Iran Pull-Out

My new cartoon is unusual for me because I would call it “pro-Trump.” I’m not bothered by this pulling the USA out of the Iran deal, as most of the world seems to be. The pallets of cash that were secretly delivered to Iran as part of the deal were enough to turn me against it, even if Iran wasn’t such an active bad actor on the world stage. My cartoon shows Iran’s Supreme Leader. I suppose readers won’t recognize the Supreme Leader, but what the heck, he looks pretty archetypal, so I didn’t give him a label.


I thought the rug should be a Persian carpet – it didn’t have to be, but it seems appropriate. I Googled Persian carpets and found that there are a number of artists who do paintings of Persian carpets. That sounds like fun; I enjoyed drawing the Persian carpet.

That’s a great cartoon. I’m not sure whether you like trump or not, but at least somebody give credit where credit was due. If Trump were not elected we would have continued on the downhill grade that Obama had us on

The Persian carpet is absolutely perfect, because Persia is Iran! (The name “Persia” is actually from the ancient Greek language. Iran is the proper name in the Persian/Iranian language.)

You drew the carpet beautifully. The question is whether Trump pulled the carpet out from under the other five signatory countries, too.
