Wednesday Reads: Passing the Death Bill …Hump Day Cartoons 

The assholes are determined to pass the death bill. Meanwhile, Dak is hunkered down amongst torrential rainstorms and tornadoes.

Wednesday Reads: Butkus or Buttkiss? Hump Day Cartoons 

Something tells me, that you will get a sense of where the title of this post is coming from…

…by the sample of these first few images and cartoons. 

Oh…shit. I’m getting ahead of myself. 

Let me post a few links, and then get to the cartoons. 

Aw, fuck the links. 

I wasn’t able to bring myself to watch the show yesterday. I think it is difficult for me to watch all this testimony going on, when I know the Senate is working behind those closed doors to kill my mother. 

Here is a cartoon with commentary from Pat Bagley:

Innit the truth. 

I can’t much wrap my head around anything else nowadays. 

Here are the rest of today’s cartoons…I hope you enjoy them. 

You will have to click on the link to see that one by Luckovich in full size. 

And remember as you look at many of these cartoons, they are from the foreign press/political cartoonist. 


And on that note…..This is an open thread. 


Wednesday Reads: tRumpaholics … Hump Day Cartoons 


One of the first things we were taught in my survey of politics course when I was Junior in college, was the importance of pens in Washington D.C. 

LBJ made them a big deal, when signing legislation…he would sign his name…each letter with a different pen, and then give this special pens out to those individuals “worthy” of receiving this particular enhanced acknowledgement. If you were lucky enough to get a pen from Johnson… you were a big deal in Washington. Those pens were like a gift from the king. 

It was just another form of manipulation that LBJ used to get what he wanted through congress. 

The pen give away has been used since then. We always see Presidents signing bills with a series of pens next to the documents. It is what it is. 

Now we come to the pretender in chief. 

This ridiculousness has happened:

This is not a bill. This is a fucking memo. 

It is like a Postit note to Congress. 


Now for the cartoons. *

*Sidenote here. I’ve written this post on Tuesday morning because my mother is meeting with the oncology surgeon on Wednesday…and I knew I would never be able to write the post the same day it was to be published. I’m sure tRump has done something totally embarrassing, so please be sure to update us all in the comments section below. 

I think the hands are drawn too big in this one:

Wednesday Reads: COVFEFE? Hump Day Cartoons 

#COVFEFE

The latest in a never-ending list of fuck-ups from Kremlin tRump. 

 

 

What the hell else can be expected?

Franken mocks Trump’s ‘covfefe’ tweet | TheHill

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) on Wednesday mocked President Trump for his late Wednesday tweet that appeared to be unfinished and included the word “covfefe” in an apparent typo.

“A covfefe is a Yiddish term for ‘I got to go to bed now,'” Franken joked during an interview on CNN’s “New Day.”

“I think … he got that from Jared, I guess,” he added, referring to Jared Kushner, the White House senior adviser and Trump’s son-in-law. Kushner is Jewish.

 

“I think this is the least disturbing thing in the history of the Trump administration,” he joked.

“Covfefe” became the No. 1 trend on Twitter across the U.S. early Wednesday morning after Trump sent out what appeared to be an unfinished tweet with a typo.

“Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” Trump tweeted shortly after midnight.

Trump deleted the tweet just before 6 a.m.

And replaced it with this shit:

Trump targets ‘negative press covfefe’ in garbled midnight tweet that becomes worldwide joke – The Washington Post

I really hate this man.

Wednesday Reads: tRumpy + Bibi BFF …Hump Day Cartoons 


Anyone with half of a brain can see it…well, maybe that is giving some dumbasses too much credit.

 

‘Pope looks like he’s being held against his will’: The internet goes nuts over Trump’s weird Vatican photos

 

Donald Trump and some of his family members met Pope Francis — and social media users couldn’t help but notice the Holy Father didn’t look too happy about it.

Trump appeared grinning in photos with the Pope, whose dour expression never changed, and both first lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump wore black veils.

See what I mean. That picture is everything.

Want a close-up?

Funny how just a few hours ago this was the image that seemed to define the trip so far:


tRump’s trip to places not America isn’t going well, not that I expected anything less. Honestly, this picture above is a perfect showcase of the orange idiot’s true mental capacity….as the image made its way across the social media scene. This was what tRump wrote as his parting thought when he signed Israeli Holocaust Memorial Guestbook. Imagine, the only thing tRump left out of this Happy Yearbook sign off was the tRumpy BFF Bibi inside a big heart.

Seriously…he put exclamation points! WTF!!!!

Here is a side by side of Obama’s message compared to tRump.

It isn’t like this is the only news out there:


Now on the cartoons because what else can you say about that?

Wednesday Reads: History Repeating… Hump Day Cartoons 

Think of tRump and his Regime as

Super Horse…

Nothing to see here:

 

 

After the Tuesday Massacre a lot of newsy people were using Nixon as a callback…a reference to history repeating.

History News Network | The Firing of the FBI Director: What Historians Are Saying on Social Media

(Historians are not so quick to make that assessment.)

I actually think this is much worse…

 

 

But I have to say…I love the little hands flipping the bird, yeah…that is tRump alright. Giving us the old “Fuck You America!”

 

In other troubling news:

 

Oh yeah….by the way…

Bottom line:

Here are your cartoons for today:
