Zelensky

Putin On The Fit


I dedicate this cartoon to all my conservative political cartooning colleagues who are upset over President Biden’s surprise visit to Ukraine last week. And before you start to think that I enjoy beating up on MAGAt cartoonists, let me assure you, I do.

I’m not going to link to any of their cartoons today because I don’t feel like doing the work of looking them up and I have an eye appointment. But, I saw cartoons from Steve Kelley and Dana Summers where both whined about Biden giving money to Ukraine during his visit and not giving any to East Palestine. Republicans hate social welfare and many in Congress will vote against disaster relief when the disaster isn’t in their state. But here, they’re advocating for corporate welfare because the mess in East Palestine is an expense that should be covered by the corporation that caused it.

I saw a cartoon by Gary McCoy where he claimed there were “fake air raid sirens” during Biden’s visit to Kyiv. What the hell is a “fake air raid siren?” Wouldn’t that be someone doing the sound with their mouth? What’s that noise, is it an air raid siren? No, that’s just Gary being a whiny little hypocritical Putin-loving beyotch again. In the same cartoon, Gary blamed President Biden for Putin’s threats to use nuclear weapons. It’s like blaming somebody for waking up the baby. Of course, you don’t blame the baby, but Putin is not a baby.

At least Ted Rall is paid by Russia to carry Putin’s water (and he attacked Biden’s trip too). Is Putin paying the other goons too?

These goons don’t want to blame the company that created the toxic disaster in East Palestine and they don’t want to blame the fascist dictator who is threatening armageddon. The GOP is NOT the party of responsibility.

Even if the air raid sirens going off in Kyiv during Biden’s visit were “fake,” Gary and whoever else is making that claim ignores that President Biden traveled through Ukraine by train for ten hours. And then ten hours on his return trip. That’s 20 hours when a Russian bomb could have hit President Biden’s train. Yes, Putin was given advance notice that President Biden was visiting Ukraine, but that was a gamble itself. They were trusting that the guy threatening nuclear war and has intentionally dropped bombs on daycare centers wouldn’t want an international incident of murdering an American president. Maybe they told him Trump was on the train.

And just because it was stupid, Gary Varvel drew President Biden riding a snail labeled “FEMA,” not realizing that what happened in East Palestine doesn’t fall under FEMA’s directive.

Biden’s trip was historic. It was the first time an American president visited a war zone that wasn’t occupied by American troops. He was in a danger zone. Russian missiles and bombs hit Ukraine. It was extremely brave and heroic of President Biden to visit. It was everything Republicans would love if one of their guys did it. They would have called it “manly.” If Trump did it, they would say it was an act by the “alpha male.” So of course, they’re trying to diminish what Biden did. All they have to do this with is Trump’s visit to East Palestine where he gave out Trump-branded water and MAGA hats.

It sure was nice of Trump to visit the site of a train derailment while President Biden is in office because he sure didn’t do it for any of the thousands of train derailments during the four years he was president (sic). But maybe the fact the entire Trump presidency (sic) was a train wreck makes up for his lack of visit.

They love to claim that while President Biden was in Ukraine, Trump, the guy who called for terminating the Constitution, was in East Palestine putting America first.

It doesn’t matter what either guy does according to the MAGAts. To them, Biden is a horrible person because maybe two dozen classified documents were found on his property, while Trump had every right to steal thousands of documents. You can’t win with the goons. They ignore reality like the fact Donald Trump is a racist.

President Biden walked through a war zone under the threat of bombs falling on him. Donald Trump is afraid of getting his hair wet.

Cake Treason


February 24 will be the first anniversary of Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine. It’ll be the first anniversary of Vladimir Putin bombing churches, hospitals, schools, apartments, playgrounds, and the civilian population of Ukraine. It will not be the first anniversary of Putin being a war criminal because he’s been doing that his entire life.

I’ve been expecting President Biden to pay a surprise visit to Ukraine which he did this morning, visiting the capital, Kyiv, and strolling outside with President Volodymir Zelenskyy while air sirens were blaring.

I think Russia’s war criminal of a president was hoping to visit Kyiv before President Biden, so this trip is an insult to him. But, he has support in the United States.

Matt Gaetz said, “When our border is in crisis, Joe Biden goes home to nap in Delaware. When Ohio burns with toxic chemicals, Biden’s admin says everything is fine. So on President’s Day, I’m not surprised that Biden is ditching America for Ukraine. He ditched America’s interests since the start of his presidency. They can keep him!”

