A New Yorker cartoon by someone called "Will McPhail", if that is his real name. depicts a passenger in an airplane standing up to announce that the current pilots are too smug and that passengers should instead take over.
It is a not very subtle hit at Trump’s victory, a victory viewed by the cartoonist and 99.99% of New Yorker readers as a victory of all those people who live on the other side of the Hudson, the people who are too stupid to run the country and live in Nowheresville.
Because running the country is just like flying a plane, apparently. And the experts who have run it so far are the only ones who can do it competently...
...The reaction from liberals has been as expected – that the cartoon is a metaphor for Trump’s victory by the Stupid Class.
As William A. Jacobson observes, this kind of inanity is precisely the lack of self-awareness that delivered America President Trump.
Fortunately, summer intern Biff Spackle was kind enough to repair the cartoon for New Yorker, making it say what they really meant.
I'm actually glad to see this kind of stupidity from the New Yorker. It demonstrates they still don't get it.
