A Trumpian Anthem


cjones01142018

This isn’t about the fucking language, fuckers.

I heard that argument this morning on MSNBC. Some right-wing douchie Trump defending tool brought up instances where other politicians have used salty language. They excused this instance for the way Trump talks.

Is there a requirement that to be a Republican you must surrender all abilities to rationalize and equivocate?  Again, it’s not about the language, Shithead.

I said I was tired yesterday, but I got a couple hours of sleep and I’m raring to go again. Yesterday I was pissed at Trump. Today, I’m pissed at his defenders.

Senator Dick Durbin has confirmed Trump’s “shithole” comments. He was the only Democrat in a room with nine Republicans. Two of those Republicans say they can’t recall Trump making the “shithole” comment. One hasn’t confirmed the exact words but has said he took Trump to task for his comments. One Republican has denied it was ever said and that it’s a Democrat lie. That one Republican is Donald Trump.

Dick Durbin is a politician, and politicians do lie. But, I don’t believe Durbin would create a lie about words coming out of the president’s mouth that nine Republicans could deny. Why would he put himself out on a ledge like that unless it’s true, and he’s calling his GOP colleagues out?

Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, two very horrible sycophantic people, are the ones who say they don’t recall the president making the “shithole” comments. If those two United States Senators can’t pay attention, then maybe they shouldn’t be involved in government meetings over heavy weighty things like immigration and stuff.

Lindsey Graham said he called the president out, while not confirming the quotes. None of the eight Republican senators in attendance at that meeting have refuted Durbin’s account.

Then we have Trump who has denied it. The White House has denied it. The White House has called Durbin a liar while criticizing him for leaking comments from a private meeting. Which is it? Is he lying or is he leaking? You can’t leak lies, assholes.

Trump tweeted that these accusations are lies, right after he tweeted that Obama had moved the U.S. embassy, which was a lie. You would think that if you want credibility on a certain day, that you’d cut back on the lying for at least an hour or so.

It’s also been reported that Trump was on the phone all night with friends asking how this will play with his base. Again, is this a lie or an actual comment? Are you hoping words you didn’t say will increase your support? Are we actually doing the wink-wink-nudge-nudge thing?

Do you know who believes Trump made those comments? The assholes over at The Daily Stormer. They believe it and they’re ecstatic.

Creative notes: This is kind of a bonus cartoon. I don’t normally like drawing on the same subject two times in a row. But, this is kinda big. I had a difficult time getting my idea last night. Today, they won’t stop coming. You’ll get another cartoon from me Saturday morning. I’m not sure what that’ll be on yet.

Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated.

$#!+Hole Countries


cjones01132018

Thursday was a very disgusting day.

I was revolted, disgusted, ashamed, and angered by the president of the United States “shithole” comment. Most of all, I’m tired.

I’m tired of the daily insanity emanating from the White House. I’m tired from the president telling over 2,000 lies within a year. I’m tired of Trump people trying to explain racism, sexism, and stupidity as something other than it is. I’m tired of people who believe it’s racism that’ll make America great again. I’m tired that this is becoming normal. The new normal is “shithole” being repeated over and over on CNN.

I’m tired of waiting for Trump supporters, who claimed Obama was the most racially divisive president in history, to stop defending this excuse of a human being in the Oval Office and for them to react with some dignity and reason. That’s not going to happen.

Trump supporters took to the airwaves and social media last night and tried to defend Trump by talking about “merit-based” for immigration. Shithole is not about merit-based. They defended Trump by stating he’s open to allowing more people from Asian nations to immigrate here. If you hate black people but like Asians, you’re still a racist.

Former congressman and relentless Trump defender Jack Kingston went on CNN and said if Trump was a racist that we’d know it by now. I’m too tired to laugh. I’m also too tired to go over, again, every instance of Trump’s racism over the past four decades.

The White House isn’t even denying Trump’s statements, with some believing it’ll go over well with his base. It makes me tired knowing they’re right. Trump’s racism is the number one reason most white people voted for him.

During an immigration meeting with senators which included a discussion of the fate of immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and some African nations, Trump reportedly said, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” He said, “Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out.”

