Here’s this week’s cartoon for CNN’s weekly opinion newsletter, Provoke and Persuade. Be sure to sign up to get those in your inbox every Sunday. It’s free and your subscribing will help me continue to make these for them.
I had already drawn the Conways in bed once this week (along with the cat), but when this idea hit, I liked it too much. I didn’t have to send as many ideas to CNN this week as I have been doing since this was chosen pretty early.
I thought the Mueller Report may have changed our direction and I’d be drawing something else for CNN on Saturday, but they chose to stick with this one. I was glad for that as I really liked it. The only thing I didn’t love was that I removed a detail.
I originally had Trump wearing face cream. My producer and her boss were afraid he wasn’t recognizable, so I removed it. I thought the night cream made it funnier but I didn’t want to ruin the cartoon entirely by people not being able to recognize Trump. I was going to post the other version here but then I realized that if I did, then some people would snipe it and then I’d have two different versions floating around the internet.
