What will ISIS claim retroactively responsibility for next? [cartoon]

aNewDomain — After a self-radicalized American shooter massacred 49 patrons at Orlando gay nightclub Pulse and retroactively associated himself with ISIS, the Islamic State claimed responsibility for his actions.

That’s how ISIS works: you do what you want in their name, then they claim you. Now Donald Trump is threatening sanctions against Muslim immigrants, and Hillary Clinton claims to have a plan to racially profile potentially self-radicalized lone wolves. Because both favor bombing Muslim countries, Trump and Clinton are serving ISIS interests. Will ISIS claim them?
