Trump

MAGAt Mob


cjones01092021

Let the record state, I told you so.

In 2015, I told you a selfish, narcissistic, racist reality TV show host with the intellectual and reading level of a toddler would make a bad president. I told you this conman was too stupid to grasp the severity and seriousness of the job. I told you Donald Trump would put himself first and if it came down to it, would choose himself before this country. I told you Donald Trump would be the worst president in our nation’s history. I’m not alone. A lot of Americans are with me, and not just liberals. We told you so.

Over the past four years, we’ve seen him grift the nation. We’ve seen him take Putin’s side over that of America. And yesterday, we watched him incite a riot. What we saw yesterday was not a protest. It was a riot. It was a terrorist attack. Once again, Donald Trump proved he’s a threat to national security.

MAGAts are funny. The ones who weren’t there blame Antifa while defending the rioters. I’ve seen them make posts that the guy with the Braveheart face paint with horns on his head has been identified as a member of Antifa. In reality, he’s Jake Angeli from Arizona who is a Trump supporter and a member of Qanon. While blaming the riot on Antifa, which doesn’t exist, they’re also defending the rioters. I’ve seen the same people claiming it was Antifa state the rioters were defending democracy, weren’t violent, and are heroes.

These “nonviolent protesters” left four people dead in their wake. They interrupted Congress during a Constitutionally mandated action, the counting of the electoral college. They believe people shouldn’t protest for civil rights but when they don’t get what they want, they can burn the Congress down. That’s MAGA.

These people, this mob, these terrorists, walked from a Trump rally to Capitol Hill where they proceeded to riot, break in, smash windows, vandalize, and tear the place apart. Donald Trump told them “we” are going to march to the capitol building right before he jumped into a limo and went back to the White House, which has so much security now, you can barely see the White House.

So using these MAGAts’ logic, Donald Trump was addressing an Antifa rally. He wasn’t. He was talking to his MAGA base who are now comprised of terrorists and enemies of the United States of America. These MAGAts are equivalent of al Qaida and ISIS. They lost an election so yesterday, they attempted a coup. They engaged in sedition. And Donald Trump told them to do it.

Donald Trump is such a threat to the United States, Twitter blocked his account for 12 hours to prevent him from inciting further violence. Facebook followed suit. They need to make it permanent.

Now, the Trump cabinet needs to be as responsible as Twitter. A man who can’t be trusted with a social media account can’t be trusted with the nuclear codes. We can’t afford to let him have 14 more days.

Donald Trump started his presidency by declaring, “This American carnage stops right here and right now.” He said this delivering his inauguration speech on the steps of the capitol building…the same building where his presidency is ending with American carnage. How fitting. Donald Trump always projects so it’s natural that the guy who said “only he can fix” burns the place down. Who could have predicted this would happen? Along with a lot of other liberals, I did.

I told you so.

TrumpFly


CNN01032020

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?

Coupfefe


cjones01072021

When the tape came out Sunday of Donald Trump attempting to force Georgia’s secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, to disenfranchise thousands of voters, overturn an election, and thwart democracy, a lot of Republicans were upset. Republicans like Senator David Perdue, who is on the ballot today in a runoff trying to keep his seat.

Yes, Perdue was outraged. He called it “disgusting.” No, he wasn’t outraged Donald Trump was committing election fraud and behaving like a mob boss. He wasn’t even upset over the multiple conspiracy theories Trump shared on the call. Perdue was upset the call was recorded. He was upset at Raffensperger.

Perdue said, “I guess I was raised differently. To have a statewide elected official, regardless of party, tape without disclosing a conversation — private conversation — with the president of the United States, and then leaking it to the press is disgusting.”

I guess I was raised differently because I was raised to believe this is a republic and not a theocracy and the president should be a champion of democracy, not attempting to be a fascist leader. I was also raised to believe United States Senators choose democracy over fascism and cult leaders. I was raised to believed we respected the will of the people. I was raised to believe we abided by the Constitution. I was raised to believe we put America before cults of personalities. Obviously, a lot of Republicans were raised with different values.

