Trump’s Symbol Of Hate


cjones07052020

Donald Trump’s campaign, along with a super PAC, are airing commercials attacking Joe Biden’s age (because he’s four years older than Trump) and his mental health because he stutters. It’s like these people don’t pay attention to their own bullshit because it’s their guy who suggested we all drink bleach, believes in windmill cancer and invisible airplanes, and asked about nuking hurricanes. It’s not just that they don’t pay attention, it’s that they don’t remember.

They don’t remember four days ago. Last weekend, Donald Trump tweeted out a video with an old white Trump supporter in a golf cart shouting “white power.” The president (sic) of the United States literally tweeted “white power.” We haven’t had such a loud endorsement of white supremacy from the White House since Woodrow Wilson had a screening in that building of “The Birth of a Nation,” a pro-KKK movie where most of the black characters are played by white actors in blackface. For Donald Trump and Woodrow Wilson, the White House is the WHITE HOUSE.

Donald Trump deleted the “white power” golf cart tweet. The WHITEY House issued a statement lying that Trump didn’t hear the “white power” in the video, despite it being shouted twice. But, if Donald Trump absorbed the video like he does intelligence reports, maybe he did only see and hear his name. He doesn’t hear that Putin placed a bounty on U.S. soldiers and he doesn’t hear “white power” when it’s shouted by old Florida fuckers in golf carts. Biden might be older but it’s Donald who needs a hearing aid. What? Bike tower? Night shower? Bite flower? Fight meower?

It was the Whitey House that issued a statement over the “white power” shout, but the Whitey House never condemned it. In fact, it thanked Mr. White Power golf cart fucker dude for his support. And Donald Trump? He never said anything about it. It’s not like he said, “What? O.M.G., I did not mean to tweet a video with “white power” in it. That’s a symbol of hate.” Instead, Donald Trump continued to foster and spread hate by tweeting more videos of dangerous black people. Lately, it’s been a daily thing for him. Donald Trump is a racist.

And the racist president reacted swiftly to another slogan as New York City is going to paint the words “Black Lives Matter” on 5th Avenue. Where on 5th Avenue? Right in front of…wait for it…Trump Tower. Oh goody. I wonder if Donald will react in a negative manner…oh there it is.

Donald Trump went off. Even your average racist would probably know better than to go off unhinged over something like this. He should be endorsing and celebrating it saying, “What a great idea, and thank you, New York City. Black lives do matter and I’m honored you would paint that slogan in front of my home.” Could he at least try to fake it? Nope. That didn’t happen.

Instead, Trump screamed out a tweet that said the slogan was “denigrating this luxury Avenue,” which is how he responded when the Jeffersons moved on up. He also said it would “antagonize” the New York Police Department. Then, he said “black lives matter” is a “symbol of hate.” Yeah…the guy who tweeted “white power” thinks the expression…the slogan…the words “black lives matter” is racist. Whaaaaaaaat?

Kaleigh McEnany, the Whitey House spokesgoon who claimed at her first press briefing she’d never lie to us, said Trump was attacking the organization, not the phrase. But, he didn’t say that in his tweet. He said “black lives matter,” on the street in front of his home is a “symbol of hate.” The guy hates the words “black lives matter” being painted on the streets in front of his home and the White House, but he wants Confederate monuments to remain in place. Sounds kinda racist.

Mayor Bill DeBlasio said he put the phrase in front of Trump Tower on purpose and “Obviously, we want the president to hear it because he’s never shown respect for those three words.” Trump proved that’s true by his quick response.

Mayor Bill also said, “When he hears Black lives matter, he presents a horrible negative reality of something that doesn’t exist, and he misses the underlying meaning that we’re saying we have to honor the role of African Americans in our history and our society.” That’s exactly true. And every mayor in every city in the world that has a Trump property, or any named after him, should paint “Black Lives Matter” in front of those properties. An international trolling of Trump would be almost as beautiful as the message. In fact, there are more Trump buildings in New York City. Troll away, Mr. Bill.

The reason we say “black lives matter” is because this country has a long history of black lives not mattering…or not mattering as much. Anyone who replies or uses “all lives matter” has a problem with you saying “black lives matter.” They have an issue with equality and they think if black lives matter, then maybe white lives won’t matter as much. That’s bullshit. Equality is not pie. More for someone else doesn’t mean less for you.

Saying “black lives matter” isn’t saying other lives don’t matter. It’s saying it’s time that black lives matter as well. White lives have always mattered and that’s why we don’t say that. We never needed to say “white lives matter” because it’s always been the case. We need to say “black lives matter.” Donald Trump and his racist goons of supporters don’t get that. They probably never will.

But Donald Trump is correct in that there are words on 5th Avenue that are a symbol of hate. It’s really just one word and that word is “Trump.” It’s on Trump Tower. And when people think of Donald Trump, they think of hate, especially his supporters because that’s why they’re in the cult.

People think of hate when they think of Donald Trump because Donald Trump is a racist. Donald Trump is a “symbol of hate.”

Racist Mississippi


cjones07042020

It’s time for another racism test, kids. If you’re upset about the Confederate flag being removed from the state flag of Mississippi…and you don’t live in Mississippi, then you’re probably a racist. In fact, if you’re upset and you actually live in Mississippi, yup. You’re still a racist. Also, if you’re still supporting Donald Trump, you’re a racist.

After 126 years of being on the state flag, Mississippi is finally removing the Confederate emblem. Yesterday, the governor signed a bill making it official.

