Voter fraud

Voter Intimidation, 2022

Nice democracy you have there. It’d be a real shame if anything were to happen to it. That seems to be what the MAGA goons stalking ballot drop boxes seem to be saying to voters.

Despite lying about voter fraud, using those lies to change laws making it more difficult for minorities to vote, and claiming they’re going to have a red wave on November 8 and retake the House, Senate, and all the governor races, Republicans still feel the need to send out armed goons to stalk ballot boxes. They still feel the need to cheat further.

Last Friday, two such armed goons in masks and tactical gear were stalking a ballot box in Maricopa County, Arizona. Maricopa County is where Arizona Republicans have based all their lies and even allowed a pro-MAGA group with zero experience in ballot counting to recount the county months after the election was certified. Biden won Maricopa County. Fact, fact, fuckity fact, fact.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has pushed lie after lie on voter fraud, continues to claim that Trump won the state, and that she’ll only recognize the upcoming election in Arizona as legitimate if she wins. Arizonans should test this by voting for her Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs.

Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates and Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer issued a joint statement saying, “We are deeply concerned about the safety of individuals who are exercising their constitutional right to vote and who are lawfully taking their early ballot to a drop box. Uninformed vigilantes outside Maricopa County’s drop boxes are not increasing election integrity. Instead, they are leading to voter intimidation complaints.”

The statement also reads, “For those who want to be involved in election integrity, become a poll worker or an official observer with your political party. Don’t dress in body armor to intimidate voters as they are legally returning their ballots.” Yeah, except they harass intimidate poll workers too. That’s what Rudy and Trump did to at least two black female poll workers in Georgia.

There are other complaints about goons stalking ballot drop boxes throughout Arizona. One complaint says voters and their license plates are being photographed as they drop off their ballots. Another complaint says voters are being followed after dropping off their ballots. And another says goons stalking ballot boxes have been shouting “mules” at voters, which is a reference to a fringe voter fraud conspiracy theory and debunked film created by a Trump mule after he had received a pardon from Trump.

Ironically or hypocritically, some of the uniformed armed and masked goons are covering their own license plates as they take photos of voters’ license plates.

An association for retirees and an organization for Latino voters are seeking a temporary restraining order against a group titled Clean Elections USA (HAHAHAHA! Yeah, right) they allege is coordinating a campaign of voter intimidation in Arizona.

Melody Jennings, the founder of “Clean Elections USA,” a supposed minister, a frequent guest on Steve Bannon’s podcast, and a certified goon has boasted of training and deploying volunteers in 18 states, including Arizona. Melody, you don’t have clean elections by sending armed and masked goons to intimidate people while they’re voting.

Mike Peterson, the guy who does Comic Strip of the Day and a friend of mine, replied to this cartoon in a tweet saying, “I’d almost be more comfortable if the GOP had formally sent them. The GOP’s hatemongering, paranoid rhetoric inspires them, which is a sign of how utterly irresponsible they are in ignoring the real-world impact of their power-mad, idiotic ravings.”

That’s generous. Mike’s statement implies that if the GOP knew their hatemongering paranoid rhetoric was inspiring goons to intimidate voters, then they’d stop with the rhetoric. I’m more cynical than my friend. I believe that’s one of the reasons they’re doing so much hatemongering, lying, and spreading conspiracy theories. I don’t believe Republicans have consciences.

Republicans don’t care about election fraud. If they did, they’d be outraged, livid, and calling for the prosecution of the guy who called a governor and told him to “find” him 11,780 votes.

Republicans have spread conspiracy theories about mail-in voting and ballot boxes, claiming they’re used for voter and election fraud. Yet, there were no reported cases of fraud, vandalism, or anything else that could have changed the outcome of the 2020 election. Fact, fact, fuckity fact, fact.

