A purported comic bio of Trump's campaign that Salon thinks tells an accurate picture of his male voters

Donald Trump's been elected as America's 45th president. That's the great news. But now, leftists like the phonies on Salon are taking out their anguish, here by focusing on a graphic novel called Donald Trump: The Road to the White House, coming from the former Bluewater (they seem to have changed their name to Stormfront Media, if you can believe that), which looks like it's got a stereotypical view of what white male voters for Trump are like:
Other factors that influence the white male protagonist’s decision to back Trump: Black Lives Matter protesters block his commute home while he’s trying to listen to conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh. His son is gay and emo. At work, he has to answer his new bosses — a black woman he can’t stop leering at and a younger guy sporting earrings.

His wife nags him and won’t have sex with him — forcing him to stare longingly at photos of Ivanka Trump. His neighbor looks suspiciously like “the Dude” from “The Big Lebowski” and votes for Democratic candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. A black paperboy has an inaccurate throwing arm.
If this is really what goes on in the GN, it sure sounds pretty stupid. They make it sound like right-wing husbands are stuck in stale marriages, and I'm sure not every one of them are.
The story often relies too heavily on aggressive racial and religious stereotyping. And attempts to resolve the main protagonist’s prejudices — a scene when he and his Muslim and black co-workers drink at a local sports bar and bond over Chiefs fandom and his hinted extramarital romance with a Black Lives Matter activist — aren’t sufficient.
Seriously, this GN depicts Muslims going to drink at an alcoholic bar? I thought that was supposed to be against the beliefs in Islam! Honestly, what kind of story is this supposed to be anyway? It doesn't sound any more appealing than it's accurate.

If any of what they tell about the GN is accurate, then it's all just a sleazy attempt to paint right-wingers as lunatics, and Salon's way of getting revenge for voting in the candidate with better responsibility than Clinton's ever had.
