam showing "only positive results". In Doctorland, saying test were positive usually means bad things. But not in Dr. Bornsteinland!
|And there are no lifeguards, either!|
In no particular order...

Nope. That's definitely gravy.

And there you have it! Quite a week! Now get out there and make this one an awesome one, will ya? To help it along, here's the original 1973 classic Superfriends intro!
Finally, some food for thought from the Dynamic Duo themselves:
All the best,
