Trump Taxes

The news about Trump’s tax returns came out late on Sunday –too late for editorial cartoonist who come back to work on Monday morning.  I drew the first one on Sunday evening.

In the New York Times story is was interesting to read about how Trump lost a fantastic amount of money over a long period of years; his $70,000 deduction for hair styling is impressive; Trump’s big deductions for Ivanka’s “consulting” in addition to her salary is funky. It looks like there’s a bunch of fraud going on.

The next Trump Tax cartoon arrived this morning from Dutch CagleCartoonist, Tom Janssen.


This one is by Dave Whamond.

I’m sure we’ll get more later today. I’ll post the first ones here.

One reply on “Trump Taxes”

I wrote an editorial and should have copied and pasted a copy of it but here is the gist of the thing:

In safety matters we always try the engineering solution first. For the debates why not have the tv camera and live mike occur exclusively for the moderator when it is his turn to define the question, then exclusive picture and mike for the timed minutes for each contender. Subsequently if we still insist on watching some brawling we can give each candidate the chance to show how politely we can depend on them to behave in negotiations with other sovereign nations or equal branches of government.
