Wait a minute, I thought that the new set of rainbow-colored drones were supposed to represent the "bad" side of the political left (Queer-friendly, trans-accepting, sex-positive: everything Tats hates). Since when is Trump part of that?
The joke was probably too easy to ignore and it makes for very good padding to get the left more back on his side. He has been going at the left pretty hard lately.
OR. He could go for the ultimate insult to a leftist and claim that Trump and the right along with the left is all one in the same.
I would like that comparison to be made if only to see what Tat would do once his Patreon dips below $1k.
Tats is the first person to call Trump orange. Nobody has ever noticed that about him before. What a creative person!
Believe it or not, Trump hasn't been particularly hostile to any of those. He's certainly sex-positive, and he's definitely not a SWERF! His positions on marriage equality over the past decades have been all over the map, for and against ... as have the positions of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. All three are currently in favor of it.

Thank you for the link, I wasn't aware of that.
So, I guess that Gibson is right about the joke being the ultimate insult to the leftists.
These days it's hard to tell what the frak Tats' intentions are.
When Tats went Woke in 2011, his grand crusade was for women's rights. That evolved into a crusade against pornography, and that into a SWERF crusade against prostitution and sex trafficking (which Tats seems to define as essential to prostitution) ... and that evolved into "all men are horrible disgusting Johnbies" ... and that evolved into a full metal TERF crusade and incoherent rants about gender.
My point is that over the past decade Tats' targets have been getting narrower and his hatred more extreme. Now he's turned his efforts to ridiculing trans people ... and this is something that isn't a big issue to 95 percent of the population. I'd guess (without statistics to back me up) that the vast majority of Americans don't spend a lot of time thinking about trans issues. I'd guess that even people who don't buy the premises of the trans community are still mostly sympathetic toward them — they don't hate trans people, they view trans people as mentally unbalanced and they doubt that hormone replacement and surgery are the best methods for dealing with that.
So why has Tats focused on a tiny segment of the population or his scorn? Well, female radical feminists seem to view trans people as a threat to their worldview.
Tats isn't a female radical feminist. But I suspect he's being influenced by one.
I have the same impression. I was going to answer that we're not 100% sure that he actually hates trans people, but when I think about it, there has been a real feeling of rage about this particular topic in some of his strips this year.

Just read his posts on his own forum. He isn't exactly subtle about it.
Regarding Trump... his administration has worked relentlessly against trans rights. They have been more directly antagonistic than any prior administration. Admittedly, a big part of that is the fact that trans rights have only come into the debate at all in more recent years, but the fact remains.
They fight to enforce the “bathroom laws,” to remove protections against being fired for being trans, against guaranteed medical coverage, against equality of trans military personnel... Trump is NOT LGBT neutral. Particularly when it comes to T.
Tatsuya’s association of Trump with LGBT rights (which he hates for not being feminist enough?) is as insane and disjointed as anything else in his mess of a worldview.
Trump is NOT LGBT neutral. Particularly when it comes to T.
I think it comes down to Trump not giving a shit one way or the other. He's acting like a typical politician in that regard — "I need to find out which way the crowd is headed, so I can run out in front and lead them!" In [current year] the public is okay with "LGB," so Trump (and Obama, and the Clintons) are okay with "LGB." The public still has reservations about "T," so ...
The fact that the most vocal of the radfems are bitterly opposed to "T" muddies up the water and prevents a consensus even among the "Woke." Activists who want to extend the presumption of normality to "trans-abled" and "trans-racial" people muddy the waters even further.

Now even drones can get senile.
Also it looks like his hair is rotating over time. First it was pointing forward, than it pointed to the right.

