Trump’s Project 2025   Recently updated !

Read the comic on Patreon.

I’ve been regularly drawing this asshole for almost a decade now. Every panel was torture to work on, as they were grim reminders of what I’ll be drawing for another decade if Democrats manage to flub another election against this easily-beatable bozo.

I honestly don’t know if the odds would improve if Biden steps down or not. It’s too late. This was a discussion to be had before he was President-elect. The DNC is almost upon us and there’s all sorts of legal hurdles to changing the ticket after that, especially now that “the law” is whatever six Republican operatives say it is.

The prospect of a second Trump term is frightening. In a normal world, the incumbent President would’ve had him arrested right after the inauguration. That didn’t happen, and now all of our summers are ruined by a sense of election dread.

Summer Beach Reads

Read the comic on Patreon.

It was a long weekend after a month’s worth of news happened on Monday and Tuesday. I went to the beach to look at some cool shells and eat seafood, but I shall return, barely refreshed to draw comics about whatever new horrors await us on the other side of the holiday weekend.

Have A Federalist Society Fourth!

Read the comic on Patreon.

The Supreme Court has a few more awful decisions to hand out before the holiday, but the one’s they’ve issued so far have ranged from awful to slightly less awful. You know the year’s going great when I’ve drawn Leonard Leo and the Federalist Society more than anybody in Congress. Remember that branch of government? I hope they’re having fun.

I watched the debate while finishing this. It was as bad as I was expecting, but that’s more of an illustration of how low my expectations were. Still over four months until the election, so I’m going to try to refrain from doing too many cartoons about it and spoil everyone’s summer.

Trump’s V.P. Shortlist

Read the comic on Patreon.

General election nonsense is beginning, and there’s allegedly a debate happening next week. Regular folks are doing summery things like vacations and sweating their butts off while drawing this comic in third floor apartments in Boston, Massachusetts. The media however, needs a horserace and “Veepstakes” gives them something to talk about besides “Trump still sucks.” and Biden still slightly older than Trump.”

It doesn’t matter who Trump’s Vice President is more than the legion of flunkies who’ll be put in charge of their terrifying agenda. John Oliver had a good summary of it, that’s better than me typing all about it.

2024’s Climate Records

Read the comic on Patreon.

We’re about to have a heat wave here in the Northeast, which will be minor compared to the heat waves happening elsewhere around the globe so far this summer. Ocean temps are already shattering records held since … last year, and hurricane season is only officially two weeks old.

Locally, ocean temps are still too chilly for people who didn’t grow up in New England (AKA my spouse), but the swimming season here is already a month longer than when I was a kid forty years ago.

Private Equity Acquires Your Family

Read the comic on Patreon.

Private equity, vulture capital, enshittification, whatever you want to call it, has been hollowing out vast swathes of the country, from brands like Red Lobster and Boeing, to entire hospital groups.

Leveraged buyouts are somehow a legal version of what the mob does in pretty much every Scorsese movie about them: Acquire something, strip it for parts, then throw a decadent party montage set to the Rolling Stones. They should be illegal, but along with everything else, the good ol’ days of the regulatory state are long behind us.

Summer Movie Duds

Read the comic on Patreon.

Apparently this year’s Memorial Day weekend movies were busts compared to last year’s. I’ll definitely check out Furiosa and the latest Apes as soon as they reach my living room cinema, which will probably be before this summer’s even close to being over.

The studios are trying to blame the strikes, but the problems were already there before the picket lines halted production. There are always these boom and bust cycles with movies, but studios used to weather them with diversified releases. Now it’s going on a quarter century of the same genre stuff or some nostalgia revival.

Now that the unofficial start of summer has passed, I had to get a Jaws reference in, and Richard Dreyfuss being a dick at a screening was a good excuse. I know the narrative reasons why Quint had to be eaten, but it was fun drawing Bruce chewing the shit out of Hooper instead.

Samuel Alito’s Freak Flags

Read the comic on Patreon.

Apologies for two SCOTUS cartoons this month, but these six goons effectively run the country, with the two other branches of government wielding about as much power as an elementary school’s model U.N. The court’s begun issuing this year’s decrees, with today’s stripping what little was left on the Voting Rights Act’s corpse after Shelby v. Holder.

If you haven’t heard about the Alitos’ coup-coup flags, they put up decorations that show aesthetically what Alito’s opinions have been saying explicitly for decades: He’s a Christofascist, just like the other five members of the court’s majority.

Until a meaningful solution to the right-wing court’s rule is offered by the Democrats, they’ll continue to chip away at every right gained since Reconstruction and maybe even further back until elections are rendered moot. Waiting for actuarial tables and hilarious accidents is not a policy solution; it’s already admitting defeat.
