Trumpy World


CNN06162019

Here’s your weekly cartoon for CNN’s weekly newsletter, Provoke/Persuade. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday for the rest of your life.

I submitted several sketches to CNN this week, then the editor came up with “cast changes for the next season of Trump World.” I thought I’d see what I could do with it. And, he liked it. I wasn’t even sure I could do anything with it as he’s thrown out concepts before I couldn’t do much with at all.

After it was done, they asked me on Friday night to make a few changes. Unfortunately, I wasn’t home. It was 9:00 PM when he sent the email which I didn’t notice. At 10:00 PM, he texted. I worked on a bit later that evening and in the morning we talked on the phone over the changes. Basically, they were afraid I went to town on making the women ugly. Even Amanda thought I could tone it down a little.

So, if you think they’re not very attractive in this version then you should have seen the other one.

Be Complicit

What kind of person would want to be part of something that disparages, slanders, and disrespects Dear Leader and his sycophantic followers? Hopefully, you. 
Making a contribution supports my work and keeps the cartoons, columns, and videos coming. My income is from newspapers that subscribe to my work and small contributors. George Soros hasn’t sent me a million dollar check in weeks. Making a contribution of any amount, or buying a print for $40.00, makes you part of this specific resistance, and a member of Team Claytoonz (we’re still working on the name). You are complicit, an accomplice, and in cahoots (and whatever gangster terms we can think of) with this political satire pointing out that the stupid emperor has no clothes. Contributions can be made through PayPal, checks, and wads of cash exchanged in back alleys.
Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!! 

You can purchase a signed print of this cartoon.

Watch Me Draw.

  1. How is it possible to make the grotesque any less ugly? It’s nice to know CNN is sensitive to the feelings of the current administration. They certainly wouldn’t want to get on the bad side of these guys over a simple cartoon.
