Bob Woodward

Cheshire President


CNN09132020

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

I’ll be honest. I did not know how drawing Trump as a cat would turn out. The designer for the newsletter complimented me on it and I told her I was surprised it turned out as well as it did.

I say I don’t like drawing people as animals or even inanimate objects. I don’t like drawing a face on planets…shit like that. It’s so…Disney. There’s nothing wrong with it. I’m not better than the cartoonists who do it…it’s just not my thing. Then I think…but sometimes it is my thing. I really enjoyed drawing Mike Pence as a worm and I liked the cartoon from the last batch of roughs I posted where Stephen Miller and Rudy Giuliani are flapping bat goon things.

Another thing I had to do with this cartoon was go back and re-familiarize myself with Alice in Wonderland…or if I was ever that familiar with it to begin with. The most I know about Alice in Wonderland is from the video for Tom Petty’s “Don’t Come Around Here No More” and Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit.”

Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s idiot son-in-law who is one of his official advisers with no business being a White House adviser, told Bob Woodward that to understand Trump, read Alice in Wonderland. Kush, being all in on the sycophant thing, thinks that’s actually a great metaphor. As in, it doesn’t matter which path you take if you don’t know where you want to go. But maybe it really is a perfect metaphor more for the Trump supporters.

Trump’s supporters no longer have any ideals, ethics, integrity, or principles. They don’t really care about policy except for white nationalism stuff. Their biggest cause is Trump. The Republican Party is now a cult. So, it doesn’t matter what path you take as long as you take it with Donald Trump.

But don’t worry. That path is the racist path.

The path with Donald Trump is one of an alternate reality. Have you ever heard a Trump cultist defend or support Trump without lying? No, you haven’t.

Churchill, FDR…Trump?


cjones09162020

If you want to be compared to great people, then do great things. If you do that, then other people will compare you to great people and you won’t have to do it yourself.

That’s exactly why Donald Trump has to compare himself to greatness…because nobody else will. At it stands now, some of the most popular nicknames for Trump are Hair Fuhrer, Twitler, and Il Douchey.

After it was revealed Donald Trump intentionally downplayed the coronavirus and continued lying to the public, he defended himself by saying he didn’t want people to panic. Some of his own people, like spokesgoon Kayleigh McEnany, said he didn’t downplay it while he’s on the Woodward recording literally saying he was likes downplaying it and will continue to do so.

Donald Trump is arguing that “downplaying” the dangers of the virus, like telling people it was less dangerous than the flu even though he knew that was a huge and dangerous lie, was real leadership. Why, it was leadership on the scale of Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt during World War II.

Donald Trump made the argument, that he was protecting the public, ironically at a Trump rally which always turns out to be covid parties. Donald Trump will kill you, like he killed Herman Cain, to stay in power.

What Donald Trump is doing is trying to absolve himself of culpability in the death of over 190,000 Americans. Another great leader, President Teddy Roosevelt, said, “The buck stops here.” With Trump, the buck is pushed onto someone else to pay.

Barking at his hate rally like he tends to do, Trump compared himself to the greatness of Churchill and FDR, while lying. The thing is, those two leaders leveled with their people.

Sure, when at war, you don’t tell the public everything, but Americans knew Japan caused huge damage at Pearl Harbor and thousands of sailors were dead. The English knew of the huge retreat at Dunkirk and there was no hiding the Blitz, the German bombing campaign of England.

Comparing himself to Churchill, the barking lunatic said, “We have to be calm. We don’t want to be crazed lunatics. … When Hitler was bombing London, Churchill, a great leader, would oftentimes go to a roof in London and speak. And he always spoke with calmness.”

No. Churchill did observe the bombings from a rooftop at times, but he never gave a speech during them. Hey, can everybody ignore the bombings for a minute and listen to what I have to say? I assure you, it’ll be calm and eloquent. Also, “crazed lunatics?” What sort of lunatics should we be?

If you want a real comparison between Churchill and Twitler, I mean Trump…Churchill went to the rooftops while Nazis were dropping bombs on his city. When there were loud protesters outside the White House, Donald Trump hid in the bunker. Later he said he was only “inspecting” it, which is what a teenage boy says when he gets caught doing you know what in the shower.

