Roughs, Volume 168

All of these roughs were drawn Thursday, January 12. They mostly focus on the first week of the Republican House majority.

I found a different way to do this cartoon, which I did draw and sent to my newspaper clients.

I’ve seen so many dumbass comments over the past couple of weeks about the FBI searching President Biden’s homes for classified documents, including the White House. I even saw a couple of dumbass cartoons on it. What’s even worse is, I saw it coming from Republicans in Congress and even Donald Trump. The reason it’s stupid is that there are classified documents in the White House and every elected official should know this. It’s usually where the president receives his daily briefings. Donald Trump knows this since it’s where he also received the daily briefings, and where he gave Russians classified information, and from where he stole classified documents and took them to Mar-a-Lago. Have I ever told you I hate stupid people?

This is another way I could have done it since I’m sure at least one moron on Fox News has asked about it.

It’s really hard to sum up all the lies into one simple cartoon. A bill was passed last year authorizing the IRS to hire an additional 87,000 agents over the next decade. Mostly, these would replace retiring agents. But MAGAts gaslighted this to be about armed agents coming after Joe Sixpack. But the intention of hiring more agents isn’t to come after me or you, but after tax cheats like Donald Trump and other billionaire assholes. House Republicans passed a bill revoking the hiring of these agents, claiming it was to protect me and you. Some even said they succeeded in stopping the hiring. It’s scary that there are representatives in Congress who don’t understand how passing a bill works and seriously need a Schoolhouse Rock refresher. Remember, “I’m just a bill, I am only a bill, and I’m sitting here on Capitol Hill”? Someone needs to play that for Lauren Boebert. Hey, they’re all on Disney Plus.

Just in case you still don’t understand: after the bill passes the House, it then needs to pass the Senate that has a Democratic majority, and then it has to get a signature from President Biden. The House passing a bill that won’t get through the Senate is really just a bunch of partisan noise.

Maybe House fucknuts don’t understand there are three branches of government, and they’re just half of one of those branches.

OK, maybe it is easy to sum up in one cartoon.

This is the cartoon CNN selected for last week’s Opinion newsletter, and they did it on a Thursday afternoon. That gave me all day Friday to draw it which I took because I needed that time to draw all the oranges.

I didn’t go with this one because my colleagues are all making the same kind of jokes, so I let it go. One of my YouTube commenters, Robert Coutinho said he’s getting tired of hearing about George Santos. Today, my editor at CNN told me the same thing. I drew a kickass cartoon today of Santos but I might need to chill on drawing Santos cartoons for a week or so.

I didn’t turn this rough into a real cartoon, but I knew I needed to do something about what the new GOP majority is doing to the ethics committee.

So I did this and it became a real cartoon.

I was reaching. It doesn’t work, even with the raccoon which I know you love.

This didn’t work either.
