Hating America


cjones07202019

Donald Trump hates America.

America is a nation of diversity. Campaigning on “make America great again,” Trump is longing for and promising to return this nation to the racist ways of the past, the America he loves. He hates that this is a nation of white, brown, black, yellow, etc, and so do his supporters.

When told today that white supremacists will love his message of “go back to where you came from,” Trump said he wasn’t worried because a lot of people agree with him. He is owning that he’s reaching out to the racists.

The sheer hypocrisy of saying those who criticize this nation and are not happy should leave will go over the heads of his cult. So will this cartoon.

If you’re not happy and think we should “make America great again,” then why don’t you just leave?

MAGA Smarts


cjones07112019

You know it’s coming.

Donald Trump tells his cult not to believe what they see and hear unless they see and hear it from him.

They believe he won the popular vote, millions of “illegals” voted, he had the largest inauguration crowd in history, he created a booming economy, Russia didn’t meddle, Obama wiretapped Trump Tower, babies aren’t being kept in cages, there were good people on both sides, he never paid hush money to a pornstar, his hands really are big, the noise from windmills do cause cancer, his father was born in Germany, raking forests prevents fires in Finland, he’s not a racist, Mexico will pay for the wall and construction on it has already started, American consumers don’t pay for tariffs, and that he’s a successful businessman.

Trump, who has told over 10,000 lies as president even has his cult believing it stopped raining for his inauguration speech. He literally lied about the weather and they ate it up. If he wasn’t blaming the rain for his teleprompter wigging out, he’d lie about the rain for his July 4th speech. Speaking of teleprompters, remember when Trump used to criticize Obama and Hillary Clinton for using them?

Trump once said, “If you run for president, you shouldn’t be allowed to use teleprompters. Because you don’t even know if the guy is smart.” We already knew this guy isn’t smart, but maybe watching him struggle to read text off a teleprompter, even indoors or in good weather, underscores just how stupid of a guy he truly is.

Soon, if it’s not happening already, there will be members of the Trump cult claiming there were airports during the American revolution.

Happy Something Something


cjones07062019

Donald Trump loves to take credit where he deserves none. He takes credit for inheriting Obama’s economy. He took credit for no commercial airline crashes in 2017, despite there also not being any for nearly the past decade. He took credit for the phrase “priming the pump,” which has been around at least since the 1930s. He’s taken credit for Lady Gaga being a star (really). He’s taken credit for rebuilding the military, which has not been rebuilt. He’s taken credit for replenishing nuclear weapons which is another lie unless he’s referring to Russia, Iran, and North Korea. He’s even taken credit for ending the conspiracy of Obama being born outside the United States. Seriously. Trump also likes to take credit for things you’ve always had, like the freedom to say “Merry Christmas.” Stupid people have actually thanked him for this. I have a middle finger I’d like to thank him for.

Yesterday, Trump took credit for the plant in Lima, Ohio that makes tanks for the U.S. military not being shut down, despite it receiving funds in 2013, 2014, and 2017, even though the Army keeps telling Congress they don’t need more tanks (currently, there are over 4,000 tanks that have never been used in storage in the desert).

Speaking of tanks, Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to roll a bunch of them through Washington on the Fourth of July as part of his co-opting the capital’s annual celebration into a massive Trump rally. He’s also ordered the presidential helicopter, Marine One, Air Force One, a stealth fighter, another squadron of fighter jets, and more helicopters, and 40,000 idiots in MAGA hats. This event will bring physical (tanks) and emotional (Trump and MAGA hat idiots) damage to Washington, D.C. Trump’s celebration of himself will even freeze air traffic to and from Reagan National Airport, which was also frozen once because of al Qaida.

Donald Trump ruins everything he touches. Now, he’s going to ruin the Fourth of July, a holiday that he and his cultists would have difficulty telling you which day of the month it lands on.

Trump is using a national holiday, the capital, the military, and taxpayer money to glorify himself. Because there won’t be any dictators around, Trump has to yank his own dick.