In 1940, Churchill told his people, “”We have before us many, many long months of struggle and suffering.” Donald Trump told us the virus would disappear by April and “anyone who needs a test gets a test.” Donald Trump called it a “Democratic hoax.” Donald Trump said it wasn’t worse than the flu. Donald Trump told us kids are “virtually immune.” Donald Trump told us to drink bleach.

Instead of telling us we have “many long months of struggle and suffering,” Trump told us to go shopping, go to church, go to school, and go to political hate rallies.

FDR told us, “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” With pardoned Trump goon Roger Stone saying Donald Trump should declare martial law and arrest all his enemies if he loses the election, the biggest thing we have to fear now is Cheeto Hitler retaining power by any means necessary.

Donald Trump told Bob Woodward he likes dictators more than democratically-elected leaders. That alone should tell you we don’t want Trump to have a second term.

Donald Trump pales in comparison to leaders like Churchill, FDR, Teddy Roosevelt, Lincoln, and even Ronald Reagan. His favorite president, racist murdering Andrew Jackson, tells you all you need to know.

Who you can compare Trump to are people like Hitler, Mussolini, Idi Amin, Kim Jong Un, Saddam Hussein, and Muammar Gaddafi.

Donald Trump is no Churchill. He’s no FDR. If he retains power, he’ll become America’s first dictator.

Correction: It was President Harry Truman who said, “The buck stops here,” not Teddy Roosevelt. I knew that so I don’t know why I mucked it up. Shout-out to Shari for the correction in an email.

MAGAt Love


cjones09142020

For the past two days, a MAGAt has been posting on my YouTube channel that Donald Trump “has the best foreign policy anyone alive has ever seen.” That’s some serious MAGAt love right there.

From Bob Woodward’s new book about Donald Trump, he gives us a look at the “love letters” from Kim Jong Un to Donald Trump. It was Trump who described these as “love letters.” He thinks they’re beautiful. And if you’re wondering how Bob Woodward gained access to these letters, he got them through Donald Trump (who also gave him some national security secrets). Woodward was not allowed to copy the letters so I assume he was able to memorize them. He’s a smart guy.

In one letter, Kim wrote, “I cannot forget that moment of history when I firmly held Your Excellency’s hand at that beautiful and sacred location as the whole world watched with great interest and hope to relive the honor of that day.”

He described their Singapore summit as “reminiscent of a scene from a fantasy film.”

He once wrote, “My regards also to the First Lady and the rest of your family and all your people, and I wish everyone good health and happiness and hope that everyone’s dream will become a beautiful reality.”

And then it gets creepy. “Every minute we shared 103 days ago in Hanoi was also a moment of glory that remains a precious memory.”

He described their relationship as a “deep and special friendship between us will work as a magical force.” Sheesh. Get a room already.

Donald Trump told Bob Woodward that Kim called President Obama an “asshole,” which surely was a way to get on Trump’s good side. He also described to Trump the murder of his uncle by firing squad in graphic detail. For some reason, Kim thought Trump would get off on that. He was probably right. And if I have to read another one of these “love letters,” I may request a firing a squad.

And what have we as a nation gotten out of the Trump/Kim relationship? Well, Kim did return three hostages to us, but then again, President Obama (you know, that “asshole”) got North Korea to release ten hostages. In case you’re a MAGAt, ten is more than three.

We also haven’t engaged in a nuclear war with North Korea thanks to their “deep and special friendship that works as a magical force.” But I just remembered, we never engaged in a nuclear war with North Korea before Trump either.

Donald Trump did get Kim Jong Un to sign a treaty that guarantees…well, nothing actually. It’s a bunch of promises that they’ll maybe possibly consider doing things that we’d like them to do very much eventually. Really.

Donald Trump pulled us from the Iran nuclear treaty which was a lot stronger than the empty one-page treaty he signed with North Korea that promises kinda sorta maybes. Thanks to Trump’s foreign policy, Iran will eventually create a nuclear weapon.

Thanks to Donald Trump’s foreign policy, the climate will become even worse because he pulled us from the Paris Climate Accord. Climate change is actually a greater threat to our nation than stuff like immigration and Antifa. Really.

Donald Trump has coddled dictators and tyrants while disparaging our NATO allies. If he’s reelected, he’ll most likely pull us out of NATO and get a hotel room with Putin.

