Trumping, Tweeting, Trolling


cjones11122016

A lot of people are upset that Trump haters are protesting the election. When I say “a lot of people” I’m talking about Republicans. They point out that this is a democracy and Democrats should accept the results of a fair election.

The problem with that is we are a democracy and our Constitution, for now, allows protests (and political cartoons that point out that Donald Trump is a racist). The other problem is that our election wasn’t really fair.

Donald Trump was elected with fewer votes than Hillary Clinton which is the second times this has happened since 2000, both times putting the Republican candidate into office. Trump was also supported by a foreign government who was hacking into his opponent’s email system and displaying their internal messages for all the world to see. Some of the messages were suspected to be doctored. Another assist for Trump came from the FBI which might be the final straw that convinced nimrods to mark the ballot for Trump.

The big issue with the Russians and the FBI is that both were apparently communicating with the Trump campaign. How fair of a system is that?

Before the election Trump claimed the electoral system was rigged. He complained about the electoral college and said he might refuse to accept the results if he won. That shows even he was surprised he won. What does he think of that rigged system now?

So while there are protests against Trump there are supporters of his attacking and intimidating African-Americans, Muslims, and Latinos. It’s not just happening in our streets. It’s happening in our schools. Children are being intimidated for the color of their skin by other children whose parents are doing a bang-up job raising little racist bastards. Trump tweeted out that complaint about protesters “Incited” by the media while ignoring his own inciting. He later tweeted support to the protesters and how wonderful it was they can express themselves. I’m thinking his team returned his Twitter account to him a bit too soon. If the guy’s Twitter account makes blood spill what’s he going to do when he gets the nuclear codes?

I wasn’t sure how this cartoon would work with posting a photo in it. I did it a year ago, or maybe two years, for a cartoon I drew for The Daily Dot. I remember thinking that turned out really well though I can’t remember what it was. I could look in my files but, eh. I’m lazy.

Did you like this cartoon? Want to help a cartoonist make a living? Look to the right of this page and make a donation through Paypal. I need to buy pens, paper, sandwiches, and dog food. The starving cartoonist and his Beagle appreciates it. If you’ve donated in the past, THANK YOU!!!

  1. Clay, I think you may have started a trend  – and I hope you continue using it.
    With the marmalade hairball still not having a clue that the tweeting thing will continually show who he really is – the photo in the cartoon does, priceless.

    1. You never know. I see photos inserted into the artwork of political cartoons a good bit. This took a little work as I rarely use Photoshop anymore and I had to keep resizing it before I got to the size I liked. There some trial and error.

  2. If he thought this protest was bad, wait until he sees the one when the people that voted for him realize what that means for them. In the words of Johnny Rotten “Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?”

  3. Let’s be logical here. This is not the second time in this century that this has happened.

    George W Bush won with nearly 55% of the popular vote. 5 to 4. No Electoral College needed, the decision was made in the SCOTUS.

    1. Wrong, Roberts. I looked at several websites including Wiki and they agree: Gore got 50,999,897 to Bush’s 50,456,002. Gore got more votes. Let’s be logical here.

      1. One of these russian troll commenters a few days ago contradicted me and said trump won the popular vote over HRC…..the truth is very slippery with some, even after the election is over.