The White House will “give out” tickets for attendees to sit in a VIP section, which I’m sure we’ll learn later was sold by the Trump Campaign (wait for it). Trump’s people attempted to cancel the multiyear contract the Park Service has with a fireworks company so that a campaign contributor could “donate” their services.

The Abrams tank weights more than 60 tons, which is slightly less than Trump’s ego. Despite the city’s protest, Trump plans to have them destroy the city’s streets and perhaps the rooms underneath the Lincoln Memorial. Trump also boasted about the “new” Sherman tanks, which, like his brain, haven’t been in use since the 1950s.

Trump will expect people to thank him for the Fourth of July after this event. There are currently commercials more annoying than that Cars 4 Kids jingle asking Americans to call the White House to “thank President Trump,” for what, I don’t know. Now, they can add a holiday. Just like Trump cultists don’t remember the economy Obama gave them, they’ll forget we had the Fourth of July before Trump. Personally, I’m kinda worried about Trump cultists around fireworks, but then again, that’s a problem that might solve itself.

Fortunately, there will be people present with IQs higher than shoe sizes to let Trump know he’s not appreciated and we’re not thankful for a damn thing he’s done to this country. Protesters have been granted permits to demonstrate in the capital and the Trump Baby may even make an appearance. I mean the balloon Trump Baby. The other Trump baby has guaranteed he’ll show up.

Trump should avoid hijacking a national holiday and instead tweet out a “happy Fourth to everyone, even the haters” from his bed of hamberders in the midsts of his usual retweets of neo-Nazi videos.

We all get to look forward to Trump’s whiny voice on this special day. Now, in addition to fireworks, there’s something else that’ll hurt dogs’ ears on July the Fourth. If you need me, I’ll be under the bed with the dog.

Shooting The Dead


cjones03252019

It’s too easy to draw a cartoon illustrating just how horrible, vile, disgusting, and terrible of a human being that is DonaldTrump. What is more important to the nation is that his supporters allow Trump to be a vile human piece of excrement without suffering any consequences. Each time Trump sinks lower into the cesspool, he takes his supporters with him. For example; Donald Trump is more worried about offending white supremacists than veterans and supporters of the military.

The majority of Trump’s statements are flat-out lies, hogwash, and verifiable bullshit of the first degree. But he was absolutely correct when he said he could shoot a guy on 5th Avenue and not lose any voters. If the guy is black, Mexican, Muslim, or gay, he’d probably gain a few.

For some unknown reason other than being petty, insecure, and being such a nasty piece of poo that even a dung beetle wouldn’t touch it, Donald Trump has been attacking the late Senator John McCain. McCain hasn’t said or done anything recently to disparage or challenge Trump because he’s been dead since last August (if you’re a Republican, that’s more than seven months ago).

John McCain was a war hero who spent over five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam at the infamous Hanoi Hilton. McCain was offered early release but refused to go without his fellow prisoners. While this was going on, Donald Trump was avoiding the war with college deferments and claiming he had bone spurs.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump said McCain was “not” a hero, then said he was only a hero because he got captured before finishing the shit sandwich with, “I like people who aren’t captured.” Since then, he’s gone on to attack other Gold Star families.

Yesterday, Trump spoke at a tank factory, where they build tanks…for the military…which employs veterans…and Trump spent five minutes bashing McCain. While the audience didn’t erupt into huge cheers or create a new chant, they will probably continue to support Trump. Before the rally outside the White House, Trump said, “I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be.” Trump is fighting a dead man and losing.

Where’s the condemnation from veterans and military families that have supported Trump? You can barely scrounge up any outrage from Republicans in the Senate, where many of McCain’s former colleagues are still serving. There are currently 53 Republicans in the Senate and only two have criticized Trump for his attacks on McCain and his family, Georgia’s Johnny Isakson and Utah’s Mitt Romney. His supposed best friend and southern dandy Lindsey Graham has made a pro-McCain statement since the attacks began, but without criticizing Trump for his comments. That took some dandy weaseling. Graham is as afraid of upsetting Trump supporters as Trump is at upsetting nazis.

