The Republican Party has tied itself into knots worrying Trump will actually get the nomination and be their candidate for President. Yep, they’re scared! Many citizens are speaking out against the candidate, calling him boorish and uninformed, rude and insulting. Yep, he’s all those! Obviously it is what his rabid supporters like. He is one of them.
One group who must be shouting hosannas and hallelujahs for Trump are cartoonists and satirists, who have been having a wonderful time with caricatures of Trump. Who could ask for anything more, when for an editorial cartoonist the subject is a caricature of himself. Trump has a startling appearance: a cloud of sprayed, gelled and colored hair, prissy lips, orange spray tan, and of course, the notorious short fingers. Cartoonists must wake up each morning to Christmas. Trump is indeed a gift for them.
I have collected some cartoons just from the past couple of weeks. The news cycles being what they are these cartoons are probably outdated, and in a couple of years may seem quaint, when either Citizen Trump has returned to his reality TV program, or President Trump is sitting in the White House wondering why it is taking so long to build a fence between the U.S. and Mexico.
