Impeachment

Censure Culture


cjones02182021

Republicans must think they have a free pass with hypocrisy.

During the Obama years, they complained about him issuing executive orders and claimed he was using them trying to be a monarch. They championed Donald Trump’s executive orders and added them to his list of accomplishments. President Obama issued 276 executive orders to Donald Trump’s 220. In case you are a Republican, let me remind you that President Obama served two terms and Donald Trump only one because he lost his reelection to President Joe Biden. In case you’re a Republican, I should also remind you that a presidential term is four years and when you serve two terms, four times two equals eight. President Obama served eight years and Donald Trump only served four because he lost his reelection to President Joe Biden.

Also, I don’t recall President Obama ever showing off his signature on executive orders the way Donald Trump did as though he had just figured out how to write his own name. And from looking at his signature, I’m not sure he ever did.

Remember when Republicans hated on Obama for playing golf? I think there were a thousand political cartoons from right-wing troglodyte cartoonists on it. How many cartoons did they draw about Donald Trump playing golf? Zero. For the sake of comparison, let’s compare. According to Golf News Net, in case you’re a Republican, is a website about golf, President Obama played 333 games. Donald Trump, according to Statista.com, in case you’re a Republican, is a website about statistics, he played golf 285 times. Wow! President Obama played more golf than Trump. Oh yeah. President Obama served two terms and Donald Trump only one because he lost his reelection to President Joe Biden.

Another point on this is that when President Obama played golf, it was usually on a federal course which means it was at minimal cost to taxpayers. When Donald Trump played golf, each and every time it was at one of his resorts, which means we paid Donald Trump to play golf. His fans, cultists, love to point out that Trump donated his salary. But we paid him more than his salary to play golf. It’s estimated his golfing costs us $142 million. Most of that went directly into Donald Trump’s pocket. Which is another example of Republican hypocrisy.

They scream about the “deep state” and corruption yet ignore that Donald Trump grifted taxpayers at his resorts and hotels.

But it takes a special skill to whine about “cancel culture” while calling people “snowflakes.”

Republicans have a new term and it’s “cancel culture.” Anytime a Republican is told, “Sorry, we don’t want to hear any of your racism today,” they start screaming, “Cancel culture!”

They scream and yell that it’s censorship when they’re not allowed to express their “conservative” viewpoints on non-government platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. But I haven’t heard of any Republican being kicked off Twitter for talking about conservative issues like the flat tax, or decreasing government regulations, or stripping away the inheritance tax so trust-fund babies can finally catch a break. No. I only hear about them being kicked off for spreading conspiracy theories, racism, and organizing and promoting white nationalist terrorism.

Actress Gina Carano was fired by Lucasfilm and Disney for comparing the criticism Republicans receive to the way Jews were treated by the Nazis. Gina would have an excellent point if all the Nazis did was talk bad about about Jews.

Trump cultists used the term when Donald Trump was kicked off Twitter permanently claiming his viewpoints were being discriminated against, ignoring the fact he used the platform to help instigate a terrorist attack on the United States government.

And now, the Cancel Culture Club is engaging in cancel culture within their own ranks. Republicans are censuring Republicans for acting like Republicans.

You see, kids, once upon a time the Republican Party was a party of issues and not one that worshipped a cult of stupid racist moronic personality. Today, the party is a cult. It’s totally built around one man. One very stupid, moronic, racist man.

Senator Lindsey Graham, who once said Donald Trump would destroy the party, has proven his point by stating the future of the party is Lara Trump. Who? That’s one of them gold diggers who married a Trump spawn. Wait until the entire organization is auctioned off in legal and criminal settlements. What are Lara’s qualifications for the United States Senate? She did marry the dumbest Trump which probably still makes her smarter than Lindsey Graham.

Lindsey Graham, who once called Donald Trump a “jackass” and a “kook,” said the “MAGA movement must continue.” Really? Donald Trump was an incumbent who lost reelection and you want that “movement” to continue? I predict if the “MAGA movement” continues, it’ll only make states trending blue trend faster. Say goodbye to Georgia, Arizona, and possibly even North Carolina. Democrats will eventually get Texas in that deal.

Congressthingperson and Qanon follower, Marjorie Taylor Greene, said that the Republican Party “belongs to Donald Trump and no one else.” She said, “It’s his party.” And he can cry if he wants to.

Signs you are in a cult include not being able to recognize that you’re a hypocrite and you’re not making sense. Another sign you’re in a cult is being unable to recognize you’re in a cult. If you are a follower of Trump and believe he’s going to come back and retake the presidency, or that the election was stolen from him, congratulations. You’re in a cult.

The Republican Party, the warriors against cancel culture because they believe everybody’s speech should be free, independent, and protected, is now cancel culturing out its own people for exercising free speech and independence. How day they stray from the Church of Trump.

After Donald Trump lost the to Joe Biden, the Arizona GOP censured Cindy McCain and former Senator Jeff Flake for endorsing Biden. They also censured their own Republican governor for working to combat the coronavirus instead of engaging in fear mongering and politicization of the pandemic.

After last Saturday’s vote in the Senate Trial that saw seven Republicans vote to convict Donald Trump, those seven are now being punished by the Republican Party. How dare they try to make someone responsible for inciting a terrorist attack. How dare they leave the Church of MAGA.

In North Carolina, the Republicans have censured Senator Richard Burr for his vote. Burr said, “My party’s leadership has chosen loyalty to one man over the core principles of the Republican Party and the founders of our great nation.” The core principle of the Republican Party is now Trump, which is ironic because Donald Trump doesn’t have any principles.

The Republicans in Pennsylvania censured Senator Pat Toomey for his vote.

The Republicans in my home state of Louisiana didn’t wait long in censuring Senator Bill Cassidy. They issued their proclamation the same day at the Senate vote. Cassidy replied, “Our Constitution and our country is more important than any one person. I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty.”