In the wake of Black Lives Matter, or in the wave of it, Confederate emblems are coming down. Lady Antebellum is now “Lady A.” The Dixie Chicks are now just “The Chicks.” Aunt Jemima is saying good-bye with Uncle Ben and Mrs. Butterworth soon to follow. Confederate statues are being removed officially or by the brute force of protesters. NASCAR has removed the hate flag from its venues, but not all the nooses apparently. Soon, the only thing left will be a hate president and a few of his Senators.

There is a lot that’s great about Mississippi. It’s where I started my career and sharpened my teeth in this business. I had the best teachers in Mississippi and I can’t think of a better place for a journalist to start their career. I worked for a weekly newspaper for five years, a daily for eight months (they fired me), and I freelanced several years for the Mississippi Business Journal while self-syndicating to over 40 papers in the state. I worked and lived in the state for seven years. I still have great friends there. My son was born there. In fact, I’ll be back there for a few days next month…even after publishing this cartoon.

If you don’t live in Mississippi, then let me explain this to you: It’s kinda like the biggest small town in the world. And in journalism circles, everyone knows everyone. If you’re in the journalism business, you will not impress another journalist by telling him or her that you had the governor in your office last week because he’s been in their office too. One governor was almost my personal lawyer before he ran for the top job. I once sat on the benches of a little league game with a different governor who, like me, had a newborn at home and we showed each other pics of our babies. Back in the 90s, it was not uncommon for me to run into the state’s attorney general (who was once in my office going through a stack of cartoons looking for himself) and for him to call me by my first name. How small of a town is it? People in the state know who their agriculture commissioner is. Here in Virginia, most people don’t even know we have a black lieutenant governor (he’s the one who actually has a black face).

It’s not that people in Mississippi are smarter than people in Virginia. God no. It’s just that it’s more close-knit. Plus, when the agriculture commissioner is in office for two decades, at some point you learn his name. And there are fish fries. You meet every politician in the state at fish fries. I can’t tell you how many times I met former Senator Trent Lott, mostly at fish fries. It got to the point that when I was told to cover something featuring Lott, my response was usually, “again?”. Oddly enough, in my seven years in the state, I never did meet Thad Cochran.

I mentioned the training I received in Mississippi. Two lessons that have stuck with me over the years are: There is almost never too close with a camera and you rarely need “that.” Also, my publisher once told me he wanted to see more irony in my work and I scoffed because I was sure there was plenty of irony in my work. Then I went to my office, had to step around a governor, and looked up the definition of “irony” just to be sure.

But, there is amazing talent in the state. It gave us William Faulkner, Willie Morris, Eudora Welty, and Marshall Ramsey (though he’s actually from Georgia…another state that had the hate emblem on their flag). Mississippi gave us Elvis. It gave us Oprah.

But I bet when you think of Mississippi, the first thing isn’t Faulkner, plantations, antebellum crap, cotton, Oprah, or even “O’ Brother, Where Art Thou?”. I bet the first thing you think of is racism.

Mississippi arguably has the most hateful past when it comes to racism. Even as recent as 2018, while appointed Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith was running for her seat, she joked about public lynchings. On the day Trump visited to help her campaign against a black guy, nooses were hung on the grounds of the state capitol. As Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott said of racist Strom Thurmond at his 100th racist birthday party, “When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over the years, either.” I don’t think he meant we wouldn’t have had “all these problems” because Thurmond was a great race uniter.

And about those lynchings in the south, between 1882 and 1968, there were 539 documented lynchings in Mississippi which were even more than Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas, and Florida, all states with over 200 lynchings each. And who were they lynching? It wasn’t white people. So when it’s 2018 and a candidate for the United States Senate is still making lynching jokes, your state is racist.

Before you argue the state isn’t racist, it’s 2020 and the Confederate emblem is just now being removed from the official flag of a state where 38 percent of the population is black.

Also, another little test for you: If you don’t believe the Confederate flag is racist, you’re a racist.

It’s great the hate emblem is being removed. Georgia removed it. South Carolina removed it off the grounds of their state capitol after a brutal murder in a black church in 2015. But, the Confederacy is still represented in state flags. Georgia’s flag still has 13 stars and is modeled after the actual Confederate flag (it’s like when David Duke stopped wearing Klan robes and started wearing suits). Alabama’s and Florida’s flags were influenced by the hate flag. The Arkansas flag has four stars that represent the nations the state belonged to, Spain, France, the U.S., and the Confederacy…with the Confederacy’s star being on top.

There’s still a lot of hate, not just in the south but in this nation. Removing these symbols and emblems are only the first steps. The biggest thing we have to change are minds. When can we do that? After we stop teaching our kids to hate. Just yesterday, here in my little liberal city in Virginia, I heard a guy drop multiple N-bombs while talking about Black Lives Matter and his support for Donald Trump. Obviously, he was from Stafford County.

Like Donald Trump, Mississippi is synonymous with hate. Donald Trump’s not going to change his name because he’d still be racist. Mississippi won’t change its name either, but it can eventually cease to be synonymous with racism. But it has a LOT of work to do. That will be proven in November when they return Cindy Hyde-Smith to the Senate and go red for Donald Trump.

Maybe someday when you think of Mississippi, the first thing that comes to your mind won’t be hate.

Trump’s White Power


cjones07022020

For the past five years or so, I have been saying supporting Donald Trump doesn’t necessarily make you a racist, but it does mean racism is not a dealbreaker for you. Why is that? Because Donald Trump is an obvious racist.

Donald Trump’s supporters argue he’s not a racist after each one of his acts of racism.

Sued by the Justice Department for discrimination against blacks…TWICE? That’s not racist.

Champion of birtherism by accusing without any proof that the nation’s first black president was born in Kenya. Nah, that’s not racist.

