I apologize for not posting this one earlier. It was originally published June 6, 2018, in The Costa Rica Star.
There was a protest against Uber on the same day as Americans were protesting at the American embassy in Costa Rica. Taxi drivers were protesting against Uber, which is illegal in Costa Rica, and they were blocking roads. The Americans were protesting against Trump’s policy of separating families and creating baby prisons.
Including “Democrats Abroad” in the speech balloon was my editor’s editing. I didn’t really care as I didn’t think that detracted from the cartoon. I think he wanted it there as he’s a Trump supporter. Yes. A Canadian Trump supporter in Costa Rica who runs a newspaper. Go figure.
