Calexit #1 Makes The Front Page Of The Drudge Report

When was the last time a comic book made the front page of The Drudge Report? It's been a while. But a new comic book about a Californian state that decides to secede from the Unites States Of America after it elects a totalitarian dictator may seem a familiar state of affairs to some. Calexit #1 by Matt Pizzolo and Amancay Nahuelpan from Black Mask Comics is described as:

"What if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States? And what if that President lost California, the sixth largest economy on Earth, by nearly 2-to-1…a margin of almost 3 1/2 million votes? What if the day after that President took power, the largest mass demonstration in history occurred, and the state with the largest turnout was California. And then, the following week, two of the largest international airports in the world, California's LAX and SFO, were blockaded by protesters? What if California refused to be ruled? From the creators of YOUNG TERRORISTS, Matteo Pizzolo (GODKILLER) and Amancay Nahuelpan (CLANDESTINO), comes this tale of resisting oppression, punching Nazis, protecting each other, kicking ass, and demanding liberty for all."

Drudge frames it as a Californian revolt against Trump:

While fellow travellers, and the kind of site Drudge more commonly links to, Breitbart takes a relatively balanced, non-partisan approach to the issue, lining it up for the commentators as a "full-scale revolution against Trump":

Go for it…. we will welcome the US Military into East California and Jefferson… then the a$$ess in Berkeley are gonna feel the love from the Army and the Air Force…. there some some really big bases up North… and while BLM like to dress smartly, I doubt those posseurs will do very well against well armed troops.
Take the Democrats, Gov and Lt. Gov into jail, split the state, get rid of the illegals and have new elections.
Yeah.. GO FOR IT… MAKE OUR DAY…..