Bought full-page ads calling for the death of black and Latino teenagers in the Central Park 5 case, then not retracting it after being proven innocent. Nope. Not racist.

Starts his campaign by promising to build a wall to keep out immigrants and says Mexico is sending us rapists and murderers? I guess that’s not racist either.

Complains about people coming here from “shithole” countries and wants more people from places like Norway. Racist? What are you talking about?

Says a judge isn’t fit to preside over one of his fake university trials because he’s of Mexican descent. Paul Ryan called that racist, but what does he know?

Tweets that four brown American female representatives in the United States Congress should go back to where they came from. That’s not racist or sexist. Sheesh!

He says there are fine people marching with tiki torch neo-Nazis shouting “Jews will not replace us” and “Blood and soil.” Sure, nice people often march with Nazis.

He defends symbols of the Confederacy as his “heritage.” Nope, not racist for a New Yorker to define the racist Confederacy as his heritage.

Conducts two hate rallies where he uses the term “Kung Flu virus.” Why that’s just telling us where the coronavirus came from…Kung Flu land.

Then, he retweets a video of his supporters screaming…”White power,” thanking them for their support. Uh…

So, none of that is racist? Not one of those instances? If you talk to a Trump supporter, nope. Not one. It’s just the media not understandings him, or he was joking, or something is out of context, or he didn’t mean what he said, or he accidentally retweeted a racist statement while accidentally typing a thank you or…

I got some news for you, Gladys. If you don’t think any of those examples (and there are more) are racist, then you are a racist.

Donald Trump is a racist and we keep getting these racist incidents from him again and again and again and, etc. Donald Trump has more examples of racism than David Duke. Seriously. You would think if you have a track record of being accused of racism, then you wouldn’t keep doing racist shit. Even if you are a racist you would probably want to attempt to conceal it. Right? Not this racist.

On Sunday, right before going to one of his golf resorts of racist assholes, Donald Trump tweeted a video of a bunch of his supporters at The Villages in Florida zipping around in golf carts in a dueling demonstration against some of his critics. Donald Trump wrote, “Thank you to the great people of The Villages.” And in the video clip, you hear one of the villages’ idiots shouts, “White power!” In fact, he shouted it twice. It’s not obscure. It’s not buried by other sounds. The white Trump supporter shouts “White power.” What’s next? Tweeting a video of a cross burning only to claim later he didn’t know what it meant?

I don’t care if your Twitter profile states, “Retweets are not endorsements,” retweets are endorsements. Donald Trump endorses white power. Donald Trump is a racist.

Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the Senate said Trump should take it down (he did) and that it was “indefensible.” So, Senator Scott…stop defending the indefensible. Donald Trump is a racist.

A White House spokesgoon, Judd Deere, who should be resigning instead of defending the indefensible, said, “President Trump is a big fan of The Villages. He did not hear the one statement made on the video. What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters.”

Translation: Donald Trump is a big fan of racists at The Villages and what he saw was tremendous enthusiasm from his racist supporters.

There was no condemnation of the slogan or the person. Just a, “Oh, I didn’t hear that.” Yeah. He didn’t hear it while going to the trouble of watching it, realizing they were supporters, and it was something he wanted to retweet. Are you telling me he didn’t watch it all the way through even once?

As Sarah Marshall said in the film, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, “Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.”

And, there was no statement of any sort saying they didn’t want the support from people who shout “white power.” Nope. They want that support.

Donald Trump has spent the past five years sending out dog whistles to racists. Over the past month as people have been taking to the streets shouting “Black lives matter,” he’s been turning those dog whistles into cattle calls. He’s doing everything he can to tell his narrow white racist base he’s one of them.

Donald Trump thinks he can win four more years by dividing this nation and solidifying his white racist support. But the thing is, he already has those people. How many racists are out there who are undecided? Do you honestly believe there are white supremacists out there not making a commitment until they hear who Joe Biden has selected as his running mate? Donald Trump is a racist. He’s their man.

Donald Trump is playing a stupid game where he’s telling his supporters he’s a racist while telling the rest of us he’s not. It’s a stupid game that only works on stupid people. By “stupid people,” I mean racist Trump supporters.

Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund said, “This really is not about the president taking it down. This is about the judgment of the president in putting it up. It’s about what the president believes and it’s time for this country to really face that.”

What Donald Trump believes is white supremacy. What Donald Trump believes is white power and it is time for the country to face that.

I used to think if you supported Donald Trump then racism wasn’t a dealbreaker for you. After all this, I know it’s just not a dealbreaker for you. Racism is the deal. You’re not voting for Donald Trump despite his racism. At this point, you’re voting for Donald Trump because of his racism.

Donald Trump is a racist and if you’re supporting Donald Trump, you’re a racist too. When you say, “Trump 2020,” you’re saying “white power.”

Another Antifa Terrorist


cjones06062020

Last Sunday, Donald Trump tweeted, “The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.”

Trump’s tweet is more catnip for his base than policy. In fact, it’s not a policy because there is no real Antifa.

Conservatives love to say “antifa.” They don’t know what it means but they love it. They group all left-wing protesters in with Antifa and blame liberals for them. Antifa is a loose movement, not an organization. The people who usually describe themselves as Antifa often side with liberal ideals, like cops killing unarmed black men is wrong, but they engage in more hostile actions. While liberals want to elect better politicians and make policy changes, Antifa believes change only comes through anarchy and destruction. They break stuff and burn shit down. They want to see the world burn, much in the same way Donald Trump does. They are more anarchist than liberal. No liberal would EVER burn down a Starbucks. That would be like Geraldo Rivera burning down a Hooters.

I walked at least 30 blocks with protesters Monday night. I encountered them again through the walk back to my hotel. Everyone I talked and listened to was talking about change with policy. They talked about police reform. When they talked about rioting, it was, “Don’t do it.”

