Trump Fly



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

When I bounced this off my editor, he asked if I was playing off the 1980s version of The Fly with Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. I told him I was referencing the original more since that movie made “help me” famous. Goldblum does say “help me” in the 80s version, but it’s not the iconic one that made it famous. Still, a lot of people may not be thinking of the 1950s one when they think of The Fly.

To be honest, I’ve never seen the 50s version but it’s so iconic, I’m well aware of “help me” in a high pitched voice. Still, I looked up the iconic “help me” scene from the 1950s version, and after being jaded, desensitized and inoculated to movie violence throughout my life, I gotta say…that scene creeped me the F out. It made my skin crawl.

But still not as creepy as Mike Pence and is fawning adoration of Donald Trump. In fact, all MAGAts are creepy. But cults tend to be that way. They’re like Children of the Corn without the corn, or that movie where all the children had glowing eyes.

Donald Trump is pressuring Mike Pence to reject ballots tomorrow when he presides over Congress certifying the electoral college. He’s confused in that Mike Pence doesn’t actually have that power. And thank god he doesn’t. If Mike Pence did that power, would he use it to disenfranchise millions of voters and steal an election and create a fascist state?
