Beautiful Democracy


From Thairath, November 11, 2016
Title: Congratulations.
On the tablet: Donald Trump, the 45th president of United State of America
Smoke on left: Terrorism war
Smoke on right: Economic war
Mouse: The beautiful democracy
Mouse man: Comes from election by the people

[This is a sarcastic comment on the election of contentious Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States. The cartoonist also refers to the Red Shirt mantra of democracy “coming from the people” via elections. This is perhaps a rueful acknowledgement of the now fractious state of democracy in both the U.S. and Thailand. The smoke in the background draws a comparison to the protests in Thailand that resulted in burning over dissatisfaction with the state of democracy.]
