Conspiracy Theories.

Crazy Uncle


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

When I threw this idea at my editor, I didn’t know Mary Trump had actually spoken up that Donald Trump was truly someone’s “crazy uncle.” Or maybe she hadn’t done that before I wrote this cartoon. I don’t know. I found out when I had my proofreader read this, and she told me.

Moderator of the Trump town hall, Savannah Guthrie, asked Donald Trump why he kept retweeting insane conspiracy theories. She pointed out that Donald Trump is the president (sic) of the United States. Not someone’s crazy uncle.

Donald Trump is a crazy uncle. Mary Trump does not have a choice in that. We can’t choose our families. All we can do is to choose to avoid toxic people, even when they’re our family.

Mary Trump does not have a choice in Donald Trump being her crazy uncle. She’s stuck with him. But we’re not.

We all get to choose whether we have crazy Donald Trump as a part of our lives. Quite frankly, I don’t need a crazy uncle. I have enough insane people in my family, thank you.

Mary, you’re stuck with him but I chose to ditch this crazy uncle (I already voted). I’m looking forward to the rest of the country doing the same.

Tip Jar: This pandemic is hitting everyone, including your favorite goofy cartoonist. I have lost clients and I’m afraid I might lose more. The PayPal button has always been included here for those who can and want to voluntarily support what I do. I understand this time is hard on everyone. If you can’t, don’t contribute. Take care of yourself and your family first. But, all and any help is greatly appreciated and it helps keep me going. Think of me like a street performer busking out tunes on a corner (I won’t play “Wonderwall.” I promise). If you like the tune, or in this case, toon, throw a buck into the tip jar. It’ll help me play another song, draw another toon, write another blog, make another video, and post another snarky post on social media. It’ll help keep me alive. You can also order a signed print for $40. And if you don’t like the PayPal option, you can snail mail it to my P.O. Box.

You can purchase a signed print of this cartoon.
