Presidents and Santa

Every year the president sits on Santa’s lap in cartoons from scores of editorial cartoonists. Here’s my Trump in Santa’s lap cartoon for 2018 …

 

I enjoy these!  Here are a few of my presidential, Santa’s lap oldies; the first one is from 2012 with Santa Obama and Republicans on his lap.

 

Here’s another Obama-Santa from simpler times. Looking at this I think I should draw the same concept again, with Trump-Santa, which would be funnier.

 

The next one is from 2007, with President Bush. I think George W. Bush was a worse president than Trump, but he didn’t seem to suffer from the torrent of criticism that Trump does, even as he started a big war, killing hundreds of thousands and leaving a mess that haunts us today.

This Bush-Santa cartoon was from the previous Christmas in 2006.

Just looking back on these makes me want to draw more Santas.
