Inside the White House Writers’ Room   Recently updated !

The second version of the White House’s unconstitutional immigration ban was struck down on Thursday. Public comments admitting the discriminatory intent of the executive order made by Rudy Giuliani and Trump adviser Stephen Miller helped strike it down.

Good job, guys!

Health Insurance Handouts   Recently updated !

Paul Ryan finally presented the “replace” part of “Repeal and replace Obamacare,” and it’s pretty much a gift to the wealthy and insurance companies.

Good thing I wasn’t shocked. My heart couldn’t afford a doctor’s visit.

Tweets from the #STONEZONE

Longtime Trump adviser, and even longer-time Nixon hanger-on Roger Stone went on a Twitter tear last Saturday. The next morning, he responded to folks laughing at him with this tweet:

There’s a lot of awful things about this guy, but the thing that really ticked me off while drawing this cartoon was his penchant for pinstriped suits. Those things are a bitch to draw!

Pundits Appraise the Trump Sideshow

Normal people’s response to Trump’s joint address was disgust and horror. Pundits however, couldn’t stop raving about it. They were immediately mocked, but their jobs are never in jeopardy and they’ll still get paid handsomely to spew bad takes.

Featured here in order are: Van Jones, Katy Tur, Philip Rucker, Benny “Wikipedia Plagiarist” Johnson, and Chris “The Fix” Cillizza. If you don’t know who they are, you have a much healthier media diet than me.

Unless you’re trapped in a hotel with no channels, there’s no reason to watch or read these morons’ opinions. Actual reporting, and maybe some supplemental analysis here and there is all you need to be an informed citizen.

Except for editorial cartoons. Keep reading those.

Joint Address Prep with Trump and Bannon

This cartoon is exclusive to patrons who pledge $5 or more or month. Subscribers at that level also get early access to my weekly comics, as well as a signed and personalized holiday card at the end of the year. Sign up here.

Tonight’s joint address to Congress isn’t technically a State of the Union address. Whatever you want to call it, it’s going to be a shitshow. I hope you don’t have to watch.

Patrons who give $10 or more a month get all that, plus a signed high quality print of any cartoon they want along with the holiday card.


Town Hall Exit Plans

Republicans are having a difficult time at town halls in their home districts. Constituents are rightfully angry at them for going along with whatever President Trump wants to do, and letting them hear what they think.

Louie Gohmert not only cancelled his town halls , but cited Gabby Giffords’ shooting as his reason. Not exactly the bravest stance from someone who thinks guns should be everywhere except near him.

The birthday cake gag may seem like a non sequitur, but Tom Cotton really likes birthday cake. Here’s the proof.

The Cartoon Commandments

Read the full headline comic at The Nib.

If you’re not reading The Nib or subscribing to their newsletter, you’re missing out on headline comics like these, among other longform comics.

Here’s the article this headline is pulled from. The offending cartoon isn’t included in the piece, but it’s described like this:

Girgir had published in its latest edition a cartoon showing the bearded Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt, with his companions complaining and using vulgar curse words.

There’s been a huge crackdown on journalists and cartoonists as Erdogan consolidates power in Turkey. The publication shut itself down to avoid a similar fate to what happened to cartoonist Musa Kart and his colleagues.


Hide and Seek with ICE

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been at the center of some pretty awful news this week.

A woman in Texas who was seeking a protective order against her abusive partner was arrested at the courthouse  after said abusive partner tipped ICE off to her immigrations status.

In Virginia, ICE agents ambushed men leaving a church’s hypothermia shelter. The list goes on and on.

The cruelty of this regime’s raids and detentions are heart wrenching, but let’s not pretend previous administrations were anything but callous either.
