Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – May 29, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the week ending May 29th, 2021.

Congratulations to Bill Day for drawing the #1 most reprinted cartoon of the week!  And a hearty congrats to Dick Wright in second place. And Kudos to the other cartoonists in the Top Ten: Pat Bagley, Jeff Koterba, Ed Wexler, Bruce Plante, John Darkow, Dave Granlund, Dave Whamond and RJ Matson.

Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com. These are the cartoons that editors picked last week.


Our reader supported site, Cagle.com, still needs you!  Journalism is threatened with the pandemic that has shuttered newspaper advertisers. Some pundits predict that a large percentage of newspapers won’t survive the pandemic economic slump, and as newspapers sink, editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers sink too, and along with them, our Cagle.com site.

Heavy Spending

Here’s my new cartoon on the heavy spending in President Biden’s Infrastructure Bill.  I’m seeing inflation everywhere (except in official reports of the inflation rate). A whole lot of borrowed money has been pumped into the economy by Trump, and now Biden.

I haven’t drawn many conservative cartoons over the Trump years, but looking back on Obama’s eight years I was drawing a lot of cartoons that criticized Obama. Cartoonists like to criticize and with Democrats controlling Congress and the presidency, more of our CagleCartoonists, who aren’t know of drawing conservative cartoons, are drawing conservative cartoons.  Here are a few examples …

Trump has COVID

Late last night we got the news that President Trump and First Lady Melania have tested positive for Coronavirus. Social media exploded with sarcasm and righteous indignation because of the president’s history of refusing to wear a mask, his super spreader, maskless rallies and his many statements diminishing the importance of the pandemic. The cartoons started coming in this morning – here is mine.

 

Here’s another one inspired by the laughter on social media, from our Dutch cartoonist, Jos Collignon.

This one is from David Fitzsimmons.

 

Here’s one from Bob Englehart.

 

And Dave Granlund.

 

This one is from Jeff Koterba.

 

Our conservative, Trump supporting cartoonist, Gary McCoy, almost never draws president Trump; this morning he made an exception.

Rush Limbaugh is a Big, Fat Idiot

Popular talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh is no stranger to controversy, and often says dumb things just to get people riled up. But on a recent show, Limbaugh exceeded his own standards and called out first lady Michelle Obama on her body and eating habits.

“I’m trying to say that our first lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you,” Limbaugh said Monday.

I guess Rush doesn’t have a mirror, or else he might have steered clear of commenting on the perceived healthiness of someone else. Luckily for us, we have political cartoonists to take his dopey comments and re-direct the fun his way.

My favorite so far might be this cartoon by Pat Bagley depicting The Maha Rushie as Jabba the Hutt, and his dittohead followers as a poor princess trapped by the powerful toad-eater.

Brilliant caricaturist Taylor Jones got in on the act as well, depicting a scene no one on this Earth ever wanted to witness: Rush in a bikini.

Not surprisingly, Sarah Palin has gotten in on the nutrition-bashing act as well. Here Nate Beeler puts her silly and hyper-partisan comments into the proper perspective.
