Locker Room

Fascinated With Newt


cjones10302016

Be honest with yourself. You know you’ve always wanted to see Newt Gingrich waddle his naked, pink body strapped with nothing but a towel in a locker room. As a bonus I’ve also given you a nekkie Trump. Do they make Tic Tacs for eyeballs?

Newt Gingrich was interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly Tuesday night and he said she was “fascinated with sex” while she was asking him about Donald Trump’s treatment of women. Nice.

Newt got testy, shook his finger at Kelly, and wanted her to say Bill Clinton is a sexual predator. He also said Clinton was disbarred in Arkansas which I want to point out is not true.

It’s kinda bizarre that Newt wants to talk about Clinton’s accusers what with his track record and all when it comes to infidelity. Trump, Giuliani, Newt, Roger Ailes…what is it with these guys, none of whom looks like a Sam Malone, and women? It seems it would behoove the Trump campaign, which is struggling with the women vote, to send out a surrogate who isn’t a HeSlut…less enough surrogates who try to push a woman around on live TV.

Kelly kept her cool and told Newt that she’s  “fascinated by the protection of women.” Newt might want to find another female to bully because it didn’t work with Kelly and Newt came off like a whiny baby. Maybe he should start with one who’s not smarter than he is. But Republicans love this kind of stuff.

Donald Trump loved it so much that he interrupted promoting his newest empty hotel in Washington, D.C. to praise Newt and he said “We don’t play games, Newt, right? We don’t play games.”

Trump has had issues with Kelly ever since the first Republican debate. He doesn’t like hard questions…or any questions not concerning how great he is. He famously said she was angry and had “blood coming out of her wherever.”

Kelly finished her interview with Newt by saying “You can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them, Mr. Speaker.” Newt has been angry since the 1990s when Bill Clinton was kicking his butt all over the place. He eventually had to resign from his role as Speaker of the House during the impeachment process when it was discovered that he too is a horn dog.

One other bizarre detail of this is that Newt went on to accuse Fox News of being part of the “biased media.” Newt is still on Fox News payroll as a paid political commentator. That’s a serious breach of ethics on Fox’s part as they’re interviewing a man they’re paying who isn’t just a Trump supporter, he’s on Team Trump.

Newt can keep competing with Giuliani for who can make the most outlandish statements. I really enjoy drawing him. He’s one of those guys I’ve never had trouble caricaturing. He’s as easy now as he was in 1994.

What’s In A Name?

I got this idea a couple days ago but I held off on drawing it as I had already done a bathroom cartoon this week. I stored the idea in a folder I have for concepts I need to hold off on. Some of the ideas come to life while most wither away into obscurity. Some of the ideas get trashed as I have second thoughts on their quality or maybe for another reason. The folder is full of Trump ideas most of which I’ll never draw.

On Friday the Obama administration told public schools across the U.S. to let transgender students use the bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity. Several states, such as North Carolina, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Texas are promptly freaking out.

The bullies say the measure is needed to protect women and children from sexual predators. The Justice Department and others argue the threat is practically nonexistent and the law discriminatory. This has become the Civil Rights issue of the day. Once again the conservatives are on the wrong side.

These conservatives would rather bully, intimidate, and punish kids and others over a nonexistent threat. This is a perfect example of the politics of fear. It’s easier to stoke the fears of the lower informed than to solve actual problems. It works as the more conservative voters are too distracted by the fear of men in dresses entering the little girls room than to ask politicians about funding for education and transportation.

The irony here is that the states are complaining about federal government overreach while the state of North Carolina tells local municipalities that they can’t enact tolerant laws. Conservatives are deaf to irony.

It seems the only jobs Republicans will create are for bathroom police. It’s funny they never lobbied for surveillance of churches where pedophilia has actually taken place.