We get it Tats, he's orange. You're only the thousandth person to note that. Either move on, or find something new to make fun of.
Cause lemme tell ya Tats, with how much of a shut in you are? There's no way you look that much better.
Heck, making fun of Trump has been an art for three decades.
I'm tellin' ya. He's going for those easy left dollars. BUT. I'm thinking they know what he's trying to do.
Bush extended out Greenday's musical career for another 10 years. Alec Baldwin got another shot at the limelight because of Trump. Talk show hosts all suddenly had the same material. I understand that when there is a lolcow it is tempting to over milk it when there's money at stake.
Tatsuya is trying his damndest to get a squeeze.
What can he do? Nothing is working. Well, when he started asking for money he essentially became a business. Before, it was a labor of love. Now, he has a counter that shows us literally how badly people want his product and the want is dipping.
That's OKAY. Most businesses fail after an average of five years. He'll probably retain some of those Patron dollars, but he pissed off too many customers. It's going to fail. It'll just keep dipping. People won't keep donating forever. So what does that mean if he can't do it for money? It will mean that he will have to consider it a labor of love again and that is all it will ever be. Or just abandon it completely.
I think I said it before and I will say it again: the people who hate capitalism are the ones who suck at it.
Tats, if you don't want to draw any more, just stop.
This is arguing at the level of a small child. I don't like Trump! He is ugly and orange! He is a stinky pumpkin head!
I'm convinced that provoking this type of reaction (whether intentional or not) from his detractors is a big help for Trump's popularity.
Who would want to agree with assholes who are voicing their discontent like this?
Hex, I understand the need to say "let's be moderate in all things here," but I am a trans person who lives in the trans community. Trump has been singularly devastating to us in our everyday lives. He is not just a typical politician there. Under no other presidency have we experienced such immediate and relentless and direct political persecution. Please do not minimize this or tell me that it is not the case.
The fact that Tatsuya presents Trump as our leader is sickening.
This has the potential for being an interesting conversation, but I fear that we would quickly wander off-topic and incur the wrath of the mods. Let me just say that I mostly agree with you, but that you may be too optimistic about other politicians.
I hate to seem as though I'm defending Tats, but I don't think that was his intent here. I'm pretty sure he saw the opportunity for a cheap "Orange Man stupid" joke and took it, whether or not it made any sense in the context of either Sinfest or the real world.

So now even sewing string can incapacitate these eye drones. Tats, I know you're trying to shill your designated heroes as being these ever-prepared boss women, but when the only enemy you have them face is so pathetic that villains like the Trapster, Stilt Man, Kite Man and Condiment King would shake their heads in pity, they don't look all that amazing. If anything, it makes them look like total wimps, because if they ever faced an actual threat, they'd cave faster than a house of cards in a hurricane.

Weren't the drones upgraded a while ago so that magic and such couldn't affect them? That's why those two angels and Cupid couldn't fight them anymore.
Ohh, wow. The drones beaten with so little effort. Clearly this is proof that our Sheroes are absolutely unbeat...fuck it. I can't even sarcasm this.
Tats, in all the years you've been using these worthless ass drones, they've only managed one, ONE real win when up against the XXX horde, and even then it didn't matter because three managed to escape. They aren't threatening, they couldn't intimidate anything, they're the jobbers of jobbers. Three and a Half man band could kick their asses. Jessie and James laugh in their faces. The Foot Clan are embarrassed to be associated with them as robot henchmen. The Devil could replace them with the fucking Care Bears and see a marked improvement if only because they could brainwash you with that stare. If you put a dozen of them in a cage match with a single Porg, I'd put money on the goddamned Porg. At least it has a battle cry!
In other words, STOP USING THE DRONES TO SHILL YOUR STUPID PETS! If anything, it's starting to feel like the Sisterhood are bullying the poor things! They never stand any chance when they fight! Either let the drones get in a good hit on ANY Sisterhood affiliates, or drop them for something that can!
Hanging bird trapping nets from lampposts? What kind of buereacratic bastard would authorise that in a public steet?
Pretty strip, but I dunno, it just fails on a deeper level than Tat's usual fails
Why bother with those things anymore? Children even can take them down.
In other words, STOP USING THE DRONES TO SHILL YOUR STUPID PETS!
Since I have a theory for everything else, here's one for this situation:
This is Kabuki theater. The drones are designed to fail and to be seen failing. This is because The Sisterhood is secretly a tool of Satan, but if they didn't visibly fight Satan as his opponents, the public would catch on to their true allegiance.
This also explains why the various "Mission: Impossible" operations never seem to have any lasting effect — they're Kabuki theater too.
The only major damage to Satan's works that we've seen has been from (1) the Archangel Wossname who cut off Satan's wings, and (2) the Dragon, who destroyed one of Satan's factories out of annoyance.
Come to think of it, that might be why we haven't seen Medic for a long time — she patched up the Dragon, and thereby acted against Satan's interest. She was purged as a traitor and has become an unperson. The Sisterhood has even erased her from their photographs.

Hmmm, sounds much more interesting a theory than mine!
My theory is he just pulls his sisterhood storylines straight out of his ass and convinces himself he's a genius by battering his head into a stone wall for five hours a day

Ah, but the difference is that I believe your theory is correct. I don't believe mine is, unless Tats has been playing a VERY deep game for most of a decade.
It would serve us right if on October 3, 2021, Tats used Sinfest to announce ...
HA-HA! I fished you in, suckers!