It’s been seven days since the white nationalist terror attack in New Zealand that killed 50 Muslims. Trump has yet to say anything negative about white supremacists, white nationalists, Nazis, or any racists, but he has spent just about the entire time attacking McCain. Trump believes you’re more devoted to your racism than to the military. He feels he can attack a POW and you won’t leave, but if he says “Nazis aren’t always the nicest people,” then you may bail and find a more racist Republican, which would be a huge challenge. Good luck with that.

Trump complained that McCain gave the dossier, written about his connections to Russia, to the FBI instead of calling him. Trump is upset that McCain was more patriotic than treasonous. Trump also said it was up to him that McCain got the funeral he did and that Trump never received a thank you. Seriously.

Trump is more sensitive than your Aunt Ingrid who got upset she never received a Christmas card for the itchy ugly sweater she gave you.

Trump has zero regards for other people. He’s currently trying to destroy the Conway marriage and he doesn’t care that the McCain family has to constantly hear a 72-year-old racist toddler scream about their deceased husband and father. As a bonus and thanks to Trump, the family is receiving hateful messages from his supporters.

My father was a war hero who served in Vietnam. He was wounded. He’s buried in a military cemetery. We weren’t particularly close but I love him. If someone was trashing him, I know how I’d feel about it. I wouldn’t vote for that person. I have siblings, one a parent to members of the military, and they still support Trump. Now, imagine Trump was attacking your father.

It doesn’t matter to people like Kellyanne Conway that at some point, her children are going to see which side she stood on when a vile human being like Donald Trump attacked their father. It doesn’t matter to Trump supporters in the military community that he attacks one of their own. It doesn’t matter to them to see how little he respects them, their families, or their service.

The biggest reason Donald Trump continues to attack John McCain is that McCain was a better man than he’ll ever be. If you still support Trump, you’re the worst you can be.

The Conway Mood Killer


cjones03232019

It’s kind of unusual in the new normal that George Conway is a Republican who is still a Republican and not a member of the Trump cult, as the guy is a fierce critic of Donald Trump. What’s even more unusual is that he’s married to Kellyanne Conway, an adviser to Trump on his payroll.

George has gone after Trump several times in the past, most recently this weekend after Trump conducted a Festivus celebration on Twitter and aired his grievances. George accused Trump of being mentally unbalanced and published symptoms of narcissism disorder, with each one fitting Trump. Kellyanne said she didn’t agree with her husband.

Today, Trump said that George is a loser. Now, Kellyanne has a test of loyalty. While disagreeing with her husband about Trump’s mental state, is she going to disagree with her boss that her husband is a loser?

This is a bonus cartoon so you’re just getting the short blog tonight.

A Disgusting Hoax


cjones02272019

While waiting to hear back from an editor today, I killed time by creating another cartoon. Apparently, I’m not allowed to sleep anymore. I’m probably going to cover this again so you’ll get a column on the topic then. I’m way too tired to kick out a column right now.

I will say this though, it’s really hard to deny paying people off when you wrote them a check…right, Donald?

I’m still waiting on that editor.

Pro Bono Beatings


cjones02232019

I find that conservatives focus on the most simplistic and basic element of an issue while liberals see the larger picture.

A liberal points out that Donald Trump broke a campaign promise of Mexico paying for his border wall. They notice Trump rejected an offer of $25 billion for his border wall because it was attached to DACA guarantees (that he had stripped). They notice he rejected another offer and shut down the government (before Democrats took over Congress), hurting millions of Americans before reopening the government and getting nothing in return. They notice that the deal he finally signed gives him some money for border fencing, but much less than the offer he rejected before the shutdown. Then, he declares a national emergency, when there is not an emergency, to take money Congress has designated for other areas, like the defense department and disaster relief for California and Puerto Rico. Liberals challenge the constitutionality of Trump’s disaster relief. Conservatives who describe themselves as “Constitutionalists” get angry at people for opposing the national emergency.

