Donald Trump's frequent visits to Phoenix during his Presidential campaign may be the first times he and Sheriff Joe Arpaio have appeared together on stage publicly, but readers of my local superhero satire Amazing Arizona Comics know that the two have met before. They actually share a birthday -- June 14, Flag Day -- so, by their birthright and celebrity, they also share a title as Agents of F.L.A.G.!
That's right: When American iconography is threatened, the spirit of Betsy Ross summons those influential celebrities born on Flag Day to protect our nation's strongest symbols . . . as The Agents of F.L.A.G.! This pin-up appeared in Amazing Arizona Comics #12. . . and foreshadows a story to come.
Donald Trump's harsh views of immigration are no stranger to Amazing Arizona Comics readers, either, as first revealed in this strip from back in November 2012, when Trump, Arpaio, and others were still clamoring for copies of President Obama's birth certificate. Here is the strip, reprinted in its entirety.
That's right, folks: Donald Trump is actually hosting a cosmic parasite seeking to expose President Obama as overlord from outer space with a no tolerance policy on illegal "aliens." And, as the strip implies, there's more to come . . .
. . . and here it is! Amazing Arizona Comics #24 exposes the truth behind the Agents of F.LA.G., and the Trump/Arpaio dynamic. Coming soon!
