As a new era dawned during the Biden-Harris inauguration, Twitter got emotional and emptied stockpiles of Kleenex. Tears for the joyful, cheers for the ceremony, and jeers for the departing were common themes. The following is a snapshot in time of random and high profile Twitter expressions within a few hours of today’s inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.         #InaugurationDay #Inauguration2021 #Inauguration #NationalHealing #WhiteHouse #JoeBiden #KamalaHarris

It’s been a l-o-n-g four years and most of us made it — we’re finally here! Today’s the day we replace a terrible president with a true leader, a wholeheartedly decent man who will help America reclaim its soul. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will take their oaths of office at 12 noon today, formally ushering out the end of an error (not a typo). Donald Trump’s four-year reign of terror and [...]

One Last Laugh at a Terrible President Through the Eyes of a French Cartoonist

Posted By oliveamerica 2 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
Political cartoonist Stephane Peray offers hysterical chronicle of Donald Trump’s reign of terror and idiocy. While no one in their right mind (save scholars and historians) will want to revisit the Trump years, this recap of the outgoing president’s cringe-worthy and blessedly short era is so worth visiting. The talent and side-splitting humor of political cartoonist Stephane “Stephff” Peray perfectly captured the insanity of our unhinged U.S. president like no other. And the fact that [...]

A Tribute to Edel Rodriguez, Whose Trumprageous Art Defined an Era and Gave Us Hope

Posted By oliveamerica 2 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
In a fitting end to the Trump era, artist Edel Rodriguez closes out his nemesis’s presidency with one last magazine cover — a tattered and torn American flag at half staff, that perfectly sums up not just the failed MAGA coup, but the last four years. The cover image, which appears on today’s issue of The New Yorker, is titled “After the Insurrection.” Rodriguez, who as a teenager fled with his family to the U.S. [...]

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

Posted By oliveamerica 4 days 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

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 6 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 [...]
