%%* LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy

to:

%%* LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy* LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy: There are a number of humans, like Carmen, but also many talking animals, including Winslow the coyote and a Hillary Clinton caricature who is a chicken.



%%* VitriolicBestBuds

to:

%%* VitriolicBestBuds* VitriolicBestBuds: Carmen and Winslow often argue about politics, but they always prove themselves to befriends in the end.

Added DiffLines:

* FoxNewsLiberal: Winslow. His character oscillates between vaguely espousing "wacky" liberal ideas for Carmen to take down, and joining Carmen in mocking those dumb and so goddamned crazy lefties.


* EveryoneHasStandards: Stantis ''does not'' like Donald Trump, and sees him as an embarrassment to conservatism.

to:

* EveryoneHasStandards: Despite the strip's blatant conservative bias, Stantis ''does not'' like refuses to say anything good about Donald Trump, and sees seeing him as an embarrassment to real conservatism.


** Quite possibly the result of [[MisaimedFandom misplaced audience sympathy]]. Carmen was deeply UnintentionallyUnsympathetic, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking exhibiting transphobic behavior and whining about her rescuers (horror of horrors) asking her to play cooperative boards games]]. By contrast, no matter how cookie the coyotes' leftist beliefs were supposed to be, [[StrawmanHasAPoint they were in face sheltering an American child from an unjust attempt at arrest and deportation]].

Added DiffLines:

* OrwellianRetcon: After a month worth of strips in which Carmen escapes ICE agents attempting to deport her and hides with Winslow's family - a source of much comedy about [[StrawmanPolitical craaaaaaaaaaaazy leftist attitudes]] - the arc is abruptly aborted, and Carmen declares that she was obviously never targeted by ICE agents. Rather, she stepped out to buy ice cream, and Winslow misunderstood her.

%%* ScrewySquirrel: Winslow sometimes


* Aluminum Christmas Trees: Cooperative board games are apparently an absurd result of liberal attitudes taken to extremes in the Winslow household, rather than an extremely popular and commercially successful genre.

Added DiffLines:

* ContemplateOurNavels: An extremely common type of strip, particularly during the Trump presidency, consisted of Winslow and Carmen running across the desert, repeating some variation of the mantra "Things are pretty bad - but they could be worse - could they really? - I don't know".


** Winslow's MultipleChoicePast includes references to SpiderMan and ''Film/TheGodfather''.

* OnlySaneMan: Carmen often plays this role. A common way for the strip to present its political message is to have a caricature of liberal attitudes or policies portrayed as something silly or crazy, then have her respond in this way. She has also been known to do this however to Republicaans when the author felt they were going too far.