Donald Trump started a trade war with China which was stupid.

Donald Trump has ignored Vladimir Putin placing bounties on our troops, poisoning dissidents, and attacking our elections…but you can rest easy because he declared Canadian cheese a threat to our national security.

Now that we’ve seen the love letters from Kim Jong Un, I want to see the love letters from Donald Trump. I want to see what he’s written to Kim but more importantly, I want to see the love letters he’s written to Vladimir Putin. If Donald Trump was so desperate to impress Bob Woodward, oh my god what has he told Putin?

After reading them, I’ll probably throw up in my mouth.

Widespread Panic


cjones09132020

Donald Trump’s excuse for lying to the public about the realities of the coronavirus is that he didn’t want to cause a panic. That’s what he told Bob Woodward on the tapes. That’s what Kayleigh McEnany told us yesterday. And that’s what Trump repeated and claimed was leadership. But those of us who live in reality have already been panicking since election night in 2016.

After Bob Woodward’s book “Fear” came out without any cooperation from Donald Trump, he decided to be interviewed for the next one. For “Rage,” Donald Trump gave 18 interviews. He agreed to be recorded. As it turns out, he’d often call Woodward late at night, probably right after he got off the phone with Sean Hannity.

It’s not shocking Donald Trump would lie to us. I even saw that as a defense from one fucknut on social media yesterday. What’s shocking is that Donald Trump totally understood the dangers of the virus, that it was worse than the flu, it was airborne, it was dangerous to children, and that he admitted all of that to Bob Woodward on tape. Yes, Donald Trump agreed to be recorded.

Kayleigh McEnany defended Donald Trump yesterday and argued he never downplayed the virus. The problem here for Ms. McEnany, who swore on her first day on the job as Donald Trump’s spokesgoon that she’d never lie to us, is that on the recording, Donald Trump says he’s “downplaying” it and he likes “downplaying” it.

OK. Let’s accept that for a second. He didn’t want to cause a panic. That makes it sound as if he was genuinely concerned for the public’s safety…even though he acted irresponsibly. But, if he had the public’s safety in mind, then why did he continue to hold Trump rallies? Trump held five rallies after his confession to Woodward that the virus was more dangerous than the flu. He put thousands of lives at risk. His friend, Herman Cain died after a rally. Donald Trump continues to politicize and mock people for wearing face masks. He pushed states to reopen. He screamed for people to pack churches. He campaigned to put kids back in schools. He continued to describe it as the flu. Donald Trump disregarded your and your family’s safety.

Donald Trump didn’t just keep information to himself. He lied about it. He claimed it was the “Democrats new hoax.” He said it’d disappear by April. He said, “Everyone who needs a test, gets a test.”

We knew how dangerous the virus was. Donald Trump didn’t know anything we didn’t know already. But, his lying about it fed his base bullshit. His base doesn’t listen to facts. They only listen to Trump. If Donald Trump had acted more swiftly in March to shut down factories, schools, and stopped conducting rallies…and maybe had told his people to wear face masks instead of tweeting out, “Liberate Michigan,” it would have saved thousands of lives.

From calling service members “losers and suckers,” to disclosures that intelligence on Russian meddling was withheld to save him from embarrassment, to withholding information on a virus and costing more lives, each day contains more revelations that Donald Trump is the worst president in American history.

Woodward’s new book also reveals people closest to Donald Trump believe he’s a disaster. Former Defense Secretary James Mattis called Trump “dangerous” and “unfit.” Dan Coats, former director of national intelligence, wanted to take “collective action” and speak out publicly against Trump. Coats also said Trump “doesn’t know the difference between the truth and a lie” and believed the Russians had something on Trump.

Dr. Anthony Fauci told Woodward Trump’s attention span is like a “minus number.”

Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner told people the book “Alice in Wonderland” can help them understand the Trump presidency, and described him as the Cheshire Cat. This was Kushner speaking positively about Trump.

Also in the book, Trump said, “My fucking generals are a bunch of pussies” who care more about military alliances than trade deals. He also rejected having any white privilege and accused Woodward of “drinking the Kool-Aid” for believing in systemic racism.