I was also raised not to be a hypocrite. In 2017, after Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, he issued a threat for Comey to keep quiet, as he may have taped their conversations. Do you recall David Perdue being upset that Trump may have taped Comey? Funny. I don’t remember him doing that either.

Trump eventually said he didn’t tape Comey, as the former director called his bluff and spoke to the press about their conversations where Trump tried to get him to drop an investigation. But, Trump probably did tape the call as he has a history of that. Trump was taping phone calls decades ago without informing the other party.

But anyone who talks to Trump should record the conversation because he may ask them to do something illegal or lie about what he said later…or probably both.

And Republicans can pretend to be upset over this call being recorded and leaked, but that’s just a distraction from what they should really be upset over, the fact the president (sic) of the United States is engaging in criminal acts.

David Perdue may also want to check on the laws about recording a phone conversation. In Washington, D.C., it’s legal. In Georgia, it’s legal. David Perdue needs to find another reason to get his knickers in a twist. What isn’t legal is election fraud. While the state of Georgia may not want to go after Trump, the improved United States Justice Department may after January 20, and the Fulton County district attorney may open an investigation into the solicitation of election fraud.

Perdue also said, “I didn’t hear anything in that tape that the president hasn’t already said for weeks now since the November election.” Sure, we all heard the lies and conspiracy theories from Trump before, but have we heard him ask for favors…other than that time he illegally asked Ukraine to investigate his opponent (or he wouldn’t allow military aid) or that time when he asked Comey to stop investigating Michael Flynn? I guess David Perdue is right. We’ve all heard Donald Trump commit criminal acts before.

His colleague and fellow Georgian, Senator Kelly Loeffler, was OK with the tape because she’s on board with trying to overthrow the election tomorrow when Congress certifies Joe Biden’s election. Different values as in, they don’t have any.

We do have different values than Republicans. In fact, Republicans have different values than Republicans. There’s nothing Republican about destroying our republic. Perdue and Loeffler also called for Raffensperger to resign back when Donald Trump lost Georgia the first time before he lost the three recounts. How much do you want to bet that if Donald Trump had won Georgia, there would not have been any recounts, and definitely not three. I haven’t heard anything about there being a recount in places like Texas, North Carolina, or Florida where Trump won.

Republicans want the secretary of state to resign for doing his job and not handing an election over to a fascist wannabe, and they want the fascist reinstated. Again, different values.

I just hope today the majority of Georgians have better values than to return two fascist-loving, democracy-hating senators back to Washington.

Good Mike, Evil Mike


cjones01062021

Vice-President (sic) Mike Pence will preside when the Senate and House meet Wednesday, January 6, to certify the presidential election. It’s a role every vice-president takes. Four years ago, Joe Biden presided over the Congressional certification of Donald Trump’s victory (ugh). There have been a lot of questions over what Pence will do. There is very little he can do. He will be about as effective with this as he was leading the Coronavirus Task Force.

At least 140 House Republicans plan to object to the election result. At least 13 Senate Republicans will do the same. Their objections are based solely on debunked conspiracy theories. They argue for “election integrity” while lacking Congressional integrity. These members of the House and Senate are trying to stage a coup and steal an election. They will be about as effective with this as Mike Pence was at making Donald Trump a godly man. So, what will Mike do?

He’s already signaled support for the members of Congress who will object. On Saturday, his Chief-of-Staff issued a statement saying Pence “shares the concerns of millions of Americans about voter fraud and irregularities in the last election.” Never mind the fact there was no voter fraud or irregularities. The greatest example of election fraud has come from the White House.

The statement from Pence’s office continued with, “The Vice-President (sic) welcomes the efforts of members of the House and Senate to use the authority they have under the law to raise objections and bring forward evidence before the Congress and the American people on Jan. 6th.” Uhhhhhhh….what evidence? They will be as effective at producing evidence as Mike Pence was with promoting gay-conversion therapy.

At a fucknut hate rally in Georgia today, Pence said, “I promise you, come this Wednesday, we’ll have our day in Congress. We’ll hear the objections. We’ll hear the evidence.” We’d have better luck at finding Mike Pence’s integrity.

