Steve Bannon

Cake For Bannon


Steve Bannon has been sentenced to four months in jail for refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena. His prison sentence is about two and a half terms of Liz Truss being prime minister (yes, that was a cartoon idea but I had already done enough on her). Bannon is allowed to appeal, but he gets to roam free and keep gooning while that process plays out. In fact, gooning is exactly what he did on the sidewalk outside the courthouse.

He said, “On November 8, there’s going to (be) judgment on the illegitimate Biden regime. And quite frankly, Nancy Pelosi and the entire committee.” He added that voters will be “weighing and measuring” the actions of the FBI as well as the congressional investigation into January 6.

Bannon is a white nationalist champion of the deep-state conspiracy theory. He’s unapologetic for being a fascist fuck and violating the law, believing he’s above it.

He had no right to defy a congressional subpoena. There is no executive privilege since he wasn’t working for the White House for the period the January 6 Committee wants to ask him about. He’s not a lawyer so he can’t claim attorney-client privilege. All he’s claiming is a privilege. He believes it’s his white privilege not to comply with a congressional subpoena. And he’s been given a privilege by not being ordered to go to jail immediately.

He also says voters will be “weighing and measuring” the actions of the FBI in November. This is some real gaslighting. The FBI did its job. Donald Trump was given the privilege to comply with the National Archives’ request and the Department of Justice’s demands that he return files. He kept lying, evading, and obstructing justice. Is the government supposed to let Trump steal classified documents and store them in the basement of his country club? Also, the FBI is NOT on the ballot.

Bannon claimed the Biden administration is illegitimate. That is false. President Joe Biden was elected by a majority of American voters and he won the Electoral College. It’s also a lie to say the committee or Speaker Pelosi aren’t legitimate. But I guess if you’re a fascist, you believe elections aren’t legitimate. In Bannon’s view, the only people who should hold power in this country are those who steal elections, not those elected by the people.

Bannon was also fined $200,000, but that’s nothing to him. He’s already fundraising off this, playing the white victim persecuted by the “deep state.” Fundraising is part of what Bannon did to be convicted in the past, for which Trump gave him a pardon.

Steve Bannon is a lying corrupt racist yet his supporters can’t see it…or they refuse to see it. You have to have some very low standards and fucked-up values to believe in Steve Bannon. In fact, you have to be a white supremacist to cry for Steve Bannon. He will lose his appeal, go to prison, and probably join a prison gang of Aryans. He might enjoy prison.

Bannon is going to prison to build his street cred with MAGA, and in a way, he’s going to prison for Donald Trump. I’m waiting for the day when Donald Trump goes to prison for Trump.

Creative Note: This idea has been used before in cartoons, so much so that I don’t think anyone can claim it. It’s kinda like the coat hanger on the top of the Supreme Court building cartoon that a thousand cartoonists have done. But I thought this cake/file cartoon was very appropriate for the subjects of Trump stealing classified files and Bannon needing a cake with a file in it.

Bannon Perp Walk


A Grifter’s gotta grift, and this grifter may possibly be grifting his way into a state prison.

Steve Bannon, former chairman of neo-Nazi publication Breitbart and former chief racist advisor for neo-Nazi president (sic) Donald Trump, has been indicted for the second time on a scheme to defraud stupid MAGAts to make donations to “build the wall.”

Did I say second time? Yes, I did. Bannon was previously indicted on federal charges for this scheme to defraud racist Trump-supporting stupid fuckers, but stupid fucker Trump pardoned him when he was actually president (sic), and not afterward when he was pretend president.

Bannon is also facing charges for failing to comply with a congressional subpoena.

New York prosecutors say Bannon played an integral role in an organization known as We Build the Wall Inc, which was designed to bilk Trumpers to fulfill their hero’s pledge to build a racist wall on our border with Mexico. Except, when racist Trump made that racist promise, and as the central theme of his racist presidential campaign, he told us Mexico would pay for it.

