Donald Trump


More Rejected Courtroom Sketches

Trump’s criminal trial has begun with jury selection, and first reports were kind of funny, as far as Trump news goes. Falling asleep, having to hear the mean things potential jurors said about him on social media, and an aide bringing printouts of good news to improve his mood, etc.

Then the media started reporting every identifying detail of the potential jurors, who were quickly identified by Trump’s goon troops. This led to at least one quitting for safety concerns. And just a couple hours later, Trump was posting stuff on social media about the jurors, violating a gag order.

Previous contempt of court charges against him had led to nothing but minor fines, so he’ll keep doing it. Until one of the judges in all these trials wants to be the one to put a former/candidate-for president in jail, these farces will continue all year long!

Pleas from the President

It’ll soon be six months since Israel’s revenge campaign in Gaza began with the US government funding and cheering it on the entire time. Now that the horrors and atrocities are starting to be reflected in the polls, the calls of “Trump is worse!” to deflect criticism of Biden are getting louder.

Of course, Trump is worse than Biden. But genocide is happening now. Waiting for an election to be over before demanding an end to a slaughter is a sign of a craven politics brain.

Trump Shopping Network

Courts say Trump has to pay a lot of money in judgements from his assorted fraud and defamation trials. Now his PACs are broke from paying for all his legal fees. Then last week he debuted a shitty $400 sneaker at a sneaker convention in Philadelphia.  Seems desperate! But …

He’s currently trying to delay and appeal, and even if that fails, I’m not convinced he’ll ever pay up. I’ll be happy to see him face consequences for delinquency, but the courts and politicians have proved their unwillingness to put this shithead in a cell.

America’s Assignment Editor

The NYTimes was never the bastion of the liberal media people claim it is, but it’s definitely taken a hard right turn since nepo baby AG Sulzberger took over the family business. He oversaw James Bennett becoming opinion editor, who let Bari Weiss and Tom Cotton run insane 4chan shit for a couple years before the normal employees put up enough of a stink to run him out. (With a few notable exceptions, the opinion section still sucks shit though.)

The rightward tilt of the “straight” news side were always there, with the Iraq War propaganda being the most blatant in my lifetime. But Trump has sent them over the deep end; either to appear neutral with both-sides bullshit, or actively targeting a minority to signal their willingness to work with fascists.

None of this will save them if they succeed in getting the second Trump term they want so bad. He hates their fancy high society guts and will send them to the camps with the rest of us.

Rejected Courtroom Sketches

Trump’s been pulling a bunch of shenanigans in court that would have any other defendant in jail for contempt of court months ago. No judge wants to be the one to do the very obvious thing and apply consequences to this demented fascist for the first time in his life, because that’ll set a dangerous precedent that all ex-presidents are subject to laws.

With most of Trump’s trials not allowing video, or even cameras, courtroom sketch artists are having a moment. It’s a job that I thought I could do. They’re presumably employed by the court, with wages and benefits, and they don’t even have to do speech bubbles! Stenographers do that. How hard could it be?

Georgia Jail Kids

Despite all the indictments, the ones in Georgia are providing the only mugshots. Trump’s hasn’t been released as I’m posting this, so this artist’s interpretation will have to do. A mugshot isn’t a conviction, and hardly a consequence at all, but we have to take our schadenfreude where we can these days.

Garbage Pail Kids came out when I was five and I was enthralled. I’d get them instead of candy for at least a couple years. The handful that survived are framed and hanging in my living room.

I usually save the horror parodies for Halloween, but this summer’s news has been inviting them ahead of schedule. This usually is the time of year studios put out at least a few of their new spooky stuff in theaters so they can double-dip digital rentals in October.

McConnell froze up in the middle of a press conference a couple weeks ago, and I’ve learned not to get my hopes up. I’m going to be adding more gruesome ailments to my depiction of him and the fucker’s gonna outlive me; like some kind of mashup between the picture of Dorian Gray and the dude on the game Operation.

Hoard-A-Lago

Read the comic on Patreon.

The most recent indictment for Trump seems pretty thorough and damning with lots of incriminating photos of stolen documents scattered around Mar-A-Lago. I did a cartoon about this when the stolen documents, subpoenas and warrants first came out last year.

I’m still skeptical any consequences will befall this horribly lucky bastard. The judge presiding over this case is Trump flunkie Aileen Cannon, who now has a chance to beat Aileen Wournos as Florida’s Worst Aileen.
