  1. I’m sure cartoonists and late night show hosts are all going to really miss the material Trump provides. The rest of us not so much. One of the writers who’s written about him said he did the same thing to his parents as he’s doing to us and that’s why they sent him to military school. —- Suzanne

    • No doubt! He is indeed fertile ground. Heck, his hair alone gives cartoonists plenty to play with, especially since it changes from day to day. I’m sure he was not easy at any age. I always remember the story where when in military school, he got into an argument and tried to push another student out of a 2nd story window. They should have seen what he was right then and there.

    • So would I! I don’t know about the three you mentioned, but Garry Trudeau of Doonesbury fame has published two books on Trump … the first one, “Yuge!: 30 Years of Doonesbury on Trump”, I have, but the other just came out in September and I haven’t gotten it yet: “#Sad!: Doonesbury in the Time of Trump”


  2. Trump is the political cartoonist’s endless supply of workable material. The two Santa and Trump ones are my favorites, but Lady Liberty says it perfectly. I have often wondered what inspires a political cartoonist’s creativity. Dan Perkins, the creator of the very successful weekly comic strip “The Modern World” under the pen name of Tom Tomorrow, has provided insight to the mind of the editorial/political cartoonist. “To keep doing this job [draw political cartoons] week after week, I think you have to want to change the world, while understanding that you can’t. You have to hold both of these contradictory ideas simultaneously.” Thank-you!

    • Oh, if only I had the artistic talent Miss Goose has! I could say so much more with a single picture than I do with a thousand words! And have fun, too! But alas, a cracked eggshell is the limit of my artistic abilities. I do that well, though! Yes, Trump is, perhaps, the most fertile ground the political cartoonists have had in ages. That hair in itself, not to mention the fat, the small hands, the facial contortions, and of course the rhetoric, tweets, rants, idiocy and all the rest. He just begs to be mocked!


  3. Dear Jill,

    I love all the toons but my favorite was the last one where the president makes up an immigration crisis as he ignores the biggest real danger to US national security interests , that of climate change.

    Hugs, Gronda

  4. Jill, do you feel like the man is a walking comic strip character? He could be the pointy haired boss from Dilbert. He could be Mr. Dithers from Blondie. He could be General Halftrack from Beetle Bailey. Or, he could just be himself, which is actually worse than all three combined. Keith

    • You have absolutely hit that nail on the head, my friend! He is a walking Looney Toon (apologies to Mel Blanc and others). Worse than any of those three, or all three combined. And 40% of the nation love him???


  5. It’s curious that Mr Trump in his bad tempered ignorance senses there is something seriously wrong with the world and I believe many of us do , unfortunately he blames the innocent for the impending doom. There is a sense in which we can all learn from this error for often we are slow to amend our own behaviour and quick to pass on the blame.

    • After Dweezer mentioned the movie The Day After Tomorrow, I ended up re-watching it. Frightening stuff … I wish every single person, starting with Trump, who denies the effects of man-caused climate change could be made to watch that movie! Meanwhile, back at the ranch … Trump continues to demonize the helpless, the innocent, the poor, the persecuted. What a guy, huh?


  6. Not to be disrespectful at all to H.W., but isn’t it interesting in the first cartoon that Barbara has white hair in “heaven”? After all, the Christians (and the bible) say we (they) will all be “changed.” Hmmmm.