He then said he’d like to see more people come here from Norway. In case you’re geographically ignorant, those “shithole” nations are majority black. Norway is home to the whitest people on the planet.

The inscription on the Statue of Liberty reads in part, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Nobody tired, poor, and in huddled masses yearning to breathe free is coming from Norway.

We should accept people into this nation based on who they are, not where they’re from. When I was a child I was led to believe that America is a melting pot and our diversity is our greatest strength. It might sound naive but a few things from childhood have remained with me to adulthood. I still love Snoopy. The Chicago Cubs will always be my team. Ketchup on a hot dog is un-American. And, America’s greatness comes from its immigrants. It’s our blending of cultures that make us unique in the world. Immigrants built this nation.

Since Trump is so infatuated with Norwegians, you would think the White House would be capable of spelling “Norway.” On Wednesday, they announced that Trump was meeting with the Prime Minister of Normay. Trump does have a thing about Scandinavia as he once claimed he was of Swedish descent when his ancestors, the Drumpfs, are actually from Germany. Then again, maybe he’s just a fan of the Smedish Bikini Team.

Trump’s comments aren’t as much about the “shitholes” as they are about the people from those places. There are shitholes in the world. According to Ancestry.com, I’m 55% British (19% Irish and 14% Scandinavian. Eat your heart out, Trump. The rest is all Euromutt). I bet there’s a lot of people in the UK that can point out places in their nation they think are shitholes. But, if someone is strong enough and has the perseverance to climb out of a shithole and make something of themselves, isn’t that the exact type of person we need in our nation? If you say that only people from the white countries can make our economy stronger, you’re a liar and a racist. Plus, if someone believes their country is so bad that even a nation led by a shithead like Trump is an improvement, then let’s give that poor bastard a shot.

I’m not afraid of not being in the majority anymore. Our nation will continue to grow stronger from our diversity, even if white people aren’t leading the way. I’m already taking Spanish lessons. Mis pantalones son negros.

As I said, I’m tired. I’m not even laughing at this crap anymore. I don’t even like this cartoon that much because I’m tired of having to confront this repeatedly. But I can’t remain tired because I refuse to lie down and accept this “new normal.” I will reject it again and again. No matter how many times he hits me, I’m hitting back. When Trump hits my country, he’s hitting me. There are more of us than there are of them, and we all have to hit back, no matter how tired we get from throwing punches.

It’s been said that when someone shows you who they are, believe them. Donald Trump likes to say “believe me.” He has shown us who is again and again. He has shown us he is a racist. It’s about time that each of us believes him.

Creative notes: I’m also tired of drawing Klansmen and Nazis. Gee, why don’t I think outside the box and drawing something else? Trust me. I am. I could have made this so much worse.

I had people tell me on social media that Trump is making this easy, and he’s practically drawing the cartoons for me. That’s when it gets hard. Gross is easy. I could come up with something that’s truly disgusting and it would get shared a million times on social media. But those are the types of ideas idiots will create memes out of and pass around. When you start drawing cartoons like that, you’re not even creating commentary anymore. That is the danger of Trump. You should be outraged but you have to be careful that your outrage doesn’t match his vulgarity. If you’re merely telling people Trump is a vulgar person then you might as well draw weather cartoons. People already know Trump is vulgar, and they know when it’s cold outside.

Last night, Don Lemon said he’s tired of being outraged. Me too. He said it’s more beneficial to be strategic than outraged. That’s what I’m trying to do. If all I have is outrage then I’m not working for newspapers anymore. I’m working for Facebook and being paid only in exposure. I’m not going to work for free for Mark Zuckerberg.

Plus, the challenge is to take something really bad, like “shithole” or Donald Trump, and push the envelope to the edge where it is still acceptable for good newspapers. I say “good” newspapers because there’s a lot of newspapers that won’t run anything on Trump. Believe me.

Ivanka’s Resistance


cjones01122018

Ivanka Trump has such grace, such beauty, such poise. Why she could be a model…for nepotism.

The only reason Ivanka is working as an unpaid adviser to the president is because her daddy is the president. And, as an unpaid adviser, she is worth every penny.