A liberal believes that no company, such as Amazon, should be making $11 billion in profit while paying workers salaries that keep them on welfare. A conservative gets mad at the guy on welfare (and often while that conservative is also on welfare). A liberal points out that social welfare is only half of what the federal government spends on corporate welfare. A conservative gets mad at a single mom with food stamps while ignoring that Exxon gets $1 billion a year.

A liberal protests Trump ripping families apart, losing track of them, putting children into cages and forcing them to represent themselves in court. A conservative believes Trump is the Christian candidate.

A liberal thinks Jon Stewart, Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert, Bill Maher, and Alec Baldwin are funny. A conservative thinks the racial slur “Pocahontas” is hilarious.

A conservative will make a lot of noise about a gay, black actor they had never heard of previously who may have created a hoax about being involved in a hate crime. Yet, you’ll never hear the conservatives acknowledge the fact that hate crimes have increased during the Trump era.

If you talk to conservatives, you have noticed by now that they can’t argue for or defend Trump without bringing up Obama. One of their gripes is that Obama increased racial animosity in this nation during his two terms. Yes, racial animosity did increase during Obama’s presidency because conservatives freaked out that a black guy was in the White House. The entire Tea Party movement was a racist one. The Tea Party claimed they formed, before Obama even took office, to oppose wasteful government spending, yet were silent when George W. Bush financed two wars with tax cuts. What conservatives are doing is blaming Obama for their racism.

While blaming Obama for racial animosity, they ignore that Trump encouraged attendees at his rallies to attack protesters, promising to pay their legal fees. They ignore that Trump was endorsed by David Duke. They ignore that the Ku Klux Klan threw a parade in his honor. Most of all, they ignore that hate crimes have increased greatly during the Trump presidency.

The FBI reported last November that hate crimes increased for the third year in a row. In 2017, they rose 17 percent from 2016. Black people accounted for nearly half of hate crime victims last year, according to the F.B.I. report. Of those targeted based on religion, 58 percent were Jewish.

New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Seattle, Philadelphia, and San Francisco saw the highest number of hate crimes in a decade. In Los Angeles, hate crimes rose by 13 percent in 2018 compared to 2017. New York saw a 6 percent increase, Chicago saw 26 percent, and Houston saw 173 percent. While Los Angeles, New York and Chicago saw declines in crime overall, hate crimes rose.

Last year during a runoff for the U.S. Senate seat in Mississippi, Republican candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith made jokes about attending lynchings. She won.

Last week, a small-town weekly newspaper in Alabama called for mass lynchings and the Ku Klux Klan to “clean up DC” writing, “Time for the Ku Klux Klan to night ride again.”

Last year, a white man in Kentucky (where the FBI says hate crimes were up 83.5 percent in 2017), shot and killed two black men in a grocery store after failing to enter a black church. Also last year, a white man killed 11 worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue after echoing Trump’s anti-globalists rhetoric on social media.

In 2017, Nazis marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, chanting “Jews will not replace us” and “blood and soil,” ultimately killing a young woman named Heather Heyer, and Donald Trump defended them by saying there were “nice people” among the Nazis.

It’s obvious Donald Trump has emboldened racists to come out from under their hoods and make themselves heard. For them, racism is “making America great again.” They are literally parading in the streets and running over people with their cars.

You won’t hear a conservative talk about any of that, but you will hear them talk about Jussie Smollett who may have staged a hate crime against him in Chicago. It’s the police in Chicago who are charging that Smollett faked his attack, the same police who claimed police-shooting victim Laquan McDonald had attacked them with a knife before a video was released (a year later) proving they were lying.

If Smollett did fake his attack, he should be held accountable. He should be held accountable, not just for the crime but for hurting the public’s awareness of the rise in hate crimes since Donald Trump became the champion of birtherism and claimed a black president was ineligible.

If Smollett is guilty, you’re not going to hear the end of it. You won’t even hear the end of it if he’s found innocent. But regarding actual hate crimes and the increase in the Trump era, all you’re going to get from conservatives and Trump sycophants is silence.

It’ll be like a Mike Pence speech in Europe. Silence.