Republicans in Utah are passing a petition around that states Senator Mitt Romney, “appears to be an agent for the Establishment Deep State” and “misrepresented himself as a Republican” during his 2018 campaign. Even the state party realizes that is nuts and they’re backing off a censure, but still…a lot of GOP cultists in Utah are pissed…and not just because they have to live in Utah.

Republicans in Maine have told their members “to be prepared for an emergency state committee meeting in the near future” over Senator Susan Collins’ vote to convict Trump.

And in Nebraska, Senator Ben Sasse has basically said to “Bring it on.” Sasse said, “You are welcome to censure me.” He then told them, “But let’s be clear about why this is happening. It’s because I still believe, as you used to, that politics isn’t about the weird worship of one dude.”

In Alaska, Senator Lisa Murkowski’s vote to convict may lure a challenge from…wait for it…Sarah Palin. And if you are a liberal political cartoonist, you’re thinking right now, “Oh please, God…make this happen and I’ll never eat pork again.” Gods against eating pork, right? I don’t know. How about tentacles? If Sarah Palin runs for the Senate, I’ll never eat tentacles again! You have my word.

Illinois Congressman, Republican Adam Kinzinger, has been shunned by eleven members of his own family which I can relate to. They wrote a certified letter to his father stating the congressman was a “disappointment” to them and “to God.” They were upset over his “horrible, rude accusations” to “president (sic) Trump.” The part that reeks of similarities to my sisters said, “It is now most embarrassing to us that we are related to you.” Then, they accused him of being in the “Devils Army.’

Do you know how to tell when you’re in a cult? When you accuse others of being in the “Devils Army.”

Each of these Republicans put their career at risk in opposing Trump. Kinzinger has been at odds with Trump since 2015, even receiving a message from Donald that he should go “fuck himself,” which makes me jealous. I wish I had a “go fuck yourself” from a Trump. But the party should appreciate and value members who are this brave. Instead, the party caves into fear and cult worship.

Do you know how to tell if you’re a cult? It’s when you seek to destroy those who disagree with your leader, the Dear Leader in this case. The Republican Party is behaving like the Workers’ Party of Korea.

Cassidy says our nation and Constitution are more important than just one person. Sasse says the party shouldn’t be “weird worship of one dude.” But Republicans are saying no.

The Republican Party, the party that was once the party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Ike, and Reagan, has put the weird worship of one dude before the Constitution and country. If you don’t believe me, look at what happened January 6. That was all for one weird dude.

The party of Trump that canceled Colin Kaepernick because of his opinions is now eating its own, ignoring its inconsistency. But canceling someone for his/her opinion is much different than canceling someone because s/he is racist or spreading dangerous bullshit. They also fail to see that being removed from non-government platforms and outlets is NOT censorship.

If you’re an asshole and I don’t want you in my house, that’s not cancel culture or censorship. That’s me not wanting an asshole in my house.

I have an assignment for Trump cultists who may be reading today’s blog. Read the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. After you read it, report back here in the comments section and explain how it applies to Twitter banning Donald Trump. Tell me how it applies to Disney firing Gina Carano.

There is a huge difference in all these “cancellations.” Gina Carano was fired for saying stupid insensitive shit, comparing being criticized to the Holocaust. Donald Trump was banned for starting riots. Cartoonist Ben Garrison was kicked off Twitter for sharing debunked racist conspiracy theories. Republicans are canceling Republicans for trying to make someone accountable for his actions. These Republicans are being censured, which is a punishment without any consequence, for not being sufficiently sycophantic.

It’s not cancel culture. It’s consequence culture. And Republicans don’t want any Republicans to face consequences for racism, conspiracy theories, or aiding and abetting terrorists.

And if the Republican Party is just going to be a cult to the “weird worship of one dude,” we need to cancel Republican culture.

Itchy And Scratchy


cjones02152021

If you were playing a drinking game during day 4 of the Trump Trial in the United States Senate where you took a drink each time the word “fight” came from the Trump defense team, you’re dead.

Trump’s lawyers attempted to confuse the jury of senators, and the rest of the nation, that the trial isn’t about inciting a terrorist attack, but one of free speech. They complained that all the video evidence the House Impeachment managers presented was manipulated and edited…and then proceeded to show video evidence that was manipulated and edited.

The lawyers Trump hired to replace the lawyers who replaced the lawyers who didn’t want to present a defense of conspiracy theories showed video after video of Democrats saying the word “fight.” See? There’s proof that when Trump said “fight,” no harm was intended. We’re not prosecuting Democrats for saying “fight,” right?

Except…name one time that there was an attack on the U.S. Capitol building directly after a Democrat said the word “fight.” Or maybe you can find an example of Democrats calling their supporters to a city, pointing to a specific location, and then telling their crowd to “march” to it.

If you want to talk about someone using the word “fight,” Trump used it 20 times in his insurrection speech. He used “patriotically” and “peacefully” just once each.

Trump’s lawyers had 16 hours to present their defense, but who can say “fight” for 16 hours other than Donald Trump? They wrapped it up with four. But still, four hours of bullshit and debunked conspiracy theories was very hard to take.

No matter what these lawyers present, there’s no way of getting around the fact that the MAGA mob wouldn’t have been in Washington, D.C. if Donald Trump hadn’t called them to be there. They wouldn’t have gone to the Capitol if Donald Trump hadn’t told them to go. They went there to overturn an election. And, they went there based on a lie that the election was stolen.

But Donald Trump’s lawyers pushed that lie too. During their presentation, Trump’s lawyers pushed their client’s lies about voter fraud. Trump’s first team of lawyers resigned because they refused to base their defense on debunked conspiracy theories.