We will all have our day in Congress. Mostly, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will have their day in Congress. Why? Because they won the election. Republicans believe they’re going to overturn this election, but they’ll have as much luck with that as I have with not vomiting in my mouth every time Mike Pence calls the woman he sleeps with “Mother.” Ew.

Pence said we’ll “hear the evidence” come this Wednesday. The only evidence we heard of election fraud was from the tape of Trump begging and demanding the Georgia Secretary of State to overturn an election, give him imaginary votes, and thwart democracy, or else he’d send him to prison.

What will happen Wednesday will be a bunch of Republicans creating a shit show to shit on democracy for political expediency. They will further divide this nation. Instead of doing the right thing in certifying an election, even the winner they didn’t vote for, which Congress has always done…Republicans plan to attack democracy. But they’ll be about as successful attacking democracy as Mike Pence was at upstaging that fly.

I have to say, there’s nothing Republican about destroying a republic. The GOP is now a cult.

Joe Biden will be certified as our next president this Wednesday. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be inaugurated on January 20. The most intriguing part of Wednesday for me will be when it’s time for the vice-president (sic) to announce the winner. I’m making popcorn.

As for which version will show up on Wednesday, Good Mike Pence or Evil Mike Pence, spoiler alert! There is only Evil Mike Pence.

Trump Tapes


cjones01052021

After hearing tapes of Donald Trump’s call with Georgia’s secretary of state, I’m even more convinced he’s going to issue a self-pardon.

On Saturday, Donald Trump called Brad Raffensperger, the secretary of state, and harangued the guy for over an hour. It was a phone call the secretary shouldn’t have taken. Raffensperger was kind and courteous, telling Donald Trump at one point, “You have the wrong data,” instead of losing his cool and saying, “Stop calling me after freebasing 8chan, you corrupt orange conspiracy-minded lunatic!!!!”. Or something to that effect.

Donald Trump’s defense in that he didn’t break the law yesterday would be that he honestly believes in everything he said. He believes votes for Biden were counted three times. He believes dead people were voting. He believes out-of-state residents voted. He believes Dominion voting machines hijacked the election for Biden. He believes Dominion took out machines after the election so they couldn’t be inspected, or inner parts of them were replaced. He believes officials are stealing the election from him. He believes Fulton County is corrupt. He believes ballots were “shredded” in Fulton County. He believes the count is off by “hundreds of thousands” of votes. He believes a water main broke in a room where people were counting votes, then they rushed out leaving ballots unattended and while they were gone, leprechauns fucked with them or some shit like that….anyway. His best defense is that he’s fucking nuts.

And being desperate and nuts isn’t a great defense when you’re president (sic). I mean, do we really want a lunatic as our president (sic)? Apparently, a little less than half our nation does. Half our nation is comprised of lunatics.

But in regards to Donald Trump’s defense, can he be excused if he really doesn’t believe he was threatening Georgia’s secretary of state and his lawyer, Ryan Germany (who Trump said has a very nice last name) with prison if they didn’t overturn the state election for him?

While it was rambling and at times, barely coherent, it was a threat when Trump said, “But the ballots are corrupt. And you’re going to find that they are — which is totally illegal, it is more illegal for you than it is for them because, you know what they did and you’re not reporting it. That’s a criminal — that’s a criminal offense. And you can’t let that happen. That’s a big risk to you and to Ryan, your lawyer. And that’s a big risk. But they are shredding ballots, in my opinion, based on what I’ve heard. And they are removing machinery and they’re moving it as fast as they can, both of which are criminal finds. And you can’t let it happen and you are letting it happen. You know, I mean, I’m notifying you that you’re letting it happen.”

The highlights from that one paragraph alone: That’s criminal. That’s a big risk to you. It’s more illegal for you than it is for them. I’m notifying you that you’re letting it happen.

The most sketchy part of the conversation, out of a lot of sketchy shit, is when Donald Trump told Raffensperger to get him a specific number of votes. Donald Trump told Raffensperger to give him 11,780 more votes than he currently has. Why that number? Because Joe Biden beat him by 11,779. These votes don’t exist, so where are they supposed to come from?

