Trump and the Courts

Update 12/11/20 5:30pm: The Supreme Court just dismissed the Texas lawsuit. Good for them.

President Trump has been losing his lawsuits to overturn the election results. One last try is a desperate suit by the embattled Texas Attorney General, joined by Republican states and, as I’m posting this, 126 Republican congressmen. The Supreme Court is expected to decline to hear this latest atrocious lawsuit very soon, and that is the reason for my cartoon today – I’m anticipating a reasonable response from the Supreme Court.

I was flipping through my oldies and I found this SCOTUS gavel cartoon I drew back in 2000, showing Al Gore taking it on the head when the Supreme Court intervened to decide the election for George W. Bush. It seems like an appropriate image for today, presuming the court doesn’t make electoral trouble again.

Today I put Trump into that twenty year old drawing.  Here’s the sketch.

 

I like drawing losers getting bashed with the gavel – sometimes the losers are sympathetic. Here is the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals striking down gay marriage back in 2009.

Here are the four, gavel waving conservative justices of the Supreme Court, back in 2013, when I thought they were about to ban gay marriage again – they surprised me and did the right thing that time.

We can’t ever be sure that the courts will do the right thing, but most of the time they do. Gotta hope for the best.

Trump Doggie!

Here’s my new cartoon, “What the Doggie Hears”.

I’ve actually drawn quite a few Trump Doggies. I remember when Trump hired his The Apprentice contestant, Omarosa, in the White House, then he called her a “dog” and she bit back, writing a tell-all book.

 

Here is Trump as Putin’s dutiful doggie, when Trump was congratulating Putin on his re-election.

 

Here’s a Christmas cartoon from 2016 with Trump and former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as Putin presents.

Here are some of my favorite Trump Doggies from the CagleCartoonists. This one is from Bill Day.

 

Here’s a Trump doggie oldie with ex-Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, by Ed Wexler.

 

Here is a great one from Taylor Jones.

 

This one with Trump and France’s President Macron is by Dutch cartoonist Joep Bertrams.

Spineless!

Here’s today’s cartoon about the spineless Republicans who are backing Trump’s baseless claims of voter fraud and his refusal to recognize that Joe Biden won the election.

And here’s my cartoon as it appeared in The Washington Post this morning, 11/18/20.

“Spineless” cartoons are a favorite cliché for editorial cartoonists. Here’s a spineless cartoon that I drew about President Obama’s Middle East policy many years ago.

Here’s a 25 year old spineless oldie from my TRUE! cartoons, a syndicated newspaper feature that I drew back in 1995.

I took a quick look at the vast PoliticalCartoons.com archives for  my favorite spineless cartoons by the CagleCartoonists.

This 13 year old spineless oldie is from Monte Wolverton.

 

This three year old spineless oldie comes from Adam Zyglis.

 

This Dave Whamond spineless Mitch McConnell cartoon is a recent classic.

Trump’s Legal Arguments

President Trump doesn’t accept that he lost the election and he’s been frantically filing a slew of suits, with more on the way, claiming fraud in the election without proof. The courts seem unimpressed with these lawsuits so far and time is running out for Trump. Here’s my cartoon.

And for some reason, people want to see my rough sketches, so here you go.