Freshman Senator Eric Schmitt, tweeted, “If you want to understand why so many Americans are frustrated right now: Biden is in Ukraine before Ohio.”

Josh Hawley said, “No time to visit East Palestine, Ohio but plenty of time for this.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted, “This is incredibly insulting. Today on our President’s Day, Joe Biden, the President of the United States chose Ukraine over America, while forcing the American people to pay for Ukraine’s government and war. I can not express how much Americans hate Joe Biden.” Then she repeated calls to impeach President Biden without specifying any crimes he’s committed.

Senator Tommy Tuberville, who thinks the three branches of government are the House, Senate, and White House, tweeted, “#POTUS has now spent more time in Ukraine than he has at our southern border. @JoeBiden refuses to address the AMERICAN crisis that will impact generations and poses an immediate threat to our national security.”

Representative Scott Perry tweeted, “Breathtaking that President Biden can show up in Ukraine to ensure their border is secure, but can’t do the same for America.”

I can’t tell you what Ted Rall is tweeting about it because he blocked me several months ago for pointing out he works for Russia and has a permanent Putin boner, but I’m pretty sure he’s filling a diaper over it right about now.

Take note that each of these Republicans are goons for Putin. They were fine with Donald Trump kissing Putin’s ass and handing over classified information to the Russians. They were fine with Donald Trump praising Putin and calling him a “genius” for his invasion of Ukraine. Also take note that a few of these goons asked Trump for pardons for their involvement of his coup attempt.

Also, take note that President Biden has dispatched federal resources to East Palestine. For some reason, Republicans really want a photo-op.

We are supporting democracy over fascism with our support for Ukraine. President Biden’s visit is moral support to Ukraine and a slap in the face to Russia…and obviously, to Russia’s supporters here in the states. What will Tucker, “Why should I hate Putin?,” say tonight on his show?

The goons love to point out that Russia didn’t invade Ukraine while Trump was president (sic) as if Putin was afraid of how Trump would react. Ha. Yet, they’re upset we’re supporting Ukraine militarily. MTG even tweeted a lie this morning that Zelenskyy is commanding U.S. troops in Ukraine.

But the reason Russia didn’t invade Ukraine while Trump was president (sic) is that it didn’t have to. Invading Ukraine has given NATO renewed purpose and in fact, has increased the size of NATO by two more nations. Why would Putin have given NATO a renewed purpose while Trump was trying to destroy it?

President Biden bravely visited a war zone while cowardly Republicans are tweeting in the safety of their offices…all except Matt Gaetz. There’s no telling how many STDs have contaminated that office which is probably more toxic than East Palestine.

President Biden visits a war zone while air sirens are sounding. Donald Trump canceled a trip to a former war zone because the rain would mess up his hair. Apparently, bleached skunk carcasses don’t do well in humidity.

An American president is supposed to be able to multitask. He can direct aid to East Palestine, Ohio, and work on border issues while representing the United States on an international trip. He’s currently visiting Poland but none of these Republicans have mentioned that, just Ukraine which is very telling.

The thing about President Biden that upsets Republicans the most is that he’s a good president. He’s visiting a war zone while Donald Trump is golfing at his country club…unless it rains.

Take note: I did a cartoon on the one-year anniversary of Putin’s illegal invasion for CNN, which I’ll post here later.

Read The Room


One thing that President Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to the White House and address to a joint session of Congress did yesterday was help the anti-democratic pro-Putin fascists expose themselves.

Sure, they’ve been doing this for a while, but we got to see seven Republicans sit on their hands for the majority of Zelensky’s speech yesterday. These GOP goons were Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Lauren Boebert, Andrew Clyde, Diana Harshbarger, Warren Davidson, and Michael Cloud. What did they disagree with about Zelensky’s pro-democracy speech?

The truth is, they don’t want to support someone who opposes Putin, but they don’t want to come out directly and praise Putin, except for Trump, who called Putin a “genius” for his invasion of Ukraine. What they try to do is disguise it.

Kevin McCarthy tried to disguise it by pretending to be a fiscal conservative, which he’s not. He said after the GOP takes over the House in the next session, that there will be no more “blank checks” for Ukraine. Lauren Boebert howled about sending $47 billion to Ukraine and attacked Mitch McConnell for his support. The $47 billion is the Republican’s number, and not all of it is going to Ukraine.