Trump’s lawyers made a stupid defense. But then again, they are Trump lawyers. You can “fight.” But Donald Trump wasn’t talking about fighting for civil rights. He wasn’t talking about fighting for the right to vote. He wasn’t talking about fighting for freedom of speech. Donald Trump was talking about fighting to overturn an election. Donald Trump was talking about fighting to install him as a dictator. Donald Trump told his supporters to “fight” to stop Congress from doing a procedure mandated by the United States Constitution.

There’s a big difference between saying “fight for your right to party” and “fight to overturn an election.”

And while Itchy and Scratchy’s theme said, “fight, fight, fight…bite, bite, bite,” Trump’s lawyers “lie, lie, lie…lie, lie, lie…”

Note: I did it again. I made a post on social media saying the lawyers should blame Itchy and Scratchy instead of Trump, and then I liked it too much. So it became a cartoon. Oh well.

The Face That Wrecks The Place


cjones02122021

There’s a lesson to be learned here, kids. Don’t get your lawyers out of vending machines. Also, don’t get them out of Cracker Jack or cereal boxes. Watching Trump’s lawyers in action yesterday, you would think that’s where he got them. But still, out of a Cracker Jack box is still better than out of Trump University.

Donald Trump raised millions for his legal defense. No, he never planned to pay for these lawyers out of his own pocket. During the Mueller investigation, campaign funds paid for his and his trust-fund baby goony kids’ lawyers. Everybody else Trump dragged through the corruption quagmire had to pay for their own lawyers. But if you donated to Trump’s legal defense fund, do you feel you got your moneys worth yesterday? HAHA. Who are we kidding? Those lawyers aren’t going to be paid. Like Rudy, they can charge by the farts and they still won’t get paid.

In fact, lawyers dropped out of the Trump legal defense team over squabbles about getting paid. I didn’t go to college for seven years but I’m educated enough to know that Donald Trump is going to stiff his next lawyer…then his next, then his next, etc. Even the Trump lawyers who defended him in his case against Stormy Daniels got a harder stiffing than she did.

And maybe the lawyers who are defending Trump during his impeachment trial shouldn’t get paid. None of the lawyers from Trump’s first impeachment returned for part two of the Trump leagl shit show. So apparently, Donald Trump went down to a courthouse and found one of those lawyers in a bad suit with ketchup stains bothering people in the lobby, asking, “Do you need a lawyer?” Maybe Trump thought it’d be fine because it worked for Dan Aykroyd in “Dr. Detroit.” And from looking at Bruce Castor’s suit, that’s where he found him…or he was trying to impress the new boss by wearing something from the Trump suit line. Seriously, Trumpers. If you’re not being measured for your suit, you’re going to look like shit. Stop buying off the rack at Walmart. I know this and I’m a T-Shirt and hoodie guy.

But Bruce Castor, in his oversized suit that probably belonged to his father, started his argument praising the impeachment managers, the prosecutors. He admitted that he and his partner, David Schoen, had to change their strategy because the prosecutor’s opening presentation was so good.

The prosecution started by showing a 13-minute video of Trump sending his MAGA mob to the Capitol to stage an insurrection. And the worst thing is, they knew it was coming. This morning, Trump’s legal team objected to the video because it’s detrimental to their case. OK, I got that from the Jim Carrey movie, “Liar Liar,” but that was basically their argument.

Lead House impeachment manager Representative Jamie Raskin argued there is no “January exception.” Raskin pointed out, correctly, “Conduct that would be a high crime or misdemeanor throughout a president’s first few years in office, you can suddenly do in your last few weeks in office without facing any constitutional accountability at all” if Trump’s case is dismissed.

“It’s an invitation to the president to take his best shot at anything he may want to do on his way out the door—including using violent means to lock that door.”

Seriously, it’s just fucking stupid to argue what’s illegal in December is legal in January.

A mob of Donald Trump supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol. Without a doubt, and everyone can agree on this, Donald Trump sent the mob to the Capitol. That mob was not spontaneous. That mob didn’t organize itself. That mob was directed by Donald Trump. He told them to be there on January 6 and that it would be “wild.” Now, Republicans have two arguments.

Argument one: You can’t convict Trump or even hold this trial because it’s unconstitutional. Even Republican lawyers laugh at that one.

Argument two: Donald Trump is not responsible for the violence and insurrection of the MAGA mob despite being the one who sent them and told them they have to “fight or they wouldn’t have a country” because the election was being stolen from them.

If I send a mob to your house and I tell them to just scream on your front yard peacefully, but they bust in and finger-bang your butt, are you gonna get mad at me? Are you going to blame me? Are you going to send me a bill for one of those inflatable donuts? I didn’t do it. I only got them worked up and pointed them in the direction of your butt…I mean house.

For an hour, Trump’s lawyer Castor rambled such a weak defense that even Republican senators reacted to with, “Oh dear God.”

It was terrible. According to sources deep inside Mar-a-Lago (worst porn title EVER), Trump was furious with one person saying, “On a scale of one to 10, with 10 being the angriest, Mr. Trump was an eight.” And anytime Trump’s anger reaches higher on the scale than he can count, it’s bad.

Fortunately for these horrible lawyers, the fix is in. Rigged election? How about a rigged jury? Unfortunately for the jury, it’s harder for them to say they were swayed by a defense that argues the other side presented a better case.

Donald Trump is guilty. The death count from the mob he sent to the United States Capitol to overturn an election and install himself as a dictator now stands at seven. There were multiple injuries. One Capitol Police officer lost three fingers. Another is expected to lose an eye. And let’s not forget Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick who the MAGA mob murdered. And Republicans want to let Trump off the hook before the trial even begins?

If a president can send terrorists to attack the United States Capitol, tweet encouragement to the mob during the act where people are murdered, and not be punished for it, then what is an impeachable offense? Even good lawyers wouldn’t be able to make an argument that Trump is innocent and shouldn’t be convicted and barred from ever occupying the Oval Office ever again.

Brian Sicknick gave his life protecting the men who are going to let his murderer go.