Armed goons stalking ballot drop boxes while wearing masks isn’t just discouraged, it’s illegal. It’s against federal law and many state laws to intimidate voters. This stems from voter intimidation during the Civil Rights era when racist fucks in the deep south would harass, intimidate, and threaten black voters.

And isn’t it funny that the people who scream the loudest about election integrity don’t have integrity?

Christmas Conspiracies


During the impeachment hearings last year, Corey Lewandowsky whined when a Congressman mentioned that Santa Claus doesn’t exist. Corey was indignant because his young children were watching and now…they only had all the bullshit their father spreads to believe in. So, I hope Corey Lewandowsky’s children aren’t reading today’s blog.

If Donald Trump sat on Santa’s lap and asked for a litany of bullshit like proof of voter fraud, witnesses, affidavits, and forensic evidence, Santa wouldn’t be able to give him any of it. Why? Because like Santa Claus, none of those things exist. Santa also wouldn’t be able to give Trump another four years or a pardon. Maybe Donald Trump should go back and sit on Rudy Giuliani’s lap or better yet…be like Melania and say “fuck Christmas.”

It’s been nearly a month since the election and Donald Trump is still spreading lies about it. In the process, he’s undermining democracy. He’s even calling Republicans officials who won’t steal the election for him in their states, “enemy of the people.” As a member of the group he first accused of being the enemy of the people, I say welcome to the club. I’m old school “enemy of the people.” Dictators call people who report facts or won’t help them in their corruption “enemy of the people.” Donald Trump is not a dictator, but he will be if he steals this election.

How old are Corey Lewandowsky’s kids? Are any of them too old to believe in Santa yet? How about believing in Donald Trump?

Most Trump supporters are too old to believe in Santa Claus. But being the Qanon fuckwits that they be, they still believe in bullshit Donald Trump says like there was mass voter fraud in 2016 even though he hasn’t been able to prove it over the past four years. They still believe him when he says there was voter fraud in 2020 despite the lack of evidence and despite the inability of his legal team to present any evidence in the nearly 40 court cases that have been tossed out. They believe Trump when he says votes were moved from Trump to Biden. They believe communists, the Clinton Foundation, George Soros, and the dearly departed Hugo Chavez stole the election for Joe Biden. Seriously, Santa Claus is easier to believe in than all this Trump bullshit.

Trump supporters, you’re too old for this. Just because Donald Trump is a raging idiot who believes in conspiracy theories doesn’t mean you have to be one too. You can do better than Donald Trump. And stop giving him money to steal the election. If he’s as rich as you’ve been bragging about over the past four years, he shouldn’t need it. Let him fund his own election steal.

And if Santa Claus truly did exist, Donald Trump would be on his naughty list for being a liar, racist, sexist, traitor, grifter, and for ripping families apart and throwing babies in jail. I don’t have a naughty list but I do have a worthless lying orange shit-for-brains racist sexist grifter list. Guess whose name is on that.

Deep-State Voter Fraud


What’s dumber than believing Donald Trump won the election or that there’s a deep-state cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic lizard people running the government? Believing you can trust Donald Trump to work out a fair payment AFTER you perform a service for him.

Donald Trump has been sued numerous times by contractors for refusing to pay the price he agreed to in a contract. He’s even been sued by the lawyers who represented him in these disputes for non payments. So now Rudy Giuliani is publicly embarrassing himself for a price to be determined later.

Rudy is Trump’s lead legal fucknut in trying to steal the election from Joe Biden. In doing so, he has to present a case of total bullshit and conspiracy theories. Yesterday, Rudy argued a case in Pennsylvania and told the judge he wasn’t accusing anyone of voter fraud…and then blamed it all on voter fraud. He must have thought he was on Hannity.

There are reports that Rudy is charging $20,000 a day to represent Donald Trump in this attempt to steal the election. Rudy says those reports are lies…and you know how we can always trust Rudy to tell the truth. Rudy says they’ll work out a price after they’re done stealing the election and Donald Trump begins his second term.