I did encounter looters. I saw a few people throw water bottles but honestly, I think they came from the windows above us and were aimed at the protesters. The looters I ran into were few. The protesters were in the thousands. I saw fewer than ten looters. In fact, maybe I saw five. I know there was more looting and vandalism in the city than five people, but they are still a minority among protesters. The people marching, even the ones saying hostile things to police and back and forth chants like, “NYPD/Suck My Dick,” are not Antifa in the way Donald Trump and Republicans like to describe them. None of them talked about hurting anyone. But they are antifascist.

As I said, Republicans love to use antifa as a boogeyman. Donald Trump seeks to use antifa to further the divide and fear in this nation. Donald Trump runs on fear. His idiot son and namesake, Donald Trump Jr. shared a screenshot on Instagram of a tweet from an antifa organization calling for violence. But, because he’s a racist idiot like his father, he was unaware there are no antifa organizations and what he shared was a fake account from…wait for it…a white nationalist group. Did Donald Trump Jr. later clarify, issue a correction, and apologize? What do you think? I bet the 2.8 million followers of his on Instragram, at least the ones who aren’t bots, still believe it was a real tweet from Antifa.

Antifa is anti-fascist. That’s why Donald Trump doesn’t like them and his designation of them as a terrorist organization is complete bullshit. You can’t designate an organization as a terrorist group if there’s no organization. He may as well label the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz as a terrorist organization. Basically, it’ll be a Trump tweet designation but no official government designation. But it’ll still go over well with his hateful base, especially with the racists, and they’ll believe it’s an official government declaration.

Donald Trump is supported by racists and Donald Trump supports them back. They may be the only group he’s truly loyal to. While he’s pandering to the religious right with a photo-op in front of a church he doesn’t attend with a Bible he’s never read, he believes in the racist agenda. He defends tiki-torch Nazis, makes racist comments, retweets racist organizations, and quotes distinguished racists from history. David Duke rejoiced and said it was the best thing for his racist cause when Donald Trump claimed there were “good people” marching with Nazis.

Attacking Antifa is a great way for Donald Trump to distract for white nationalists. Right-wing extremists, white nationalists, and neo-Nazis are responsible for the majority of terrorist attacks in this country. No conservative talks about that. And, unlike Antifa, they’re organized. They have leaders. Their little groups have names, chapters,uniforms, and people are designated with ranks. Donald Trump doesn’t tweet against white nationalists. You’ll never see a Trump tweet against Proud Boys. Instead, he hires white nationalists to create immigration policy in the White House.

Donald Trump is a racist and a white nationalist. Donald Trump is the biggest supporter of America’s most dangerous terrorists. He won’t even criticize them in a tweet.

Donald Trump is a fascist. While he’s screaming about violent anti-fascist, he’s tear-gassing and flash bombing peaceful protesters for a photo-op while curfews are going up and people are being arrested for going outside at night. This is fascism.

I refuse to lie down and allow the fascists to have this country. While I don’t believe in or encourage violence I am anti-fascist and I will continue to oppose the right-wing, militant, nationalistic, xenophobic, racist policies of Donald Trump.

I am Antifa. Come get me.

You Ain’t Black


cjones05282020

Over this weekend, pro-Trump goons and sycophants left comments underneath my cartoons demanding that I draw on Joe Biden’s gaffe where he said, “You Ain’t black.”

Apparently, some people think my cartoons are supposed to give equal time. Wrong. They think a cartoonist is not supposed to be biased. Wrong. They think a cartoon is supposed to be fair. Super duper wrong. I’m a liberal cartoonist. I hit the targets I believe deserve it and are a threat to the nation, which tend to be Republicans. Occasionally, that does mean I hit a Democrat. I am fiercely independent. I will never be a member of any party or campaign for a candidate. But, I will work to defeat a racist, stupid, dumbass TV reality host that shouldn’t be allowed on the White House tour, less enough living in the place.

Also, this isn’t open mic night where I take requests. Even the people who put money in my tip jar can’t demand I draw a specific cartoon. And I seriously doubt any of the right-wing goons have put anything in my tip jar other than poo and used condoms (I have to hose that thing a lot). But, there are times someone makes a good suggestion for a topic and I will hit it. But be careful what you wish for because you might get exactly what you deserve. So today’s cartoon is dedicated to every fucknut pro-Trump racist who told me to draw on Biden’s gaffe. Here’s to you, hypocrites.

Joe Biden made a huge gaffe. Even as they cringe, nobody is really surprised. Joe Biden says stupid shit. It’s what Joe Biden does. Biden was being interviewed by Charlamagne Tha God last Friday when the host said he might still have more “questions” for the Democratic nominee before election day. Biden replied, “You’ve got more questions? Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Ouch. Yikes. Eeks. No, Joe. No.

One of the many differences between Joe Biden and Donald Trump is that Biden can recognize when he said something stupid and instead of doubling-down, he’ll issue an apology. That’s something that goes against everything Donald Trump stands for. Joe Biden admonished himself for being “so cavalier” and said, “No one should have to vote for any party based on their race or religion or background.” Donald Trump still hasn’t apologized for defending tiki-torch Nazis or saying black women in America should go back to where they came from with his “send them back” comments. Nope. He doubled-down on that shit and led “send them back” chants at his hate rallies.

After Biden’s gaffe, the Trump campaign started selling T-Shirts with the hashtag “#youain’tblack” on them with Biden’s name underneath. I read somewhere they even created a website but I haven’t looked for it yet because one time, I went to David Duke’s website and I was in the shower for a week with a brillo pad trying to scrub it off me.

