The Week’s Best Cartoons: Trump’s Goons

There are many things wrong in this nation this week, but none so WRONG as the invasion of Portland and now Seattle by Trump’s forces. This week’s round of cartoons by our friend TokyoSand covers it well. Thank you, TS!

There was a lot of news this week, but none bigger than Trump sending in unidentified federal agents to kidnap and harass citizens exercising their constitutional right to protest. The Portland Black Lives Matter protests have been going on for 50+ days now.

The nation’s great editorial cartoonists captured the moment like no one else can. Here are the best cartoons I found this week.

  1. This is a combination of funny and sad. It’s also scary. Why are so many people following this crazy man? I’m wondering what history will say one day. I guess it depends on who writes it. Wondering who will is even scarier. 😦 — Suzanne

    • There isn’t much actual “funny” in the political cartoons today, for they are altogether too real. As to why so many still follow this madman … I think ignorance is the key. They still believe what he tells them. AND … they are focused on re-shaping the world to be as they … and their religion … think it should be. White, Christian, male-dominated … he has promised them that and more. Sigh. This is a scary place to live, my friend. History will not shine any bright lights on Donald Trump, but he will go down as have Stalin, Mussolini and Hitler … a dark, evil person with no values, no compassion. But, that’s years ahead yet … for now, we must deal with today. Sigh.

    • WAY too close to the mark. It is only a matter of time before people begin getting killed, and where is Congress? Playing partisan politics, that’s where! Who stands for the people of this nation? Today, it would seem that nobody with any power or authority does. SIGH.

    • It surely does … and that’s so much what it feels like. He took an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution and serve the people of this nation. He is shredding the Constitution, breaking the law, and attacking We the People. Meanwhile, Congress cannot get past their partisan differences to uphold their own oaths, to do their jobs. Where else can we turn?


  2. Given the subject matter Trump made available to EdToonists this week, I thought this was an excellent collection. My best, the look Stantis of the Chicago Trib put on the face of Lady Liberty as she gets pulled down by Trump’s stormtroopers. It stands in ironic contrast to Trump saying he would save all the Confederate statues across the South.
    On an almost unrelated matter,who started the Democratic/Republican reversal where they started representing each other’s constituents, and how did that happen? It seems so antithetical or something.