Is Donald Trump stupid? Yes, he is, but he’s not dumb enough to pay Rudy $20,000 a day of his own money. His supporters are paying Rudy.

There’s only one thing dumber than voting for Donald Trump and that’s giving money to elect Donald Trump. His grifting is on public record. He publicly cried for an international summit to be given to one of his shitty golf resorts. A court has barred him and three of his shitty kids from participating with any charitable organizations in New York state because he stole from his own charity. Most people would go to prison for something like that. As president (sic), Donald Trump has directed millions of dollars of taxpayer money into his businesses. On top of all that, his campaign conducts events at his resorts where the Trump Campaign pays a fee to Donald Trump.

Giving money to support Donald Trump is like buying a new watch for the guy who stole your watch. So if you’re still giving money to the Trump Campaign, you’re giving it to Donald Trump. And if you’re dumb enough to give Trump money…are you dumb enough to believe a second Trump term will be saved by Rudy Giuliani, the guy who got scammed by Borat?

Part of this entire bullshit propaganda of Trump really winning the election and having it stolen by Democrats is to steal the election from Joe Biden. Another reason is to destroy faith in the government that takes over in January and make Joe Biden fail. But perhaps the greatest reason for this scam is that the Trump Campaign is still raising money for it.

But this time, it’s not going to a legal fight as much as it’s paying off campaign debt…and going into Donald Trump’s pockets. Maybe Trump will put the cash into his secret Chinese bank account or maybe he’ll put it towards the $500 million or so he owes to shady mystery creditors (probably Russians). Or maybe he’ll band use to pay off a real lawyer to help Rudy out the next time he tries to lure a teenage girl into a Manhattan hotel room supposedly for drinks while his hand is down his pants.

What’s almost just as crazy as believing Donald Trump will pay you later…or that Rudy Giuliani should lead your legal defense, is believing the election was stolen from Donald Trump.

70% of Republicans believe Donald Trump won the election and it’s being stolen by Democrats. And just like they didn’t have proof when a majority believed President Obama was born in Kenya, they don’t have any proof of massive voter fraud.

But hey, Republicans don’t need proof for bullshit. Ask Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, or Donald Trump. And now with members of Qanon actually being elected to the United States Congress, anything goes.

Republicans don’t have any relationship with the truth. At this time, only four Republican senators have accepted that Joe Biden has won the election. Two Republicans senators are screaming for the secretary of state of Georgia to resign because he counted more votes for Biden than for Trump. Another senator has called the same secretary of state suggesting he throw out votes for Biden. You know, votes cast by black people.

Republicans don’t have integrity, don’t care about democracy, and don’t care about the truth. Don’t believe me? Let’s go grab dinner at Comet Pizza and ask them about it. Actually, I’m joking. I’d never have dinner with a Republican. I can’t eat while looking at you people.

Here’s a fact: Donald Trump will not be president after noon on January 20, 2021. Why? Because of the fact Joe Biden beat his ass in the presidential election. Donald Trump lost the election fair and square and there’s not enough Rudy bullshit in the world to change that fact.

Here’s an unfortunate fact: All these idiots who would rather believe in conspiracy theories about voter fraud, lizard people, devil worshippers, or Democratic pedophilic pizza makers, will still be around after Donald Trump is gone.

Another fun fact: Fuck COVID. I’m not going anywhere either.

Once, Twice, Three Times a Trump Voter


Guess what. In the future, when nominees for the United States Attorney General are going through their Senate confirmation hearings, they will have to be asked if they’re aware voting twice is illegal.

No, seriously. This is another thing the Trump era has fucked up. William Barr, Donald Trump’s favorite Droopy-lookalike saggy jowl toad, said he was unaware if voting twice was illegal.

The background? Yesterday, while talking to fucknuts in North Carolina, Donald Trump encouraged his followers to vote twice. You know, cheat. Break the wall. Crap all over our Democratic institution.

