I'm baaaaaaaaaack...I know, I know, I know. It's been way too long, and with so much great material out there for political cartoons...what the heck was I thinking? Well, what I'm thinking is that I'm now in need of breaking out of my sense of denial. Die Trumper is now our new president, and the rich and powerful are all now appealing to us to give him a chance to prove that he can be a real uniter, someone who will heal the wounds he inflicted during his hate-filled presidential campaign. That might be a bit difficult given his natural proclivities to, among other things, prey on women, verbally body slam anyone with a dissenting opinion, and reinforce just about every vicious racial, ethnic and religious stereotype about anyone who doesn't look like him.
For those who voted for him with all the best intentions - as in we need change and need to throw out the political elites who have taken us all for granted - all I can say is you're in for a rude awakening. You've been had, duped, conned, bamboozled. Now you'll have four years worth of opportunities to get that change you said you really wanted, because this man has always always been and will always be about satisfying his bottomless pit of self-seeking, narcissistic gratification. So, let's roll up our sleeves and get to work. Meanwhile, you're all always welcome here to have a laugh.
