Donald Trump claims labor secretary Alexander Acosta decided to resign, and he pushed for him to stay. If you believe that then you probably also believe Trump had the largest inauguration crowd, won the popular vote, millions of illegals voted, George Soros is funding caravan invasions, he never assaulted a woman, has the best words, his father was born in Germany, and accomplished more than any president before him (this is a very short list).
Trump has the habit of defending men who assault women (Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly, Roy Moore, Rob Porter, himself. Again, a short list), so he’s not going to have a problem with a prosecutor who cuts a sweetheart deal for one of them. But, if he thinks it’s going to reflect on him poorly, especially with an election coming up, buh-bye.
Trump demands loyalty while giving none.
Here’s the rough.
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!!!
