Loyalty to Trump Gives Me a Headache

Here’s my new one, about loyalty to Trump headaches.

This one is based on an oldie from about 8 years ago, when Republicans were also bashing their heads for no good reason.  Things don’t change much.

Top Ten Cartoons of January, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last month, January, 2021.  We usually do the Top Ten of the Week, but this week our stats were down for a couple of days as were were working on new programming. The weekly Top Ten will be back next Saturday.

January was a wild month with the pandemic, the presidential inauguration and the Capitol insurrection. New Years, Martin Luther King and GameStop also made the list.

This was an impressive month for Steve Sack, who had a strong #1 and and also scored in 6th place.  Dave Granlund also kicked cartoon butt with three cartoons on the list (#2, #5 and #9). Dave Whamond (#7 and #10) and Jeff Koterba (#3 and #4) each had two cartoons on the list. Kudos to Dave Fitzsimmons who had the #8 cartoon.

The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints. Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com


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.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – January 23, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (January 16th through January 23th 2021).

We have a tie for 10th place so the Top Ten is the Top Eleven this week. This was inauguration week and the presidential transition dominated the news and the cartoons.

Dave Granlund‘s #1 cartoon got far more reprints than #2 and the rest of the pack. Congratulations, Dave! Dave Whamond, Jeff Koterba and Bill Day also had a fantastic week, each with two cartoons in the Top Eleven.

Kudos to the other CagleCartoonists who made the Top Eleven list this week: Steve Sack, Bruce Plante, Randy Enos and David Fitzsimmons.

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.

More Doggie Presidents

This is my new one about all the foreign policy landmines that President Trump is laying for the Biden administration.

I drew a Trump Doggie cartoon yesterday and I was thinking about doggie presidents. Today’s cartoon is based on one I drew about President George W. Bush about 14 years ago.

I’ve drawn lots of presidential doggies. Here’s an oldies with doggie Obama.

 

When Hillary Clinton was running for president against Obama, she had her husband Bill as her attack dog.

 

Early in the George W. Bush administration, doggie Jimmy Carter opposed and undermined Bush’s Cuba policy, visiting Castro in Cuba.

I draw foreign doggie presidents too. Here’s Cuba’s doggie Fidel Castro from about 14 years ago.

 

Here’s an oldie with Israel’s doggie Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu peeing on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas while being “condemned” by President Obama.

I can’t get enough of doggie presidents, but that’s not true of newspaper editors. A sure way to make sure your cartoon won’t get reprinted in newspapers very much is to draw a doggie president –also, drawing urine is something newspaper editors don’t like.

Drawing doggie Presidents and urine isn’t a smart business decision for editorial cartoonists; we do it for love.

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.

Thanksgiving Transition

Here’s my new “Do it Yourself” Thanksgiving Transition Cartoon. It requires a printer, a pair of scissors and some glue.

Yes, I know that scissors and glue are old school. I’m old too.  Here are some more of my favorite Thanksgiving Transition cartoons from the CagleCartoonists.

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.

Don Quixote Trump

President Trump is chasing his “impossible dream” of finding widespread election fraud that could turn the election in his favor. To me, that sounds like time for another Don Quixote cartoon – a favorite trope of the international cartoonists.

I worried a little about whether VP Mike Pence would be recognizable as Sancho Panza, but then I decided that this is probably my best caricature of Pence – it must be how Picasso would have drawn Pence.

I took a look in the vast CagleCartoons archives to find a few more quixotic cartoons, and these are my favorites.

The first one is by our Chinese cartoonist, Luojie, who draws the Chinese government line for The China Daily newspaper. Luojie thinks the USA and EU are chasing windmills with their Chinese trade sanctions.

Our Swedish CagleCartoonist Riber Hanssen has a more complex, but similar point of view with Don Quixote, a fire hose and an impossible dream of extinguishing the Chinese dragon.

Our CagleCartoonist from Oaxaca, Mexico, Dario Castillejos, has Don and Sancho doing a selfie.

Angel Boligan from Mexico City draws Quixote and the media.

Michael Kountouris from Greece sees gender equity as an impossible dream.

Finally, here’s the famous, original Pablo Picasso drawing that inspired my parody cartoon.

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.

See our America Elects Biden cartoon on Cagle.com here.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – November 7, 2020

This was a crazy election week! Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (October 31st through November 7th 2020). Newspaper editors found lots of cartoons they liked this week and the usage curve was flattened. Many cartoons were bunched together in the stats, with each getting lots of reprints – very different from recent weeks when editors all reprinted the same, few cartoons. Editors found a lot to like this week.

We have a crazy, improbable, four way tie for first place, with each first place cartoon getting about half as many reprints as last week’s #1 cartoon. Every Top Ten cartoon this week was about the election but, as usual, none of the most reprinted cartoons included drawings of Trump or Biden.  This is the first week for many months where no coronavirus cartoons made the Top Ten.

Congrats to Jeff Koterba who has two cartoons on the list, including one cartoon tied for #1. Two of my own cartoons tied for #1. Kudos to Rick McKee who also shares the four-way tie for #1 this week.

I was pleased to see our new CagleCartoonist, Pat Byrnes, made the Top Ten list this week. Congratulations to the other cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this week: RJ Matson, Dave Granlund, John Darkow and Pat Bagley.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com
