This week, my editor tentatively decided on a cartoon of Sean Spicer and UFOs. Yeah, I worked those two subjects into one cartoon. We did that Thursday night and decided to make the final call the next morning (if you’re a Republican, the next morning was a Friday).
Thursday night, I watched Chris Cuomo attempt to get answers from Trump’s private lawyer and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. Rudy spent the entire time screaming about conspiracy theories involving Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and Ukraine. And then, Rudy admitted asking Ukraine to investigate Biden after initially denying it 30 seconds earlier.
The next morning, my editor said he still liked the Spicer/UFO cartoon but maybe could go with something on Rudy. I had already drawn about 15 roughs, but I wanted to do Rudy. I asked for a couple more hours and it was granted. I have such cool editors. And, they picked the cartoon you’re now seeing. I felt this was a win because he was hesitant about doing something on the whistleblower controversy as the story kept updating about every 20 minutes. But, I think we were safe with this Rudy cartoon.
If you’re a Republican, the whistleblower controversy is over Trump asking Ukraine to investigate Biden to help his re-election effort and possibly withholding money from them that has already been approved by Congress to help them fight militants in their country loyal to Russia. In case you’re a Republican, that is extortion and is illegal.
I read that Rudy is afraid he’ll be remembered for lying for Donald Trump. People will forget he was ever considered “America’s mayor” and remember him covering for a lying, racist, stupid president while engaging in conspiracy theories. He may also want to start worrying about going to prison as what he did in regards to Ukraine may be illegal.