For months, Donald Trump has been spreading fear about mail-in voting. He and Republicans keep telling us it’s impossible to conduct mail-in voting without fraud, unless of course it’s in a Republican state. Seriously. They also claim the Post Office can’t handle the millions of ballots.

The truth: There has been no widespread fraud in mail-in voting. And, with each example Republicans present, it’s an example of someone being caught. And, the Post Office can handle the millions of mail-in ballots. How do I know this? Because they do about five times that many every Christmas. From Thanksgiving to January 1, the Post Office handles over 800 millions packages. There are only 153 million voters in this country…unless of course, everybody’s voting twice.

Donald Trump said people in North Carolina, a state he’s in danger of losing, should try to vote twice. He said, “Let them send it in and let them go vote, and if their system’s as good as they say it is, then obviously they won’t be able to vote. If it isn’t tabulated, they’ll be able to vote.”

He summed up, “That’s the way it is. And that’s what they should do.” And if they do that, they will go to jail.

When asked by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, William Barr, being Donald Trump’s toad, said, “I don’t know what the law in the particular state says, and when that vote becomes final.” The law in that particular state, and every particular state, says it’s illegal.

Wolf asked, “”Is there any state in which you can vote twice?”

Barr said, “Maybe you can change your vote up to a particular time, I don’t know what the law is.” Seriously? You don’t know what the law is? I’m just a goofball cartoonist but I know what the law is. Voting twice is illegal. Prove me wrong.

Here’s a fun fact, if you try to vote twice, you will lose all your voting rights. Let me dumb it down for Trumplicans: In the future, you won’t even be able to vote once.

Congressman Ted Lieu tweeted, “Dear anyone at the Justice Department: Can you please educate Bill Barr that it is illegal to vote twice. And it’s really, really easy to get caught since you are giving the evidence directly to the state.” I’ll add to that with a, “D’uh!”

It’s shameful that someone who has been Attorney General….TWICE (maybe that should be illegal)…has to play dumb for Donald Trump. It’s like those preachers saying they don’t know if fornicating outside your marriage is considered a sin in the Bible.

But then again, maybe William Barr was having a mini stroke.

I have a prediction. In this election, there will be multiple cases of voter fraud. AND…the majority of them will be overwhelmingly Republicans. How do I know this? These idiots drink fish tank cleaner and bleach when Donald Trump mentions it. Yeah, a bunch of these idiots will be trying to vote twice. It’s as easy to predict as it was that a bunch of biker goons would peddle out of Sturgis spreading Covid-19.

The other thing is…Donald Trump is only against voter fraud when he’s not endorsing it.

New Book: Tales From the Trumpster Fire

Carolina Cheaters


Republicans love to talk about voter fraud. They can’t shut up about it. Never mind that there were only four documented cases of it in 2016, they can’t stop yapping. They use it as a distraction, a fear tactic, and an excuse for when they lose, but when a case of it is actually discovered, Republicans are silent. Why is that? Because, when it does happen it’s usually committed by…wait for it…REPUBLICANS!!!

A Republican won North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District, which was not a huge surprise. Thanks to gerrymandering, Republicans won ten of that state’s 13 congressional districts despite Democrats receiving 50% of the vote (are you getting tired of that shit yet?). But, that advantage isn’t good enough for some members of the GOP.

The state has decided to delay certification of the results in that district’s election amid allegations of an effort to fill in or discard the absentee ballots of Democratic voters.

Republican Mark Harris, who beat incumbent Robert Pittenger in the primary, leads Democrat Dan McCready in the race by only 905 votes (out of around two hundred and eighty thousand cast).

