Hillary For Prison

Hillary’s House Of Lies


cjones08032016

I wouldn’t say Hillary Clinton is a liar. But I would say she’s not entirely truthful. She, like her husband, has a penchant for using legalese to get around the truth. Remember the “definition of is” speech? People don’t like lawyers as it is.

When she gave an interview to Chris Wallace and claimed FBI director James Comey said her answers about her emails were “truthful,” I thought to myself, why would she say such a whopper of a lie? This doesn’t help her with the trust issue most Americans have with her, whether that’s valid or not.

But why shouldn’t she lie and get away with it? Donald Trump does it on a daily basis. Seriously, he lies daily. His recent lies include his claim the NFL sent him a letter upset over the debate schedule…which, of course, is a lie.

Hillary just needs to create a new distraction for each flub that’ll redirect the media and public’s attention to the newest scandal. In the midst of Trump’s scandal of his feud with parents whose children died in combat he decided to kick a baby out of one of his rallies. Maybe Hillary could kick a puppy.

What’s kind of a bigger issue about Hillary’s FBI lie is that Trump wasn’t able to capitalize on it. He’s always accusing her of being a liar so when she actually does it, it’s not new for him to claim she’s “crooked Hillary.” Also, Trump and his campaign wasted the week’s message on making excuses for Trump.

Hillary could have dodged the question and it wouldn’t have been news. Shady, like all politicians do, but it wouldn’t have made any waves. Just wait for Donald Trump to log into Twitter and there will be something new.

All Hillary has to do is not lie. She’s the better candidate. She’s qualified for the job and her opponent is a Cheeto. She’s coming off a great convention and has a nine-point-bounce. Trump is fighting parents who lost their children, veteran organizations, fire marshals and babies.

She’s got this. Stop lying.

Make America Fear Again


cjones07212016

I’m going to be drawing a LOT of cartoons this week. Maybe I’ll take a day off in August or September…or after the election.

When I was a kid and up to being a young adult, I always thought political parties had the same goal of wanting what’s best for our country while disagreeing about the best ways to do it. They’d go so far as to call the other side extreme or out of touch.

Today they label each other as enemies. It’s not just the Republicans but to be fair to the Democrats, they’ve had eight years of blind rage, lies, and racism directed toward President Obama (birthers, questioning his religion, gazillion dollar tax payer funded vacations, etc), and countless investigations to destroy Hillary Clinton.

Today the Republican nominee for president says there’s something going on with the current president regarding violence toward police and terrorism. He’s accused Obama of being born in Kenya. He calls his opponent a liar and a crook.

The theme for the first night of the Republican convention was “Make America Safe Again.” It was more like making America paranoid. They went beyond describing the nation as currently unsafe, and that the president has failed, doesn’t understand, and their opponent is dangerous. They accused Hillary Clinton of murder and said she belongs in prison.

So yeah. I’m going to be drawing a lot of cartoons this week.
