The Most Popular Cartoons of the Week

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (August 1st through August 8th, 2020). For the first time since March, a drawing of Trump has made the Top Ten in John Darkow’s #8 cartoon showing Trump as a dog biting a postman. Trump’s attacks on the Post Office are a very popular topic right now (but usually without showing Trump). Seven of the Top Ten reference the pandemic, two are about the Post Office, and one is about Joe Biden. Come take a look!

N.R.A. CROOKS

This week we heard the news that the Attorney General in New York is filing a suit to have the National Rifle Association (NRA) dissolved because of massive self-dealing by the people who ran the non-profit, who lived crazy, lavish lifestyles on the money they stole from the organization. Here’s my cartoon …

The Most Popular Cartoons of the Week

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (July 25 through August 1, 2020). As usual, no drawings of President Trump are among the most reprinted cartoons –and we had lots of cartoonists draw Trump this week.

Christopher Weyant takes the the #1 spot, running away with the week by a wide margin!

No one has two cartoons in the Top Ten list this week, so kudos to our other nine cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this week:  Jeff Koterba, Rick McKee, John Cole, RJ Matson, Steve Sack, Dave Granlund, John Darkow, Nate Beeler and Bruce Plante. Come take a look!

Statistics: The Cartoons that Newspaper Editors Like … and Don’t Like

Newspaper editorial cartoonists love to draw president Trump! We make Trump fat. We give Trump a crazy, long, red tie, a bright, orange face and a grand swoop of yellow hair. Trump appears in editorial cartoons more than any other president, or anything else, has ever appeared in cartoons before. Just as Trump dominates the news on TV every night, he dominates political cartoons. Our problem is that newspaper editors don’t like to publishing drawings of Trump. READ MY WHOLE COLUMN …

COVID Follows Kids Home From School

President Trump threatens to take money away from schools that don’t have all of their students attending in physical classes. Trump argues that kids get coronavirus at a much lower rate, but the science shows that kids over nine years old transmit the disease to others at the same rate as adults –so kids will be bringing COVID home to Mom, Dad and Grandma. Here’s my new cartoon …

The Most Popular Cartoons of the Week

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (July 11 through July 18, 2020). As usual, no drawings of President Trump are among the most reprinted cartoons.  This week has the usual steep curve between the most popular cartoons and all the rest. Only five cartoons were related to the pandemic this week, four cartoons featured sports in some way, and there were two Back to School cartoons.

Gary McCoy takes the top spot by a wide margin, with an unusual Joe Biden bashing cartoon that doesn’t show Biden or Trump –something that seems to be a requirement among editors.  Dave Whamond dominated again this week with three cartoons in the Top Ten, all part of a crazy four-way tie for second place. Pat Bagley impresses with two cartoons on the list this week.

Congratulations to the other cartoonists who made the Top Ten this week, John Cole, Jeff Koterba, Bill Day and Bruce Plante. Come take a look!

Dr. Fauci – Part 3

Here’s my new cartoon about Trump and Dr. Fauci. This has been an interesting couple of weeks as White House bigwigs have been anonymously dishing dirt on Dr. Fauci, followed by Trump’s advisor Peter Navarro writing an Op-Ed in USA Today bashing Fauci by making false claims that USA Today later had to walk back. Fauci’s realism conflicts with Trump’s push to minimize the perception of the coronavirus threat.
