Wednesday Hump Day Cartoons: US Good…Putin Bad

img_2709

 

Good Morning

Even this baby knows how bad things are.


I read a link on Facebook, it said that Twitter was deleting tRump’s Twit account. I got all excited!

Of course, it is bullshit.

But isn’t it lovely to think so….that something like Twitter deleting tRump’s account, could actually happen.

Here are a few cartoons for you today. (My mom finally sees the oncologist today, so hopefully there is some action in the way of surgery planned. Soon.)

Wednesday Hump Day Cartoons: What does the orange twit say now?


As you may have guessed, tRump was sounding off on his twatter again. You would think that the powers that be (if there is still a thing like…actually is looking out for the country’s best interest) that someone would take the man’s Twitter access away. Right?

But to put tRump’s bragging aside, yes please! The main thing getting attention last night on twitter was Bill O’Reilly. The asswipe is not even using dog whistles anymore. He is just whipping out the flagrant bigoted bullshit for all to see.

 

 
I don’t think these jerk offs are going to be subtle any longer.  Take this latest from Newt:

Gingrich says Trump can’t be expected to follow ethics laws, so Congress should change them for him

During a Monday appearance on NPR, Trump adviser Newt Gingrich argued that Congress should consider changing ethics laws so President-elect Donald Trump could freely mix his administration and his business interests.

“We’ve never seen this kind of wealth in the White House, and so traditional rules don’t work,” Gingrich said during a panel discussion on “The Diane Rehm Show.” “We’re going to have to think up a whole new approach.”

The “new approach” Gingrich has in mind also involves Trump liberally using his pardon powers to extract his advisers — including, at least during the presidential transition, three of his adult children — from whatever legal troubles they might find themselves in.

“In the case of the president, he has a broad ability to organize the White House the way he wants to. He also has, frankly, the power of the pardon,” Gingrich said, in comments first covered by Politico. “It’s a totally open power. He could simply say, ‘Look, I want them to be my advisers. I pardon them if anyone finds them to have behaved against the rules. Period.’ Technically, under the Constitution, he has that level of authority.”

Gingrich suggested Congress should consider changing ethics laws so Trump can freely intermingle his business interests and duties as president. He also floated the idea of a Trump-created “panel” led by former government officials that can help monitor his conflicts of interest.

“Congress can try to figure out how to do this,” he said. “I’ve suggested that people who are widely respected, like Attorney General [Michael] Mukasey, might — that the president-elect might want to form a panel who are sort of a review group, if that makes sense, and that the panel would monitor regularly what was going on and would offer warnings if they get too close to the edge.”

Can you believe this shit? Well…yeah of course you can.

And with that, here are your political cartoons for the week.

12/14 Mike Luckovich: The real threat. | Mike Luckovich

I’m glad today is cartoon day, because after the super disturbing news feeds of slaughter in Aleppo, or the various tRump cabinet appointments/nominees and/or visitors to his Penthouse White House, be it breaking stories about tRump’s business ties are jeopardizing the US and the security threats they cause…and all the news from different states, how women are losing their rights and getting fucked with no source of day after pill. It is like every tweet that twit sends out only justifies the fear that grips me…and makes me numb.

Wednesday Hump Day Cartoons: Kiss Asssssssss

I saw a post on Facebook yesterday, it said that Media Matters is changing their focus from primarily Fox News to fake news websites and Facebook. The post was from a Politco page on FB.  So I take it to be true….right?

Media Matters to pivot away from focus on Fox News, as it names new president – POLITICO

Then you have political editorial cartoons, which are beautiful things.

That’s about as close to the truth as you can get…meaning there is absolutely no false news reports in that imagery.

Romney Kisses Trump Butt | DarylCagle.com
That is a Cagle cartoon, and they are very obsessive about their cartoons. Now that article also includes a discussion on how he came up with the idea.

I will give you links to the Cagle Cartoons below and hope that you visit the site and check them out.

Many of these are from foreign cartoonist. So you can get the feel of how #tRump is being received around the world.

This is all I have for you today.

My mother has just been diagnosed with malignant ovarian cancer. We don’t know what stage it is in…or what treatment, if any…is available. As you can imagine things are fucking hell at home. She sees the specialist, a gynecologist oncologist on the 12th.

Anyway, going forward… my Wednesday threads will be a round-up of political cartoons. This has always been one of my favorite post to put up…they are quick and fun, and still substantial because I think political editorial cartoons are so essential in this political climate. Especially now that tRump is in and any chance of the media or press holding him accountable for his actions is out.

The Safety Pin Movement Comes To America

People in the United States are now wearing safety pins in solidarity with those who might be denigrated or made afraid in a post-election America.

I reported on the post-Brexit safety pin movement back in June.

Only to share these cartoons with you.

Wednesday Reads: Save me from the ruddy necks. 

Hack. Cough. Ugh.

Sorry this is late, but errands…and pressing matters kept me from posting this earlier.

Out and about this morning, the Banjoville populi (is that correct?) was out in force. So many camo ball caps, confederate flags and Trump signs…so little time.

But enough of the generalizing, lets get on with the cartoons, because that is all we have strength for after the last night’s debate.
