One of the things I’m constantly reminding myself is that even as Trump’s approval rating reaches record lows and his unfavorable rating grows, there will always be a core constituency that supports him no matter what.

But it’s not just his base, the people who worked the hardest to carry him into the White House. There’s also the tribalists, the people who need to stand by their guy through thick and thin because he, on a certain level, represents them. It’s just that for them they need to perform some contortions; implicitly siding with racists won’t be good PR, but if they can dress up some false equivalency and pretend both sides are to blame…

No, I don’t believe Lisa or Bob are bothered by the rise and normalization of the alt-right. Not when they’re response to Charlottesville is ‘OMG, can you believe what those liberals are doing?’

Be ready for the inevitable ‘Why aren’t the Democrats disavowing Antifa?’ cartoons.

And on the topic of false equivalency, I don’t think Anderson has the same motivations as Benson and Gorrell above, but this is still a shitty cartoon:
