Captains Deserting a Sinking Ship?

Donald Trump has managed to do something that no other Republican president in recent history has done. He has alienated the captains of industry. The presidential Strategic and Policy Forum decided to disband themselves. This group included CEOs from GM, JP Morgan Chase, Wal-Mart, Blackstone, PepsiCo, IBM, Ernst & Young, and GE (among others). The […]

I’ve looked at war from both sides now…

© Jack Ohman It only took one day for Donald Trump to go back to to blaming “both sides” for the violence in Charlottesville. He also did something worse in a way. About the white supremacist who drove his car into a crowd of protesters (killing one and putting other in the hospital), Trump said […]

Threat Assessment

© Tom Tomorrow TT admits that he initially finished this strip a week ago, but rewrote the final panel before publishing it because of Charlottesville. He didn’t want to wait until next week’s comic to make a point about neo-nazis because, well, we will probably have forgotten all about Charlottesville by then because something even […]

Single-Payer Health Insurance?

If “only Nixon could visit China”, maybe “only Trump can pass single-payer health insurance”? The “alt-right”, that racist segment of the right that fueled Trump’s victory, is moving more and more towards supporting single-payer health insurance (Medicare for all). And after the defeat of the repeal of Obamacare, they are getting more vocal about it. […]

What’s the Big Deal?

First Trump can’t make a deal with even Republican congressmen over repealing Obamacare. Now, Trump has now asked Congress for a billion dollars to build his wall. I guess he couldn’t get Mexico to pay for it. So much for his claimed deal-making abilities. But wait, it is worse than that. A billion dollars will […]

Immigration Fake News

Build a wall to keep out illegal immigrants from Mexico? Block refugees from entering the US? Ban even visitors from Muslim countries? And that’s just what the Trump administration says they want to do. It doesn’t include recent incidents like the son of legendary boxing champion Muhammad Ali being detained for hours when entering the […]

Approval!

I have not been comfortable in the role of making fun of everything Trump does. After all, one of the main things I’ve been complaining about is the Republican Party being the “party of no” — opposing pretty much everything Obama ever did or said. So it is with great relief that I have TWO […]

If I Shut My Eyes, Racism Doesn’t Exist?

A Trump campaign county chairwoman in Ohio has resigned after an interview with The Guardian in which she said a whole bunch of ignorant racist things: She called the Black Lives Matter movement “a stupid waste of time”. She blamed low voter turnout among blacks on “the way they’re raised”. Which is strange because in […]

Well, That’s One!

Friday night, Hillary Clinton asserted that about half of Trump’s supporters were not persuadable because Trump appeals to and amplifies their racist, xenophobic, sexist, Islamaphobic, and anti-Semitic viewpoints. The Trump campaign quickly condemned the comment, saying that Clinton should apologize. And Clinton did respond that she regretted saying “half”. But is it true that Trump […]

Outreached

© Jack Ohman The only people who will be convinced that Trump is not a racist are racists. But that may be the whole point. But the more important point is that Trump is making it ok to be racist in America, and this is extremely dangerous. As a must-read article in Rolling Stone puts […]

We Are Devo

The more Trump’s campaign evolves, the more it stays the same. © Kevin Siers It didn’t take long after reorganizing his campaign and even sorta kinda apologizing for the stupid and hateful things he has said, that Trump put his foot firmly in his mouth again. “With one arrogant boast, Donald Trump stumbled into a […]

More Republican Racism

In her speech at the Democratic National Convention last night, Michelle Obama beautifully talked about the progress that has been made in America: That is the story of this country, the story that has brought me to this stage tonight, the story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of […]

Gun Rights or Gun Whites?

© Matt Bors I’ve noticed that reasoning — “he had a gun” used as an excuse for the police shooting someone (even to the point of police planting a gun on a dead person). So if that is considered a good reason for the police to shoot someone, then how can the NRA keep telling […]

Slavery and the Civil War

Those of us who have lived in the south have seen in person that some people there are still fighting the civil war. They think that losing the actual war was a temporary setback that they will someday overcome. It has almost turned into a religious war, which is why the KKK had such religious […]
