Lazy Weekend~time for toons

Posted on: July 21, 2019

Good weekend Widdershins

With lots of things happening all over, seemingly to the point of making you want to go screaming into the day (or night), I thought we might once again see how the political cartoonists are seeing things.

Naturally Trump rules the cartoons just as he seems to do with the news cycle, but there were other things that caught the eyes of our cartoonist friends, like the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. And that somehow got combined with tRump; go figure.  Below is a sample of the ones that caught my eyes.

The one about Dump the Slug not having a racist bone

@1: there were several toon on that theme and I just picked what I thought was the best one. Slimy, you bet!

Brilliant toons, Fredster! Are you feeling better?

@3: Yeah, I had to go for an imaging thing after that first procedure. I’m not fond of those tight spaces.

Love the toons, Fredster!! My favorite was also Slug Drumpf. 😂 Although I did like the one where Obama was running away from Biden!

A friend is in town and we went with him to see Cabaret last night. It was just chilling to see the parallels with what the Rethugs are doing and what the Nazis did.

Hell, I just wanted the second tweet and not the first. The “new and improved” twitter stinks.

Eh, still didn’t work.

This is adorable:

All, no post tonight. Had an exhausting but fun weekend. The elephant is so cute!

Great tunes Fredster, and I loved the baby elephant playing in the big bucket.

What the eff anyway. Mueller starts the testimony at 8:30 for the east coasters…and the west coast is still asleep at 5:30 AM.

This effin’ sucks big time.

@12, that stinks! It’s Wednesday, right?

@13: See the text widget I put up at the top. Even found out how to move it up so easier to see.

Yes Annie, this stinks. I guess they think the blue, west coast states are in the bag, so delaying the time by at least two hours was too difficult for them. So we only get to see clips that the media picks out.

@12, 13, 15, the West Coast doesn’t matter to the East Coast pundits. I’m surprised even Kamala is getting as much attention as she does.

And Fredster, great ‘toons! That GOP elephant ignoring live children and looking for uterine contents to “save.”

@12,13,15, 16: Let me copy this in here from that widget:

12 p.m. – House Intelligence Committee hearing

Remember, there are two separate and distinct hearings.

Thanks Fredster!

This is so sad:

Yes Fredster the second hearing starts at noon, or 9 AM on the best coast. I am going to try to get up at 5:30 AM to watch Mueller’s opening statement.

I hope something good comes out of the two hearings, that wakes up America and they are appalled enough for Dems to start ‘I’ investigations.

I am ready for Impeachment proceeding after Mueller is done, one way or the other. This A-hole is not above the law.

@21: I’m just guessing, but I bet there is going to be a certain amount of repetition with the two hearings. Of course that first one, Judiciary, will be the one to watch. I want to see how crazy bat-shit crazy Jim Jordan gets in the hearing.

I’ll put up a post tomorrow for us to talk about #MuellerTime.

Something just occurred to me. I have been increasingly jaded and pessimistic about tomorrow, particularly in light of Mueller soliciting his parameters from DOJ. However, what if Mueller wanted to throw the DOJ and the administration off by sounding so deferential and constrained? To avoid them doing something to prevent his testimony altogether? And once he is on the stand, he spills the beans? Wouldn’t that be wonderful?

@24, lililam, that would be wonderful. Doesn’t look like he has, though there’s plenty in his testimony which indicates they would have charged the president* if it wasn’t for that DOJ opinion that a sitting president can’t be indicted.
