With Donald Trump in the presidency, the world doesn’t have a high opinion of the United States right now. For example, the nation that helped defeat the Nazis is now a safe haven for Nazis. While the majority of this nation has rejected Donald Trump twice in two national elections, there were still too many people in this nation who thought it was a great idea to install an ignorant, stupid, racist, sexist, alt-right loving, insecure, narcissistic gameshow host into the presidency. Now, we have people refusing to vaccinate their kids out of fear of the side effects, while ignoring the side of effect of not vaccinating which is dying.

While we hope the world knows the majority of us don’t approve of this new movement in stupid, it doesn’t help when anti-vaxxers from our shores share their diseases internationally.

Costa Rican Bagman

This cartoon was first published, March 22, 2019, in The Costa Rica Star.

Failed presidential candidate, religious fundamentalists, spouse of freaky tongue speaker, and all around homophobe Fabricio Alvarado’s campaign has been accused of taking campaign donations…in the form of bags of cash.

According to witnesses, in a house of a collaborator, people would bring bags of cash, always in dollars, in bundles of $1,000, and in black plastic bags. It’s believed the total is over $96,000. It sounds like a bad episode of Miami Vice…or a weekend on the Trump campaign.

Will The Real Ambassador Please Stand Up?


crsta02222019

This cartoon was first published on February 22, 2019, in The Costa Rica Star.

Costa Rica is just one of the many nations refusing to recognize Nicolas Maduro as the president of Venezuela, and instead recognizes his opponent, Juan Guaido. As Costa Rica gave Maduro’s ambassador to that nation 60 days to vacate, Guaido’s ambassador went ahead and moved in. No one is sure how she got the keys.

Costa Rica’s government was annoyed by this as they wanted the new ambassador, Maria Faria. The Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying, “For the government of Costa Rica, such a procedure is unacceptable because it damages basic diplomatic norms of respect and trust in relations in the international community, and above all, in international law.”

Maduro’s Foreign Minister issued their own statement in a tweet, which was a bit juicier. It said, “What thieves, this morning a group of strangers entered the headquarters of the Venezuelan embassy in Costa Rica. The government of that country must enforce the Diplomatic Relations Convention and guarantee the operation and safety of our personnel and facilities.”

Creative notes: I couldn’t remember the name of the game show I wanted to use in this cartoon, but did recall it was used at the beginning of the film, “Catch Me If You Can.” So, I had to Google that. I have never been much of a fan of game shows.

Update: There was a typo in this cartoon that went unnoticed by me and my editors for over a week. Someone with an eagle eye on Twitter spotted it. Ugh.