Democrat Dreams


cjones02082021

When I heard the Democrats invited Donald Trump to testify at his senate trial for his impeachment, I was giddy with low expectations.

As a cartoonist, I could just imagine how much material Donald Trump would give me bringing his lies and conspiracy theories to a trial in the United States Senate. Can you imagine him sitting in the chamber talking about how the election was stolen from him by illegal voting machines? Can you imagine him talking about voting machines controlled by the Clintons, Hugo Chavez, and globalists (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) swapping votes from him to Biden? Can you imagine him sitting there claiming he won states he lost?

The only thing that could possibly get me more excited would be if his defense lawyers were Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell. And if Rudy’s hair started running down his face while he was farting, I would probably lose my mind.

But of course, no half-assed decent lawyer would allow a liar like Donald Trump to walk into a perjury trap like that. How is it a perjury trap? Because if Donald Trump took an oath to tell the truth, it’s a trap under any circumstances. Even a Trump lawyer isn’t that stupid…not even the ones who haven’t quit yet.

Donald Trump actually wants his defense to center around the lie that the election was stolen from him.

But reality has set in for me.

Donald Trump will not testify. Rudy and Sidney will not be his lawyers. And even if he did testify and came off as guilty as hell without any doubts to it, Senate Republicans would still vote to acquit his lying corrupt ass. And all this cartoonist will get will be adults in the White House behaving maturely and seriously while enacting policies that make total sense. Sad face.

But a cartoonist can still dream. I have been known to laugh in my sleep.

Blockhead Legal Services


cjones02032021

I had a reader tweet a message at me yesterday asking when I published a cartoon featuring Donald Trump and Peanuts’ Lucy Van Pelt. I had to dig it up and I discovered it was in March 2018. This morning, I thought today might be a good time to bring Lucy back.

In early 2018, Donald Trump was having trouble finding lawyers to represent him in the Mueller investigation. You knew it was bad when he was tweeting how the best lawyers in the nation were climbing over each other to represent him like he was an ambulance with a broken siren. The truth was, they kept dropping like flies. I’m sorry I can’t find a better metaphor. “Faster than credible lawyers dumping Donald Trump” is a metaphor.

During the Mueller investigation, his lead counsel resigned, he hired a husband and wife duo who were screaming fucknut legal heads at Fox News only for them to resign later. The attorneys he did have sent drunkenly-composed emails to reporters, mailed hush agreements from Trump’s address, tweeted guilt from Trump’s Twitter account, and loudly discussed strategy in one of the busiest and most popular restaurants among journalists in Washington. Keep in mind, this is the same guy who kept Michael Cohen on retainer. Donald Trump picks lawyers like he picks doctors.

Donald Trump set a lot of records as president (sic) with one of them being the rejections from law firms. According to reports, at least six law firms rejected working for Donald Trump in 2018. One legal expert said, “It is difficult for one to maintain one’s appearance of being an ethical lawyer while trying to represent Donald Trump.”

Even O.J. got top-notch legal help but then again, O.J. probably paid his lawyers.

Inside sources say Donald Trump doesn’t want to pay Rudy Giuliani his legal fees for spreading the big stolen election lie. Did he pay Sidney Powell? And look at the quality of legal services he received from that dynamic-farting duo. They lost over 60 cases in court. You would think they would have won at least one of them by accident. But even Lionel Hutz didn’t spread conspiracy theories about the deceased Hugo Chavez stealing the election from Trump with socialist voting machines. Jackie Chiles would take on Cosmo Kramer as a client before he’d take Donald Trump. Saul Goodman never had hair dye dripping down his face during a press conference. Even Barry Zuckerhorn didn’t fart during legislative hearings.

The Senate trial over Donald Trump’s impeachment for inciting a terrorist attack against the U.S. Capitol begins next week, and yesterday he lost five lawyers. One person familiar with what’s going on in Trump Legal Land told The New York Times they’re all splitting because Donald Trump is insisting they argue he won the election and it was stolen from him, thus justifying death to Congress and his own vice president.

The same person also says Trump told the lawyers the case is “simple” and he could argue it himself and save the money on lawyers. As a political cartoonist, all I have to say about that prospect is, “PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE IF THERE IS A GOD YOU’LL MAKE IT HAPPEN PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF FUCK PLEASE!!!!!”

I would really like to see that.

I guess there are even a few Republican lawyers who can’t sell the lie Trump won the election. He did lose over 60 cases with that argument. Or, maybe the lawyers just don’t want to lie. I said it repeatedly throughout the Trump presidency (sic): You can not defend Donald Trump without lying. It’s impossible. You don’t need a law degree. You need a degree in bullshit.

Donald Trump is guilty. He incited a riot. He spent nearly $3 million putting that attack together. He told his supporters to march on the Capitol and stage a coup attempt. He told them to overturn an election, disenfranchise millions of voters, and install him as an illegitimate president. He told his followers to make him a fascist dictator. His crowd attacked the Capitol looking to hang Mike Pence and kidnap Nancy Pelosi. Five people died, including a Capitol Police officer. Donald Trump is guilty. He shouldn’t just be convicted in the Senate and barred from future political office. Donald Trump should be in prison.

Do you know who says Donald Trump told the terrorists to attack the Capitol? The terrorists. That’s their defense.

Fortunately for Donald Trump, his jury has Republicans on it. Like Trump, Republicans are corrupt. For Trump, they are so sycophantic, they’ll vote not to convict him for an act where he tried to have them killed. Seriously.

Donald Trump probably doesn’t even need a lawyer because he already has a tainted jury. But let me offer one piece of advice in case she does take him as a client: Lucy, get that nickel in advance.

Trump’s Deuce


cjones01182021

It’s official. Donald Trump is the worst president (sic) in American history.

