Dump Trump

Obama’s Fault


cjones03112016

I covered this topic last August. Here, take a look at the cartoon. Last August. At what point do trump supporters stop beating up protesters, specifically minorities, at his rallies?

What’s even worse, the latest incident in Fayetteville, North Carolina is even more horrible because the man assaulted was the one taken down by police. The man who assaulted him, who moved over several feet to sucker punch the kid, in front of the police, wasn’t bothered. He has since been charged.

Trump’s campaign says they’re not responsible. Despite Trump stating how he’d like to punch protesters and that he’d pay legal defenses for anyone who does.

Trump’s spokespeople say it happens at other rallies. I’m sure there’s a lot of passion at all of the political rallies…except for Marco’s. I know there’s some pushing and shoving at Hillary’s events. Maybe some toes stepped on at Sanders’. A bible or two gets aggressively thumped at a Cruz hootinanny. But you don’t see Bernie Sanders telling his people to steal the protesters’ jackets in Burlington in January and then kick them outside to freeze.

And yet we keep hearing how this is Obama’s fault. That the president is so divisive and the GOP Congress couldn’t work with him and his tone and tenure created the atmosphere that allowed the likes of Donald Trump to destroy the Republican party and make it look like our nation is failing a massive IQ test. Of course the snapperheads who believe that also once thought Sarah Palin was presidential material. And that numb nuts they made their last nominee who recently said Trump would be a disaster for this country? Yeah, that guy. He practically threw a ticker-tape parade for the Trump’s endorsement in 2012.

But seriously? The Tea Party? The promise of a Congress to make the president a one-termer? Birtherism? Questioning his religion? Screaming “you lie” during the state of the union? None of that paved the road for this? Republicans have blamed Obama for a lot, but stating he is the one who destroyed their party is just insane.

They did that all on their own….unless it’s Obama’s fault they don’t like black presidents.

An intelligent Debate?

I watched the Democratic Debate last night. The candidates didn’t create nicknames for each other. No one was called a “liar.” There was talk about the Flint water crisis, student debt, trade, bailouts, the auto industry. There wasn’t a penis reference. There wasn’t a booger. It was so boring.

The lowest jab might have been when Sanders referenced the Republican debate as proof that we need to do more for mental health.

In comparison nobody comes off looking presidential, or even as an adult, at the Republican debates. There’s no maturity or intellectualism, which of course are bad things in GOP Land. The Republicans actually lauded Michigan governor Rick Snyder a hero in the Flint water crisis. What?

Even though I could watch ten more Republican debates because they’re so entertaining, I think we’ve had enough for this cycle. If you don’t know where the candidates stand by this point then you’re an idiot. I’m not saying you should have your mind made up, as I’m not entirely decided either. But I know where the candidates stand.

I usually avoid drawing cartoons of people watching television. I’ve drawn way too many of those in years past. But sometimes it’s unavoidable because watching TV is what people do. And it’s hard to avoid it when the topic is the content your kids are watching.
