A newspaper has dropped a syndicated cartoon after finding an insult aimed at President Donald Trump tucked in a corner of the strip.

On Sunday, Pennsylvania’s Butler Eagle included the comic strip “Non Sequitur” drawn by Wiley Miller as it always does. However, this particular cartoon, featuring a “Bearaissance” character named Leonardo Bear Vinci, had a message scribbled in the lower-right-hand corner reading, “We fondly say go fuck yourself to Trump.”

1. I noticed that in the GoComics archives, the text and arrow have been whited out.

See https://www.gocomics.com/nonsequitur/2019/02/10

I still have a hard time making out the "...ly say" and "...f to" parts of the purported message, but the rest is pretty clear.

Everyone could see it but me. It’s as plain as day...

4. I can't read any of the handwriting around the drawing

itself. Sadly, I don't have time to stare at it for long stretches to figure it out. The message to trump is more obvious.