In the call, Trump said, “All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state.” He then said, “So what are we going to do here, folks? I only need 11,000 votes. Fellas, I need 11,000 votes. Give me a break.”

Donald Trump is telling a state official to break the law, to disenfranchise voters, to overturn an election, and to violate democracy. This is what a mob boss does. This is literally what a fascist does.

Everything Donald Trump believes is a lie. And since he needs more than Georgia to flip for him to win the election, who is in other states is he calling to flip?

On Wednesday, Congress will count the electoral college and validate the election for President-Elect Joe Biden. Currently, we know of 140 House members and 12 senators who are going to object. They’re objecting to democracy. They never should have signed on to this coup but after hearing the tape of Trump’s call with Georgia, they should step back. Elected representatives, you know, who got their positions by being elected, shouldn’t object to an election.

It’s bad enough there are insane people out there believing all these conspiracy theories. I’ve had these Qnuts tweet at me in all caps that Biden will never be inaugurated. Do they believe they’ll find corruption and prove Donald Trump won, or do they believe in something worse? Do they believe something terrible is going to happen? Are they part of the plan in making something terrible happen?

Donald Trump is inviting and encouraging his MAGAt base to come to Washington on January 6. What will he do after Wednesday? What argument will they take? What new plan will develop to keep Donald Trump on a throne of power? Trump goons have already plotted to kidnap the female governor of Michigan after Trump tweeted “Liberate Michigan.” During one of the debates, he told Proud Boys to “stand by.” What is he telling them to do now? What are they discussing on 8chan, Parler and wherever the hell is that dark shadows congregate?

During the call, Raffensperger tried to shoot down Trump’s conspiracy theories and said, “The problem you have with social media, they — people can say anything.” Donald Trump replied, “Oh, this isn’t social media. This is Trump media.”

Trump media is where they decide their own facts. What are they saying over there?

This is not the first record of Donald Trump engaging in corruption in a phone call. Transcripts were released of his call with the president of Ukraine where he demanded him to investigate Joe Biden and his son or Donald Trump wouldn’t released military aid that had already been approved by Congress. Donald Trump was impeached for that and the Senate of corrupt Republicans acquitted him. Now, he’s breaking the law by telling, and begging, a government official to break the law.

Donald Trump probably won’t need any defense because Georgia is controlled by Republicans so they won’t prosecute him and federally, he’s going to pardon himself. Since the election, Donald Trump has proven time and time again that voting him out of office was the right thing to do.

Joe Biden won the election. This is a fact. There was no mass voter fraud. In the United States, the loser doesn’t win the election (unless he/she wins the most votes but loses the electoral college, but we’ll get back to that another day). If Republicans somehow succeed in stealing the election not just from Joe Biden, but from the American people, then what sort of presidency will Donald Trump operate? After the Senate acquitted him, he just upped his game of corruption. He knew he wouldn’t be punished for anything. If you steal an election for him, then you’re not going to have a president. You’ll have a dictator.

Why would any Republican want to throw out democracy for a fascist state? That’s what I don’t get.

Donald Trump and Republicans are fighting for fascism. Lock them up.

Josh’s Election Jacking


cjones01032021

Michael Gerson addresses Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley’s plan to object to the certification of Joe Biden’s electoral college victory in his most recent column for The Washington Post.

Gerson writes, “In the cause of his own advancement, the senator from Missouri is willing to endorse the disenfranchisement of millions of Americans — particularly voters of color — and justify the attempted theft of an election. He is willing to credit malicious lies that will poison our democracy for generations. The fulfillment of Hawley’s intention — the ultimate overturning of the election — would be the collapse of U.S. self-government.”

Hawley, who is a former clerk for Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, understands the Constitution. Hawley knows there was no massive election fraud and what he’s doing is helping Donald Trump advance a lie and conspiracy theory. Since Hawley is aware of all this, what he’s doing is pandering.

He’s pandering to Donald Trump, the MAGAt base, and to right-wing propaganda outlets such as Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax because he wants to run for president in 2024. Maybe if Donald Trump is too bogged down in his own personal strife, debts, scandals, lawsuits, potentially prison, and possibly fleeing the country, to run for president again, he’ll endorse Josh Hawley. In fact, Hawley is actually fundraising off this.