The state is investigating allegations that an operative for Harris (the Republican) paid people to go door-to-door and collect absentee ballots. In Bladen and Robeson counties, Harris won an unusually high share of mail-in absentee-ballot votes. Bladen was the only county where the Republican prevailed in the mail-in-absentee vote, winning sixty-one percent of the votes from mail-in ballots, despite registered Republicans accounting for only nineteen percent of the county’s returned absentee ballots. The only way that was possible was for Harris to win not only all of the Republican ballots but almost every single mail-in vote from Independents, plus a significant number of votes from crossover Democrats. If you’re a Republican, there’s nothing fishy to this.

Also, in those two counties, about forty percent and sixty-two percent, respectively, of requested mail-in absentee ballots were never turned in. Not surprising at all, In Robeson County, seventy-five percent of the absentee ballots requested by African-Americans and sixty-nine percent of those requested by Native Americans were never received by the state. People don’t normally request absentee ballots to not turn them in. Did they think it was the form for Columbia House (you millennials won’t get that)?

Harris says the state should go ahead and certify his victory while they’re investigating because there aren’t enough missing ballots to change the outcome of the election. But, about sixteen hundred mail-in absentee ballots were requested in the two counties and not returned, in a race decided by fewer than a thousand votes (In case you’re a Republican, 1,000 is less than 1,600). Harris says it’s a disservice to the state not to go ahead and seat him, ignoring the disservice of stealing the election.

Now, there are also questions about the results of the Republican primary. Harris may have even cheated his fellow Republican.

Republicans cheat. They have a Supreme Court that allows PACS to finance campaigns basically without any limits. They gerrymander districts which let Republicans pick their voters instead of the other way around. They suppress votes of minorities when they’re not busy kicking them off the voter rolls. They get help from Russian hackers. And, when they still lose, they use their lame-duck sessions to strip power from the incoming Democrats. Now, they’re literally taking ballots out of Democratic voters’ hands and throwing them away.

The good news is the House of Representatives, which will be controlled by Democrats in January, can refuse to seat Harris. There are calls for a new election in the Ninth District, and there should be, and maybe even another Republican primary.

Voters should be represented by the people they actually vote for, and Republicans should stop taking that away from them.

This week, you’ve probably heard Republicans talk more about French socialism than North Carolina voter fraud.

Side note: Remember the movie The Lost World? I was always bothered by the Tyrannosaurus eating the dog in San Diego. He also ate the screenwriter outside of a Blockbuster, but that’s OK because that guy probably wrote for the dog to die (I bet he was also responsible for the Japanese tourists running from the T-Rex as if it was Godzilla. Yeah, eat that guy). The poor dog was chained to his dog house…in a fenced yard. People, if you can’t have a dog without chaining him where he can’t escape being eaten by dinosaurs, then you don’t deserve to own a dog.

I liked the way the black-and-white version turned out, so I’m gonna let you see that too.

A Cereal Liar


The damage Donald Trump has inflicted on this nation in just the past few years will last for generations. Forty years from now, a couple of people will be sitting in a cafe in Paris debating if the United States is still dumb enough to elect a lying, racist, sexist, stupid, juvenile, corrupt reality TV show host.

Trump sycophants with daddy issues believe their deity has restored international respect and prestige to the United States. In reality, he’s brought scorn and ridicule. Donald Trump is an international dumbass.

The sycos are mad at CNN’s Jim Acosta and believe Trump was right to pull his White House press credentials. They accuse him of being a prima donna and disrespecting the president. At the press conference where Acosta infuriated Trump, the reporter prefaced a question about the caravan by pointing out that it’s not an “invasion.” Why did Acosta do this? Because he doesn’t work for Fox News.

It’s a reporter’s job to push back when a politician lies, especially such blatant Trump lies. That’s why Trump goes to the Daily Caller, a wing-nut publication that won’t push back.

Yesterday, Trump gave an interview to the Caller where he again lied about voter fraud in Florida. But, he compounded his usual stupid lie with an even amazingly dumber one. He said, “When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again. Nobody takes anything. It’s really a disgrace what’s going on.”

