‘Toons

I think it’s about time we found some humour in all the muck going on in this country today, don’t you?  Three things are big news this week:  ACA, also known as Obamacare, and the republican’s urge to ensure that some 20 million people will have no access to health care; Jussie Smollett’s sudden and mysterious exoneration; and of course the Mueller report, Barr’s slowness in releasing the entire report, and Trump’s false claim that he was cleared of any wrongdoing.  Let’s see what the talented cartoonists have done with these …

First, the Smollett case …

ACA?  Obamacare?  Trumpcare?

And of course the biggest news of the day spawns the most ‘toons …

  1. It amazes me that someone who has had multiple known associates/employees indicted for criminal acts can claim innocence. Is his employee screening process that bad or did he hire them because of their less than savory exploits? I choose the second option.

    • I’m with you, Don. Every single member of his cabinet was the worst possible choice for the job. A climate change denier for head of the EPA; a woman who doesn’t believe in public schools for Secretary of Education; a former oil & coal lobbyist for department of interior. All of them wealthy, all of them with questionable integrity … it was the plan, I’m sure. You’d think that just by accident he might have stumbled upon one person with integrity who knew what he/she was doing, wouldn’t you?

  2. A much needed and appreciated post! Political cartoons often provide more truth through art and a few words than many lengthy discourses manage to accomplish. That they also encourage us to maintain a sense of humor when we are desperately floundering is an added benefit. As William Arthur Ward so eloquently stated : “A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life.” Thank-you!

    • I love that quote! So true … without a sense of humour, we’d all be suicidal! These days, the humour in the political ‘toons is a bit on the side of darkness, but still, when I’m not crying, I can laugh. I especially enjoy the way some of the cartoonists draw Trump in such unflattering ways! 🙂
