I decided to step away from all the serious business and draw something kinda cute and funny, while still being mean. I’m going to draw another cartoon tonight so you should stay up for that. I don’t sleep so why should you?
Betsy DeVos is Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education. She is not qualified for the job and was totally unprepared for her confirmation hearing. She doesn’t seem to know the first thing about education, schools, math, etc.
She had a lot of absurd answers to questions during her confirmation hearing on Tuesday. The craziest one was where she said schools needed guns to ward off Grizzly bears. Bears, people. I can’t count the number of times this nation’s gone into mourning and lowered the flags to half-staff from all the Grizzly attacks on elementary schools. Tragic indeed.
It reminds me of the movie Anchorman which is set in the 1970s. The news crew is really upset the station hired a female newscaster. One of the newscasters arguments was “I heard their menstrual cycle attracts bears.” Another chauvinist chimes in “great. Now you’ve put the entire newsroom in danger.”
Bears. They’re out there. They want to eat your children. Especially during school hours.
Creative note: As many of you know I don’t draw on paper anymore. I use a tablet. Right as I started coloring this cartoon the tablet gave me a notification that it was down to 6 percent battery power. What? I knew I plugged the thing in last night. I plugged it in again and started working with it on my lap. I was too lazy to play musical outlets at my desk. Shortly after I resumed working I discovered it wasn’t charging at all. I was afraid something was wrong with the battery or the charger. As it turns out, the charger wasn’t connected with itself. The geniuses at Microsoft stocks a charger that comes in two pieces. I must have kicked it or something last night as I had unplugged it from itself.
This creative note wasn’t anything important or needed to know by anyone. I just felt like ranting. I hate drawing on my lap.
