Crazy Uncle

Crazy Uncle Time

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

I drew this cartoon before Sidney Powell was fired as Trump’s lawyer…from which they claim she was never his lawyer…or the campaign’s lawyer. Honestly, I’m surprised they haven’t retreaded the coffee fetcher line yet. Yet.

There’s a LOT of speculation which crazy shit she said that got her ditched by the crazy folks. This is like the team of Misfit Toys…if the Misfit Toys were stupid and racist. I mean, dear God, Rudy is still a part of the team. This guy sweats oil during press conferences…and conducts them next to dildo shops. So, what did poor crazy lunatic Sidney say that got her shitcanned? Good question and let’s explore.

Rudy has pushed debunked conspiracy theory after debunked conspiracy theory yet, he remains on the team that now says Sidney Powell was never a part of it or ever a legal representative for Donald Trump. You know the team that Donald Trump said included Sidney Powell. The team that Rudy said he was leading with Sidney Powell. The team that held a press conference last week that gave Sidney Powell speaking time at the podium with Rudy standing and sweating black goop behind her. So what’d Sidney say that got her ditched?

Was it her claim that Donald Trump won the election in a “landslide?” As preposterous and ludicrous as that claim is, no. That didn’t get her fired. Donald Trump liked that claim.

Was it her claim that George Soros was a part of the group stealing the election? Nah. Donald Trump has claimed George Soros was funding immigrant caravans even as he said he didn’t have any proof. He wouldn’t care about Sidney blaming Soros. Also, Soros is Jewish. Unless they’re Jared or Israel, Trump doesn’t like Jews.

Was it her claim the election was being stolen by globalists? Of course not. Donald Trump is anti-Semitic. See paragraph above. He retweets Nazis and once tweeted an image of bags of cash and a bunch of Stars of David.

Was it the crazy shit that the Clinton Foundation was stealing the election from Trump? No. Donald Trump has spouted his own lies about the Clintons and their foundation…while he was stealing from his foundation.

Was it the claim the deceased Hugo Chavez designed the voting systems and it’s all a communist plot from nations like Venezuela, Cuba, and China (but not communist North Korea)? No. It’s just another crazy conspiracy theory. Rudy has those. Trump began his political career with dumber ones.

Was it her claim that voting machines changed votes from Trump into votes for Biden? Nope. Rudy has made that same claim…and so has Trump.

Was it her claim that Brian Kemp, the governor of Georgia and a long-time Trump supporter helped steal the election for Joe Biden? Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!

The thing is, Kemp is a Trump supporter. A very loyal Trump supporter. If anything, he’s worked diligently to disenfranchise black voters in Georgia to help Republicans. He’s on Trump’s side. And, there are two Senate runoffs in January in Georgia. A lot of Republicans are already pissed at the GOP establishment because the Georgia secretary of state, a Republican, did his job and counted more votes for Joe Biden than for Trump. Some Republicans are actually threatening to boycott the election after Georgia went blue for Biden. I just like typing that. Georgia went blue for Biden. I’m done.

The other thing is, Sidney was being criticized by Republicans. Chris Christie and Iowa Senator Joni Ernst went after her. Republicans aren’t going after Rudy which you think they would.

Finally, Tucker Carlson went after her…and she went after him. Tucker is another MAGAt. She said Tucker was rude. She might as well had left a bag of burning turds on Sean Hannity’s doorstep…which is probably a common thing, so she’d have to write her name on the bag.

She wasn’t ditched for being ridiculous. This president (sic) hires ridiculous people to be his spokesgoons (Spicer, Huckasans, McEnany). Rudy is ridiculous except Rudy has been a Trump friend for decades and has pissed away his legacy and reputation for Trump. Also, Rudy’s not a woman. He has a penis. If you don’t believe me, ask his cousinwife.

Goodbye, Sidney. Thank you for lasting long enough for me to get a couple cartoons out of you. Let me know if you’ll be back. I have a lot of ink for crazy nut cases like you, you fun lunatic.

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.

Crazy Uncle

Sometimes the crazy uncle isn’t living in an attic wearing a tin foil hat.

But they’re out there listening to Rush, watching Fox News, and believing Obama is coming for their guns and he’ll destroy the Constitution to serve a third term. They consider themselves Patriots and they support our troops while wanting militia members to shoot them if they cross the Texas state border. They support the police, unless the police try to remove a racist from letting his cattle graze on federal land. They believe there should be drug testing for those on welfare, while probably being on welfare themselves. They still believe there were WMDs in Iraq and we found them but the media is keeping it a secret. They believe Hillary Clinton ordered the attack on Benghazi. They know deep in their hearts that the president is a foreign-born-Communist Muslim and that he supports terrorists and has a secret agenda to destroy the United States. They will tell you all about Obama’s “apology tour” where he’s apologized for the United States and doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism. They talk about Michelle Obama’s trillion dollar costs to the taxpayers vacations. They swear gay marriage will destroy the sanctity of marriage and they know this because thrice-married Rush Limbaugh told them so. Cops never profile African Americans. Illegal aliens are voting (for Democrats) and using up social services. Don’t get them started on how Obama stole the presidency.

That’s who Republicans want to moderate their debate.

I understand none of the candidates are as tough or has the endurance of Hillary Clinton who can tackle partisan, nasty questions for 11 hours. Two hours of being asked to explain a tax policy is difficult for the GOP. I also understand if they find Anderson Cooper more intimidating than Vladimir Putin.

It does boggle my mind that someone trying to convince us he’s not a total crazy person and should be president says future moderators should prove they’ve voted Republican. Who do these people want asking them questions? Their moms?

So anyway, go scream up at the attic and see if your uncle can fit it into his schedule.

I was going to draw a cartoon on another subject. Then I got this idea and I was going to wait a day to draw it. The more I thought about it the more I wanted to go ahead and do this idea. I sketched it out more than once as I had a very difficult time with the angle. After being happy with a rough version I tackled it on the good paper and I had to erase about 15 times.

Here’s the rough.