All profits from Trump’s hate shirts will go directly to re-electing Donald Trump and to the Trump Organization for campaign expenses.

But, campaigning for Donald Trump on the message that Joe Biden is a racist is like campaigning on the message Joe Biden gropes women. Really? Are they actually that obtuse, ignorant, and hypocritical in Trumpistan? Why, yes. Yes, they are.

The conservative media, like Fox News, went after the mainstream media for not covering it enough. But in the media’s defense, Donald Trump changed the subject.

Shortly after Biden’s remarks, instead of coasting on them and taking the weekend off, Donald Trump had to say something stupid. Something with even more potential for damage than “you ain’t black.” Donald Trump told his supporters to go to church and demanded the nation’s governors to reopen every church in the nation. Donald Trump advocated for worsening this health crisis.

And, instead of going to church himself on Sunday, like he advocated for the rest of the nation, Donald Trump’s morbidly-obese ass was on a golf course. Of course, it was a Trump golf course so he got to charge the Secret Service for golf cart rentals. Donald Trump admonished President Obama for golfing during the Ebola crisis…which killed two people in this country. Donald Trump golfed during the coronavirus crisis which has killed nearly 100,000 people. But, conservatives will focus on “you ain’t black.”

While his campaign was creating T-shirts, websites, and screaming about “you ain’t black,” and his followers were in church, Donald Trump was golfing tweeted a conspiracy theory about MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough being in a murder scandal, retweeted insults about Nancy Pelosi’s teeth, Stacey Abram’s weight, and one that called Hillary Clinton a “skank.” But “you ain’t black’ gets all the conservative outrage.

Nikki Haley tweeted, “I have struggled with Biden’s recent remarks. They were gut wrenchingly condescending.” So far, she hasn’t “struggled” with Donald Trump’s “gun-wrenchingly condescending remark calling a woman a “skank.”

I saw a headline over a column in The New York Post saying Biden will lose the black vote. I didn’t click the link because I’m out of brillo pads, but Biden is NOT going to lose the black vote.

Joe Biden is NOT a racist. Joe Biden’s biggest offense is that he is taking the black vote for granted. His greatest danger is not generating enthusiasm. That’s not just a problem with black voters. That’s an issue with all voters. And don’t restart you’re crying about Bernie again. This wouldn’t have happened with Bernie? This wouldn’t have happened with my choice either, Kamala Harris. But hey, maybe this gaffe will move Biden to select a vice-presidential candidate like Harris instead of going the safe route with someone like Amy Klobuchar who would appeal to white moderate voters but do little for the black vote. Joe, don’t pick one of the whitest women from one of the whitest states. Please.

Biden will not lose the black vote but his greatest danger is that it will be diminished over comments like, “You ain’t black.” Our greatest danger from that is the re-election of racist Donald Trump who said “Very fine people” marched with Nazis and “Send them back.”

Biggest Crime In American History


cjones05172020

Donald Trump has been on a Tweetstorm of late, even more so than usual. Even more deranged than usual. On at least one day this week, he tweeted or retweeted over 100 times. I’m a political cartoonist self-isolating with nothing to do but watch TV, draw cartoons, and eat, and eat, and eat, and eat…and even I couldn’t find the time to tweet 100 times day, not that I’d want to. But the President (sic) of the United States of America, in the midst of a pandemic, has time to retweet Rose McGowan.

A big part of the current tweet pandemic from Trump is conspiracy theories. Donald Trump loves him some conspiracy theories. His foray into politics was the conspiracy theory that President Obama was born in Kenya. That never panned out for him, as in proving it, but it helped establish him to racist America that he’s their guy. He’s still their guy as a lot of these recent tweets accuse President Obama of committing the “biggest crime in American history.”

What is this “biggest crime in American history” that President Obama committed? Don’t know. But it has something to do with President Obama committing a coup against Trump’s presidency before Trump was president or some “deep state” shit like that. Trump is saying everyone in his administration who helped President Obama attack Trump deserves jail time.

President Obama expressed concern the past weekend over the Justice Department just dropping all charges against Trump goon Michael Flynn. He also described Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic as “chaos.” This is what set Trump off.

In Trump world, a man who pleads guilty to lying to the FBI and had secret contacts with Russians in an attempt to undermine American foreign policy (that’s a coup attempt) should be let off. But conspiracy theories should send a man to jail.

So, what are the crimes President Obama committed? Shortly after taking office, Trump accused President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower. You know that place, Trump Tower. It’s where Trump has a penthouse that looks like Goldmember decorated it after becoming a crack addict. It’s that place where Donald Trump gets his taco bowls on Cinco de Mayo. It’s where Donald Trump had his campaign headquarters. It’s where he jacked up the rent to the Secret Service who needed space there to protect Trump’s orange ass. It’s also that place where Donald Trump Jr. invited Russians into to provide dirt on their political opponent. But, as it turns out, President Obama NEVER wiretapped Trump Tower.

So, what are President Obama’s crimes?

First, President Obama is smarter than Donald Trump. President Obama is better looking. President Obama is cooler. President Obama is was a much better president than Donald Trump. And…people like President Obama a hell of a lot more than they will EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER………EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVER…like Donald Trump.

President Obama never created a crisis. President Obama never had personal scandals. President Obama never conducted tweetstorms. President Obama never accused his opponents of being criminals. President Obama never called people, especially those in law enforcement, “human scum.” President Obama never legitimized dictators. President Obama never kissed Vladimir Putin’s ass. President Obama never downplayed a pandemic. President Obama never lost over 33 million American jobs. President Obama never lost over 82,000 American lives.