During the Trump presidency (sic), Mexico never sent one peso to pay for the wall and Congress never provided funding. Instead, Trump raided the Defense Department’s budget to build the wall. By the time Trump fled Washington with his tail between his legs on President Biden’s inauguration day, only 82 miles of the wall were constructed where there was no barrier previously. According to Customs and Border Control, 452 were built but minus that 80, all of that was funded by previous administrations (Bush and Obama) to replace existing barriers.

The irony Trumpers don’t get is that by donating money to a private source to build the wall, they’re admitting Trump failed at delivering his promise. Also, what was the plan for a private organization to start building a wall on the southern border where they have no authority? They raised $25 million on a promise to build a wall they can’t build. Did I mention MAGAts are stupid?

You don’t own the libs by allowing yourself to be grifted by racist smelly fascists.

Prosecutors claim Bannon funneled more than $100,000 in donations to the organization’s president, Brian Kolfage, who had repeatedly promised not to take a salary. State Attorney General Letitia James said Bannon also profited off the scheme.

Bannon was charged by the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin L. Bragg, with two felony counts of money laundering, two felony counts of conspiracy, and one felony count of a scheme to defraud, and could face a maximum sentence of five to 15 years on the most serious charge.

The United States Constitution says you can’t be tried twice for the same crime. While Bannon did a lot of “in your face” to liberals when Trump pardoned him, his charges in New York don’t qualify as double jeopardy because Trump pardoned him BEFORE there was a federal trial. As Nelson Muntz would say, “Ha-ha!”

James said, “Regular, everyday Americans play by these rules, and yet too often powerful political interests, they ignore these rules. They think they are above the law, and the most egregious of them take advantage.” MAGA fuckers do believe they’re above the law. Look at the Mar-a-Lago case. MAGAts are screaming that Donald Trump should be allowed to steal government secrets and sell them to Russians and Saudis. They equate Trump stealing government documents to not returning library books, which makes sense to people who have never been to a library.

Evidence in the federal trial of one of the group’s founders this year showed that $380,000 was transferred to a nonprofit controlled by Bannon in 2019. Then, hundreds of thousands went to Kolfage and to Bannon. In February and March of 2019, more than $330,000 was transferred from Bannon’s nonprofit’s bank account to Bannon’s personal bank account.

I believe the term for this is “grifting,” but if you prefer “swindling,” we can go with that.

Bannon claims it’s all a political conspiracy against him. While it is true people don’t like Nazis, this isn’t a political conspiracy against him. There are laws against grifting, despite the fact that Trump keeps escaping prison time for doing it himself (Trump charity, Trump University, Trump Organization, etc, etc.).

Bannon said he’s being targeted for building “the dominant platform in all media for grassroots participation” and that prosecutors want to take him down ahead of “the most important midterm election since 1862, since the Civil War,” when his side lost fighting to preserve slavery.

During Bannon’s perp walk, he said, “They’ll have to kill me first. I’ve not yet begun to fight”

How much do you want to bet that Bannon goes to prison without being killed? These people are cowards. They’re really good at calling for others to fight and to go to prison for their fascist causes, but them…not so much.

Just as Trump believes he’s “making America great again” by trying to steal an election, have himself installed as Oompa-Loopma dictator, and steal government documents to sell to our enemies, Steve Bannon believes he’s saving America by grifting Trumpers. Holy shit. He might be right.

If Steve Bannon grifts MAGAts out of all their money so he can buy more shirts to wear all at once, then those Trumpers won’t have any left to buy guns and gasoline for driving across the nation for insurrections and Molotov cocktails.

Bannon is a racist, fascist, Nazi crook. So is Donald Trump. Hopefully soon, these lovers of racist walls will be surrounded by walls.

Trading For Brittney


Why can’t we trade Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, and Tucker Carlson to Russia for WNBA star Brittney Griner?

Brittney Griner was wrongly imprisoned. Even in a fascist oppressive state like Russia where the justice system is less consistent than Facebook’s algorithms, nobody should be sent to prison for possessing a little hemp oil. At the most, they should have given her a tiny fine. But what Russia is doing is holding Brittney, not as a prisoner, but as a hostage. They are using her as leverage to get something they want from the United States. This is a terrorist act. We are negotiating with terrorists. So, let’s give them some terrorists.

Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, and Tucker Carlson have all supported terrorists. They’re great big fans of the white nationalist terrorist attack on our Capitol to overturn an election and make our nation more like Russia. They love Russia and fascism just as much as they love white nationalist terrorists.

There’s a pro-Trump goon on GoComics who always refers to me as “Comrade Clay” in an attempt to insult me, you know…because liberals are commies like Russia was back in the 80s, or some shit like that. But the people who have boners for Russia today aren’t liberals. They’re MAGAts. They love Putin. They love Russia. They love fascism. White nationalists see Russia as the last bastion of white purity.

These people love to tell us that if we don’t love America, then we should leave, yet they’re the ones whacking off to Russia.

Right now, we’re negotiating to release a Russian terrorist to Putin. Giving Putin Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, and Tucker Carlson would be the same thing.

And, they should all want to go to Russia. Donald Trump worships and idolizes Putin. Steve Bannon is the poster child for American white nationalism and fascism. Paul Manafort was a lobbyist and political consultant for Russian proxies in Ukraine. Michael Flynn was literally paid by Russia. Our nation would just be better off without Roger Stone. And Tucker Carlson wonders why he should hate Putin and choose Ukraine over Russia. He doesn’t have to. Let’s send them all to Russia.

The only obstacle to this plan is that Russia won’t want them. Why would they? What can they do for Russia in Russia? They do a better job of serving Putin’s interests here in the United States, by trying to destroy the United States.

MAGAts always point out that Russia didn’t invade Ukraine while Trump was president (sic). True, but that’s because he didn’t have to. Trump was already trying to destroy NATO for Putin. Invading Ukraine during that time would have been counterproductive for them.

KY Patriot (seriously, that’s his name), another MAGAt on Truth Social, commented on my last cartoon on Brittney Griner saying that if Trump was president, she would be free by now because Trump and Putin are friends. He then wrote “Fuck Brittney and fuck Ukraine.”

Yeah, Trump and Putin are friends. That’s a good thing, to be pals with a fascist? Also, since he wants Brittney to stay in Russia, why is he bragging that Trump would free her? Also, since Trump could convince Putin to free Brittney, why didn’t he get Putin to release Paul Whelan? Whelan was abducted by Russia while Trump was in the White House.

This MAGAt hatred for Brittney is interesting. I saw a post by a goon on Facebook that Brittney deserves to be incarcerated in Russia and shouldn’t be allowed to return to this nation because she’s criticized it in the past. Meanwhile, they’re wearing caps that literally say America is not great. Consistency is a huge problem for MAGAts.

When Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly told Trump that Putin was a “killer” during an interview in 2017, Trump rushed to Putin’s defense and said, “There are a lot of killers. We have a lot of killers. Well, you think our country is so innocent?

You can criticize and love the United States. Closing your eyes and plugging your ears while singing “nanananananana” doesn’t fix anything.

But sending fascist MAGAt goons to Russia in a trade for Brittney would fix a LOT of shit. I think my proposal has merit. Since they love Russia so much, they should go live in Russia.

Bannon’s Peers


I’m going to be honest with you, and more importantly, myself. This cartoon is low-hanging fruit. Making fun of Steve Bannon is just too easy. He’s an ugly fascist racist who looks like he’s coming off a three-day bender and has never heard of the shower concept. But, I also feel like I have a responsibility to call out unwashed fascist racists who helped plot and instigate an insurrection and who’s continued to lie ever since claiming Donald Trump won the election he lost.

Outside the federal courthouse in Washington, D.C. where his trial is taking place, Steve Bannon challenged January 6 Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson to come to the trial, which is pretty rich since the trial is about Steve Bannon refusing to go to Congress and testify. Also, Bennie Thompson hasn’t been called as a witness to Bannon’s trial. It seems a guy claiming the charges against him are a “constitutional crisis” would understand that.

Maybe this is Bannon’s defense. The judge ruled he can’t cite executive privilege as a reason for not complying with a congressional subpoena, so perhaps he’s trying to demonstrate that he doesn’t understand how subpoenas work. Seriously, he’s going to cry that Thompson isn’t at the trial while his side has not issued a subpoena for Thompson to testify. The problem for Steve Bannon in this regard is that he’s not stupid.