Her presence in the White House was reasoned by her being a rational and sobering influence upon her father, which is an admittance that he’s freaking insane. She has openly discussed how she would be an advocate for women’s issues, especially pay equity. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Ivanka’s promise of being an advocate for women has gone the way of Melania’s anti-online bullying campaign. It would be like Michelle Obama promoting eating vegetables while sitting in bed eating cheeseburgers every night.

Ivanka and Melania were both silent over accusations from 19 women of Trump’s sexual harassment, and his boasting of “grabbing pussy,” except when they have defended Trump for it. Ivanka was silent when Trump went after Mika Brzezinski’s looks and criticizing her for cosmetic surgery, which I’m sure, is totally foreign to the Trump family. She was silent when Trump tweeted that New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand would do anything for money. She has been silent every time Trump has racially thumped Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren by calling her “Pocahontas.” She was silent when Trump went after Carmen Yulin Cruz, the female mayor of San Juan, or the Congresswoman Frederica Wilson and a war widow. She’s also made no remarks on reports that Trump requires women in the White House to “dress like women,” whatever that means.

She has not promoted equal pay or taken her father to task for taking healthcare away from women and threatening reproductive rights. He likes to grab ’em and legislate ’em.

Maybe, the very worst of this is her silence after Daddy Dumbass endorsed Roy Moore. Ivanka tweeted that there’s a special place in Hell for people who prey on children, but her strong position evaporated after the cheeseburger-loving Cheeto endorsed the pedophile.

After Oprah Winfrey drew praise for her speech at the Golden Globes, standing up for women and denouncing sexual harassment and assaults, Ivanka decided to jump on the bandwagon.

Straight from the department of Are You Freaking Kidding Me, Ivanka tweeted, “Just saw @Oprah‘s empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes. Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP.”

Time’s up? You’re late to the party. You don’t have a freaking clue what time it is. “Let’s all come together?” Come together and do what? Sit silently when Daddy attacks another woman?

Ivanka standing up for empowering women has as much credibility as Sebastian Gorka in a pussy hat. She has more “togetherness” with the propaganda ministers, Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Stephen Baby Goebbels Miller. The only hashtag President Daddy’s little million dollar princess should be sending out is #complicit.

Ivanka needs to leave the White House and end the ruse she’s perpetuating that she’s actually serving a purpose. With that, we can say “time’s up.”

Buh-Bye Bannon


cjones01112018

If there is one thing we know about Republicans it’s that they will sell out their principles and everything they believe in to get what they want.

Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury has Washington in a tizzy, but we already knew Republicans in Congress, and even those in the Trump administration, believe the president isn’t fit for the job. Every reporter who covers the capitol has been told off-the-record by Republicans that Donald Trump is a maladjusted racist, xenophobic lunatic. But, they can work with that as long as the lunatic signs what they put on his desk.

Utah’s Jason Chaffetz said he couldn’t vote for Trump because he’d have to explain it to his daughter. Then that guy endorsed and voted for Trump, and I never heard how he explained it to his daughter. Ted Cruz said Trump was a sniveling coward for making fun of his wife’s looks, and then he has his daughters doing the Oval Office photo-op with the guy. Maybe if his wife was prettier then he wouldn’t have sold her out so easily. Lindsey Graham said Trump was racist and xenophobic and now he’s helping him deflect the Russia investigation.

Once upon a time, defending our nation from Russia was a part of the Republican platform. Now, these bastards will sell out their nation and kill investigations into Russia meddling in our election and colluding with the Trump campaign.

It’s the most despicable, racist, xenophobic lot of them that will eat each other when the going gets tough. Steve Bannon was the scariest Republican in the country last week. This week, he’s been banished from Republican Haterville because of bad things he said about Trump’s children, even though everything he said is actually true.

Ivanka is a dumbass, as her “TIMESUP” tweet yesterday perfectly illustrates. Don Jr did commit a treasonous act by meeting Russian agents in Trump Tower for dirt on Hillary. “Javanka” is an awesome nickname for Ivanka and her creepy husband, Jared, though they probably think it’s the capital of Indonesia.

