A Gift From God

Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday.

Hmm. What happened to it coming from China?

Donald Trump has called the Trump Virus a “blessing from God.” He’s tweeted that we shouldn’t fear the virus that’s killed over 210,000 Americans or allow it to “dominate our lives,” you know…if after catching it, you still have a life to dominate.

Trump cultists are now championing Trump’s survival of the Trump Virus and are praising his words about defeating it. The White House Gift Shop (which is not really affiliated with the White House) is now selling a commemorative Donald Trump defeating Covid coin for $100.00. No word yet on where that $100.00 is going or if they plan to introduce a Herman Cain did not defeat Covid commemorative coin.

But all this talk about defeating Covid, don’t be afraid, don’t let it dominate your life, or that it’s a “blessing from God,” is all big talk for a guy who was airlifted from the White House in Marine One to Walter Reed Medical Center where a team of the nation’s leading doctors surpervised him around the clock while treating him with experimental medication.

It was estimated by The New York Times that Trump’s medical treatment of steroids and an experimental cocktail would cost the average American over $100,000. I think that’s on the low end since many Americans who have battled the Trump Virus have received bills for over $400,000. Very few have been airlifted to Walter Reed to be greeted by lying doctors (for the sake of my proofer, that was a joke. None have been airlifted to Walter Reed for treatment. Sheesh).

Keep in mind, we paid for Trump’s medical treatment. He didn’t contribute much to it since over the past decade, he’s only paid about $1,500.00 in income taxes. Also, your medical bill for fighting the Trump Virus may be even more astronomical because Mr. Covid Miracle Boy who claims he’s a perfect physical specimen and extremely young, is fighting in court to take away your healthcare.

Donald Trump and his White House refuse to tell us when he lasted tested negative before he tested positive…or if he’s been tested since acquiring the Trump Virus. But whether we ever really know that answer or not, we will be the ones paying the bill for those tests.

A Trump cultist trolled this cartoon on Instagram and said I was lying and Donald Trump never said the Trump Virus was a “gift from god.” He repeated his claim several times until I finally replied and posted a link to The New York Times quoting Donald Trump saying it’s a “Blessing from God.” Then, in typical Trump trolling fashion, the cultist said, “he didn’t mean it like that.”

But this cartoon is right. If Donald Trump wins the election or remains in the White House through some fraudulent means, he will allow you to contract the Trump Virus.

Joe Biden? Why, that guy will fight to deny us the joy of acquiring the Trump Virus.

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 performer 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.

  1. TRUMP getting Covid was supposed to be a gift from God to the world, but Trump offered his first-born to the devil in exchange for a chance at another 4 years in the White Playhouse. The devil goofed. He forgot he already had Trump’s first-born, as well as a bunch of others. So, Trump gets his way again.