It is a disgrace what’s going on. It’s a disgrace that the president of the United States doesn’t just engage in conspiracy theories but also invents them. It’s a disgrace that the reporters he does talk to don’t call him out on it. But, it gets even dumber.

While arguing for voter ID laws, he said, “If you buy a box of cereal — you have a voter ID. They try to shame everybody by calling them racist, or calling them something, anything they can think of, when you say you want voter ID. But voter ID is a very important thing.”

Trump made the claim last August that you need an ID to buy groceries as if going to Kroger is the same as entering The Viper Room. But, needing an ID to buy cereal? Yeah, maybe if you’re a silly rabbit because Trix are for kids.

And changing shirts to vote again? The pollsters would have to be really stupid to be unable to recognize your face because you changed shirts. That’d only work in a Republican primary.

Trump should bounce his lies off a committee, so they can take a vote on whether the lie is too stupid for a president to tell. Of course, any lie Trump tells passes the smell test for his followers, but how about lies for the rest of us? How about something with a little uncertainty, that’d at least make you Google? Some of us aren’t Tomi Lahren.

But, telling us thousands of illegals in an invading caravan full of Middle Easterners desiring to commit cereal fraud isn’t going to swing it. That’s just a Honey Bunches of Bullshit.

Counting Isn’t Cheating


Donald Trump refused to believe Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, often calling it a hoax. He claims the investigation is a “witch hunt.” He trusted Vladimir Putin’s denial over American intelligence, which is part of his government. He claimed millions voted illegally and created a sham commission, now dismantled, to investigate. He campaigned during the midterms on a caravan invasion that the Democrats created to vote in U.S. elections.

Trump called for a new election in the Arizona Senate race, claiming there was corruption. The race has now been called for Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and her Republican opponent, Martha McSally has conceded.

In Georgia, where the race is still too close to call and counting continues, Trump declared Republican Brian Kemp the winner, “the transition should begin”, and “it’s time to move on.”

In the Florida recount, he claims it’s impossible to get an “honest vote count,” and that a “large number of ballots showed up out of nowhere,” and that we “must go with Election Night” numbers.

Donald Trump wants voting to stop. He wants thousands, if not millions of Americans to have their votes disenfranchised, even service members whose votes are still coming in from overseas. He believes counting every vote after he perceives his side has won, amounts to cheating and election fraud.

Donald Trump is the president of the United States of America, and he doesn’t understand how democracy works. We count votes here in the United States. Every vote should be counted. For that matter, other Republicans don’t seem to understand it either.

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp worked hard to remove African Americans from the voter rolls to prevent them from voting in an election in which he was competing. Florida governor Rick Scott, has also accused the recount of being corrupt, and sent law enforcement to oversee the recount.

Scott’s state government has debunked his and Trump’s accusations of voter fraud and corruption. Sure, Broward County, where they’re still counting, is inept at handling elections, but that doesn’t make them corrupt. Republicans are afraid of voters. They’re afraid of every vote being counted. Voters should be afraid of Republicans. If they can’t win fairly, they’ll cheat. Even when the odds, numbers, and demographics are in their favor, they’ll still cheat. They’re like the New England Patriots, except really racist while cheating.

Donald Trump doesn’t understand how Democracy works. Maybe, in 2020, we can show him.

Fun With Voter Intimidation

Donald Trump has been perpetuating a massive lie since before the election, and it’s that rampant voter fraud is plaguing the nation.

To confront this dilemma that doesn’t exist, Trump has created an “election integrity” commission. If we stay on this path then I expect future commissions on vampires, zombies, and people Trump voters who wake up screaming in the night “my god! What have I done?”.

The reality is, this creation of this commission is to serve two purposes: Soothe Trump’s damaged ego over the fact that fewer people voted for him than Hillary Clinton, and to find out who has been voting for Democrats so the Republican-led federal government can create new ways to prevent them from voting.

This commission has sent letters to every state and the District of Columbia asking for information on every single voter. They want names, birth dates, addresses, voting record, party affiliation, and the last four digits of their social security numbers.