Bannon is a perfect example of a narcissist selling out his principles. He isn’t denying his comments nor is he apologizing for them. Instead, he claims he wasn’t talking about Don Jr. when he called him “treasonous.” That is a lie as he was most definitely talking about Don Jr. He claims he was talking about Paul Manafort but how is Manafort a traitor while “Fredo,” Bannon’s nickname for Junior, isn’t? You either stand by your comments or you apologize. It’s either one or the other and not some lame-ass middle ground which Bannon is trying to take. He would have done better if he said that he meant “treasonous” in the good way.

Now, Bannon is out at Breitbart. Why? Because the moneybags propping up that bastion of white nationalism told them to kick him to the curb, feed him to the wolves, throw him under the bus, etc. These people will eat their own when the going gets tough.

Trump’s propaganda minister Stephen Miller was once thought of as Bannon’s ally on kicking Muslims and Mexicans out of the country and everything else related to white nationalism. Last Sunday, Baby Goebbels went on CNN and while making a huge ass out of himself to Jake Tapper said Bannon was an “angry, vindictive person” whose “grotesque comments are so out of touch with reality.” Miller, showing us all how in touch with reality he is, went on to describe Trump as a political genius. If you saw that exchange like I did, you too needed a shower afterward.

Without Trump or Breitbart, Bannon will find it difficult to fulfill his pledge of ousting Senate Majority Leader and stand-in for turtles Mitch McConnell. After endorsing a pedophile and multiples felons for Congress, the only person Bannon could screw out of a job was himself. How bad do you have to be for Breitbart not to want you anymore? It seems making unkind remarks toward Junior and Javanka is worse than endorsing pedophiles.

Now Breitbart is seeking a new director for its hate campaign. Breitbart is not a news outlet. When the wingnuts in your life defend the publication as a counter to the “lame-stream media,” smack them upside their heads. Breitbart is not a counterweight to news. News presents facts. You may not like the facts. Maybe you have a legitimate beef that at times a news outlet will spend too much time with some facts and not enough with others. But facts are still facts. How do you run a campaign against facts? You use propaganda…which is often referred to as bullshit.

Have you ever read the comments underneath a Breitbart story? If your answer is no, good. Don’t go there. It’s a hotbed for racist and Breitbart has never tried to dissuade hate goons from lounging in their house. Breitbart attracts the same readership as The Daily Stormer, which is a Nazi website. Fun stuff.

The only problem with these people eating their own is what comes out later.

Creative notes: There are some things I have to look up every time I draw them, no matter how many times I’ve done it in the past or even how recently. I always look up the American flag to make sure I have the order of the stripes correct (red on top and bottom, and first strip under the field of blue is white). I always look up the Confederate flag because I get paranoid about where the red and blue is placed, which is stupid because I used to live in Mississippi, and that thing was everywhere.

Sometimes as I’m researching I go down internet wormholes, which helps me waste time and procrastinate while working. It’s not always hard work that makes me spend six hours on a cartoon. But while surfing the Klan logo today (for the 987th time), I found a story about a sweet old lady who makes custom robes by hand for Klansmen. Before she ships them off to their wizard, poobah, or cyclop, she blesses each and every one of them. Well, won’t somebody bless her? There was a really nice photo of children wearing her handiwork.

Sometimes, I like to be reminded that there are some seriously fucked up people out there.

Oprah 2020


cjones01102018

If this was two years ago, I’d think the idea of Oprah Winfrey running for president was a lousy idea.

I’m in favor of celebrities being involved politically. Let them donate money, make speeches and appearances on the behalf of candidates. Why shouldn’t they have the same right as you or I? But, running for office?

Sometimes it works out. Clint Eastwood was mayor of Carmel, California for a few years. Sonny Bono was mayor of Palm Springs, California and then a Republican member of Congress until he met that tree. Jesse Ventura went from professional wrestling and acting to become governor of Minnesota. The most famous is probably Arnold Schwarzenegger who became the Governator of California. Even Gopher from Love Boat became a Congressman from Iowa (where there are no boats).