Mitch McConnell, that failure of a Senate Majority Leader, cried during an online chat with Lara Trump (really?), over President Obama. McTurtle Moscow Mitch said, “Clearly the Obama administration did not leave to this administration any kind of game plan for something like this.” Except, that’s exactly what President Obama did.

President Obama didn’t just leave a “game plan.” President Obama’s Security Council left a 69-page “game plan” titled, the “Playbook for Early Response to High-Consequence Emerging Infectious Disease Threats and Biological Incidents.” In fact, President Obama warned of future pandemics during a speech. President Obama said a global pandemic could strike us in five years. When was this speech? FIVE years ago.

Let me repeat that: President Obama left a “game plan” book for future pandemics and predicted FIVE years ago that a pandemic could hit us in FIVE years. Also, Donald Trump has been president (sic) for the past three-plus years. Ugh. The only obstacle for the Trump administration with that “game plan” book is that it has words and pages and requires reading. Reportedly, there’s not one pop-up or photo of Donald Trump in that book to get Donald Trump’s attention. Thanks, Obama.

Donald Trump howls that President Obama didn’t leave him a vaccine for Covid-19, despite there not being a Covid-19 in existence at that time. President Obama also didn’t leave a game plan to prepare for Godzilla and Martians. Republicans also cry President Obama didn’t leave a stockpile of medical supplies, despite the fact they were the ones who voted against and prevented him from doing so.

It’s funny. When the GOP complains other people didn’t help them prepare for the pandemic, they’re admitting their response is a disaster. When they complain President Obama didn’t prepare for them, they ignore the unfortunate fact they’ve had the White House for the past three and a half years.

When they complain President Obama didn’t prepare them for a pandemic, they’re admitting Donald Trump isn’t qualified to handle a pandemic. By their argument, President Obama should have realized, years before 2016, that a nutless orange shitgibbon would become President (sic) of the United States of America, so we better prepare for that. President Obama failed in not preparing the government to handle a racist toddler in the White House. President Obama should have prepared because obviously, leaving the likes of Donald Trump and Republicans in charge is like leaving the dog to babysit. Except, the dog probably wouldn’t throw the baby in jail and give all the groceries to corporations. Also, the dog wouldn’t be nearly as racist as Donald Trump and Republicans.

President Obama did prepare for a pandemic. Donald Trump did not. When Donald Trump was in the casino business, Donald Trump failed to prepare for the disaster that is Donald Trump. Donald Trump’s daddy spent millions attempting to bail out Trump’s failing casinos and now Donald Trump is complaining President Obama didn’t bail him out on the pandemic. But, Donald Trump still put his name on those stimulus checks.

Currently, Donald Trump’s case of hiding his taxes from the American public is before the Supreme Court. We never had that problem with President Obama because he never hid his taxes.

It is not President Obama’s fault he’s better than Donald Trump. It’s not his fault he’s smarter, cooler, better looking, is more accomplished, more eloquent, and has more class than Donald Trump. It’s not President Obama’s fault Donald Trump and Republicans do not know how to govern. Who knew a racist reality TV show host who steals from charities and bankrupts casinos would be a disaster as president. Oh, yeah. President Obama knew because he predicted that too when he said Donald Trump is “uniquely unqualified” for the presidency. He also made a prediction personally to Donald Trump when he advised, “do NOT hire Michael Flynn.”

When asked by a reporter what crime President Obam committed that qualifies at the “biggest crime in American history,” Donald Trump said, “You know what the crime is. The crime is very obvious to everybody.”

It sure is obvious. Just like Ahmaud Arbery’s crime was obvious to those two racist Georgia rednecks.

Ask China


cjones05162020

OK. I’ll bite. Hey, China. Why is Donald Trump such a racist?

During yesterday’s shitshow disguised as a press conference, Trump deflected from his agenda of boasting about himself and lying about the “success story” that is his response to the coronavirus, to once again demonstrate to the nation that he is a huge racist.

I have been wondering for the past month while Donald Trump keeps comparing our nation’s testing with that of other nations. I question this like I question why everyone in his administration has to say, “Thank you for your leadership.” I also ask myself, “Is that how someone stands while wearing lifts and an adult diaper?” But The competition question came back to me yesterday as the entire conference was about comparing the United States’ numbers with those of other countries (of course, there were lies about those). I’m very happy to report that I’m not alone in asking this question. A reporter for CBS asked the question.

A White House correspondent for CBS News asked Donald Trump, “Why is this a global competition when, every day, Americans are still losing their lives?”

Trump responded to the White House correspondent with, “They’re losing their lives everywhere in the world, and maybe that’s a question you should ask China. Don’t ask me, ask China that question, OK.”

Of course, Trump had to overemphasize and do that slight pause he habitually does before giving a hard pronunciation to “China.” “And maybe that’s a question you should ask…CHINA.”

Have you ever wanted to visit…CHINA? Do you know anyone from…CHINA? One of my best friends took his mom to…CHINA. Did you know the president of….CHINA…is named…XI?

If you figure out what Donald Trump’s tick is with…CHINA, let me know. But, we’re not here to talk about that. We’re here to talk about his racism, like when he keeps reminding us the coronavirus came from…CHINA.

When Donald Trump told the reporter to “ask…CHINA,” was he being a bully? Was he being sexist because the reporter is a female? Or…wait for it…was he being racist?

Was he being racist in asking the correspondent to ask…CHINA? What does China have to do with Donald Trump making it a global competition? Why should anyone ask China or any nation why Donald Trump keeps comparing our numbers to other nations…yesterday it was mostly South Korea and Germany. Hey, China…why does Donald Trump keep comparing the U.S. testing numbers with those of South Korea and Germany? It doesn’t make much sense to ask China, does it?

