Stormy


cjones02012018

Is it unfair of me to hit Melania Trump with a cartoon? Yeah. Political cartoons aren’t supposed to be fair. Show me a fair political cartoon and I’ll show you a crappy cartoon.

During the national meltdown that was Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, conservatives and liberals alike wondered, some demanded, why Hillary wouldn’t leave Bill. I don’t like to judge other people’s relationships. But, I wondered the same thing at the time. I thought, man…Hillary can never wear a blue dress ever again. But, there are differences between Hillary Clinton and Melania Trump.

The first thing is, Bill did not marry Hillary to be a trophy wife. Republicans can’t make that argument after spending over twenty years insulting her looks. Bill and Hillary married right out of college. They tied their careers together. They were real partners. Hillary and Bill married each other believing in building a future of great accomplishments. None of that is true for Melania and Donald.

Melania is Donald’s third wife, who he cheated with on wife number two, who he cheated with on wife number one. Trump has a long history of cheating, grabbing women, and just being an all-around asshole toward them. Trump has bragged about assaulting women and barging in on teenage girls undressing. None of this can be news to Melania.

It is extremely difficult to believe that Melania, who is 24 years younger than Donald, would be married to him if he wasn’t a supposed billionaire or famous TV personality. Beautiful models don’t marry old, racist assholes with bad comb-overs who paint themselves orange…unless they have a lot of money.

I feel Melania’s pain and humiliation over the revelation that Trump had an affair with a porn star and paid her hush money. I’d be pissed too. But, while this issue may be new news to Melania, the fact Trump is a piece of crap can’t be unless she really is stupid. She may be ignorant but she’s not stupid.

She is a victim of her husband and a fair target for my criticism. She didn’t ask for this, but she can’t be surprised. Look who she married. She can’t be entirely ignorant about plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s speeches either. Also, how can she look at anyone with a straight face while talking about her anti-bullying campaign? Has she reasoned to her young son, named after Trump’s pseudonym, why bullying is wrong except when Daddy does it?

Melania publicly slapped Trump’s hand away on an international trip. She ditched the Davos trip after the Stormy news came out. It’s reported in Fire And Fury that she has a separate bedroom from Trump which proves she is a human being. This is not a real marriage. She should get out.

Republicans in Washington may be selling their souls and dignity, but Melania still has a chance to redeem hers.

As Oprah would say, you go, girl.

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated. Want to help me continue to create cartoons and keep doing what I’m doing (pissing off conservatives)? Look to the right of this page and make a donation through PayPal. Every $40 donation will receive a signed print (please specify which print you want or I won’t mail one). All donations will receive my eternal gratitude

  1. I think drumpf will try to finalize his coup by firing Mueller soon and the Vichy Republicans won’t even blink.
    I really do hope that the great people of this country will destroy the GOP at the polls this year and this drumpf nightmare will end by December.

    For some therapy, I have been binge-watching “That 70s Show” lately.
    I really did not watch that series when it was a weekly back in its day, but in syndication on every day, that show is some good comic relief. Those were my days too. The 70s. With people in my life in high school very much like the characters on that show.

  2. I enjoyed this toon, but sympathy for Melania to any degree is a waste of time. Melania has always been as complicit as anyone in their circle of isolated, over-indulged, unsympathetic, money-grasping sows. “Eyes Wide Shut?” Melania’s eyes have been wide open; she may not need it, but she’s waiting for the big payoff from Russia. Melania has never done anything for anyone but for herself. Why anyone would think she gives two figs about the US, bullying(except where Baron is concerned) are unaware. Melania has everything to gain by waiting it out and will be paid handsomely for it.

  3. Whenever Melania’s name comes up, comments are divided between pity and “she knew the bargain she was making.” She didn’t sign up for *this*, though.

    Headline: “Porn actress Stormy Daniels says affair with Trump ‘never happened'”. Honey, anybody would be embarrassed to admit to it. Even somebody who screws on-camera for money has standards.