In each of those cases, the celebrities boned up on the issues. They were familiar with the details of the jobs. They knew how to answer questions without people wondering if they were suffering from a brain aneurysm.

Donald Trump has given celebrity politicians a bad reputation. Sure, Trump won, but that was despite a lot of things. Even if we put aside the racism, the trolling, the tweeting, the sexism, the xenophobia, the assorted Nazis he surrounds himself with, the juvenile attacks, the thin skin, the corruption, the nepotism, the illiteracy, the lying, the insanity, the goading of another madman into a nuclear war, and every example of Trump fuckery, he still doesn’t know the issues. He hasn’t even expressed any interest in learning. When he does actually learn something he thinks he’s the first to hear about. Did you hear about uranium? Did you know the history of Korea is complicated? How about healthcare? Did you know Puerto Rico is an island surrounded by water (unlike islands that are not surrounded by water)?

So normally I’d discourage excitement over a celebrity running for office. But these aren’t normal times. Run, Oprah, run!

Yes, I will vote for Oprah Winfrey over Donald Trump. But with all due respect to Oprah, I’d vote for a garbanzo bean over Donald Trump.

Oprah is better qualified for the job and would most likely be a more attractive candidate than either the bean or the orange eggplant.

First off, she’s not stupid. If she’s ever read a single book, and she probably has since she has her own book club, she knows more about the issues than Donald Trump.

She has empathy. Trump couldn’t spell “empathy” if you spotted him the first six letters. Oprah has been poor. She can relate to everybody.

She’s an actual billionaire, while there’s serious doubt about Trump’s wealth because it’s all tied up in Rubles. She’s also a self-made billionaire and is worth nearly $3 billion. Trump inherited his wealth which he believes makes him a genius.

Oprah is 66-years-old, which is younger than Trump and Hillary Clinton. She also doesn’t have stupid family members she’d give government positions too.

Oprah runs an entertainment company too, but it doesn’t cater to morons like The Apprentice. Harpo Studios produces movies, TV shows, and Oprah’s magazine.

Another perk of electing Oprah: It’d freak Republicans out. Electing a successful black woman to the highest office in the land would probably make Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller move to Russia. Rush Limbaugh would have a heart attack on the air. Sean Hannity would have a live on-air birth to kittens. I would start watching Fox News for the meltdowns alone. If you think a black man in the office pushed them to the edge, wait until you put a black woman in there.

Last year, we saw women turn out the vote and deliver victory for Democrats in places like Virginia, New Jersey, and even Alabama. Black women were the deciding factor in Alabama. In case you forgot since the previous paragraph, Oprah is black.

Women love Oprah. Black women, white women, and even Republican women. The Republicans would have a hard time running an opposition campaign against Oprah and talking crap about her. Trump would try though. He talked shit about the Pope. Also, Trump hates women, especially black women. Doubly especially black women who are smarter than him, which is basically all of them except for Omarosa. Actually, she’s probably smarter than Trump too.

Oprah would crush Trump in an election. His victory was a total fluke in the first place. He needed the right numbers, votes, and Russians in the all the right places for that to work out. Can he do it twice? Can he do it against Oprah? I have doubts he could do it against the garbanzo bean.

Oprah won’t run, but I didn’t think Trump would run either. I overestimated Trump’s intelligence. Oprah is probably too smart to subject herself to a two-year presidential campaign, and then the nightmare of the job cleaning up after Trump. Trump didn’t even think about the job before he got it. He’s still not thinking about it. He thinks about insults, how he’s victimized and cheeseburgers.

Oprah got everyone excited over one decent speech she gave at the Golden Globes, which is one more than Trump has ever given. So, I’m not going to encourage Oprah to run but if she does, I’m on the Oprah train. You go, girl!

Plus, if she wins, maybe we’ll all get new cars.

Scoochin’ For Mittens


cjones01092018

With the announcement that Utah Senator Orrin Hatch would not seek reelection, speculation immediately landed on former Massachusetts governor and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

There was also speculation that Hatch had lost his freaking mind when he made comments that the Donald Trump presidency may be the best we’ve ever seen. Trump was pushing Hatch to run for reelection as he’s been a loyal and obedient lap dog for Trump since he won the presidency.