Yesterday, I saw a post from a Trump supporter attempting to defend the revelations that Trump was lying about the virus. He, trying to be clever, “marked himself safe from Donald Trump not creating a panic.” I like he used that because it shows what Trump conservatives find humorous and clever. But it was a huge fail at being clever as it also shows how obtuse and stupid Trumplicans are because there’s over 190,000 who can’t “mark themselves safe” from the Donald Trump presidency.

What Donald Trump did was irresponsible, negligent, careless, and criminal. He betrayed the American people. Protecting the American people is job number one for a president. Donald Trump failed. Donald Trump only protects Donald Trump.

Donald Trump doesn’t care about creating a panic except when he cares enough to create a panic. He’s been fear mongering since 2015. He runs on panic. Panic is all he has.

If you really want to avoid creating a panic, then don’t put a stupid racist narcissistic reality TV show host into the White House.

Woodward Strikes Again


cjones09122020

What’s more shocking? That Donald Trump withheld that he understood fully well just how dangerous the conoravirus was while he was playing it down to the rest of the nation…or that Donald Trump understood something fully well?

This is a bonus cartoon and more information is coming out about this. I want to learn more, and wait for more reactions, before I write a lot about it. I owe you a blog on this.

Fear Woodward


cjones09082018

In 1991, I met editorial cartoonist Draper Hill at my first cartoonist convention, and he drew me a doodle of Richard Nixon. Next to that drawing, he wrote something like, “too bad you won’t ever have the likes of me to cover.” So, basically, this is all Draper’s fault. He jinxed us with that drawing.

Draper, who passed away in 2009, loved drawing Nixon. I saw him draw for a few other people over the years and I think each drawing was Nixon. He couldn’t get over Nixon. Will I be like Draper in the future, continuing to draw Donald Trump? Will I get over Trump? It didn’t occur to me to ask Draper if he ever got tired of drawing Nixon, because I’m really tired of drawing Trump.

Draper was wrong except my son of a bitch to cover may actually be worse than Nixon. On the day The Washington Post published excerpts of Bob Woodward’s new book, we overlooked the fact that Trump is screaming at his Justice Department for indicting two Republicans close to an election. Any day now, Trump is going to tweet, “I am corrupt. Suck it, America!”

Bob Woodward is famous for covering Watergate for The Washington Post, reporting that brought down the Nixon administration. He used anonymous sources back then too, most famously, Deep Throat. Now, Trump and his sycophants are basically accusing Woodward of creating quotes, as though it’s something he’s been getting away with for five decades.

Like other books about Trump, this one paints a White House in constant chaos. Unlike other books covering Trump, this author has impeccable credibility. You could ask Nixon about that if he wasn’t dead. Reading the excerpts of “Fear,” the title of the book, it sounds less like a functioning branch of the government and more like a script for the entire season of The Simpsons, back in season seven when it was funny. It describes a White House having a nervous breakdown.

There are details of aides removing papers from Trump’s desk, so he couldn’t sign them. There’s a part in the book of his ordering a hit on the leader of Syria (which is another example of his directing someone else to break the law). He questions why we have troops in South Korea.

After the meeting about South Korea, Defense Secretary James Mattis reportedly told associates that Trump had the understanding of a fifth or sixth grader. Mattis now says he never said such a thing, or would he ever about the president. But, he probably owes an apology to fifth and sixth graders.

Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly told colleagues that Trump is an “idiot,” and “We’re in Crazytown. I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had.” Donald Trump now has the most denials of any president that his staff has called him names like “idiot” or “fucking moron.” Also, Crazytown is less fun than Funkytown.

Trump called Attorney General Jeff Sessions a “traitor” for recusing himself from the investigation and said, “This guy is mentally retarded. He’s this dumb Southerner. . . . He couldn’t even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama.” Trump has denied this statement, but it’s hard not to believe if you follow Trump’s attacks on Sessions through his Twitter account. But, leave it to Trump to insult Southerners and the mentally ill in one fell swoop.

After saying there were good people and blame on “both sides” in the Charlottesville racist rally which killed one person, Trump was pressured to criticize white supremacists. Afterward, he said, “That was the biggest fucking mistake I’ve made” and the “worst speech I’ve ever given.” Let that sink in. For Trump, it was a mistake to criticize, even subtly, Nazis.