Steve Bannon is not stupid. He’s evil. He’s a strategist and a liar. He’s a white nationalist fascist who’s trying to destroy democracy in our nation and install a dictatorship. But he’s not stupid. He knows what he’s trying to do.

Ok. Maybe Bannon is a little stupid for defying the subpoena and risking going to prison for Donald Trump, unless he thinks the exposure from it is worth it. It’s not. Sure, white male conservative racists are always claiming they’re being persecuted when they’re not, and it often works with their base, but it’s not worth prison. I don’t think you can “own the libs” by eating jail food.

The thing is, Bannon could have complied with the subpoena and refused to answer questions. Even fellow Trump pardoned goon Michael Flynn complied with a subpoena and took the fifth to very basic questions like, “Do you believe presidents should be elected or installed through fascist coups?”.

Prosecutors believe they have a slamdunk and have already rested their case after only calling two witnesses. The defense will make its case today and then both sides will deliver closing arguments. This isn’t the OJ trial.

Bannon is not on trial here for his part in the insurrection. There may be charges related to that later, and I hope he is charged along with goons like Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump. Bannon is only on trial here for defying a congressional subpoena. Bannon is probably going to jail and Trump can’t pardon him this time.

So, yeah. This cartoon is low-hanging fruit but I think it’s OK since Bannon has made himself the low-hanging fruit. He’s made himself an easy target.

I also think this cartoon is justified as it’s already been flagged by Donald Trump’s social media platform, Truth Social, for being “sensitive.” It’s currently under review and I can’t wait to see how that works out.

I think I’m justified in drawing this cartoon when Donald Trump says I have total freedom of speech on his platform unless I insult unwashed fascist racist coup generators.

A Fifth For Bannon


Lying white nationalist racist goon Steve Bannon is now ready to testify before the January 6 committee investigating Donald Trump’s failed coup attempt.

Bannon previously refused to comply with a congressional subpoena from the committee, which prompted it to refer contempt charges to the Justice Department, which then obliged and charged Bannon. Bannon’s reasoning for not complying was that executive privilege had been invoked by Donald Trump.

Believing this is just a stunt, the Justice Department is still going to prosecute Steve Bannon despite his willingness to testify now. The other juicy detail of this is that he never actually had executive privilege.

Donald Trump published a letter supposedly revoking executive privilege in this case even though he’s not president now or when he supposedly invoked it. As it turns out, he never officially did.

This morning, D.C. prosecutors announced that Trump’s attorney, Justin Clark, had been interviewed by the FBI on June 29 and had confirmed Trump had never invoked executive privilege to stop Bannon from testifying. Oops.

When Bannon joined fellow goons in the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. to help plan the white nationalist insurrection to overturn an election Donald Trump lost, he was not a White Staffer or a government employee. He was just a member of the goon squad.

Bannon already received one pardon from Trump for scamming MAGAts with a scheme to build Trump’s racist border wall. Remember how Mexico was supposed to pay for it? Yeah, Bannon’s scheme was that Trump supporters were to pay for it. But now, former president (sic) Donald Trump can’t pardon Bannon for the crimes of sedition.

The good news for Bannon is that when he goes to prison, there are gangs there that may welcome his membership, though the bad news is that the Aryans may require him to shave his head. That’s not gonna be pretty.

The other good news for Bannon is that when he does go to prison, he may have some company. Perhaps there will be enough MAGAts for him and Trump to create their white nationalist gang.

Nothing But The No-Truth


CjonesRGB11262021

You can’t expect a Trump cultist to straight up tell the truth, but you can get the truth out of them if you understand Trump talk. It’s pretty simple actually. If a Trumper says someone did something, that means they did it. If they say there’s election fraud, it’s their election fraud. “Election integrity” means making it harder for minorities to vote. If they say they have a “black friend,” that means they’re racist. When they say they’re “constitutionalists,” that means “let’s destroy the Constitution.” When one of them says he’s the “best negotiator” ever, it means he’d trade all of our nuclear secrets to Vladimir Putin for a Happy Meal. “Grab them by the pussy” means grab them by the pussy.