Oh, I get it. It does make sense in a very stupid sort of way if you’re a racist. See, I forgot to mention something. The reporter Donald Trump told to “ask China” about why he thinks it’s a global competition is…wait for it…a Chinese American. He asked her to ask China as if she has China on speed dial. Was someone in China to interrupt their dinner with, “Excuse me while I put down my egg roll and chopsticks and take this call. It’s from Weijia. My fortune cookie told me she’d call today.” Fun fact: Egg rolls and fortune cookies were invented in the United States…just like most Chinese food you order in an American restaurant. And while racism wasn’t invented in the United States or even by white people, white people like Donald Trump have perfected it.

Weijia Jiang is a White House correspondent for CBS News. She was born in Xiamen, China, and raised in West Virginia. If you’re going to stereotype her, she probably listens to bluegrass and says phrases like, “Up around the holler.” She attended the University of William and Mary and Syracuse University. Another fun fact about Jiang is…she doesn’t take much shit.

After Donald Trump told her, a Chinese-American, to ask…CHINA, she asked, “Sir, why are you saying that to me specifically?” Donald Trump, got upset, not because he doesn’t know the word “specifically,” but because she asked him a “nasty” question.

That’s another tick of his. Trump insults men too. He goes off on male reporters from time to time, but he’s extra hard on female reporters. He once goaded a crowd to harass MSNBC’s Katy Tur at one of his hate rallies to the point she needed police protection to leaver the building. But he especially goes hard on female reporters who aren’t white. And when he’s upset by women, he uses the term “nasty.” He used it against Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Carmen Cruz, Mazie Hirono, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, the Prime Minister of Denmark when she wouldn’t sell him Greenland, and he used it yesterday on Weijia Jiang.

And after his testy exchange with Jiang, Donald Trump ran away like a little coward.

The people who believe Donald Trump is not a racist are the same jerks who thinks he’s a tough guy while running away from a woman’s question.

Yesterday’s exchange was reminiscent of the time he told White House correspondent April Ryan to gather together the Congressional Black Caucus and set up a meeting with Trump. April Ryan works for American Urban Radio Networks. She’s black. Donald Trump thinks all black people know each other. Maybe she can ask Colin Kaepernick to stop kneeling. Maybe April Ryan can tell Dwane Johnson we’ve had enough Fast & Furious movies. Maybe she can tell Lebron James and Stephen Curry to stop saying “nasty” thing about Trump. Maybe April can tell Samuel L. Jackson to stop saying “motherfucker” all the time like, “that’s one racist motherfucker.” She must know all of them because each of them is black, right? Racist motherfucker Donald Trump thinks so.

But since we’re now going to ask…CHINA questions that don’t have anything to do with them, let’s ask them this:

Hey….CHINA. Why is racism not a dealbreaker for Trump supporters?

I don’t know about…China, but Sam will probably tell us, “Because they’re all racist motherfuckers.”

Trump Pro-Something-Something Rally


cjones01292020

Sometimes I go a while without having a conversation, not a screaming match, with a member of the Trump cult. For starters, I forget that they don’t realize they’re in a cult.

A couple days ago one of my nephews posted a story from 2017 with a headline that Donald Trump made March 29, Vietnam Veterans Day, an official holiday. Immediately, my spidey sense tingled. It didn’t sound right to me because for starters, I hadn’t heard of it yet. It also didn’t sound right because it seemed to come from a legitimate publication, Military.com. But apparently, Military.com has joined the cult and they don’t put any research into their articles.

So, I told my nephew that it wasn’t an actual holiday. In fact, Obama made the same declaration, recognizing the date as a commemoration, but it was just for 2012. Trump did make it for every year. But still, it’s a commemoration, not a holiday. Why is that? Because Donald Trump, nor any president of the United States of America, is a king. It takes a literal act of Congress to make an official federal holiday. A president can make as many declarations as he wants but they’re all pretty much empty except if you’re a Republican, it’ll get you a headline in Military.com by a reporter and editor who don’t do research.

I explained the act of Congress thing to my nephew because it’d be nice to have someone other than myself, my older brother, and my niece as informed people in our family. The rest are total fucknuts. I tried not to be confrontational and my nephew was cordial in return, but he explained why Trump didn’t make it an official holiday. It’s because Donald Trump didn’t want to give federal workers another free day off.

Again, I explained the act of Congress thing. Nephew understood that but again explained how Trump was looking out for the taxpayers and didn’t make it an official holiday. I let it go. It’s a lost cause. But you see what the cult does, right?

They can’t acknowledge Donald Trump can’t do something on his own. They also make up some bullshit because I guarantee you my nephew (who has met Donald Trump and posted a stomach-churning photo of it on Facebook that I should be commended for not commenting on) never heard him say he’s going to commemorate Vietnam Veterans Day, but not make it an official holiday in order to save taxpayers’ money. But he believes Donald Trump isn’t who Donald Trump really is, and instead sees him as someone who cares about him.

Here’s the thing. Donald Trump does not care about you. Donald Trump only cares about Donald Trump. The people who don’t get that are those in the Trump cult, like members of the pro-life movement.

Donald Trump visited an anti-choice, pro-women-persecution rally and the fucknuts went nuts. Trump spoke for 13 minutes and as usual, sang his own praises. He said, “Unborn children have never had a stronger defender in the White House.” And he claimed, “They are coming after me because I am fighting for you.” No, you orange glowing idiot. We’re coming after you because you’re a racist conman tearing the nation apart and you’re trying to steal another election with the help of Russia.

