Oh MyPillow Guy, How Do You Sleep at Night After Pushing Martial Law?

Posted By oliveamerica 12 hours ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
Probably on an adjustable interlocking-foam-filled premium pillow is my guess, but also maybe fitfully, because the MAGA coup failed and the only recourse left is martial law. Obviously. In fact so clear is this strategy to save MAGAworld from Joe Biden and the Libs, that MyPillow Guy Mike Lindell briefed Donald Trump about this very thing yesterday at the White House. We have Washington Post staff photographer Jabin Botsford and his telephoto lens to thank for [...]

This Week in Political Cartoons – Capitol Riot Edition 1/10/21

Posted By oliveamerica 1 day 4 hours ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
It should come as no surprise that Wednesday's Capitol Riot is the most depicted event in political cartoons from this monumental week.  Due to the sheer number of cartoons and their quality, I have culled very few from my subscription service and instead grouped them into more easily digestible sections.

Why Did Fox Just Reveal Biden’s Location for Inaugural Eve?

Posted By oliveamerica 2 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
Do we need to ask why Fox News is the only media outlet to manufacture a fake news story so it can reveal Joe Biden’s whereabouts the night before the inauguration? This is not a rhetorical question. In a non-bylined pretend story posted over night, Fox’s website leads a “Live Update” section with a headline announcing where President Elect Biden and his wife will be staying the night before his inauguration. A total of three [...]

Inside Job – MAGA Leader Says GOP Reps Biggs, Brooks and Gosar Helped Plan Insurrection

Posted By oliveamerica 3 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
As Republicans grapple with purging their own deplorables, three new GOPers are identified as helping to plan the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. All three are House Congressional Republicans — two from Arizona: Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar, and Mo Brooks from Alabama. The Washington Post reports today that all three lawmakers have been named as complicit in last week’s deadly riot in a now-deleted Twitter video (that still lives here) made by a [...]

Melania’s Feelings Are Hurt, Twitter Says I Really Don’t Care Do U?

Posted By oliveamerica 4 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
After five days of silence Melania Trump issued a whiney, plagiarized statement about the January 6 Capitol riot, ignoring her husband’s role as ring leader and saying people are being mean to her. Twitter yawned and said, I really don’t care do U? Yesterday’s tone-deaf statement, heavily plagiarized from one of her earlier speeches, completely misjudges the mood of the country. Shocker. The not-for-much-longer First Lady condemned last week’s violence without addressing its cause (her [...]

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
Remember way back when we learned of Trump's mobster phone call to pressure Georgia state officials to overturn that state's election results? That was only last weekend! And then on Tuesday, before all hell broke loose at the Capitol, the Democrats won the Georgia Senate runoffs! This section of weekly political cartoons is dedicated to all the newsworthy events before Wednesday's Capitol Riot. [...]

All the Best Political Cartoons from a Horrendous and Monumental Week

Posted By oliveamerica 6 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
I don’t normally submit a post with my round-ups of the week’s best political cartoons, but this is an exceptional week — and not in a good way aside from Democrats capturing two Georgia Senate seats. Due to the sheer number of monumental events we witnessed as a nation this week, political cartoonists worked overtime producing an unprecedented number of illustrations serving as commentary on the week. I culled very few from my subscription service [...]
