The Week’s Best Cartoons 6/13

I had a serious piece lined up for today … a re-blog … a dark, but important piece. But, I changed my mind when I woke with a dark cloud over my head this morning, and decided to go with TokyoSand’s excellent selection of political cartoons from the past week instead. As always, thank you T.S.!

Editorial cartoonists appear to be one of the last groups of people who speak out and say exactly what’s happening. They reveal what’s really going on behind all the pomp and circumstance in front of cameras and reporters, and entertain us along the way. Although to be clear, they’re not necessarily “funny.” Especially this week.

Here are our great editorial cartoonists on what they saw in the news this week.

  1. Anndd here we are two days late. Sorry about that.
    Powerful cartoons Jill. Some of those make me wonder whether there should be a site set up where folk can register how they tried to register, nationwide that might bring forth a very interesting figure.

    • I think it was he who wanted the wall … he thinks he’s so important that he must be protected, while the rest of us must risk our lives to jump-start “his” economy. But, yes, his ego is apparently wounded, and he’s seeking to repair that with his rally on Saturday. Frankly, I hope only about 20 people show up!

  2. Jill, the president’s tone deafness on the racial injustice, partly because of his racist bent and partly because he calculated that it helps with his strident base, is beyond poor form. His team’s pepper spraying civil protestors for his photo shoot is criminal. His mishandling of the pandemlc has allowed more Americans to be exposed and die and has ground the economy to a halt. He is quick to blame others, but we lost six weeks to plan and his misinformation has caused an unwarranted cavalier attitude that has heightened exposure.

    The cartoons make us laugh and think, but it is sad to think the US president is so chaotic, incompetent, indecent and unempathetic. Keith

  3. I like the We the People cartoon best. Editorial cartoonists appear to be one of the last groups of people who speak out and say exactly what’s happening but remember the other side have editorial cartoonists too though I hope they were as disgusted with the killing of George as the rest of the world.

    • That’s my favourite, too, and I’ve used it a couple of times in the past week. I’m sure I’ll be using it again … it speaks volumes. You make a good point about the other side … I haven’t popped over there to see lately, but perhaps I will do so this week.
