Melting down... (Don the Con) - Trump has repeatedly asked aides if they can pursue a purchase of Greenland from Denmark. His interest in Greenland began in part because of its natural resources, like coal and uranium. - Danish politicians mock report Trump wants to buy Greenland: “If he is truly contemplating this, then this is final proof, that he has gone mad." - “I think we take it as a sick joke," says one Greenlander. - Denmark says it would be interested to buying the United States in its entirety, with the exception of its government. - The difference between Trump and Greenland? Greenland is not for sale. - Greenland contains enough ice to make world sea levels rise by 20 feet if it were all to melt. In a single day this month, it lost a record 13.7 billion tons by one estimate. If you don't think we're already in a climate emergency, you're in denial. #DonTheCon #GrifterInChief #Greenland #TrumpGreenland #Distraction #NoArtNoDeal #ClimateChange #ClimateDenial #ScienceDenial #ClimateReality #MortenMorland @jonostrove #BrucePlante #DaveGranlund #MiltPriggee #BartVanLeeuwen #JohnDarkow @morintoon #RandyBish @clayjonz #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #Comics #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
Meaningful... (Background checks) - Trump tweets: "Serious discussions are taking place between House and Senate leadership on meaningful Background Checks. I have also been speaking to the NRA, and others, so that their very strong views can be fully represented and respected. Guns should not be placed in the hands of.........mentally ill or deranged people. I am the biggest Second Amendment person there is, but we all must work together for the good and safety of our Country. Common sense things can be done that are good for everyone!" - “We need intelligent background checks,” Trump says, claiming that Senate Majority Leader McConnell is “totally on board” and senators he describes as Second Amendment hardliners “understand.” He says he thinks the NRA could get there also. "A gun doesn't pull the trigger, a sick mind pulls the trigger," Trump says, echoing the NRA's line. #DonTheCon #GaslighterInChief #TrumpLies #TrumpTweets #GunViolence #MassShootings #TrumpBlames #MentalIllness #VideoGames #GunLegislation #BackgroundChecks #NRA #MassacreMitch #GunLobby #Congress #BillBramhall @matt_davies_draws #RobRogers #JimmyMargulies @kevin.siers #SteveSack #BartVanLeeuwen #ClayBennett #DebMilbrath #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #Comics #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
His type... (Strongmen) - At the G20 summit Trumpy joked with Putin about fake news and meddling in our elections. - Trump, now the first sitting U.S. president to enter North Korea, has zilch to show for toadying to Kim – who continues North Korea’s nuclear program. Only burnishes Kim’s reputation. This isn't diplomacy. It's just more Trump show-biz and optics. A photo op Kim Jong Un is already using for his propaganda. - How to explain Trump's whacky coddling of Kim Jung-un, Crown Prince MBS, Vladimir Putin? Only one explanation: Trump gets along best with sociopathic dictators whose authoritarian instincts he admires and whose absolute power he envies. Legitimize dictators and delegitimize allies. Good plan.