So, what does the January 6 Committee hope to gain from sending subpoenas a bunch of gaslighting liars? The first thing they might get is having all these jackholes sent to prison. Steve Bannon, who was not a member of the Trump administration at the time of the white nationalist insurrection, or a lawyer, claimed executive privilege. He’s not even an executive. All he can claim is white privilege (dammit. Another cartoonist is going to read this blog and steal that). Now, he’s facing some serious jail time.

Mark Meadows was Trump’s chief-of-staff at the time and he has a better argument than Bannon does for executive privilege…and even then, his argument sucks. Here’s the thing, kids (and it’s going to come as a shock to some of you), Donald Trump is NOT president.

No, Donald Trump is not president because he lost the election to the man who is now president, Joe Biden. President Joe Biden beat Donald Trump by over seven million votes. He beat Trump’s ass like he owned it though not literally. Nobody wants to own that ass. But anyway, if you’re NOT president, you can’t cite executive privilege. Even then you can’t claim executive privilege for anything you want. It’s not a rich baby’s candy store.

But it’s the current president, Joe Biden because he spanked that ass, who can claim executive privilege. And in this case, he said, “Nope.” But, Trumpers don’t believe him because they don’t believe in the Constitution. We only have one president at a time, and it’s not Trump…because he lost a free and fair election to Joe Biden. Again, he spanked that orange ass.

So, Mark Meadows will not get away without testifying. Meadows was a big part of the Big Lie. He even tried to get the Justice Department to investigate voting machines being tampered with by Italian Satellites. I think the Justice Department officials who read Meadow’s memo should be forced to testify too…so they can tell us how hard they laughed.

Kayleigh McEnany has been a Trump goon since she bailed from being a Cruz goon. On her first day as White House spokesgoon, she lied by saying she’d never lie. McEnany now works for Fox News and has a new book out. I’m sure she’ll use both platforms for only telling the truth. McEnany was still serving as Trump’s spokesgoon at the time of the insurrection while also working as a campaign adviser which is illegal. You can’t work for a campaign and the government at the same time. But then again, using government property for a political convention is supposed to be illegal too.

McEnany spread lies about election fraud from the podium in the White House press room. She was present while Trump was giddily watching the white nationalist attack on the Capital building.

Trump Campaign goon Jason Miller was subpoenaed. He was a player in spreading election fraud lies and trying to convince legislators to overturn the election in their states. Miller was a contributor to CNN but left in 2018 after being accused of drugging his mistress.

Stephen Miller was director of Trump’s racism department and another spreader of election fraud lies. He may have been subpoenaed just to see if he appears with spray-on hair.

Alex Jones and Roger Stone were also recipients of the January 6 Committee’s subpoenas. Both of these guys are notable liars. Stone is a self-described “dirty trickster” who has a Richard Nixon tattoo on his back. Alex Jones is a right-wing liar and conspiracy theorist who uses his website, InfoWars, and his podcasts to spread them. Last week, a Connecticut court ruled he was liable for spreading defamation about the Sandy Hook school shooting. These guys are the crap that crap craps. You will have to learn how to read right-wing tea leaves to get anything out of them. Both men were a huge part of planning and promoting the insurrection.

If all these goons testify, it will be impossible for each of them NOT to perjure themselves. I’m looking forward to it by stocking up on popcorn.

These goons shouldn’t just go to prison if they defy these subpoenas. No, they should also be charged for their parts in an insurrection against the U.S. government.

And when all this crap goes to prison, I hope they take an orange turd with them.

Creative note: I actually got this idea after I went to bed. Then I laid awake for over an hour wondering how I was going to draw Stephen Miller laughing. This morning, I decided not to. Another thing, I labeled Miller with his full name because I was planning to include another liar named “Miller,” Jason Miller. Then I forgot.
And another thing, this might be the first time I’ve drawn Representative Bennie Thompson since I lived in Mississippi back in the 1990s.

Hit Steve Bannon One More Time


CjonesRGB11152021

Maybe America is correcting itself. Britney is free and Bannon is probably going to prison.