The commission argues that much of this information is public record. Fine then, go find it yourself. The States should not be helping Trump and his goon squad from intimidating voters.

It’s always the conservatives who scream and panic over the federal government infringing into their private lives, especially regarding stuff like guns and religion. They’re perfectly fine with it restricting religions they’re not a part of, restricting marriage rights, or a commission made up entirely of old white guys telling women what they can’t do with their bodies. This voter thing may be going a bit too far, even for the troglodytes.

Several states have said they will provide some information, but not all like social security numbers. I don’t think they should give them anything and a few states, like California, New York, and my home Virginia aren’t going to cooperate.

“This entire commission is based on the specious and false notion that there was widespread voter fraud last November,” Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) said in a statement. “At best this commission was set up as a pretext to validate Donald Trump’s alternative election facts, and at worst is a tool to commit large-scale voter suppression.” McAuliffe is not alone.

Alex Padilla, the California secretary of state, said providing data “would only serve to legitimize the false and already debunked claims of massive voter fraud.”

Even conservative states are balking. Mississippi’s secretary of state said they can go “jump in the Gulf of Mexico, and Mississippi is a great state to do that from.” I can vouch for that. Having lived in Mississippi and jumping into the Gulf of Mexico from that state, it was great.

Not to be out-quipped by Mississippi, Kentucky’s secretary of state, Alison Lundergan Grimes said, “there is not enough bourbon here in Kentucky to make this request seem sensible.”

Mike Pence, a man who can be trusted in regards toward your private life, is leading the commission. The vice-chair is Kris Kobach, Secretary of State for Kansas. Kobach has a sketchy history when it comes to investigating voter fraud.

Kobach has lost in court multiple times for attempting to knock voters off the registration in his state. Now he’s trying to do it nationally by requesting the information of over 200 million voters.

Over 25 states have expressed concern over this request. Each and every single one of them should tell Trump, Pence, and Kobach to jump in the Gulf of Mexico.

How bizarre that the man who received help by the Russians to win the White House is worried about brown and black people voting. It’s very peculiar that the reality of Russian meddling in our election can’t be confronted by this man, but he believes in myths such as voter fraud. How about Trump releasing his taxes and financial documents before you tell him which party you’re registered with, or how often you’ve voted over the past decade?

The only fraud is Donald Trump and his entire administration.

It’s really hard being a one-man syndicate when editors (who receive death threats from Trump supporters) are afraid of cartoons with opinions, while I’m also competing against other syndicates with dozens of cartoonists (who offer lots of right-wing cartoons and the kind without any opinions). So your support (if you can) is appreciated. Want to help me continue to create cartoons and keep doing what I’m doing (pissing off conservatives)?

Girl, You Know It’s True


Donald Trump is a liar.

You can’t trust or believe anything Trump tells you. That goes for his deceitful minions too.

Despite a long track record of lying years before he started his presidential campaign voters believed Hillary Clinton was less honest than Trump. Twenty years of a smear campaign against her was very effective and took its toll. Even to the point that this nation elected a conman over her. What does that say about the rest of the Republican field of candidates in the primary?

PolitiFact found that 70 percent of Trump’s statements during the presidential campaign were false. For Clinton, they only found 26 percent.

Trump lied for years about Obama not being born in the United States. He promised he had evidence. A few days before the election he finally admitted Obama was born in the United States. Exhibiting further signs of his narcissism, Trump didn’t admit he was wrong. Instead he blamed the Democrats for starting birtherism and gave himself credit for the great service he did for President Obama and the nation by putting the birther thing to rest. He probably used money from his charity to buy himself a trophy for the accomplishment.

He lied about Ted Cruz’s father being involved in the JFK assassination. He lied about seeing thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating 9/11. He claimed the Mexican government was intentionally sending criminals into our country (Castro did that though). He said the unemployment rate was 42%. He lied when he said Obama was accepting 200,000 refugees from Syria. Who can forget his lie about being against the Iraq war?