Honor... (On both sides) - "On the 75th anniversary of D-Day, President Trump reflects on sacrifice, the value of allies, and the imperative to stand up to dictators rather than appeasing them with uncritical praise. Just kidding, he’s complaining about critical news coverage and bashing a cable news host." - Brian Klaas - There is something profoundly sad and frightening about D-Day being commemorated during an era where fascism is growing not diminishing. - The truest way we honor those who gave their lives fighting tyranny 75 years ago is to fight tyranny wherever we find it today. Even here, in the land of liberty. #DonTheCon #DDay75 #FascistInChief #CadetBoneSpurs #BoneSpurs  #Allies #WorldWar2  #GreatestGeneration  #Military #Army #ForeignPolicy #NATO #Normandy #OmahaBeach @bagleycartoons #RJMatson #SteveBreen #GraemeMacKay #DaveGranlund #PeterKuper #BartVanLeeuwen #JimmyMargulies @clayjonz #TimCampbell #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #Comics #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
Freedom... (To choose) - Women’s reproductive rights are under an all-out assault across the country. Woman's choice should be between her and her doctor — not our government. - We won't have true reproductive freedom in America until anyone who can get pregnant can also access abortion without shame, stigma, or unnecessary obstacles. - Let me be clear: these bans won’t stop women from seeking abortions. It will just make them less safe. Abortion care is health care – period. #VoteBlue America! #StopTheBans #ReproductiveRights #ReproductiveFreedom #Abortion #RoeVWade #HeartbeatBills #AbortionBan #AbortionRights #WomensRights #ProChoice #ChoiceMatters #RoeVsWade #HealthCare #DonTheCon @righthandedleftyartist #JoelPett @murphycartoons #RobRogers @signewilk #RichardCodor #BartVanLeeuwen #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #Comics #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
Checkmate... (Co-conspirators) Michael Cohen gave the House Intelligence Committee evidence yesterday proving Conald’s attorneys helped edit the false written statement he gave to Congress in 2017. Adam Schiff says Cohen "provided important testimony and materials relevant to the core of our probe" during his testimony. Six more checks to Cohen shed light on the parallel lives Trumpy was living as president of the United States — at once managing affairs of state while secretly paying the price of keeping his personal secrets out of the public eye. Cohen testified Conald knew about the hush money payments, gave copies of the checks signed by Trumpy, but I guess hard evidence isn't enough for McConnell and Senate Republicans. BUT the majority of American voters believe President Trump engaged in criminal activity before taking office and more believe Michael Cohen (50%) than the president (35%), according to new a Quinnipiac University poll. After Cohen's testimony: "64% of registered voters said Trumpy had committed crimes before entering office and nearly half of voters -- 45% -- think he committed crimes while serving as President." #DonTheCon #GrifterInChief #FinancialCrimes #HushMoney #CoverUps #MichaelCohen #CohenHearings #Evidence #Checks #ChecksAndBalances #GOPComplicit #TrumpCrimes #Arcadio #RobRogers #BartVanLeeuwen #MiltPriggee #DavidFitzsimmons #AndyMarlette #KenCatalino #DebMilbrath #BillBramhall #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #Comics #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
Spin... (Casting blame) Trumpy tweets: "For the Democrats to interview in open hearings a convicted liar & fraudster, at the same time as the very important Nuclear Summit with North Korea, is perhaps a new low in American politics and may have contributed to the “walk.” Never done when a president is overseas. Shame!" Conald should write a book called "The Art of Blaming Everyone Else." This is called "psychological projection" and is defined as a "defense mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others." Trumpy's afraid and he should be: House Judiciary Committee to issue document requests today to 60 different people and entities connected to Conald to "begin the investigations to present the case to the American people about obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power." #DonTheCon #BlamerInChief #TrumpKimSummit #MichaelCohen #CohenHearing #TrumpLies #TrumpTweets #Projection #Deflection #ButTheDemocrats #Oversight #ObstructionOfJustice #AbuseOfPower BUT #MAGA, amirite? #DebMilbrath #RickMcKee #BillBramhall @bob.englehart #TheoMoudakis #DavidRowe #JoepBertrams #BartVanLeeuwen #HajodeReijger #DaveGranlund #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