Hawley is overlooking something. Donald Trump is not loyal. Do you think he’s pardoning his goons out of loyalty? No. He’s pardoning them as a payoff. If you want an expert opinion on Trump’s loyalty, talk to Michael Cohen. Trump’s loyalty and corruption are the only two things Cohen is an expert on, but he knows the subject. You can also talk to William Barr and Jeff Sessions. Hell, talk to Mitch McConnell, who carried Donald Trump’s water for four years yet found himself on the nasty end of mean tweets after acknowledging Joe Biden won the election.

Hawley should talk to McConnell and fellow Republican senator Ben Sasse.

Senator Sasse said this was an attempt to “disenfranchise millions of Americans” and wrote an open letter stating, “Let’s be clear what is happening here: We have a bunch of ambitious politicians who think there’s a quick way to tap into the president’s populist base without doing any real, long-term damage. But they’re wrong, and this issue is bigger than anyone’s personal ambitions. Adults don’t point a loaded gun at the heart of legitimate self-government.”

And there are a “bunch” of them seeking to disenfranchise millions of Americans. According to reports, when Congress counts the electoral college votes this coming Wednesday, at least 140 Republicans in the House are going to object. That’s 140 members of Congress who will object to democracy. That’s just in the house. How many Republicans will join Hawley in the Senate? Hell, these goons are even suing Mike Pence over his mostly ceremonial duty of overseeing the electoral count in Congress.

Joe Biden won the election. The same process and procedures that have confirmed Joe Biden is the president-elect are the exact same ones that confirmed Donald Trump in 2016. On January 6, Congress will confirm that Joe Biden is the next duly-elected president of the United States of America on January 20, he will be sworn into office. Donald Trump will not be president after January 20.

In case you’re a Republican, that’s not a prediction. It’s a spoiler.

Note: I dedicate this cartoon to my friend and fellow cartoonist Bob Quick. He’s been very supportive of my career and the poor bastard lives in Missouri. He also sent me a wonderful drawing of Josh Hawley with a horse head. I told him he drew the wrong end. Hang in there, Bob.

Buh-Bye, Blubber


cjones01012021

I know. I know. Donald Trump weighs more than 243 pounds, but I’m going with what his doctor claims.

When I came up with this idea (while trying to get one on another subject, as usual), my first thought was on how much to list his weight. I do my research so I looked up the last lie that came from his physical and it’s listed at 243. We all know that’s a lie. If you have eyes, you know that’s a lie.

Political cartoons do make fun of people’s appearances but that should never be the point (even though I made an entire cartoon recently on Kelly Loeffler’s extremely long neck). But the rules on making fun of someone’s weight can change depending upon their character. Like, if they’re just generally a rotten human being, you can make fun of their weight. If they made fun of other people’s weight, for example, calling a woman a “fat pig,” you can make fun of their weight. And, if they make their weight an issue, you can make fun of their weight. Also, if they choose to look like an orange clown with a bleached ferret on their head, you can make fun of them.

Donald Trump’s weight and health became another part of the chaos and insanity he brought to this nation. When his doctor comes out and says Donald Trump can live up to 200 years, you can go after them. Even his last physical became a major news item because they didn’t just lie about the results, they lied about taking the physical.

Donald Trump unexpectedly went to the hospital in 2019 and no one knows why. The White House claimed he was taking his physical on different dates, like they were chopping it up. One day, he steps on a scale. The next day, they stick a finger in his ass. No, they don’t do it like that. They do it all at once. Have you ever had a physical? If so, then you know the entire unpleasant experience is all at once. And for Donald Trump’s doctor, really unpleasant for him.

The subject of Donald Trump’s weight, his lying about it, and other people lying about it (how does he get people to do that?), is just one more bonus of dropping Donald Trump. There’s a lot of crazy stupid shit we’re getting rid of while also having a lot to clean up too.