The only time Trump has ever admitted he lied was when he said he never did those things he said he did on that tape about assaulting women. So either he was lying on that taped bus ride, or he was lying about lying. My head is starting to spin.

In the first few days of his presidency he’s lied about the numbers at his inauguration, and in an attempt to prove his legitimacy as president, is now claiming that millions of illegal voters cost him the popular vote. He even has his soulless flying monkeys going out to defend and repeat his lies. Trump spokesman Sean Spicer was actually asked at a briefing if he’ll ever intentionally tell the public falsehoods. He lied when he said no.

Politicians lie. Nixon lied when he said he wasn’t a crook. Reagan lied about Iran/Contra. Bill Clinton lied when he said “I did not have sex with that woman.” Each of those lies were to save their political careers. Trump lies because he’s pathological. Trump himself may not even be able to tell the truth from a lie. He often accuses a fact of being a lie.

What is the purpose of all these “alternative facts” other than protecting Trump’s eggshell fragile ego? It’s a distraction. While we’re asking about the stupidity of crowd sizes, his administration is installing gag orders on federal employees. He’s issuing executive orders like crazy on stuff from Obamacare, the Dakota Access Pipeline, a funding ban to foreign groups that provide abortions, directing funds to his border wall and a crackdown on “sanctuary cities,” to declaring his inauguration day as “a Day of Patriotic Devotion.” That last one will make North Korea jealous they didn’t think of it.

I wonder if Trump put a gag order on everyone who criticized Obama for his executive orders because I haven’t heard a thing from those people this week.

Trump is a liar and the press is doing what they can to hold him accountable, all except Joe Scarborough. The New York Times actually used the word “lie” in a front page headline for a Trump story. Usually the press handles that sort of thing more delicately, but Trump has opened the flood gate for these things. Now that the press is holding him accountable, will you?

Creative note: It’s not everyday I get to use a Milli Vanilli joke in a cartoon. And if you’re too young, or too old, to know who they were then that makes me sad.

Flying With Fanatics


It’s bad enough having to listen to Trump nuts at family dinners, your local tavern, on the internet, Fox News, etc. Imagine getting stuck next to one on an airplane. One such passenger seated next to a Trump fanatic whipped out her camera and made a video of the guy standing in the aisle shouting at the other passengers. Apparently Delta Airlines offers seats at window, aisle, and lunatic.

The man asked if there were any “Hillary bitches on the plane,” and continued with “Come on, baby!” “Trump! That’s what I’m talking about. Hey, baby! Donald Trump! He’s your president, every god damn one of you. If you don’t like it, too bad.” Well we don’t like it and it is too bad.

There is something about Donald Trump that inspires stupidity to get even louder than usual. The man was allowed to remain on the flight from Atlanta to Allentown, Pennsylvania which is shocking. Allentown has an airport? Delta eventually banned the guy from their airline for life.

If you think that guy’s crazy another Trump crackpot is claiming Donald Trump actually won the popular vote if you discard the millions of illegal voters. Oh wait…that Trump crackpot is Donald Trump.

Trump has no evidence there was mass voter fraud or that he won the popular vote. At this point Hillary Clinton has two million more votes than Trump. It’s pretty bad when the maniacs who love fake news and conspiracy theories include the president-elect. It’s also really weird that the candidate who won is complaining about the results and claiming voter fraud.

The main thing Trump is upset about is the recount effort in a few states he won by very slim margins. I don’t expect the recount to change the results but we need to conduct them to find out the truth. When there’s accusations of a foreign government hacking into our system and the results were so different from the polls, it needs to be looked into it.

I’m sure Trump will continue not being presidential and take the occasional break from using the presidency to enrich his corporation and appointing Nazis to his cabinet to tweet out new conspiracy theories.
