Dershowitz

Roughing It, Volume 31


Kids! It’s time for another walk through my butcher shop and see how the meat’s made. Be careful as it can get nasty. Watch where you step.

I sent this idea to CNN and my editor really liked it. My editor’s only question was, “where are those two guys on the lower right?” It was a good question. I moved them, added a golf club and a cheeseburger, made the city Washington, and it came out like…

…this.

I told you to watch where you step. This was actually much nastier in my head. Who am I kidding? All my ideas are nastier in my head. Right now, Donald Trump and John Bolton are making out in there. Now it’s in your head too. Hope you weren’t eating.

CNNrough569I actually drew this rough months ago, and it was overtaken by other aspects of the impeachment issues. Then it came back to me and I roughed it out again because I didn’t feel like scrolling through all my files. There are nearly 600 roughs in that folder. But it turned out like…

…this. Both versions had golf clubs and cheeseburgers.

CNNrough568

This one didn’t turn into anything.

CNNrough567

Damn Jay Sekulow.

CNNrough565

I drew this before that clusterfuck of a State of the Union.

CNNrough564

If you’ve been to this website before, you know I like the word “goon.” It’s so accurate.

CNNrough563

I kinda like this one.

CNNrough562

I roughed this out several times and intended to make a cartoon out of it. But it was so hard that I gave up. I figured it wasn’t good enough to put that much work into it. Then, someone else did something very close.

CNNrough561

And then, I saw this turn into a Facebook meme. Goddammit!

CNNrough559

I didn’t do this one because I thought there’s been enough Nixon lately.

CNNrough557

This is the argument.

CNNrough556

This one’s turning true.

CNNrough560

I was going to put all their conspiracy theories and various bullshit stances on their shirts, and I forgot. Don Lemon explained he was making fun of Trump and not his supporters. For the record, yes. I’m making fun of all you Trump supporters. I think you’re all a bunch of lying, treasonous, traitorous, racist, sexist, stupid, conspiracy-loving, cult-worshipping deplorable assholes.

I told you to watch where you step because it was going to get nasty. I hope you weren’t eating.

Leaping For Dershowitz


CNN02022020

Here’s your cartoon for CNN’s weekly newsletter, Provoke/Persuade. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday for the rest of your life.

How can you say you’re a liberal Democrat after looking at the Constitution and believing it allows an American president to be an authoritarian? That is the argument constitutional lawyer Alan Dershowitz is implementing to defend Donald Trump against impeachment.

You can argue that Dershowitz is a great lawyer, but you’d expect that in delivering an argument on something so momentous, like against impeaching a president, that he’d prepare something that wouldn’t need explaining later on cable news shows.

Honestly, Dershowitz. Am I to take you seriously or should I just take you as a camera whore? I mean, you can’t argue for your legitimacy because a president hired you, because this president is Donald Trump. One of the other lawyers arguing against impeaching Donald Trump was caught in a bribery scheme with him years ago, another has been fingered as being one of the participants in the case he’s defending, and the other is Ken Starr. And then there’s you. Alan Dershowitz. Defender of O.J, Epstein, Weinstein, and publicly stated would defend Adolph Hitler. If there was a camera involved, I’m sure you would have. Oh, sure…six million Jews murdered in the gas chambers, but is the camera catching my good side?

You, Mr. Dershowitz, are a Harvard professor of Constitutional law. But what you should be lecturing on, is how to be a whore. My apologies to whores everywhere for the analogy. Whores have more scruples.

Dershowitz argued against Bill Clinton’s impeachment saying a president has to commit a crime to be impeached. Now, for Trump, he argues a crime has to be committed and even if it is, the president should be able to get away with it if he believes it’s in the national interest.

Dershowitz isn’t arguing for what he believes is right. He’s arguing for cameras. What will he believe in a decade from now when another president is facing impeaching? Let’s just hope that president isn’t once again, Donald Trump. But if it is, he’s going to need some skeezy lawyers.