And yeah, 243 can’t be accurate and I know I’ll be getting shit about it all day. The cartoon is dated for the first day of the year (in case you’re a Republican, that’s January 1), so I’ll be getting additional shit then on GoComics. I already posted this cartoon on Facebook, and I swear I’m not exaggerating but within a minute, someone gave me shit about the 243. By now, there are about 20 comments about the 243 not being right. It has turned into a guessing game. 285? 340? 400? There should be a national contest for it. If you guess the correct weight, you get the coronavirus vaccine.

Anyway, it doesn’t matter how much orange blubber there is, on January 20, it’s gone.

Buh-bye, blubber.

May Old Trumpster Fires Be Forgot


cjones12312020

Everyone pretty much agrees 2020 was the suck of all sucks when it comes to years. About the only people who disagree are billionaire assholes who were able to take advantage of a global pandemic to become bigger billionaire assholes.

But we didn’t just get a shitty year with 2020. We got shitty years in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020. We’ve had four years of a racist in the White House defending Vladimir Putin and Nazis. We’ve had an orange shitgibbon throwing babies into cages. We seen four years of huge government spending on a useless racist border wall and huge tax cuts for billionaires. We’ve had four years of a child in the White House attacking facts while telling over 20,000 lies. We’ve had four years of a conman grifting the country for his own wealth. We’ve had four years of a president (sic) acting as though laws don’t apply to him, and a political party acting like laws don’t apply to him. We’ve had four years of watching the Republican Party abandon all principles to become a cult. We’ve had four years of a cult devouring half this nation.

Personally, I’m conflicted. While watching my nation be destroyed from within by shitweasels and fucknuts, I was having a blast. But when political cartoonists are thriving, the nation is in trouble. We’re the guys who tell jokes at funerals.

As for the racist cult of troglodyte sycophants, I’ll say to you what Green Day sang and, “I hope you had the time of your life.” Appropriately, the name of that song is “Good Riddance.”

Cult Or Country?


cjones12302020

For years, decades even, Republicans were lying to us. They told us they were “fiscal” conservatives. They said they were for family values. They ran on religion as if the other party consisted entirely of heathens and atheists. They wrapped themselves in the flag and said they were more more patriotic than Democrats. And they told us they support our troops.

We’ve always known they were lying about the fiscal thing. The last time there was a balanced budget under a Republican was during the Eisenhower administration. Republicans spend more than Democrats. The debt increases more under Republicans. Republicans give permanent tax cuts to billionaire assholes and corporations. They finance wars with tax cuts to billionaires. And the only time you hear Republicans talk about controlling spending is when Democrats have the White House. But it took Donald Trump for Republicans to reveal all their other positions were lies. Funny thing is, they’re still telling them.

The party that went after Bill Clinton over his lack of family values and for having multiple affairs turned around and backed Mr. Grab-Them-By-The-Pussy. They supported a man who boasted about cheating on his wife and assaulting women…while he had a newborn child at home. They supported the guy who boasted about barging in on naked teenage girls. The supported the guy who divorced twice, cheated on all three of his wives, and has five children with three different women. They supported the guy who has nearly 30 accusations ranging from assault to rape. They supported the guy who looked at a child and said, “I’ll be dating her in a few years.” They supported the guy who talks about dating his daughter and grades her figure. Republicans lied about being the party of family values. If anything, they’re the party of icky creepy fuckers.

Even before Donald Trump showed up grabbing pussies, Republicans made a pedophile the Speaker of the House. A pedophile. In case you’re a Republican, a pedophile is…wait. If you’re a Republican, you already know what a pedophile is.

Republicans lied about religion and their love of Jesus and God. They literally turned their entire party into a cult worshipping a reality TV show host. Anyone who opposes Trump is cast out as a sinner and blasphemer. The religious right and evangelical base proved what a bunch of wormy hypocrites they are when they started supporting the guy who ogles little girls and throws babies into cages. Jesus wouldn’t do that.