Britney Spears is finally free from the conservatorship managed by her father that controlled her life and career. During this time, the conservatorship paid out millions to the people keeping it alive, including her father, mother, entertainment firms, assistants, and lawyers. Preventing Britney from choosing how to spend her own money became an industry that made a lot of people richer. I hope she gets a lot of that back.

Britney was not allowed to make any of her own life and financial decisions. She wasn’t allowed to carry a credit card. She was forced to use an IUD to prevent her from having another baby. Hey, pregnant pop stars usually can’t tour and make their conservatorship money.

Her father got around $5 million to make sure Britney didn’t waste her money on stupid stuff, like giving her father $5 million. Daddy Dearest gave himself a $16,000 monthly salary from his daughter’s money because conservatoring a daughter’s life and career is hard. His monthly salary was more than the allowance he gave his daughter. He was also paid $2,000 for office space. This guy’s in Louisiana, right? Couldn’t he have just run his office from the back of a truck like Mr. Haney in Green Acres?

For some reason, Papa Spears has also been receiving royalties from her albums and tours. And then, he hired lawyers and managers to manage her money and career. Basically, he took the money and hired other people to do the work.

He also hired a firm, with Britney’s money, to spy on Britney. They even recorded what she was doing in her bedroom.

Hell, Britney even had to pay all the legal fees to fight her from ending the conservatorship. She paid one lawyer over $332,000 who later said he never knew he could petition to end the conservatorship. Even Rudy Giuliani and Sydney Powell would probably be better lawyers than this guy.

I don’t know why, but the conservatorship has also been paying for Britney’s mom to live in a mansion in Louisiana for the past 13 years. It pays all her utilities and has even hired a maid service.

Someone should probably hire a maid service to clean up Steve Bannon’s bullshit.

Steve Bannon was indicted Friday by a Washington, D.C. grand jury and will reportedly turn himself in to authorities on Monday. Bannon refused to comply with subpoenas from the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. The committee wants him to testify and is seeking documents related to the attack.

Bannon used Trump’s claim of executive privilege despite the fact he wasn’t working for the administration at the time of the insurrection, isn’t Trump’s lawyer (or even a lawyer), and the fact Donald Trump is not president (sic) anymore. What they’re trying to do is run out the clock.

The plan is to keep stalling and dragging their feet until January 2023. They’re hoping Republicans retake the House in the 2022 midterms and kill this committee after they’re sworn in. They will do that on day one if things go their way.

If Trump, Bannon, and all the rest of the white nationalist goons were innocent, they could want to testify to the committee. But the thing is, they’re all guilty. They’re all corrupt. Each of them attempted to overturn an election through a mob coup and install Trump as a fascist dictator. Watching Bannon go to jail may change the minds of all the others, like Mark Meadows, Stephen Miller, Jason Miller, Michael Flynn, Kayleigh McEnany, Katrina Pierson, and all the other goons who’ve promised to defy the law in name of Trumpism. Previously, they could count on a Trump pardon. Not so much now. After going to prison, the only jobs most of these goons will be able to land are gigs at Fox News, One America, and maybe hosting podcasts for white nationalists.

The real irony here is they’re all screaming about a fraudulent election that wasn’t fraudulent, and hoping to use the next election to kill all future elections. If Trump is elected again in 2024, goodbye, American democracy.

Bannon, who was already pardoned by Trump for grifting, will probably get a jail sentence between a month and a year. I’m predicting a month because none of these people ever truly get what they deserve.

Britney should be free. Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and all the co-conspirators who helped them try to destroy our nation should all receive life in prison.

The DOJ needs to hit them, baby, one more time.

BannonWeenie


Cjones10302021

Trump goon Steve Bannon is in contempt of Congress and Attorney General Merrick Garland is probably going to take action that sends Bannon to the jail for goons.

Bannon is avoiding testifying before Congress, claiming Donald Trump has enacted executive privilege to keep him from testifying about the January 6 insurrection to prevent the certification of President Biden’s victory over Trump, overturn an election, destroy democracy, and install the Great Racist Pumpkin as a fascist dictator.

Bannon also claims he didn’t have anything to do with planning the Trump white nationalist mob attack. Yeah, and Linus didn’t have anything to do with Sally missing Halloween candy to sit in a pumpkin patch all night waiting on some nonexistent bullshit and to ultimately only see a beagle. She was robbed and has a legal case.