In Donald Trump’s defense of being the worst president (sic) ever, he pretty much sucks in general. He’s a horrible shitty person. Also in his defense of being the worst president (sic) ever, he never actually tried to do the job. Who knows. Maybe if he actually tried to have done the job and had served he citizens of this nation instead of himself, he would only be the second or third worst president (sic) in American history.

To be fair, he was unqualified for the job and it’s a position he never should have been placed in by less than half the people of this nation and Russia. President Obama, who was elected twice, winning the popular vote BOTH times, said Donald Trump was “uniquely unqualified” for the presidency. That means his level of awfulness was off the charts. It would be really hard to find someone, anyone in this nation who could be worst at president than Donald Trump.

Also to be fair, it didn’t really take two impeachments for Donald Trump to be the worst president (sic) ever. But that second impeachment kills the argument. Say what you will about Richard Nixon, Millard Fillmore, Herbert Hoover, James Buchanan, Franklin Pierce, or Andrew Johnson, none of them was impeached twice. Johnson was only impeached once. Donald Trump was on his way to being the worst president (sic) ever the day he was “elected” president (sic).

Look at how Donald Trump was elected. Yes, the election was fair and legal. Even Trump, upset he didn’t win the popular vote, looked for voter fraud and couldn’t find any. But the way he ran his campaign was corrupt. Russia helped him win the election. Yes, Republicans keep yelling about the “Russia hoax” but it’s a fact that Donald Trump publicly asked Russia for help. It’s a fact Russians were invited to Trump Tower, the campaign HQ, to provide dirt on Hillary Clinton. It’s a fact his campaign manager was sharing polling information with people connected to Russia. Fact, fact, fuckity fact, fact.

Also before he “won” the election, his campaign started with racism and a lie. He said Mexico was sending rapists and murderers to our country and that he was going to build a big wall on the border and make Mexico pay for it. So far, he’s built about 47 miles of new wall and Mexico hasn’t sent us a penny for it.

Before he took office, he appointed his daughter and her skinny husband to “adviser” positions in the White House. The very first thing Skinny did was try to get a back channel to communicate with Russia. Why? Who knows. And it took multiple submissions of their applications for security clearances until Trump said, “Fuck it,” over-ruled the FBI who was saying, “Do NOT ever give security clearances to these treasonous trust-fund heathens,” and gave them clearances anyway. What the heck, it’s not like Donald Trump could have gotten a security clearance if he wasn’t president (sic).

And after he became president (sic), he kept adding to his resume to become the worst president (sic) ever. During his inauguration, he talked about American carnage on the steps of the capitol which was later engulfed in American carnage he created. Then, he sent his spokesgoon out to lie about crowd sizes. To this point, Donald Trump has told over 22,000 lies. His second spokesgoon continued the pattern of lying…as did his third spokesgoon.

He ripped families apart, sent babies to jail and forced them to go to immigration court…alone. He got rid of DACA. He enacted a travel ban against Muslims. He talked about “shithole” countries. He said four American congresswoman with dark skin should be sent back to where they came from…which for three of them, is America. He stole an Obama Supreme Court appointment, appointed a suspected beer-loving rapist frat boy to the Supreme Court, then stole Joe Biden’s Supreme Court appointment.

He made the Justice Department the Department of Protecting Donald Trump. He appointed an attorney general who was a total sycophant and worked to protect Trump. He pardoned his criminal associates. Over 80% of Trump pardons have been for Trump goons.

Donald Trump probably had the most turnover of any administration. And he probably has the most former staffers who are willing to talk shit about him and call him a “fucking moron.” Contributing to his being a bad president (sic), Ivanka and Skinny never quit. From the look of it, Joe Biden might have to physically throw them out of the White House.

He used the presidency to enrich himself. Every foreign diplomat and Trump sycophant booked rooms and events at Trump hotels and resorts. He bilked the Secret Service and charged them to protect him. He only stayed at his resorts, which was charged to the taxpayers. His campaign held events at his resorts, which means money donated to his campaign went to the Trump Organization. He tried to have a world summit awarded to one of crappy golf resorts. His UK ambassador tried to get the British Open awarded to one of his resorts. And on top of all that, he played more golf than, not just any president before him, but more golf than anyone ever.

He spread conspiracy theories and said a lot of stupid stuff. He retweeted Nazis. He was laughed at by foreign leaders and diplomats. He took us out of the Paris Climate Agreement, eager to contribute more to global warming, and ripped up the Iran Nuclear Agreement which made it easier for that nation to acquire a nuclear weapon.

He had an Iranian general murdered. Say what you will about Iranian generals, but we’re not supposed to assassinate people. It’s just bad form.

He embraced dictators. He said he was in love with Kim Jong Un and gave him credibility and respect. He coddled other dictators and strongmen. Mostly, he loved Vladimir Putin. Donald Trump never said one bad word about the guy and when it came down to choosing between America and Putin, he always chose Putin.

And then there were the Nazis. He retweeted Nazis. He retweeted Nazi conspiracy theories and lies. During his debate with Joe Biden, he gave a shout-out to Proud Boys. But worst was Charlottesville where Nazis marched in polo shirts and with tiki torches while chanting “Jews will not replace us” and “Blood and soil” before one of them killed Heather Heyer. Donald Trump said there “good people” on both sides. Do you know who marches with Nazis chanting “Jews will not replace us” and “Blood and soil?” Nazis. And if you stuck with Donald Trump after Charlottesville, you might be a racist.

Then came the impeachment…excuse me. Then came the FIRST impeachment. Donald Trump attempted to bully a foreign government to help him get reelected. It’s what that Mueller investigation was about from 2016. And here he was in 2019, still asking foreign governments for help. Except this time, he was president (sic) and had the resources to exert pressure. He took military aid that had been authorized by Congress to help Ukraine in the war against…wait for it…Russia, and told them if they didn’t make a public announcement about investigating Joe Biden’s son, then they may not get that aid. The phone call had all the charm of a mob boss…if the mob boss was a fucking moron.