So we wait... (Sunday show wrap-up) - Former Trump Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert says Conald's second summit with Kim Jong Un "will be a dud if (Trumpy) comes out and tries to varnish this as a success without any real actionable activity." Jung Pak said "I think there has been a profound shift in talking about peace and normalization with North Korea, rather than the nuclear issues and I think that's really problematic." “I concur,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says after Jake Tapper notes there haven’t been “concrete” North Korea steps on denuclearization. “There are many things he could do to demonstrate his commitment to” denuclearize. Last June, Trump tweeted: “There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.” Hmm... - Will the Republican leadership in the Senate allow a vote on a resolution to block the emergency declaration? Sen. Roy Blunt says, “I don’t think we have a choice.” He adds that he doesn’t know if he’ll vote for it but says he doesn’t “like the process” the President used. Sen. Ed Markey talks about Conald’s emergency declaration: “I think in the courts we are going to have a very strong case that this is an unconstitutional action by the president in usurping an authority which was deliberately built into the constitution.” - Rep. Adam Schiff warns that the House would subpoena for Mueller report, bring Mueller to the Hill to testify and says the House may potentially challenge the administration in court for the report if it isn’t released. “If this is a witch hunt, Mueller has found a coven.” - Neal Katyal says on Meet the Press #DonTheCon #PutinsPuppet #TrumpKimSummit #KimJongUn #NorthKorea #Denuclearization #EmergencyDeclaration #NationalEmergency #TheConstitution #LegalChallenges #Congress #MuellerReport #ObstructionOfJustice #FakeNews @halltoons #BartVanLeeuwen #MarianKamensky #RobRogers #DavidFitzsimmons #MikePeters @morintoon #SteveSack #ClareCrooke #StuartCarlson #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #Comics #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
Arm's race... ("Willful ignorance") Some important items from last week: - Trumpy had another undisclosed mtg with Putin (one on one) - Trumpy pulled us out of another agreement, INF Treaty (helps Putin) - Trumpy rolled back sanctions on Deripaska, and has not sanctioned on UK gas attack - Trumpy not listening to US intelligence chiefs - Russia says it will build weapons previously banned under a nuclear disarmament treaty and will no longer initiate talks with the U.S. on any matters related to nuclear arms control. But sure, Conald has been "tougher on Russia" than any president EVER. Ronald Reagan is definitely rolling over in his grave. #DonTheCon #PutinsPuppet #TrumpRussia #DuckAndCover #INF #INFTreaty #Russia #RonaldReagan #ColdWar #DejaVu #Nukes #NuclearTreaty #NuclearArms #NuclearWar #PutinsWinning #ButAmericaFirst #NationalEmergency @halltoons #BartVanLeeuwen #DaveGranlund #MarianKamensky @morintoon #KeithJTaylor #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #Comics #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
Brain freeze... (Conald's, but early spring) Happy Groundhog Day! Why is it that only in America do we accept weather predictions from a rodent, but deny climate change evidence from scientists? Everyday in the Trump era is like Groundhog Day. Stupid, racist, sexist, scandal, repeat. "In sad news, Trump just had Punxsutawney Phil arrested by ICE because he claims Phil entered America illegally as part of groundhog caravan back in 2014." - Dean Obeidallah Trumpy's family business employed undocumented workers more broadly than previously believed. Multiple workers lost their jobs last month at Trump's Pine Hill, NJ golf club — the 3rd Trump property where undocumented workers have been fired since December. So happy that Punxsutawney Phil predicted an Early Spring. Now if only Phil could predict when Conald will be removed. #DonTheCon #ConspiracyTheoristInChief #GroundhogDay #PunxsutawneyPhil #PolarVortex #ClimateChange #ClimateDenial #ScienceDenial #ClimateReality #IllegalImmigration #UndocumentedWorkers #TrumpGolfClubs #BorderWall #TrumpShutdown #MuellerIsComing @adamzyglis #StuartCarlson @clayjonz #DaveGranlund @rjmatsoncartoons @slyngstad_cartoons #BillBramhall #ChipBok #BartVanLeeuwen #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #Comics #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
