Political Cartoons

That guy doing the voice is from New Jersey and has a whole series of absolute dead-on Trump impressions. His Fireside Craps album is worth checking out.

Donald Trump walks into Chase Bank and says to the teller, “Good morning, can you cash this check for me”?

“It would be my pleasure sir. Can you please show me your ID?” She replies.

Trump says, “Sorry, I didn’t think I needed to bring it with me after all I am the president!”

The teller tells him, “Yes sir, I know who you are but with all the government regulations, I need that ID. But look, this is what we can do: One day Tiger Woods came to the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods, he pulled out his putting iron and made a beautiful shot across the bank lobby into a cup. With that shot we knew he was Tiger Woods and we cashed his check. What can you do to prove that it is you?”

Trump stood there thinking, and thinking and finally said, “Honestly, nothing comes to mind. I can’t think of a single thing I can do.”

The teller turns to him and says, “Great! Will that be large or small bills, Mr. President?”

Enticing as all that sounds, we're still boycotting the event.

Let's not forget he's not very bright and probably thought he was doing the right thing. If he thought of it himself, that is. But the idea of not causing panic arose - really rather old-fashioned, like one of those old movies - so he got up and did the best he could. Probably thought he did it rather well. He might also have been chastened by the thought of what happened when he suggested drinking bleach or whatever it was.

Now he's being called a liar and a causer of deaths. I think he'll be much happier when he stops being president.

As for the fires, leave us not forget, they're caused by sloppy forest management.
Because of The Wall, there was a shortage of migrant workers to comb the redwoods.
See, it is, too, all Trump's fault.

This image was recently used in a US presidential campaign ad called “Support Our Troops" - funded by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee.

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/14/trump-ad-asks-people-to-support-the-troops-but-it-uses-a-picture-of-russian-jets-414883

Unfortunately it shows Russian MiG-29 fighter jets overhead, and infantry troops carrying Russian AK-74 assault rifles, according to Ruslan Pukhov, director of the Centre for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies in Moscow.

The Trump Campaign and the RNC have declined to comment.

Am really going to enjoy hearing some Trump apparatchik attempting to explain that MIG photo.

It's not like there's some serious shortage of stock photos of US fighter jets.

Dexamethasone is that stuff Trump's been taking? Turns you nutty? Damn, now he's got an excuse!


(I actually want him to get well quickly. I want him to fight the election normally and lose, no excuses. That would be good enough).

??normally??
I cannot conceive of any permutation of the word 'normal' in conjunction with any property or attribute of Trump, in a meaningful sentence.

No one said it was normal by our standards :-)

What concerns me a little is that Trump's high jinks will affect Biden, who I don't think is a particularly bad twister. He's already yelled shut up and all that, goaded by the interruptions. It could get worse.
