White House Testes


CNN05102020

Here’s your 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 don’t wish for Donald Trump to catch the coronavirus. I don’t wish it anyone no matter how vile and reprehensible they are. I don’t wish it on Trump, his staff, or even those idiots marching around outside with Confederate flags, Swastikas, and nooses.

To me, wishing harm on someone else is a negative place to live. Get out of there. Also, it’s what Republicans do. There’s a reason we call them “shitweasels.” When you start wishing harm on people. what separates you from them?

And if nothing else, if Donald Trump acquires the virus, one of two things will happen: He either becomes a martyr or he gets to promote himself as conquering the virus.

I would rather people be held accountable. I don’t wish for Donald Trump to go to prison when he leaves the White House, but I wish for him to be held accountable. If that means he goes to prison, well that’s out of my hands because it doesn’t have anything to do with me.

I like to follow karma and karma says, “Don’t wish bad shit on people.” When you wish bad things on people, you may be bringing that wish upon yourself.

That said, Donald Trump has brought the pandemic to the White House. It’s not karma inflicting it upon him and his staff, it’s all on him.

Just like he pretended it wasn’t dangerous to the nation, he acted as though the White House was a place that wasn’t vulnerable to it. He’s refused to wear a mask, thus hardly anyone on his staff wears a mask. There are at least 400 people in and out of the White House on a daily basis with very little social distancing being practiced.

A personal valet to Donald Trump and Mike Pence’s spokesperson has tested positive for the virus. Pence’s spokesperson, Katie Miller is married to Stephen Miller, Trump’s chief goon of hate and racism. While Stephen hasn’t tested positive, he’s still reporting to work. Because he hasn’t tested positive doesn’t mean he won’t. The fact he’s not self-quarantining shows the Trump Administration still is not taking this pandemic seriously.

Donald Trump is still campaigning for his base to defy his own guidelines for dealing with the virus. He’s advocating for every state and business to reopen. Yet, it’s not even safe in the White House.

Tip Jar: This pandemic is hitting everyone, including your favorite goofy cartoonist. I have lost clients and I’m afraid I might lose more. The PayPal button has always been included here for those who can and want to voluntarily support what I do. I understand this time is hard on everyone. If you can’t, don’t contribute. Take care of yourself and your family first.

But, all and any help is greatly appreciated and it helps keep me going. Think of me like a street performing busking out tunes on a corner (I won’t play “Wonderwall.” I promise). If you like the tune, or in this case, toon, throw a buck into the tip jar. It’ll help me play another song, draw another toon, write another blog, make another video, and post another snarky post on social media. It’ll help keep me alive. You can also order a signed print for $40. And if you don’t like the PayPal option, you can snail mail it to my P.O. Box. 

You can purchase a signed print of this cartoon.
