I thought it was about time for a ‘toon post … a bit of humour to dull the pain of the 24/7 news cycle where we are always being bombarded with some new abomination.
There was one bright spot last Friday, when Roger Stone was convicted on all seven felony counts with which he was charged. Now, if ol’ Roger had been charged and convicted for every crime he’s ever committed, according to my calculations, he would be serving a 2,347 year sentence. The truth of the matter is I won’t be surprised if Trump pardons him, but let’s enjoy his downfall while we can.
The thing that is on everybody’s mind, of course, are the ongoing impeachment hearings, and the cartoonists on both sides are having a field day.
Rather than either shutting up, or having some logical rebuttal to the witness testimonies, the republicans, most notably Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, and Trump himself, are engaging in a smear campaign. Why, Trump even tried to blame former Ambassador Marie Yovanovich for the Civil War in Somalia!
And speaking of Jim Jordan …
Some in the GOP seem to be having a hard time these days. It must be difficult to have to give full support to a ‘man’ who has no values, no integrity, lies, cheats and steals. Surely some of them are considering whether Trump is worth them throwing away their own careers.
The foundation for our government is the U.S. Constitution. Presidents take an oath to protect and uphold the Constitution. The document has withstood many challenges over the past 232 years, but I have to question whether it can stand up to the constant shredding and burning it is being put through under Donald Trump and his cadre of oafs.
And just a few miscellaneous ‘toons …
Remember when the worst thing the opposition could find to criticize the president for was wearing a tan-coloured suit? I long for the good ol’ days.