That got Trump impeached but not convicted. Republicans, who had just spent three years talking about how collusion was really bad, decided collusion was not bad if the colluder was an orange Republican.

As soon as we got out of that, we got the pandemic, which so far, has killed only about 380,000 Americans. Donald Trump lied repeatedly about the virus, politicized wearing masks and social distancing, told people that maybe injecting bleach would get rid of it, hawked other quack cures, put his son-in-law, Skinny, in charge of distributing ventilators and PPE stuff (who said it’s “our stuff, not yours.”), and was caught on tape admitting he “downplayed” it and lied to the American public. Then, he caught the virus which totally shocked everyone because he did nothing to protect himself and we all thought karma had taken the last few years off.

Trump even held a political rally that killed his friend, Herman Cain, which was a huge loss for him because he doesn’t have that many black friends to use for political arguments.

Then he told us the upcoming election would be fraudulent. He told the American people that they could not trust voting. A president (sic) told Americans not to trust democracy. He probably told them this because he knew he was going to lose. Then, he lost. After losing, he continued the lie. Today, he still hasn’t conceded he lost or even congratulated the winner, that guy he wanted Ukraine to pretend to investigate.

During the campaign, he held the Republican National Convention, with huge giant Trump signs, on the White House lawn. He pardoned people as entertainment during the convention. He had his name lit up in fireworks above the Washington Monument for which not enough people stopped and said, “Holy fucking shit that’s grotesque.”

Then, not satisfied with losing case after case in court being argued with his farty lawyer, who also caught covid, he tried to get states to overturn the election. The president (sic) of the United States tried to steal an election. The president (sic) of the United States tried to disenfranchise millions of American voters. The president (sic) of the United States tried to remain in office through authoritarian means.

Donald Trump invited state legislators to the White House to convince them to overturn the results in their states. He even called the secretary of state of Georgia and told him to find 11,780 votes because Joe Biden had beaten him by 11,779. Donald Trump asked an elected official to break the law.

And Donald Trump spent over two months telling his base of stupid people the election was rigged, stolen, and a sham. He got them upset. He riled them up. Then he told them to come to Washington, D.C. on January 6 and that it’d be “wild.” On January 6, Congress was to certify the electoral college making Joe Biden president. During the certification, Trump held a rally in Washington and told his base to “march” to the capitol building and stop the victory and certification of an American president. Sure, he said the word “peacefully” somewhere in that speech…a speech where he told his MAGAts to march to the capitol and make him remain president. If you argue that Trump did NOT want violence, then your argument is that he wanted the angry mob to peacefully stage a coup.

Trump’s angry mob stormed the capitol building. They broke windows and doors. They beat cops with flag poles, They waved the Confederate flag in the United States capitol building. They overtook the podium in the Senate chamber. They stole Nancy Pelosi’s podium. They brought zip ties for kidnapping Pelosi. They chanted about hanging Mike Pence. They killed a cop. They shit in the hallways. During this, Donald Trump was calling senators to strategize on the steal and made a video telling the mob they were “special” and he “loved” them. Keep in mind that in the past, he said he “fell in love” with Kim Jong Un. Donald Trump has love for North Korean dictators and terrorists. And he kept telling people the election was a fraud.

And how could Donald Trump lose an election after choosing Russia over the United States, tanking an economy, and watching a virus kill, at that time, over 200,000 people?

Donald Trump was impeached a second time for inciting insurrection. He definitely incited terrorism. There is no out for him on this. He sent a mob to Congress, while Congress was doing a duty mandated by the United States Constitution, so he could remain in official illegally. Yeah, he deserved impeachment.

And this impeachment is the most bipartisan impeachment in American history. Granted, we don’t have that many impeachments but Donald Trump now owns 50% of them.

Andrew Johnson was a bad president but he shouldn’t have been impeached. His crime? He fired members of his cabinet, which every president does. No Democrat voted to impeach. Decades later, the Supreme Court vindicated him. Bill Clinton was impeached for lying about receiving oral sex. Five Democrats voted to impeach him. For Trump’s first impeachment, no Republicans voted for it. For his second impeachment (which sounds ridiculous each time I type it), ten Republicans voted for it, and with today’s Republicans, that’s a lot. There were many more who wanted to vote for impeachment but, being Republicans, they’re cowards.

Republicans are upset Trump was impeached twice and with just a week to go in his term. A term that two weeks ago they all said would turn into his second term. These Republicans helped Trump carry the lie until their house was nearly destroyed. And still, they can’t punish the guy.

Was it ridiculous to impeach Trump a second time? Yes, but only because Donald Trump made it impossible for the House not to impeach him. Donald Trump has to be punished beyond being banned from Twitter. Another argument for worst president (sic) ever. He’s the first president to have his phone taken away from him.

We can’t ignore that he incited a terrorist attack on our government. We can’t ignore that he tried to remain in office illegally. We can’t ignore he engineered a coup attempt. We can’t ignore that he tried to destroy our republic to become a fascist dictator.

Before Trump, there were debates over whether George W. Bush was the worst president ever. Historians weighed his performance with the likes of other bad presidents. As soon as Trump was “elected,” everyone stopped talking about Bush being the worst. Now, that debate is over until another extremely bad president come along. A president who will have to be phenomenally worse than Donald Trump for there to be an argument over who’s worst. And if that guy or woman (Ivanka might run) comes along in my lifetime, I’m moving to France.

The debate is over. Its done. Tell the Jim Jordans, Matt Gaetzs, Sean Hannitys, and Tucker Carlsons to go suck a lemon. It is official. Donald Trump is the worst president (sic) in American history.

The Republican God


CNN02092020

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.

I’m going to use this cartoon to digress and rant on something that kinda annoys me.

