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.

Election in the Courts

Trump and his minions are scrambling for a way to throw the election into the courts with claims of widespread fraud.

This is a revised version of a cartoon that I drew earlier when Justice Antonin Scalia died.

This wouldn’t be the first time for the Supreme Court to decide to give the presidential election of a Republican.  Back in 2000 the decision came as a blow to Al Gore.

The 5-4 court decision was pretty outrageous. This could be the second time a partisan court decides to stop a vote count (or re-count) and decide the winner, if Trump has his way.

At that time I was a regular, local, daily cartoonist for Gannett’s Honolulu Advertiser newspaper in Hawaii. On the day that the Supreme Court decided to make George W. Bush president, I drew this cartoon that my newspaper refused to print.

I defaced the justices who voted to make George W. Bush president. I was pretty angry that day.

Anything can happen. It already has.
