A Super Bad ID


cjones08072018

Donald Trump, the man of the people who understands the working class, argued for voter IDs by saying everyone needs to show their IDs at grocery stores.

Now, since he was speaking at one of his rallies in Florida, every cashier in the Tampa region is going to have to deal with IDs being shoved in their faces by QAnon idiots each time they purchase toilet paper.

Of course, you don’t need an ID to purchase groceries. What’s obvious here is that Trump has never shopped for his own food in his entire life. As we have all come to learn, not knowing about something doesn’t stop Donald Trump from explaining how it works.

The nuclear triad, what NATO does, the three branches of government, the president of Puerto Rico, islands are surrounded by water, who fought in the War of 1812 or what year it was, the difference between HPV and HIV, invisible airplanes, the alphabet…there’s a lot of stuff Trump does not know. Now we can add grocery shopping. But, if you need someone to explain money laundering, how to steal from a charity or bust into a dressing room full of teenage girls, Trump’s your expert.

White House Spokesgoon Sarah Huckabee Sanders condescendingly explained to the press that he was talking about beer, liquor, and wine at grocery stores, and if they weren’t asking for IDs, then there was a problem with that store.

No. The problem is that you believe we’re stupid enough to buy that defense. The other problem is that we’re becoming used to this new stupidity and it’s becoming the new normal.

George H. W. Bush was once mocked and derided for being amazed at scanners in grocery stores. It perpetuated the image he was out of touch and didn’t understand the real world. That image aided in his defeat to Bill Clinton. But, President Bush wasn’t stupid. He was just out of touch.

Donald Trump is stupid. He probably still believes you need an ID at a grocery store (though he left that line out of his rally speech). I don’t know if Trump employs anyone who will correct him. The only person in the White House who can’t get fired is Ivanka, and we know she’s not going grocery shopping.

But, maybe Trump has done some of his own shopping. Because, that brain he bought was from someone named Abby Normal.

Creative note: If you don’t get this cartoon because you’re unfamiliar with the pop culture reference, then I’ll take the blame. It’s my super bad.

Your support in the form of donations is appreciated. I am fully independent as I’m not employed by a newspaper or with a major syndicate (leaving one to be independent). It does take a lot of work to provide you with cartoons, columns, and videos almost every day (more than any other political cartoonist), and I don’t charge my clients much at all. If you can, please consider making a financial contribution to keep the fun flowing, or purchase a signed print for $40. Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!!

Watch me draw.

  1. Unless it’s changed recently (or NYC is different from the state), you can’t buy liquor or wine in a grocery store. Of course, Trump doesn’t drink, so showing i.d. for alcohol purchases isn’t something he’s ever done, so why would SHS use that excuse? (rhetorical question – I know why)

  2. If Sarah Huckabee-Sanders is not aware that although beer and wine are sold in grocery stores liquor is not, perhaps she, like Trump, hasn’t been grocery shopping in the past couple of centuries either.

  3. Ideally, ID should be asked for when purchasing alcohol anywhere. Washington State has all kinds of alcohol sold in every grocer, including Rite Aids. You can special order alcohol from around the world if you are willing to pay for it. The whole ID thing is a way to intimidate every minority from sea to shining sea with 45’s con, conniving fascist rhetoric. It appeals to people that blame their screwed-up lives on all but themselves. The true Trump breeding ground. 45 is pushing his base to further violence. We know why.

    Well, of course 45*’s Followers KNOW that is true because they Always Buy Alcohol, Tobacco, and/or Firearms (ATF, get it?) when they do their grocery shopping.

    Not familiar with McLovin, but I did go to school with Abby Normal.