The anti-choice fuckos love Donald Trump because he does what they do. He lies about abortion (like he does about everything else). He makes false claims about abortion laws, like a New York law that “would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb right up until delivery” or that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam would “execute a baby after birth.” Those are lies. Anti-choice people are huge Project Veritas fans, the outlet that creates fake videos on Planned Parenthood and other issues. They’re gotcha! videos they have to manipulate. But like pointing out facts about Donald Trump, the cult ignores facts about Veritas too.

Donald Trump, who once described himself as “very pro-choice,” doesn’t care about abortion any more than he cares about Vietnam Veterans. Donald Trump was grandstanding to feed his base. And it works because his base is stupid.

There were memes and thank-yous all over social media yesterday to Donald Trump for being the first president to visit a “pro-choice” rally. But let me point something out to you. He’s also the first president to support a Russian leader’s bullshit over U.S. intelligence agencies’ facts, which is something no Soviet leader ever received during the Cold War. He’s the first president to meet with a leader of North Korea, thus legitimizing him and his brutal regime.

Congratulations, anti-choice fucknuts. You have now received the same credibility and legitimacy as Kim Jong Un. Use it wisely.

And why did I use the Klan for this reference? Because Donald Trump is a racist and when it comes to the “pro-life” movement and the KKK, tomayto-tomahto.

Racist Orange Pig


cjones08032019

Republicans argue that accusing them of racism is similar to the boy who cried wolf. They accuse liberals of playing the race card against them as a cheap defense against criticism. They continue to make this argument without any hint of detecting their own hypocrisy by ignoring Donald Trump’s accusation of racism against “the Squad” and Congressman Elijah Cummings. But, if you’re a Republican, you have to ignore a lot of what Donald Trump says.

Writing for The Hill, media reporter Joe Concha argues that being accused of racism comes with the territory, and quotes Lindsey Graham who said, “Something I have learned: If you are a Republican nominee for President – or President – you will be accused of being a racist.” Concha excluded Graham’s quotes when he said during the 2016 Republican presidential primaries, “Donald Trump is a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot.” For Republicans, cowardice and hypocrisy “come with the territory.”

Republicans ask, “Why are you always accusing us of being racist?” I’ll answer that with a question. Why are you always being racist?

Donald Trump isn’t just a racist. He also believes his racism should be his 2020 presidential platform. While casting the Democratic Party as the party of socialism, he and his supporters are making the Republican Party the party of racists, if they weren’t that already. In 2016, Trump supporters retweeted Russian troll farm lies that the Pope had endorsed Trump. That was false, but he did score the Nazi publication The Daily Stormer endorsement.

Trump is sore about Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings criticizing his handling of the border situation and throwing children into jail. Saturday, Fox News ran a segment attacking Cummings and his representation of Baltimore, showing the city, as their guest with ready-made video said, one of “abandoned rowhomes filled with trash, homeless addicts, empty needles” and as a place “attracting rodents and cockroaches.” An hour later, Trump echoed the dogma and said the city was “rat and rodent-infested” and a place “no human being would want to live.” This, two weeks after he told four brown, female representatives to “go back to where they came from.”

Of course, Republicans are arguing that none of this is racist, ignoring the history of using “go back where you came from” to minorities in this nation. They also seem to be unaware of Trump’s history with the word “infested” when tweeting about people of color.

Is Trump comparing people of color to disease-carrying vermin? Trump has tweeted the word “infested,” “infest,” or “infestation” eight times, five since his inauguration. Each time, he’s used it when attacking minorities.

Six days before his inauguration, Trump attacked Congressman John Lewis (who is black and a civil rights leader), and described his district as “crime-infested.” The district is 58% black.

Later that same day, Trump described all inner cities in the U.S. as “crime-infested.”

In April of 2018, Trump tweeted that sanctuary cities in California are “crime-infested and breeding.”

June 19, 2018, Trump accused Democrats of wanting illegal immigrants to “pour into and infest our country.” On June 3, he used “infestation” for MS-13.

Back in 2014, he tweeted about “Ebola infested areas of Africa” and that Americans who visit these “infested” areas would “bring the plaque back to the U.S.”

Two weeks ago during his racist tweets at the four Democratic congresswomen, he demanded that they “go back to” the “crime-infested” places from which they came.

While tweeting that he’s not a racist, Trump retweeted a British columnist who promotes the White Genocide conspiracy theory (that immigration is used solely as a mean of wiping out the white race), who used Trump’s own term while describing Baltimore as a “proper shithole.” As proven multiple times by his supporters, it’s really hard to defend a racist argument when you’re stupid.

Donald Trump is a racist. You can’t defend it. As the example above shows, who better to defend Trump from accusations of racism than white people? Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld points out the good things Trump has done for black Americans, as though having a black friend is a get out of racism jail free card. Last week, a conservative cartoonist cast one white guy telling another white guy to leave his house as the equivalent of telling four minority women to “go back to where they came from.” These people can’t think sophistically and aren’t smart enough to be pundits. Just like Donald Trump isn’t sophisticated or smart enough to be president.

I’ve been to Baltimore on multiple occasions. I don’t live that far from it. Like most major cities, there are good and bad areas. I’ve seen both in that city. I wouldn’t call it “infested” by any means, though there are a lot of crabs. But I know this. The White House is infested with racist pigs.

Creative note: Oddly enough, it’s really hard to draw a pig without it coming out cute. Friend and fellow cartoonist, Stacy Curtis, has a thing about drawing pigs with banjos. I’m sure there’s a reason why but I don’t know what it is but his artwork is amazing. I had him in mind when I was drawing this pig but I refused to look at any of his work during because that would have “infested” my drawing. I really wanted my pig to come out nasty and disgusting. Did I succeed?

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?
