Five Reasons Donald Trump is a Joke

So Donald Trump is back in the news today. Apparently, The Donald has decided to endorse Mitt Romney for president in what might be the most awkwardly timed campaign event so far in this campaign. Think about it, after getting slammed over a flub for saying he doesn’t care about the poor, Romney is going to accept the endorsement of the world’s most notorious billionaire, whose catchphrase is, “You’re fired!”

At least cartoonists are ahead of the curve when it comes to Trump. But who’s the more foolish – the fool, or the fool who follows him? Here are five cartoons to help you decide…

Newt Gingrich Cartoons

Newt Gingrich finally made it official, announcing on both Facebook and Twitter that he’s going to run for President in 2012. Actually, his message to his followers was to tune into Fox News on Wednesday night, where he will “talk about my run for President of the United States” with host Sean Hannity (once a Fox shill, always a Fox shill).

What do the nation’s cartoonists think of his chances? Check out our Newt for President cartoon slideshow to find out.

Cartoonists React To Trump And Birth Certificate

Barack Obama was born in the United States. He is officially an American. The President released his long-form birth certificate today in reaction to increasing calls, let by loud-mouthed clown and GOP front-runner Donald Trump, that he was somehow born on foreign land and not eligible to be our commander-in-chief. Trump has latched onto this birther issue, devolving himself as a serious candidate. Based on his reaction to the news today, I might have to change my cartoon to have Trump asking, “Where are Obama’s school records?” I laughed at Nate Beeler’s cartoon for the Washington Examiner, showcasing the resiliency of the birther movement… While Pulitzer Prize-winner Mike Keefe of the Denver Post suggests the birther’s next line of attack… Green Bay Press-Gazette cartoonist Joe Heller shows that the birthers will always find a reason to doubt Obama’s authenticity… View even more cartoons in our new Obama’s Birth Certificate cartoon collection: Obama's Birth Certificate political cartoons


Donald Trump For President

Donald Trump for President? Might not be as far-fetched as you think. A recently released Pew Research poll shows that Trump has the highest profile among GOP hopefuls, and polls last week showed The Donald ahead of the rest of the GOP pack, including Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney.

What does the elevation of Donald Trump as a serious presidential candidate mean for jobs? Well, for starters, there should be some job job security for the nation’s cartoonists. Check out their take in our Donald Trump for President cartoon slideshow.

Here are my most recent cartoons …


This Week in Political Cartoons – 4/15/11

We’ve just posted our huge Week in Review cartoon slideshow, and what’s on everyone’s mind this week? Taxes, taxes, taxes!

Whether it’s the small business owner sweating bullets trying to finish his 1040 in time, or politicians on Capital Hill bickering and arguing about what out taxes can really afford, that dirty “t” word seems to be everywhere. Which infuriates bankrupt birther Donal Trump, who can’t abide the media overlooking him.

So pull yourself away from your calculator and check out our Week in Political Cartoons slideshow.