Former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus described the staff with, “When you put a snake and a rat and a falcon and a rabbit and a shark and a seal in a zoo without walls, things start getting nasty and bloody.” This White House isn’t very good with metaphors. Ask former spokesgoon Sean Spicer who came up with, “a unicorn riding a unicorn over a rainbow” to describe Trump.

Perhaps most interesting are the details of Trump practicing with his attorneys to testify before Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Trump reportedly got upset and said, “This thing’s a goddamn hoax. I don’t really want to testify.”

Later, Trump’s personal attorney John Dowd, who resigned shortly after, told Mueller, “I’m not going to sit there and let him look like an idiot. And you publish that transcript, because everything leaks in Washington, and the guys overseas are going to say, ‘I told you he was an idiot. I told you he was a goddamn dumbbell. What are we dealing with this idiot for?'” Dowd basically told Mueller that Trump can’t testify without committing perjury.

Later, Dowd told Trump, “Don’t testify. It’s either that or an orange jumpsuit,” which is something lawyers don’t usually say to innocent clients. Trump said “I’ll be a real good witness,” to which Dowd replied, “You are not a good witness. I’m afraid I just can’t help you.” The next morning, Dowd resigned. He’s not a good president either.

There is a familiar pattern in every book about Donald Trump, and I don’t think you can say Bob Woodward’s equivalent as a reporter, chronicler of events, and historian is Omarosa. But it’s clear that nobody can walk out of that White House without wearing a horrified expression as if they’d seen a headless ghost chopping up babies and puppies. We have a president who needs babysitters who are very good at distracting.

Let’s hope they can keep distracting, can keep him on the golf course, and can keep sneaking papers off his desk, so we don’t end up declaring war on Narnia. I can think of one good distraction that can work out for the entire nation.

Let Trump testify and give that orange jumpsuit theory a ride.

Trump Train


cjones06182016

After Trump insinuated that Obama was sympathetic toward terrorists (wink wink, nudge nudge), The Washington Post published a story on his comments. Trump reacted by banning the Post from covering his events. He claimed they were taking his words out of context and that he never would insinuate that Obama would be behind such a horrible attack. Then he doubled down on his comments and tweeted out a Breitbart story about how Obama is an ISIS sympathizer. He’s also given press credentials to Infowars which is a conspiracy site.

It’s kinda telling that Trump hates The Washington Post but loves Breitbart. Trump hates journalists but Breitbart is OK because they’re not real journalists. They’re like news chlamydia. There’s a cure for it, but if you caught it once then you’re probably gonna go back and catch it again. Trump has a thing about bashing reporters. He claims the New York Times is a failing newspaper while touting the fine reporting of The National Enquirer. He blasts The Washington Post. He was a huge fan of the show Morning Joe which tells you a lot about that show (though I don’t think he likes them anymore). He even feuded with Fox News and Megyn Kelly. Then he makes up, feuds again, makes up, feuds again, etc.

Trump has banned nine media outlets from his events. NINE! In addition to The Post they include, National Review, Politico, The Des Moines Register, The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, The Daily Beast, Univision, and Gawker for running an investigation on his hair. He’s banned specific reporters from Mother Jones, Fusion, and The New York Times. He’s taken credit for the Union Leader in New Hampshire being dropped from a debate.

Trump is now talking about having his own network, much like Sarah Palin attempted a while back (which fizzled and burned out). If Trump actually wants a media empire then he better quit the race and start now. After he loses to Hillary Clinton in November his brand won’t be as marketable. He’ll be a loser like he accuses Romney of being, though Trump won’t carry as many states as Romney did in 2012.

Back to the Post: Editor Bob Woodward, who is no journalistic slouch, has unleashed 20 reporters to dig into Trump’s background to find stuff we don’t know yet. He’s doing the same on Hillary Clinton (though I doubt there’s anything new there after almost 30 years of being in the spotlight).

Bob Woodward was half the team that broke the Watergate story. If Trump is actually elected president I’m sure he looks forward to the story that will lead to his impeachment.

It seems the only correct way to cover a Trump event is not to report what he actually says. He doesn’t like that.

Creative note: When I got this idea I told myself to think of another idea. I really liked this idea but I’m not a big fan of drawing trains. Some cartoonists hate drawing crowds. I don’t like trains. Bicycles suck too.