Steve Bannon was NOT working for the president (sic) of the United States at the time of the attack. He may have worked for the campaign and plotted with them, but that’s NOT an official function. He is not Trump’s lawyer or a lawyer at all. He was not a member of the administration. So, Donald Trump can’t cite executive privilege over Steve Bannon’s testimony. Also, Donald Trump is not the president. He can’t cite executive privilege any more than I can.

For example: It’s five days before Halloween. I bought three bags of Halloween candy for trick-r-treaters. Is any of it left? I cite executive privilege and refuse to answer that question.

Also, why cite executive privilege? Trump and Bannon both say they didn’t plan the insurrection yet they don’t want to answer questions about planning the insurrection. I mean, if they’re trying to enact executive privilege, that means they gots shit they don’t want to answer for.

There was a “command center” for overturning the election on January 6. It was in a bunch of suites at the Willard hotel in Washington, a block from the White House (my hotel on election night was three blocks from the White House and I plotted out cartoons while eating a large Italian sub). The people involved at the Willard planning the coup attempt were Rudy Giuliani, former NYC police commissioner Bernard Kerik, John Eastman (who’s a Trump goon scholar of some sort), One America News reporter Christina Bobband who was working as a campaign volunteer (wait. You can’t be a journalist and a campaign volunteer), White House special assistant Boris Epshteyn (there’s always a Boris in Trump word), and…wait for it…Steve Bannon. If there’s a trail of shit, Steve Bannon will be found at the end of it. It’s right next to that trail of Rudy’s hair dye.

While these goons were conducting efforts with members of Congress and state legislators to overturn the election, they mostly needed an angry mob to get the job done. If Mike Pence wasn’t going to stop the certification, an angry mob would at least delay it, though the idea was to stop it. It’s rare an angry mob shows up by itself. You’re thinking of flash mobs.

To get an angry mob to show up, first you have to make them angry. You start by lying and telling them they were robbed like Sally was when she was sold a Great Pumpkin and only got a beagle in goggles. In addition to Donald Trump tweeting for them to be there (it’s gonna be “wild”), the Willard fuckers had Steve Bannon riling them up on his podcast.

Steve Bannon may possibly go to prison. But, I don’t want Steve Bannon to go to prison…as a sacrifice so others don’t. Sure, send Bannon to jail, but don’t send him alone. And these people don’t need to go to prison just because they refused a congressional subpoena. No. They need to go to prison for so much more.

These people attempted a coup. They were willing to have people die to install a dictator. They tried to destroy our democracy and Constitution. A lot of people don’t just deserve to go to prison, but must go. It is imperative we send people to prison who tried to overturn the government through a bloody coup. These include goons such as Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani. Everyone in the Willard plotting the coup. Representatives working with the racist insurrectionists such as Marjorie Taylor Green, Louie Gohmert, Lauren Boebert, and pedo-in-training Matt Gaetz. Finally, we should send the person to prison whose crimes outweigh everyone else’s. We need to convict and incarcerate the former president (sic) of the United States.

The Great Pumpkin will not be reinstated. There is no constitutional method for that. But there are laws to throw the racist Great Pumpkin in prison.

Lock them up.

No Treats With Bannon


CNN10242021

Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday. 

Two thing I really like drawing are Steve Bannon and Pumpkins. I just wish Steve Bannon would also only show up once a year. I actually wish the likes of him would never show up, you know…white nationalists, Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Klansmen, Nazis, Texas, Trumpers, Texans…people like that. And, right now, we need Bannon to show up and testify before Congress. Maybe what the January 6 Committee should do is tell Steve Bannon they don’t want to hear from them. Then, he’ll be there and he’ll never stop talking.

As for how things stand, I’m very comfortable with the fact Steve Bannon may go to prison. I hear there are a lot of Nazis in prison, so he’ll be fine. He has friends.

As I posted above, this cartoon is for CNN. But I wanted to draw another Bannon/Halloween cartoon for my clients and I just finished it. I’ll blog it soon, but let me get this one out first.