Stoned... (Rabble Roger) Roger Stone, a well-known exaggerator and accused liar, said he was treated worse than Osama bin Laden. He said: "To storm my house with greater force than was used to take down Bin Laden or El Chapo or Pablo Escobar, to terrorize my wife and my dogs, it’s unconscionable." Yesterday morning as he left for DC, Stone spoke to reporters outside his home in Fort Lauderdale: "Had they contacted my attorneys, I would've voluntarily turned myself in. I would've been able to wear a suit and tie for my mugshot. It would've looked a lot better." Pablo got shot. Bin Laden was also killed in the raid. What a nonsense comparison this is! The FBI didn't bust a grape in Fort Lauderdale. Roger was politely asked to step outside. On Hannity last night, Stone's ludicrous conspiracy theory: "They're trying to criminalize free speech... I honestly believe they're going to try to charge POTUS & VP on hokum. That way they can make Pelosi president. She can make Hillary vice president & then step aside. It's a nightmare." Stone set to appear in DC court today and hopefully the no-nonsense judge assigned to Stone’s case who has already demonstrated that she’s got little patience for defendants who misbehave will issue a gag order as she did on Manafort and later revoked his bail and threw him in jail. #DonTheCon #RogerStone #RogerStoneIndicted #MuellerInvestigation #TrumpRussia #StonePublicityTour #StoneLies #ConspiracyTheories #PardonMe #PrisonTats @adamzyglis #RobRogers #DarylCagle #PattysPencilCartoons #BartVanLeeuwen #DanWasserman #JerryHolbert #MikeSmith @morintoon #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #Comics #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
Consequences... (SOTU) "It would be so very sad for our Country if the State of the Union were not delivered on time, on schedule, and very importantly, on location!" Trumpy writes in letter to Pelosi, saying he wants to fulfill her original invite to speak next week in House. Pelosi says no-dice. Says she won't allow resolution for SOTU until government re-opens. This isn’t hard. Paying a ransom to hostage takers only incentivizes them to take more hostages. Conald on Pelosi: “She’s afraid of the super-left Democrats, the radical Democrats. What’s going on in that party is shocking...Nancy Pelosi, or Nancy as I call her, she doesn’t want to know the truth... I think that’s a great blotch (😂!!!) on the great country we all love.” Conald further said Democrats led by Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer are a "very dangerous party for this country." "We are not going to allow the radical left to control our country," he said. Trumpy says Schumer is "a puppet for Nancy Pelosi." Says he is being "dominated" by Pelosi. #DonTheCon #BlotchInChief #TrumpLies #TrumpDeflection #TrumpShutdown #BorderWall #VanityProject #ManhoodThing #ChuckAndNancy #RadicalLeft #NancyPelosi #SpeakerPelosi #SOTU #RJMatson @bob.englehart @matt_davies_draws #MikeSmith #BillBramhall #DavidFitzsimmons #BartVanLeeuwen #TomToles #WaltHandelsman #IvanElhers #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #Comics #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
Stuck... (In narcissism) "There is one reason I can imagine Trump finding a way to open the government by January 29. He desperately wants to give the State of the Union to Congress. It's always, always about his vanity." - Tony Schwartz Ironically, Ann Coulter is now bullying Conald. On Saturday, she mocked Trumpy's 'amnesty' for Dreamers...calling him a “gutless president.” And recently, she called him a "shallow, lazy ignoramus." Between Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity, Trumpy Wumpy is feeling pressure to hold firm on his border wall aka vanity project despite the damage he is inflicting on more and more of our country every day. Perhaps Speaker Pelosi should now invite Ann Coulter to give the State of the Union message. #DonTheCon #TrumpShutdown #BorderWall #ManhoodThing #SpeakerPelosi #SOTU #AnnCoulter #RushLimbaugh #SeanHannity #ConservativeCommentators #ThreeBranchesOfGovernment #VladimirPutin #TrumpRussia #Trumpublicans #ScottStantis #MikeSmith #BartVanLeeuwen #StuartCarlson @bagleycartoons #DavidHorsey #SteveSack @jonostrove #DaveGranlund #ClayBennett #Cartoons #CoffeeAndCourtney #ComicRelief #Comics #CartoonCurator #SafeComicSpace #PoliticalCartoons #InstaDaily