The thing that annoys me about Trump supporters is that they have to pretend Donald Trump is a lot of things he’s not. Self-made billionaire, smart, honest, great negotiator, non-racist, not corrupt, etc, etc. In fact, I have never heard or read a pro-Trump argument or defense that didn’t contain at least one lie. So, when I hear Christians and Evangelicals praise Trump, I know they’re phonies.

A couple of my Facebook “friends” shared a link to an article about why a Christan can support Donald Trump. Of course, neither of these fine, upstanding Christian men care that the article contains bullshit. The piece, “How Can You Follow Jesus And Support Trump,”  written by a Shane Idleman, is total bullshit. The article is in a publication called Christian Voices which obviously has a low standard for journalism and not something on my regular reading list.

In the article, our author argues he’s in favor of legal immigration but only if the immigrants are “god-fearing.” So right away, he’s in favor of discrimination. He’s too stupid to realize he’s making that argument. My friends are too stupid to realize it also. If you’re arguing that you only want people entering this nation who believe in what you believe, how long until you say you only want people who look like you? But, it’s his choice of what issue to focus on when it comes to defending Trump. He makes the claim that Donald Trump isn’t separating families or putting kids into cages. That’s not just a lie. It’s a lie racists use.

Mr. Christian writing man, if you’re such a great follower of Jesus, then why are you a liar? Yes, Donald Trump separated families after they crossed the border. Yes, he put kids in cages. They even forced minor children to go to court alone. It was part of his policy. He’s on record advocating for this. His Attorney General at the time it began, Jeff Sessions, made a speech announcing the policy and giggled about it to the point I thought they were going to have to administer oxygen to the racist elf. If this policy didn’t exist, then why did a court order them to stop doing it? You’re a liar.

Nowhere in the article does he mention Donald Trump lying, his love for Putin and cheating in an election, grabbing pussies, his racism, or stealing money from a children’s cancer charity. The guy would rather complain that the media is out to get Trump and his supporters. But there’s the thing about that argument, they never point what the media is lying about. Or, at least not successfully. There’s also an argument about socialism which is another huge lie unless the writer is totally ignorant on the subject, which is possible. So once again, another Trump defense based on lies.

If you have to justify your following of Donald Trump, you’re in the wrong. I don’t have to justify who I vote for or the positions I take. Probably because I’m not a lying piece of shit. If you have to lie to support your political positions, then you’re on the wrong side.

These Christians argue they’re getting judges for supporting Donald Trump. But where in the Bible does it say you can trade in your convictions and principles for stuff? I went to church a lot when I was a kid. Really. I don’t remember that sermon. And the other thing about these judges, our Christian friends don’t care by what means they get their stuff. They don’t care if the seats are stolen (and they stole more than one Supreme Court seat) or that you have to cheat in an election to get them.

The thing is, you never had convictions or principles. You were lying then just like you’re a liar now. But we’ve known that for a long time from your silence on government spending when a Republican is in control or from your love of the death penalty while claiming you’re “pro-life.”

The author says they’re not following a man but a movement. Your movement is a cult. You don’t follow Jesus anymore if you ever did (who, by the way, was a socialist). You follow Donald Trump because he’s your god, which he stated when he claimed he’s the “chosen one.” Guess what. That wasn’t mentioned in the article either.

Trump Bloodletting


cjones02152020

Who’s going to get frogmarched out of the White House next, the photographer?

In voting against impeachment, Maine Senator Susan Collins felt Donald Trump had been punished enough and said part of the reason she voted for acquittal was that he had “learned his lesson.” That’s as naive as believing the Justice Department will investigate the president (sic) for exacting revenge against those who came forward and testified against him.

Donald Trump will not be happy until there’s no one left in the White House, including in non-political positions, and in his party except for toadies and sycophants. His idiot and corrupt son, Don Jr., tweeted that Senator Mitt Romney should be kicked out of the GOP for voting to remove Trump from office.

Yesterday, late on a Friday when most Americans aren’t paying attention to Washington, Trump removed Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the decorated war hero who still has shrapnel in his body, for testifying against him before Congress. Vindman was the top Ukraine policy officer on the National Security Council. Trump didn’t just remove Vindman. He also removed Yevgeny Vindman, who serves as a senior lawyer on the NSC, whose only crime is being Alexander’s twin brother and looking like him. Ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland who testified there was definitely a quid pro quo, was also ousted.

Donald Trump didn’t learn a lesson. He’s trying to teach a lesson that any criticism of him, or patriotism that goes against Trumpism, will be punished.

Yesterday, Trump ranted against his perceived enemies, describing them as “vicious,” “horrible,” “bad,” “dirty,” and “corrupt.” He retweeted calls to exact revenge and the White House Press Secretary told Fox News that Trump had been treated unfairly and that “maybe people should pay for that.” The White House actually issued a statement, “Will there be no retribution?”

Others have already fled to avoid the bloodletting, like former ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch; William B. Taylor Jr., her replacement; vice presidential aide Jennifer Williams; State Department official Michael McKinley; special envoy for Ukraine negotiations Kurt Volker; and NSC official Tim Morrison. There’s talk of removing Michael Atkinson, the inspector general of the intelligence community and Victoria Coates, the deputy national security adviser, who has told coworkers she “fears for her job.” Let’s not forget James Comey was fired from the top position of the FBI for investigating Trump, and his deputy, Andrew McCabe, hours before he was to qualify for his pension. Donald Trump will ruin careers and lives over his pettiness.

I guess they can consider themselves lucky to be victims of Trump’s bloodletting before he goes full banana republic and eliminates opponents with anti-aircraft guns and feeding them to dogs as they do in his buddy Kim Jong Un’s North Korea.

There were questions as to how Donald Trump would react after the impeachment trial was over. We’re finding out and none of it’s a surprise, except maybe to Susan Collins. The Senate told Donald Trump he can do whatever he wants. The Justice Department has told him the same thing and now he’s doing it. The man has no restraint. Now, it’s a crime to criticize Donald Trump, even if a subpoena orders you to testify.

