R Crump's "Point the Finger" series of comics about his disgust with America appeared in the first run of Hup! in 1989.
Crumb took aim at many targets, among them real estate mogul Donald Trump, who, in issue 3, was confronted by a raging Crumb who called him "one of the most evil men alive" and a "slime-ball," before Trump smarmed his way to victory over Crumb, winning the affection beautiful women and sending the police with guns drawn to confront Crumb for "wasting his time." Then, in a Crumbian reversal, he imagines a surprise ending where he is triumphant.
It's Crumb all over: weird, self-deprecating, sexist, and before its time. Long before "Make America Great Again," Crumb had Trump's number.

If your office works at all, it uses Microsoft Office. Those icons for Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook are as familiar around some workplaces as the coffee machine. So familiar, in fact, that they get taken for granted – and rarely used to their full potential. Whether you need a crash course in the essential tools […]
