Lying Youngkin


cjones10282021

I apologize for being late with today’s blog. I finished this cartoon and got it on social media right before I had to get on a train. I could have tried to write it on the train, but Amtrak’s internet is so bad that you save yourself a lot of frustration by not using it. After I got to my hotel, I had to wait on a repair dude to fix my TV before I could start on the blog.

I covered this is a few days ago. Glenn Youngkin is lying. He learned it from Donald Trump. The bigger the lie a Republican tells, the more other Republicans will believe it. Whether it’s trickle-down works, Trump won, Jewish space lasers, January 6 was a protest, or Terry McAuliffe has the FBI going after parents who speak at school board meetings in opposition of Critical Race Theory, vaccines, or Critical Race Theory which isn’t being taught in Virginia schools.

Youngkin has lied in his campaign commercials that the FBI is targeting parents. Then, he went on two different radio shows and said his opponent, former governor Terry McAuliffe, has called President Biden to ask him to get the Justice Department to go after parents. Why would he do that?

Usually, a lie like that is taken from something else and twisted into a lie. This time, it pretty much comes from nothing except out of Glenn Youngkin’s ass. I’m afraid if he wins, we’ll find out what else is up there. We’ll also also find out just how deep he is up Trump’s ass.

It has only been suggested that the FBI look into threats made by parents against school board members. That’s it. Nothing has happened yet. Glenn Youngkin and other Republicans are defending bullying parents who want a twisted education in an unhealthy environment who are making death threats against teachers.

People are actually buying this too. They’re outraged over Democrats and the FBI going after parents which isn’t happening when they should be outraged that Republicans are still defending terrorists.

Virginia, we don’t like Trump. Don’t let Youngkin fool you into making a Trumper our governor.

And no, it’s not too soon to use Alex Baldwin in a cartoon like this. What is too soon is to be calling him a murderer, which is what a lot of Trump supporters are doing. The thing is, morons, you can’t send someone to prison because you don’t like their politics or you’re still upset he came close to making your racist gameshow host joke of a president look nearly as stupid as he actually is. Also, you don’t know all the details, but it’s not the first time you talked out of your ass.

At the very least, you’re using someone’s death for your political grudge.

I don’t like Republicans, or at least not the ones who have lost all their humanity. There are not enough Liz Cheneys, Adam Kinzingers, or Oliva Troyes left.

Nukes And Baldwins


cjones03062018

Donald Trump had a horrible week. Pundits are calling it the week of chaos.

Hope Hicks resigned as White House Communications Director (Trump’s fourth) after testifying before Congress when she said that she’s told “white lies” for Trump in the past. I’m not sure how the White House can replace someone with the judgement to date a married Corey Lewandowski and wife-beating Rob Porter, and to work for Donald Trump. Over 50 people have left jobs in Trump’s White House.

White House Adviser and Trump son-in-law, Jared Kushner lost his security clearance. As it’s been pointed out, the White House calligrapher has a higher security clearance than Jared. To make matters worse, it was revealed this week that Jared accepted over $500 million in loans from corporations he had meetings within the White House. In addition to that shit storm, it came to light that the nation of Qatar and U.S. ally rejected giving Jared a loan, shortly before the United States accused them of supporting terrorism and initiated a blockade of that country, where over 10,000 U.S. troops are stationed.

Jared has been trying to get someone to bail out his purchase of a building on 5th Avenue with the address 666.  Who knew that other than the Trump White House, there’s a second Trump circle of Hell?

To make matters worse for Jared, Robert Mueller is looking into his financial fuckery. I’m not sure if Jared is familiar with Mueller, but someone should tell him that he’s serious. Mueller is also inquiring as to if Trump knew about the Russian hacks into the Democrats email before the knowledge became public.

Mueller is also looking into a shady business deal of Ivanka’s. The Trump crime family may occupy an entire wing of a federal prison if this keeps up.

According to sources, Trump is trying to pressure Jared and Ivanka to quit. Trump is probably that source. Unfortunately for Trump, no one in this White House reads the Times or the Post, so they probably won’t get that hint. But, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, one of the few adults in the White House, is apparently ready to bail and Gary Cohn, Trump’s Economic Adviser who almost quit during Nazi week may be ready to go with him.

Trump said he’d raise the age to purchase an AR-15 and that he’d like to seize weapons from some people and worry about due process later. I just love that the president who is actually stating he wants to grab guns is the one Republican idiots voted for.

Trump will probably backtrack on both of those statements, but he did say he’s not afraid of the NRA. He said that between lunch with the NRA and dinner with the NRA.

Trump also promised to raise tariffs on steel and aluminum which is great for U.S. steel companies, but bad for companies that purchase steel. It’s also bad if you’re a beer drinker. He’s taking your guns, and he’s jacking the price on beer. Good job, Republicans.

Trump’s goal with a trade war, which he says is a good thing, is to hit China. Who he’s actually hitting is Canada, and they’ve vowing to hit back. Nobody was expecting this trade war, including Cohn who has voiced what a terrible idea it is.

Because they can’t stop leaking, other White House sources, or the same ones as before, who knows, said Trump started the trade war because he’s in a bad mood. Is he going to bomb Jamaica if he gets a hemorrhoid?

He attacked his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. Again. He has privately referred to Sessions as Mr. Magoo.

Chief of Staff John Kelly made jokes at a Homeland Security function that God was punishing him by making him take the White House job. He’s punishing all of us, John. Kelly also defended his handling of wife-beating Rob Porter, saying he thought the abuse was just emotional, not physical. John Kelly lies a lot.

Ben Carson, who has less business being the HUD Secretary than Jared and Ivanka have in the White House, spent over $31,000 of taxpayer money on a dining room set for his office. Even the quiet ones in this administration are corrupt.

Realizing that things were getting heavy, Trump told a joke to lighten the mood. He said that he would have run into the school in Parkland, even if he didn’t have a weapon. We all needed the laugh…what? He was serious?

To top it all off, Vladimir Putin claimed he has a new “invincible” missile. He showed off a computer graphic of it striking Florida, near the location of Mar-a-Lago. To be honest, if it wasn’t a nuclear missile and just your average everyday bunker-busting missile, we’d probably be OK with it.

With all these serious issues occurring, Trump had to lash out, and he did….at Alec Baldwin. Seriously.

Trump may not be afraid of the NRA, but he’s afraid of Putin. Maybe the NRA should find a pee tape of him.

Trump finds the acting skills of a Baldwin more menacing to the United States than Putin’s threat of a new cold war. I could maybe understand if he was attacking Daniel Baldwin, the Eric Trump of Baldwins. Go rent Sharks in Venice. But, no. He was attacking the talented one.

He couldn’t even do that right. He tweeted his attack on “Alex” Baldwin, whose career was “dieing” before he started impersonating Trump.

All things considered, I don’t think this week was anymore chaotic than a typical Trump week. Sure, it was bad, but I think it’d have to get a lot worse to beat defending Nazis and endorsing pedophiles, or that first week when Trump became President.

I’m still having nightmares about that one.

Here’s the video.

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. 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.