Donald Trump Jr, who inherited everything he has, attacked President Zelensky and called him a “welfare queen.” He probably would have said the same thing if he was around when we were sending military support to the UK and Winston Churchill to fight Hitler and the Nazis.

A pro-Putin fascist with a bought blue checkmark tweeted conspiracy theories at me this morning that was created by Putin. He also accused Zelensky of being a “warmonger” even though it was Russia that invaded Ukraine, not the other way around.

Marjorie Taylor Greene has consistently opposed supporting Ukraine stating, “It’s not our responsibility to give Zelensky and the Ukrainian people false hope about a war they cannot win,” although they are winning. She also claimed that Democrats care more about Ukraine’s border than our southern border with Mexico as if Mexicans are bombing U.S. churches, schools, and daycare centers.

Ted Rall, an American cartoonist who “draws” for Putin, claims Ukraine is corrupt while ignoring Russian corruption and that nation’s fascism. He also spreads lies that President Biden is taking bribes, which Republicans also spread.

Another pro-Putin cartoonist, Gary McCoy, posted outrage on Facebook that we’re sending $44 billion to Ukraine while antibiotics are being rationed at Walgreens. Somehow in the MAGAt mind, there’s a correlation there.

Other MAGAts are crying that our supply of weapons is dwindling because we’re sending it all to Ukraine. We spend over $800 billion a year on our military so I think we’re going to be OK. We have warehouses and stockpiles of military supplies that will never be used. Others cry that this is padding the pockets of the military-industrial complex. Again, we spend over $800 billion a year. Now you’re concerned about enriching the industry that manufactures weapons?

And then there’s the complaint that the money we send to Ukraine isn’t being accounted for. I don’t know where this one comes from because from all appearances, it seems Ukraine is putting it to great use, proven by the fact Russia hasn’t won the war and Ukraine is actually retaking territory. For me, watching Russia retreat is our audit.

Here’s the thing, goons: Sending money to Ukraine to fight Russia is money well spent. Russia is our enemy and we’re not fighting them. We’re not sending troops. Instead, Ukraine is inflicting a beating on our greatest enemy and weakening it for future conflicts. Russia is a nation that continues to attack us in an attempt to destroy our democracy. They worked to put a pro-fascist racist goon into the White House. They have it coming. I don’t know if $47 billion is enough.

I’m going to continue to support Ukraine because supporting its war against Russia is pro-America. Those who support Putin and Russia are anti-American. They are the enemies of this nation and democracy.

I stand with Ukraine. Go, Ukraine!

Zelensky Loves It


cjones11222019

Donald Trump made an unannounced, surprise, mysterious visit to the hospital over the weekend. The White House is in denial mode that there was an emergency for the 73-year-old obese manbaby, and his physician issued a statement saying, “regular, primary preventative care.”

Presidents get physicals once a year so why all the speculation? Because this was unannounced, his last physical was in February, Trump isn’t a picture of health, and he and this White House lie.

Stephanie Grisham, the White House Press Secretary, was indignant as she attacked the press for speculating on the visit and described an incredibly fit president full of energy. I mean, what’s wrong with us that after over 13,000 lies, that we don’t believe this one? Who wouldn’t believe their explanation that Trump is taking his physical in stages?

Personally, I’m kinda surprised part of their defense isn’t that President Volodymyr Zelensky loves that ass.

While it hasn’t been reported if Trump underwent a colonoscopy during his last visit, there are plenty of sycophants who have crawled up that ass.

David Holmes, the political counselor at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, testified before Congress in a closed hearing that he overhead Donald Trump speaking to European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland over an unsecured cell phone. Holmes testified that he could hear Trump ask Sondland if Zelensky was going to investigate his political enemies. Sondland replied he would do anything Trump asks him to do and that “he loves your ass.”

After the call, conducted from a popular restaurant in Kyiv, Ukraine, Sondland told Holmes that Trump didn’t “give a shit” about Ukraine and only cared about the “big stuff” going on in Ukraine. No, not “big stuff” like the war with Russia, but “big stuff” like investigating Joe Biden.

Trump and the people who love his ass lie about everything, big and small, from a routine physical to bribing a foreign president. The more testimony that comes out about his dealings with Ukraine, the more his ass is exposed. The only thing that will save his presidency are the Republicans in Congress who love his ass.

The best thing for this nation will be Trump’s ass getting impeached. And take the rest of him with it.