It’s not just being critical or pointing out facts that make you an enemy of Donald Trump. Being a patriot makes you an enemy of Donald Trump. And it’s not just in Washington.

Yesterday, a newspaper editor of a small daily in Mississippi, a FREAKING NEWSPAPER EDITOR, responded to one of my mass email solicitations by saying my cartoons on Donald Trump were “unAmerican.” And, I didn’t even send the solicitation to this guy. It was forwarded to him by a staffer and it bothered him so much, he felt the need to scold me for criticizing Dear Leader. A newspaperman literally told me that criticizing the President of the United States is unAmerican. And keep in mind, this particular president has called the free press “enemies of the American people.” Journalists for Trump is even more confusing than blacks for Trump.

We are now entering serious and dangerous banana republic terrority. Republicans are not just defending Donald Trump’s authoritarian and dictatorial tendencies and desires, they’re encouraging it.

It’s not unAmerican to criticize Donald Trump. In fact, criticizing and making fun of the President of the United States if the most American thing you can do. Right now, it’s more important to criticize the president (sic) of the United States than it has ever been in our nation’s history. But if you support Donald Trump, then you’re pro-banana republic.

In fact, supporting Donald Trump is the most un-American and unpatriotic thing you can do.

Bullshit Corinthians


cjones02142020

If you read this blog on a regular basis, then you’re probably well-read enough politically to be familiar with the argument Republicans have been pushing over the past few years that the Democratic Party created the Ku Klux Klan. You’ll see it in memes and in videos created by Prager U., a conservative outfit that’s not a real university, that engages in bullshit propaganda.

The truth is, the people who created the KKK were Democrats. In the South at that time, there was only one party and it was the Democratic Party. But the Democratic Party did not create the KKK. It takes some serious delusion and warping of history to believe liberals were lynching, suppressing, and denying freedom and the right to vote for African-Americans. Trust me on this, those people were conservatives. When someone shares a meme or video that Democrats created the KKK, what they’re saying is that if they were alive back then, they would have been Democrats. And if you read this blog on a regular basis, you would have been a Republican.

You would have been on the right side then because you’re on the right side now. Today’s Republicans are on the wrong side of history. They would have fought to defend slavery. They would have marched against civil rights. They would have been Vichy French. They would have helped load the trains.

They push this bogus Democratic Party/KKK argument because the truth is, today’s KKK are Republicans and they throw rallies and parades for Donald Trump. The truth is, the KKK was created by who Republicans are today. The people who created the KKK and are in today’s GOP, are Christian fundamentalists. The people who created the KKK were citing God and Christianity. Prager doesn’t mention that. They didn’t adhere to any real Christian principles then and they don’t today. They were liars then and they’re liars now. Their religion has always been their crutch to shit on other people, mostly minorities.

Evangelicals who support Donald Trump are phonies without principles to stand on. The majority of them opposed him before joining the cult. They couldn’t stomach this thrice-married racist liar with the world’s worst combover who assaults women. What did Donald Trump change to gain their support? He didn’t change anything. He didn’t even change his combover. They decided their convictions weren’t ever really all that important. They exposed themselves to the rest of us that everything they’ve preached about over the decades, family values, honesty, integrity, patriotism, was all bullshit.

This was in full display at the National Prayer Breakfast held in Washington, D.C. While Republicans are livid that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi broke decorum and was disrespectful by tearing up her copy of Trump’s racist and fact-challenged State of the Union speech, they had no issues with him using this event about tolerance into his own personal Festivus. They didn’t mind that he held up newspaper headlines about his acquittal or that he boasted about his polls. They don’t care that later during a White House ceremony, where Festivus continued, he called the Russia probe “bullshit.”

Trump used the bipartisan breakfast to air his grievances calling his enemies “corrupt” and “dishonest” and how they’ve put “your president” through a “terrible ordeal.” No, Donald Trump put himself, and us, through this ordeal with his corruption and lies. But what’s even worse is that he questioned their religion at this event.

Mr. “2 Corinthians” who has said he’s never sought forgiveness from God and has talked about the few times he’s been to church where he drinks his “little wine” and eats his “little cracker,” is going to question someone else’s religion.

Senator Mitt Romney cited his faith in voting to impeach Trump. Romney is well known for his religious convictions. Say what you will about Romney, but it’s hard to say you’ve never heard him discuss or cite his faith in the past. Leave it to Donald Trump to make such a claim.

Trump said, “I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong.” Don’t worry, Mitt. He doesn’t like people who get captured during war either. Then he said, “And then you have some that used religion as a crutch. They never used it before. An article written today — never heard him use it before but today, you know, it’s one of those things.” For Trump, difficulty speaking in complete sentences is one of those things.

In reference to Pelosi, he said, “Nor do I like people who say, ‘I pray for you,’ when they know that’s not so.”

Pelosi was at the event and spoke about the poor and persecuted. The keynote address was delivered by Arthur Brooks, a Harvard professor who asked Americans to put aside hatred in national life and “love your enemies.”

Brooks asked, “How many of you love somebody with whom you disagree politically?” Everyone in the room raised their hands…except for Donald Trump. He said, “Ask God to take political contempt from your heart. And sometimes when it’s too hard, ask God to help you fake it.” Then Trump spoke who didn’t bother to fake it.

If you listened to Trump’s State of the Union speech, you know he’s about hatred. The guy who said “send them back” and has defended Nazis while tearing immigrant families apart and putting babies in jail, will never fake it. In fact, his base loves his hate. It’s his hate that created his base.

The Religious right didn’t get involved in politics when abortion became legal. They want you to believe that but no. They got involved over race and they’ve been waiting decades for Donald Trump. When Trump calls himself the “chosen one,” for evangelicals, he is.

The crowd that claims they follow Jesus truly follows a man who preaches hate and evangelicals are his disciples.

But at the very least, we now know that everything they preach in the future is all just bullshit.