You may also believe that a Senator Mitt Romney is the last thing Trump wants in Washington. During the 2016 campaign, Romney gave the speech of his life in denouncing Donald Trump.

In that speech, Romney said Trump’s promises were as worthless as a degree from Trump University, that he is a fraud, and, “he’s playing the American public for suckers: he gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat.” Ouch. And then, Trump went on to win the nomination, ultimately the White House and Mitt Romney asked for one of those hats.

Romney is not one to stick to morals and convictions. In his 2012 campaign for president against Obama, Romney abandoned every position he ever held in his life to appeal to the conservatism of primary voters. He ran against Obamacare despite being an advocate and governor at the time Massachusetts installed a public healthcare plan, which was the foundation of Obamacare. He also sought out Trump’s endorsement and staged a press conference with the guy. It was already well documented that Trump is a liar and a racist having spent the previous few years engaged in a birther campaign against Obama. That didn’t bother Romney. He obviously felt Trump’s endorsement was more valuable than a degree from Trump University.

After Trump and Putin won the election, Romney went to Trump Tower and did the walk of shame through the lobby, so he could pander for the Secretary of State job. Trump never considered Romney for the job and only used it to force him to kiss his feet. The photos Trump released of their frog leg dinner showed Romney with a facial expression one might also wear while having a rusty catheter inserted.

Shortly after Hatch announced his retirement, Romney changed his location on Twitter from Massachusetts to Utah. I half expected the guy to post a photo of him eating green jello with slices of carrots. They really like jello in Utah. It’s weird.

I don’t have faith Romney will join the Resistance against Trump. It seems every Republican who has questioned Trump’s capability has caved into him. Lindsey Graham is running deflections for Trump, attacking the FBI and wanting charges against the author of the Russia Dossier (despite there not being a crime). Jeff Flake voted to give Trump huge tax cuts. Bob Corker is riding on Air Force One at this very moment kissing Trump’s ring. I don’t expect Romney to act any different. Principled Republicans are a thing of the past.

Years ago, Romney forced his dog, Seamus to ride on the roof of his car while he drove halfway across the country. I don’t expect Trump to force Romney to climb on top of his roof. Romney will volunteer.

Stable Genius


cjones01082018

When people think of crooked presidents, they think of Richard Nixon (for now). When they think of philandering presidents, they think of Bill Clinton (who replaced JFK). When they think of insane, mentally unstable, looney toons, mentally deranged, crazy, out-of-his-gourd, off-his-rocker, three-fries-short-of-a-happy-meal, and fucking nutzoid presidents, they’re going to think of Donald Trump.

They won’t think of Donald Trump as insane on the mere fact everyone on the freaking planet thinks he’s mentally unstable, including people who work for him. They’ll think he’s lost his mind because he’s reassuring us he’s mentally stable. In fact, he’s telling us he’s a “stable genius,” that he’s “like a smart person.” If you look at his track record of everything he’s sold us, or assured us (believe me), this too is total and complete horse shit.

It has gone beyond Trump telling us he hasn’t lost his mind and sending surrogates out to tell us there’s enough cheese on his crackers. Even our allies are being asked if he’s nuts.

British Prime Minister Theresa May was asked if Trump was mentally unstable. How often were our allies asked that about Obama, Bush, or Clinton? This is like the question “are you still beating your wife?” Maybe the candidate never even considered smacking his wife around, but once the candidate has to confront the question, that toothpaste isn’t going back in the tube.

It’s bad enough our president is mentally unstable. What compounds the problems are that he’s also stupid, insecure, narcissistic, corrupt, totally uninterested in doing the job he was elected to do, and to top it all off, he’s a grade-A asshole.

A genius would know running a successful reality television show isn’t a qualification for president. Snooki had a reality television show.

We normally compare presidents to presidents. We compare JFK to Lincoln, Reagan to Teddy Roosevelt, and Obama to Jefferson.

We’re comparing Donald Trump to Honey Boo Boo.
