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.

Are we done with capsule coffee makers yet? Sure, they’re easy. But they are not so easy on the environment, and it’s debatable whether they actually make a better cup. Luckily, there’s never been a better time to switch back to the good old reliable drip method – especially when drip coffeemakers have quietly been […]
If there’s one thing that stayed consistent through the last decade or so of tech industry turmoil, it’s the love affair between techies and Linux.
