Steve Mnuchin

What’s Your Twenty?


cjones05272019

When the Obama administration announced that Andrew Jackson would be removed from the twenty dollar bill and replaced with Harriet Tubman, a hero who helped lead 300 slaves to freedom through the Underground Railroad, then private citizen and all-around racist asshole Donald Trump said it was political correctness.

It is not political correctness to remove a racist and hateful president from the face of currency. It’s just correctness. Just like it’ll be correct when we remove a racist and hateful president from the White House.

Harriet Tubman escaped slavery by fleeing from her owner’s plantation in Maryland. She returned to the south at least 19 times leading at least 300 slaves to freedom in the north via the Underground Railroad. She also worked as a spy for the Union during the Civil War and is the only woman to ever lead a battalion into battle. Slave owners hated her so much that they put a $40,000 bounty on her head, yet she kept returning to the south to free slaves.

Before being named Secretary to the Treasury and helping Donald Trump hide his taxes, Steve Baby Fishmouth Mnuchin had a cushy job at Goldman Sachs and stripped corporations of their assets. He’s reportedly worth $300 million. He’s also the guy preventing Tubman from replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.

Mnuchin claims the delay, until at least 2028, is because of counterfeit concerns. Apparently, it’s a lot easier to copy Tubman’s likeness than Andrew Jackson’s. I’m sure his racist boss’s anger at a black woman replacing his hero, slave-owning and Native American murderer Andrew Jackson doesn’t have anything to do with it. Once again, these ass-kissing sycophants are performing for an audience of one. Once again when given the opportunity to do the right thing, these cultists do the wrong thing.

After the war, while traveling from Philadelphia to New York on a “half-fare ticket,” a conductor tried to remove Tubman to the smoking car. It took him and two other men to remove her, breaking her arm and several ribs in the process. She called him a “copperhead scoundrel.”

Today, two copperhead scoundrels are removing her from the $20 bill, but it won’t work. She will be on the bill eventually. Tubman is a historic icon with monuments and parks named after her. Her place in history will always be more revered than that of Cheeto Potentate Shitgibbon and Baby Fishmouth.

Creative note: I got this idea while sitting in a bar in Raleigh, North Carolina with a bunch of other cartoonists. I was keeping to myself at the moment, eating chicken strips when the light bulb struck. I didn’t bounce it off anyone.

Transparent President?


cjones05102019

For Donald Trump, claiming he’s the “most transparent president ever,” would be like saying you’re honest while stealing from a charity.

It’d be like saying you’re a great businessman and writing a book called “Art of the Deal” during a decade of losing over a billion dollars.

It’d be like saying, “I’m the least racist person ever” while building a racist vanity project to keep out brown people.”

It’d be like attacking a Congresswoman for antisemitism after you’ve retweeted Nazis.

It’d be like complaining about undocumented workers after you’ve hired undocumented workers.

It’d be like attacking Democrats for sexual scandals after you’ve paid women to keep quiet about your diddling them.

It’d be like complaining about antisemitism after you’ve called for a ban on Muslims, called someone “Pocahontas,” accused Black Lives Matter of being thugs, referred to nations where brown people come from as “shithole countries,” called Mexicans “rapists” and “murderers,” accused black women of being dumb, said a judge is unfit because he’s of Mexican lineage, referred to immigrants as “animals,” engaged in birtherism, or praised Nazis.

It’d be like saying you’ll only hire the best people then hiring your daughter, your son-in-law, Betsy Devos, Ben Carson, Rick Perry, Omarosa, William Barr, Jeff Sessions, Sean Spicer, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stephen Miller, Steve Bannon, etc.

It’d be like saying, “I know more than the generals” while believing there are invisible airplanes.

It’d be like claiming you’re a great negotiator then after receiving an offer, negotiating yourself down to receiving nothing.

It’s like giving your opponents nicknames like “Crooked Hillary” and “Lyin’ Ted” then telling over 10,000 lies.

It’d be like saying you love America and you’re a patriot while ignoring that Russia meddled in our last election and is planning to do it again in the next one.

It’d be like saying, “I’ll own the shutdown,” then later saying, “They did it.”

It’d be like saying, “No one understands science more than I do” while believing noise from windmills causes cancer.

It’d be like complaining that Facebook’s bans on racists are a threat to the First Amendment while declaring there should be laws restricting a free press.

It’d be like complaining about “fake news” while retweeting conspiracy theories.

It’d be like saying you’re a “young and vibrant man” while looking like THAT.

It’d be like making fun of someone else’s hair while wearing a bleached mongoose on your head.

It’d be like questioning if Obama was born in the United States while lying where your father was born.

It’d be like complaining about someone not releasing their college transcripts while hiding your college transcripts.

It’d be like complaining about someone staging a hate crime after you’ve encouraged your rally attendants to assault black people.

It’d be like saying, “no one respects women more than I do” while grabbing them by the pussy.

It’d be like complaining about Antifa when your supporters are mailing bombs to Democrats and journalists.

It’d be like saying, “No one’s more presidential than I am” while you’re dry humping a flag.

It’d be like “writing” a book when you’re illiterate.

It’d be like saying you support our troops after you’ve said a POW is not a war hero and feuded with Gold Star families.

It’d like accusing Joe Biden of being creepy after you’ve stated that if you two weren’t related, you’d be dating your daughter.

It’d be like accusing Democrats of colluding with Russia after you invited Russians into your campaign headquarters.

It’d be like claiming you’re a family man after you had three divorces and children from three different women.

It’d be like saying you don’t support Nazis after you hired Stephen Miller.

Yeah, it’d be like that.