They lied about being patriotic. They voted for the guy endorsed and supported by Vladimir Putin. Here’s a voting primer: Don’t vote for the guy supported by Russia. It’s as easy as that. Republicans were silent when Donald Trump gave away classified information to Russians in the Oval Office. They were silent over his taking Putin’s word over our intelligence agencies. They remained silent over Russia tampering in our elections to help Trump. They have yet to criticize Trump for allowing Russia to hack into our nation’s computer system or for Trump downplaying Russia’s involvement. They’ve allowed Donald Trump to shove allies aside and embrace Russia. The party that tells us Democrats are communists ignores Donald Trump saying he fell in love with a communist (In case you’re a Republican, that’s Kim Jong Un).

Now, they have to choose between Donald Trump and the military. Just like you can’t be a patriot and a MAGAt, you can’t be a Trump supporter and a supporter of our military.

Look at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. He voted for the defense spending bill which includes pay raises for our troops. Donald Trump vetoed the bill over removing names of Confederate generals from military bases and something that wasn’t even in the bill. Yesterday, the House voted to override Trump’s veto. McCarthy, who voted for the defense bill, turned around and opposed it (he missed the vote). If he’s wearing a neck brace today, it’s because he has whiplash. How many other Republicans will need neck braces?

The bill is for spending $740 billion on our defense…for one year. We spend more on our defense than the next ten countries…combined. While Donald Trump has boasted about “rebuilding the military,” we’ve been increasing the defense budget yearly long before Donald Trump even heard that “I’m Just a Bill” song. But now, the guy who claims he rebuilt our military and loves our troops has vetoed the bill. Why?

First off, he vetoed it because it doesn’t include a repeal of Section 230, a law that shields internet companies from being liable for what is posted on their websites by third parties. In case you’re a Republican, I’ll explain that.

If I go on Twitter and create a post claiming Donald Trump barges in on naked teenage girls so he can ogle them and he wants to date his daughter, he can’t sue Twitter. Why? Because it’s true. But, say you own Twitter and some idiot makes a post claiming George Soros is funding migrant caravans, and it’s a lie. Section 230 protects you from being sued by George Soros because some anti-Semitic orange idiot made a libelous post on your platform. What does any of this have to do with our defense budget and military? Absolutely nothing. But this is the logic of the world’s greatest negotiator. We don’t understand it because we’re not as smart as Trump. Surely, it has to be a genius move. What Trump did with his veto was put himself before the military because the entire social media thing is only about him.

There were other complaints with the bill, such as limits to how much money Trump can move from the military to his useless racist border wall (it should be zero), and that Confederate naming thing. That’s another point against being patriotic. Just how patriotic are you when you’re fighting to retain traitors’ names on U.S. bases?

There was also a measure requiring the Pentagon to submit reports certifying that the proposed troop withdrawals from other nations, like Afghanistan and South Korea, would not jeopardize U.S. national security. Donald Trump didn’t like that.

The House voted 322-87 on Monday to override the veto, well above the two-thirds needed to override. It now goes to the Senate which also needs two-thirds to override. The question is: How many Republicans who were initially for it will now be against it? How about those two Republicans senators from Georgia? Yikes for them. Where do they stand on orange billionaires ogling naked teenagers?

In the House, 109 Republicans voted to override Donald Trump’s veto while 66 voted to support Donald Trump. There are 66 House Republicans who chose Donald Trump over our military. I don’t know how many of those 66 voted for the bill the first time, but I’m working on it and will report back when I have the number. But the bill was unchanged. There was nothing different about it except that Donald Trump vetoed it.

This was the first override of a Trump veto. It’s an excellent way for him to end his presidency (sic). Even with goons like Kevin McCarthy remaining, his control over the party is slipping. Still, he may lash out at those who voted for the override. Mean-tweeting 109 individual Republicans would require a lengthy session for toilet-tweeting, but I believe Donald Trump can do it. You go, you.

Now, we get to find out how many Republican senators will choose Trump over our military. You can’t support our military and Trump. You can’t be a patriot and a Trump supporter. You can’t be pro-democracy and pro-Trump.

You can’t be a loyal American and a Trump supporter.

Good Riddance, Trump Baby

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

I’m probably going to do another New Year concept for my newspaper and website clients (they don’t get my CNN cartoons) so I’m going to apologize now.

I was trying to make Trump look like the Trump Baby balloon. That’s why his mouth is open and he’s holding a cell phone.
