President Trump isn’t doing well in the polls. As the virus gets worse, Trump has silenced his coronavirus task force and has been looking for distractions to move the news away from harping on his virus failures as the death count passed 100,000.
Trump’s latest distraction has been Twitter, which finally bowed to criticism and put an innocuous link to more information, next to a tweet where Trump lied about voter fraud. This is raw meat for Trump’s base that doesn’t like those rich, liberal, San Francisco social media companies. Trump’s Executive Order against Twitter is inconsequential, but his deception lured the media and lots of the cartoonists into taking Trump’s bait, drawing non-coronavirus cartoons about Trump vs Twitter as the death toll passed a milestone. Here’s my cartoon.

Here are a selection of five Trump vs Twitter cartoons drawn today and yesterday …
This cartoon is by Stephane Peray, who draws as “Stephff” in Thailand (internationally, cartoonists prefer to use only one name, like Cher, Madonna, Lassie or Flipper). Stephff is a long time contributor to our little syndicate; he used to have a thriving freelance business drawing cartoons for newspapers around the world. Now Stephff has given up editorial cartooning because all of his papers have dropped his cartoons as a cost cutting measure. I was actually surprised to see that Stephff uploaded this new one today, just for us. The newly accelerated decline of newspapers, and by extension, editorial cartoons, is a grim, worldwide phenomenon. Our reader supported site, Cagle.com, and our editorial cartoonists need your support to stave off the death of our art form.
