Roughs, Volume 177

All of these, except one, were drawn last Friday, March 31, after word came down that Trump was going to definitely be indicted and that he would be turning himself in. I drew all these roughs and then I bought a ticket to New York.

This was roughed out several weeks ago and the completed version was drawn in a Dunkin’s Donuts in Manhattan. But they never did take a mugshot of the guy.

I strongly considered using this one.

I really liked this one but passed it over. As it turns out, they never did handcuff him.

I thought I was going to draw this one but then I didn’t.

I could probably save this one for when he’s actually in jail. I think that’s coming, but probably not from this case.

This is probably my least favorite of the bunch.

I kinda like this one.

This is the cartoon CNN selected for last week’s newsletter.

Watch me draw:



  1. I have a tie between the MAGA rally from jail and the No what huh goptahphant composing about prosecutions. But on second thought not mail rally cuz of Letter from the Birmingham Jail. To easy for ratso to validate his fake injustice bullshite. Thanks.


  2. The Stormy one is perfect. The cartoon with him in jail could perhaps have a different quote, but still terrific? (i.e. “I am in charge.” “Make Trump Free Again.”??) The Jeffrey Epstein cartoon made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that, Clay.


  3. My favorite is the elephant whining about real criminals, then being asked about Jan. 6th.
    Q: Why wasn’t he cuffed for his arraignment?
    A: They didn’t have any that small…
